Description

Visual editor (also called WYSIWYG - what you see is what you get) is an editor you can use without having to enter special markup (like HTML, wiki tags). The editor bars resemble those of commonly used word processing programs.

Usage / Features

When activated, clicking the "edit" button will load the visual editor instead of the wiki text editor.

If this is not the case, for example because you are using a form to edit the page, the VisualEditor is also available via the "arrow" menu next to the edit button under "Edit".

Technical information

Configuration

The VisualEditor uses the Node.js service Parsoid. Because this service cannot be installed in some cases, this extension is deactivated by default.

After successful installation and configuration, the visual editor can be activated as described here.
