Server settings[edit | edit source]

Before you can use VisualEditor in BlueSpice, you have to activate it in your installation:

In the BlueSpice installation directory, locate the following files inside the folder „var\www\settings.d“:


  1. Remove the line containing the „return;“ command in both files and save them.
  2. Restart your web server (recommended).

Checking the Configuration manager[edit | edit source]

In case the VisualEditor is still not appearing, check if VisualEditor is shown as activated in the configuration manager of your wiki:

  1. Go to Global actions > Config manager
  2. Make sure the checkbox "Enable VisualEditor for BlueSpice extensions" is activated:

By default, VisualEditor is only activated in the main (Pages) and the User namespaces.

Activating VisualEditor for a namespace[edit | edit source]

  1. Go to Global actions > Namespace manager In the column "VisualEditor", you can see which namespaces have VisualEditor activated. They have a green check mark.
  2. Click the wrench icon in the "Actions" column. The wrench appears, when you hover over the row of the namespace:


  1. Activate the checkbox for VisualEditor in the dialog window and click "Done":


  1. Refresh the Namespace manager page (F5) to confirm the change.

VisualEditor should now be working correctly in all namespaces that actively use it.

Customizing the link to the help pages[edit | edit source]

By default, the help link for VisualEditor links to the help page for VisualEditor on the BlueSpice helpdesk.

The link can be changed to go to a custom URL:

To configure the url, add:

`$GLOBALS['bsgVisualEditorConnectorHelpUrl'] = 'https://your_url';`

to 'LocalSettings.php' or the appropriate config file.
