Insert HTML Snippets

The Rich Text Editor lets an author insert HTML code fragments into a block of content by selecting it from a drop-down list. This drop down list is populated from files contained in the site's /rte-snippets directory. To insert a code snippet, click on the HTML code snippet button, as shown below

A dialog box is presented that displays a list of the files in the /rte-snippets directory, without the .cfm file extension. Selecting an item and clicking "Finish" will insert that code into the rich text editor at the current location of the cursor.

Only an administrator (or other who has access to the web server file system) can add HTML code fragments to the /rte-snippets directory. These files can contain any valid HTML.
