I want to do something as simple as highlight (or bold but preferrably highlight) some of the text in the text block. I don’t see a way to do that when I edit the text block.
Searching for help in Google and on the OP site turned out like it often does; no useful results. I also posted the same question in the FB OP group. I got a “like” which I appreciate but that’s not real useful to me. Any ideas about how to do this? It’s OK if I have to add a little CSS. I’ve done that a few places already.
You’re correct. WP is just HTML and CSS under the skin. And yes. OptimizePress uses the built in editor. When using OP, you have a choice of using either the plugin or the theme. I’m using the theme because I’m using the OP blog settings. Do I have to do that? No. But I find it with the theme to be easier to give the site and the blog a consistent look and feel.
I’d already tried to bold some of the text with the editor and saw that it wasn’t bolded. I then looked at the HTML behind the text tab and saw the tags. When I saw it wasn’t working, I posted in the FB group and here. However, I didn’t know about the two plugins on the page you shared. I just tried CKEditor and it doesn’t work with OP. The editor doesn’t even open. That’s no surprise but OP has issues with a number of plugins. The good news is the RAD Text highlighter plugin works perfectly. Here’s the weird thing. The bolding is now working, too. 🙂 Thanks for the tip about those plugins.
