Configuring the Editor

The WYSIWYG editor is enabled by default, and can be used to edit content on CMS pages and blocks, and in products and categories. From the configuration you can activate or deactivate the editor, and elect to use static, rather than dynamic, URLS for media content in product and category descriptions.

TinyMCE 5 is the default WYSIWYG editor. The implemented version (5.8.1) offers an improved user experience and supports a wide range of WYSIWYG plugins. TinyMCE 3 was deprecated in the 2.4.0 release and removed in the 2.4.3 release. TinyMCE 4 is now removed in the 2.4.4 release.
