Liferay Portal offers a configurable and extendable WYSIWYG infrastructure that allows admins to:
- Choose between several out of the box editors like CKEditor (4.11.3), AlloyEditor (2.0.1) or TinyMCE (4.9.2).
- Provide specific configurations for the editor instances via the EditorConfigContributor framework
- Provide their own editor module implementations
Editors can be configured using an EditorConfigContributor. This, however, has proven to be complicated and requires development knowledge and deployment access.
The marketplace app AlloyEditor Manager was created to try to simplify the configuration process.
To provide new and simplified configuration mechanisms for the existing WYSIWYG instances.
