How WYSIWYG Editors Work

What's The Point?

WYSIWYG stands for What You See Is What You Get. They are an intuitive way to add styling and formatting to an open text field. At the moment, there are three locations that utilize Gallus Golf's WYSIWYG editor:
  1. Offer Locker
  2. Featured News
  3. Pop-Ups
The purpose of this editor is to give Gallus Golf app admins the flexibility they need to convey information in a simple manner.
