How to Edit Text with the Text Editor

Your Agent123 Text Editor was designed to work like Microsoft Word or any similar Word Processing program.

Help
The Text Editor Module is where you edit existing content as well as add new content. Once changes are Updated they will instantly appear in the content on live pages. Also, there is a 1hour limit on inactivity in this system. This means that if you add text and/or images to content and do not save the changes and are then inactive for more than 1hour, the system will then require you to sign in again and your changes will be lost.

Below is a list of the targets available and their definitions.

Predefined targets are:
_blank loads the page into a new browser window.
_self loads the page into the current window.
_parent loads the page into the frame that is superior to the frame the hyperlink is in.
_top cancels all frames, and loads in full browser window.

*NoteYour Agent123 website defaults with the target not set, which means that your link, once clicked, will load within your Agent123 site.
