New Editor Now Live

New Editor Now Live

Last week we announced that making text bold, italic, blue would soon be a lot easier with the brand new editor.

Starting today, you will notice the following tool bar on top of text boxes where you write product descriptions and content.

You should be familiar with this editor as it’s similar to ones you may have seen in other solutions. Simply highlight text and click on the formating button on the tool bar and the formating will appear.

As we have seen last week, inserting images is a breeze. Today we will show you how to add a YouTube video.

Let’s insert this video review on the Lexus GS Series product page of the Shopify demo store.

First we need to get the YouTube code that will be inserted on the product page. Simply go to the YouTube video page and click on the Embed button under the video. A settings section will appear, copy the snippet code.

Now let’s go to the Lexus GS Series product page in the Shopify Admin. We are going to edit the description, place the cursor where we want the video to be inserted, click on the Insert button from the editing bar and select Video.

A small window will appear, simply paste the snippet code and click Insert.

Click on Update to save the change. The video is now in the product description.

Thanks John for developing the new editor. We hope you enjoy it and share with us your feedback!

    Thankyou. It’ll make such a difference. My only problem is that I can’t use it on the title. I want to put “SALE” in red but it won’t hi-lite anything other than in the description. Is it something I’m doing wrong?

    Hey great news, thanks, anything that makes adding content easier is a big help.
    Now if I could just figure out how to get my domain name ranking for my shop it would be great.
