Activity Editing Node Content

We're now going to edit the story that we have just completed, and make some simple changes directly to the text. Depending on the user's permissions, the Node Content type, and other factors, editing the Node Content body will be done either in a Rich Text Editor, which we'll do in the next activity, or directly to the raw text, which we'll do now. Not all input types, Node Content types, or sites offer Rich Text editing. Therefore, learning to do it the 'old-fashioned' way is worthwhile; it is similar to learning to do long division, but much less painful.

We're still looking at the Story that we have created. Above the Story's body are two tabs (sometimes there will be more, depending on the settings): View and Edit. Click on the Edit tab, and the Edit page will appear with the Story in the Body box.

1. Let's make the corrections first:

° Change the F in For in the title to lowercase.

° Do the same in the first line of the body.

° Remove the quotation marks from around the CD title in the first line of the second paragraph.

° Change addrss to address in the first line of the final paragraph.

° Change to usable to is usable in the same sentence.

2. We're going to italicize both instances of the CD title. Before Music we'll put <em>. This is an opening HTML tag. There will be a matching closing tag. Not all HTML tags come in pairs, but those that format text usually do. The <em> tag stands for emphasis, and will italicize the text following it, unless some other formatting is defined for the tag pair.

We'll put the closing tag </em>, following Spleen in the first instance of the title, and another after Medicine in the second. Note that the slash in </em> is a forward slash.

3. We'll put a pair of tags around the artist's name too. Put <strong> before Frank, and </strong> after Bozak. If not redefined, then the <strong> tag makes the text following it bold.

4. In the following screenshot, we see the body text as it should appear after editing.

Chinese Medicine offers a fascinating musical journey through the organs and systems of Chinese medicine. In less than an hour of your time, the music can assist you in sending positive energy and light to each element of this ancient and widely practiced healing system. Each piece is composed to address a different pan of the body, and is usable either standalone or in association with any or every other piece. After all, some of us need more work on our spleen than others.

We glossed over the fields on the Content creation page before, but we should take a closer look at them before we move on to the next Node Content type and learning activity.
