Using the Source Editor to Create the Content of an Article

The source editor uses XHTML only and converts all rich text into the supporting XHTML. You should only use the source editor in cases where you need to disambiguate your rich text. Do not attempt to use the source editor unless you have knowledge in XHTML usage.

The source editor can be used to disambiguate the source code for your article. When using the rich text editor, there are custom tags that AudienceView software uses to create article formats and layouts. These can become ambiguous over the course of editing the article. It is understood that to use the source editor, you have a basic knowledge of XHTML and its appropriate tag format and content.

To use the source editor to create the content of an article, complete the following:

  1. Open the Content Management application from the AudienceView Desktop.
  2. Select the Articles tab.
    The Articles|Search page appears.
  3. Search for and select the article that you want to work with. For more information, refer to Content Management Articles-Search Page and Performing Searches.
    The Articles|Basic page appears.
  4. Select the Text tab.
    The Articles|Text page appears.
  5. Click 'Source' ( ).
    The Articles|Text page displays with the content of the article displayed in XHTML source.
  6. Edit or add to the content of your article using XHTML. Please see an XHTML source guide such as that found at
  7. To return to the Rich Text editor, click the 'Source' button ( ).
  8. Once you have inserted/formatted the text:
    • Click 'Create' to create a new article.
    • Click 'Update Details' to save changes to an existing article.

      A window confirms that the application created/updated the article.

  9. Click 'OK'.
