Edit Mode


This switches the editor between Basic Edit Mode and Advanced Edit Mode.

Basic Edit Mode allows you to freely edit all basic HTML pages within your site without the need for special setup. In Basic mode (the default), the editor will not allow you to edit files that have server-side scripting, such as .php, .asp, or .cfm pages. If it works fine for your site, then there is no need to change it.  

Advanced Edit Mode gives you control over which pages can be edited, and what parts of a page can be edited. The global settings for Advanced mode are "All" and "None". These are assumptions about how the editor should treat your pages. If the setting is "All", then the editor will assume all pages are EDITABLE unless otherwise indicated by a special comment you place in the page's HTML code. If the setting is "None", then the editor assumes that all pages are LOCKED unless otherwise indicated by a special comment you place in the page's HTML code. Example: if you want to be able to edit all pages in your site, except for one page, then you would choose "All" and then place a comment in the page that you want to lock from being edited. Conversely, if you want only several pages to be editable, and the rest of the site to be locked, then choose "None" and insert comments in the pages you want to be editable.    

Page Type tags:

<-- NEEditMode = "basic" --> This sets the page for basic editing, leaving the full page open to editing.

<-- NEEditMode = "locked" --> This locks the page, preventing it from being edited.

<-- NEEditMode = "advanced" --> This indicates that the page has designated editable region(s) within it.
The editable regions are defined by the following tags: <-- NESpotEditBegin --> and <!-- NESpotEditEnd --> .

Here are the rules: You may have more than one editable region per page. If there is more than one editable region, then each region must be named differently, and each region must open and close separately. There can be no nested edit tags. Make sure to place both the open and close tags within a table cell, or around a full table. Do not split a table with the tags. In other words, do not enclose a table row, or a few table cells within the tags, as this will cause the page to break.
