  • Some skins have two editors available; the default editor, and a second editor which is usually a WYSIWYG editor (the second editor is used by hitting the WYSIWYG link in pattern or classic skins). If COMPOSER is not set, the second editor will work the same as the default editor. If the WysiwygPlugin is installed and it is set to 'kupu' (the default), then the Kupu WYSIWYG editor will be enabled. You can change the setting to use any editor that is enabled by setting the cover parameter on the edit URL.
    • Set COMPOSER = kupu
