Expresso provides you with a WYSIWYG editor fieldtype for channel entries. Its main aim is to allow intuitive content editing for your users while respecting your site's design. It is integrated with EE's native file manager, allowing users to upload images and files.
Expresso is compatible until EE5 and is no longer being actively developed. Please consider an alternative add-on for EE6+.
A WYSIWYG editor should be lightweight and easy to use, and should not break your design. That is what Expresso sets out to do. There is a choice of either a full, basic or light toolbar, although all toolbars aim to only contain the most crucial text editing buttons. Strict precautions are in place so that pasting text from word or other sources won’t produce ugly html and won’t mess up your design when viewed on the site. You can define the css to be used within the editor so that the site’s design is reflected there, making it easier to see the end result before publishing.
Expresso uses ExpressionEngine’s native file manager so you will feel right at home when uploading and browsing files.
Expresso integrates with NavEE, Structure and Pages and adds links to your pages inside the link dialog. The link, images and other dialogs are also style to match the control panel theme.
Expresso is fully compatible with Matrix, Low Variables, Bloqs, and Content Elements so you can have full WYSIWYG functionality in your third-party fieldtypes.
Expresso is covered by the OEM Closed Distribution License (CDL) of CKEditor.
