I have a GP site at staging5.nimblethimble.com. I would like to change the background color and padding of the Visual Editor widget in the Top Bar. However, when I edit that widget and enter values using the Text mode, the changes look good when I visit the site. However, the next time I do to the site, the changes are gone. When I look at the Visual Editor Text window, the changes in the CSS are not there.
Is this an issue with the Visual or TinyMCE editor, or is there something I can do?
Thanks for getting back to me. I was trying to make the background color of the “Announcement” the light blue ( #dbe4f7 ) that is used for the background in all of the content pages. In addition I was trying to add 10% left and right padding, along with 5% bottom padding.
I remember that the Tiny MCE Advanced editor had an option to preserve HTML when switching back to visual mode. Do you think that is what is happening here, since when I switch back to visual mode, the formatting that I implemented in the “text” mode is gone.
The problem is that I am designing this for someone who doesn’t have a lot of technical know how. She need to constantly change the announcement message, so I though that using the Visual widget would be easier for her to use. That is why I did not use the regular HTML widget.
