How Do I Use the HTML View in the Rich Content Editor?

You can use the Rich Content Editor to embed content using HTML. The Rich Content Editor is used in features that support the editor (Announcements, Assignments, Discussions, Pages, Quizzes, or Syllabus).

When attempting to do custom HTML coding in Curve, you may discover that certain HTML codes do not work upon saving. This is because Curve will only support certain HTML elements for security reasons. This also applies to content copied and pasted from an external source. HTML tags that are not permitted may be stripped out of the Curve Rich Content Editor when you save your work.


Open Rich Content Editor


Open the Rich Content Editor using one of the Curve features which support the Editor.

Note: When in HTML view, you can toggle back by clicking the Ok link to save your progress or the Cancel link to undo the changes.

Note: When using the Rich Content Editor in Assignments, Discussions, Pages, and Quizzes, you have the option to Save & Publish. When using the Rich Content Editor in the Syllabus and Discussions pages, the Save button may appear as the Update Syllabus button or Post Reply button.
