New feature: content now editable on mobile touch devices
Today we rolled out another major system upgrade. As usual, many of the changes are behind-the-scenes enhancements, but there are a couple of exciting new features you will definitely want to know about.
The first is another milestone in making the system more accessible from mobile and touch devices. Recently, we enabled touch devices to access element menus and settings screens. Now we’ve made the content areas themselves editable. Previously it was impossible to edit the content in text elements, blog posts, and calendar events because of the limitations of mobile web browsers. The new update allows our system to recognize when you access it from a mobile browser, and it provides you with an alternate content-editing tool.
The new editing interface is quite simple, but you will need to be familiar with basic HTML tags (like <p>, <h3>, <br>, and <ul>) to enter content effectively. To access this new editing interface, login and pull up any content-editable element on a mobile device. The new interface will appear, allowing you to insert content and HTML into the content regions.
