Add callout CSS to “Formats” section of TinyMCE

Requested by: Jamie Edwards

Status: Completed

Change to something that already exists?: Yes
Requires a new CMS Component?: No
Requires New Functionality?: Yes
Estimated Completion Date: Completed April 2021


Each time we setup a single line callout, we have to add some custom CSS to make it look right. I want to add the required CSS to the Formats dropdown in TinyMCE. Something like this:

text-align: center;
margin-bottom: 0;

[Update: Feasible – ‘Single Line Callout’. Some exploration with UR has happened for potential of additional ‘alerts’ formats. -SQ]

[Update 2: Low priority, low value. ETA updated to Q1 2020 -SQ]

[Update 3: RL met with IT web team to review new CLF design elements. Updated date to Q2 due to COVID and various UBCO CMS outages/interruptions in March 2020 ]

[Update 4: No wells. New ‘Mega box’ component will combine other enhancement requests:

[Update 5: JE developing new alerts/’Mega Box’ component ]
[Update 6: This is a separate enhancement and will be worked on separate from the Mega, Shadow, and Alert boxes]
