In this video I want to make some suggestions on how to improve Envato’s item description text editor!
🤔 ABOUT THIS VIDEO 👇
I am wondering what is preventing Envato from improving the (very) obsolete “Item Description” and “Profile” text editor. Or at least from extending the accepted HTML elements and attributes. Even just allowing the inline styling of elements (“style” attribute) would help us achieve much better and visually more compelling results for both the item descriptions and the profiles. Nowadays, we are bombarded with visually compelling content, even when receiving emails as every email client largely supports inline styling or even embedded CSS.
Considering that the reasons behind this long-overdue improvement cannot be technological since Envato can count on the one of the largest community of brilliant minds in the web development market, I am trying to figure out what the real reasons can be.
The following limits of the current editor are holding us authors back a lot and should be removed or greatly improved:
– it is not possible to embed elements from other websites (e.g. YouTube, Vimeo, etc.). This seems to be unreasonable and forces us, authors, to work around this limitation with solutions that are overcomplicated and not as effective, especially considering how easy it is to get the embedding code for any major video content website;
– stripping both the center tag and the style attribute from the allowed HTML elements, makes it basically impossible to center an element in the section. I have heard of people calculating the maximum width of the section and saving a picture with some transparent space on the sides in order to get a visually centered image… come on!!!
– stripping the target attribute from the a tag makes it impossible to decide when an external link should open in a new tab or window
– it would be great to add a “Preview” button to check the appearance of the item description before committing the change. This would avoid dozens of description updates just because of a mishap in what we put in the description.
I would love to hear your opinion about this matter.
