    Help with Umbraco symbols

    I'm trying to edit content for our NFP website, but the content page has this weird shape on it.

    enter image description here

    Any help on how I can get to the text (there is a working published page) and edit it?

    Hi Andrew

    The Orange dotted box?

    If so...

    This represents 'a macro' that has been inserted into the rich text area.

    To edit parameters that might be used for the Macro, and providing the text you wanut to edit - if you can place your cursor inside the dots / highlight with the box - and press the Macro button on the rich text editor (the two cogs - between the photo and insert table options) - then this should open the Macro parameter editor window, and any options to edit content in the Macro,

    If there are no parameters to edit, then the text may be 'hardcoded' in the Macro implementation - click on the <> button to view the source of the rich text area, and you should be able to determine the 'name' of the Macro.

    Then switch to Developer section of Umbraco find the Macro in the Macros list = and find the name of the file that implements the Macro, there are four different ways to implement a Macro but if you are lucky the MacroPartialView will be accessable via Developer section in the 'Macro Partial Views' list - inside this file might be the hardcoded text you'd like to edit...

    ... apologies if you are not referring to the orange box!
