Greatcontent provides the option to setup specific layouts (structure and formatting) for your texts. These structure and formatting is mandatory for our writers and will be validated before publishing. Please follow the instructions to set-up this functionality for a specific project.

  3. Paragraphs: Use paragraphs (<p>)
  4.  Lists: Use bullet (<ul>) and numbered (<ol>) lists
  5. Tables: Use tables (<tr><th><td>). You can adjust the table (number of columns and rows etc.) while clicking on the “</>” Button

4) Result and check html

Steps:


While clicking on “Show HTML” Button you will find the result of your Template.

 

We will validate strictly the text when it’s written based on these requirements, this means that authors and proofreaders can only submit text with the exact formatting. 

In case you want to provide more freedom to the author to format the text e.g. first word bold, do not select this option and add these instructions to the briefing.


Finally you'll receive a text that is already formatted and styled.
