Accessibility Checker

The Accessibility Checker option is provided inside Loree Editor to check if there are any accessibility issues on the page, once the page is created. It checks the HTML and highlights the elements with the error and description.

Now, we can see that the Accessibility checker option displays the total number of accessibility issues like a notification on the accessibility icon when we click on the save to LMS option. Click on the Check Accessibility button in the top right corner it will show the list of improvements that need to be done for the template. This allows the user to go through all the discovered issues and fix them without leaving the accessibility checker and it also provides some quick fixes in the accessibility tray itself.

The accessibility checker tray will be responsive based on the device of the user. For large resolution screens like Desktop and Laptop, the Accessibility checker will open on the right side section of the screen and for small screen resolutions like Tablet, Mobile, the Accessibility checker will be at the bottom of the editor and will also have a separate scroll bar in the checker.

 

The new accessibility checker does have the privilege to switch between the number of issues in the editor. The accessibility checker tray itself provides an arrow key to navigate among the issues and it will also show the user the severity of the accessibility issue for the particular elements. The severity will be based on Critical, Serious, Moderate, and Minor issues and will also have the details of the issues and an option to fix them as a quick fix in the checker itself. We can also click on the colored dot in the editor to move to that particular issue. Once the issue is fixed the severity color tagged in the editor will be removed. We can update the quick fix and click on the apply button to make the required changes. There is also a re-check button on the checker to check for the issues again without going back to the editor.

When you are working on a particular issue it will be shown in a colored box based on the severity of the Loree editor as marked below:

If there are any issues that cannot be fixed as a quick fix in the accessibility checker, those issues can be fixed in the Loree editor directly and the instructions to fix the issue will be provided in the accessibility checker tray.

If the page content has no accessibility issues, it will show the below message:

If the user fixes all the accessibility checker issues on the page, then the first issue will have the below message on the accessibility checker tray:

 

Viewing Components

Loree 2.0 allows users to view the various outlines of each section, component row, or column on the screen.

View Code

The View Code option is for advanced users; This feature enables users to view the underlying HTML and CSS code for the course pages. The “View Code” selection can be made in the top menu bar, as shown below:

 

Upon selection on the Toolbar, a new window will pop up (modal), displaying the HTML/CSS content of the page.

At the bottom of the view code window, an option to export the code in compressed form is available (‘Export to ZIP’). This file is saved in the download folder of the web browser.

This functionality is provided in order to allow the user to make design modifications directly onto the HTML / CSS code in their preferred editor.

Once a user clicks on “Code” the below screengrab will appear:

 

Loree 2.0 allows the user to view the code for either the entire page, row, column, or element. This enables the user to specifically and easily target areas of the entire page or section.

Edit Code

The edit code feature allows the user to update HTML and CSS content within a selected component (also referred to as a block) or for the entire page content on the editor.

If the user clicks on Edit Code with no selected contents, it will fetch the whole editor page content and if a particular block is selected then, it will fetch the particular block’s HTML and CSS properties.

 

Once the Edit code is clicked (Code, in between Redo and Accessibility checker options) based on the Feature list in the admin dashboard feature configuration, the editor block will be fetched and you can copy only the HTML or CSS property just by clicking the Copy Code button on the top right corners

or click the Edit button to edit the HTML and CSS content:

Pre-determined column sizes are provided based on what has been generally used. We have provided six options as shown below.

 

Once a selection has been made, a secondary menu will appear which allows the user to determine the size of the columns based on percentage. (For example, 50 / 50 will split the column sizes equally)

 

Back to the top

Custom Rows

Loree 2.0 allows users to design, create and share custom rows for their own use or for the whole organization.

Once a row has been designed, the user is able to save the row (please see below under “Editing a Row” for further instructions on saving a row) and use the custom row in the future.

Once saved, the user is able to add a new row, and simply click on “Custom Row”, as per the below screengrab:

The user will then be presented with a new left-hand side menu, which is as below screengrab. This allows the user to either search for the custom row, select a category by which the custom row was saved, or find a custom row based on either Global, My, or Shared Rows.

Global Rows

Global rows are rows that have been approved by the admin of Loree version 2.0 for global distribution. This enables all users of Loree from an entire organization to access the custom rows that have been made. Only the admin is able to declare whether or not a custom row is distributed globally.

My Rows

My Rows are rows that have been created by the user and can only be seen by the user who created the row. When saving a custom row, this will always show in the My Rows section.

Shared Rows

Shared rows are rows that have been shared with various departments within an organization. The admin can declare that only certain departments from an organization have access to a custom row. For example, a school may only want a custom row to be seen by the Science and Math department, therefore only making the particular custom row in question available for Science and Math departments Loree users.

Editing a Row

Once a row has been created, the user is now able to edit the row by either clicking on the row area or by clicking the row menu, as shown below (The small blue menu icon, upper left corner of the row)

 

Once selected, the menu will provide the user with four options, including:

  • Save Row

  • Duplicate

  • Delete

  • Edit Row

  • Row move up or down

 

Save Row

Once selected, a pop-up (modal) will appear, which allows the user to save the row for use at a later time; this gives the user the ability to both name the row and classifies it under a category.

 

 

Duplicate

Users are able to copy the entire row by selecting the duplicate option. This allows for quick and easy “copy and pastes” of the entire row and its content. *Particularly useful if the content is very repetitive.

Edit Row

The user is given the ability to change Margins, Padding, Background, and or change the row layout by selecting the fourth menu option.

 

Back to the top

Margin & Padding

All margin and Padding are defined by pixels and are preset as margin: 0px and Padding: 10px.

Background Color

Background allows the user to select a color for the particular row selected. The user can choose the background color through a color scaling tool using their mouse, or if a particular color is known the user can either update the background color by the HEX code or by the RGBA code. The user can also choose colors from the Global colors. Once we have selected a color it is automatically saved. If the user wants to remove the background color he can click on the clear option or we can also undo the changes using undo option on the top menu.

Row Move Up or Down

Rows are able to be moved either up or down depending on where you would like them positioned on the page. The option to move the rows or columns will appear once the user has made 2 or more rows, columns, or elements. Please refer to the below screengrab where you will notice the additional arrows at the far right of the blue menu.

 

By simply clicking on these arrows the entire row, column or element will move position.

Columns Options

Loree 2.0 allows users to easily add content (elements) to each particular column that has been made on the page. Once a user clicks on a column the “plus” button will appear, which opens up a side menu, as shown below:

 

 

Each element is able to be individually customized based on individual preferences and also allows for custom elements to be made and placed into the columns.

Images

As a Loree 2.0 user, selecting the images option will now give you multiple pre-defined options, which easily add images, images with text, or both in combination. Selecting one of the options from below will add the content to the particular column that has been selected.

 

Once one of the above has been selected, a pop-up (modal) will appear that will prompt you to either choose an image that has been previously uploaded or to upload a new image/link of an image.

 

Adding image

While adding an image it is mandatory to update the file name and the Alt text, while adding an image if we don't update any word or only update space in the Alt text box, add image button will be disabled. So now it will be mandatory to update some text in the alt text box or click Decorative image to add an image.

 

Image crop

Loree editor now provides the option of making the user's own shapes like a circle or square of the image while applying to the page while designing it. It will be the same way by uploading the images, a little step is before adding to the editor, the image will have a Crop Image button on the image itself. By clicking on the Crop image, the user can update the shape of the image. For the image crop, a set of CSS properties has to be added in the Canvas themes to get the image crop reflected in Canvas too.

When we click on the Crop image, while hovering and selecting the crop options (like circle or square) it will highlight in Loree blue like other elements in Loree until the selection is removed.

The image crop is not possible for banner images as the banner image have some other enhancements on the upcoming releases.
Note: The Crop Image option will only be available for images that are available for upload or in the course images. Some of the external images can’t be uploaded, therefore restricting this Crop Image option for users.

Restrict Image Duplication

  1. When we save a page to LMS, it will compare the image file with the name and extension first.

  2. If the name and extension are different in S3 and course files, then the file will be uploaded to the LMS course files.

  3. If the file name and extension are the same in S3 and course files, then the file will be hashed to compare the images.

  4. If the images are different after hashing, then the image file will be uploaded.

  5. If the images are the same after hashing, then the image file will be restricted to upload.

  6. The S3 images on the page while we Save to LMS will only be compared with the above steps and no images will be saved again in the LMS.

Note: While checking the image name for duplication, the spaces are filled with %20, and we will remove %20 while comparing the file name while duplication, therefore, if the File name itself has %20, that will be removed while comparing, in that case, the file with %20 and without %20 might get duplicated since we will remove %20 while comparing.

Videos

Videos are easily uploaded to the page, and similar to images, Loree 2.0 allows users to choose from predefined layouts to assist in completing the page. See below for a screenshot of the layout, and options:

 

Once one of the above has been selected, a pop-up (modal) will appear that will prompt you to either choose a video that has been previously uploaded or insert a link to a video (YouTube, Vimeo, or other).

The table feature allows

the user to easily create and add a table to the page. There are 4 pre-defined styles of tables that are as shown below:

 

Once selecting the table from the “left-hand menu”, the menu will auto-populate onto the page and the design menu will appear on the left-hand side.

 

As shown in the above screengrab, the user has the ability to select the number of rows and columns based on the size of the table required. The default table size is 4 rows and 4 columns.

The editor now allows the user to apply styles for the entire row or the entire column, individual rows or columns to update the Margins, Padding, Font style, Font Family, and Font size. This is more flexible and gets easy customization for their own table users.

Enable the ‘Select entire Row’ and ‘Select entire Column’ checkbox to select the entire row and column.

Alignment

Alignment can assist the user in determining where the position of the table is in relation to the page. Alignment has three options which are, left align, center align and right align.

 

Size

The user is able to determine how wide the table is across the page based on a percentage of the page size. By default, the table is set to 100%, which therefore spans across the full width of the page. As an example, the table size shown in the screengrab below has been reduced to 80%.

Space

Margin pertains to the area directly outside of the table. Adding margin to either top, bottom left or right will change the border dimensions of the table. All margins are adjustable using pixels as a standard of measure.

Padding pertains to the area directly inside the table. Adding padding to either to top, bottom left or right will move the content within the border of the table. All padding is adjustable using pixels as a standard of measure.

Border

The border of the table is able to customized by width, color, and style. 4 options of style are able to be applied to the line, which is detailed in the screengrab below:

 

Color

Color enables the user to change the color of the background within the table. As per the below screen grab, the color red or HEX code #FF0000 was selected or RGBA Code 255, 0, 0, 255 was selected and applied to the table.

Deleting Column

Once selected a pop-up or modal is presented to the user which either allows the user to do one of two:

  • Delete the entire column or

  • Clear the content in the column

 

The first option “Delete the entire column” will clear the entire column field and all the content within. Any pre-defined margins or layouts of the column will be deleted.

The second option “clear the content”, will only delete the specific content within the column, however, will leave the layout as it was.

 

Table Content customization

Loree 2.0 editor allows the user to apply styles for the entire row or the entire column, individual rows or columns to update the Margins, Padding, Font style, Font Family, and Font size. This is more flexible and gets easy customization for their own table users.

Enable the ‘Select entire Row’ and ‘Select entire Column’ checkbox to select the entire row and column.

Container

Alignment

The container is able the be aligned either by default to the left or can be center or right-aligned.

 

Size

The size can be adjusted based on width, this can be changed based on percentage size, as per the below screenshot.

 

Space

Margin pertains to the area directly outside of the container. Adding margin to either top, bottom left or right will change the border dimensions of the container. All margins are adjustable using pixels as a standard of measure.

Padding pertains to the area directly inside the container. Adding padding to either to top, bottom left or right will move the content within the border of the container. All padding is adjustable using pixels as a standard of measure.

Border

Duplicate, copy, paste, delete, and move up and down icons are available for the specific menu item.

In Navigation with the image aligned left, the menu bars can be customized with an image on the left corner and text on the right edge. Text can be customized using the style options.

Custom Elements

Custom Elements allows users to have quick and easy access to all elements that have been made previously and saved in Loree 2.0.

Creating a custom element

Once a column has been created to your desire, the user is able to save the column as a custom element. See the below screengrab, detailing the initial step:

The top-left icon in the column section menu is the save column button. Once this is clicked a pop-up (modal) will appear, see below:

 

The user is then able to name the custom element and choose a category that the particular element belongs. If no categories are saved, a new category is able to be created and a category name text box will appear (see below):

 

Adding a custom element to a column

Once a custom element has been made and saved, it will be added to “My Elements” (See below for further details on My Elements), which will allow quick access for the user to add into the column selected.

“This is a good example” is a custom element that was created for the purposes of this User Guide. Once the user selects the desired element it will automatically populate in the column that was originally selected and prompt the user to either cancel the action or add the custom element. See the below screengrab for visual reference:

 

Global Elements

Global elements are elements that have been approved by the admin of Loree version 2.0 for global distribution. This enables all users of Loree from an entire organization to access the custom elements that have been made. Only the admin is able to declare whether or not a custom row is distributed globally.

My Elements

My elements are elements that have been created by the user and can only be seen by the user who created the element. When saving a custom element, this will always show in the My Elements section.

Shared Elements

Shared elements are elements that have been shared with various departments within an organization. The admin can declare that only certain departments from an organization have access to custom elements. For example, a school may only want a custom element to be seen by the Science and Math department, therefore only making the particular custom element in question available for Science and Math departments Loree users.

Embed URL Block

Loree 2.0 introduces the “Embed URL“ block for the convenience of updating the iframes in the editor directly. For example, YouTube iframe links or any iframe links to get to the page.

External Tools

Lore introduces the “External Tools“ Block inside the Loree editor. Here you can link your External Tools with the Loree editor and can directly Insert, Add and Edit any content to a Loree page from your Linked External tools.
