Using the WYSIWYG

WYSIWYG stands for 'what you see is what you get'. These are extremely common - you use one any time you enter text, images, etc. into an online form. They have varying degrees of functionality and can differ in their formatting cues & capabilities.



When creating your campaign description, it's always best to start it from scratch in the WYSIWYG itself. If you create it someplace else (a Word document, Google Doc, etc.) there's no guarantee that the formatting from that program will match the formatting of the WYSIWYG, meaning that it won't all display the same way it did in the other application you were using.

If you've been using a 3rd party application like Word to create your campaign description, it's best to remove the formatting before pasting into the WYSIWYG. There are several ways to do this - here are a few:

  1. Use a site like StripHTML - click here.
  2. In gmail, click the 'remove formatting' button: 
  3. Use the same button in the top of a Google Doc: 

If you need help or have questions, you can always live chat or send a message to the WeDidIt support team using the green tab in the bottom right of the screen.
