The procedure to turn on track changes in the Ephox EditLive is not very well documented. Here are the steps I followed.
- Copy the file editlive_config.xml.jsp from
(You will need to create that target ephox directory).
- Rename the file config.xml.jsp.
- Edit the file using the instructions found here: https://ibm.biz/BdXCGm. You will be uncommenting the track changes menu options. Don't set enableTrackChanges to true unless you want to turn on track changes automatically when you begin editing a field!
- Run the following ConfigEngine command:
./ConfigEngine.sh configure-wcm-ephox-editor-custom-configuration -DWasPassword=<password> -DPortalAdminPwd=<password>
- Restart the server.
If everything goes as planned, you'll see the "Track Changes" menu appear after the Table menu when you begin to edit a field.
