You can enter the tags directly into your content. However, to save time typing and remembering what the exact syntax is, Sourcerer comes with a handy editor button.

With the default editor in Joomla, the editor buttons are located in the top toolbar. If you're using another editor, such as JCE, the buttons may be located below the text input area.

You can use this editor button to get a modal popup with the Sourcerer code editor.

This can help you enter your code in a dedicated field. And with the Pro version you can use extra tabs to more easily insert specific CSS, JavaScript and PHP files and code.

After clicking on the "Insert" button, that code will be generated into your article/content editor.

We recommend you always use this editor button to enter code, as it prevents your content editor from messing up the code.

To edit code that is already in your article/content item, simply select the code - including the {source} tags, and click on the Sourcerer editor button. The selected code and attributes will appear in the Sourcerer editor. And after clicking on the "Insert" button, the new code will replace the selected code.
