The optional IDE module provides an interface to edit theme or module files via your browser. This is useful when you only have browser-based access to Perforce Chronicle. This module needs to be enabled before you can use it. Please see Section 19.3, “Enabling and Disabling Modules” for more details. Also, the web server user needs to have write access to the files in the "sites" folder within your Chronicle installation in order to save any changes made.
The IDE module's editing interface does not currently work in Internet Explorer 7 or 8. It does work in Internet Explorer 9.
Once enabled, choose Manage > IDE to display the IDE interface:

File Tabs: Each file open for editing has its own tab. Click on a tab's label, which represents the name of the file being edited, to display that tab's file for editing. Click on the button to the right of a tab's label to close that tab and discard any unsaved changes.
Editor: The editor displays the file's contents. If the file represents a type that the editor recognizes, the file's syntax may be colorized, blocks of code can be collapsed, and certain kinds of syntax errors may be earmarked.
With a supported browser, you can add or replace files in a directory by dragging them from outside your browser onto the desired folder in the directory tree.
