I don't know which text editor I'm using.

Short Answer:
If your formatting toolbar is blue, you're using TinyMCE.
If your formatting toolbar is green, you're using Kupu.

Long Answer:
There are many differences between the Kupu and TinyMCE text editors. We strongly recommend using TinyMCE. If you would like to change your text editor from one to the other, click here to learn how.
