edited August 2007 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
hi, i need to integrate a free wysiwyg into an admin panel of a website, i have never dealt with any wysiwyg soft, so please give a piece of advice on this,, i need it to be very easy to integrate, couse im not a pro in programming (even though i do make cms-based sites)... so please, recommend some free wysiwyg editor, which is easy to install and integrate,, thanks

    You 're talking about a textbox with elements like bold, centered and so on? AFAIK most popular ones are tinymce and fckeditor I like tinymce better, but that's up to you they both work by including a .js file and that's it! (of course there are config options) If you need it for vanilla try the tinymce or fckeditor extensions

    What AlexL said (although I prefer FCK :P).

    hey, don't doubt me, I'm god :p

    For tinymce in simple mode it's
    <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript" src="tiny_mce.js"></script> <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript"> tinyMCE.init({ mode : "textareas", theme : "simple" }); </script>
    <textarea name="whatever" rows="10" cols="40"> Some <b>element</b> <p>Some paragraph. <a href="">Some link</a></p> <img src="example_data/logo.jpg"> </textarea>

    And that's really it! nothing else to do :-)

    Not sure how it's done in fckeditor, but *should* be similar ;-)

    You should check spaw. It's easy to implement and support UTF8.
    <?php include("spaw2/"); $spaw = new SpawEditor("spaw1", 'default content'); ... ?> <form action=... <?php $spaw->show(); ?> </form>

    Also YUI 2.3.0 come with a wysiwyg editor.

    AFAIK every editor supports utf8? as all you have to do is set the form encoding to utf-8

    thanks all @ AlexL, i did not mean to offend but somehow i thought such extensive functionality required complex setup.. but now, after I have confidured tinymce and am now using it in native language (ru), I truly see its a piece of cake.. thanks guys,,, p.s. love lussumo for real appreciable help..
