WYSIWYG Editor

edited April 2006 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Just thinking that it would be nice to have a WYSIWYG Editor for basic uses, to facilitate reading of comments

    Yeah, that would be really nice.. Maybe use the widgEditor by Cameron Adams?

    any further thoughts on this? i would definitely implement one if i knew how.

    my users are used to phpbb and are asking me how to make things bold/italic etc. and it's a struggle trying to teach them html lol.

    I've been working on getting TinyMCE working. "Yeah, that would be really nice.. Maybe use the widgEditor by Cameron Adams?" Doesn't work on safari, for one.

    looks good although it does say... "Some of these plugins will only be visible on MSIE due to the lack of some support in FF"

    which is a little worrying

    TinyMCE is implemented in WP2.0. I use it in FF and haven't seen anything that doesn't work, though it uses only the basic options.

    and it sucks ass, it was the first thing I turned off as soon as I got WP2 running

    I like the fact that the posting interface is simple in vanilla. I suppose this would be ideal for users that don't have html knowledge. If this does get intergrated, maybe it would be a good idea to have an option to turn it on and off in your account settings as I wouldn't use this feature.

    Anyone up for making this extension?

    I might make one when Safari gets built in WYSIWYG. I would only do Firefox and Safari myself though. Someone else can do IE and Opera =P

    Look at this. http://www.kevinroth.com/rte/demo.htm http://php-hispano.net/archivos/Scripts/242/1.0RC3 (for download, not preview) The last link is to easy to install ...

    I'd love to have this, so I could use Html extension instead of Textile. All I would want are a few unobtrusive formatting buttoms, for links, paragraph, lists, bold, italic, etc.

    I know there is a great little wisywig for vBulletin - they use it on www.bimmerforums.com I am not sure what it is called that they use though. Sorry.

    That's a nice little RTE. Might have to play with it a little and see if it takes the same kind of performance hit as some of the AJAX RTE code does. (Like Dojo ... unbearably slow!!)

    Why not use FCKEditor? Its free and works in all browsers. Its also CSS friendly.
