Formatting Text in Forms

Greetings everyone,

I was just wondering what everyone does to allow members of their app
the ability to format their text when they post information? I haven’t
really found the de-facto RoR online editor. What’s the standard
practice here?

Thanks for your help!

You’re asking a pretty open question.

You can use TinyMCE or FCKEditor for WYSIWYG editors in text boxes.

Thanks Ryan,

I’ve been down every type of editor, whether it’s a textile editor
(RedCloth, BlueCloth, Markdown, etc.), or WYSIWYG (TinyMCE, FCKEditor,
WidgEdit, etc.). I think I was just looking for a simple, “this is what
everyone uses” type editor. Something I could rely on and know nothing
about. However, after reading some of the Peepcode Plugins PDF, I’ve
learned that I shouldn’t seek things that I could not originally
program. So, instead, I bought the new Agile Web D. with Rails
3rd Edition (beta) and am focused on learning enough to program what I
need.

When I’m ready, I want to program a textile editor that will be perfect
for my needs, and my members. Not too heavy, nor complex - easy to
maintain and build upon. :slight_smile: Thanks for your reply!
