I’ve added TinyMCE using the tinymce_filter extension, but it had to
do a few fixes to get it to work correctly. Even then, I’m not
particularly happy with TinyMCE or FCKEditor. They never quite do
what you want and I often have to hand edit the HTML they generate.

I just came across WMD myself and I’m very interested in it. Was
going to try to add it to the admin interface myself, but haven’t had
the time yet.

There are no Weapons of Mass Destruction in Radiant. :wink: I found the best
way to integrate WYSIWYG editors is to use a JavaScript DOM/window load
callback to replace the text areas. FCK, and IIRC, TinyMCE have this
ability, as should most.

Ooh, WMD’s gone MIT licensing. Now this is nice to see.

One more thing to play with…

Which leads to the inevitable…

WMD?? When I do a search for them, I’m getting a 404 File Not Found.
How odd.

I knew someone would end up cracking the weapons of mass destruction
joke. lol. If not, then I certainly would have.

I’ve used WYMeditor. I like the interface a lot, and my clients like it
too. It was a real pain to figure out what files to edit in order to
widen/lengthen the textarea and remove unneeded buttons (all these
WYSIWYGs are code-bloated), but I finally figured it out. I plan to add
this info to the summer reboot documentation.

That’s funny… I’m getting 402 Payment Required.
