I have tried:
TinyMCE - would not let me 'edit' content from the DB
FCKEditor - could not get it installed
widgEditor - won't let me create content, only edit it
RTE - couldn't get it to work

Please if you have used a good rich text editor in a RoR CMS system
that lets users create and edit content to and from a DB, tell me how
and which one. Please I have been working on this for two days now :(

Thanks - K

You seem to be having quite a number of problems.  Are you sure your
browser is compatible?  I use Safari and none of those work properly
for me.  In our apps we've been using TinyMCE, but I have to use
firefox for it to work.

I am not using safari - testing on Firefox and IE. I think that I am
having a lot of problems too - its driving me crazy.

xstandard requires users to install a plugin - I don't want to make
them do that - so xstandard is not an option - thanks though.

You could also try spaw,

I've used it with success in FF and IE

I am going with TinyMCE - I got it to work beautifully.

I like TinyMCE because it seems less buggy than the others - it seems
to work find for IE and Mozilla (not extensively tested yet) - easily
configures -  and it looks the best

I was quite happy with xinha .

I abandoned widgeditor because I found users pasting from other
applications. Also  I couldn't see how to add undo/redo.

But I am switching to tinymce because it works in more browsers
(Opera/Safari)

(See stephansmap.org for current xinha deployment. Note: the editor is
invoked dynamically)
