doc:WYSIWYG

Idea for solving some of the WYSIWYG issues:

EXAMPLE
::Text::

!More Heading 
Wiki Syntax
{DIV()}Some Stuff Seen Only When Using Wiki-editor{DIV}

{WYSIWIG(id=“wysiwyg_area_01, group=“editors“)}<p>My Wysiwyg</p>{WYSIWIG}

Wiki Syntax again
{SPLIT()}{SPLIT}


WYSIWYG plugin can “protect” the wiki syntax from being messed. Additionally by having an id and groups we could achieve pages with different edit permissions per section. Done for Tiki9 with PluginWYSIWYG.

Status/RoadMap


For Tiki 6 see new notes here: wysiwyg editor update to CKEditor.

The rest of this page is probably mostly obsolete...

Since Tiki 1.10, Wysiwyg in Tiki is implemented using FCKEditor. It is tagged as experimental as it’s not as reliable as it should.

Some further (recent - July 2009) observations and issues


A short description on trying to use the WYSIWYG editor in a new site deployment using Tiki 3.0 are available here
