1. Is this product compatible with "Joomla!"?
2. If "yes", how to make it work?
Best Wishes

To use WYM with Joomla! you'd need it to be packed in some kind of plug-in/componetnt/mambot or whatever they're called these days. However I have no idea whether or not such a package is available. Have you tried to search for it?

This would be a plugin, Joomla has the ability to support various editors. Sadly, it seems no one has officialy ported WYMEditor yet :(
I wanted to but I just had one quick project that involved Joomla so I never got around to do it.

This is the editor list on the Joomla site: ... Itemid,35/

2. Download WYMeditor from

<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery/jquery.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="wymeditor/jquery.wymeditor.pack.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
jQuery(function() {
