Why interface change in 0.3?

Postby sitespark on Sat Apr 28, 2007 12:38 am

Hi All,

I wanted to A) Congratulate you on your fast-progress to date, very excited to hear that my 2 latest choices for CMS integration (JQuery & WYM) have converged!
B) I wanted to enquire as to why you chose to drop the layout info above each TAG element for 0.3; H1, H2, etc (WinXP, FireFox 2.0.0.3)?

After fiddling with 0.3 I can see the improvements, but I felt it's less intuitive, at first glance, than 0.2 - my 2c:
- 'Containers' hidden (shouldnt 'classes' be hidden, and 'containers' shown?)
- No icons to denote TAG element.
- No preview icon
- No paste from Word icon

All this may just be because it's Alpha release :? , interested in yr feedback :) .

Also: would it be easy to integrate FCK upload interface from clicking on Image icon? As per: http://verens.com/archives/2006/04/10/u ... r-own-cms/

Thanks again,

Morgan

Visual feedback hasn't been dropped - it's simply on the todo list ;)

OK. The skin system is still alpha, but it's quite easy to do that: in WYMeditor's options, put the following code:
Code: Select all
fPostInit: function(wym) {
  $j(wym._box).find(wym._options.sContainersSelector)
    .addClass("wym_panel")
    .removeClass("wym_dropdown");

   $j(wym._box).find(wym._options.sClassesSelector)
     .addClass("wym_dropdown")
     .find(sWYM_H2)
     .append("<span>&nbsp;&gt;</span>");
}

This code removes the class "wym_dropdown" from the containers panel and puts it on the classes panel.

Please explain?

- Events handlers (like clicking on buttons) are overridable, using code like:
Code: Select all
fPostInit: function(wym) {
$j(wym._box).find(wym._options.sToolSelector + "[@name='InsertImage']").unbind("click").click(function() {
  //do stuff
  return(false);
});

- The dialogs HTML is customizable (e.g. sDialogImageHtml option).
- It's easy to disable a button (aToolsItems)
- ... and to add another one (see e.g. fPostInit documentation and the Tidy plugin)

So I guess it will be easy to integrate a third-party upload interface, but I think it will be even easier when options like fPreDialog or fPostDialog will be available, so you can manipulate the generated dialog itself...

This was actually unneccessary; the same as previous question:
TAG element for 0.3; H1, H2, etc (WinXP, FireFox 2.0.0.3)?

My questions were answered; thanks!

What's the date for integration of these features/beta release?

The visual feedback is now on the svn. The demo has been updated, too.

The 'preview' and 'paste from word' buttons will soon be added.
Expect a beta during the next few weeks.

thanks for this info.

while we're at it: where do I find the images that provide the 'visual feedback'?

thanks again, for your great work.

Hi thanks for replies.

I was actually enquiring as to path to the images which provide the 'visual feedback'. I.e. where do I find .png/.gif for 'p', 'h1', etc?
