Bounty offered for two features added

Postby wilhelm on Sun Jan 14, 2007 5:16 pm

Beautiful.

I have looked at TinyMCE and similar projects, but they are all horribly bloated and filled with various presentational features I do not want. WYMeditor, however, is almost perfect for my needs. It's simple and elegant.

It is, however, missing two essential features I need before I can implement it in my own projects:

1. I need fallback to a simple <textarea> where javascript is not enabled or in unsupported browsers.
2. I need support for the Opera browser. As I work in the QA department of Opera myself, I should be able to dig up any information required to implement this.

My own javascript skills are unfortunately very poor, so I am unable to fix this myself. But I will gladly offer a bounty of €100 in cash, candy or toys to anyone willing to help me out with this. Please respond in this thread if you are interested.

Wilhelm,

I am the newest member of the WYMeditor dev team. The fact that you work in QA for Opera is very fortunate for us. Please post a description of how you would like the textarea fallback to work, with as much detail as you can offer and I will bring this issue up with the dev team.

I would imagine that both of your requests are issues we will resolve. I cannot make any predictions about when but we certainly want to support all browsers if possible.

We will keep your offer to dig up info for us in mind.

Thanks for being part of the community.

Sincerley,
Scott

TinyMCE has a very nice solution for this. First you simply create your form as you normally would, without any WYSIWYM magic:

Code: Select all
<form action='foo' method='post'>
<textarea name='foo'></textarea>
</form>


This is what is visible in browsers where JavaScript is not available; a simple textarea where you can write HTML. Through inobtrtrusive JavaScript the editor is included in modern browsers:

Code: Select all
<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript" src="../jscripts/tiny_mce/tiny_mce.js"></script>
<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
tinyMCE.init({
   mode : "textareas"
});
</script>


And that's it.

I would imagine that both of your requests are issues we will resolve.


Great..(c:

I do however have a third request too: support for multiple editors in one page. I understand that this is being worked on.

Wilhelm,

I have been working this weekend on the very thing you described. It is not difficult to achieve. Even if we do not have it implemented in the official WYMeditor code very soon I can send you my code to use.

Also, I am working on the multiple editors issue while implementing WYMeditor in the CMS I wrote - http://www.smartsitemanager.com. I will share my code with you when it is done. It will probably take me about another 5-7 days.
