Replace original html area Can't Post

Great choice of html areas ... but how would I go about changing from the original built into AM1.38 to, say, Text Area Rich, one of the those advertised on the site?Crazy

I guess this is just a listing. If you plan to buy or download another product, you should contact the vendors of those editors. They can help you implement their editor.

I suspect that when I choose my ideal html area I will still need to know how and where to plug it into Article Manager?

Okey, I agree. I guess interactivetools can tell you where to plug in into. A good html area converts a textarea without bugging the user. They just convert the textarea, given a special attribute like; class="some_name@, after including the javascript files.

The Article editor template is here:

/templates/interface/art_menus.html

and the templatecells in that file that insert wysiwyg editors all have "wysiwyg" in their name. They are:

summary_wysiwyg
content_wysiwyg
spare_wysiwyg
wysiwygJS (which looks like it has the javascript for spare wysiwyg fields).

You'd need to replace the textareas (and htmlarea javascript) in those templatecells with whatever the particular editor you want to use requires.

Hope that helps!

Thanks Dave, I'll give it a bash and see what happens. I am assuming that since most of the editors offer to insert an image that I would have had to upload all images before hand then refer to them by the placeholder or the full path.

I think so, give it a try and let us know if you have any success (maybe over at the itools forums).

We're still adding all the editors we can find, but we want to find a good, fast cross-browser one to use in all our products .

Yes, there is. Search for "htmlarea" and "wysiwyg" in:
_interface.html
_page_menus.html

_page_menus.html has two templatecells called wysiwyg and wysiwygJS.

Having no luck ...

Have posted a detailed message on the Page Publisher forum at interactivetools.com, but no info forthcoming from there as yet ... Frown

Yea, the support staff aren't all that familiar with javascript or the various wysiwyg editors out there so they probably won't be able to help you much.

We are trying out several editors in the directory right now and trying to find a cross-browser one that's a good fit for our products right now, though.
