htmlArea replacment recommendations? Can't Post

Since htmlArea has been discontinued, what WYSIWYG editor would you developers recommend as a good quick replacment?

(Yes I know there are rating on WYSIWYG editors on this site, I wan't their opinion).

Why don't try the editors yourself? It won't cost you much time... You can see very quickly which editor supports your user need.
Secondly, are you looking for a opensource editor or a commercial one?

There are 67 editors in the "database"... I didn't find a way to order by rating? Also, I would like to hear their recommendation, from a "developers" point of view perhaps?

Im looking for a free (GPL/LGPL?) Open Source editor that atleast has some development going on.

fck looks good yes,
but if you want a QUICK replacement take a look at xinha:
http://www.htmlarea.com/directory/Detailed/123.html

its based on htmlarea so basically you only have to replace htmlarea with xinha :D

Mihai Bazon (a.k.a. Mishoo) is continuing what was known as HTMLarea:

http://www.dynarch.com/projects/htmlarea/

I quote their site:


Quote
Our position on this is that the editor will keep going; we are actually making quite some progress in its development, but only in house at this time. We are still planning to release version 3.0, quite possibly under a different name (so it might actually be a 1.0) but still free, at least for the core editor--some plugins might be released under a commercial license. We can't provide explicit deadlines, so please bear with us.



for the moderators: I am only linking this directly since you are not allowing any posts in the directory under the name of HTMLarea.

Ive tested FCKEditor, had huge problems getting it to work as I wanted.

What about this tinymce?
http://www.htmlarea.com/directory/Detailed/79.html

Seems to be rather new, but very very active.

Have you managed to get the view source feature? Looks broken in the latest build.

I don't use that feature myself, but it seems fine on their example page.

Well I have Firefox 1.0.2 and it's functioning fine for me. Try disabling any extensions you have, I heard someone getting weird problems with some extensions.

Hey Larssson...

How did you integrate TinyMCE to the interface template??? I have been trying but it just doesn't work. I think TinyMCE looks good in their example pages and I really need to get it up soon.

Can you post which areas/files you had to modify and what you replaced them with? I would really appreciate it...

Re: [pinoyn] htmlArea replacment recommendations? [In reply to] Can't Post

We have our own CMS, so the integration for us was quite smooth, we removed HTMLArea and just adjusted the pages to simple form pages then applied TinyMCE.

Took a while to figure out the tinyMCE.triggerSave() function if you submit the form with Javascript, but they patched that in last version I believe.

If you have any problems, check their forums, quite easy to get help, we are even using their imagemanager now
