Add htmlArea in html will be viewed in browser below 5.5


The htmlArea 2 & 3 editors have been discontinued.

We've made these forums available as a read-only reference and knowledge-base for people using or developing editors based on htmlArea 2 or 3.

Anyone who is interested in taking over version 2 or 3 is free to do so. All we ask is that you choose a new name that doesn't have "htmlarea" in it to avoid confusion with this site. We'll even give you a link in the directory to make it easier for people to find you. If you are developing or hosting an htmlArea based-editor under a new name, please submit it to our directory.

Add htmlArea in html will be viewed in browser below 5.5 Can't Post

Hi,
I just need a simple html editor in my web page and all my users are using IE 5.0, is that possible for me to disable some advanced functions in HTMLeditor that can only be available for IE 5.5 and above? if yes, where I can get the lists of the functions that I have to removed in the editor.js file or is that any other solution that I can seek for?
Thanks a lot for your attention.

I had many troubles with early IE5-Versions as well.

There are some Editors out there that are java or even flash based, and might be a better choice, even thoug HTMLarea is one of the most functional, especialy with all the adons available.

I use htmlarea, and I think its great, so please do not think I want to boicott interactivetools by posting this list... :-)

some free Browserbased wysiwyg HTML-Editors are
(of course there are many more, see
http://www.bris.ac.uk/is/projects/cms/ttw/ttw.html )

Websitescreation rich text editor
[WORKS with IE 4+!]
http://www.hotscripts.com/Detailed/20383.html
http://www.websitescreation.ca/

HTMLarea 2 / 3a ( this one ;-) ) [javascript, win.IE 5.5+/mozilla 1.3+]
great because many features and now works on Mac / Mozilla as well...

EWE
( http://www.openmymind.net ) [javascript, win.IE]
Similar to HTMLarea, nice right-klick menu, but bugs and no Mozilla-Support yet

Bitflux Editor (http://www.bitfluxeditor.org/) [javascript, Mozilla 1.x/Netscape]
Also js, but for earlier Mozilla-based browsers

Ekit (http://www.hexidec.com/ekit.php) [JAVA]
Pretty neat if you want to be relativly browser-independant.

HTMLtea http://htmltea.sourceforge.net/ [java]
Simple Java-Editor with right-klick menu. Not as complex as Ekit, but still nice!

Flash Editor
http://www.flashkit.com/movies/Utilities/Realtime-Mike_Dog-3935/index.php

http://www.macromedia.com/software/drk/productinfo/product_overview/volume2/flash_components.html#1
Well, since many people have flash installed... great project, wonder why no updates.



Alternative you could use a simple text-area with Pseudo-HTML Code (UBB Code for example), with Buttons that insert tags or simple HTML instructions at the side, such as the basic editor here or as used on many Forums.

Ciao!

Hi, why not simply upgrade the browsers? they're free.

Well, immagine you make a Content M. System for a bigger company and 200 employes should be able to update stuff on the site, but all 200 PCs use IE5 or IE4, and 170 employes dont even know how to turn on a printer...

If you need to drive 150 miles per hour you don't buy a compact car. You buy a car that runs at least 150 miles/hr. IE 5.0 doesn't run 150 miles/hr. HTMLArea is built in a .dll (MSHTML.dll first incorporated in IE 5.5)


Don't give up!!

Nice comparison :-)

I would recomend upgrading too, but like i said- in a big company or on a 486 it does not make much sense to upgrade, especialy if you run win95.

Hi Luis, All

Funny, does companies with 200 pc's still use that hackable aufull DOS BASED OS's called win98 ?

in our days using win98 is like leaving your company in the stone age with the earth collapsing under your feets every 15 min.

You can't get advanced things as long as you are 5 years behind...

Well, in the company i work in for a few more days, there arent 200 PCs, but all just some PI, now at least with some win2k, but before they where all with 98... Now they all have IE5.5, but there are some troubles with HTMLarea 3,...

I like Knoppix, you just insert the CD and got a Linux running :-)

Thanks... [In reply to] Can't Post

Hi Thanks all,

I didn't expect so many helpful replies. Wink

especially schorhr, all those links help a lot. hey guys, it's an interesting discussion here, you'll be surprised that the company I work in are with many more PCs than 200. At least in my department has PCs more than that, and upgrading the IE version is not my call.Unsure

At last, still thanks a lot.

Re: [narumi] Thanks... [In reply to] Can't Post

Yep, i thought something like this is the case.

You should use one of the java or IE4 Editors and they can choose wich one to use, and you should give them instructions on upgrading ;)
