Javascript WYSIWYG editors

Posted on: 8 September, 2011

Having for a while favoured Xinha as my javascript WYSIWYG editor of choice I've now moved back to favouring TinyMCE.

This was prompted by the fact that Xihna does not seem to have much activity, its' last update was May 2010.  I had found Xinha to be a little more configurable than TinyMCE, but I think this may have been down to more user friendly documentation, and now find that in fact not only I can do all I did with Xinha, but can extend TinyMCE to do much more.

One thing which is missing from the standard free installation if TinyMCE is an image manager, and although there are a number of possible choices for plugins (Archiv , and  Tinymce Ajax File Manager for instance), they did not quite fit what I wanted, so I have written my own.

This has extended the functionality of the CMS system which Vectis WebDesign offers to our clients.
