Has anyone integrated a better content editor into ATutor? (e.g., www.kevinroth.com/rte/demo.htm)

Unfortunately, I had not found it when I posted this message. The html editor does not appear on the initial page when creating a course - when providing the basic description. I did find it later - after having adapted the screen in question to use a similar html editor.

Sorry.

But it might be a good idea to make it availabe everywhere one must use a text box to enter paragraph lenght info.

No problem. If it turns out to be a better editor we might use it.

The visual editor will be available on all html enabled textareas eventually, using whichever editor we end up with.

Hi,

Sorry to post it again at www.atutor.ca/view/12/3942/1.html

So! Why change to this one...

MamboCMS (>100.000 downloads of last version of a gran total of >2.000.000) changed from HTMLArea to TinyMCE as their default WYSIWYG Editor and this should mean something, don't you think? wink

And MamboCMS has add-ons to HTMLArea (and several forks), FCKEditor, RTE and TinyMCE.

Take a look at what you can do with TinyMCE at tinymce.moxiecode.com

Best and thanks,

Lopo

We had considered tinymce at the time the visual editor was added to ATutor, and it was less functional at the time. It seems to be better now. If someone were to integrate TinyMCE, and share their code, we might consider using it.

We have too many other things on the go right now to spend time replacing the visual editor.
