Alternate HTML editor

posted on 3:52 PM, September 16, 2010
Version 3.7.1 includes the alternate HTML editor, TinyMCE, which has been extended significantly for use with ExSite. New ExSite-only features in TinyMCE include:
  • Inline element selector
  • Font and CSS style selectors configurable from your ExSite config files
  • ExSite hyperlink tools
  • ExSite image/document tools
  • ExSite plug-in tools
  • embed tool
  • three modes: standard, advanced (all functions enabled), and basic (suitable for non-admin users)
TinyMCE is an experimental feature in this release, and is not enabled by default. To enable it on your website, take the following steps:
  1. ensure that the new CGI program dlg.cgi is present in your CGI-BIN directory
  2. add the configuration setting form.editor = tinymce to your exsite.conf file
Otherwise the standard ExSite HTML editor will be used.
