Would you like me to add your plugins to our CVS repository? I would love to. :)

So many choices! I hate to ask this but which one is the best and why or is it just personal preference?

My main reason for asking is I use Coppermine and loved the plugin that allowed you to easily add thumb images from coppermine but I don't think it works with htmlarea or tinymce. Any luck that plugin would work with either of the two new ones or could be made to work with tinymce?

well xinha loads the fastest cause it uses css to switch between images. but its experimental. Xinha has stuff that no other have like htmltidy

this review might help.

never used coppermine though.
plus it would be nice of xinha and fckeditor could use s9y insert image thingy, just like htmlarea does

OK also got iBrowser and iManager to work under Xinha
dunno if anyone is interested in it though.
However i can't seem to enable the build in ImageManager in Xinha :?

I'll enable iManager and ibrowser in FCKeditor if any one wants it.

garvin FCKeditor is GPL, can't we bundle it as a complete download through spartacus. that way we can do our own custom version, with cool plugins :)

BTW, none of the 4 WYSIWYG editors easily supports plugins like the "emoticate" or "coppermine selector". It is very hard to inject foreign content into the textarea, I have not yet found a solution to use the API for inserting this, as it's much work...

My main problem is that if I try to reference the WYSIWYG textarea via some getElementById, it will always fail, and I can't append content to the area.

We cannot bundle GPL programs, only LGPL software for our BSD license. Only additional plugins can be licensed as you wish.

ok, so fckeditor as a plugin can be included with all its files so users don't have to manually download it. right?

Yes, that's right. However I suggest to NOT do that because those are many, many, many files to download via Spartacus which would suck a lot. Also in terms of updating and maintaining the fckedit in the plugin would be hard.

Instead I'd like the user to take care of that for himself...it's one more package to download, but then easier to maintain for both the user and us.

You cannot enable WYSIWYG in comments, because HTML is filtered for comments. So even if you could get it to run (via the frontend_comment event hook), it wouldn't help anything because the HTML would be stripped when saving. :)

So none of these work unless you have the latest nightly build of S9?
