Subject [jira] Commented: (JSPWIKI-450) Built-in WYSIWYG editor
Date Wed, 23 Dec 2009 09:39:29 GMT


Luca Gilardoni commented on JSPWIKI-450:

I have been working quite a bit with FCK JSPWiki. Handling is fine and I imagine TinyMCE could
be used as well.
However, users of  WYSIWYG  are also likely to do cut&paste from Word or Html or in general
other rich content providers. Handling is quite reasonable in my experience wit both FCK and
TiniMCE, but problems comes when the html text (which is the internal representation of both)
is handled and converted to JSPWiki markup. Current issues i am aware:
1) a lot of unuseful markup is included (e.g. formatting around empy texts/para)
2) tables are always converted to wiki "|" syntax. However this work well with very simple
tables, but for complex ones (e.g. merged cells, row, cols) it mangles everything. 

Point 1 is annoying but harmless (and possibly due to initial conversions within the editor),
but 2 makes everything unusable. I suspect table conversion should definitly be fixed.

nice FCK editor integration, unfortunately licensing reasons forbid us from distributing it
with JSPWiki.

FCK is only distributed in binary form (as a zip file which can be installed from JSPWiki?)
or that the FCK authors can be talked into re-releasing it under Apache license...
