I've decided to write this because this is by far the easiest integration of a WYSIWG editor with Geeklog. Hopefully you'll find it usefull.
1. First of all go to TinyMCE website and grab a copy of the editor in their Download section.

2. Unpack the archive into your public_html directory. You should have a directory called tinymce created.

3. In a header.thtml file of your theme, after title tag paste this piece of code

PHP Formatted Code
<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript" src="{site_url}/tinymce/jscripts/tiny_mce/tiny_mce.js"></script>











 


4. If you want this feature available for everyone, read on, if TinyMCE is for Story Admins only go to point 5.
You keep reading this meaning you want this for everyone
Do the following:
- copy the submitstory.thtml into submitstory_advanced.thtml
- edit the submitstory_advanced.thtml file and add this piece of code at the begining of the file
PHP Formatted Code
<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
        // Notice: The simple theme does not use all options some of them are limited to the advanced theme
        tinyMCE.init({
                mode : "textareas",
                theme : "simple"
        });
</script>












 

- save it

5. To enable TinyMCE for Story Admins do the following:
- copy the storyeditor.thtml into storyeditor_advanced.thtml
- edit storyeditor_advanced.thtml and add the following piece of code at the begining of the file
PHP Formatted Code
<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
        // Notice: The simple theme does not use all options some of them are limited to the advanced theme
        tinyMCE.init({
                mode : "textareas",
                theme : "advanced"
        });
</script>












 

- save it
6. Now edit your config.php
go to
PHP Formatted Code
$_CONF['advanced_editor'] = false;











 

and set it to true.
Go to
PHP Formatted Code
$_CONF['postmode']      = 'plaintext';  // can be 'plaintext' or 'html'










 
and set it to html
Save it

7. Go edit your lib-common.php
go to
PHP Formatted Code
function COM_refresh( $url )
{
    return "<html><head><meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0; URL=$url"></head></html>n";
}







 

and change to this
PHP Formatted Code

function COM_refresh( $url )
{
header ("Location: " . str_replace ( '&amp;', '&', $url) );
return "<html><head><meta http-equiv=\"refresh\" content=\"0; URL=$url\"></head></html>n";
}










 


This solves the issue described in this thread

Final notes:
You will have to update the $_CONF['user_html'] and $_CONF['admin_html'], but it's up to you what you want to make available. For sure you will have to add strong tag to $_CONF['user_html'] because regular bold seems to be malfunctioning (this has been discussed here) . This editor has a lot more to offer and once you have it running do not hesitate and experiment

Good luck
--EDIT--
I updated the bit that goes to lib-common.php COM_refresh. Thanks to heretic

Hi, very well put together HOW-TO,

I tried it out, but when i did a page refreshed, i realized that i was not able to get into my website....

Somehow i remembered i had this problem before, and noted that it was because of sound erronous code in the lib-common.php

So i started looking into your code, step by step...after a while i realized that it's supposed to be this:

PHP Formatted Code

function COM_refresh( $url )
{
header ("Location: " . str_replace ( '&', '&', $url) );
    return "<html><head><meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0; URL=$url"></head></html>n";
}

 


instead of what u had posted....

bascailly what i realized was that the "" was missing between "refresh" "content" etc...

but do hope, i was correct. cause once i made those changes, it worked flawlessy..

regards
sidi


PS NOTE...
Now, Now, while previewing my message, i realized exactly what the problem is......
In the code provided by the original poster, the "backslash" in the lib-common.php is missing...

I tried to post the correct code, thinking it was a typo, but while previewing before posting, i realized that all "backslashes" are automatically removed (filterd out by the forum software)..

So, if u are going to implement this, please double check your coding in the lib-common.php....after doing a copy and paste from the posters code

Check your old code, and look for those missing backslashes

How difficult would this be to integrate into the forums of a geeklog site?

By the way, thanks for the instructions. I have it working like a charm on my own site. If anyone wants to see what it looks like use the link above. I altered some of the code for the row and colum size to make it fit properly.

Hi Yankidank

Two things, do u care to share the code that u used to adjust the settings of tinymce, i was trying to get it adjusted myself, my my small knowled of coding, didn't reach to far..

thanks in advance

next, according to the site of TinyMce, it's O/S, Platform independant, so i guess, it should be easy to get it work in the forum software,
I don't know which forum software u are using, but i did a fast search on GOOGLLLLLLEEE,
with TinyMCE and PHPBBB, and found lots of of hits

Hi
Interesting, I don't know if this should be the case but found the tiny_mce code in the header slowed down my site when using a full implementation. Putting the code normally put in the header, directly at top of storyeditor_advanced.thtml gave faster overall site performance while giving full editor access to admin.

PHP Formatted Code
<!-- tinyMCE -->
<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript" src="../../tiny_mce/tiny_mce.js"></script>
<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
        tinyMCE.init({
                mode : "specific_textareas",
        theme : "advanced",
                plugins : "table,advhr,advimage,paste,contextmenu,ibrowser,imanager,fullscreen,advlink,emotions,insertdatetime,preview,flash,searchreplace,print",
                theme_advanced_buttons1_add_before : "fontselect,fontsizeselect",
                theme_advanced_buttons1_add : "",
                theme_advanced_buttons2_add : "ibrowser,separator,insertdate,inserttime,preview,separator",
                theme_advanced_buttons2_add_before: "cut,copy,paste,separator,search,replace,separator",
                theme_advanced_buttons3_add_before : "fullscreen,imanager,tablecontrols,separator,pastetext,pasteword",
                theme_advanced_buttons3_add : "emotions,flash,advhr,separator,print,forecolor,backcolor",
                theme_advanced_toolbar_location : "top",
                theme_advanced_toolbar_align : "left",
                theme_advanced_path_location : "bottom",
        plaintext_create_paragraphs : "false",
                content_css : "example_full.css",
            plugin_insertdate_dateFormat : "%d-%m-%y",
            plugin_insertdate_timeFormat : "%H:%M:%S",
                extended_valid_elements : "a[name|href|target|title|onclick],img[class|src|border=0|alt|title|hspace|vspace|width|height|align|onmouseover|onmouseout|name],hr[class|width|size|noshade],font[face|size|color|style],span[class|align|style]",
                external_link_list_url : "example_link_list.js",
                external_image_list_url : "example_image_list.js",
                flash_external_list_url : "example_flash_list.js"
//              file_browser_callback : "fileBrowserCallBack"
        });

//      function fileBrowserCallBack(field_name, url, type) {
                // This is where you insert your custom filebrowser logic
//              alert("Filebrowser callback: " + field_name + "," + url + "," + type);
//      }
</script>
<!-- /tinyMCE -->
 


BTW - The Geeklog cvs has a very nice editor implementation using fckeditor - I haven't tested it for overall site speed on a shared hosting server but will be nice if the speed problems I found with tiny_mce are overcome

In response to SidiMustafa:

Open up the storyeditor_advanced.thtml and submitstory_advanced.thtml and edit the line that looks like:

PHP Formatted Code
<td><textarea name="introtext" cols="75" rows="20" wrap="virtual">{story_bodytext}</textarea></td>
 


That's not the original code, that's what I changed it to so that it would fit my site better. Just change the cold and rows numbers until it fits. You will want to do this with 2 lines in the storyeditor_advanced.thtml file. Once for story_introtext and once for story_body text just below it. submitstory_advanced.thtml only has one area to change.

Does the Admin has an image upload facility? And cropping/resizing?

**EDIT/UPDATE**

from TinyMCE site:
We just released updated versions of MCFileManager and MCImageManager, a lot of backend changed on these versions, fixes and extra options added. We included language support for them as well, currently only Swedish and English.

The iBrowser plugin is very well featured third party plugin suited to several editors incl tiny_MCE . It allows upload and manipulation. The author also has a file manager plugin available from the same site.

Is it possible to integrate this into the forum plugin? I'm not sure what I would lose or gain by doing this.

Hello friends,
thanks for this topic, I just installed TiniMCE and it works ok!

I have only a problem: BOLD letters don't are bold, they become plain test.. I am unable to make bold words.... I see the words in bold when I'm in the editor window, but when I read the home page of my site all letters return in plain format. Links and other features works ok.

Any suggestion for my problem?
Thanks!

OK I solved the "bold" question but I have another problem: "mailto:" links don't works, example:

Link: mailtoxx@xxx.com
Converted to: http://www.mysite.com/xxx@xxx.com

TinyMCE converts mailto: in my site address.

Can someone help me?

You have to add it to the list of allowed protocols in config.php:
PHP Formatted Code
// list of protocols that are allowed in links                                
$_CONF['allowed_protocols'] = array ('http', 'https', 'ftp');
 

But then again, who really uses mailto: any more? Any email address you enter there will only attract spam ...

bye, Dirk
