WYSIWYG - On-Line HTML editor

by Keogge / August 1, 2005 3:27 PM PDT

Hello all,

I thought I would drop in and say hi and ask a question. I have built a website for a non-profit society and on this site are a couple pages that would need to be editted as the need occurs. I do not want to give them full access to the page as I tried this and it took hours to fix it. I want to be able to use Textarea approach without the text area framing. There is very little to no money here and I am weak when it comes to CGI, PHP, Javascript and such. So it needs to be free is possible as well as user friendly. I am trying one called FCKeditor and it looks good, but it appears to use editarea tags. Not to mention that I can not get it to work on my pages. Anyone have any ideas????

What exactly needs to be edited? Is it the code itself? Or is it like a news system that needs to be updated every so ofen?

It is more like a news page. All that is required to be updated is text. As things change in certain programs they want to be able to post those changes. Edit the existing old text and replace it with the new. I have tried a couple CGI/Javascript programs, but they have <textarea> tags that leave a window on the page being editted. This to me looks rather cheap and distasteful.
There was one I tried and it was called Edittag. It used tag that were not reconised by the browser and worked rather well, but the editor.js script would not load. I am not to sure what I was doing wrong, I tried everyhting I new to get it to work, but failed. What are your ideas, any would be greatfully accepted.

I could really use some help here....

I am stuck between a rock and a hard place. I have been looking at redoing the entire 24 pages of this site in Mombo CSM if I can not find a editor they can use without screwing up all my work. Someone out there must be able to give me a tip at 3?

In reply to: You can try

As my title says, I wasn't really able to get to a computer for the last few days. But if its just the news page contact me through email, I can help you out with a news script.
