YUI Rich Text Editor v1.4

By Richard Benson
Posted June 2, 2008, in Editing.


YUI has become my new favourite Rich Text Editor and I have been implementing it left right and centre. It's extensability, features and ease of use are unparralled. It made sense for all these features to be available to me in MovableType so why not package it up into a plugin too?

This plugin adds a new Rich Text Editor in the form of the Yahoo User Interface Rich Text Editor.

Options include stretching the editor to fit the content automatically and disbaling use of the MT assets selection tools in favour of a simpler URL based image chooser.

Based heavily on the FCKEditor plugin, and will be extended and updated as and when there is some documentation for this functionality.


Movable Type versions: 4.3

I have the editor working, as well as the selector. Thanks for the great, functional plugins!

What I can’t find - for the LIFE OF ME, I’ve been searching high and low - is how to enable the Blockquote button in the editor! This has got to be stupidly simple, and yet I can’t seem to find this information anywhere.

As a stop gap until I can respond in more detail, look at this example for the full default toolbar config:

But i can’t find the example of how you can use that to configure the toolbar to your needs! Sorry!

Give me a few days if you can’t work it out from there.
