InnovaStudio WYSIWYG Editor
Anyone using this?

Is anyone using InnovaStudio WYSIWYG Editor? Is it easy to install. etc. Opinions?

I have used it for two web sites. One web site allowed restaurants to create their own coupons, the other web site I coded a simple CMS application saving the info into an MS SQL database. This might be the answer for my other posting actually.

I am considering it as a solution on clients websites where they want access to make basic changes to some pages or parts of pages. Would it do a job on this?

Open Source alternative:

A little OT, is that a branding nightmare or what? Those three letters (even though they are his initials) are something I personally would not have recommended. It's one letter short of being vulgar. But, the letter doesn't need to be there in this instance. The human mind fills it in automatically.

Depending on their industry, it might be someones job description:

Post Processing Editor
Continuity Editor
Fight Scene Editor

I don't want to take this off topic because it's me who is looking for the info ;o) but one of the most famous branding exercises in the UK in recent years was from a clothing company called French Connection.

They rebranded themselves (quite legitimately) as FCUK and created a range of clothing with all sorts of FCUK slogans. For example "I don't give a FCUK", etc. Very clever.

This thread got FCUKing derailed! Hope the fckmods don't mind...

I tried to integrate this product into a website and eventually gave up and went back to a plain textarea.

As of the last time I checked it's not compatible with Safari. I didn't think that would be a problem at the time due to nobody using Safari on my sites until my main site admin bought a Mac and I saw how truly incompatible it was.

It's barely compatible with Gecko-based browsers. The biggest problem was the caret was often invisible even though if you started typing it worked fine. Still no caret though. Tech support told me they were aware of the problem but couldn't fix it.

I got the distinct impression after several explanations like that that they're using a third-party editor with their own code as a wrapper. There were lots of niggling little problems all of which combined made me decide not to use the product even though I'd already paid for it.

I also got the feeling this was a product that should be labeled, Best Used With IE6+.

Yes cross browser support and operating systems can be a problem with these tools. I have used FCKeditor in the past and it didn't work on a Mac.

I have emailed InnovaStudio to ask them about this. It may be that they have fixed these issues. I will report back.

Maybe we should ask w3c to make one so it fckvalidates..

There`s also SPAW, which imo is nicer than FCKEditor.



 2:44 pm on Jul 19, 2007 (gmt 0)

Ha, Ha! Even the mods are fcktired...

Ha, Ha! Even the mods are fcktired...

And this is probably the intended reaction by the creator of the program. ;)

Not too many people using InnovaStudio eh?

I think the definition is Viral Content Marketing.

I am getting good at it...had a lot of practice at The Zoo.

I got a reply to my enquiry. It supports IE, Firefox, Mozilla and Netscape. Safari and IE for MAC are not supported.
