Is the WYSIWYG editor working for wiki pages in the latest verion of TikiWiki?

What is the easiest and most reliable way of getting a WYSIWYG wiki page editor in tiki?

I've heard that FCKeditor is popular and easy to install. See WysiwygEasyWay for details.

HTH,

I've been using FCK in my tiki site for awhile now, but I have a problem in Wiki pages. Whenever a blank space is explicitly placed (ie. inside an empty td element for instance) the &nbsp gets inserted. When the wiki page renders and the code is parsed, It seems to have a problem with this notation, and places a '?' anywhere the &nbsp occurs, filling my page with '?'s. Does anyone else have this problem and can anyone suggest a fix.

I've tried using the php replace function to convert the &nbsp, but to no avail. Otherwise FCK is fantastic.

BTW I've also tried the USEBRONCARRIAGERETURN = yes but that only stops some of the occurences and only works on IE.

Thanks.

I would try to find the code part where &nbsp is located and change it to (without hte spaces) & nbsp ;

Sorry my mistake... I forgot to type the ';' in my posts. The fact is the editor is correctly inserting &nbsp ; (without the space) but the wiki parser seems to trip on it and throw in a '?' instead of just a blank space. This has been a problem for me for a long time, and has prevented me from using Wiki for priveleged clients.

I'm amazed and frustrated that no one else seems to be having this problem

I have visited the link above, Wysiwyg The Easy Way, and note that I to ideed use quicktags myself. But other people who edit wikis would like to use "wysiwyg. Now it says on this page
i have talked to real developers of the tiki community and wysiwyg feature(the real thing) is soon commin our way. so, as of now, it wont hurt to have this as a supplementary editor.. This was written in Thursday 21 April, 2005, but no update to the page of how to remove, the problem whereby,..... this feature is that, if u ever edit a page using a normal editor, and later re-edit a page using the wysiwyg, your original wiki layout will be lost. such things are like paragraphs mashed together.......

Sure it would not be too difficult to add a something that would add back in a as to stop the paragraph pages being mashed together. Is there no update since 2005 for this ????

Fckeditor works fine. But it works on an html syntax. Some people like moinmoin customized fckeditor to work on wiki syntax. It is very hard to do - because people tend to copy paste html from whereever... and the arser is hard to tune.
In the tiki community we do not like html because it is an open door for security. - so .... the things are not going fast

Not only is html an open door for security, it messes up you css style sheets as well, if people try jiggery pokering around too much. Its not really the wiki way anyway. No problems. Sorry to ask, I don't mean to say, "when is it comming ect. ect. redface. Sorry.

I didn't realise, it was a compleate re-write, which was needed.

Again sorry.
