Alternative editor June 10, 2007 @ 3:09pm
Any chance of providing a way to use alternative page editors?

I want to use something like textile, a text based markup described here: http://textism.com/ instead of a WYSIWYG editor.

This is because I operate a site for a blind user and would like to enable the option for him to edit it himself.

Thanks

Roger,

Switching out the editor isn't overly complicated on its own, but when you start using a different markup system that becomes quite a project since you have to do not only the front end where they can be edited, but then also the backend where they are processed into the pages.

You might also want to suggest using our older style tags that we used to use before adding the page editor. They're identical to the ones you can use here in the forum. They have been left in the pages system for compatibility, and won't be removed in the foreseeable future. They give you bold/italic/underline, fonts, colours, images, links, and basic formatting like left/center/right.

Thank,

Sounds like this may work.
Are the codes listed somewhere?

What I may do is find a way to add an "edit me" link to pages, similar to the print / email icons, for a specific user level.

As for an edit link displayed when a user level is viewing the page, that's something we can certainly look into for the next version.

Thanks for the info.

For your information, have a look at http://idly.org/textilephp/doc/index.html

Adding textile markup looks easy enough to implement, as the code to process the markup exists.
The back end always shows the original typed text and the following code can be used to format the output.

Code

include_once("Textile.php");
$text = text_of_page_to_display;
$textile = new Textile;
$html = $textile->process($text);
print $html;


The edit page option should be easy enough to add alongside the existing print/email page links. I may try coding it myself once version 2.5 is released (and provide you the code).
