I really liked tinymce, simple to use, lightweight and easy to implement
but I couldn't get an image upload to work with it.

I ended up installing and trying about 6 others until I finally gave up
and went with fckEditor which I hate.

It's a reasonable user interface for users but it's not simple to
implement.
It's bloated, heavy, and OTT IMO but it's the only one I could get
working with image uploading. There is a new version called ckeditor
which is in beta test right now which proclaims to be w2c compliant and
claims to produce w3c compliant markup. I'll be playing with that when I
get some time to spare.

I used tinymce.
Will move onto ckeditor in next release.
Thanks a lot. :slight_smile:

what with the image upload couldn't you get working? I hacked out a
simple tinyMCE inline image uploader using jquery and jquery.form a
little while back; its nowhere close to what i'd call quality code,
but i suppose if i uploaded it somewhere it might help you find where
you went wrong?

i'm almost irrationally afraid of FCK, so

Hi,

You can use fckeditor. It’s very flexible…i used a lot.

I use TinyMCE, and like it very much.

tinymce 3.2.5 is pretty flexible !!
