HTML WYSIWYG Editor

Recommended Posts

Okay I have sat here and answered 20+ posts which gives me another lazy person's post bonus :P

 

Is there a WYSIWYG editor around that you can add fonts to? I need to add something like 20 fonts to an editor and all the ones I have found don't let you add any :(

 

This is driving me nuts. :blink:

Kym,

Your WYSIWYG editor should pick up the new fonts you install. to install new fonts on windows just add the font files to the fonts folder...

Hi

 

I mean the editor for product descritions etc. in Admin.

 

I have the standard one here. It comes with only has a set of about 8 fonts. There does not seem to be a way to add extra fonts to it.

Remember that if the person viewing your site does not have the font you specified it will default to the system font. Thats why it's better sticking to a common font family

 

in css this would be

 

font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;

 

it would try each one in turn till it found one it could work with.

 

If you have 'My Snazzy Font', unless your customers have it on their system they wont see your font, pointless.

 

Stick to the basic fonts.

 

But if you are determined to go down this route

This is for a specific site feature customizing stationery and providing online softproofs so it requires as many fonts as the graphic designer uses in her work all of which are all pretty much standard for most PC font libraries.

 

If anyone actually knows of an editor that can have fonts added I would be very grateful to know.

 

We have tried lots of options including writing this in flash but tecfhnology is beating us at all turns.

I'm sure the one in the link I posted allows you to add fonts

DreamWeaver is really good,

But if you add any fonts and the End user dose not have it it wont make you any good


at the end of the day the code will be good

They are looking for an HTML WYSIWYG editor (i.e. one that appears in a browser window for on-line editing)

Thanks I have them investigating the fckeditor now. I hope it does the trick. I am coming to hate the very word "editor" at present.

As others have said, it won't matter at all what font the person uses in the editer. If the customer viewing the page does not have the font installed on their computer they will not see it. fdkediter is pretty much the same thing (and a pain in the butt to install) as the wysiwyg editers offered in the contributions area.

 

I would suggest using images, if they want to show off the different styles they offer.
