Rich Text, Poor Text: WYSIWYG editors and other text entry options
Video not available
Most people use word processors to create documents, so Drupal's plain text approach to content creation can be hard to get used to. This session looks at ways your users can format content in Drupal without getting HTML grime under their fingernails. We will talk about rich-text editors, natural-language syntaxes such as Markdown, and the XML-RPC gateway.
The session will explore and compare alternatives to the plain-text boxes Drupal uses to create content. These alternatives fall into 3 groups:
- Rich text editors such as TinyMCE
- Natural-language syntaxes such as Markdown
- Desktop clients using the XML-RPC gateway.
By the end of the session, site administrators should have a good grasp of the different ways to make content creation in Drupal more user-friendly.
