  • Can someone help me getting the tinymce 2.0.3 WYSIWYG editor to work with my WordPress 2.0.1 installation? I downloaded it from here and put all of the plugins into the wp-includes > js >tinymce > plugins directory on the server. When i went to the write page, it all looked the same. All I see is that tag bar, no WYSIWYG editor. What did I do wrong? I have since removed all the tinymce stuff I uploaded and restored everything to the default installation.

  • 1) Reupload the TinyMCE 2.0.3 stuff to the folder you used above.
    2) Change the tiny_mce_gzip.php file in the scripts folder to include just:
    // blah stuff here

    You’ll need to figure out what to replace blah with, but you can just cut and paste for the most part from the sample pages at MoxieCode.

    Unfortunately, the JS version of TinyMCE is significantly slower than the GZIP’ed version, so be prepared for longer loading times.

    You won’t be able to use the tiny_mce_gzip.php file provided in WordPress b/c TinyMCE 2.0.3 requires a newer tiny_mce_gzip.php file, which works a different way, largely b/c 2.0.3 is structurally different from 2.0-2.0.2 and should really be called 2.1 or something.

    If you download the EditorMonkey plugin, you can extract some of the plugins to use with TinyMCE 2.0.3. This will be necessary for some plugins like the WordPress, as the plugin architecture changed. You’ll have to wait until next week though, when a version of EM support 2.0.3 is released with the new TinyMCE plugins.


    can you translate your help above into more layman language? i got the .php from tinyMCE no problem. got it uploaded to the js folder on my site. but when you say, “You’ll need to figure out what to replace blah with,” can you be more specific? i went to the moxie code site, and found no examples of code.

    one other thing: i downloaded the .zip from the tinyMCE site, and i only got one file. you mention uploading “stuff” from the .zip. should there be more than one file? what am i missing here?
