  • anyone could help me please????thanks

    What permission? What’s the problem?

    I’m using it and it clicks just right after I installed it. Probably you can give more details about your problem?

    Read why your Quicktags are gone.

    Darn it, I was hoping mudbomb’s WYSIWYG replaced the WP WYSIWYG. I need my quicktags.

    Actually, you can get around from this problem (although it’s a little bit tricky but worth it if you are using alot of image-driven post).

    1. Activate the plugin and start writing whatever you wanted to write with mudbomb’s WYSIWYG editor on.
    2. After you finished writing and formatting your entry, simply deactivate the plugin and don’t forget to save it as a draft
    3. Go to the entry that has been saved as a draft early on and put the <!–more–> tag where-ever you want on the entry, and publish it.

    Note:this only works when you edit it on Firefox, somehow IE got a problem with it.

    Hope this helps

    Personally, I wanted to use mudbomb’s excellent WYSIWYG to make things *easier* for my authors, so having to post then edit, or even mess about turning quicktags on and off just doesn’t cut it.

    I think there’s something on mudbomb’s site about how to turn WYSIWYG editor on and off in easy method. Just check it.

    I have a problem loading images. FWIW, I use GoDaddy and am among the 1% who, in wp-config, must cannot define ‘DB_HOST’ as ‘localhost’. (In my case, I must define as ‘mysql53.secureserver.net’) Not sure if this is relevant…

    In my case, my blog is at ‘www.featuringdave.com/logicalmeme’ and my images folder is at ‘www.featuringdave.com/images’

    Regarding setups in iconfig.php, I tried Kewinn’s solution in the Apr. 5, 2005 @ 11:18 am comment at http://mudbomb.com/archives/2005/02/02/wysiwyg-plugin-for-wordpress/ (that site appears to be taking no more comments), but it didn’t work. In my case, I’ve tried:

    1. Find this line in Wysi-Wordpress/plugins/ibrowser/iconfig.php

    $tinyMCE_base_url = "$blogbase/";

    And change it to this:

    $tinyMCE_base_url = "http://www.featuringdave.com/";

    2. Set the imagedirectory to images/, like so:

    $imagedirectory = "images/";

    I’ve tried this and different combinations of what’s been discussed at Mudbomb’s site but can’t get the images directory to load when using the WYSIWYG plugin.

    Any ideas?

    I think you can move your images folder under the same folder where you installed WP and it will solve the problem
