    Especially when the 'product' is this lame.
    • Agreed.

      While it's true that some of these are not good... through the comments I've come to know of many great softwares and real user experiences which have helped me to find much better. So while it's true, I take the "Slashvertisements" with a shaker of salt, I do like seeing the insightful comments and real people who actually make it worthwhile.

      So... thank you slashdot readers! :)

    I've been using TinyMCE [] for about a year now and haven't found anything better. For anyone looking to integrate a WYSIWYG editor in to their site, it is the route I recommend; Certainly over this product.

      They, too, insist on using popup windows in some of their plugins. This is simply not acceptable.
    • That it uses LGPL is more favorable for TinyMCE, but from a functionality standpoint what do you find better about it? I'm looking at implementing one of them for commercial use (as a hosted service) and would appreciate your thoughts on it.

      Another nice editor is FCKeditor []. At least for me it worked better than all the rest that I had to test and it was all of it available under the LGPL. If I remember properly, some parts (plugins) for TinyMCE were only under a commercial license.

    Either this company is confused, or I have lost the ability to read English. paw/en_spaw_purchase []

    "Unlimited" to "Enterprise" license
    EUR 100,-
    For unlimited use in projects and applications you own or develop. Includes all updates to versions 2.x and downgrade right to version 1.x.

    "Single server/application" to "Enterprise" license
    EUR 175,-
    For unlimited use in projects and applications you own or develop. Includes all updates to versions 2.x and downgrade right to version 1.x. Applicable for upgrades from single server/application license for SPAW Editor 1.x and 2.x

    Unless I'm reading that wrong, you can buy the full 'unlimited' version for 100 euros. Or you can upgrade from the single server version to the unlimited version for 175 euros.

    WTF? Hard to trust a company that can't even price their own products.
    • The first price is upgrading from "unlimited" to "enterprise" and costs 100 euros. The second price is upgrading from "single server" to "enterprise" and costs 175 euros.

      That said... +4, really? I can understand how someone can misread the pricing structure since it's a little confusing. But how can at least two people mod this up when simply reading the post they're moderating would show them he just misread the stuff he quoted? You don't even have to follow any links, the information's all there.

      Slashdot is freaking out again and I can't reply to the reply.

      You are correct, I was looking at the upgrade pricing instead of the regular pricing.

      The fact that there is no 'unlimited' version is still odd. I suppose it must only have existed in 1.x...
  • Exactly what does this output? I can't believe that it outputs well formed HTML, of a modern version, with CSS formatting, and all that happy stuff. Well, I guess I COULD believe it, but i'm not going to until someone confirms otherwise.
  • Because I'd be very interested to know.
  • Its about time PHP had a decent editor. Has anyone tried this thing?
