Free Rich Text Editor – Word-like WYSIWYG Editor

Posted · Category: CC License, Forms

FreeRichTextEditor is an extremely easy to use free javascript based HTML WYSIWYG editor for your website, it can easily be implemented into any existing content management system or other web application with no knowledge required in programming or javascript. Only 3 lines of code required to set up the editor. It also now outputs as XHTML compliant code.

FreeRichTextEditor’s interface looks like Microsoft Office Word, it is easy to use without any help. You are free to use this editor as you wish as long as all copyright notices remain intact. However, there is a number of issues have arisen about the kind of characters used when using special characters. This is done by some 3rd party code embedded within the editor.

    Looks nice :) There are so many now. Which one is the best?

    Nice, but I don’t like it! It dosn’t have any kind of image or file uploader.
    FCKeditor is much better solution!

    The demo that they have set up, definitely is not outputting XHTML / Accessible content. It uses instead of :S

    Oooopss… I meant: {i} tag instead of {em} tag

    I would recommend TinyMCE and FCKEditor~ ;)

  • Thanks but no thanks. First of all, I don’t like an interface that’s a clone of the MS Word, and second, producing “strong type” instead of “strong type” is not semantic XHTML but a big step backwords.

  • Looks like code got interpreted. In my comment I tried to write that instead of <strong> the editor uses <span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-weight: bold;">, as an example of bad code.

    Now I know how to use it. Can’t wait to read your other posts.
