Creating an input toolbar in admin cms

  • # February 19, 2013 at 3:01 pm

    I m creating my own admin panel for my clients and I was wondering if there is any way to create the design view (like visual/text in wordpress where you edit a page without having any knowloge of the coding.). A lot of standard CMS provide this option but I have no clue on how I can create my own. I was thinking to do some javascript programing to achieve this as a last option but I just wanted to know if there is any straight way of doing it.I want that when clients edit a page content they should be able to do in visual(design view) area like wordpress. Any suggestion on where to get started? Thanks in advance

    What you’re looking for is a WYSIWYG editor. The most popular are:

    TinyMCE (what WordPress uses):
    http://www.tinymce.com/

    CKEditor:
    http://ckeditor.com/

    XStandard:
    http://www.xstandard.com/

    You would then initialize this on whichever fields you wanted it to be used for via JavaScript.
