Intuitive visual editing

Plone has shipped with a built-in graphical HTML editor since Plone 2.1, released in 2005.  (It amazes us that some open-source CMSes still don't include a graphical HTML editor as a core feature!)

In Plone 4, we've upgraded our graphical HTML editor to TinyMCE, a continually updated and improved editor that is widely used by many open-source and commercial products. TinyMCE offers improved usability, easier customization and a few new features, including:

  • Improved image upload and insertion dialogs
  • Strong support for HTML table editing (a weak area of our previous editor)
  • Better support for inserting Flash content and other embedded content
  • Easier inserting of hyperlinks
  • Find and replace
