Drupal 7 WYSIWYG EditorOver the last 2 1/2 years, we've created over 800 video training sessions.

In that time, we've also written over 600 tutorials on our blog.

One very common request has been for us to organize those tutorials more effectively. For example, we had 6 different tutorials on using TinyMCE as a WYWISYG editor in Drupal, but those tutorials weren't logically organized.

Today, we're taking the first step towards a logical organization. We've rounded up all six of our TinyMCE tutorials, rewritten them, and organized them into a Drupal 7 WYSIWYG Editor class.

There is one disadvantage to this approach: the class isn't in video form yet. However, we're sure the class will still useful to many members and our plan is to add videos to the tutorials. Look for more of our tutorials turned be turned into useful, organized classes in the near future.

What's in the Drupal WYSIWYG Class?

By default, Drupal does not install with a WYSIWYG editor and add formatting you need to add an editor. This class will show you how to add a WYSIWYG editor to your Drupal 7 site.

  • You'll learn what text formats are and why they are essential for adding an editor.
  • We'll install TinyMCE, one of the most popular WYSIWYG editors in the world.
  • You'll see how to improve your image handling and placement by using IMCE.
  • You'll learn how to create links more easily with the Linkit module.
  • Finally we'll show you how to add audio and video files to your content via TinyMCE.
