I've decided to stop griping and finally add a rich text editor to BlogCFC (as an option of course). I'm looking into TinyMCE first with possible support for CKEditor as well. Some things have cropped up though that worry me.
First off - it is a bit difficult to get tinymce to ignore certain elements, like the more tag. I could simply add a new form field to the editor that would be used for all the text you would normally place before the more - I could name this the excerpt which is really what it is.
Code blocks are more worrisome though. I've looked at a Mango plugin for it, and while it isn't quite working for me, I assume I'll get it there eventually, but it begs the question:
If code blocks just don't work well in tinyMCE, would folks be ok with not being able to use tinyMCE? I figure it would still be a useful feature for BlogCFC users of a non-technical nature. They can use all the pretty buttons, make nice blog entries, etc. Those of us who normally need code blocks can handle HTML ourselves typically.
