2 comments



Below are the simple steps to changes the WCM editor from default rich text to Ephox edit Live. First of all you have to download Ephox edit live from http://ephox.com/download and the same application on to your portal server if not already installed.
  • Login to WAS Console.
  • Navigate to Applications->Application Types -> WebSphere enterprise applications.
  • Click on Install and select the .ear file you downloaded and click Next. Keep the default options keep going to next pages.
  • Make sure you select websphere_portal as the server not server1 while installing the .ear and finish the installation and save the configuration.
  • Start the application if its not already started.
  • Login to portal as administrator and navigate to WCM Authoring portlet -> Preferences > Configure.

  • Expand the Rich Text Options section , select Custom Editor in the drop down and enter the following in the text box "/wps/ephox/;jsp/html/EditLiveJavaEditor.jsp"and click OK.
  • Now navigate to WCM Authoring portlet -> Preferences > Edit Shared Settings.
  • Expand the RichTextOptions section , select Custom Editor in the drop down and enter the following in the text box "/wps/ephox/;jsp/html/EditLiveJavaEditor.jsp"and click OK.
  • Now go to any content item that uses rich text and you can see its using ephox edit live edit instead of IBM's default RTE. you can see the difference in the below images.
  • You can easily toggle between the design view and code view in the bottom left corner.

Hi!, I currently work at IBM using WCM, and as I find Ephox rather buggy, I've been looking up for options. One of those is to set a WYSIWYG editor using a jsp file, and my choice is to go with TinyMCE. The problem is that I could not find any jsp package for TinyMCE, and what is explained here is not possible as I could not find such "Integration zip"

Is there anything you could to do help me in this?
Thanks a lot!
