Charlene,

HTML Editor is the new incarnation of what IRite was... so no, it is not like Adobe Contribute... but there is no specific application designated, so essentially, you could use its functionality for whatever you have programmed. In other words, it will allow you to quickly add a WYSIWYG editor to any web page... how you choose to use it from there is up to you.

So it could be used to update the content that is stored in a database or it could be used to update content on a flat file instance (which would probably be the closest thing to Contribute). Overall, though, this is a major update to iRite (so it will be applied almost the same way) but now will have the latest version of FCKeditor, as well as, a file browser making it easier to upload and edit images.

Cheers,

Brian

UPLOAD:

can I set the Upload folder for my own, will this be easier the in iRite? For examplet, If I have lots of users, to have all their own folder?

Automatic rename FILENAMES? so that there will be no spaces or bad characters?

I'm not sure about the file renaming functionality, I'm having someone look into that. As for the dynamicly named folder this is not a feature. You could however set the name of the folder to be a session variable and just update that variable to change the folder name.

confirm

hi

I guess I would like to confirm that this software can edit static html pages and how is it implemented.

We purchased cutesoft php on the asurance by the cutesoft that we could edit static php file eg. non CMS websites. We were told the wrong information and burned $600.00.

If its not suitable then we need to go down the adobe contribute track

The new HTML editor and iRite will not function on a static html page. They only work in server side pages like php. Unless the page was dynamic you would not be able to update it's content with this editor.

Charlene,

It is a a WYSIWYG editor, so yes you can use it to update static (or semi-dynamic) pages. But - you HAVE to use some sort of CMS/database system for this to work. In other words, you need a "back-end" where you would access the HTMLEditor to make the update. While you could get around not having a database by saving the content you create to a "flat file," that would be less desirable than simply saving the content in a database and having PHP pull the results.

Here's where you can see it in use on a new site I am developing - the first shot is from the CMS/DataAssaidt update page and the second is a live view of what the public sees (identical to what is in the editor window):

Now, the front end:

Hope that helps,

Brian
