    Question PHP CMS text formatting

    Does anyone have any experience with PHP CMS text formatting editors (WYSIWYG) just like the one I'm typing in now to get this message posted?

    I've looked in to FCKeditor and TinyMCE but they seem bloated and riddled with documentation. All I need my app to do is the very simple bold, italic, underline, align and the ability to add a link; NO image uploading, NO fancy stuff.

    Any thoughts? Thanks.

    oh, see the usage.htm file, it lists out all the true/false parameters for turning on and off different tools etc (along with setting width, height etc), when you initialize the editor.

    Yes, I saw that one. It looks really good. Right now I am using TinyMCE it and it works at least 10 times better than FCKeditor (that thing is trash). I'm actually beginning to like TinyMCE but I know in the background there are tons of files I'm not using and it's bloating my app.

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    if you use the one I suggested, you simply tell it true or false to turn on/off (load or do not load) those specific features. If they are off, they don't load, for instance he icon for file uploads. Its not going to load everything, all the images etc, then just "hide them", it simply won't load them at all. If its not loading the files, and they are sitting there, its not going to affect your applications performance, you just have extra files on the server -- all of which are very tiny, so that shouldn't be an issue.
