Default Want a WYSIWYG detailed description text area?

Does anyone have a need for a WYSIWYG mod for your detailed description text area?

Here is what it looks like...

If anyone wants it, I'll put a howto together

Hello everyone!
Just a little something you might find usefull.

After installation, you'll be able to use the Full Description are as a WYSIWYG editor. Kind of like FrontPage and Dreamweaver.

You can find details about it at http://www.interactivetools.com/products/htmlarea/documentation.html

Here we go...

First download the file from http://www.ewdhosting.com/htmlarea.zip

Unzip it to your computer and upload the entire 'htmlarea" folder into your xcart root directory (eg: /xcart/htmlarea )

Now open the following (according to your version) and add the following right in between the <head> and </head> tags...

Pro: open /xcart/skin1/admin/home.tpl
Gold: open /xcart/skin1/single/home.tpl

Code:
<head> {literal} <script language="Javascript1.2"><!-- // load htmlarea _editor_url = "../htmlarea/"; // URL to htmlarea files var win_ie_ver = parseFloat(navigator.appVersion.split("MSIE")[1]); if (navigator.userAgent.indexOf('Mac') >= 0) { win_ie_ver = 0; } if (navigator.userAgent.indexOf('Windows CE') >= 0) { win_ie_ver = 0; } if (navigator.userAgent.indexOf('Opera') >= 0) { win_ie_ver = 0; } if (win_ie_ver >= 5.5) { document.write('<scr' + 'ipt src="' +_editor_url+ 'editor.js"'); document.write(' language="Javascript1.2"></scr' + 'ipt>'); } else { document.write('<scr'+'ipt>function editor_generate() { return false; }</scr'+'ipt>'); } // --></script> {/literal} </head>

Now open /xcart/skin1/main/product_modify.tpl and add the following to the top of the file...

Code:
<script language="JavaScript1.2" defer> editor_generate('fulldescr'); </script>

That should be it!

Now log into to admin and try to add or edit a product. Your detailed description box should be just like the screenshot in the first post

That is weird!
You should definitely have that file in the admin directory.

Sorry about the mix up.
I have updated the howto to show which file to edit depending on your version of xcart

Default htmlarea - working?

Looking for confirmation that someone else has this working?

I'm on 3.5.3 Gold and I can't seem to get the HTML editor to show up.

Please post the path to your xcart install and the path for the htmlarea directory.
