I was playing around with integrating Interactive Tools’ HTMLArea into MovableType earlier today, but I’ve taken it back out. It seemed to be working pretty well overall, but then I tried to edit an entry that had a picture in it. I usually build these by using a custom table in the entry and HTMLArea proceeded to chomp on it pretty well when I re-saved the entry to the database.
Well, I can’t have that happening.
I mainly installed it to make life easier on Anne and my sister as they’re not as HTML savvy as I am. I’ll just have to teach them how to use w.bloggar instead I suppose. That’s not a perfect solution either as it doesn’t support MT’s extended entries yet nor multiple categories, but it’s better than a sharp stick in the eye.
I guess I need to sit down and look at all of the currently available blogging tools to see if I can’t find something that is both powerful and relatively easy to use. Anyone out there got favorites they’d like to share?
