Pinned topic Use Ephox EditLive as rich text editor in WEF?

‏2013-06-19T13:58:13Z |

Hello,

in WCM v7 (Web Content Management) you can use Ephox EditLive as rich text editor. Is it possible to use/integrate this rich text editor in my own WEF portlet projects? How can I achieve this or is this not allowed due to any license restrictions?

Kind regards

Jens Hagel

    Jens,

    For licensing questions, you should contact your official sales or support contact, as anything posted in a volunteer public forum like this should probably taken as "opinion" and not fact..  I am not aware of any licensing that allows use of that editor in custom portlets, but I am not in sales, support or legal, so again, it's best to contact an official representative to find out for sure.

    If you were able to get licensing support for it,  then WEF basically generates HTML markup, CSS and JS, so if you were able to get the licensing AND info on how to use it wrt those standards, then in theory you may be able to leverage it in a custom portlet.

    I hope that info helps,

    While possibly not as feature rich as the Ephox editor, WEF does include support for a dojo-based rich text editor.  The Dojo Rich Text Editor builder provides access to this functionality in the Dojo feature set.
