**** install doc ***
Name: TinyMCE module
Authors: Matt Westgate <drupal at asitis dot org> and
Richard Bennett <richard.b at gritechnologies dot com>
Jeff Robbins <robbins at jjeff dot com>
This module requires the third-party TinyMCE editor and a
Javascript-enabled web browser. Currently it is known to work
with Internet Explorer, Mozilla and Firefox and degrade gracefully
for Safari and Konqueror users. A browser compatibility chart is here:


1. Place the entire tinymce directory into your Drupal modules/

2. Download TinyMCE 2.0 from


Remember to uncompress the file and make sure the folder is named

3. Place the entire ’tinymce’ engine folder inside your modules/tinymce

4. Load the database definition file (tinymce.mysql) using the
tool of your choice (e.g. phpmyadmin). For mysql and command line
access use:

mysql -u user -p drupal < tinymce.mysql

Replace ’user’ with the MySQL username, and ’drupal’ with the
database being used.

4. Enable this module by navigating to:

administer > modules

5. Setup role based tinymce profiles via

administer > settings > tinymce

6. Optionally download the "TinyMCE compressor" from


And follow the instructions that come with that package.

Create new content as a role that has TinyMCE permissions and see TinyMCE in

Once TinyMCE is enabled, the default behavior is that all textareas
will use TinyMCE for all users. The admin can change these defaults

administer > settings > tinymce

The admin can choose what theme TinyMCE should be the default and
user’s can override this by editing their account (if they’ve been
given permissions to do so). User’s also have the option of disabling
TinyMCE completely.

The admin can also define which pages TinyMCE should be used on.
This cannot be changed on a per user basis.

NOTE: If you want to use img_assist with TinyMCE, you don’t have to
install a plugin. Just enable the img_assist module and click
the photo icon that appears below each textarea.

Located in the plugins directory are Drupal specific plugins for
TinyMCE. Once you’ve downloaded and installed the TinyMCE engine,
copy this plugins over the directory of TinyMCE
(tinymce/jscripts/tiny_mce/). Most of these plugins will already be
active if you use the ’advanced’ theme for tinymce. See the
documentation in each plugin folder for more details.

By default, Drupal uses the ’Filtered HTML’ input format for adding
content to the site and this can create conflicts with TinyMCE. It’s
best when using this editor to use an input format that has all
filters disabled. What I usually do is create an input format called
’Rich-text editing’ and set that as the default format for roles which
use TinyMCE exclusively. To modify your input formats go to:

Administer > input formats > configure > configure filters


Developers have complete control over when and how tinymce is enabled
for each textarea inside Drupal by creating a custom Drupal theme
function. The following example assumes you’re using a phptemplate based theme.

Put the following function in your themes template.php file:

* Customize a TinyMCE theme.
* @param init
* An array of settings TinyMCE should invoke a theme. You may override any
* of the TinyMCE settings. Details here:
* http://tinymce.moxiecode.com/wrapper.php?url=tinymce/docs/using.htm
* @param textarea_name
* The name of the textarea TinyMCE wants to enable.
* @param theme_name
* The default tinymce theme name to be enabled for this textarea. The
* sitewide default is ’simple’, but the user may also override this.
* @param is_running
* A boolean flag that identifies id TinyMCE is currently running for this
* request life cycle. It can be ignored.
function phptemplate_tinymce_theme($init, $textarea_name, $theme_name, $is_running) {
switch ($textarea_name) {
// Disable tinymce for these textareas
case ’log’:
case ’img_assist_pages’:
case ’caption’:

// Force the ’simple’ theme for some of the smaller textareas.
case ’signature’:
case ’site_mission’:
case ’site_footer’:
case ’settings][access_pages’:
$init[’theme’] = ’simple’;

// Add some extra features when using the advanced theme.
switch ($theme_name) {
case ’advanced’:
$init[’extended_valid_elements’] = array(’a[href|target|name|title|onclick]’);
$init[’theme_advanced_buttons3_add_before’] = array(’tablecontrols’);

// Always return $init; !!
return $init;

If you study the above function you can see that tinymce can be completely
disabled or you can even switch themes for a given textarea.

See the TinyMCE manual for details on the parameters that can be
sent to TinyMCE:


Ctrl+Z Undo
Ctrl+Y Redo
Ctrl+B Bold
Ctrl+I Italic
Ctrl+U Underline

I'm a user of AjaxSearch and like it as it is highly customizable.

I'm looking for a similar search engine, but for a website that uses tables other than MODx ones.

The search must be performed in fields which values store a unique alphanumeric string.
So, there is no need for the search engine to parse the text, nor to build an index.

Hence, I'm not looking for a search engine that was designed for usual CMS systems and oriented to parsing and indexing content.

The search must be performed on several tables and on specific columns.

Depending on which table and field each match belongs to, the generated link must point to different kind of pages, i.e. there must be some programmable way to generate the URLs dynamically. Such preferences should be stored in some configuration file or equivalent.

If the tool is also able to merge the results in case of several matches (something like "SELECT DISTINCT ...") it would be very nice.

The search engine must be installable on a shared hosting supporting PHP.

Any recommendation ?

Thanks you very much.]]>

But before I can do that, I need to put together a list of MODX developers that have a wide range of pricing and capabilities to suit all my clients.

The MODX Professionals directory is great, but there's one problem. Many of my clients are small businesses or nonprofits in Southern California that already have a working MODX website. They only need occasional, low-budget work: add mobile-friendly styling, install security upgrades, do a virus cleanup, add a contact form, that kind of thing. Only every once in a while, one of these clients comes to me with a request for a new website or big addition to their website.

Does anyone know of any MODX developers that are accepting smaller projects in the $100-$1,000 range, or offers maintenance plans for existing websites?

I am also looking for advanced MODX developers that can take over some sites needing custom MODX extras. The budgets for these sites is in the $1,000-$5,000 range.

I need some advice for a lightweight and fast Ajax tree view being easy to integrate with a database.

It must be independant from MODx and Wayfinder.

The tree must display categories and a [+] sign let access subcategories.

When a category is clicked, the products in it must be listed, as well as all those in subcategories. A comma separated list of products id would be ok.

If for the products the tree already includes the possibility to retrieve some fields from the database and display them using templates and placeholders it would be very nice.

A feature to move categories by drag and drop would be welcome, but this is not absolutely necessary. Furthermore, this functionnality should be switched off for the frontend.

Currently, I'm using some nice software having such tree but it's a client/server standalone which is written in Java. I'm looking for the same feature in PHP. The database is PostgreSQL, but MySQL wouldn't be an issue as I can adapt the code.

The categories in my database as stored with three columns:
CODE: eg.
CAT: eg. 81

The CODE field tells how the categories are chained.
eg. 1 > 4 > 5 > 16 > 80 > 81
I like this because it is relatively easy to understand how the categories are chained by looking at the database.
Also, I assume that this makes faster to list all products from the sub categories.

So, if you know some "Javascript (ajax) / PHP / Database" component storing the structure in a similar manner, it would be very nice, as making easier interfacing the standalone client that I'm using with the web client the I'm writing, linking the same database.

Of course, free is better, but paid component would not be an issue if not too expensive.

Last thing, I don't want to install a whole framework.

Thank you very much for your suggestions.]]>
