How to use tinymce with html forms

We all know tinymce is a platform independent web based Javascript HTML WYSIWYG editor.  It has the ability to convert HTML TEXTAREA fields or other HTML elements to editor instances.

I’ve used tinymce in many of my projects. I like it a lot because of it’s easy to use & rich functionality. But, despite of it’s simplicity many peoples i’ve seen, struggled to intigrate it with their forms. I don’t know why but, i’ve never face any such problem in my works.

So, in this small tutorial i’m going to share step by step how you can intigrate tinymce iwth your own web developemnt work.

Step-1
Download latest version of tinymce from the following download link & extract it.
Download link: http://tinymce.moxiecode.com/download.php

On Windows you could use WinZip or something similar, and on other operating systems such as Linux you simply extract the archive with the tar command. You can find an example on how to extract the archived file on Linux below. You should extract TinyMCE in your wwwroot or site domain root folder.

After extracting your tinymce folder structure will look like this…

Step-2
After extraction of the tinymce files you just need to do some modification with the web form page where you want to use tinymce.

[1] Include a external js file
[2] Add some javascript codes in the headder section

The codes will look like this…

Get the above javascript codes from here: http://wiki.moxiecode.com/index.php/TinyMCE:Installation

Note: This is very necessary to use approprite "tiny_mce.js" file path. This is very much important else, nothing will work.


Step-3
In the reciving side(PHP form action page) the data can be accessed by following way…


echo(stripslashes($_POST[‘content’]));
//content is the textarea element name


That’s it. Nothing more than this need to do. This will change your textarea to like this…

Forum Post E Mail

I’m trying to create a code that upon a member posting to a forum that someone else has already started will send a notification e mail to everyone involved with the forum except for the person that just made the post.
The script needs to limit the e mails to once per user incase they have previously posted to that forum many times so they won’t receive multiple e mails at once.
Below is a sample script that gets me to the point where I now need to use something like a foreach or while and input the e mail information. It works great but once I put either a while or foreach on it the script either has errors or will run forever. Any help would be great!

$get_users = “SELECT created_by FROM forumPosts WHERE topic_id=’$topic_id’ AND created_by!=’$name’”;
$run_get_users = mysql_query(”$get_users”);
$get_all_users = mysql_fetch_assoc($run_get_users);
$filtered = array_unique($get_all_users);
