Post body with TinyMCE & Images

  1. I am writing this request after reading this post - http://www.gravityhelp.com/forums/topic/html-in-body-for-posts#post-70619

    I need to have a Wysiwyg editor like TinyMCE in the post body field that also has the ability to upload images/media since I want to keep my clients away from the admin area. I therefore need them to post from the front end. Most people that doesn't know Wordpress seems to find the admin area complicated. They tend to prefer the Facebook situation where the can post on the spot whitout having to flip from front to admin.

    Now there is a wysiwyg add on for GF but it still does not allow the upload of images.

    Chris Hajer has mentioned that you guys may be able to assist with this in the link above.

    Thanks

  2. The upload of media and images can be handled by adding those fields to your form. Does that not work for your situation? Have you looked into other WYSIWYG editors which do have upload capability? We can help integrate the WYSIWYG editor into your form, but if it does not offer upload capability, we won't be able to add that in. However, we can help you integrate upload fields into your form.

    Please post a URL to your website where the form is embedded and we can help with the WYSIWYG editor. And let us know what you need to do with the uploads you are allowing.

  3. Hi Chris,

    You may have a look here - http://howdo.us/create-post/

    As you can see al is well except for the fact that an image cannot be uploaded to the "Post Body". Yeah sure a remote image can be pasted into the "HTML" tab but I need my clients to be able to upload pics to new posts on their sites in the "Visual' tab without having to go the admin.

    "Post Image" is only for featured post images afaik.
    Thx

  4. I have actually managed to add the "Add Media" button on top of the Post Body box now so now my clients can post new posts to the front end and add media like images to their content. So I guess my problem is solved. A user has to be logged in to see the buttons so all works well now. Now I am happy with GF & Wordpress again;-) It's now a proper CMS. This has costed many hours of figuring out but it was worth it in the end.
