  1. I am upgrading a news site which has grown from one news reporter to many. The present design has the reporter using uSnotepad and fleshing out tag delimited areas in a new .php file. We all know it's a hack. And while the presentation on the site is standard looking it's only because there is one reporter and he understands the workings of this template. When the template isn't adequate, he knows too how to modify, and he knows how to fix it when he breaks it. Well we can't do that anymore. We do have an administrative editor that can tweak things but we want the story input process to be as helpful and as foolproof as it can be for the unaccomplished html authors; with their plain text copy and a picture or two. It sounds so simple doesn't it? We use a client side javascript app called tinymce which, while it has it's problems, works well for html formatting of text input. Our advertisers use it for copy. They know what they want and are accomplished enough to use it. Our news reporters are community guys and, as described above, would wind up just playing around. Lord knows what would come out. Blinking text! (can you do that anymore?) So, now that I've droned on and on... would someone suggest a process or interface that allows remote, html ignorant news reporters to submit news reports in a standard format. We would expect them to create a proper headline, edit paragraphs, and to insert images where appropriate (with subtitles). Perhaps a link. We expect the need to offer some instruction. The authors are trusted, so we don't need to monitor - we need the input interface and formatting. The stories will include images. ANY ideas are welcome. We, I, really don't know who to proceed with this. The only "formatting" applications I know of are uSWord and tinymce. I know uSWord can be motored with OLE and I'd be willing to do that if necessary... but it seems a bit much and our server is Linux. Forget using a text box. Nobody can really use a text box. After I blew up stackoverflow, I knew this was true. (Except,I have to admit, I've been unable to blow this site's input with the standard trickery.) We'd even consider a 3rd party service to process input. HELP! And thanks.
  2. I apologize if it's the wrong section, I don't know which other section this question would belong in and it is the most popular section on the forum. Say I have a site where users are can purchase "packages" and to do so, they are sending payments directly to the company using a payment processor. The company tracks all the payments in the back-end. The users are also able to see their earnings, balance and withdrawals. Normally a user can make a withdrawal request and the company will send that user his earning balance. After the user receives his earnings in his bank account, he can go back to the site and purchase a new package. That's all great. But what if I want to give an option to the users where they can use the earnings in their account on the site to purchase a new package, instead of going through a payment processor? For e.g. I have $100 as my earning balance in my site's account. And the package I want to purchase is $50. I can simply purchase that package using the $100 I have in my account, instead of making a withdrawal request and wait for the $100 to show up in my bank account and then I go back to the site and purchase that package using a payment processor, as I did originally. I am wondering, if I give users that option, do I need to worry about anything security wise? Is that a wise option to give or should I just stick to payment processor for all user payments? *note I am not asking how to code it.
