text editing interface for total noobs

Recommended Posts

So I'm developing this website for my dad where he can go to his page, login to the admin area, and edit the text on any of his pages in a text area. This is fine, except that he doesnt know HTML. I need some noob-friendly interface for him to use, kind of like on a forum or on ebay where you input your item description. Any where to start?

I think I'm looking more for a javascript editor that could post the html code to a php file, instead of mimicking BBcode.

you could post the html to a txt file then include it into the php file makes it alot easier to do than doing javascript just to put it in and html well just tell your dad to use front page or some website maker theirs a free website maker on yahoo.com look it up on the small business area meaning were they do hosting.

I don't think you understand. The javascript would only be used to parse HTML in real time kind of like the design view on frontpage. How would saving the code to a text file help? It's saving to a database as of now.

Use FCKeditor, it has a huge set of features, very WYSIWYG and it has a PHP interface:
