I think it would be a mistake to rip it out.
While I don't use it on my own sites, clients who don't know html (which is
almost all of them) want this type of functionality. If we separate it I can
see support being eventually dropped for it. Losing a WYSWYG editor in
Geeklog would make it much less desirable for the average user.
If the FCKeditor is not working out, is there another WYSWYG editor that
could be incorporated into Geeklog instead?

what's our commitment to support FCKeditor?
The reason I'm asking is that I keep getting complaints from users about
things not working. Since I don't use it myself, I often can't really help.
Currently, we have 3 open bugs plus 1 feature request for FCKeditor. The
biggest issue: It seems image upload through FCKeditor isn't working at all.
>From what I can see, that's due to 2 problems:
- The security fix we made for the upload function seems to effectively
disable it (looks like you were right, Justin)
- Even if you manage to upload an image (or pick one that's already on
the server), the <img> tags are removed from the post by default (that's
Both issues would need some commitment from someone to fix (securly, that
I guess what I'm looking for is someone who commits to supporting
FCKeditor properly, i.e. looks into bugreports and at least scans the
forums for problems people have with it.
Because otherwise, I'm close to ripping it out again and provide it as
separate "use at your own risk" package. That would be more honest than
what we're promising right now ...
