htmlArea WYSIWYG for WebGUI 4.6.9

Update: Now includes drop-in support for WebGUI macro's.
htmlArea is an open source WYSIWYG editor that works with IE5.5 and higher.
I've done some slight modifications to the WebGUI code to integrate support for
this WYSIWYG editor. Click here to see it working.
I've created a tarball with the files for WebGUI 4.6.9 (latest stable).
Installing (*nix example):
  1. Unpack the htmlArea_WebGUI4.6.9.tar.gz into your WebGUI root
    cd /your/WebGUI
    gunzip –c  htmlArea_WebGUI4.6.9.tar.gz | tar cvf –

    This will:
    - install the htmlArea files in www/extras/htmlArea
    - overwrite lib/WebGUI/Operation/ and
       lib/WebGUI/ with newer files that support htmlArea.
  2. edit etc/WebGUI.conf and add the full location of the htmlArea files:
    htmlArea =
  3. restart your webserver
  4. Change in WebGUI the Editor to Use to htmlArea
    Administrative functions -> Manage settings -> Edit Content Settings ->Editor to Use -> htmlArea

    In this section you can also change the size of the editor by changing the
    Text Area Rows and Text Area Columns values.

Known issues:
 If the Description field doesn’t show up properly, change the META description field in the Page properties from to . (Capital D).
