Turn any textarea field into a WYSIWYG editor
Product Details

htmlArea is a free WYSIWYG editor replacement for common textarea fields in HTML forms. Users can change the font size/color, make it bold/italicized/underlined, add bullets numbering, and tables, insert images and links, and more. It works with any server-side software that accepts forms, including PHP, ASP, Perl, etc and enables users to format their content as easily as if they were using a Word Processor. No HTML knowledge is required. Once the form is submitted, the raw HTML is passed along through your CGI script for use in your program. Open source license.

A great tool

This is a great tool for web developers. The cost is too low! I use it for my technical support forums. It was very easy for me to customize to and and change features. For example, I did not want my users to be able to see the raw HTML code, so that button is disabled for them, but enabled for me. Similarly, I did not want some to be able to attach images to their reply, so again I was able to conditionally disable the Image button.
Works straight away

We have a backend maintenance section for our website where non-technical people can update information on our site. However this has always been a tedious process because they do not understand how to use basic HTML formatting. This product solves a big problem for me and should hopefully lead to better content on our site. The best thing about htmlArea is that it works straight away. You can add it to your site in under five minutes. I wish I knew about this a long time ago.
I�m Impressed!

I usually don�t write reviews... also my english is not the best, but - this tool deserves a review! Very easy to setup, fully configurable, perfect commented source, it�s free!! I love this tool, it saved me weeks - so i can spend the time to write this review ;) There are many free plugins (eg. image manager!!) for this editor written in almost any common used programming language.
Very useful rich text editor

This really saved me. I was working on a similar thing in Java for our web hosting and editing concept, and I'm so glad I found this instead, it's fast, it's easy to change, it's free, it's easy to use, it's easy to adapt, what's not to love?
