Hi Dan,

you might want to check out the 'Bluspice for MediaWiki' extension. It comes with a WYSIWYG-Editor and many many more good stuff for extending and improving the MediaWiki user expereince

BlueSpice is depeloped by HalloWelt!, a reliable German MediaWiki service provider.

Sunny regards from Germany

Since 2008 we have been using MediaWiki for our enterprise-wide encyclopedia - we call it OneWiki. It works very well. We have a great wiki. We recently upgraded and we were surprised that the rich text editor capabilities were not effective with the newer version.

It seems that the rich text editor that was used to get a "What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG)" is now obsolete and not capable with MediaWiki versions 1.16+. Due to with the recent upgrade to OneWiki's platform, MediaWiki version 1.20, OneWiki does not have an (WYSIWYG) editor. The only current rich editor that is supported by the Wikimedia Foundation is the VisualEditor<> and is still in the experiment stage. It has limited browser support and although it works well in Chrome, it doesn't work well in Internet.

Anyone else running into this issue? How are you solving it?

Thanks, Dan
