Some of my users are complaining that FCK editor loads rather slow.
I'd lie if i say it's a lightening, but I do not grow roots waiting Very Happy
Any idea how to speed up things?

This is a common problem with the editor, as of yet I not found a real fix. Have you thought of minimizing the options within the toolbar and toolbar bands?

Already did that...
On my old nuke 6.9 I was using wysiwyg 3.0 (I think based on Spaw) and it was faster . Pity it didnt work with Firefox...

Thats always been the negitive of FCK, is how slow it loads.

I am sure with some coding changes you can replace FCK with Spaw.

I did some testing with SPAW integrated with nukeWYSIWYG, but couldn't get it to work in the time I had available. I've said before that the trade-off of functionality vs. load time makes FCKeditor the preferred editor, and I tested the major ones pretty extensively before reaching that decision. Remember that the grass isn't always greener on the other side: some functions in PHP-Nuke are fairly poorly defined and would load slowly with any WYSIWYG editor (e.g. submit news). That said, I may look into some way to optionally load the editor, or the additional tools, so you can use it if you want it.

The next version off FCK editor 2.3 should be 3 times faster.

may be that is a solution

Thanks for pointing that out - we will begin testing with nukeWYSIWYG immediately.

I have been testing it out. Some nice fixes and a few additions. But I think the 3x speed increase is a bit of overstatement. It loads faster, but I would not say its that much.

Wow! It added a maximize feature, too! Several people have asked for that...

Could it get any BETTER?

The new version adds some very important features:
- maximize (already mentioned)
- single (detach) toolbar (think submit news and add content) - one toolbar for each editor instance!!!!! (unfortunately, this currently has issues with IE...surprise!)
- FitWindow (not sure what this does yet, but it sounds interesting)
- AutoGrow (expands the toolbar to show all content when editing!
- and a host of other fixes, improvements and tighter security

Many of the enhancements were contributed by others and adopted into the core source. THIS IS WHAT OPEN SOURCE IS TRULY ABOUT.

kguske - Does the color menus for text and fill not work for you in FireFox?

technocrat, haven't played with that, but will try it.

With consolidated image loading and a single toolbar, news and content and other multi-textarea forms will load MUCH faster... I can't wait to get home to test it...

Actually its putting the selection menus for me on the screen, but way off to the top where I have to scroll up to see them. Confused Not sure what why

These notes from the 2.3 changes might address part of the color issues:

The "Text Color" and "Background Color" commands buttons have enhancements on the interface.

and

The "Background Color" command now works correctly when the GeckoUseSPAN setting is disabled (default).

2.3 is released, so we'll begin our testing on using it with nukeWYSIWYG this weekend.
