Upgrade the TinyMCE editor to the newest version and enale auto-save

It seems that Vibe is using TinyMCE as the editor for alle entries in Vibe.

It would be nice to upgrade to a newer version af TinyMCE and also to enable the Auto-save plugin feature.

The current legacy version of TinyMCE that is built in in Vibe is one reason why some customers would like get rid of Vibe again. As a normal user it is really annoying to work with this version of the editor. Please upgrade to the newest version or consider using another editor (there are some nice tools out there!).

Our Vibe Developers have now successfully added an Auto-Save function to the TinyMCE editor in Vibe. We will save the content every 20 seconds and you will be able to retrieve the content even if your computer loses power or crashes. You can even retrieve the lost information to a new post or a different type of post. We have put a small life-jacket icon in the editor, to retrieve your lost content. You can e-mail me at fhc@zispa.dk if you need to implement this. We have also build some code you can put on a form, so that the form is saved if the users loses the connection/compter crashes or loses power. This functionality has to be added to each form that you would like to enable it on.

Frank, will the Auto-Save create an entry history item for each "save", every 20 sec? Have you tried to implement the Auto-Save to the whole installation, so it will work on all folders instead on a specific form ?

Claus, no it will store the last saved data in the Web-Browsers data store local on the machine used. The Auto-Save works on all folders/entries that uses the TinyMCE editor (Blog/Tasks/etc) for the whole site. We have made a separate form saver and that has to be enable per form.

It's possible to update the TinyMCE editor to the latest version but one looses the ekstra features the vibeteam has put into the current version (linking, adding picture, videos etc) Then you would have to html code this stuf

Perhaps these Vibe features can be build as a plugin to TinyMCE, that way it will be easier to upgrade to newer versions of TinyMCE

As the web editor is key to the user experience it should have high priority.

Any chance to include the ability for the administrator to install TinyMCE plugins, as there are many useful plugins available? https://www.tiny.cloud/docs/plugins/
