Get WYSIWYG Editor To Work In Drupal 7

Allows the use of client-side editors to edit content. It simplifies the installation and integration of the editor of your choice. This module replaces all other editor integration modules. No other Drupal module is required.The Wysiwyg module supports any kind of client-side editor including HTML editors (a.k.a. WYSIWYG), pseudo-editors (buttons to insert markup into a textarea), or even Flash-based applications. The editor library must be downloaded separately. Various editors are supported (see below).The Wysiwyg module also provides an abstraction layer for other Drupal modules to integrate with any editor. This means that other Drupal modules can expose content-editing functionality, regardless of which editor you have installed.

  1. Log into the Drupal 7 admin dashboard.
  2. Using the top menu bar, locate and click on the Configuration option.
  3. From this next page, you want to find and click the Performance option located under the Development category.
  4. From this next screen, scroll down the page to the Bandwidth Optimization category. You will see a checkbox labeled Aggregate JavaScript files. Be sure to check the box next to it and then click on the Save configuration button underneath.
  5. Return to your content type editor and you should now see the WYSIWYG buttons in the body editor. For demonstration, we are using the Basic Pages content type. Below you can see how simply checking that option affects the editor.
