As a content-focused web development firm, we’re frequently called on to design and build content management systems for our clients. More often than not, that involves using some form of in-browser rich text editor (RTE) to more easily allow users to add and edit content. Over the years we’ve used a number of different scripts and libraries to do this—everything from TinyMCE and CK Editor to our own home-grown solutions. The thing is that we’ve never felt 100% happy with any software we’ve used.
Before we begin yet another project that will involve a RTE (possibly one we roll ourselves), we thought it might be good to ask around to get some feedback from you and/or your clients. We’ve put together two short surveys—one aimed at developers, the other at authors/content folks—to help us better understand what you do with RTEs and what your preferences are with respect to their overall user interface.
If you have 5 minutes (and we promise that’s all it will take), we’d love for you to take one of the following two surveys:
Thanks in advance for your help. When we finish with the survey, we’ll be happy to share the findings.
