This is a proposal for a feature that enables images to be placed inline within the textareas controlled by the Aloha editor so that site editors can place, size, upload and select images for content regions in a WYSIWYG kind of way.
The solution should be seamless and simple. I am thinking "one-button-on-the-iphone simple" in design and implementation.
There are three solutions that I know of, and I'll offer summaries here:
- IMCE file browser with the http://drupal.org/project/imce_wysiwyg module. See also this Drupalcon Munich presentation: http://munich2012.drupal.org/program/sessions/best-practices-wysiwyg-inl...
- The Media Module http://drupal.org/project/media
- SCALD, a feature-packed module that appears to be brand new. http://drupal.org/project/scald
I'd like to throw this out there for some discussion. Should SPARK adopt one of the above, all or the above, or make it configurable so you can choose whatever you want to use?
I personally like the Media module or the Scald module method. I don't think the IMCE method uses the D7 managed file system.
