All I'm trying to achieve, which I can't believe it is still so difficult, especially since D6 was released over a year ago now, is to have a wysiwyg editor which allows the user to upload an image and insert it inline, and then resize it and float the damn thing left or right. It is really quite laughable that drupal doesn't do this out-of-the-box with the core upload module and whatever editor is chosen.
Anyway, I have the wysiwyg API installed, and I like nicEdit. I've tried fckeditor and tinymce, and I did not like them - what you see in the text area is not what you see once the node is saved - NiceEdit was far more accurate without having to mess around with css and other settings. The rest of the supported editors are even worse.
For uploading images I've tried:
· filefield + imagefield + filefield insert
The problem is that the 'insert image' button doesn't work on either of these modules with NicEdit enabled.
If I disable NicEdit, then the html for the image is inserted, but this is far too clumsy for a production site.
So, who/what is to blame?
Is it the editors which aren't allowing the insertion?
Is it because the wysiwyg API module isn't working properly?
Is it because filefield insert and imagepicker aren't inserting in a proper manner?
Most importantly, can anyone give me a combination that actually WORKS?
wysiwyg API + [which editor?] + [which image uploader?]
