Finally we got the new web site out the door. This new site is a complete redesign and it also contains a lot new community features. We have described each of the features below you feedback is always welcome so that we can continue to improve the community functions.
We have now moved away from the SourceForge issue tracker and built our own custom one. This gives us the ability to add exactly the features we want such as bug voting and tie it to GitHub. It should now be a lot faster to work with since SourceForge was a pretty slow service. We will also be more responsive when it comes to resolving bugs now when we have a more easy to use tool.
The Wiki was moved from MediaWiki into a custom Wiki that uses HTML and TinyMCE for it’s editor interface. The wiki lets you structure pages into a page tree and supports syntax validation for source code samples.
A popular feature of the old site was the translation service that enabled uses to translate TinyMCE to it’s native language. We have improved this feature for the new site and it’s now possible to both translate and preview the results on the site. It makes it a lot faster and easier to contribute language packs to the project and those contributions are always welcome.
The documentation has been improved and one of these improvements is the API documentation. This one is now inline inside the wiki, it’s exported out of the source code of TinyMCE using our Moxiedoc tool and users can comment on the different parts of it. It’s very similar to how www.php.net has it’s documentation.
The example section has been improved by moving all examples into categories. We will continue to add more examples here and any feedback on what to add here is always welcome.
Custom download packages
A common complaint we see regarding TinyMCE is that people say it has to many files. So we wanted to change that, the site now includes a tool for only selecting the components you need and save this as a preset on your account. Then each release you can simply just download the preset package.
