29    <h1>HTMLArea -- the free<br/>customizable online editor</h1>
30
31    <p>
32      HTMLArea is a free, customizable online editor.  It works inside your
33      browser.  It uses a non-standard feature implemented in Internet
34      Explorer 5.5 or better for Windows and Mozilla 1.3 or better (any
35      platform), therefore it will only work in one of these browsers.
36    </p>
37
38    <p>
39      HTMLArea is copyright <a
40      href="http://interactivetools.com">InteractiveTools.com</a> and <a
41      href="http://dynarch.com">Dynarch.com</a> and it is
42      released under a BSD-style license.  HTMLArea is created and developed
43      upto version 2.03 by InteractiveTools.com.  Version 3.0 developed by
44      <a href="http://dynarch.com/mishoo/">Mihai Bazon</a> for
45      InteractiveTools.  It contains code sponsored by third-party companies as well.
46      Please see our About Box for details about who sponsored what plugins.

78    <h2>Installation</h2>
79
80    <p>
81      Installation is (or should be) easy.  You need to unpack the ZIP file
82      in a directory accessible through your webserver.  Supposing you
83      unpack in your <tt>DocumentRoot</tt> and your <tt>DocumentRoot</tt> is
84      <tt>/var/www/html</tt> as in a standard RedHat installation, you need
85      to acomplish the following steps: (the example is for a Unix-like
86      operating system)
87    </p>
88
89    <pre style="margin-left: 2em"
90>
91cd /var/www/html
92unzip /path/to/archive/<% $basename %>.zip
93mv <% $basename %> htmlarea
94find htmlarea/ -type f -exec chmod 644 {} \;
95find htmlarea/ -type d -exec chmod 755 {} \;
96find htmlarea/ -name "*.cgi" -exec chmod 755 {} \;</pre>
97
98    <p>
99      <strong>Notes.</strong> You may chose to symlink "htmlarea" to "<%
100      $basename %>", in which case your server needs to be configured to
101      "<tt>FollowSymLinks</tt>".  You need to make sure that *.cgi files are
102      interpreted as CGI scripts.  If you want to use the SpellChecker
103      plugin you need to have a recent version of Perl installed (I
104      recommend 5.8.0) on the server, and the module Text::Aspell, available
105      from CPAN.  More info in "<a
106      href="plugins/SpellChecker/readme-tech.html">plugins/SpellChecker/readme-tech.html</a>".
107    </p>
108
109    <p>About how to setup your pages to use the editor, please read the
110      [outdated yet generally valid] <a
111        href="reference.html">documentation</a>.</p>

140
141    <p>We have a <a
142    href="http://sourceforge.net/projects/itools-htmlarea/">project page</a>
143    at <a href="http://sourceforge.net">SourceForge.net</a>.  There you can
144    also find out <a href="http://sourceforge.net/cvs/?group_id=69750">how
145    to retrieve the code from CVS</a>, or you can <a
146    href="http://cvs.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/itools-htmlarea">browse
147    the CVS online</a>.  We also have a <a
148    href="http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?atid=525656&group_id=69750&func=browse">bug
149    system</a>, a <a
150    href="http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?atid=525658&group_id=69750&func=browse">patch
151    tracking system</a> and a <a
152    href="http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?atid=525659&group_id=69750&func=browse">feature
153    request page</a>.</p>
154
155    <p>We invite you to say everything you want about HTMLArea <a
156    href="http://www.interactivetools.com/forum/gforum.cgi?forum=14;">on the
157    forums</a> at InteractiveTools.com.  There you should also find the
158    latest news.</p>
159
160    <p>Sometimes I post news about the latest developments on <a
161    href="http://dynarch.com/mishoo/">my personal homepage</a>.</p>
162
163    <h2>"It doesn't work, what's wrong?"</h2>
164
165    <p>If it doesn't work, you have several options:</p>
166
167    <ul>
168
169      <li>Post a message to the forum.  Describe your problem in as much
170      detail as possible.  Include errors you might find in the JavaScript
171      console (if you are a Mozilla user), or errors displayed by IE (though
172      they're most of the times useless).</li>
173
174      <li>If you're positive that you discovered a bug in HTMLArea then feel
175      free to fill a bug report in our bug system.  If you have the time you
176      should check to see if a similar bug was reported or not; it might be
177      fixed already in the CVS ;-) If you're positive that a similar bug was
178      not yet reported, do fill a bug report and please include as much
179      detail as possible, such as your browser, OS, errors from JavaScript
180      console, etc.</li>
181
182      <li>If you want a new feature to be implemented, post it on the
183      features request and someone will hopefully take care of it.</li>
184
185    </ul>
186
187    <p>You can <a href="mailto:mihai_bazon@yahoo.com">contact me directly</a>
188    <em>only</em> if you want to pay me for implementing custom features to
189    HTMLArea.  If you want to sponsor these features (that is, allow them to
190    get back into the public HTMLArea distribution) I'll be cheaper. ;-)</p>
