EE Podcast #13: Better Content Entry

March 26, 2010 at 12:30PM

In this episode of the podcast Dan and Ryan catch up on some news and happenings and then talk about the different ways of allowing clients to publish rich content through ExpressionEngine. Do you install a WYSIWYG editor, teach them HTML, give them specific HTML to use for certain situations? The choices are many.

We discuss the popular WYSIWYG editors for EE and other ways of making it as easy as possible for clients to enter rich content into their site.
