Tutorial: Sharepoint (MOSS 2007) with TinyMCE rich text editor

TinyMCE rich text editor

TinyMCE rich text editor

We’ve received a couple of requests from SharePoint (MOSS 2007) users, asking us to replace the default wiki editor. The rich text editor misses out a lot of fomatting features which are relevant for wiki sites.

Our first solution would be using the open source rte called tinymce in sharepoint. Tinymce is javascript based and quite powerful.

I was wondering if someone has ever replaced the default rich text editor with another editor. How did you do it? Has anyone used tinymce with sharepoint (moss 2007) before? I googled a lot  but didn’t find a good tutorial covering this topic. Are you aware of any? A step by step guide would really be appreciated.


Littering in Tempe? Better be a rapper!

December 7, 2006

Black rapper Arizona PoliceCity leaders have apologized after a program on Tempe’s cable channel showed a white police officer telling two black men they could get out of a littering ticket by performing a rap.

Tempe Mayor Hugh Hallman and Police Chief Tom Ryff apologized for the show Thursday and suspended its future production after black community leaders voiced outrage and disappointment.

“I accept responsibility for the actions of my staff and apologize to any members of our community who have been offended,” Ryff said during a news conference Friday.

The segment appeared on “Tempe StreetBeat,” a program produced by police in the Phoenix suburb that followed several officers on patrol. It shows Sgt. Chuck Schoville pulling over two men in August in a mall parking lot.

He first asks for a name and ID from the driver and then asks the two men if they know how much the fine is for littering.

The officer then tells the men that they can avoid getting a littering ticket “if the two of you just do a little rap about — what do you want to do a rap about? Littering? About the dangers of littering.”

The two men agree, and each performs a short rap, laughing afterward. One says, “The dangers of littering, you will get a ticket. If you ain’t wit’ it, you better be experienced.”

The second man raps, “Yo, I just got pulled over ’cause I threw my trash out the window when they rolled over. They got behind me and pulled me over.”

Later, Schoville talks football with the men, one of whom agrees with his prediction that the Oakland Raiders will make it to the Super Bowl this year.

Schoville then says, “You know why you say I’m right? Because I got a gun and badge. I’m always right. That’s the way it works, right?” The three laugh and the two men get in their car.

Leaders of chapters of the
National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and the National Action Network expressed outrage and demanded that the city act.

The Rev. Jarrett Maupin of the National Action Network, who was at Friday’s news conference, said he had accepted Hallman’s and Ryff’s apologies and intends to make sure the police department makes good on a proposal for an African American advisory board and increased diversity training.

“It’s important for police officers to realize that black people do not speak hip hop,” Maupin said. “We’re not all rappers and thugs and gangbangers. We speak the English language and we’re entitled to the same amount of respect.”

Ryff said the department is investigating how the video got on the air, who watched it and who edited it. He wouldn’t discuss whether there would be any punishment for those involved.

The chief said that he hadn’t been able to contact Schoville, a 25-year veteran of the Tempe force, because the officer is on vacation. A message was left with the department seeking comment from the sergeant.

Because the men in the video were not cited, Tempe police had no record of their names.

Britney Spears Crotch

December 5, 2006

Some days ago some nude pictures of Britney Spears with her crotch hanging out appeared on the net. Ehm.., Crotch hanging out, no, she had no underwear / no panties at all! I guess this is what happens when you hang around Paris Hilton for a long time. Remember also Paris Hilton’s naked cameltoe that gave her a lot of attention? I guess this is the same idea Britney Spears inherited. View the pictures of Britney Spears Crotch.

Ali G discussing science and technology

Also be sure to watch Cohen’s new comedy movie “Borat” which is currently playing in cinemas.

Google now offers thousands of free music videos?

October 15, 2006

On thursday, Jason Liebman -from the google video team- announced that google is now offering on-demand music videos for free!

Google announced major partnerships with 2 of the world’s largest music companies: Sony BMG and Warner Music Group. Google will be streaming thousands of music videos on Google Video which will be ad-supported.

This could be the beginning of the end of YouTube, I guess:-( As for me YouTube still offers more music videos, they are easier to find and they are all free. So why even bother to visit google videos? I guess google’s next step will be to ban and remove all music videos from YouTube. I somehow don’t have a good feeling about google owning youtube, do you?

Windows XP on a MacBook Pro

October 13, 2006

I’m looking forward to buy the most sexiest notebook ever made by human, a MacBook Pro 17″. I’m quite satisfied with the design, os and perfomance of the macbook, but there is only one problem!

I need Windows Operating System for most of my duties. Be it customer support, coaching, presentations and so on. Apart from that I should be able to implement the macbook in our company’s network infrastracture which is based on Microsoft windows and use most of the services available, e.g. SharePoint, Exchange Server, access to network drives etc.

I’m not sure how macOS works in a windows network but it would make my life a lot easier if I could also install Windows XP on it. Something like a dual-boot. There were rumors that this is now possible on Intel MacBooks. I read a lot on how to do this, but unfortunately I haven’t found someone who could prove it working. Some say it might work with microsoft’s vista but not with xp.

Do you think XP could run on a mac? Does anyone have experience with windows XP on a MacBook? Or witnessed XP running on a macBook pro?

MacBooks are very expensive and would like to be sure that Microsoft’s XP will run on it before I buy it (this month)!

Thanks for your feedback!
