Provide users a WYSIWYG editor with image support in Drupal

So you want to know how to allow a client or staff member to edit HTML content via a WYSIWYG editor w/ integrated and easy to use image support? We do this with Wysiwyg API, IMCE & IMCE Wysiwyg API bridge modules. The IMCE Wysiwyg API bridge module is a support module to bridge between IMCE image upload/browsing capability and Wysiwyg editors, so have them both installed and working first. Following are my quick notes to provide Drupal users a WYSIWYG editor with image support:

Wysiwyg API module in Drupal 5 & 6 = So many Wysiwyg editors!

The WYSIWYG API module allows to users of your drupal site to use many different WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) Web browser based editors for editing content. This module looks to be the up and coming WYSIWYG module and is over taking the other modules of this type. This module depends on third-party editor libraries, most often based on JavaScript. Follows are my quick and dirty set up notes:

IMCE module for Image and File uploads

The IMCE module for Image and File uploads, browsing and more in Drupal 5 & 6

Zen theme with Drupal

Zen theme & sub themes for Drupal

If you are building your own standards-compliant theme for Drupal, start with the Zen theme. Its an easy and clean theme with great documentation both included and available online. It has the support of a large community of developers and users. The Zen theme is meant to be a very flexible standards-compliant and semantically correct XHTML theme that can be easily modified through CSS and Drupal’s template system. I have found it works well alongside the CSS Injector module.

Create a User managed SlideShow on Drupal 6 w/ the CCK, FileField, ImageField, ImageAPI, ImageCache & Thickbox modules.

These are quick instructions to allow a specific user Role (ie: client/staff/designer) to manage a web based SlideShow using Drupal. This SlideShow setup can be used; either for a specific number of SlideShow nodes to be edited by the user, or a SlideShow content type to be managed by the user.
