Change History

This document tracks the enhancements and bug fixes between releases of WYMeditor.

1.0.0a1 (Alpha 1)

release-date October 17, 2011

Finally! It took us a while, but this marks the first significant release since 0.5.0rc2. It comes with:

  • 8 major bug fixes
  • 6 major enhancements
  • A huge internal code refactor to make maintaining and improving WYMeditor easier
  • A passing unit test suite containing more than 350 tests across all supported browsers

Upgrade Cycle

This release is an Alpha Quality release and we would appreciate any testing or feedback. One of the core developers is using this build in production, but plugin compatibility issues may exist. Further alpha and eventually beta builds will follow as milestone 1.x issues are completed. Once all blocker tickets are completed, this cycle will culminate in a 1.0.0 stable release.

Any feedback or discussion would be appreciated on the WYMeditor Forums.


  • The Embed plugin now supports embedding via an iframe.
  • List indent/outdent has been rewritten to fix several outstanding bugs in various browsers. Indent and outdent are now always opposites of eachother (outdenting what you just indented returns you to your original state) and the behavior is consistent across all supported browsers.
  • A list plugin is now available that enables tab for list indent and shift + tab for list outdent.

    It is available at wymeditor/plugins/list/jquery.wymeditor.list.js. To enable the plugin, create a ListPlugin object via the wymeditor.postInit option. eg::

    $('.wymeditor').wymeditor({ postInit: function(wym) { var listPlugin = new ListPlugin({}, wym); } });

  • A new Table editing plugin is now available

    The table editing plugin enables the following:

    • Users can now add and remove rows and columns from existing tables.
    • Users can merge table cells to create either colspan or rowspan.
    • Hitting the tab key while inside a table now moves the cursor to the next cell, improving usability when editing tables. This can be disabled by passing enableCellTabbing: false to the plugin initialization.

    The plugin is available at wymeditor/plugins/table/jquery.wymeditor.table.js. To enable the plugin, instantiate it during the wymeditor.postInit option. eg::

    $('.wymeditor').wymeditor({ postInit: function(wym) { var tableEditor = wym.table(); } });

  • Rangy is now included as part of the distribution and used to create consistent cross-browser selection objects.

  • A console warning message is now created if no wymPath option is provided and it can't be automatically determined. The editor also attempts to continue with the assumption that your wymPath is your current directory, instead of throwing an exception immediately.

Bug Fixes

  • A rare bug affecting ie8 users with certain combinations of CSS attributes has been fixed (with a work-around). This bug would manifest as all content in the editor temporarily and randomly dissappearing after a keypress, only to re-appear when the user moved their mouse.
  • The editor height no longer changes height by a few pixels the first time someone hovers over a tool.
  • Several list indent/outdent bugs that could result in invalid HTML and broken lists are now fixed. Users can no-longer break their lists with specific combinations of double indents and outdents.
  • The HTML parser/validator now corrects unclosed
  • tags in lists so that if a piece of HTML has previously been affected by the broken list bug, it will be automatically corrected.
  • It is now always possible to insert tables, preformatted text and blockquotes at the start and end of documents, as well as in between eachother. Previously, depending on your browser and version, you couldn't do one or more of these things.
  • It is now possible to paste content in to a table when using internet explorer.
  • Fixed some problems with ordered and unordered list nesting in Internet Explorer caused by a regex failing to account for IE's insertion of whitespace in list HTML.
  • colSpan and rowSpan attributes are no longer stripped out in Internet Explorer.
