Rich text editor
The rich text editor enables a more intuitive "what you see is what you get" (WYSIWYG) work space when creating and editing pages on a MediaWiki-based site. It uses a special version of the FCKeditor, a WYSIWYG editor that outputs wiki code, much as a html editor produces html code.
- Students and instructors will get an option of using the New rich text editor and as well the basic editor in the 'edit section' of an article.
- In order to use the rich text editor, users will see a link "[Rich Editor] " right above the the basic editor. Clicking that will enable the new rich text editor.
- Users can disable the feature anytime they want, by selecting the option "[Disable rich editor] ".

- Rich editing: instead of writing inside a plain text area, using Wikitext markup for the text structure and formatting, you can use visual tools, which reflect the final output.
- Easy table creation.
- Easy link creation, including automated search for internal articles.
- Easy image insertion, including automated search for uploaded image files.
- References are displayed as small icons, not disturbing the editing, making them easy to create and edit.
- Formulas are rendered inside the editor, making it easy to edit them with a mouse click.
