I'm testing TWiki 4.2.0 beta2 with TMCE. I'm testing my old pages with the automatic raw edit mode of TMCE.

I first added these values to my TWikiPreferences page:

  • TMCE settings
    • Set WYSIWYG_EXCLUDE = html|comment

This works very good to switch to raw editor for HTML 'enhanced' pages. But what I found out is that the raw editor still shows the help of TMCE above the edit field.

If I click on "raw edit", then the help shows the raw help above the edit field.

Is it possible to show the raw edit help if TMCE switches down to raw editor?

Perhaps the TWikiUpgradeGuide.html should mention these values with useful defaults. Perhaps my settings above still miss the best basic settings to use TMCE as default editor for old pages.

But with this auto raw mode things look very, very good for an upgrade to 4.2.0!!

Confirmed, but I really don't think this is a release blocker. Downgrading from Urgent to Normal.


Yes, that's right, no blocker. But in the beta test I've read that all items should be added as urgent. So did I. I'm fine with the lower priority.
