Today I created the MyDrupalJourney.com website to document my path through Drupal. Having created a few sites using Drupal 6 for myself, friends and a little freelance work, I thought it was time to create some kind of log as I move into Drupal 7, beginning with Drupal 7.2. My plan is to add a screenshot of the Home Page with each post so I can see the changes I make to this website as I develop my D7 skills. So I guess my first step is to install and enable some modules to allow me to do just that. Those modules included:
- WYSIWYG (7.x-2.x-dev) using CKEditor (18.104.22.16802)
- IMCE (7.x-1.4)
- IMCE Wysiwyg API bridge (7.x-1.x-dev)
Initially, I tried installing the WYSIWYG module from the D7 Modules page, using a link from the WYSIWYG (7.x-2.0) project page. It did not work. I received some error about not being able to create some sub-directories. I tried again and got some different errors and decided that this part of D7 is not quite ready for prime time. So I installed the module manually. After enabling the WYSIWYG module by downloading the .zip file, unzipping, and uploading to the modules folder via FileZilla, I did not get any errors upon enabling them. The next step was to download the editor of choice and place it in its own folder in the libraries folder. You have to create the libraries folder first. After doing so, the WYSIWYG module remarked that it could not recognize the version of CKEditor and had a red "X" next to its name. Off to the issue queue I went to find the answer (http://drupal.org/node/1182106) was in the WYSIWYG (7.x-2.0) module. The recommended fix was to install the .dev version, which I then did. That fixed the problem. Then I enabled the IMCE and IMCE Wysiwyg API bridge modules.
