Quick Installation

  1. Install the Tiny MCE Editor.
  2. Download and uncompress it to your desktop or server.
  3. Find the folder where you installed Tiny MCE. For our purposes we will assume this is ~/tinymce.
  4. Open the Tiny Mce plugins folder, ~/tinymce/plugins and copy in the eqneditor directory from the uncompressed
  5. Integrate Tiny MCE into your web page in the normal way.
  6. On your web page, locate the TinyMCE.init function, and modify (or add) the plugin property so it contains plugins : 'eqneditor',
  7. Now locate the toolbar property and add our new button eqneditor.
  8. The final code should resemble:
    <script type="text/javascript">
    plugins: [
    "eqneditor advlist autolink lists link image charmap print preview anchor",
    "searchreplace visualblocks code fullscreen",
    "insertdatetime media table contextmenu paste" ],
    toolbar: "undo redo | eqneditor link image | styleselect | bold italic | bullist numlist outdent indent ",
    selector : "textarea"
    <textarea name="content" style="width:100%"></textarea>
