Over the past couple of years I managed to build a fair amount of functionality into the content administration system with my evolving MEMU (Much Enhanced Multi-User) sNews 1.6 project. This included my spruced-up version of Mattonik's Image Links Inserter, my Links Inserter for article, page and menu (category & subcategory) links, and a File Links Inserter to insert MS Word, PDF and PowerPoint files (with corresponding icons). On a site that has a lot of articles, pages, files and images, these become very useful tools.
However, I've always wanted to use MCE's WYSIWYG Editor as the main content editor and still retain the ability to auto-generate links to articles, pages, files and images using the sNews Editor's tag(tag) function and Mattonik's tag1(tag1) function (the latter being a variation on the former). The stumbling block was figuring out how to have both functioning in separate textareas in the same Admin panel - simultaneously - without affecting each other.
Bascially, I wanted to be able to generate the tag-sets as I did before in one plain textarea, then cut & paste them into MCE's HTML pop-up panel where I wanted them to display. I also wanted to be able to do the same for poll function tags and other function tags using Philmoz's Function Inserter as well.
Happily, I managed to pull it off and here's the finished product... a completely revised Content Management page
