Yes, I've thought about it. Even started messing with it a few times.
It never amounted to much (lack of time, interest, etc...) We've used
fck with a number of projects (perl/asp) but none were slash-related.
But the fck editor works quite well, and it's free as in beer :)
(and/or a user pref) so that it could be used in text areas with
submissions, comment posts and even the story admin - though on the
story admin you'd need 2 instances of fck (one for the intro, the
other for the body).
It really shouldn't take you much to make this work I'd think. Edit
the Slash::Submit plugin's displayForm;submit;default, modify the
<textarea wrap="virtual" rows="[% user.textarea_rows ||
constants.textarea_rows %]" cols="[% user.textarea_cols ||
constants.textarea_cols %]" name="story">[% form.story |
w/ the FCK calls and then see how it goes.
