How to Install a WYSIWYG text editor in Drupal 7

In Drupal 7, we can install WYSIWYG editors in various ways.

The most flexible method is using WYSIWYG API with CKEditor or TinyMCE. I'm using WYSIWYG API+TinyMCE on minitsg.com (D7) and CKEditor on myanmarlanguage.org (D6)
The following procedure is for Drupal 7 and the screenshot is from MinITSG server.

  1. Download WYSIWYG module http://drupal.org/project/wysiwyg
  2. Download TinyMCE 3.4.2 http://tinymce.moxiecode.com/download/
  3. Upload all to server as shown in the following screenshot
  4. Location of TinyMCE and WYSIWYG modules
  5. Go to Administer » Site configuration » Content Authoring » Wysiwyg Profiles, (/admin/config/content/wysiwyg) and follow the on-screen installation instructions that are displayed there.
  6. Create Wysiwyg profiles, and steup input for Full HTML, Filtered HTML and other profiles as you want.
  7. Assign Text Formats at Administer » Site configuration » Content Authoring » Text formats (/admin/config/content/formats) for Full HTML, Filtered HTML and assign to user roles.
  8. Done :)

Hope this help someone getting trouble with WYSIWYG text editor installation in Drupal 7.
