    I'm newbie using the jotform and would like to know if is it possible to use the text editor for content management.

    The reason why I'm asking is that I develop websites for people who are not comfortable with htm or other programming language.

    Instead of updating their site, I would just set up the text editor and they would be comofortable editing the content of their site.

    Please let me know if is possible and how. If this article has been already publised and answered, kindly provide the url.

    Thanks and best regards 

    Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays

    Hi Jones,

    I'm just another Jotform user. But I think the answer is that Jotform is simply using an open-source HTML editor. I think they are using TinyMCE, but I personally prefer CKEditor. Just do a google search on either and you'll find the websites and download links quickly.

    Perhaps an even better answer is "develop your client sites on Wordpress or Google Sites or Joomla" - all include HTML editors and much more.

    Hello Jones,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    Byron is completely right, we are using TinyMCE WYSIWYG editor, and you can integrate it too. However, as advised above, it might be much more easier and efficient to use some CMS like Wordpress, Joomla, Drupal, etc.

    Please note that JotForm is not designed for site content management, but for easy form building purposes.

    If you need any other assistance, please let us know. We will be happy to help you!
