This is a sort of continuation to the

The thing is working nicely except for the jumping of the page when the editable area is selected and for the initial 2 clicks it takes before the hand cursor kicks in...

Now the next step, changing the picture in the contentEditable area... can this be done?

Have a look at what's done so far, here:

I'm shooting for the simplest most efficient solution, I could have used any of hundreds rich text editors out there, but it just wouldn't be the same =)

what do you mean.

where will you get the picture form?
you must have it somewhere.

the image will be on the server in images directory, so for this thing I guess we need a little pop up window to select the available images and/or upload a new one.

i can recommand you on:

you first have tio decide what you want to do.
you can simply use browse window to find the imag you want and then replace it
over the old one using :

// find the img object
//replace the src
... .src='newSource'

document.getElementById('imageId').src = 'new Source'

If it would be possible to use FCKeditor with the span rather than iframe that would do it, then I would just use it with a subset of features that's it... do you know if it's possible?

hey NetGroove what's up? you've been 3 times to my site and still no help? =)

I'm using 2 different stats packages right now, trying to decide which one to adopt and waiting for some russian ppl to get back to me with their stats package =)

this thing is gonna rock!

I've set it up so if I go to site the stat javascript isn't even called, and vice versa, the editing javascript isn't going to be there if I'm not coming to the site... once it's done, as well as the statisticks.
