How does TinyMCE work?

Hello,
  I was looking to install a web based wysiwyg html edit on my server for my web hosting clients.  I was told TinyMCE was a great option but I am a little confused.  If I design a site for them and want them to be able to edit the page themselves do I just put the code on there for tinymce?  How do I stop anyone from editing the page?  What if they want to create new pages?

Hi Rick,

TinyMCE is a rich text editor that replaces a text area in a form. However it does not provide a mechanism to edit web pages.  To do that you need to load the source code of the page into the form. This is how Content Management Systems work. If you want to grant your clients edit priviliges you should design their sites using something like Joomla or Wordpress.
