    Insert module is a nice, simple way
  • 0:09
    for us to insert our in-line images on our site.
  • 0:14
    But we are missing one of the big advantages we wanted,
  • 0:17
    which was using media browser
  • 0:19
    so we have this unified experience.
  • 0:22
    And it also would be kind of nice to give people some additional tools
  • 0:26
    to manipulate the text in that body area.
  • 0:30
    Things like being able to bold or do italics
  • 0:33
    without needing to know HTML tags.

WYSIWYG and the Media Browser Plugin


Insert module provides a simple, clean way to get out images in-line, but we are not taking advantage of the fact that we have the Media browser for a unified experience. In order to get the Media browser in the picture for in-line images, and provide a really cohesive editing experience, we're going to give our users a WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) toolbar, and add our browser to that toolbar. We'll be using the WYSIWYG module, along with the external CKeditor library.

Note: This series is covering Media Module version 1.x. To learn about Media Module 2.x, check out our Using Drupal Chapter 4: Media Management series.
