I'm still a newbie, just six months into Moodle, and some of it really vexes me.
Take the TinyMCE editor, for example. Here is the demo link from the TinyMCE site http://www.tinymce.com/tryit/full.php .
Click on the media button in the demo and a full set of additional media types are available, including Shockwave (.dcr), something I am using in almost all my lessons. Select that media option and a drag and drop box is available for it, just like that. Right now, I have to hand code it all in html, including cab files, and there is no easy way to flow text around the Shockwave media.
I have tried reading the instructions in Moodle and in TinyMCE that seem to suggest I can add these other buttons and elements, but I'll be darned if I can figure out how. Here are two links, one from Moodle and one from TinyMCE that talk about this: http://docs.moodle.org/dev/TinyMCE_plugins and http://www.tinymce.com/wiki.php/Plugin:media
Can someone give me a hand with this? I'm sure it would help other newbies as well. Thanks in advance for any help.
