I’d like to share with you a best-practice approach for setting up a secure, usable WYSIWYG editor in Drupal 7. I'll walk through all the necessary steps, and explain each layer of the Drupal content rendering system to help you get a solid grasp of what's actually going on. I'll also demonstrate several techniques for embedding images into your content using Drupal's built-in image styles, and even captions.
The session starts with stock Drupal and ends with a working WYSIWYG editor with inline image handling done in two different ways. It's definitely not a comprehensive overview, but does cover several approaches in great detail - one step at a time.
