Block inside a block
Which brings me to a second question in my next posting...
Although you're not able to use "the block" to insert an image.
Needs a bit of work and isn't very comfortable to insert a new zoom image, but it would work.
Although it has nothing to do with "block inside block"
It would also be great if you could define set of styles that the WYSIWYG editor pulls from your theme directory and that you can apply to a selected object!
that's the reason why a "standard theme" has two css files. just put your style classes in typography.css..
I dont know if I explain my idea. By the way, excuse my english (Im spanish)
short answer: it won't work
long answer: you can extend the area class to do some dynamic layout stuff but that's going to be ugly and not easy too. you might even be able to create a real "block container", but that's even more complicated...
if the real challenge is "how do we give complete web noobs a WYSIWYG site designer?" I'd say that photoshop does an acceptable job of spitting out code through what used to be image ready, dreamweaver works, and the "drag and drop to design a website" problem is bigger than I want to solve.. at least this year. ;)
I used Remo's older block version of Expander with customized form block, here are details: http://www.concrete5.org/index.php?cID=42071...
