The code you sent is correct and should work.

There are 3 possibilities why WYSIWYG is not working on your website:

  1. You are importing wysiwyg incorrectly on your page
  2. There are some errors in the console that block code execution and therefore WYSIWYG is not initialized.
  3. Wysiwyg is added dynamically and requires manual init

So we need information on how you add WYSIWYG on your page? Do you have any errors in the console? Do you use any framework, e.g. ASP.NET or React?

You are importing wysiwyg incorrectly on your page - Code is correct (as you mentioned.) Import:

    <!-- MDB -->

<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.7.0.min.js" integrity="sha256-2Pmvv0kuTBOenSvLm6bvfBSSHrUJ+3A7x6P5Ebd07/g=" crossorigin="anonymous"></script>

<link rel="stylesheet" href="../../MDB5_STANDARD_UI_KIT_Pro/css/mdb.min.css" />

<link rel="stylesheet" href="../../MDB5_STANDARD_UI_KIT_Pro/plugins/css/all.min.css" />

Code

 <script type="text/javascript" src="../../MDB5_STANDARD_UI_KIT_Pro/js/mdb.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="../../MDB5_STANDARD_UI_KIT_Pro/plugins/js/all.min.js"></script>

There are some errors in the console that block code execution and therefore WYSIWYG is not initialized. - There are no errors.

Wysiwyg is added dynamically and requires manual init - How to do manual init. There is no description of the manual init in documentation.

Try this code:

const wysiwygElement = document.querySelector('.wysiwyg');
const wysiwygInstance = WYSIWYG.getInstance(wysiwygElement); 
if (!wysiwygInstance) { 
  new WYSIWYG(wysiwygElement);
}

Thank you very much!

I am trying to use a basic example of MDBootstrap WYSIWYG Editor. Source page: https://mdbootstrap.com/docs/standard/plugins/wysiwyg-editor/

<div class="wysiwyg" data-mdb-wysiwyg-init>
        Test
</div>

I can see "Test" , but it doesn't work as a plugin that enables rich text editing on our website.

Unfortunately, again the code was converted to text. Create a snippet or if you paste code here, mark it as code so the editor doesn't convert it to text. Just select the pasted fragment and use the keyboard shortcut ctrl + k

Unfortunately, your code is not formatted and I am not sure if this is the entire code you wanted to send us.

Can you create a snippet with an example and describe what exactly doesn't work?
