I am one of the people who supported the integration of WYSIWYG (CKE) very much, as there are a lot of users expecting this as a functionality.

Same time I force my users (in projects I take care of) to use WikiSyntax and I refuse to switch on WYSIWYG (CKE), as it causes weird HTML and I just do not like it's instability.

You should setup an alternate test instance with a copy of your database and try, if it would work well with WikiSyntax only and WYSIWYG switched of completely.

One of our coders (Robert Plummer from USA) is developing a new parser for nearly 100% compatible Tiki style WikiSyntax (including WikiPlugins) and is quite far in the development.

He uses medium.js for WYSIWYG - so I distinguish between WYSIWYG (CKE) and WYSIWYG (medium). The integration is a bit slowed down, as some funding would be needed. But I see this very promising and as I test it frequently I am very hopefule that we finally get a quite stable solid alternative to WYSIWYG (CKE) which I maybe could allow my users.

I expect to see it in kind of a production ready beta mode about Tiki15 ... .

Anyway: try to stick with WikiSyntax on all technical or design pages, wher you would anyway avoid letting users to edit ... you can aswell setup a slideshow on a WikiSyntax based page and include it to a WYSIWYG based page with the plugin {include ...}

I found that slideshow works only with wiki syntax. I like WYSIWYG but had to disable it because of this functionality.
Thank you for your response.
