Mozex Installation
MindRaider 2 TWiki integration is based on Mozilla/Firefox plugin called Mozex. So we will start with Mozex installation...
  1. Download Mozex from

Configuring Mozex
If you are Mozilla user, configuration should be straightforward:
  • Simply choose Edit/Preferences/mozex from menu.
  • Then edit text areas editor to point to the MindRaider startup script like:
      C:\MyPrograms\mindraider.bat -t %t
    or if you are Linux hacker:
      /opt/soft/mindraider/bin/ -t %t

     Important:  Since there is some bug in Mozex, path to the editor cann't contain space (like C:\Program files\mindraider\bin\mindraider.bat). So if your MindRaider is installed in such directory, you may use auxiliary trigger like this - mindraider.bat and to store it e.g. in C:\MyPrograms\mindraider.bat.
  • Finally click OK

If you prefer surfing with Firefox, then configuration of the Mozex is a little bit tricky. After the installation of Mozex (version 0.8), copy the following link to the location bar:   chrome://mozex/content/mozexPrefDialog.xul

This is work around used to acquire Mozex configuration dialog. Now you can edit text areas editor as described above for Mozilla browser.
