Attachment upload from Wysiwyg / TinyMCE editor fails with 404.

The plugin does not register an upload handler:

ERROR: (404) Invalid REST invocation - /WysiwygPlugin/upload does not refer to a known handler

Crawford. Your checkin deleted the upload handler without providing an alternative:

    Item12705: open a can of worms, and worms will escape. Spacing in verbatim fixed, and a lot of confusion about character sets (not mine, thankfully) refactored out. There's still an issue with the TMLhtml class causing random roundtrip tests to fail, but i think it's a problem with the tests, foremost. There is one expected-to-fail test that covers it.

It's a deeper issue than at first appears.

Done, though upload doesn;t seem to save any data. Need to look again.

I've "cleaned" and have tried to get wysiwyg working here, and notice several problems.
  1. It's back to using the bin/rest/WysiwygPlugin/upload It lost the change I made to use bin/upload
  2. It does a GET to run the upload, rather than a POST
  3. Also check_manifest found a bunch of files in git that are not in the MANIFEST file.

  1. All can say is "no it isn't"
  2. Erm. No, it doesn't! Try clearing the browser cache.
  3. We don't ship .uncompressed.js, do we?
