Text Editor

After upgrading to ver 2.3.4.1 I am unable to get the TinyMCE editor to work, I have no access in any browsers the "Paste to Plain Text" editor and the "Paste to Word" over writes any h1 h2 h3 headers setting I have to use html code to correct any text which means I may as well just edit in code.

I have reloaded the full version twice with no change, any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

I am using Win7 , MSSQL with ver 2.3.4.1

Thanks

Re: Text Editor

Hi Len,

I see what you mean, the paste functionality seems pretty broken in the latest version 3.3.2 of TinyMCE. If you upgraded from a previous version of mojoPortal then you should still have the older version 3.2.7 of TinyMCE on disk and you can change to use that version by changing:

<add key="TinyMCE:BasePath" value="~/ClientScript/tiny_mce332/" />

to

<add key="TinyMCE:BasePath" value="~/ClientScript/tiny_mce327/" />

If this is a new installation and you don't have the previous TinyMCE on disk, you can download mojoPortal version 2.3.3.9 from Codeplex and copy the /ClientScript/tiny_mce327 folder into your current installation.

Hope it helps,

Joe

Re: Text Editor

Hi Joe,

Thanks for the prompt response, luckily the /tiny_mce327 folder was not removed/overwritten on upgrade so the change in the web.config was only necessary and all working fine now.

This leaves me with another question, after doing an upgrade how can I find folders that have been removed without going through each one?

Cheers

Re: Text Editor

Hi Len,

The short answer is you can't, it could only be done by manual inspection. It does not happen very often that we remove files like .aspx or .ascx, but it is fairly common under the /ClientScript folder that we will get new versions of editors and we don't delete any files during upgrades.

Best,

Joe

Re: Text Editor

Hi Joe,

Updated to latest version 2.3.4.5 this weekend and notices that the TinyMCE 337 editor does not work when using the paste as plain text. Checked using the mojoPortal Demo site and is it also not work there.

Cheers

Re: Text Editor

Hi Len,

That is strange, there was a bug in TinyMCE paste as text when using Chrome that made me previously revert to 3.2.7, if those files are still on disk you can switch back to it from config. However, version 3.3.7 actually fixed it which is why I upgraded to 3.3.7. I guess it is possible that browser updates have broken it again.

Please indicate what browser(s) you are having this issue with?

They recently released TinyMCE 3.3.8, maybe that will fix it, I will see about upgrading.

My favorite editor at the moment is CKeditor though it has a few quirks as well.

Best,

Joe

Re: Text Editor

Hi Joe,

Have tested 3.3.7 with Chrome, Firefox IE 8 & Apple Safari all have the same response when trying to use the plain text function.

I have reverted back to 3.2.7 for now, will give CKeditor a go and see how that works.

Thanks as always

Hello.

I need to add new text editor to mojoportal. How is it possible? I have downloaded RTEditor. Can I add it to mojoportal ? Or is there some editor in which i can change text font,size and color.

Re: Text Editor

Hi Martin,

Please see the FAQ for information on why the Font toolbars aren't included in the editors.

If you want to add a different editor, you'll have to look at how the current editors are configured with the EditorProvider.

HTH,
Joe D.

Re: Text Editor

Hi Martin,

I don't recommend you to add a different editor to mojoPortal. If it's absolute necessary (customer request perhaps) using font toolbars see the link: http://www.mojoportal.com/customizing-the-editor-toolbars.aspx

By tinyMCE for example you can change FullWithTemplatesToolbarRow3Buttons as followed:

FullWithTemplatesToolbarRow3Buttons="template,separator,formatselect,fontselect,fontsizeselect,
forecolor,backcolor,separator,fullscreen,spellchecker"

 

Hope it helps,
Erhan
