CKEditor

Hi,

I'm probably just missing the obvious on this one :) but we downloaded and installed a fresh copy of the latest version (2.3.5.1) and when we set the editor to be CKEditor, and go into edit a page, the (ckeditor) toolbars are missing, and we see the HTML code instead of the formatted/wysiwyg view.

On the last go round, we used 2.3.4.8 and didn't run into any problems (on a different install/site).

Any thoughts? (All of the other editors appear to be loading okay.) [This is on a Windows 2008 Server. Previous install on Windows 2003.]

Update: If I drop the older ckeditor331 into the ClientScript folder and point the web.config file at that version instead, seems happy. ?

Thanks!

Re: CKEditor

Hi,

My guess is you did not use the Web.config file included in the package. You should always use the one that ships with mojoPortal and re-apply any customizations. Or else you have a setting in user.config that is overriding the Web.config setting for CKeditor:BasePath and pointing to a location that does not exist.

mojoPortal 2.3.5.1 for .NET 4 shipped with CKeditor 3.3.2 which is included under /ClientScript/ckeditor332/ and is correctly configured in Web.config

mojoPortal 2.3.5.1 for 3.5 .NET was updated a few days after the initial release of 2.3.5.1 because it needed a new packaging configuration in order to submit it to the web app gallery. It has CKeditor 3.4 and the Web.config it ships with correctly points to /ClientScript/ckeditor34/

So, either you have a setting in user.config that is pointing to an older version that doesn't exist on disk or you did not use the included Web.config.

Hope it helps,

Joe

Re: CKEditor

Hi Joe,

Sorry I wasn't more clear, this was the un-modified installation package for 2.3.5.1 and 3.5 .NET.

As I was double-checking on that this morning, it just dawned on me an .htaccess file is being included in the ckeditor34 folder. This particular 2008 / IIS7 server has the secure module running and the .htaccess file w/o any rules to allow full access threw it for a curve ball, it wasn't allowing access to the folder by default.

Thanks!

CKEditor hidden on mojoPortal installs on Arvixe.com

When hosted by Arvixe.com, the CKEditor is hidden on (a) automated installs from the Microsoft Web App Gallery (mojoPortal 2.3.5.5) and (b) manual installs using mojoPortal 2.3.5.8 for ASP.NET 4.0. The other editors (FCKeditor and TinyMCE) do work when selected in mojoPortal > Administration > Site Settings. (Web.config files are unedited.)

Arvixe administrators do not know how to solve this problem. I posted the problem in the Arvixe discussion forum and Arvand (administrator) suggested I post the problem here.

I will use FCKeditor but will post the solution the the problem on the Arvixe discussion forum if one is provided.

Re: CKEditor

Hi,

If you haven't already, you might try removing the .htaccess file from the ckeditor34 folder, just for grins. This seems to have solved the problem for us on one of our 2008 servers.

Take care, Becki

Remove CKEditor ".htaccess" file

If the file ClientScript > ckeditor342 > .htaccess (in mojoPortal 2.3.5.8) is deleted then the CKEditor becomes visible. This also works for the folder ckeditor341 (in mojoPortal 2.3.5.5).

When mojoPortal is next updated the problem will probably return as the file .htaccess will be reinstalled.

Re: CKEditor

Hi All,

I will remove this file for the coming release and I've added a note in our project tracker to remind me to do the same whenever upgrading to new versions of CKeditor.

Thanks,

Joe

Re: CKEditor

For info - I have just encountered this exact problem on Arvixe hosting using mojoPortal 2.3.7.0.  I do not have this problem on other Windows Server 2008 servers.   The problem was cured by deleting the .htaccess file from the .ckeditor362 folder.

Re: CKEditor

Oops! I have a reminder so I don't forget to remove that file when I upgrade CKeditor but I guess I forgot it anyway.

Sorry about that, I'm removing it form my copy now.

Best,

Joe
