This worked for me:


from: FrankZoid on August 25, 2005, 04:55:38 AM
I believe the code that is missing is

Code: Select all

<?php if ( $my->id ) initEditor(); ?>


Put the above code in the header of the index.php of your template!
Hope it helps You

Have a look at your page source and see that tinymce.js is being linked to properly. it should look something like this :

Code: Select all

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.yoursite.com/mambots/editors/tinymce/jscripts/tiny_mce/tiny_mce.js"></script>


The "http://www.yoursite.com" part is defined by $mosConfig_live_site, so this has to be set properly, or you must access the site from this same url. If this file cannot be loaded, neither can tinymce.

Yeah, don't use tiny_mce_gzip.php yet. I don't think its 100% stable, and cause some issues with IE. Change that to tiny_mce.js.

Yes unfortunately I have discovered that this is probably true.

The imminent 1.0.1 Will correct this and simply load tinymce.js instead.
Maybe have the use of tiny_mce_gzip.php as a param option, with js loading as default.


Anyway, now that we load the editor only on actually need, instead of on every page, we are already seeing performance benefits.

I think this thread leaves people in limbo guys.

What needs to be done?
What needs to be altered.

You are both right but the issue isn't resolved  :-\

Do we find the tinymce.js and ftp that or go downwload mos_ce from http://www.cellardoor.za.net or some other editor?

My browser locks up and have to use the back arrow to get out or shut down.

tinymce.js does exist in the mambots/editors/tinymce/jscripts/tiny_mce/ folder.

So, you need to edit tinymce.php in mambots/editors/ and change

Code: Select all

<script type="text/javascript" src="$mosConfig_live_site/mambots/editors/tinymce/jscripts/tiny_mce/tiny_mce_gzip.php"></script>


on line 145 to

Code: Select all

<script type="text/javascript" src="$mosConfig_live_site/mambots/editors/tinymce/jscripts/tiny_mce/tiny_mce.js"></script>

Try this
Go to the mambot manager select Tiny and set the mode to `advanced` mode.

Well the switching between simlple and advanced has been there for awhile.
There used to be a default and this is causing the problem.

I will take this into account in the 1.0.1 release

>:( noopa
Still don't work for me... tried everything I found…
Same problem with joomla 1.0.2
It works on one server:
http://varberg.winstart.com/template/index.php
without any problem
but not on the other server:
http://www.winstart.com/template/index.php

so now I have to backup and restore MySQL to get around…. :'(.....

I think it has to do with server path.

By the installation it is:
/var/www/html/template
this work for most of my scripts

and when I telnet as root:
/home/virtual/admin3/var/www/html/template


other interesting thing, when I go to Content Item: Edit some item
I can NOT save or apply and do not see any tools (icon bar). When I change in Global configuration to
No WYSIWYG I am able to save again…

:-* some developer like to check it on my test site? advice?

Log-in as administrator with the same address to the registered live site (default doesn't include "www")
i.e: if your web address is http://www.yoursite.com
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Edit configuration.php and find:

$mosConfig_live_site = 'http://yoursite.com/';

change to:

$mosConfig_live_site = 'http://www.yoursite.com/';
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

8) Thanks for the suggestion, have tried that one in 100 combinations. It just works on my laptop with Internet Explorer! have tried other computer without success. The server is apache 2 on fedora. On my other server with freebsd everything is OK. Can it have something with permission? For tinyMCE witch permissions are essential?

The problem is in the new version(s). Copy te tinyMCE files from version 1.0.0 in your current Joomla and the problem is solved. At least, that did the trick for me. :)

Well I moved to the server where it works  ;)
but wery strange it was, working on just IE on my laptop...
Now everything works on the other server.

If someone have problem with styles in tinyMCE the best solution that works for me in joomla 1.0.2
was to install mosCE
http://www.cellardoor.za.net/mosce/comp ... /Itemid,1/
(1 zip for manbot and 1 for component)

and then go to component mosCE admin and Override Template CSS set to now, can take some minutes becaus of cash...

my problem is gone and Joomla is great...

Error...
TinyMCE is undefined.

I solved it.

Basically you have to disable the "No Editor" option from the Mambots > Site Mambots.

I still see this problem and nothing in this thread so far has fixed it.

I am doing localhost.
I've tried taking the variable out and using tiny_mce.js.
I've done a complete reinstall.
I've tried using firefox.

None of these things seem to help.  tinymce being undefined seems like a straight foreward problem to fix but nothing seems to correct the problem.

There's also the matter of the 'expected "right parens"' error that pops up before the 'tinymce is undefined' error.

Quite frustrating.

As near as I can tell, this makes the whole system unusable.  I don't see how this could have made it past QA.

First error (on every edit screen)

line: 5610
Char: 77
Error: Expected 'close paren'
Code: 0
URL: http://localhost/joomla/administrator/i ... 0&task=new

Second error (on every edit screen)

Line: 12
Char: 2
Error: 'tinyMCE' is undefined
Code: 0
URL - http://localhost/joomla/administrator/i ... 0&task=new

Obviously the URL varies depending on what page you're trying to edit...but the error is always the same.

$mosConfig_live_site = 'http://localhost/joomla'

// Tiny Compressed mode
if ( $compressed ) {
$load = '';
} else {
$load = '';
}

Joomla version 1.0.11

Last thing tried was to load a new version of tinymce.  changes the line number but the errors are the same.  Bummer.

I am looking for a solution to this also.

I have a site that works Joomla perfectly well for me, but the clients does not get WYSIWYG editing menu and also get the 'TinyMCE is not defined' error at the bottom left of IE window.

I have done more work and realise that it seems to have something to do with their internal network. All clients systems run IE6 on XP Professional. If they connect to the internet via an standard ISP they can edit away, perfectly happily, with everything normal. BUT if they connect via their internal network, or from my office into their VPN, they get the errors.

I need to find a solution, as they currently have a site they cannot edit unless they are at home (or off-site at least).

Anyone any ideas?  ???
