Hello,

seems that are not so many people are working with the integrated editor?
Or anybody is using the editor not in compressed mode ..

Here are the bugs (both backend) - i am writing them in one message, because both are related to TinyMCE:

bug(1):

Description:
[USER] Writing an article with TinyMCE in COMPRESSED mode is impossible, because of 2 uninitialized vars which stops the editor in further processing, the result is, that the article is shown in plain text, without editor.
The browser (here FF 2) highlights this as javascript error (which isnt, but the result of the earlier error).

Reported on:
[USER] Joomla 1.0.11 / Joomla 1.0.12 SVN 2006.12.09

Classification:
[Q&T] Critical/High/Medium/Low/Enhancement

Affected functions:
[USER] No WYSIWYG-Editor and javascript error (FF 2)

Related files:
[USER] ../mambots/editors/tinymce/jscripts/tiny_mce/tiny_mce_gzip.php

Steps to replicate:
[USER] No URL, because testserver at home
Change parameter [ Use in compressed mode ] to YES and start again to create/edit an article

Analysis:
[Q&T] Confirmed/Unable to confirm/Rejected
Any other comments

Proposed fix(es):
[USER] ADD this 2 lines into the code:

$encodings = array();
$supportsGzip  = false;

Topic / Artifact ID:
[USER] none

System info:
[USER] J.10.11 / Apache 2.2.3 / php 5.1.6 / MySQL 5.0.24 / WinXP (aka XAMPP) // FireFox 2

***************************************************************************

bug (2):


Description:
[USER] Parameter cleanup_startup in TinyMCE settings cannot be used, the whole (exiting text will be not visible) - editor field is empty

Reported on:
[USER] J1.0.11 / 1.0.12 SVN 2006.12.09

Classification:
[Q&T] Critical/High/Medium/Low/Enhancement

Affected functions:
[USER] After enabling the parameter cleanup_startup in TiynMCEs setting to YES, the text of an existing article cannot be edited (white field inside the editor)

Related files:
[USER] ../mambots/editors/tinymce.xml

Steps to replicate:
[USER] URL: no, textsystem at home
Call the setting in the backend and set cleanup_startup to YES, start working on an existing article -> result no text

Analysis:
[Q&T] Confirmed/Unable to confirm/Rejected
Any other comments

Proposed fix(es):
[USER] disabling this setting or reworking some inside the code of TinyMCE (had a look into TinyMCEs SVN at sourgeforge, but could not find any solution there)

Topic / Artifact ID:
[USER] none

System info:
[USER] J.10.11 / Apache 2.2.3 / php 5.1.6 / MySQL 5.0.24 / WinXP (aka XAMPP) // FireFox 2

[EDIT 2006.12.10 - 16:45 GMT+1]: here is the confirmation of bug #1 at TinyMCE sourgeforge.forum: http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.ph ... tid=635684 as well as a fix is posted there ..

Mic,

I am not sure if you are aware of this but TinyMCE is its own project that is just packaged inside of Joomla!  We do not maintain it and we usually do not make bug fixes on it.  It would be better to report this to the TinyMCE maintainers if it is a bug with Tiny.  If it is a bug that comes specifically from integrating Tiny with Joomla!, we will try to look into it but because of the late report, it might not make it into the next release.

Hello,

yes i am aware (working with Joomla/Mambo) since more than 5 years ....
And i know that there will be no maintenaince for this editor by the Joomla coreteam.

All this was the reason why i postet yesterday the official bugreport (and fix) from the tinymce bugforum at sourgeforge.

Finally, it is not a bug that comes from the integrating into Joomla, the bug comes directly from the editor.
And yes, i know that this (my report here) might be late (even i cannot know why this should be late ...), but the next official release of Joomla should be published with a working editor - right?

Otherwise the name Content M... S... isnt that what it stands for ...

There actually seem to be browsers out there which don't send the HTTP_ACCEPT_ENCODING, as I've also seen reports about this bug on the web. Fixed in SVN.

As messing with TinyMCE is out of scope, I've disabled the cleanup on startup temporarily.

I came across this and this seems to be my problem.  I cannot edit articles, modules and such in the backend.  Another user posted the same problems.  I read through this and I'm totally lost.  Is there a way to fix this so it works.  Is there another editor to use within joomla.  What I don't get is I have mulitple joomla sites and it is only happening on one of them.
