TinyMCE Link Editor Not Working

Postby Compositeur » Mon Jun 19, 2017 7:50 pm

This is a long-standing problem. When I select text in an article to turn it into a hyper-link to something, the TinyMCE link editor throws up the link editor window which appears as shown, and none of its functions do anything when you click on them. The only thing that does work is the 'close window' button.

Am using Firefox 54.0 browser which is otherwise very stable. :'(

Could this be a java issue? :geek:

My first couple of things to try would be to:
-Reinstall TinyMCE (Go to the TinyMCE and get the install package and install it as you would another extension)
-Change your administrator template temporarily to see if that makes a difference. If it does then reinstall the admin template
Never seen this before, just thinking what I'd do if I had this issue.

From the look of the image attached, it looks like the editor is not TinyMCE. It looks more like JCE.

imanickam is right :-[ it is JCE and not TinyMCE

I have managed to fix this problem :-) by taking andypooz's advice. I completely uninstalled the JCE extension and then installed JCEPro.

All's well.

Thanks guys!
