TinyMCE editor in Internet Explorer 9

Post by Liborius » Thu Sep 16, 2010 11:47 am

Has anyone else experienced editor problems in IE9? Just installed IE9, went to update site, can't type into the editor window! Only way was to toggle to html view. Tried in Firefox, worked fine. Uninstalled IE9, working fine again in IE8.

There are some quirks with IE9. I installed the beta and was looking at my 1.6 installation and was having problems with a lot of JavaScript based stuff. I think I tried to edit an item on a live 1.5 site, and TinyMCE had some JavaScript issues too. Some of these issues are core code, others third party plugins. Since the beta was just released, some groups are just now seeing IE9 and working on compatability, and there may be some bugs in IE9 that are causing these problems since IIRC they went with a new JavaScript renderer. Give it some time and we'll start to see compatability for IE9, FF4, and the other new browsers filter into Joomla.

Doing some further research (I was hoping to get IE9 into a useable state with Joomla at least locally), I came across a thread on TinyMCE's forum. Sounds as though the reasons that the editor isn't working is related to changes in the browser, and they reported bugs to Microsoft's team.

Fair enough - thanks for following up. Just have to wait for the bugs to be ironed out then! I hope they do - IE9 has some (potentially) very interesting functionality...

same problem here. using Firefox helps to keep editing until we get used to Firefox or Microsoft fixes the problem with IE9, whichever occurs first.

Interestingly while I was trying to replicate this using IE10 it throws the following error.
*****/plugins/editors/tinymce/jscripts/tiny_mce/tiny_mce.js - line 1 parentElement not supported.
Work to be done, obviously.

This is not really a Joomla issue. It is an IE -Moxycode issue as it relates to TinyMCE. I doubt that Joomla will want to try and fix that.
The editor JCK works fine with IE9 and IE10. Try it.

JCK is not really free and never had problem with TinyMCE.

Joomla team should update the TinyMCE in joomla v1.5 i now download the TinyMCE 3.4.2 and renamed the folder tiny_mce in "joomla_v1.5/plugins/editors/tinymce/jscripts" to tiny_mce1 and uploaded the tiny_mce folder from TinyMCE 3.4.2 zip file and all bugs are now gone.

Good fix Outlander. It is a core file hack but one which may well follow in a future update in any case.

Version 3.4.6 stable is free in accordance with GPLv2, and is a damn good editor at that. You don't have to take the Pro version.

Just wanted to post a thanks to Outbreaker for the fix. Clearing my browser cache and then reloading the page with the new TinyMCE 3.4.2 totally fixed the problems.

Looks like if in IE9 you go to Tools | Compatiblity View Settings and change the setting to display all websites in compatibilty the problems of the editors goes away.

Probably would work as you are now viewing it as IE8. Can't see the point of a modern browser that requires castrated to work with half the Web.

I updated the plugins/editors/tinymce/jscripts/tiny_mce folder to v 3.4.2 - but in the Global Config page is still shows it is Editor - TinyMCE 2.0, as it also does in the plugin area.

Should it now read 3.4.2?

thanks
Geoff

Only use the newest TinyMCE v3.3.x.x don't use the newest v3.4.x.x this is not working in all browser for that the Joomla team nneds to updated the TinyMCE plugin.

I don't get it way they don't fix this in Joomla 1.5 most people dont want to use joomla 1.6 or 1.7 becases most of the Extensions don't work on it.

What problems do you have?
Be sure you have used the TinyMCE Main packages (3.3.x) NOT THE TinyMCE Main packages (3.4.x).

I have used the TinyMCE main packages 3.3x. When I use IE to edit an image all of the images go missing but it works in other browsers? I uploaded the new tiny_mce folder which was in the jscripts folder as this is where to upload?
