Paragraph Tags

guys
I am having problems with the HTML Editor.
Specifically it is inserting <p> and </p> tags on saving to mysql database!
I have tried every setting available but nothing works. Every save automatically inserts paragraph tags.
Can you help?
regards
Andy

edit the HTML Editor instance.

Click the customize button next to HTML Editor Preset menu.

On the Formatting tab, check the option to Use <br> for return.

thanks Jason
Originally I had done that but no joy.
For anyone having the same problem. Uninstall the extension. Delete the HTMLEditor folder. Recreate the site cache and reinstall. After doing so the problem is now resolved.

Some times the original settings can be a bit sticky, If you find that is the case, try deleting your browsers cache, that will usually resolve the problem fairly quickly without having to uninstall the extension.

Initial Paragraph Tags

I'm using HTML Editor 3.0. There are initial <p> and </p> tags that are appearing regardless if I view the editor source code, remove them, then update my page. Upon the initial update, the tags are not stored in my mySql database, but if I have to revise some copy with the particular entry, the default <p> and </P> tags are automatically placed in the editor which means I have to view the editor source code and remove the tags before I update. Is there a way to remove them permanently? Looking at the discussion above, I don't see the option with HTML Editor 3.0. Thank you!

Look in your webassist/html_editor/xxxxxxx.js file (the xxxxx depends on your page/instance) at about line 20

change:

FCKConfig.EnterMode = 'p';

to:

FCKConfig.EnterMode = 'br';

RE: Initial Paragraph Tags

Neilo,

Thanks for your reply. That file doesn't exist in my webassist folder. I removed HTML Editor 2 and installed HTML Editor 3. The new folder structure is webassist/ckeditor. There are the following .js files but none of which is my custom editor which I called "npImpression." I was able to look at the old .js file from my previous integrations of the HTML Editor 2 and found the file you're referring to. Below is my code for the HTML Editor 3.0:

<?php
// The initial value to be displayed in the editor.
$CKEditor_initialValue = "";
$CKEditor = new CKEditor();
$CKEditor->basePath = "../webassist/ckeditor/";
$CKEditor_config = array();
$CKEditor_config["wa_preset_name"] = "npImpression";
$CKEditor_config["wa_preset_file"] = "npImpression.xml";
$CKEditor_config["width"] = "100%";
$CKEditor_config["height"] = "400px";
$CKEditor_config["skin"] = "kama";
$CKEditor_config["docType"] = "<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC \"-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN\" \"http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd\">";
$CKEditor_config["dialog_startupFocusTab"] = false;
$CKEditor_config["fullPage"] = false;
$CKEditor_config["tabSpaces"] = 4;
$CKEditor_config["toolbar"] = array(
array( 'Source'),
array( 'Bold','Italic','-','NumberedList','BulletedList','-','Link','Unlink'),
array( 'Maximize'));
$CKEditor_config["contentsLangDirection"] = "ltr";
$CKEditor_config["entities"] = false;
$CKEditor_config["pasteFromWordRemoveFontStyles"] = false;
$CKEditor_config["pasteFromWordRemoveStyles"] = false;
$CKEditor->editor("np_story_content", $CKEditor_initialValue, $CKEditor_config);
?>

Please let me know if you can assist further with this new version.

Thanks!

Hi Steven,

Yes - apologies - I was wrong.

Instead, try this: - in your webassist/ckeditor/config.js file, add a line:

/*
Copyright (c) 2003-2010, CKSource - Frederico Knabben. All rights reserved.
For licensing, see LICENSE.html or http://ckeditor.com/license
*/

CKEDITOR.editorConfig = function( config )
{
// Define changes to default configuration here. For example:
// config.language = 'fr';
// config.uiColor = '#AADC6E';

config.enterMode = CKEDITOR.ENTER_BR;
};

This should change the default 'Enter' mode to <br> rather than <p>.

(Info from CKEditor 3 JavaScript API Documentation)

Neilo,

That worked great. Thanks for your insight and the link CKEditor 3 JavaScript API documentation.

Cheers.

I have just the opposite problem. I have to do two soft returns ( 2 <br>) to get a spacer. So reading the above, I added this

/**
* @license Copyright (c) 2003-2014, CKSource - Frederico Knabben. All rights reserved.
* For licensing, see LICENSE.html or http://ckeditor.com/license
*/

CKEDITOR.editorConfig = function( config ) {
// Define changes to default configuration here. For example:
// config.language = 'fr';
// config.uiColor = '#AADC6E';
config.enterMode = CKEDITOR.ENTER_P;
};

But it didn't help.

Any other thoughts, most appreciated. This is content from database, so I also tried using the binding to set lines to "new lines to break" but that made the spacing about 4 lines.

Thanks
