Html editor

Hi everyone I am having a problem with the html editor it doesnt seem to work correctly, for once you have text you hit enter on the WYSIWYG you expect a space between the lines of text however it displays in the WYSIWYG but not actually on the page and the only way around this at the moment is keep going into the source code, but my client is going to be technical enough to keep doing this? Is there a solution to this problem?

Hi tony,

Something to try:

You can have HTMLEditor use either <p> or <br> when you press 'enter'. Click the first 'customise' button on the HTMLEditor 'Quick Insert' UI. Select the formatting tab, and check the 'Use <br> for return' checkbox.

Hi Neil,

Thanks for the reply, by the way the main.dwt.php template worked the other day thanks :).

Now how do I find the custom button the html editor? I cant seem to see one? Is it in the WYSIWYG editor or am I looking in the wrong area?

Hi Neil,

Just to let you know i went into the fckconfig.js file and changed the line that said this:

[ CTRL + ALT + 13 /*ENTER*/, 'FitWindow' ],


To this:

[ CTRL + ALT + 13 /*ENTER*/, 'Nbsp' ],


Seems to be working ok now!! Thanks for your help once again!!!

Hi Tony,

Sorry you're still having problems.

With regard to the spacing issue, it seems that the way things are initially set up with HTMLEditor, to get a line between paragraphs you need to hold down 'Shift' and press Enter twice. This is while HTMLEditor is set up (default) to inset <p> tags when just Enter is pressed.

If you change it so that HTMLEditor inserts <br> tags when you press Enter, you would just hit Enter twice to get the space between lines. This seems a little more intuitive to me, so it's how I set mine up.

The way I changed mine was to alter a line in each of the javascript files in the HTMLEditor/custom folder:

in each of the javascript files in your HTMLEditor/custom folder, find the line:

FCKConfig.EnterMode = 'p';

and change it to:

FCKConfig.EnterMode = 'br';

Then upload those files to your live site. I had to close the browser tab and clear my browser cache to see the change.

[There does seem to be an option in the fckconfig.js file for setting this - at or near lines 122-123, but changing those made no difference for me].

You may just want to make this change to the CMS insert and update javascript files, - these are:

contents_insert_ContentValue1.js
contents_update_ContentValue1.js


The line to change is at or near line 34.

There may be a more 'correct' way of doing this, hopefully a WA person will let us know if there is. So back-up any files you may change!
