Editor CSS

Got an issue where I'm loading up a style sheet in the HTML Editor (screen shot attached) but they're not coming up when editing a page in my CMS. I'm attaching the other tabs from the HTML Editor for your reference.

The end result is an editing page that loads the style sheet into the window correctly, but the pull down list for the style only consists of one style (Red Title, which isn't part of the style sheet).

Am I missing something?

On the styling tab, you need to select the styles that should be included in the list from the Available styles list.

The Available styles list is a multi select list that allows you to select which styles to include.

Still Not Working

Thanks for that response, Jason. Still having trouble with it though.

I selected the styles I want to use (all of them, screen shot attached) and am still getting the single style option (Red Title, screen shot attached). I'm also attaching a screen shot of the content_form_content_content1.js file (located in the webassist>html_editor>custom directory).

It shows the correct CSS file path for FCKConfig.EditorAreaCSS, but how does it know what styles to include?

in the custom directory an XML file will be created. this xml file is used to populate the styles list.

Make sure that the entire custom directory gets uploaded to the server.

Where HTML Editor is javascript based, the browser will sometimes cache the settings, you may need to clear you browsers cache and restart the browser for changes to take effect.

XML File?

Yeah, that's what I thought and also where I get stuck, Jason. The XML file doesn't exist. The custom directory just has the one file in it (content_form_content_content1.js). I go through all the right steps, connect the style sheet, select the styles to include, but it doesn't create an XML file.

I'm using HTML Editor via CSS Form Builder. I've tried uninstalling that Extension, reinstalling it, deleting the cache file, restarting my computer, I've had a beer and a sleep and I tried it all again. Same result ... doesn't create an XML file.

What do I need to do to get this working?

Don't Worry

Don't worry about it, Jason. It didn't work on the pre-existing form I had set up for some reason, so just as a test I made a new form, ran through the editor set up and it made an XML file like it is supposed to. Thanks for your time.

OK, glad to hear it worked on the test file.
