HTML Editor 3 and CSS Form Builder Compatibility Beta Testing

I sent you all an email on the coming release of HTML Editor 3. Our only effort remaining involves ensuring it can run side by side with CSS Form Builder.

Builds you will need:
Download Form Builder 2 build
(If you currently own Form Builder 2, the current build in your download center will NOT work in parallel. You will need to install this beta build.)
Form Builder 2 serial #: h9GBO-38XhE-0yCWC-kFzOo
Download HTML Editor 3 build
HTML Editor 3 serial #: hXaPQ-ynhUn-0yESK-fIVLX

Test I would like you to run:
If you have Form Builder 1.x or 2.0.0 installed, uninstall.
Install Form Builder build referenced above.
Use the wizard to create a form and add a HTML Editor form field.
Then on a separate page, add a stand-alone HTML Editor form field, not using the Form Builder wizard, but the HTML Editor access points.
Install HTML Editor 3 build referenced above.
Use the Form Builder wizard to create a form and add a HTML Editor form field.
Then on a separate page, add a stand-alone HTML Editor form field, not using the Form Builder wizard, but the HTML Editor access points.


For reference, the new features included in this release are:
- HTML Editor has been updated to use the most recent CKEditor release and includes a more customizable skin and toolbar options.
- Apply as many style sheets to the HTML Editor instance so your customer sees their content exactly as it would appear on your site. You can also customize the entries listed in the Styles menu of the toolbar.
- Enhance your file upload fields with the standalone File Manager feature and provide your users with file upload and image editing capabilities without an HTML Editor instance.
- The File Manager has been updated to provide an improved user experience, including quick access buttons for crop, resize, rotate and delete.


Thank you for any/all feedback you can provide quickly. It is much appreciated!

Hi Anna,

I went through the steps as requested and here's what I found.

On the first step, I used the "Simple Contact Form" template and decided I would change the text area in Form Builder to an HTML Editor.

I noticed that when doing this, Form Builder could not create the previews correctly and would give this error:

The end result, though, did work on the page as it should and can be seen here: formBuilder2.php.

On step 2, I was able to create the standalone HTML editor with no problems whatsoever.

That test can be viewed here: htmlEditor.php

With step 3, I had a couple of issues. Just like I did with the first test, I decided I would use the same "Simple Contact Form" template.

Right away, I got this error:

This appeared to be a minor error, because after pressing "OK" twice, it did finally allow me to continue going through the dialog and create the form as I had done before in step 1.

But when I loaded the files, I got an error on the page. Something is "undefined" and causing the error. I don't know exactly what is causing the bug yet, but am poking around.

You can see the result of that page here: formBuilderHTML3.php

If you look in the top left corner, you will see "undefined."

In step 4, the standalone HTML Editor looked and seemed to work great.

You can see that page here: htmlEditor3.php

I will continue to develop and give it some real test work on some actual production stuff I have and will let you know what else I can dig up.

I am really excited about the move to CKEditor and the enhancement of the file management tools.

Warmest regards,
