New Builds of HTML Editor 3 and CSS Form Builder

To address the issues Brian discovered, we have new builds of Form Builder 2 and HTML Editor 3 that fix both. Please participate in this short beta, if possible.

-------------------------------
Builds you will need:
-------------------------------
Download Form Builder 020 beta build
Form Builder serial #: h9GBO-38XhE-0yCWC-kFzOo
Download HTML Editor 015 beta build
HTML Editor 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.
-------------------------------
Next:
-------------------------------
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.

Any other tests you want to run are more than welcome. Thank you for any/all feedback you can provide.

Thanks Anna... I won't have access to test until early tomorrow AM. I will give it a run again and report back.

Please let us know. A few of the bugs you reported seem to be specific to the presets you had saved. We were never actually able to reproduce the problem, but we think we found what needed to be fixed based on the detailed bug report you provided. Thanks for the help.

I have created exactly the same form twice (Web Development Form changing both text area's to be a html editor within the wizard), the first time using the new version of CSS Form Builder which can be seen here http://www.i-cre8.com/blog/tutorials/webassist/css-form-builder/

I then installed the new html 3 editor and went through the same process again and noticed some anomalies:

  1. The preview when changing a text area to a html editor in the wizard does not update to show the html editor place holder graphic as before
  2. The main preview does not display the html editor grphics either
  3. when viewing the page live only the first text area is turned into a html editor Firebug reports uncaught exception: [CKEDITOR.editor] The instance "Additional_Details" already exists.



You can see this page here http://www.i-cre8.com/blog/tutorials/webassist/html-editor-3/

Inserting just a single html editor worked fine in both cases

I'm not seeing the firefox error and both fields seem to have html editors? Did you make a change to correct that issue? What version of firefox are you using? What OS?

Odd... I opened the page again and now I see the error. I have it open in two windows and only get the error in one of them.

It seems to have something to do with using the same form element name for both. I'll look into it further... thanks for the bug report.

No worries, the forms were created with your standard presets

I ran all the tests again with the new betas. I only found one minor bug on this go round and it's not really a bug as much as an inconsistency.

When I installed just the new beta of Form Builder, everything worked perfect.

When I added HTML Editor 3 and then did the simple contact form, when I switched the textarea to an instance of HTML Editor 3, the preview area simply did not show a holder for HTML Editor (it did previously when just the new Form Builder beta was installed). Instead, it still just shows a textarea box.

So, not really a big deal - but an inconsistency. The extensions however worked in accord with each other.

If you want to view any results, they are here:

test1.php

test2.php

test3.php

test4.php

Now on to some more intricate testing.

Best regards,

Brian
