Formatting changes

Formatting changes

Every time we go into the iRite editor to change some content, it changes the formatting from what was originally created to a default.

Edit:

I upgraded from iRite to HTML Editor 3.02 hoping to fix the error mentioned above. Now, when I go into a page to edit the content and hit UPDATE, it wipes it out. The page is blank.

Any ideas?

I dont quite follow what you mean by this, can you send screen shots to illustrate the problem.


A blank screen means that a php error is occurring, add the following code at line 1 to turn error reporting on:

php:
<?php

error_reporting
(E_ALL);
ini_set('display_errors','on');
?>

What I meant is, if I have a page that is just text and I format it with bolds and colors and save it from within iRite, the live page looks fine. If I then go back into the iRite Update page, the formatting is all gone although the content is there.

So what I did was I bought and updated the admin page with HTML Editor 302. Re-uploaded the page and the Webassist folder (I did follow the instructions about removing the iRite extension first). When I went to the results page the content is there but as soon as I went into the Update page, the content disappeared from there as well as the live page.

I put the code you gave on the Results page and here is the error:
Warning: session_start() [function.session-start]: Cannot send session cache limiter - headers already sent (output started at /home/moret608/public_html/admin/AboutUs_Results.php:5) in /home/moret608/public_html/WADbSearch/HelperPHP.php on line 11

I wasn't sure if you wanted it on the UPDATE page as well, so I put it there but it returned nothing.

Thanks

EDIT:
Jason, I remade the pages and they are working. I was implementing it incorrectly. Once the update page was made, I selected the record and then inserted the Editor and it picked up all the information properly.

The problem still exists with the formatting changes. If I make visual changes to the page, bolds, colors etc., it saves it fine the first time. But if I go back in to edit the same page again, all the visual formatting I made is gone and the text is just black with a default font.

Thoughts about that?

Thanks

There is formatting code on the initial value of the HTMLEditor instance that is converting double quotes (") to the html entity "& quote;"


edit the html editor instance, click the lightning bolt next to initial value and reselect the Description column from the recordset, this will remove the formatting code.
