HTML Editor adding doc type and style sheet links?

HTML Editor adding doc type and style sheet links?

Not sure that I have ever seen HTML editor do this before, but it is adding a doctype and the stylesheet links to the code I have within it. Is it possible to turn this off? I am only hoping to use it as a simple WYSIWYG editor and I don't want all of that other stuff added, the pages the database info is pulled from will have all of that already. :)

thanks.

In fact every time that I update the form it adds all of this again:

php:
<p>
    &lt;\!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd"&gt;</p>

    <div class="dropRightImage">



More than a bit annoying. :) Any ideas as to how to stop this from happening, AND how to make that the default for future sites that I create?

Inside here?

I believe that there is an error in this part of the code:

php:
$CKEditor_config["docType"] = "<\!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC \"-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN\" \"http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd\">";



As if I remove the doctype info and leave "" then it doesn't load it into the database each time (the stylesheet info either.)

php:
$CKEditor_config["docType"] = "";



Something to do with not escaping a quote properly?

this seams to be a bug on adding the doctype to the HTML Editor instance.

the issue is c aused by the forward slash before the !:

php:
$CKEditor_config["docType"] = "<\!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC \"-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN\" \"http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd\">";



should be:

php:
$CKEditor_config["docType"] = "<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC \"-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN\" \"http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd\">";



I have logged this in our bug base.

OK, thanks.

Now onto a related question: If I wanted to have the preview created with the header and footer from the site when the user views it, is there an easy way for me to code those into the preview?

THank you.

Also, is there any way that the known bugs stickies can be updated with these as they are found? It would help other users to have these known issues all in one area as well. Maybe with a link to the thread that has the solution, such as this one?

Thanks again!

I dont see anything in the CKEditor documentation that allows you to customize the preview.

RE Bug Stickies: I can understand where your request is coming from, but I don't think all issues should be stuck.

for example, it took me 30 minutes today to come up with the scenario that created the code you mentioned. In my experience, when a sticky is put up, every one assumes that the issue applies to them, I have seen this cause more harm than good in some cases.

There have been many instances where I have put up a sticky for an issue, and people have implemented the fix when it was not needed and ended breaking something else.


Instead of concentrating on posting sticky's for all known issues, we are trying to concentrate on releasing updates to correct them
