HTML Editor Site Settings Connection - database doesnt display

Hi there, I have started a new website project that requires HTML Editor for its backend system. Come across a slight issue with it. To demonstrate please take a look at the attached screenshot...where the Connection drop down is..my database isnt displaying....I even clicked on Define button and selected my database but after clicking the Done button the Connection still displays "None" so not sure that the cause could be. What could possible causes be so that I can debug the issue.

Actually I discovered that if I define a NEW database connection inside the HTML Editor: Site settings interface and select "MySQL Connection" (rather than Dynamic MySQLi Connection) then I can successfully select my database and continue to use HTML Editor...so the problem im having is caused because when I first created my backend system I initially created my database connection using the option Dynamic MySQLi Connection" - so is this a bug of the extension? As I want to keep all my code the same so want to use MySQLi connection...Perhaps HTML Editor hasnt been updated to use MySQLi connections?

".Perhaps HTML Editor hasnt been updated to use MySQLi connections?"

Yes, that is the case.

At this point only eCart has been updated to support MySQLi, none of the other extensions have been updated.

We are working on upgrades to the other extensions to support MySQLi, obviously, that work has been put on hold for the time being with the issues around DW CC 2014.1 taking priority.

Hi Jason, thank you, I assume its perfectly fine to create a secondary db connection (mysql) that I can then use with CKEDITOR since its really only used for security on KFM right.

In addition, as this is my first project using the new MySQLi extensions - Am I right in thinking to creae a login system that I dont need need to use Secuirty Assist -> Manage Site Access -> Access Rules Manager ....instead I woul duse MySQLi -> User Authentication -> MySQLIi Log In User and then if I want to restrict access depending on UserLevel I would need to hand code a CASE/SWITCH statement directly on each page. As I noticed that the server behaviour for MySQLi Restrict Access to Page doesnt have the option to chose from a list of Access Level?

The DataBase is not used for security, Security Assist is used for security in the File Manager.

The database connection is used so the file manager can store file information that it needs to work. and yes, you can create a secondary connection for that.


If you want user level access, you should continue using Security Assist, the MySQLi behavior does not have support for a user level access system
