CK Editor: Unable to properly display stored data on page

CK Editor: Unable to properly display stored data on page


I have created a page whose intent is to allow a Presenter who has submitted a bio and etc. to peruse a trial LIVE view of their intended output. It presents them with what the End User will see, in case the Presenter wishes to make any further editorial changes once they have viewed the page on iPad, phone, or whatever.

My difficulty is that the CK editor output is currently raw HTML, being the output comming directly from the relevant field in the MySQL database.

How do I get the CK editor to unscramble the input text so it appears as it should.
I am hoping you can provide me with the necessary information?

I have tried figuring out which CK editor PHP config lines to insert, but so far nothing has worked. I also tried a Google query, before troubling you, but got nothing useful.

Thank you,

The recordset has built in Cross Site Scripting protection that prevents html and script from running from the database. To override that you just have to change your display code from:



$Recordset->getColumnVal("column", false);

Adding the additional 'false" argument will tell it to bypass the protection and allow html and script to be displayed from the database column.
