thumbnail webp in file manager

Hi Ray

When I upload a webp format image, the thumbnail isn't displayed in the file manager. I can't see which file I might need to alter to add the webp extension.

Secondly, when I insert an image in a page, the self closing /> is added at the end. W3C validation now produces a warning about this. Is it possible to code it so that it just puts > at the end of the code? (similarly with <br /> should be <br> )

Many thanks

Chris

Can you create a blank page with this on it:
<?php
phpinfo();
?>

And see if your php has webp support in the section labeled 'gd'?

If it doesn't, then you would have to talk to your hosting provider to get a php version with webp support in the GD library. It has to be compiled in when php is installed, so it isn't easy to add yourself.

If you give me FTP access and a url where I can play with the editor to see the <br /> and <image /> tags being added, then I can take a look and correct it in the code. I'm not sure the cause or best solution without looking at what you have. I may be able to update the ckeditor version, or I may be able to change a configuration setting. Worst case scenario I may have to go into the source code and fix it manually.

Hi Ray

Many thanks. yes, gd support for webP files is enabled.

My mistake - it is the <hr /> tag not <br />

Many thanks

I was able to update your ckeditor/config.js file to address this issue. I added:

CKEDITOR.on( 'instanceReady', function( ev ) {
// Ends self-closing tags the HTML4 way, like <br>.
ev.editor.dataProcessor.writer.selfClosingEnd = '>';
});



You may need to clear your cache before the change takes effect.

Hi Ray

Any thoughts on the .webp thumbnails in the file manager?

You appear to be using the kcfinder for your file manager. That is old and may not support webp.... I can help you implement a newer filemanager in a premier support ticket that might fix this problem. I'd probably need to do it in a premier support ticket.

Hi Ray

But that's the file manager that comes with DataAssist - I have the latest version installed. Am I missing something in the setup, or does the extension only support kcfinder?

Cheers

I haven't updated it in DataAssist, but I've started using a different version:

Thanks Ray

I could be interested - but have a couple of questions;
will this be in the next WA update, or wlil you be using CK Editor 5, which gas been available for some time?
When might the next update happen?

Cheers
