The cut off box DILEMA ?

In power CMS I have set up a small site

and when you go to edit the content

you get this short box that doesn't extend

the length of the page which makes it

very awkward to edit anything.


How can this be addressed ?


Look at my screen shot

see how the scroll bar doesn't extend the length of the page?

giving a small area to edit in. It's rediculously small

There is a button on the editor itself to expand to full screen down by the ? button. I did also find a webpage for editing the fckeditor config files...tells you how to add/remove buttons from your editor...I think I read somewhere in there about a auto full screen display..I may be wrong though. Here is the link Toolbar

I just checked..it is on there. In the 'On start behavior' area, also this page will say ck editor, it's the same thing as fck editor. They just renamed the editor due to the fck references.

if you click on the button that expands the editor you get sweet fanny adams on a mac in fact you get more than a blank screen it's really buggy.

The way I solved the problem was clicking on the view scource button twice. That solved the problem for me

That name,,,I know . The editor itself was named after its original developer (Frederico Knabben). After years of people complaining about the very close resemblance to a certain word they have finally decided to chage it to ckeditor on the newest release. It is the editor that most cms systems use as their core.
