PowerCMS with HTML Editor - Tutorial

I posted this in the PowerCMS section, as well; but I wanted to let anyone who was looking for help with upgrading PowerCMS with the new HTML editor, I have created a tutorial on how to do this right here covering modification for both the insert and update pages, as well as, the minor addition needed to the advanced file manager to work correctly with SecurityAssist:

Update page not working

Hi, I followed your instructions, however my update page is missing the 'HTML Editor' toolbar ?? I am using the Default manager preset. I have uploaded all files in the HTMLEditor folder.
Insert page is okay, but update pages is not.

Did you try deleting the cache and doing a hard refresh of your browser? FCKeditor's tool bar does get cached so it could be an issue with your editor loading from cache.

Best regards,

Still no joy!

Hi Brian, I did that, but it still is absent! The small arrow to toggle is there but no editor at all.
It is like it is 'hidden'.
If it helps, this is my code

$WARichTextEditor_1 = CreateRichTextEditor ("ContentValue", "../HTMLEditor/", "713px", "400px", "Default", "../custom/contents_update_ContentValue1.js", "".($totalRows_HistoryUpdate > 0)?$row_HistoryUpdate['HistoryValue']:($row_WADAContents['ContentValue']) ."");
?>

In your code for your instance... change "Default" to "Custom" so the editor knows to use the custom JS that is specified after it. If you have it set to default, it doesn't pull the JS correctly.

Let me know what happens when you look at it in dreamweaver and reload.

Regards,

Brian

Custom doesnt exist

Did as you said. Re-loaded and I got a pop-up saying Toolbar 'custom' doesnt exist!!

That's strange... can you look in your folder "/HTMLeditor/custom/" and confirm that "contents_update_ContentValue1.js" exists? If it does, I am not sure why it would tell you that.

You may need to reopen in the HTMLEditor dialogue to see if something is wacky. I have, on occasion, experienced an issue where some of the customization I did disappeared.

v wacky

Well that file exists. I re-opened the editor and changed toolbar to Basic - this worked - I got a toolbar. Problem is I wanted more than a basic toolbar. Any change I make in the HTML Editor fails - all except for selecting a 'basic' toolbar. I tried basic then added an option - goes back to 'Custom doesnt exist'. I have tried several senarious - the only time I get some joy is when I choose 'boring little Basic !!!!

There is something wacky going on there... let's try this... let me give you my js code to paste into that js file and give this a run... I created a js so that I could update the PowerCMS even before I deploy it so it would be exactly the same as the old PowerCMS toolbar but with the new HTML editor.

Open the file, "contents_update_ContentValue1.js", then get rid of everything in there and paste this to use instead:

// Custom configuration for iRite
FCKConfig.XMLFullName = '(custom)';
FCKConfig.XMLFileName = '(custom)';
FCKConfig.SkinPath = FCKConfig.BasePath + 'skins/silver/'; // relative to fckeditor/editor/fckeditor.html
FCKConfig.DocType = '<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">';

FCKConfig.AutoDetectLanguage = true;
FCKConfig.DefaultLanguage = 'default';

FCKConfig.StartupFocus = false;
FCKConfig.FullPage = false;

FCKConfig.BaseHref = '';
FCKConfig.DefaultLinkTarget = '_self';

FCKConfig.ToolbarSets["Custom"] = [ ['Source','DocProps','-','Save','NewPage','Preview','-','Templates'], ['Cut','Copy','Paste','PasteText','PasteWord','-','Print','SpellCheck'], ['Undo','Redo','-','Find','Replace','-','SelectAll','RemoveFormat'], ['Form','Checkbox','Radio','TextField','Textarea','Select','Button','ImageButton','HiddenField'], ['Image','Flash','Table','Rule','Smiley','SpecialChar','PageBreak'], '/', ['Bold','Italic','Underline','StrikeThrough','-','Subscript','Superscript'], ['OrderedList','UnorderedList','-','Outdent','Indent'], ['JustifyLeft','JustifyCenter','JustifyRight','JustifyFull'], ['Link','Unlink','Anchor'], '/', ['FontFormat','FontName','FontSize'], ['TextColor','BGColor'], ['FitWindow','-','About']]; /* Toolbar end */

FCKConfig.ForceStrongEm = false;
FCKConfig.FormatIndentator = ' ';
FCKConfig.EnterMode = 'p';
FCKConfig.FillEmptyBlocks = false;
FCKConfig.FormatOutput = false;
FCKConfig.FormatSource = false;
FCKConfig.IncludeGreekEntities = false;
FCKConfig.IncludeLatinEntities = false;
FCKConfig.ProcessHTMLEntities = false;
FCKConfig.ProcessNumericEntities = false;
FCKConfig.AdditionalNumericEntities = '';
FCKConfig.ForcePasteAsPlainText = false;
FCKConfig.CleanWordKeepsStructure = false;


FCKConfig.EditorAreaCSS = ''; // relative to fckeditor/editor/fckeditor.html
FCKConfig.BodyClass = '';
FCKConfig.StylesXmlPath = ''; // relative to fckeditor/editor/fckeditor.html
FCKConfig.ManagerEnabled = true;
if (true) {FCKConfig.Plugins.Add('kfm');}
