After upgrading the wysiwyg and tiny plugin in the configure, my editor doen't appear anymore. I saw now that on the help page of Tiny you say installing via config from 4.2.0 but nothing is written on what to do for previous versions.

New version of plugins as of today, used IE7. Never had such problems before with the Tiny editor (upgraded from version 20 march)

Can you help me, what possibily could be wrong. Can I fix this?

I just tested the latest uploads with 4.1.2 and it all works perfectly.

The only thing that changed recently in the Tiny MCE plugin is the way the editor finds the textareas it is to camp on. it does this by looking for a textarea with one of the CSS styles = twikiTextarea= (for 4.2.0) or twikiEditboxStyleProportional. If your edit textarea doesn't have either of these styles (e.g. because you are using an odd skin) then it may look like the plugin isn't working. 4.1.2 Pattern skin had the twikiEditboxStyleProportional style on the textarea by default.

Another possiblity is you have the plugin configured not to edit pages that contain calls, or you have disabled the plugin in that web/topic (or some other constraint)

Setting no action as I'm confident the plugin works with 4.1.2

I reopened it because I cannot find anything.

I attached the html source as I can see in IE7, and in this file you can see the twikiEditboxStyleProportinal style.

I checked twiki settings and deleted everything that is on tiny

It is on every page on every web

Can you see something strange on the html thanks,

-- TWiki:Main.FrederikBeun - 29 May 2008

No, the HTML looks fine. Check your javascript console for errors (after making sure that javascript is enabled in the browser).

Lowering this to normal. This bug is about Wysiwyg compatibility with older TWikis. It may trigger a later plugin update but should not block 4.2.1.

I also have the same problem in TWiki 4.1.1.The only error i can see in the error console in Firefox 3 is this:

Warning: Unknown property 'text-overflow'. Declaration dropped. Source File: http://mywiki.lan/pub/TWiki/PatternSkin/style.css Line: 613

-- TWiki:Main.IanClancy - 02 Jul 2008

On reviewing again I note that on Frederik's example page that the editor is set up using editor_selector:twikiTextarea. The editor_selector is used to specify the CSS class name of the text areas to camp on (see http://wiki.moxiecode.com/index.php/TinyMCE:Configuration/editor_selector). Since the textarea in Frederik's HTML does not have this class, the editor doesn't know it's supposed to sit on that textarea.

This is probably the result of modifying TinyMCEPlugin locally. To fix this problem, manually add the twikiEditboxStyleProportional to the editor_selector option defined in TinyMCEPlugin, as described in the TinyMCE configuration help.

Chances are that Ian is encountering the same problem.

-- CrawfordCurrie - 03 Jul 2008

Yes, this appears to have partially fixed the problem for me. When i create new topics with the Create New Topic link on the left hand side of the screen TinyMCE is used. Also when i edit these new topics, TinyMCE is also used. However, when i edit an existing topic (created before TinyMCE install) the old editor is used ?

-- TWiki:Main.IanClancy - 08 Jul 2008

This problem appears on fresh installation of TWiki 4.1.2 and TinyMCE installed using configure, so it is not due to local modifications.

Please add information about this bug to installation page, I have spent a lot of time today trying to figure out why TinyMCE is not appearing and I suspect a lot of users will have the same problem.

The fix with setting editor_selector to twikiEditboxStyleProportional works. For users which do not know how to do it: edit TWiki/TinyMCEPlugin page and change editor_selector setting in "Set INIT" line.

I cannot see this is waiting for feedback.

Seems to me to be a doc fix that is required for Wysiwyg for those that upgrade the plugins for an older TWiki.

-- TWiki:Main.KennethLavrsen - 26 Jul 2008

I am closing this old item, seems to be fixed now.
