 Paste in rich text editor with FF

Tomas NielsenPost date: 2007-02-24 12:35

I am using the HTMLArea editor and lately also the Tiny variant. But this problem should be the same also with FCK and others.

When you want to paste text into an editor (such as the one here on the forum) Fire Fox alerts you with an error and suggests that you should tweak a .js file to get paste to work.

I hardly see how one should get hundreds of users, maybe thousands to do a hack like that.

Is there any way to get around this? Internet Explorer gives you a warning but lets you proceed with the paste operation.

I have researched a bit now and it seems the last version of FCK Editor does not have the paste problem in Fire Fox!

So now we're running FCK editor here in the forum!

It seems to behave better with the prototype framework too.

FCK in really nice but my favorite at the moment is tinyMCE ( ) I don't know if it it's better than FCK (have you compared the two?) but its really easy to implement and configure and comes with a lot of plugins.

I remember the days when we wrote our own editor implementations... (can't say I miss the maintenance :)

We have used Tiny for a customer project. It seems to do the job. I was not that involved in the implementation other than writing the specs for the assignment.

I wanted to test the FCK one also. What I do dislike about it is that you hard-code the toolbar in a .js file. But then you could of course put it into Domino and have it dynamic. But I would rather not tamper with the editor files if I can avoid it.

I agree the editor we came up ourselves with was good at the time but there was always some kind of memory leak in IE or other troubles. I do not want to go back to that.

Funny thing I just realize. The spell checker of FCK wants to change FCK into FUCK.
