<![CDATA[Need help CKEditor with media link problem]]> I have a problem since i past modx from 2.5.8 to 2.6.5 and updated the CKEdtitor from 1.1.0 to 1.4.0
since the update, i'm unable to add media to the WYSIWYG. the problem is in the dev tool of Chrome that all images in the CKEditor is they point to /manager/assets/images/...... etc but the all media are in the /assets/images/.....

Images sent before the MODX update works normally.. but new images put after the update don't works.

<![CDATA[Which rich text editor to use?]]> Is there a guide somewhere with the best (aka. relevant to most projects) extras? I'm trying to figure out which text editor to install (among other things), but am completely lost (and a bit discouraged by a thread I read the other day that mentioned that the top suggestion (TinyMCE 4.3.4-pl) wasn't any good (or something along those lines - I can't find the thread again)).]]> Wed, 11 Jul 2018 11:36:43 +0000 <![CDATA[CKEditor WYSIWYG Editor for MODX Revolution - Support Thread]]> Wed, 25 Apr 2018 11:50:33 +0000 <![CDATA[Which TinyMCE to Use?]]>
TinyMCE 4.3.4-pl | Author: theboxer
TinyMCE Rich Text Editor 1.2.0-pl | Author: romain
TinymceWrapper 2.3.2-pl | Author: donshakespeare
TinymceWrapperDIY 1.0.0-pl | Author: donshakespeare

So which one to use?

Talk about confusing.

Anyone know or can recommend which is the best to use?

Thanks?]]> Mon, 25 Dec 2017 09:39:17 +0000

I guess that I can't use it until also the plugin modximage is updated, right?

Do you know any workaround?

<![CDATA[I need a FULL-FEATURED editor, not a dumbed-down one.]]>

  1. Ability to select classes when inserting images. TinyMCE 4.3.4 lets me do this right from the image insert dialog box, PLUS I can type in more than one class.
  2. Ability to select classes when inserting links, and also allow adding/editing mouse events (onclick, onmouseover, etc.), and provide a way to enter more than one class. TinyMCE 4.3.4's link dialog box has a ton of options like this.
  3. Templates feature so I can easily pop a predesigned setup of elements into the content area.
  4. Easily link to my own style sheet, in regular CSS format, to use for a popup to select classes while editing.
  5. Be able to apply classes to individual cells in tables.
  6. Be able to apply custom margins, padding, font size, letter spacing, etc. to any element like I can now with TinyMCE 4.3.4's Edit CSS Style tool.
  7. Be able to edit image maps using a plugin.
  8. Easily create zoom images with a plugin (create scaled-down version in the text, linked to large version in popup like Fancybox or other). I'm currently using PlugoBrowser for this, but it's not compatible with newer versions of TinyMCE.
  9. Be able to assign IDs as well as classes to elements.

Is there a newer editor plugin that can do all these things?]]> Thu, 15 Jun 2017 03:02:22 +0000
<![CDATA[ACE Update?]]> Wed, 17 May 2017 06:16:39 +0000 <![CDATA[TinyMCEWrapper, elFinder, AjaxManager Zombie Mayhem]]>
Decided to try TinyMCEWrapper. Seemed good but elFinder Uploads resulted in a Permission Denied. Checked permissions. Tried on a Production and Localhost - no change. Started research into removing elFinder but got a bit stuck. Gave up for a while.

Complication - AjaxManager
In parallel I've been trying to improve Manager performance. Currently at about 8 seconds to change resources on Firefox and maybe 6 on Chrome. Finally found AjaxManager (been pondering this issue for years). This seemed ropey with frequent lockups but when it works got resource changes down to 2-3 seconds and without the horribly clunky white screen. Read a forum post suggesting removing AjaxManager is really risky. - quite old admittedly. I'm puzzled by this System Setting AjaxManager.compatible_namespaces - added TinyMCEWrapper but do I really need to add every Package? Got 25 on my Production system but only 3 on my localhost.
And then I noticed that the TinyMCEWrapper RTEs had disappeared. Although a F5 while viewing a Resource provides the RTEs - until I change resource and they disappear.

Decided to Toggle the RTE settings. In System Settings filtered for Editor and started changing use_editor - Yes to No and also which_editor and which_element_editor which were both TinyMCEWrapper. Oddly the options for the latter two were None, TinyMCEWrapper, TinyMCEWapper. Almost as though there were two installations of TinyMCEWrapper.

On Opening the Manager Media top menu there were two elFinder File Browser menu entries. Returned to System Settings and the use-editor No was back to a Yes. And any changes to the other related settings were also reset. Changed some other unrelated Settings just to ensure Settings in general were working - yes, only the Editor related ones were zombiefied. Kept coming back from the dead.

Tried the now many elFinders. Mostly they work but saw this but only once.
Warning: session_start(): Session callback expects true/false return value in /home/.../core/model/modx/modx.class.php on line 2286
Often elFinder won't appear. But I think this is due to AjaxManager. I've found that you get a tiny Loading popup a lot with AjaxManager but by simply visiting an unrelated Resource it jolts it into to life. But not always... F5 usually does the trick but defeats the point.

TinyMCEWrapper elFinder Upload Permission Problem. Completely unrelated to AjaxManager - been nursing this for a week.
AjaxManager is causing lots of Loading issues and MAY have caused the next problem.
Changing TinyMCEWrapper related System Settings use_editor,which_editor and which_element_editor - don't stick.
Both which_editors have TWO options for TinyMCEWrapper. Should be one obviously.
Changes of use_editor and MAYBE the others results in multiple elFinder menu entries. I had 9 at one point.
RTEs are missing in action until a F5 reloads everything - they disappear on a Resource change.
Empty of Core/Cache/system_settings removes the extra elFinder menu links. But they come back when those System Settings are altered.
Extras - Installer menu now leading to an empty main area of the manager (main menu and resource tree visible). Almost certainly an AjaxManager issue. Again, when "Loading" a F5 gets me to the Packages page.

On my localhost I managed to install CKEditor and uninstall TinyMCEWrapper and after core/cache clearing I've got a nearly working system - if only I'm brave enough to kill AjaxManager... Yes - just did that, you have to click Restore option for some reason. As stated I didn't do the AjaxManager.compatible_namespaces bit. Partly as the Installation Instructions are missing from and also because typing in 25 or so is just dumb.

Probably best to get rid of them both. Permanently. Head shots for zombies??? Which is a shame as my Managers are soooo clunky without Ajax. And TinyMCEWrapper seemed to have uses although it could do with better docs.

Help with elFinder Upload failure.
Help with AjaxManager - does it work if I type in 25 packages in the Setting?
Possible bugs in TinyMCEWrapper regarding zombie settings and elFinder multiplying.
Suggest better docs for TinyMCEWrapper. Complicated thing.

Tested on two websites.
MODx 2.5.6 and 2.5.2. Production host and localhost respectively. Firefox and Chrome. PHP7 and PHP5.5.11 (localhost)]]> Fri, 14 Apr 2017 01:41:47 +0000
