  • I've encountered an issue with elfinder in NewsPublisher and elFinder where I cannot select an image from a directory. It's throwing an error about the setURL as follows:

    elfinder.min.js:9 TypeError: parent.tinymce.activeEditor.windowManager.getParams(...).setUrl is not a function

    I've been mucking about this extra doing some pretty serious customizing but I can't think I did anything that would cause an issue.

    Also, I am not seeing a way to dismiss or close the elFinder window in the view.

    • Do you have the MODX TinyMCE extra installed (or incompletely uninstalled)?

      Have you modified the npElFinderInit TPL chunk? A typo there might cause this.

      These lines in that chunk are suggestive:

      // file is the URL of of the npElFinder resource
      file: '[[++site_url]]npelfinder[[+np_html_extension]]',

      If the HTML extension is wrong it will crap things up. The code queries the modx_content_types table in the DB to get the np_html_extension. Could you look in that table and see if HTML is the first entry and if its value field matches the extension used in the sites page's? Also, if that resource is a container and containers don't have an extension, that could be the problem.

      Another thought: If it's a multi-language site, maybe the site_url tag should be uncached:

      [[!++site_url]]


      I've never tested with multiple contexts, so that by itself could cause an issue, though if it was working before, that's probably not it.

      • This is a single context site. I uninstalled and reinstalled completely. I've removed customizations and removed CSS overrides and I cannot get this to work. There are things I think are acting up: 1) there is no closure for the elFinder window/tinywindow that it's wrapped in and escape doesn't dismiss. 2) No matter what browser I check this in, it happens. In Safari the error looks like this:
        TypeError: parent.tinymce.activeEditor.windowManager.getParams().setUrl is not a function. (In 'parent.tinymce.activeEditor.windowManager.getParams().setUrl(URL)', 'parent.tinymce.activeEditor.windowManager.getParams().setUrl' is undefined)


        I confirmed the connector page and this page are not containers and have .html file extension. I confirmed the modx_content_types table contains the .html.

        I just can't figure this out.

        • I'm baffled as well. AFIK, it hasn't done this for anyone else.

          Is the MODX TinyMCE extra installed (or incompletely uninstalled)? Is TinyMCEWrapper installed?

            • @donshakespeare. This completed fixed this. Thanks so much for chiming in here.

              @bobray, I'd suggest updating the code to use 4.5 by default. Works fine and this now works properly.

              • Actually, switching to 4.5 is downgrading, thus ignoring all the minor serious fixes and lo, the latest major V of 7.
                4 keeps you afloat with, of course, the pitfall in mind.

                Anyways, problem officially fixed, see updated thread. Keep using old CDN [ed. note: donshakespeare last edited this post 1 year, 3 months ago.]

                • Jay, have you tried the original code since the latest TinyMCE update? If I'm understanding donshakespeare, Version 4.7.0 of TinyMCE fixes this issue.
