  • I am running Revo v2.3.5 with TinyMCE v4.3.4. The problem I have is, when I visit a page (resource) in my admin panel the content area is not editable. When I try and click in this area the cursor does not stick. Its not clickable.

    I cannot put my cursor in the content area (HTML enabled or not) to add content. Toogle editor checked or not. Under settings I do have TinyMCE set as the editor. For the few pages where my rich text is unchecked, I can edit these few pages.

    This was working fine, and I did not make any changes that I am aware of so I don't know why it would all of a sudden give issue. Any ideas?

    • Since it was working before, you might try manually deleting all files in the core/cache directory.

      You may also have added or updated an extra that's causing a JavaScript conflict (NewsPublisher might do it).

      If you're stuck, you might consider removing your TinyMCE extra, upgrading MODX to the current version, and installing TinyMCEWrapper.

      In any case, you should upgrade MODX. There have been several important security fixes since your version. Upgrade to 2.4.0, 2.5.0, then the current version to make sure you get all the DB changes. The UpgradeMODX extra would make that easier.

      • Bobray,

        Thank you again for your logical explanation. In the end I felt my site was outdated by maybe a half a year but I was mistaken it was much longer at around 2 1/2 years or so. Boy was I mistaken smiley I felt the best course of action was time to update.

        The update to the latest version fixed the issue. What must have happened is, I likely updated my TinyMce plugin as the updates came in, but was still using the older platform version. So I think the plugin was newer than the platform which I suspect caused the issue.

        Again, appreciate your excellent help.

        • I'm glad you got it sorted. In theory, you shouldn't have seen the TinyMCE updates if they were for newer versions, but in practice, updated extras aren't always tested with older versions, so the minimum version doesn't get set. Another reason for staying up to date. wink
