Did you 1) turn on the RTE option in the document settings, 2) check that USe Editor is selected in the site settings, 3) make sure it is installed - I think that only TinyMCE is packaged with the install.
well i checked the "Rich text?" option in document settings. In tools->configuration->Interface & Features i have "Enable Editor" set to Yes.
I also tried installing other versions of the TinyMCE editor with same succes.
Also tried modx-0.9.6 and it didnt work out of the box either
Check in the plug-ins management section in the manager and see if the corresponding plug-ins are installed.
well seems to be some server side setting, since the editor worked when i tried installing the XAMPP apache/mysql/php package instead of apache2triad.
Any idea what it could have been ?
Well, thanks for the help anyway
