Javascript Error

The htmlArea 2 & 3 editors have been discontinued.

We've made these forums available as a read-only reference and knowledge-base for people using or developing editors based on htmlArea 2 or 3.

Anyone who is interested in taking over version 2 or 3 is free to do so. All we ask is that you choose a new name that doesn't have "htmlarea" in it to avoid confusion with this site. We'll even give you a link in the directory to make it easier for people to find you. If you are developing or hosting an htmlArea based-editor under a new name, please submit it to our directory.

Javascript Error Can't Post


I've been playing around with this for some time now and just can't seem to get it to work. I'm not sure if it's because I am using fValidate to validade some of the fields in my form. I just keep getting the error 'Object doesn't support this property or method'.

Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

Here is my page code:

Re: [1skydive] Javascript Error [In reply to] Can't Post

Start by telling it where its files are:

<script language="Javascript1.2">
<!-- // load htmlarea
_editor_url = Blush""; Blush // URL to htmlarea files

you need to tell it the URL of your htmlarea files. Then see if it still doesn't work.
