little help?


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.

I agree...

I have not been able to get this to work at all.

I think the best you're going to do is here: http://www.htmlarea.com/htmlarea_2/documentation.html



After all, this is free software. Plenty of lurkers in this forum, but not many people willing to help.

I've read the documentation and "installed" HTML Area, however, I get no toolbar on the textarea.

HERE's What I have now....

<head>
<script language="Javascript1.2"><!-- // load htmlarea
_editor_url = "/editor/"; // URL to htmlarea files
var win_ie_ver = parseFloat(navigator.appVersion.split("MSIE")[1]);
if (navigator.userAgent.indexOf('Mac') >= 0) { win_ie_ver = 0; }
if (navigator.userAgent.indexOf('Windows CE') >= 0) { win_ie_ver = 0; }
if (navigator.userAgent.indexOf('Opera') >= 0) { win_ie_ver = 0; }
if (win_ie_ver >= 5.5) {
document.write('<scr' + 'ipt src="' +_editor_url+ 'editor.js"');
document.write(' language="Javascript1.2"></scr' + 'ipt>');
} else { document.write('<scr'+'ipt>function editor_generate() { return false; }</scr'+'ipt>'); }
// -->
</script>


</head>

.......................

<form etc.....>

<textarea name="Symptom" style="height: 110px; width: 500px;"></textarea>

<script language="JavaScript1.2" defer>
editor_generate('Symptom');
</script>

</form>



What I get is a regular textarea, no toolbar, no nothing.

Re: [dspent] little help? [In reply to] Can't Post

In my admittedly limited experience, I'd look at 2 areas first:

1. Am I running IE 5.5 or greater on a Windows machine? It won't run on IE for Mac.

2. I'd play around with the editor URL. Is editor.js in the /editor directory or is it in an htmlarea directory underneath /editor/ . For instance, the url to mine is _editor_url = "../CMS/htmlarea/"; You also might want to try an absolute URL rather than a relative one: http:domain.com/editor/

I'm far from an expert on this, but I hope it helps a little. And I hope all the people reading these posts and not replying will help out a little!

got it....

deleted everything, downloaded a fresh copy, installed it in its own directory located inside the directory with the pages that call the editor....so

_editor_url = "editor/";

put the generate code directly after the textarea..

<textarea name="Symptom" style="height: 110px; width: 650px;"></textarea>
<script language="javascript1.2">
editor_generate('Symptom');
</script>

and it works....

Thanks for pointing in the right direction.
