Hi There:

     I have some html editor fields in the resume form. The problem is that when someone forgets to to fill in a mandatory field (any of them), after to try to save it and shows the error message, the text into these html editor fields change to plane text and it shows the html tags as well. For example if you wrote 'sergio' , then you will see this: <b>sergio</b>.

    Did anyone have this problem and could solve it?

Thanks in Advance, Sergio.

Yes, I have this problem. What's worse is that these tags get saved as htmlspecialchars and hence, display as is on the view resume page. They are using FCK Editor which is recommended if we have to manage files on the server.

TinyMCE would be better and much easier to implement/use. TinyMCE is the defacto standard.

Alternately, they could offer an option to switch the HTML editor in the configuration at runtime. That would be even better.

TinyMCE is client side app - no need of any PHP code unless you are using its compressor to compress its files over the network to save bandwidth. Just include the javascript files and it renders text area inputs in an editor. It cannot allow us to access files on the server or upload files to the server.

FCK Editor is server side app - involving PHP coding and allows us to access files on the server if configured.

Both editors have issues but TinyMCE is easy to implement. After having tried several editors including commercial ones, Monster recently switched to TinyMCE.

Jamit should use either TinyMCE or the latest version of FCKEditor which is CKEditor.

Hopefully, that will mitigate these problems.

Sure, a new version of the FCK editor will be included soon.

The FCK Editor that we use was modified so that it uses PHP to initialize the configuration file. The difference to TinyMCE is just a matter of perception and opinion - akin to preferring red apples rather than green apples. Both are easy to integrate and half the features offered by these editors are not needed in Jamit.

Sergio, I will ensure that this bug will be fixed in the next version and I'm closing this thread for now.
