Default Blog with FCKeditor not working in Firefox

Dear all,

I have tried running Blog in IIS, but the editor could not display properly in Firefox. I tried upgrade the FCKeditor to newer version after reading the forum in their website, but still the same thing.

It works fine in IE, but not in Firefox. What it comes out is just an empty textarea with nothing inside, and you can't type a thing into the box, and I do not see all the button or smileys around.

What is the editor used in p2p forum? It works ok in Firefox, maybe can suggest so I can try further.

Also, what should I change if I were to use with MS Access or MySQL? Thank you.

regards,
cwh

Hi cwh,

What version of FireFox are you using? There were issues with some versions. Check out this post for more ideas: http://p2p.wrox.com/topic.asp?TOPIC_...editor,firefox

The FCKeditor is supposed to work on FireFox (check out the demo at http://www.fckeditor.net/demo) so if it doesn't, let me know.

To switch to Access, check out page 181 and onwards. It describes how to do this. To switch to MySQL, you'll need to modify the code in the data access layer. The chapter gives you a number of pointers on this; what to change, how to "fork" for different providers and so on. You'll need to have some experience with targeting MySQL Server from .NET but there are many resources available on this subject.

Cheers,

Imar

I tried what you suggested in the URL given. However, after putting the FCKeditor folder, still nothing work. I even update the .NET package to the VS2005 and try running it, still cannot appear on Firefox. I am using Firefox 2.0.0.2.

I have read thru the web for the firefox help but could not find any on FCKeditor. I can see ok on the demo site, but not while running from VS 2005. Is it because the Web server is not handling it properly? Any config required?

There is no textbox, and no toolbar appear. But the website do not prompt for any errors.

Look forward to your reply. Thank you.

Can you ZIP up the entire application you're working with and then send it to me?

If you send me a message through my profile (click my name in the left bar of this thread), then I'll reply so you know my e-mail address and you can send me the zip fie.

Also, can you explain how you get to browsing that site? E.g. where you have the site located, how you open it in FireFox and in Visual Web Developer and so on? What address do you see in the address bar?

What do you mean with this:

I am not sure I understand this; the Blog is a .NET 2 application so it won't work with anything else than .NET and VS 2005.

Dear Mr. Spaanjaars,

Thank you for your help. I was able to find the solution from the web. It is due to the difference between IE and Firefox. I followed what the URL below suggested and recompile the C# code of FCKEditor .Net package, and it works!

http://sourceforge.net/forum/forum.p...orum_id=379487

The C# was written in VS 2003 but I compiled with VS 2005 with the auto-conversion, and after compiled, I replace the dll file in the bin folders and run, and it now runs in both Firefox and IE.

However, I am still trying on the image uploading and other stuff.

Thank you for replying!

regards,
cwh
