i am using fck html editor, and have created a page using the script below from dynamic drive.

1) i load the script inlcuding the css statements into the "source" section of the editor
2) i switch from source to wysiwyg and the end result shows as intended - (very nice tab oriented feature)
3) i save the page and then try to view it and it is blank
4) when i go to edit again almost all the code is gone?!!


Text Formatted Code
<style type="text/css">

padding: 3px 0;
margin-left: 0;
margin-bottom: 0;
margin-top: 0.1em;
font: bold 12px Verdana;

#tablist li{
list-style: none;
display: inline;
margin: 0;

#tablist li a{
padding: 3px 0.5em;
margin-left: 3px;
border: 1px solid #778;
border-bottom: none;
background: white;

#tablist li a:link, #tablist li a:visited{
color: navy;

#tablist li a.current{
background: lightyellow;

width: 400px;
/* Insert Optional Height definition here to give all the content a unified height */
padding: 5px;
border: 1px solid black;

When you use FCK or HTMLArea - you must ensure that the HTML it generates is allowed in your config.php. That being said, you must be very careful in what you allow/disallow, your site could be easily hijacked if you allow the wrong code. there is a function called striphtml that removes the html disallowed by your config.

I am experiencing a similar problem. When I paste DHTML code into a block and click on save, everything looks fine. If I then go into the same block and change anything then save again, the block will be empty.

The code seems to all be there, but I have not checked every line of code.

So I have to edit the text file to make any changes, then copy and paste the new code into the block.

All times are EST. The time is now 06:47 pm.
