Hi all,
several users of my website are complaining that the textarea for creating a forum post is disabled.
after checking this, I can confirm it has the 'readonly' attribute. I think this might be related to a bug with the WYSIWYG editor, which is disabled by default, and asks whether you want to keep it disabled when you click to enable it (which it never does).
any ideas?
thanks

That sounds like some kind of Javascript error during the loading of ckeditor, but I couldn't speculate without seeing the exact URL where this is happening and analysing what comes up in the JS console.

That error had your URL in it so I tried myself on the new topic screen, and the editor seemed to load (I'm on Google Chrome).

Is it only on certain browsers, or maybe editing a certain post, or only when making posts? Or only if logged in?

Very strange. I just tried toggling the WYSIWYG, and it worked correctly both enabled, and disabled, and it did enable correctly.

I'd check the Chrome developer tools Network tab, to see if some file(s) aren't loading.

I tried with Firefox 3.6.25 and when I first visited with NoScript running I had to enable both the site and Cloudflare domains in NS for the wysiwyg to show up however when closing and re-opening the page (domains still permitted) I could no longer get the actual editor to show up even though I could technically disable and enable it. There seems to be a JS bug somewhere. I noticed some side JS button up on the right that says FAVIS. I am wondering if you removed/disabled that if it would fix the issue. maybe there is a conflict?

Identical findings to Duck, except I am using Chrome.

Also came to a similar conclusion about 'FAVIS', but haven't pursued it.


Take my advice. I'm not using it!

Works for me in Firefox.

I'd expect to see the above dialog in this situation, it does confirm the WYSIWYG is enabled but failing to load.

I tried to reply to this, but found my WYSIWYG is also 'broken'. Since I never use it, I've not actually noticed it before.

Will start looking closely at mine now, and perhaps one of us will get to the solution and post it …

bummer

Take my advice. I'm not using it!

as I said before, the only errors (which would include any 404s or 500s) are in the adverts at the top of the page.
