I'll let the vid ask the full question, but I've just read Jean's post that has raised the issue along similar lines …

It's there, just takes a bit of time to load, methinks.

It's also a WMV, so if you aren't using windoze, then you probably need a plugin.

Another case of incompatibility … somewhere!

Take my advice. I'm not using it!

Hi Fletch,

You have some template files overridden. Any Javascript file is quite dangerous ground to override as code is likely to get changed, often even between patch releases.

JAVASCRIPT_EDITING contains most of the WYSIWYG editing logic.

JAVASCRIPT also has an impact.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

I have NO idea what caused the issue I highlighted in the vid.
  • Checked and, where relevant, suppressed (deleted) overrides. That didn't help (caches cleared using ocP and browser tools), because the edit pane stubbornly remained the same.
  • Used OcCLE to activate and disable editarea - just in case (I still have a problem with my FF editarea so it remains disabled).
  • Ran ocP tools again, this time using all 'Optimisers' and 'De-cachers', regardless of whether they appeared to impact on the editor or not.

Something obviously worked, because I now have a 'spiffy' editor that even supports my custom post templates.

Happy turkey (sorry, Bernard - that's a bit parochial, so ask if you want to know)!

You know Fletch, I'm still unable to see any video on your post with my Firefox browser…Here is what I see!


However, with IE, it is there in all its glory.

Good vid, by the way!:thumbs:
I got some of those also the first time I've tested mine.
I'm investigating a freezing of the editor after disabling and converting to COMCODE

I hesitate (OH, the temerity of it!) to ask. but have you got the IE plugin installed on your FF?

Not that it does anything for a WMV - that I am aware of (heheheheheheh)!!

Good game, this. HUH?

Thanks for asking the right question, my friend! That did it!

I find it somehow difficult to believe that I've never had to install the Media Player plugin in all the years of using FF and not even knowing I needed it, or missing it for that matter. :lol:

Jean,
I also seen Fletch's first post as you did in Firefox.

The best thing for me is add a Firefox plug named Adblock Plus link here
This will show you a block image like the following



The reason is this is because ocPortal uses flash for media embedding and this plug gives you an option to block flash files but the good thing for us is it shows us where flash files are.

You just have to hover your mouse on the block text and right click (if Windows OS) then you can download the media file play in Winedoze media player or if your really "high speed low drag" you can convert the file and enjoy in whatever player you wish.

In winedoz IE the flash .wmv works correctly as you seen.

This is one of the reason I wanted to know the location of the files that handle the media player.

Stick around me fella, and you're going to become a really well-rounded themer/developer.

I'm full of dumb questions, but sometimes they hit the bulls-eye!

Indeed, Violative I have this "adblock" installed and it showed that "block" and I first thought that it did block the video, but it was not so.

Thanks for the tips! I now learned 2 important things, just by reading your posts guys.
