When i add a weblink in my content and click preview, the URL of the link will auto add my root folder infront. (ie. URL inserted is /pdf/test.txt, but once i click preview URL will becoming /root/pdf/test.txt. ). So when everytime i come back to the page and edit the content without editing the link and click preview, the URL of the link will become /root/root/pdf/test.txt, which is a wrong!

Ps. i realize this happen when WYSIWYG is enable

Thanks and Regards,
Peh

 This problem actually happens on many systems like this. It can be resolved quite easily by making sure that when you add a link you use the full web link convention including the http. In other words always format your links as http://www.website.com

I tried your method, but still the same.. the 1st time i insert the weblink i insert http://mysite/root/filefolder/test.txt.

but once i click preview and go modify the link again, it goes back to root/filefolder/test.txt.

Maybe I am missing something but I said to put the link in the format Website.com, your example did not include a www or a .com try it again the way that I said and it will work.

my issue now is.. ie my contents is " Here is the PDF file..  riight click HERE and download"

The "HERE" is a pdf file under my pdf folder under the root.. so i will put the link for "HERE" as /root/pdf/test.pdf
when done i click preview and the "HERE" url will become root/root/pdf/test.pdf

and when i come back and edit the content without editin the URL of "HERE" and click preview, the "HERE" usl will become root/root/root/pdf/test.pdf

Sorry abt my "unclearly problem" just now

Have the same problem with mailto links.
Write the code, validate, it works. Edit page, it's replaced by homepage url.
Does it every time, whenever page is edited, got to rewrite all the code for these links.

Hi,

Are you running the latest patch release?

I believe all the problems mentioned here were fixed.

  • 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'm running 3.2.7.
Other than that, the wysiwyg editor does still do a few other weird things, particularly if you activate/de-activate it (like replacing apostrophes by question marks, …).

If you're not running the latest version the front page of your Admin Zone will indicate this and ask you to view our news archive. The news archive contains information about all patch releases, and provides upgrade information for each.

If you are running the latest version, please lay out the exact steps to demonstrate the problem (click by click, and what needs typing). I've tried myself but couldn't reproduce it, so based on that and also that we have fixed bugs like this, I estimated that this was fixed already- It is possible I could be wrong.

Thank you for purchasing :).




Moimaim - I have been able to reproduce your funny symbol problem. I'll work on producing a fix for this soon. If the email problem (or any others) is still occurring for you in this latest version, please post some reproduction details and I should be able to fix this for you also.
