links not active in Announcements

Postby jpowell » Tue Jun 17, 2014 8:26 am

Hi. I cannot seem to make links active in Announcements.
Also, I cannot seem to include a small graphic there either.
Any advice?
Thanks,
Judy

Hi Judy,

I suspect your "allowed HTML" setting isn't permitting some HTML you want to use. Check your config.inc.php to see what allowed_html is set to; lately the default is...

Code: Select all

allowed_html = "a[href|target],em,strong,cite,code,ul,ol,li,dl,dt,dd,b,i,u,img[src|alt],sup,sub,br,p"

Thanks Alec. That fixed the link problem. It also let me paste a graphic, however it was not viewable publicly.

Hi Judy,

What did the URL to that image look like once it was saved in the field?

Hi Alec. There really wasn't a url - just
img src="data:image/png;base64
and then a huge bunch of code that seemed to make up the image itself.

Hi Judy,

Hmm, interesting. Did you paste the image in place, or upload it using the upload image button on the toolbar?

Hi Alec.
I pasted it and also tried by dragging and dropping. Both seem to work but then neither way resulted in a viewable image in the announcement.
When we tried using the image upload we got a message saying something like "this is taking too long there may be an error" so we abandoned that method.
Thanks,
Judy

Hi Judy,

I expect neither pasting or dragging and dropping will work properly -- you'll need to upload the image via the pop-up. I'll pass this along to the developer who most recently worked on that to help you debug why it's not working.
