TinyMCEPlugin corrupt links

Postby eruthes » Tue Jun 26, 2007 6:27 am

When I'm writing a text on "For authors" in Setup 5.7 (for ex.) the TinyMCEPlugin plugin corrupts the links for "About the Journal" page. It changes the link from

Code: Select all


Code: Select all

It loses the journal reference...
To do the link works correctly I need to Disable the plugin, edit the link reference and after Enable the plugin.

Hi Eduardo,

This is actually a known limitation of TinyMCE, although there are a few workarounds. They have a FAQ on the subject at: http://wiki.moxiecode.com/index.php/TinyMCE:FAQ#Domain_Absolute_URLs. More recent versions of TinyMCE have a 'relative_urls' parameter which can be set to 'false' to use absolute URLs like you require.

More information is also available at: http://www.lost-in-code.com/2007/05/26/tinymce-absolute-urls-not-relative/. We are considering moving TinyMCE into OJS as part of the default libraries, in which case we should be able to include this functionality by default in an upcoming release of OJS.

Hope this helps,
