TinyMCE problem - HTML characters in Editorial Signature

Postby ramon » Fri Aug 31, 2007 5:51 am

Hello all,

A journal installed and configured TinyMCE for their journal.
Apparently, after this the editorial signature is being sent with HTML characters instead of the actual characters.
I believe TinyMCE is converting them and changing that data, but I may be way off.

Anyone with a similar problem?
How to fix this? Is there a way to disable the plugin for specific textarea fields?

Hi Ramón,

The stock version of the TinyMCE plugin in version 2.1.1 of OJS doesn't support enabling and disabling fields on an individual basis, but you might try the one that's currently in CVS. (See http://pkp.sfu.ca/cvs/cvsweb.cgi/ojs2/plugins/generic/tinymce.) The CVS version has not been tested against OJS 2.1.1, but OTOH it should be fine.
