  • Linux Fedora 8

  • Twiki 4.2.0 RC2

  • Plugin Version: 15942 (10 Dec 2007)


  • Windows XP

  • Firefox V2.0.0.11

  • IE V7.0.5730.11


The Wysiwyg edit Window is open normal.

When i like to attach a file (press the icon), a small window is open.

But in the small window, there is just the plain html code. When i look at the page property, the firefox says Typ=text/plain.

The same is happen on the new table function.

On the IE all it is working fine and the page property says text/html.

Is this a configuration error or a bug?

Thanks for your great work.

best regards Thomas

I am getting this same problem with 4.1.2, latest versions of TinyMCE, BehaviorContrib, WYSIWYG. I think this bug should be labeled urgent, because core functionality does not work in Firefox. All of our users use Firefox, and tellling them they need to use IE is not an option.

Here is the solution to this problem: TWiki:Support/TinyMCEPluginPopUpsProblem

-- TWiki:Main.MartinKaufmann - 08 Feb 2008

I have also experienced this issue, but only with TWiki v4.2.0, not 4.1.2; the issue was reported: TWiki:Bugs.Item5298.

Thanks for the link, Martin; I hope the suggestions work.

Clarification: TWiki:Plugins.TinyMCEPlugin was NOT included in the 4.1.2 installation; so technically, if this plugin is the sole cause of the Firefox pop-up issue, then it would explain why I didn't experience such problems in v4.1.2 (I don't install additional wysiwyg editors).

-- TWiki:Main.ShivaGoudarzi - 08 Feb 2008

The information on TWiki:Bugs.Item5298. solved the problem

<Directory "/var/www/twiki/pub">
    Options None
    AllowOverride None
    Order Allow,Deny
    Allow from all
    Deny from env=blockAccess

    # This line will redefine the mime type for the most common types of scripts 
    # It will also deliver HTML files as if they are text files
    AddType text/plain .html .htm .shtml .php .php3 .phtml .phtm .pl .py .cgi

This redefines .htm to text/plain. Since TinyMCE gets the tempates for its popups from the pub dir, this is the problem.

Solution: remove .htm and .html from the above list and reboot the apache server (if necessary).

AddType text/plain .shtml .php .php3 .phtml .phtm .pl .py .cgi

I close the ticket.

Thanks for help.
