OEDIT :(

Post by beate_r » Sat Nov 29, 2008 12:07 am

Hi,

i just tried to edit something using safari on OSX and was frustrated about the code generated by oedit. I intended to enter a simple H4 tag and had to notify that in connection with safari, oedit added aditional <span> tags which enforced H4 tags to look like normal text.

Code: Select all

<h4><font class="Apple-style-span" color="#000000" size="3"><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: 12px; font-weight: normal;"><br></span></font></h4><h4><span class="Apple-style-span" style="color: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-size: 12px; font-weight: normal; "><hr></span><br></h4> 
A while ago i recognized that firefox on windows added a lot of javascript stuff to support skype when i entered phone numbers. Actually i would prefer a less "intelligent" editor leaving me control on the code i enter.

How do the other editors behave in this respect?

THX

PS: one more reason to edit content.htm directly using emacs after mounting the webspace using sshfs (or lsfs).

Beate,

did you enter the H4-tag directly in the text-area or did you use the H4-button?

I tested with Firefox under windows and got this result, when entering directly in OEDIT textarea:

Code: Select all

<p><h4>dies ist direkt eingegeben</h4><br> </p> 
When I marked the code and clicked on the H4-Button I got this result, which is correct:

Code: Select all

<h4>dies ist Überschrift<br> </h4>

To my knowledge it is not OEDIT which does theses things. It's the user plugins in Firefox and certain instruction sets in Safari which are responsible for this sick code.

Why don't you use a real RTF-Editor?
In the meantime, there are so much working solutions for CMSimple out there.
For me, of course ;) , I'll suggest FCKeditor. I've never seen a better code quality.
Just strip off the features you don't need by creating your own toolbar.

Hi Holger,

usually do my most of edits on either a local copy of content.htm or in a remote shell of my server using emacs. Therefore i use the internal editor only occasially, e.g. if i do not have a local ssh client at hand. And again, usually I use firefox without dangerous plugins and not safari or its linux companion midori. So setting up cmsimple with a mostly unused replacement of oedit did not appear worth the effort to me.
