paragraph tags

Postby frogfood on Tue Dec 26, 2006 6:15 pm

How can I preserve lists? Everytime I paste text with lists in them the lists are stripped and are just divided by breaks. I've commented out and played around with the li and ul code in util.js. Now, when I do that I do get a list but all the paragraph tags are removed and replaced with breaks.

Any help would be most appreciated. :)

edit : Just to add, this only occurs in IE6. Firefox works fine but it isn't an option with our CMS.

I suppose you paste from another app or another window, so paste cleanup is on.
If this is your case, you should see pasteData() in wym.js.
Actually this function takes the raw text, so removes all the markup.
This is the only 'easy' option, because it's extremely difficult to handle the ugly code coming from Word or other apps.

The line sTmp=sTmp.replace(/\r\n/g,"<br />"); replaces newlines by a br tag.
If your list elements begin with some special character, you can easily find them, take the line's text and put <li>text</li> in sTmp for each list element.

Another option is disabling the paste cleanup by simply removing onbeforepaste and onpaste in editor.htm.
