WYM_INIT_DIALOG not defined

Everytime I open a link or image popup window, I get the following JS error in Firebug:

Code: Select all
WYM_INIT_DIALOG is not defined
onload(load )

Any idea what might cause that?


EDIT: Just wondering, before the website said jquery 1.1.3 is required and provided a download link. I am still running 1.1.2 and can't find the link now. Just making sure that's not causing these problems.

WYMeditor absolutely needs jQuery 1.1.3+ to work. It won't work correctly with 1.1.2.

jQuery 1.1.3a is available at

Please also check in Firebug -> Script that jquery.wymeditor.js is loaded in the popup.

Thanks for the link! That didn't fix the problem, but you are right, the popup doesn't have any js files included. Is that something I did?

Perhaps. Quoted from the doc:
WYMeditor automagically detects the paths of required CSS and JS files.
You'll need to initialize basePath, cssPath and jQueryPath if you don't use default file names (i.e. jquery.wymeditor.js, wymeditor/skins/{skin name}/screen.css, jquery.js).

What's the SRC of jquery.wymeditor.js in your page?

I didn't have those set, but now I do and no difference:
Code: Select all
               html: $("#userresume").html(),
               basePath: "/Users/christoph/Sites/wec/fileadmin/wymeditor/",
               cssPath: "/Users/christoph/Sites/wec/fileadmin/wymeditor/skins/default/screen.css",
               jQueryPath: "/Users/christoph/Sites/wec/fileadmin/jquery.js",
               postInit: function(wym) {
                 $j("#submit").click( function() {
                   wym.update(); //clean up the HTML and update the textarea value

                  var text = $("#text").val();
                  var html = $.ajax({
                     data: "cmd=setresumetext&text="+text,
                     success: function(msg) {
                        $("#editlink a").text("Edit Resume");   

                   return false; //disable the default behaviour


Thanks for your support btw, it makes all the difference!

Is /Users/christoph/Sites/wec/fileadmin/wymeditor/jquery.wymeditor.js accessible to your browser?

Of course not ;)
I thought relative path meant relative to the base directory, which would be a subdirectory, and not relative to the server itself. All working now, thanks!!
