automatically make a paragraph when users start typing?

Postby alfrombrum on Thu Jul 12, 2007 1:22 pm

hi,
is it possible to make is so that a paragraph is automatically made when users start typing?

at the moment, when there is no text and users start typing, the text is unformatted. to make a paragraph, users have to click on the 'b' or 'i' buttons (even selecting paragraph from the formatting menu doesn't work in 0.4 beta 2 - at least not in the code i copied from the demo page). since this is an unnecessary step, how can i make it so that a paragraph is automatically made when a user starts typing?

thanks,
al

You can set it up so that you start with a paragraph instead of a blank canvas: pre-populate the editor div with "<p> </p>". Seems to work well in v0.2, YMMV.

i can't get it to work.

if i change the initial textarea that the wymeditor replaces and put in <p> </p>, a white paragraph box is displayed, but when i click in it, the cursor goes to the end of that box, and new text is inserted below it, unformatted. i'm using firefox. apparently it works fine in ie.

thanks...

Does the demo work for you?
What's your FF version?
Where do you put the '<p></p>' ?
Do you get any error message?

I think I see what's happening.
Please test with <p><br></p> instead of an empty paragraph. FF needs the <br> to edit it.

<p>&nbsp;</p> is probably better than a <br>. There just has to be non-whitespace text in there.
