Relative Hyperlinks

Postby adamb78 on Wed Mar 25, 2009 4:18 pm

Is there any trick for getting the editor to show relative hyperlinks? If you click on HTML view it has either been putting in the full URL (IE) or a weird URL starting at the root of the location of the WYMEditor js (like http://mysite.com/lib/wymeditor/the/real/link.

We were using Tiny before on this same installation and didn't have this issue.

I saw that thread, and the one it linked to. But I haven't seen a simple "this is what you do to get it work." I can't believe everyone is having this issue with no straightforward solution.

Can anyone offer that solution in a few straightforward steps?

using 0.5-b2

I've seen the other posts also. I'm adding links like:

Code: Select all
$.wymeditors(0).insert('<h6><a href="'+this.href+'" title="">'+$(this).text()+'</a></h6>');


The source URL is absolute (eg. http://mydomain.org/whatever) but is added with ../../etc.

Can anyone at least explain where this behavior is happening? I've gone through the source and cannot figure out how/why these URLs get changed. From the fix mentioned, it appears that this is supposed to be a feature, not a bug. Can someone explain that, also? I'd be happy to try to patch this if, well, if I knew what to patch. But, also, I don't really understand why it happens in the first place.

FWIW, I cannot have these kinds of links as I'm using the editor to create a newsletter email. This makes the links quite useless.

I've tried to explain where's the issue:
http://forum.wymeditor.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=57#p1650

Basically it's a IE thing and has to do with innerHTML function.
Try reading the link above and if you come up with a solution, please let us know!! :wink:

I'm not a developer, but I know that it works OK with Tiny. Maybe there is something in the way Tiny does things that can be copied into WYMEditor?

I got a comment on the jquery ticket: http://dev.jquery.com/ticket/1029

They said:
"Here are some possible workarounds that may work in your situation: If you know you are creating an A or IMG element, create it and set its attributes explicitly rather than using an HTML string to do it. For reading, grab the elements with a selector and use .attr() to get the href or src attributes."

Does anyone know how to patch WYMEditor to do that?

WYMeditor already sets these attributes directly when the elements are created, it's when the html() method gets called things get messy. And unfortunately, I see no easy fix other than implementing a completely js-based html/dom-parser. I've played around a little bit with innerXhtml by Steven Tucker, and done some minor modifications to it. But I never got around to implement it, as it's still rather slow and a bit untested.

Jhon Resig has also done something similar, and his implementation is a lot faster. But it only goes one way. If anyone feels up to it then implementing a combination of the two could be a good solution. I know Jean-François (the guy in charge of the 0.5 development) would appreciate it!

Cheers! ;)
