[Plugin: Front-end Editor] Problem maintaining line breaks

Viewing 7 replies - 1 through 7 (of 7 total)
  • Addendum: Nicedit seems to be have differently in custom fields vs the_content field.

    When it’s in the_content, hitting return will put a blank line in between text.

    When it’s it a custom field, hitting return simply puts a carriage return in.

    Why would these behave differently? Does this provide a clue to what might be going on?

    thanks.

    This is in my template:

    echo wpautop( editable_post_meta(get_the_ID(), 'degrees', 'rich') );

    (based on: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-front-end-editor-custom-fields-on-static-pages )

    Yeah, that’s wrong; sorry. Try this (notice the false at the end):

    echo wpautop( editable_post_meta(get_the_ID(), 'degrees', 'rich', false) );

    When it’s it a custom field, hitting return simply puts a carriage return in.

    In my testing, that only happens the first time, when the editor is empty. It’s a bug in NicEdit.

    Thank you, scribu.

    This is better. I’ve also noticed that you temporarily lose line breaks after you edit a custom field in NicEdit and hit Save. If you reload your post, things are back to normal. Is this also a bug in NicEdit?

    I really like your plugin, and we’re excited to deploy it to our users to edit pages.

    We’re also seeing a loss of line breaks when hitting “Save”. If I reload the post, the line breaks are there, as expected.

    1) load post
    2) double-click on a custom field to edit it in NicEdit
    3) hit save
    4) field loses line breaks

    5) reload post
    6) line breaks are there ok.

    scribu, is this expected behavior for editing custom fields with the rich text editor? That is, loss of line breaks, temporarily until reloading the post.

    FYI, I am still seeing this same behavior in the latest version of FEE, which uses CLEditor. I see the behavior when editing custom fields.

    Firstly, thanks to scribu for a truly awesome plugin that takes wordpress user-friendlyness to a new level :)!

    I experience the same problem as wjdennen, i also use custom fields and theis code to get the meta:
    echo wpautop(editable_post_meta(get_the_ID(), ‘kol1’, ‘rich’, $echo = false));

    I can edit it, but it strips out the paragraphs on the AJAX(?) loading, but works fine when i update. This may cause confusion for my customers that will update the site. Is there any work-around available?

    Again, thanks for a awesome plugin!
