  • Resolved dancriel


    Insert/edit link button no longer works in the MCE biography field. Nothing happens when clicked. Firebug reports no JS errors. Anyone else have this problem?

    I tried to create an account on the Tern Style forum, but I think something is broken. I could not register.



    Ok, partying in my own little thread here. I managed to fix this and wanted to post the solution for anyone else having this problem.

    In tern_wp_rte_bio.php, comment out line 39


    And add these 2 lines below it

    add_action( 'admin_print_footer_scripts', 'wp_tiny_mce', 25 );
    add_action( 'admin_print_footer_scripts', 'wp_tiny_mce_preload_dialogs', 30 );


    Thanks a ton Dan.. I’ve been facing this problem. Thanks for sharing this tip.

    Good fix, works for me as well. Author could update the code and upgrade the version, so we can all mark it as WORKING.

    Ok guys, I really did need this functionality so I searched through the plugin database to find something similar.

    The people-lists plugin had a (working) bio editor, but I didn’t need the rest of it’s functionality, so I’ve isolated the bits needed and created a separate plugin with the functionality I (we) want plus some additional code to bring the end result in line with the expected behavior for the Rich Text Biography plugin.

    Tested & found working as desired in WP 3.2.1.

    If you’re interested, you can download it.

    If you do, I’d very much appreciate it if you post back with your test results, i.e. in which WP version did you test it ? and did it work as expected ? if not, what did you do, what was the result and what was the result you expected ?

    I’m contacting the authors of the people-lists plugin to see about maintenance and also the author of the rich-text-biography plugin to see about a possible upgrade path for current users.

    what’s up party people

    follow up: if you are using WP 3.2.1 or newer then you do not need the second line. the only line you need is:

    add_action( 'admin_print_footer_scripts', 'wp_tiny_mce', 25 );

    Also, if you want to get rid of the nasty error showing up at the end of the “my profile” page, you might want to change line 41 from:
    add_action( 'admin_print_footer_scripts', 'wp_tiny_mce_preload_dialogs', 30 );
    add_action( 'admin_print_footer_scripts', 'wp_preload_dialogs', 30 );

    and see here why:
