I've sent you a PM.
I don't see a way to easily code the contribution to handle javascript or code that calls other code, like your styleclass. You can edit it without the html editor to a point but I think for something like that, you will just have to do it the old-fashioned way.

Hi Jack,

 

Fantastic contribution mate, well done! Definately a contribution that should be considered for all future releases of osCommerce.

 

Could you give any hints and tips on what we need to do to convert this from using the tinymce editor so we can use the fckeditor instead.

 

Thanks

You just need to change the text area function calls to those used by FCK, once FCK is installed as required, of course.

Hey Jack, is it possible to get this to work on Products Description in Categories/Products, email etc.?

Thanks :)

Those are not stored in the files, which is what TextMaster is for. You can just use the code already in place to edit those. You can enable TinyMCE on those pages (see the TinyMCE Anywhere contribution for instructions) if you want an editor for those items.

So this contrib is for php file editting and not for information stored in the DB like descriptions etc

 

Is that correct ?

 

Thanks

That's correct. There is no reason for a contribution that will do that since the ability already exists.

Ok I am new to Osc hence I ask these silly questions..

When you say that the ability exists you are talking of TinyMce or FCk..Is that correct ?

Are there other ?

Which would you recommend to a beginner please ?

 

THanks

If you are wanting an html editor, then I prefer TinyMCE. If you don't need or want an editor, then you can just edit the text directly in the products edit page in admin.

Hello Jack

 

I have encountered one problem.

 

When using text master to edit the includes/languages/english/index.php file, to edit the line that says

 

define('TEXT_MAIN', 'This is a and you know the rest

 

It stops at

 

This is a default setup of the osCommerce project...</span>\');

 

and the remainder of the text

 

</nobr><br><br>The text highlighted and you know the rest

 

is omitted.

 

Is there a way of overcoming this?

I can't find a way around this. The define('TEXT_MAIN' is not a real define, which is what the contribution uses to find the sections of codes. And the ...</span>\'); is not the real end of the line but the code thinks it is. So both of those are confusing the code. I tried a bunch of filters to get by those but they kept breaking the normal filtering. I'm sure getting the code to work for this kind of text is possible but the amount of time it would take to solve it, at least for me, is more than I have to invest. Plus, I'm not sure how many sites would have such code in their text files. So, as it stands now, the contribution can't handle this type of text.

Hello Jack

 

Thanks for taking the time to look at this.

 

I must make a mental note to not use Text Master to edit the default define('TEXT_MAIN',

 

It is still a great contribution.

Warning: mkdir(): SAFE MODE Restriction in effect. The script whose uid is 10498 is not allowed to access /var/www/vhosts/turbosim.gr/httpdocs/oscommerce/admin/backups_textmaster/includes owned by uid 48 in /var/www/vhosts/turbosim.gr/httpdocs/oscommerce/admin/includes/functions/textmaster.php on line 88

 

Failed to create the backup directory(s): /var/www/vhosts/turbosim.gr/httpdocs/oscommerce/includes/languages/greek/testpage.php

Safe Mode Restriction is a setting on the server that prevents files from being written to for security reasons. You will need to talk to your host about changing that. If they won't, you could disable the backup option. That might work but may still fail when it tries to save the actual file.

i resolved the problem my friend, and you know what i did? I had to create all the sub-directories.. Not only the backups_textmaster.. When the folder were created by the program they took the chmod 766 and i wasn't enable to change it to 777 because they had as an owner the apache, not me. So i deleted them all the subdirectories of the backups_textmaster and i create them by myself and gave them the chmod 777 and then it worked fine..

 

PS : great work!

Hi, nice contrib

 

I`m getting an error

 

if the file contains variables its not processed correctly

 

ie if I have

 

define('TEXT_SUCCESS', 'Your enquiry has been successfully sent to ' . STORE_NAME);

define('ENTRY_NAME', 'Full Name:');

 

the STORE_NAME); is not seen as end of line, and it includes the define('ENTRY_NAME', 'Full Name:'); as part of previous define

 

:)

Have you tried uncommenting the line of code as mentioned in the instructions?

Hmm, I thought I had fixed that problem but I just tested it and see it fails. I will post a fix for it when I can get to it.

Hi

 

Sorry, I am a newbie at this. I am reading the first line of the instructions: "Upload all of the files located in the admin directory of this archive to the corresponding location on your server"

 

Should I be looking for more specific directions? I just dont know where the "corresponding location on your server" should be.

 

Any suggestions? thanks

Copy everything in the contributions admin directory to the admin directory on your site and so on down the directory structure.
