ProjectPier WYSIWYG Editor


Recently, I did a quick hack of ProjectPier to allow the use of textile editor but there was one challenge. E-mails being sent weren't formatted. So I decided to make a few changes and now ProjectPier has a fully functional WYSIWYG editor (nicEdit) and sends e-mails in a valid HTML format.

Doesn't work for me. Did everything in the readme.txt file. Perhaps, I'm missing something? Are there something else that I need to install?

Yen, what version of ProjectPier are you using?

wrerm said...

Yen I just went through the instructions and the installed a fresh copy of project pier and it worked.

Go through the steps again and ensure that you copied over all the files need...If you got an error message can you post that as well please?

Thanks!

very nice done, works like a charm.

wrerm said...

Benoit, thanks for the feedback. I'm glad to know it "works like a charm"

Sweet-worked a charm.
Noticed a typo on you Readme file it mentioned the file application/layouts/administrator.php.
That should of been the file administration.php.
Replace all files, and run it's that easy!
The files are organized in the directory structure that you would find them in your ProjectPier installation directory, so that makes them easy to find.
I just renamed my backed up or original files by adding a -bkp before the file extension bits.
No problemo' thanks so much.
Being able to have hyperlinks is going to rock my ProjectPier world!!!

wrerm said...

tzQuery thanks for pointing out that I had a typo. I fixed it.

I'm glad to know that the modifications helped a lot. I love ProjectPier a lot so I had to share :)

Benjamin said...

wrerm said...

It doesn't work with french translations? I may have to look into that...

wrerm said...

It worked fine for me! Thank you.

My team just started using ProjectPier and the ability to add links to messages is essential in our projects. There is a little bit of learning curve for users entering the link text and url due to the markup language structure (not wrerm's fault, of course), but still an extremely valuable add on.

Julia said...

Thanks for this addon, but unfortunately it only works for me in the comments textarea. When posting a new message, I still get the old plain textarea without the editor. I'm using the latest version of PP. Any ideas?

erbag said...

Julia. I'll look into that for you. Not sure why that would happen.

Are you using Mac/PC?
What Browser are you using?

Julia said...

Thanks! I'm using a Mac and it's the same with either Safari (3) oder Camino/Mozilla.

wrerm said...

Julia, please check to ensure that all the relevant files have been copied over. Make sure your also using the latest version.

I check it using Safari 3+, Firefox and IE. Mozilla Firefox 3.0 and Camino 2.0 use the same version of the Gecko Engine so you should have a problem there.

Install was easy and it works. Only noticed one issue - that's if you edit an existing message, the 'Additional Text' area is already visible even though hyperlink state = 'Expand'.

If you click the link, you get three text windows and the nyperlink state = 'Collapse'

I'm using project pier, latest version.

Any ideas?

wrerm said...

Jim,

I'll look into that. I intended to make some mods to this hack ASAP. Will post it as soon I'm able to fix the issue.
