Summary0011755: FCKeditor does not appear in the message or template editor windows
After a fresh install (of 2.10.5 and 2.10.4) the FCKeditor frame does not appear in the message or template editor windows. No text area appears at all, so editing of any form is impossible.

A quick fix is to remove the following line in fckphplist.php:

line 589 // FCKConfig.ProtectedSource.Add( /<%[\s\S]*?%>/g ) ; // ASP style server side code <%...%>

WARNING: I believe this this may leave a vulnerability open under certain conditions - see 'Cause' below'

The cause seems to be having ASP-style tags turned on in PHP.ini:

    asp_tags = On

This causes the <% and %> in the javascript to be interpreted as PHP opening and closing markers. I haven't been able to test this theory though, as I have to have ASP tags on for backward compatibility.

TagsNo tags attached.

Doesn't fix it for me in FireFox. asp_tags is set to Off in my php.ini and I removed line 589 from fckphplist.php but no luck. I see the FCK header with all the buttons but I can't enter in text or see test when editing an existing me. Work fine in IE 6 and 7 though.

Hi Tristan,

I think you have a different problem - when I had this problem I didn't get *any* FCKeditor window/toolbars/textarea at all.
