Ok, this is something it looks like Ellis is not ready to really let people do even though it's in documentation, except perhaps developers who would provide via a full add-on installer and handling. However, it is possible. a. First, there is an EE interface to install new button features, but it is not called anywhere, Addons_installer:install_rte_tool. ...

For any variable that needs extra processing, like the Wygwam variable type, use the tag syntax rather than the variable syntax: {exp:low_variables:single var="my_wygwam_var"} Note that having early parsing on or off is irrelevant for the tag syntax, so you can leave it off.

There's an add-on called wygwam entries http://devot-ee.com/add-ons/wygwam-entries for P&T's wygwam which does exactly that. On github you'll find another wygwam one that can link to structure pages: https://github.com/pixelandtonic/wygwam_structure_pages

Couple of suggestions: have you looked into using Textile or Markdown for your textarea? use a div.summary instead of a p CE String has methods to strip out tags from html, check remove_tags or remove_tags_except (I use this a lot personally - lots of other useful methods too in this plugin) Wygwam has a text-only mode that can be useful.

I think this may be somewhat more simple. Can you go to your Wygwam editor configuration, under Advanced Settings, in the drop-down, choose Skin and follow those instructions. Let's see if that helps? If that doesn't work, please check your dev console for any JS errors and report them here. Thank you! Edit to add: this is quite an old post, but you ...

This sounds very similar to another post, Characters are being re-encoded in control panel. Check in your system/expressionengine/config/config.php file. Do you have $config['global_xss_filtering'] set to TRUE? It should look like this in your config file: /* |-------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Global XSS ...

This isn't a Wyvern thing at all, its CKeditor's behavior. Wyvern just wraps CKeditor and provides a few EE specific features. Any and all behavior inside of the editing region is all CKeditor's behavior. You'll have better luck at the CKeditor forums for something like this.

I used the hacksaw plugin: {exp:eehive_hacksaw cutoff="</p>"}{copy}{/exp:eehive_hacksaw}

I think Wyvern (an other wysiwyg) can "process" the ee variables and partials. https://expressionengine.com/add-ons/wyvern

There are three commercial EE add-ons which use CKEditor - all very affordable: Wygwam Expresso Wyvern And yes, you can add/edit entries via a front-end form, using the included Channel Form module.

I'm not so sure on the Expresso Editor, but if you are using WYGWAM as your WYSIWYG editor... If this is the case this might be of some interest to you : https://github.com/pixelandtonic/wygwam_template_links never used it so not quite sure if it's exactly what you want... Also see this article which may give you clues on how tyou could hijack the Template ...

Stop the presses, I don't see in your question if you followed the documented process over at bold minded here : https://boldminded.com/add-ons/wyvern/documentation (all my quotes below are from this site) So Step one (which I assume you've done as you can see it in the field list) : Adding 3rd Party Plugins (after version 1.2.7) Place your ...

I had the same problem after updating Wygwam from 3.2.2 to 3.3.3 on EE 2.7.3. I found that it's a browser cache issue. After clearing out the cache, the icons were back.

We also had this issue, solution we used is: The content editor removes empty icons when it loads. As a result, the icon needs to have some type of content inside it for the editor to leave it be. We can do this by adding a non-breaking space to the icon: <i class="fa fa-search fa-lg">&nbsp;</i>

First thing you need to do is upgrade EE, Wyvern, and CKeditor. Sounds like you're using really old versions, which I don't support.

This has been fixed in Wygwam version 4.0.8!

You should add the icon Paste From Word into your WYGWAM settings it looks like this: That'll keep basic formatting intact for you. Paste from plain text doesn't keep basic formatting. Paste from Word is handy when you are pasting content from other websites thave inline styles implemented as it removes all of that too!

First thing’s first; check to make sure you have the themes/third_party/wygwam folder in its place. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve accidentally uploaded the system folder instead. After that, I would suggest you use your developer tools in your browser to see if JavaScript is failing to load, and if so, where it’s being requested from.

I know this seems completely elementary, but I have dealt with a lot of EE1 sites that give fits and find that sometimes, it's as simple as adding quote around the value you are comparing in your logic. So something like this might work in your case: {if "{description_{user_language}}" != ""} {description_{user_language}} {if:else} {description_en} {...

You could use the built-in html formatting buttons in EE, which can be enabled on a Textarea field. This would meet your requirement of no br or p tags without the need of a plugin to strip them out. When the user clicks a formatting button the correct html is applied automatically, but it does leave the tags exposed (not a wysiwyg).

I can think of one potential drawback when using a wysiwyg for all your textarea needs: There are times where even though you want the user to have bold, italics, or link buttons, you don't want them to be able to add multiple paragraphs! If you find yourself in that situation when replacing textareas with wysiwyg fields, one reliable way around that is ...

The only downside I've ever run across is the lag when loading Wygwam on the publish pages, especially if there are more than one on the page. Wygwam is still using CK Editor 3 so it's possible that when they eventually update this to CK Editor 4 (like Wyvern has) the performance issues will be reduced or eliminated altogether. The upside for me, however, ...

I usually install a very stripped down version of any WYSIWYG editor, Wygwam included. That's usually less confusing for the client than seeing the code produced by the Rich Text Formatting buttons. If all you need are basic tags, the source code formatting is not that bad Aside from the RTE shipping with ExpressionEngine, here are the popular solutions. ...
