Bug - cannot save text in "editor" profile fields?

5 years 11 months ago #1 by icfsingapore
Hello there,
When I use the "editor" field for a profile, I have a few issues:
1) when I try to edit the existing text, it always shows a random letter or number instead (like "a" or "1" "2") -- See photo below.
2) I can't see to find a way to use the rich text editor (it is always just plain text).

What do you think I'm doing wrong?
I am replacing these profile pages from our previous website, and I want users to be able to enter large chunks of text, like this kind of length: www.icfsingapore.org/about-icf/committee...05/sobi2details.html

Hello,

Sorry for the trouble.

#1 : We will check the issue at our end and let you know about it.
#2 : Yes, currently we do know display any editor and editor type plugin is used as textarea. The reason behind the improper html formatted data can be entered by user and we use Ajax so no none of current joomla editor was working proper with JoomProfile Ajax.
Either we need to give some other external Text Editor. If you need it very much, then we can look into it

Thank you

I would definitely expect the profile to be able to save multiple paragraphs. How can I do that?

I tried out the Text Area field rather than editor, and it saves but cuts of at about 40 words/ 255 characters (about 1/8th of the text I want to enter). Let me know what solution you recommend!

Hello,

I will add support in editor field so that you will be able to see text area over there and user will be able to enter huge text.
Please wait for couple of days.

Thank you

Hello ,

We have released an updated version of JoomProfile.
In which you can use Editor type field, which will allow user to enter more that 255 characters, but it won't be searchable and user will see textarea not a Text Editor. Please download it and let us know if you find any issue.

Thank you

Hello,
Oh no! I'm sorry but what was mentioned by the extension was an editor field, so this doesn't really suffice.

Can you at least make the field searchable?Thank you!

Hello,

Editor field uses Text type column, and searching in text type field is performance issue.
That why we have not given this option and no one has asked it yet.
Do you really need it?

Currently, we have the ability to search in "text" fields, right?

The profile extension is being used for member resume profiles, so being able to search is important! Is it possible to have "text" fields with more than 255 characters that can be searched?

"Editor" fields would be great, but rich text isn't necessary. I just suggest you remove the "editor" field option if it doesn't work.

Editor field is working now.
What I was trying to say that, for more than 255 character we need to create a filed on type 'TEXT' in MySql Database and searching in 'TEXT' type field in database degrades the performance. So it should be build properly, not in hurry.

But still let me check if I can give it to you in some couple of days. I hope you are not in too hurry.

Thank you for clarifying!

No need to build the search -- I will make a "Searchable keywords" text field so people can enter more searchable keywords, and leave their full profiles as unsearchable. I'll try the updated version and see if the Editor is all good!

I downloaded the update from www.function90.com/downloads.html .

To install it, do I still go to "Extensions: Install" and upload it? Any other tips or warnings?
It won't affect my current user details, right?

Thank you!

Yes, it won't effect any existing setting and data. It will remove the changes if you have in the code of JoomProfile.
But I guess, you have not made any changes in that. So you can install it as you described.

Thank you

Oh no! Not working.
I installed 1.2.7, logged in and out, changed the field type to editor, but when I paste in some plain text and click "save" it becomes blank -- not even a snippet or random number (which was what happened before).

What am I doing wrong?

It's still not working so I will send you account details to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Thank you!

Here's what I did and what happened:
1. Download 1.2.7
2. Install in Extensions >> Install
3. Install successful
4. Change Joomprofile Field for "Personal Profile" to "Editor" and save
5. Go to any profile and paste in 4 paragraphs of text, save
6. No text appears (no digits or anything)

Can you create a new field instead of changing the type of field and try again?
