Heads up! This content is more than six months old. Take some time to verify everything still works as expected.
I was setting up a new site today for a client. I got caught up on the WYSIWYG install though. I selected loads of buttons from the profile, include "Advanced Link." I swapped over to begin testing out a new feature I was going to put in, and noticed the editor failed to load entirely.
I went through the standard Drupal checklist for WYSIWYG issues:
- Check the WYSIWYG module is installed.
- Check the format you want the editor for has a WYSIWYG profile associated.
- Triple Check the files Drupal links to really are there.
- Check the template to ensure it includes
<?php print $scripts; ?>and
<?php print $closure; ?>
After blowing through the standard items, I checked in different browsers. And up it came. So, a Firefox bug. I started looking around for known FF WYSIWYG bugs. Most of the complaints I found were akin to "Your custom Firefox profile takes too much memory, or is corrupted." The answer suggested? "Delete your profile." HA! Not without no other alternative. So, I began playing the hunt game disabling addons, which led me to Ad Block. And as I mouse over the little offending bastard, I see "One item blocked." Pressing Ctrl-Shift-V will open it if you like keybinds.
So your options to fix it are:
- Allow the exception to the filter (You blocked it, you should fix it.)
- Alert the media, and hope Filterset.G doesn't tell you to take the above option.
- Don't use Ad Block
- Don't use Advanced Link
