mediawiki 1.10 v4 Have problem with centering in mediawiki.

Reported by: johnp125 Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: Project : MediaWiki+FCKeditor Version: SVN (FCKeditor) - Retired
Keywords: Cc: eric.fortin@…


I have setup the FCKeditor in mediawiki 1.10 v4 and setup the extension in the LocalSettings.php file. I also downloaded the nightly version for mediawiki.

Everytime I try and to a anything with Justify like center left right, it ignores the code when you tell it to save. In other words, in edit mode it looks like it is going to work, but when you hit save it does not put the wiki code to center in it.

I use MW 1.12 and 1.11.2 and the latest FCKeditor extension and everything works perfectly to me. Can you reproduce this bug on our sandbox:


Would it be a problem for you to upgrade to the newest version of MW?

Thanks for your help.

I cannot reproduce this bug in the sandbox because the sandbox does not have a center button turned on.


I have upgraded to a newer version with the same results.

Just FYI I am running fedora C4

I can confirm that the text justifying doesn't works, however I can't seem to find this option (formatting text - Left, Right etc.) in the wiki documentation. In my opinion the justify buttons should only apply for objects like images or tables.

Please correct me if I'm wrong. In this case we could definitely confirm this bug.

Again thanks for looking into this.

For wiki text formatting for centering use

<div style="text-align: center;"> This is the text I am centering on the page. </div>

For wiki text to Left Align use.

<div style="text-align: left; direction: ltr; margin-left: 1em;"> This is the text I am Left Aligning on the page. </div>

For wiki text to Right Align use.

<div style="text-align: right; direction: ltr; margin-right: 1em;"> This is the text I am Right Aligning on the page. </div>

fckplugin.js - hack/workaround

The issue happens because the text-align command is contained as follows:

<p style="text-align: center">Center Test</p>

In the MediaWiki plugin, it's replacing the <p> tags with a newline (\n) and then causing the childNodes (style='...') to be ignored.

Here is my hack... line 324: replace with this

if ( basicElement && !htmlNode.style.cssText)

line 760: add this to help cleanup the html


I've just started testing, but it looks ok and indents and aligns now work...

  • Status changed from confirmed to closed
  • Resolution set to invalid

Since FCKeditor is no longer supported and was replaced with CKEditor, active development of the MediaWiki extension and support for it are also finished.

I’m closing this ticket as it is no longer valid.
