Description (last modified by martinkou)

One problem my company has encountered is detecting if this editor was used. Unfortunately, not all browsers support this great editor. So, especially when you're using it in a 450,000-member forum, you start to hear complaints when some people's text is formatted and others' isn't.

We set a format=y/n flag in our database on each message, but we are having ot set it to 'n' on everything because carriage returns will be doubled if we format messages upon display that have already been edited by the FCKeditor.

So, we made this temporary change to fckeditor.php in the function CreateHtml():

$Html .= "<input type=\"hidden\" id=\"{$this->InstanceName}___Config
\" value=\"" . $this->GetConfigFieldString() . "\" style=\"display:none\"
>" ;


$Html .= "<input type=\"hidden\" id=\"{$this->InstanceName}___Config
\" name=\"{$this->InstanceName}___Config\" value=\"" . $this-
>GetConfigFieldString() . "\" style=\"display:none\" />" ;

That way, we can detect that that field was editing using the FCKeditor by

testing for


and setting the y/n flagaccordingly.

Just an idea.

I haven't seen any similar feature requests + FCKeditor is no longer maintained.
