CKEditor Strips <a> Style After Editing Link

Keywords: Cc:


Descriptive Summary - CKEditor strips the inline "style" attribute for the <a> tag after using the "Edit Link" feature

Steps to Reproduce: Open an instance of the CKEditor with allowedContent set to "true". In the "Source" view, create a link with inline styles. For example:

<a href="" style="background-color:#111111;">test</a>

Then, in the "wysiwyg" view, right-click the link text and select "Edit Link"

Change the link href (optional!) and submit the change

The link now has had the styles removed.

Browser: Chrome OS: Win 8.1x64

Sample Data:

config.js: {

fullPage: true,

allowedContent: true


Build Configuration - Specfically, I'm integrating with Angular in my project, but this does not change the operation. This same behavior is found in the examples given on the site that disable the ACF.

I have checked this issue and haven't observed such behaviour in the editor.

Are you able to reproduce this issue when switching to source mode and back in default standalone editor (in both cases getData method is called so result will be the same)? If not then I would suspect your server-side code or some third-party JS in your application.

Please try it with editor as the standalone application and check what gets send in the request or what you see in source mode.

I'm closing this issue because I haven't been able to reproduce this problem if however you are able to provide steps to recreate it in standalone editor freshly downloaded from our page then I will reopen it.

@j.swiderski: Please check - I was also able to reproduce it.

I have used fullPage with allowedContent set to true.

I have done exactly what is written in @jmwright798 comment.

I have pasted the link, edited it (no change) switched to source (no change) or submitted form (no change in request params) In all cases link contains styles.

Like @Reinmar, I have reproduced this issue using the test editor provided here that has fullPage and ACF disabled:

To show my process more clearly, I have created a GIF of the steps here:

I appreciate the input and help so far! Let me know if you have any questions!

Thank you for the details. I have managed to reproduce this problem however it doesn't have anything to do with the fullPage bur advanced tab in link.

This is a duplicate of #12739.
