#310 closed Bug (duplicate)

Most files of Version 2.4.1 are corrupted

Reported by: Matthias Gallas Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: General Version: FCKeditor 2.4.1
Keywords: Cc:


Most files of 2.4.1 are corrupted, wich means that at the beginning of a lot of files are stored additional signs wich causes issues and missfunctions when you try to use version 2.4.1. The problem ist that this additional signs in the most files only can be seen with a HEX Editor. Affected are a lot of .js, .html and .php files in the whole package.

The hex code wich should be deleted at the beginning of the affected files is:

ef bb bf

The related ASCII signs are:

Attention: In some files this code is stored mor then on time at the beginning of the files.

Additional Informations are also here:

A ticket wich i could solve with manually cleaning all files is here:

By the way, after manually changing all the affected files 2.4.1 is great.

Keep on that good work

Sorry to say, but the solution from #279 only means to store 3 files again. But there are a lot of more files in the package affected from this issue. If you mean the problem is solved laeve this ticket closed. I made an SVN export right now and the files are not fixed there and also they are not fixed in the download package.

Check out the nightly build.

comment:4 Changed 17 years ago by Matthias Gallas

I checked the nightly build right now and there is nothing fixed. f.e. view the fckonfig.js with an Hex Editor and you will see what i mean. And this is in a lot of files.

.js and .asp files "must" have the UTF-8 BOM. All other files will not have it. Version 2.4.1 has been shipped with the right opposite of it.

comment:7 Changed 17 years ago by Matthias Gallas

That's correct, but PHP has a bug with the BOM wich causes this wrong displays and issues. So as far as i know the BOM is not absolutely necessary for UTF8. It also works without BOM. Found this here in a 2 minute googling:

So for UTF8 it makes no difference if BOM is there or not, but PHP didn't work in some cases if files are stored with BOM maybe its better to store all files without BOM.

Ok after doing some more tests I'm according fredck that it is correct to store all .js and .asp files in UTF-8 with BOM. This works also on php enviroments. All other files (especially .php and .html) should be cleaned from the boom, but this seems already to be fixed in the fckreleaser and the latest nighly build. So nothing else has to be done and this ticket can be leaved as closed.

Thanks for this great editor.
