#5294 confirmed New Feature

Handling textareas within CKeditor

Reported by: QQQ Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: Core : Output Data Version: 3.0
Keywords: Cc:


<textareas> are being handled like normal HTML tags, when they should be getting the same treatment as <pre> tags.

I've done a quick look and from what I see, the offending file would be fragment.js: -Line 152: Original: "&& != 'pre'" Possible replacement: " && != 'pre' && != 'textarea'"

-Line 191: Original: "else if ( tagName == 'pre' )"

Possible replacement: "else if ( tagName == 'pre'
tagName == 'textarea' )"

-Line 332: Original: "if ( == 'pre' )"

Possible replacement: "if ( == 'pre' == 'textarea' )"

That should theoretically fix it. I haven't worked much with it, so this is all untested, but it'd be nice if someone who has more of an idea how to work this could make a proper patch.

User means that contents of textarea element should not be changed by the editor, just like a <pre> tag.

NOTE: I don't think that patch is valid.

Problem can be still reproduced in CKEditor 4.x (v4).

#9995 was marked as duplicate.

Here is pull request from #9995: Taking however this ticket report into account, I'm not sure if approach is valid.

I reopened #9995 because that was a separate issue related to processing, not parsing.
