  4. Click on the Link icon (the globe with the chain)
  5. Select "Email" from link type drop down
  6. Type in any email address. i used test@…

  • Keywords Confirmed IE7 added; link email ie7 removed
  • Version changed from FCKeditor 2.4.2 to SVN

Confirmed with IE7. IE6 and Firefox work fine.

a simplified test case is just this html:

<p>create a link here</p>
<p><a href="">bad link</a></p>

and create any kind of link in that text, it will fail.

The 2.4.2 seemed to work fine for me, but now I'm already too tired to be sure.

  • Milestone set to FCKeditor 2.4.3
  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

This is related to a IE7 bug. On element like <a href="">, retrieving <element>.href throws an error.

Fixed with [371].
