#5786 closed Bug (invalid)

"fckLR" inserted in reference templates breaks citations

Component: Project : MediaWiki+FCKeditor Version: SVN (FCKeditor) - Retired
Keywords: Cc: naught101@…


This is also reported here:

If you have an existing reference using a citation template, created without the rich editor enabled, and then you edit it with the rich editor enabled, FCK breaks the citation template.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. edit a page without the rich editor, and add a reference with a citation

template inside it, like this: <ref> {{Cite web | author = Author Name | title = Blah |... }} </ref>

  1. Enabled the rich editor, and then disable it (you might need to re-edit the

page). The reference will now look like this: <ref>fckLR{{Cite webfckLR| author = Author NamefckLR| title = BlahfckLR|...fckLR}}fckLR</ref>

I'm using the latest SVN version of the extension, on MW 1.16.beta3. Editing in firefox on linux.

This bug is fairly major as it completely breaks all cite extensions, and they must all be manually edited to remove line breaks or fckLR bits, if you're too late. On a big site with lots of existing citations, this is a killer.

Note : in step 1 there are supposed to be line breaks before {{, |, }}, and </ref>, like this:

{{Cite web
| author = Author Name |
title = Blah
|... }}

FCKeditor was retired and is no longer supported. All active development was moved to its successor, CKEditor 3.x, that is a fully mature and far superior product. We recommend you upgrade as soon as possible.
