#8270 closed Bug (invalid)

Inserting links sometimes doesn't work

Reported by: Jason Purdy Owned by:

Component: General Version: 3.5.3
Keywords: Cc:


This is similar to issue #6730, but I'm experiencing it with a newer version than that issue was closed on.

In the attached screenshot, I double-clicked on the word Officia and clicked the link button, pasted a URL and hit Ok and the result was not as intended, as you can see. The URL is placed at the beginning of the paragraph vs. linking the word Officia to the URL.

For what it's worth, this is the stock CKEditor inside the Movable Type blogging platform.

Could you tell me what browser you are using (name and version) and what kind of CKEditor we are talking about - pure JS or CKEditor integration for Java/PHP/.NET ...?

Also does this issue is reproducible in clean version of CKEditor or only inside your platform? This would indicate configuration settings not CKEditor error.

Have you tried to upgrade to CKEditor 3.6.1? Maybe this issue has already been solved.

Waiting for your feedback.

Browser: Google Chrome 15.0.854.0 dev Pure JS

I haven't tried a clean version of CKEditor, nor have I tried upgrading to 3.6.1.

Chrome 15.0.854.0 dev is as its name states developer version which can have many bugs. CKSource does not support such versions only latest stable. In this case latest stable Chrome 13 and no such problem occurs there.

I’m closing this ticket as invalid.

I got this report from a user that uses a different browser ... let me find out what he uses, though it seems you're predisposed to not address this issue.

comment:5 Changed 12 years ago by Jakub Ś

If the issue had occurred in any stable release than this issue would have been treated as valid. If we weren’t interested in fixing bugs we wouldn’t open trac for it in first place.

If you are able to provide me with browser number which is not developer version than I will reopen this issue and will try to reproduce it.

Any step by step scenarios or sample files that help to reproduce the issue are also welcome.

Ok, cool - that's good to know ... I guess I was reading too much into your response. I'm sorry about that.

I heard back from my user and he's using Safari 5.0.6.

Here's some more information from my user:

For me, the first issue seems to happen every time except the first time I try to put in a link. Usually the first link is successful, then every one following goes into the text on a first attempt, and into the intended hyperlink on the second attempt.

Actually, now that I'm trying to reproduce this and dig deeper, I see that this is NOT a CKEditor issue, but an issue with MovableType's built-in editor. I thought CKEditor was enabled, but it was not, so this is an invalid issue for CKEditor.

My apologies for this whole mess. :)
