Hi,

First, this is just an exercice and a hack , don't use it on a production website until you have completly and fully tested id !

The goal is to replace all the XOOPS dhtml textareas (input boxes), like the one you can see when you create a custom block, with Kiovi.

Begin with the kiovi's installation. Please report to the text file named readme.txt inside the kiovi's archive to know how to do it.

Once it's done, edit the file /xoops/class/wysiwyg/formwysiwygtextarea.php and rename the function render() with _render(), so you must have :
Quote:

function _render()

I have just added the underscore character at the first position of the name.

After this, edit the file named /xoops/class/xoopsform/formdhtmltextarea.php

After this line,
Quote:

include_once XOOPS_ROOT_PATH."/class/xoopsform/formtextarea.php";

add this new one :
Quote:

include_once XOOPS_ROOT_PATH."/class/wysiwyg/formwysiwygtextarea.php";


Then, replace the line :
Quote:

class XoopsFormDhtmlTextArea extends XoopsFormTextArea

with :
Quote:

class XoopsFormDhtmlTextArea extends XoopsFormWysiwygTextArea


replace all the content of the function named XoopsFormDhtmlTextArea with :
Quote:

function XoopsFormDhtmlTextArea($caption, $name, $value, $rows='100%', $cols='400px', $hiddentext="xoopsHiddenText")
{
$this->XoopsFormWysiwygTextArea($caption, $name, $value, $rows, $cols,'',$skin="default");
}


and replace the function render() with :
Quote:

function render()
{
return $this->_render();
}

That's all !

If someone have the time, you can do the same with the class XoopsFormTextArea contained in the file formtextarea.php

Bye,
Herve

that's because I have forgotted one thing.
In the file called formdhtmltextarea.php, just after this line :
Quote:

include_once XOOPS_ROOT_PATH."/class/xoopsform/formtextarea.php";

add this one :
Quote:

include_once XOOPS_ROOT_PATH."/class/wysiwyg/formwysiwygtextarea.php";


Sorry for my error.
I have edited and corrected my first post.

Bye,
Hervé

Tested OK, and modified files combined into one package.
Site-Admins, which want to use it, must also remember - Koivi kill automatic redirects for FireFox visitors

do you read this in the document of koivi editor:
Quote:
Solve Redirect Problem under Gecko Browsers

This patch was made by FrankBlack (thx for your support)

The malfunction of redirecting pages is a bug within Gecko-based browsers. Here a solution to prevent this:


Open system_redirect.html and change the line with body-tag to:




Open file xoopsroot/include/functions.php and look for function redirect_header. The line with the body-tag have to look like this:

Hello
Sorry to say that, but every time I see someone mention the Koivi editor I try yo see if it changed, and , well, it's way behind SPAW or HTMLAREA !!!

Why going to that direction?
one who used to htmlarea wouldn't come close to Koivi!!!
Is there something I'm missing ?

Kiovi is an excellent editor and above all, it runs with much more browsers than the others, even if I really like Spaw.

Well, I found it very buggy, image management is very bad and less friendly to end user.
Yep SPAW is not bad but is not enough feature rich...
