    Hi Telerik,

    We implemented a customized SharePoint 2007 site for our client and decided to use RadEditor for their content managed fields, the editor version is 5.3.2.0. Recently they reported issues with hyperlinks. I managed to replicate the issue they described and decided to try the trial latest version -5.8.10.0- to see whether it has been addressed or not. Unfortunately the problem still exists.


    Here are the steps and I attached a screenshot for each step using a simple example.
    1. Type some text on the first line and press enter
    2. Type some more text on the new line

    3.      3. Select the first line, open the hyperlink manager and bind the text with a URL – You’ll notice cursor jumps to the start of the second line

    4.      4. Switch to HTML view, you’ll see anchor markup expands to the second line too

    5. Switch back to Design view and you’ll see the second line repeated.

    I could not replicate the issue on my dev environment using the old version or the trial version but it occurs on my desktop, so I’m a little puzzled.  I also tried the scenario on your demo page “http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/editor/examples/default/defaultcs.aspx” and it does not occur there.  It also looks fine on Firefox 3.6.18.

    We use MOSSLinkManager and our configuration file is as follows;

    <configuration>

    <property name="AllowThumbGeneration">True</property>

    <property name="ConvertToXhtml">True</property>

    <property name="EnableDocking">False</property>

    <property name="ShowHtmlMode">True</property>

    <property name="ShowPreviewMode">False</property>

    <property name="ToolbarMode">ShowOnFocus</property>

    <property name="ToolsWidth">680px</property>

    <property name="NewLineBr">false</property>

    <property name="SpellDictionaryLanguage">en-GB</property>

    <property name="ImagesPaths">

    <item>/SiteCollectionImages</item>

    </property>

    </configuration>

     
    The dev box (issue doesn’t exist): Windows 2008 R2, using IE8 8.0.7600.16385

    The desktop (issue exists): Windows 7, using IE8 8.0.7600.16385

    Thanks for your help,
    Regards,
    Naz

    Hello Naz,

    I was able to reproduce this problem with the MOSSLinkManager as shown in the following video: http://screencast.com/t/i81ixbsOIY. The problem is not reproducible with the LinkManager of RadEditor and my suggestion is to replace the MOSSLinkManager with it. You can do that by opening the ToolsFile.xml / ListToolsFile.xml files and replace the following tag

    <tool name="MOSSLinkManager" shortcut="CTRL+K" />

    with

    <tool name="LinkManager" shortcut="CTRL+K" />   

    Kind regards,

    Hello Rumen,

    Thanks for the quick response.

    I've tried the LinkManager on the latest trial version of RadEditor. It lets me type the URL manually but the "Document Manager" does not list my MOSS pages.There are published/approved pages to display but it says "No records to display".

    When I try the LinkManager on our existing 5.3.2.0 version of the editor, I get javascript errors and cannot make it work.

    I was wondering whether a fix or a workaround exists or whether you're planning to implement a fix for;

    a) LinkManager: Javascript errors on version 5.3.2.0
    b) Linkmanager: Pages library listing issue on version 5.8.10.0
    c) MOSSLinkManager: Original issue of duplicating links

    Many thanks for your help,

    Regards,
    Naz

    Hello Naz,

    RadEditor for MOSS 5.x is based on the ASP.NET  AJAX version of RadEditor. This means that the following properties are obsolete:
    <property name="AllowThumbGeneration">True</property>
    <property name="ConvertToXhtml">True</property>
    <property name="EnableDocking">False</property>
    <property name="ShowHtmlMode">True</property>
    <property name="ShowPreviewMode">False</property>
    Check the following online help article: Migration from RadEditor Classic to RadEditor for ASP.NET AJAX

    I've tried the LinkManager on the latest trial version of RadEditor. It lets me type the URL manually but the "Document Manager" does not list my MOSS pages.There are published/approved pages to display but it says "No records to display". - Review the following online help aritcle: Document Manager.
    You will need to set DocumentsFilters property.

    a) LinkManager: Javascript errors on version 5.3.2.0 - upgrade to the latest version 5.8.10.
    b) Linkmanager: Pages library listing issue on version 5.8.10.0 - you need to set DocumentsFilter property
    c) MOSSLinkManager: Original issue of duplicating links - The original problem exists in 5.8.10.0. We will work on fixing it, but I can not provide you with an exact estimation of when this will happen.

    Many thanks for the response Stanimir. It clearly explains my options.

    I was wondering whether the following issue is related to the same cause and it could be investigated under this post. It has a very similar scenario.

    1) Type some text on the first line.
    2) Select the first line, open the hyperlink manager and bind the text with a URL. Press enter.
    3) Type some more text on the second line
    4) Select the second line, open the hyperlink manager and bind the text with a URL. Press enter.
    5) As soon as you type the third line you'll see it becomes a hyperlink linking to the second line's URL.

    The same environment is used on my side; using version 5.8.10.0, MOSSLinkManager and new lines as paragraphs.

    Please let me know if I should submit this under a new post.

    Regards,
    Naz

    Hi Naz,

    Thank you for the provided information.
    Please let me know if I should submit this under a new post. - You do not need to do this.

    Indeed this is a bug in the RadEditor control. I logged it in our bug-tracking system. Unfortunately currently there is no workaround for the problem and I can not provide you with an exact estimation of when such will be implemented in RadEditor for ASP.NET AJAX, respectively RadEditor for SharePoint.

    Hello Naz,

    Yes the problem still exists in the latest version of RadEditor for MOSS. I will rise its priority in our bug tracking system so we will work on fixing it again.

    Hello Telerik

    It’s been a while since we first raised the two hyperlink issues above and I was wondering whether they have been fixed in the latest version of the RadEditor. I’d really appreciate if you could provide an update on this.

    Regards

    Naz

    Hello,

    I tested the latest build Q1 2013 of RadEditor for ASP.NET AJAX and was unable to reproduce the reported problem. This build offers an improved Link Manager and you can test it in the live demos of RadEditor.

    Please, note that the support for RadEditor for MOSS is discontinued as of Q2 2012 and you can see how to manually upgrade the Telerik.Web.UI.dll to the latest version in this blog post: RadEditor for MOSS (SharePoint 2007) Discontinued as of Q2 2012.

    All the best,
