    Hi,

    I'm struggling with the RADEditor Image and Link manager. I'm working on a personnalized internet facing SharePoint site using my own default.master page and trying to use div, span and Css instead of "Table" layout that standard SharePoint master page provides. In some of my pages I use RadEditor controls with the following ConfigFile properties :

      <property name="AllowThumbGeneration">True</property>
      <property name="ConvertToXhtml">True</property>
      <property name="EnableDocking">True</property>
      <property name="ShowHtmlMode">False</property>
      <property name="ShowPreviewMode">False</property>
      <property name="ToolbarMode">Default</property>
      <property name="ToolsWidth">550px</property>
      <property name="Skin">Telerik</property>
      <property name="EditModes">Design</property>
      <property name="ImagesPaths">
     <item>/SiteCollectionImages</item>
      </property>
      <property name="Language">fr-FR</property>

    The problem is that the Image Manager and Link Manager don't display in the screen, they appear far below the page, forcing users to scroll down to see the managers. I'm using Telerik Manager instead of Microsoft ones and I guess this is a problem with how my elements are positionned but I can't find what's wrong. Does anyone know how to solve this behavior ?

    Hi Maucourant,

    Could you please give us the HTML and CSS code for the wrapping the RadEditor div or span element and for the layout holder element. This way we will be able to reproduce the issue on our side and help you further.

    Thank you.

    Hi,

    We're experiencing this as well on a page that has multiple instances of the rad editor (in MOSS 2007).  The image manager and link manager appear in the correct place for the topmost control, but the offset is increased for the second and third.  Opening the image or link manager in the third rad editor control causes them to open 2000+ pixels below the page.

    This only happens in IE (we're using 7).  It does not occur in Firefox.

    Hello Eoin,

    The reason for this behavior is probably that the browser renders the MOSS site in Quirks mode. The RadEditor for MOSS is based on the RadEditor control, which is created for XHTML compliant pages with <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd"> doc type. You can test if putting the doctype tag on the MOSS site will stop the problem.

    Hi Stanimir

    Thanks a lot, this was the problem, I put the DTD for XHTML transitional and now it works.

    Best regards.

    Stanimir,

    Thanks.  That worked for us as well.  It's unfortunately knocked out our custom styles, so we'll have to rework these.

    Hi,

    The same here, some minor glitches appear here and there, and we need to fix them, but no big deal I think. Oh Joys of CSS designing :)
