    I have just installed the Lite RadEditor for MOSS in our environment.

    We have a standard installation with MOSS running on one server and the databases running on a separate SQL2005 server.

    After following the installation instructions I managed to get the editor to function except for the MOSSLinkManager button. It´s active but nothing happens when I click the button. Image Manager and the Table Wizard are working just fine. Any suggestions?

    Hi,

    Does this problem occur on a MOSS 2007 site or on a WSS v3 only site? The Link manager dialog tries to load the internal MOSS asset picker dialog. This dialog is available only on MOSS 2007.

    Also, we have a confirmed bug with the MOSS asset pickers in the editor web part on some page types in MOSS - for example a basic web part page. The error is caused by a missing javascript reference (form.js). It has been fixed and the next editor release will work fine in the above scenarios as well.

    For the time being, I suggest that you edit the RadEditor tools file - ToolsFile.xml, located by default at \Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\wpresources\RadEditorSharePoint\4.1.0.0__1f131a624888eeed\RadControls\Editor\. Open this file and change the MOSSHyperlinkManager tool to just HyperlinkManager. This way you will be able to insert links again. The only difference will be that you cannot browse the MOSS pages to select a link.

    We apologize for the inconvenience.

    Hello again!

    Managed to fix the problem. When I changed the tools name in the tools file - ToolsFile.xml to LinkManager your manager started to work. I was unable to get HyperlinkManager or MOSSHyperlinkManager to work.

    Thanks for helping me out!

    Hi,

    LinkManager also worked for me, but I also needed to modify the ListToolsFile.xml file in the same directory.

    Thanks for helping on this one.

    In our case the MOSSLinkManager opens without any problems with both, IE and Firfox. But: in Firefox it does not add any links to the richtext-box nor does it attach a link to a highlighted text. It also behaves strange in other ways: It is only possible to insert text into the URL-line after I opened the "browse" dialog.

    Any suggestions?

    Hello Andreas,

    The MOSS Hyperlink Manger dialog is part of MOSS and we have no control over it. The RadEditor simply opens the dialog and waits for its return value. The Microsoft team told us that this asset picker is cross-browser compatible. It seems that this compatibility only includes IE and Safari. Our suggestion is to use the built-in RadEditor Hyperlink Manager (the tool is called just "LinkManager"). Alternatively you can try to modify the Asset Picker dialog to work with Firefox, but we currently have no information on how to achieve this.

    Best wishes,

    Hi,
    When i use MOSSLinkManager on 4.5.0.0__1 on a MossPicture my picture disappear and it's replaced by just a link (on ie6 but on Firefox not problem) 

    To resolve my problem I changed in MOSSEditorTools.js :

     configObj.ReturnCallback=function(newAssetUrl, newAssetText, currentConfig, dialogReturnedData)
     {
      if (dialogReturnedData)
      {
       var linkText = "";
       if (editor.IsIE)  //I replace isIE by IsIE
       {
        linkText = elemLink.innerText;
        innerLinkHTML = editorSelection.GetHtmlText();// I add this line
       }

    Hi,

    Thank you for the information. I will forward it to the editor developers so it can be included in the next RadEditor for MOSS release.
