    Unhappy Weird issue with cftextarea/cfwindow


    A while ago, I worked on an application where a manager can approve/deny xxx applications. When some body selects an action from a drop down, it opens a cfwindow and loads cftextarea richtext="yes" in there, so that they could enter reasons for approval/denial.

    Now the culprit is that in production, the fckEditor has a ton of funky chars in IE8. (please look at the attachment). Same thing won't happen in FireFox. Also, the IE8 does not show the same stuff in dev.

    I have looked at the scripts in /cf_admin/CFIDE/scripts/ajax/FCKeditor, they are all the same.

    Since this wasn't an issue before, I am not sure where to look at. Something got updated on the server which probably causes this problem. Does anybody know what could be the problem?

    thanks

    Might be an IE8 compatibility mode thing? You sure all the code on the two servers is exactly the same?

    Looks like this is a fairly known issue with FCK and IE8: http://www.dotnetnuke.com/Community/...s/Default.aspx

    it turns out the VP put 'IE=IE7' in IIS host headers to force IE7 compatibility mode. After I made them change this to 'IE=EmulateIE7', everything started to work fine again.

    hope it helps to others.
