WYSIWYG Editor On Edit FAQs

Post by Grunt »

When editing an existing FAQ, we get all the markdown code instead of the pretty WYSIWYG editor that's present when you create an FAQ. Unification of the editor would be great.

Which one? There are options for two WYSIWYG, I have checked both boxes, but only the one that mentions the front-end activated. I've encountered this a few times where I make configuration changes but they don't stick after hitting save. I just assumed I could only have one WYSIWYG editor.

Manually running the SQL query to enable the other editor worked and I get the nice editor in the backend.

I guess I need to figure out what's going on with making config changes not happen in SQL. No errors are showing up with debugging enabled.

Did some digging, looks like there's a logic check in the admin\configuration.php file that disables the backend WYSIWYG editor if the Markdown editor is enabled. Is there a reason they both can't be enabled, does one make the other redundant or is there some compatibility issue?

Hi,

yes, you can't use both in parallel as it breaks everything.
