Bugs and Gotchas

  • Saving after editing may give a Huge Red Error Message
    • Inside the message is the full html of your page.
    • It contains some bad characters.
    • Copy the full html and paste in a good text editor -- which will reject the bad characters.
    • Reload the page (all your changes will be lost).
    • Edit the page, click "Source" and replace all the html with what you have in your text editor.
    • Works with Edit Pad Lite 7, and ??

The Table Border Bug:

Why does a table have a gray top border with either border=1 or border=0?

top right top left
bottom right bottom left
top right top left
bottom right bottom left

It can be fixed by using a style (such as style="border: 0px;" ) inside of <tbody>

Displaying HTML for visitors to copy.

Google displays code in a <textarea>. The trouble is that CK editor tampers with what's in this area unless it's using PHP mode. But then you can't do regular editing.

If you use PHP text formatting and then switch to Full HTML and back, CK will change > and > etc into &lt; or whatever. UNLESS, you change  <textarea>stufff</textarea>  to <pre>stufff</pre>.

Then you can change to Full HTML and back and then switch to textarea.
