Toolbar customisations

We have two custom toolbars - one for use in authoring and one in learner (used in Forum).

To make all the buttons on the toolbar work when using Greek, we've had to change the translation of Format from (Μορφή Γραμματοσειράς) to (Στυλ), so that all the buttons fit. This required a change to lams_central/web/fckeditor/editor/lang/el.js

Extensions and Plugins

The FCKEditor has a large number of plugins and extensions that can potentially work with LAMS. Some of them require a bit of tweaking to make them work with LAMS in a proper way.

Due to licensing reasons, we cannot include these plugins directly in LAMS. Therefore we provide information on how to install them and use the within LAMS, but it is up to you to fulfill and follow the limitations of the licenses.

It probably means your $JBOSS_HOME/server/default/deploy/lams.ear/lams-www.war/secure directory is not writable by the user that jboss JBoss is running as or the EAR Directory on the Edit Configuration Settings screen is wrong. Check your EAR Directory settings and the the directory permissions. Would It would also be worth checking the repository, dump and temp dirs as set in the lams_configuration table, as these must be directory settings on the Edit Configuration Settings screen, as well as checking that these directories are writable by the jboss JBoss server as well.

Strange link behaviour with Safari

...

If you paste the same text into Firefox, the prompt does not appear. So when you use Firefox you have to remember to use the special Word paste button.

Word

Wiki MarkupThe effect of pasting text from Word is different depending on whether you use Firefox or IE. If you are pasting text into the HTML Editor in Firefox from Word and the text is part of a list, you might get <\!\--\[lams:if \ !supportLists\]-\-> in the text. But it is only seen on the screen in IE (not in Firefox), so it probably won't be discovered till a learner goes in in IE. This was discovered while entering question text in the survey tool.

It has to do with differences between IE and Firefox - for a full explanation see https://bugs.lamsfoundation.org/browse/TP-6.

Issues with FCKEditor translations

Greek

It seems that in some languages and given the size of the fckeditors that we have, some parts of the FCKEditor don't show properly

Image Added

So Spyros Papadakis (from Open University Greece) has suggested to change the translation of the FontFormat label (in the el.js file) from Μορφή Γραμματοσειράς to Στυλ instead (see here). If we upgrade to other versions of FCKEditor, we should incorporate this change as shown here.
