Update TinyMCE in ISC

Post by Martin »

Following on my from my IKM update of TinyMCE I've done the same thing with ISC 6.1.1 as follows:
  1. Downloaded the latest version of TinyMCE
  2. Downloaded the latest version of (TinyMCE) Compressor PHP
  3. Extracted both
  4. Copied the following files to the extracted TinyMCE folder:
    • tiny_mce_gzip.js
    • tiny_mce_gzip.php
  5. Renamed website folder /javascript/tinymce to something like tinymce-OLD
  6. Uploaded the new extracted tinymce folder to take its place
  7. Copy the following plugin folders from the old version to the new one:
    • interspireimg
    • linker
    • mediaservice
That's pretty much it...

Key thing to note as I found this the hard way...

Make sure you hard refresh your browser after upgrading and ensure that any caching has been refreshed as well...

NB: I found that my firewalls proxy server and cache had been keeping an old copy of tiny_mce_popup.js in cache which caused various errors particularly this one:
tinymce.dom.Event._add is not a function
That's a sure fire indicator that your hosted version is out of date or a cached file is still being pulled in... So check anything like eaccelerator, etc... before getting bent out of shape...

Have there been any discussions (perhaps with cookbook instructions) that explain whether or not it's possible to update the old Devedit with TinyMCE?
ISC 4.0.7

Is that what was in place before TinyMCE was used?

If so, probably not... It would require a bit of diff() utility comparison to go that route I'm afraid...

Yep... my old workhorse version 4.07 (plus thousands of hours of tweaks and updates) is still cranking away with the clunky Devedit. It's fine for now, but it's not without its issues. ~ If there had been a step-by-step on how to update, I'd find the time to get it done. But for now, I just don't have the time to figure it out myself. (I'm sure I could *do* it... it's just finding the time.)

(How's the kid? Hope fatherhood is better than you imagined it would be.)

Thanks found this walk through, sadly due to new versions it seems the TinyMC function isn't loading. Dead in the water.

Not tackled it with anything new as there's been no need my end and frankly I have 7 years of work to do with 2 months to do it in as per usual.

May revisit but only if it becomes required.
