Has anybody seen this behaviour before... I add a RTE (via a rendering with a local datasource) to a page via Experience Editor... edit the text, add some text and styling etc. Save... all ok

Add a list (ordered list for example), then save... saves fine but I now can't access the field via the EE... clicking on it selects only the container, not the actual field.

Any ideas? Smells like a bug to me...

  • Do you see any JS errors after editing the RT?

  • Did you see any browser console error when you save the content ? we have noticed similar behavior with RTE while inserting '%' special character & an error log in browser console. After some analysis we came to know its an RTE issue. Sitecore provided a fix through support ticket. we are using Sitecore 8.1 Update 1 (151207) If it is possible please share your content to replicate the issue from my end. i.e. in html formate Jan 3, 2017 at 8:03
  • @BalajiKuppuswamy What do you mean "in html formate"? There's no (relevant) console errors... it appears if i add a list to a block, then go to another block and come back to that one, i can edit it... but once i've saved the page, hovering over that block shows the hand instead of the caret (so i can only select the rendering, not the content of the rendering). It works fine after multiple saves without a list in the field. Definitely looks like a bug.. i'll log it with sitecore

  • @Jeeby take a look at the html source tab and see if there is a nested <p> tag or something around the list as I've seen that break experience editor before when there is invalid html being rendered. Jan 5, 2017 at 12:30
  • I'll check that on MOnday @aseabridge, however I don't think that's the case as i can add and edit renderings with ricth text editor data sources without issue, until i add one with a list (i think that's the breaking factor) which then causes any renderings added after that point to not be editable. I haven't investigated this enough to understand exactly what the behaviour is - I'll come back to after this sprint when things have calmed down a bit and I have some spare time.
