[opencms-dev] TinyMCE editor creates absolute links

Hi Georg,

Many thanks for your answers.

I actually replied Friday, but looks like it didn't make it through, so I'm trying again. Sorry if somebody gets this two times.

About the links:
Will I need to build the whole thing or is it enough to build a new opencms.jar?

About the height:
I want to set the height to various values for different elements in structured content, so I can't give any one number. But say, if I wanted it 120px high, as an example - is it possible?

As for browsers, I'd say at least Firefox and IE (there are several people using the system and I don't know what they're all using).

Hello Paul,

> 1.) How can I keep internal links relative?
> Internal links are made absolute by the editor. (E.g. "/folder/file.html" becomes "http://www.site.com/folder/file.html"), and having absolute links to internal resources won't do - the workplace domian is not identical to the site domain. As far as I can tell, the relevant setting in TinyMCE are "relative_urls" (and possibly also "document_base_url"), but I can't seem to find it anywhere. Help..?
The absolute links are actually not the direct cause of your problem, 
they just trigger a bug in the link processing of OpenCms. Unfortunately 
there isn't a simple way to fix this via configuration, but this bug is 
already fixed in the master branch of our github repo 
(https://github.com/alkacon/opencms-core/), if you are interested. 
Otherwise you could switch back to FCKEditor.

Which size are you trying to set it to, and which browser are you using?
