Hi Ark Team,

Just did an update of the editor on a clients website, before the editor worked like normal now the editor page in the backend is blank.

The cause I could find for this was:

<textarea name="jform[articletext]" id="jform_articletext" cols="" rows="" style="width: 100%; height: 500px; visibility: hidden;">   

This is in a 

<fieldset class="adminform">

loading the following script, which i do not know Jquery so it could be unrelated.

    jQuery( document ).ready( function( $ )
            parameters    : 'location=no,menubar=no,toolbar=no,dependent=yes,minimizable=no,modal=yes,alwaysRaised=yes,resizable=yes,scrollbars=yes',
            id            : 'arkmedia',
            url            : '/administrator/index.php?option=com_arkmedia&editor=editors-xtd&editorname=[editor]&edit=0&stacklock=0&asset=75&author=762&language=en-GB&tmpl=component',
            key            : '[editor]'

// Define In Case The Editor Doesn't Define
if( typeof jGetEditorSelectedImage !== 'function' )
    var jGetEditorSelectedImage = function( editorname )
        return null;
}//end if


Can you help me restore the editor?

Many thanks!

Hi Joris,

This could be because the editor was updated from an older version than 1.7.5. If this is the case you would need to do a clean install as too much has changed for an update.

You should also update the Ark Media Manager as well to the lastest version.

Please also try clearing your browser cache to ensure that the browser is using the updated JavaScript.

If you require us to look into this site. Please could you raise a  high Priority support ticket and providr us with the site details.

Kindest Regards,

I uninstalled and reinstalled via the extension manager and it works now. Thanks!
