#119 – ARK Editor overrides icon classes from Wright Framework template

(see Icons and Icons Usage)

These are commonly used in the top menu to provide icons. This is a really ugly incompatibility. I’m guessing your usage of these classes is largely internal to the editor, so does it matter what you call them? It would be good if you could avoid the ones already used.

Before and after screenshots attached.

This also seems to only be fixable by completely uninstalling ARKEditor.

 Hi seanos,

Thank you for your post.

The problem we have here, is that we cannot rename those classes because these are not our classes but rather we are using Joomla’s own Bootstrap, which is natively distributed within Joomla. All our editor does is to utilise them. It would appear that Joomlashack’s Wright Framework is a forked version of Bootstrap 2 (which Joomla is using and so the issue is between Joomlashack’s Wright Framework and Joomla. Ideally Joomlashack should be the party to rename it's classes as they are in direct conflict with Joomla.

We will work towards removing those classes from our editor and instead release them as a plugin. For now, disabling the 'Typography' plugin, should resolve this issue. To do this: Go to 'Extensions' > 'Plugins' > search for 'typography' and disable the 'System - Typography by ARK' plugin.

I hope this helps.

Kindest Regards,
