U4-3686 - Umbraco 7 - Rich Text Editor and Macro Issues

Created by Ahmed Abdul Moniem 25 Nov 2013, 04:24:30 Updated by Shannon Deminick 09 Dec 2013, 22:34:24

Insert Macro Issue: 1 - I have added some source code from the source code window of the RTE 2 - then after that I reverted back to wyswyg window and after the source was inserted I have added a macro using insert macro option after the source I have inserted and clicked save and publish 3 - suddenly all the text and source has been cleared but only the macro remains.

Render in RTE Issue: 1 - I created a macro and ticked the option of "Render in RTE" 2 - whenever I tried to add this macro to any RTE and clicked save and published it get duplicated (the html)

I cant replicate either of these, the first one I would suspect the editor accidentally marks all content before inserting macro, but the other one I can replicate with macros rendering various html.

Any more details on browser, what parameters on the macro, does the macro actually render in the RTE, what type of macro?

For the Insert Macro Issue:

1 - Browser = Chrome latest version 2 - The macro parameters were none 3 - The macro render in RTE option is disabled so it is not rendering in the RTE 4 - macro type = .NET user control

For the second issue it is same as above

I've created a macro with MVC Partial view.

@using System.Linq.Dynamic @inherits Umbraco.Web.Macros.PartialViewMacroPage



which renders fine in the editor. When hitting save and publish the content of the macro gets duplicated.

The same issue of Henrik with .Net Controls

Yeah something strange is going on :( Had tested this quite a lot, maybe something has accidentally changed, will fix .

This is pretty much fixed now in 2eb5c088258fd0ff1c4cb975da476583ce7208a8, It's all working, just need to do a bit more testing.

I've just pulled the code from github last night, and build the umbraco.MacroEngines.dll in my project. Im still getting the duplicate content error. Am i missing some other .dll?

The umbraco.MacroEngine's is not responsible for this - that assembly is purely for the legacy razor macros - in fact nearly every class in that assembly is obsolete.

Try running from the latest nightly of 7.0.1 : http://nightly.umbraco.org/umbraco%207.0.1/ You'll need to replace all files in ~/bin ~/umbraco ~/umbraco_client
