Links disappearing from RTE

Avatar

Level 2

Hi,

We have an RTE component. Our client has put links using the link plugin. But some times suddenly in some places the link disappears. I mean the anchor tag remains but the href property just disappears. 

Could anyone please help me out on this.

 

Thanks,

Tushar

Hi

This is an bug.

Please reach out to the daycare with :- https://daycare.day.com/content/home/cbacomau/cbacomau_au/customer_services/105196.html#post0017 as a reference.

Workaround

In richtext.js (/libs/cq/gui/components/authoring/dialog/richtext/clientlibs/richtext/js/richtext.js).

In the file change the function 'rteFinish' from :
var rteFinish = function() {
        var rteInstance = $(this).data("rteinstance");
        if (rteInstance) {
            rteInstance.finish(false);
        }
};
to
var rteFinish = function() {
        var rteInstance = $(this).data("rteinstance");
        if (rteInstance) {
            rteInstance.finish(false);
            $(this).removeData("rteinstance");
        }
};

It will help you.

It could be a code issue or the issue with link checker that for some reason identifies the links as not reachable. 

Try disabling the link checker and see if its still the same behavior.

You can disable link checking through felix console - http://<ip>:<port>/system/console/configMgr/com.day.cq.rewriter.linkchecker.impl.LinkCheckerTransformerFactory

If the problem still persist, then probably its the code issue. Are you doing any additional processing on link on page load? or through rewrite pipeline?

Hi 

Few questions here, what type of links are getting disappear ? and specific internal links or external links ?

Do you get any error or any xss warning ? 

Last, wherever you have href written add additional attribute x-cq-linkchecker= skip" or  Disable link checker and check.

 

Reference article :- http://experience-aem.blogspot.in/2015/05/aem-6-sp2-handling-custom-protocol-in-link-href-in-rte.htm...

I hope this would help you.

Hi,

What I have seen the external links are getting disappeared. I have already disabled link checker and trying.

The think this does not happen to all the links, it happens to some links only.

Just to rule out the case of code issue, can you please configure the same links on geometrixx pages and see if its still getting disabled?

Kautuk,

Our team has a client experiencing the exact same issue. The code you provided does not resolve the problem. Is there any other direction we can take to solve this without going through daycare? Any hotfix or other update we can try?

Hi Katauk,

We are facing similar issue in rte inside a multifield.

href is getting removed from anchor tag.

Tried above solution but it is not working.

AEM Version : 6.2

We are saving nested multifield content as json.

Could you please let us know if we are missing anything else here.

Multifield js-

(function () {

    var DATA_EAEM_NESTED = "data-eaem-nested";

    var CFFW = ".coral-Form-fieldwrapper";

    var RTE_CONTAINER = "richtext-container";

    var RTE_EDITABLE = ".coral-RichText-editable";

    function setSelect($field, value){

        var select = $field.closest(".coral-Select").data("select");

        if(select){

            select.setValue(value);

        }

    }

    function setCheckBox($field, value){

        $field.prop( "checked", $field.attr("value") == value);

    }

     function setDateField($field, value) {

         if (value != "") {

            var date = moment(new Date(value)),

            $parent = $field.parent();

            $parent.find("input.coral-Textfield").val(date.format($parent.data("displayed-format")));

    

            $field.val(date.format($parent.data("stored-format")));

         }

Hi Katauk,

I don't find the method you suggested in AEM 5.6.1. Please let know where this should be changed for AEM 5.6.1

I see same issue happening in my richtext but the anchor tag is nested inside div tag this html is added using custom rte plugin.

Thanks
