RTE Dialog Source Edit - Content with HTML Tags rendered

Avatar

Level 3

Hi All,

 

I have a component in AEM with a property that's Rich Text enabled using sling:resourceType - cq/gui/components/authoring/dialog/richtext

The component is working correctly in edit mode for Source Edit. The HTML tags render the content enter correctly.

However, as soon as I click ok and come to Edit/Preview screen - The content comes with HTML tags (like <h6>Hello, Rohan</h6>)

 

So the source edit works correctly when configuring content but the html tags do not get removed in edit/preview mode.

 

I have attached 3 screenshots showing the same. I can send the xml of the dialog if required.  Image 1 - Source Edit ModeImage 1 - Source Edit ModeImage 2 - Normal Edit Mode outside Source EditImage 2 - Normal Edit Mode outside Source EditImage 3 - Component in HeadquartersImage 3 - Component in Headquarters

Are you using sightly? If yes then have you used context='html' while rendering e.g. 

<div>${properties.richText @ context='html'}</div>

What's stripping the custom tags is XSS filter, which is based on OWASP AntiSamy. You can find and customize the configuration for it under /libs/cq/xssprotection/config.xml. There you can add rules to allow your custom tag.

 

You need to allow the custom tags in RTE.

If the tag is not allowed in XSS filter you have to add it.

Hi @berliant, thanks for your quick reply. I am not using any custom tags in RTE, only standard HTML tags. I downloaded the RTE Component Zip file from Adobe's documentation and that's working correctly with the same basic HTML tags..

The tag is allowed in XSS Filter. Here's the entry below:- <!-- All formatting tags --> <tag name="h1" action="validate"/> <tag name="h2" action="validate"/> <tag name="h3" action="validate"/> <tag name="h4" action="validate"/> <tag name="h5" action="validate"/> <tag name="h6" action="validate"/> <tag name="p" action="validate"> <attribute name="align"/> </tag>

@berliant thanks for your help ! The problem was not with XSS Filter. It was at Sightly end. I had converted the resourceType from text to richtext without incorporating context changes in Sightly. Thanks for your time & help.
