RTE in multifield is not working as expected


Level 4

Hi all,

I am using AEM 6.2 SP1 CFP9. I am running in to issues with rich text editor in multi field. I copied richtext present at  /libs/cq/gui/components/authoring/dialog/richtext in to apps. I created a component with multi field using ACS AEM Commons multi field widget, i have rich text in mutifield.

The problem is when i create link in RTE and save for the first time, link will be working. If i open the dialog and save RTE again even with out editing, It is removing href and saving the data.

For example: if i have link as <a href="https://forums.adobe.com/content/geo/a.html" target="_self">Link 1</a> in the first save. If i open the dialog and save it again, it is transforming to

<a target="_self">Link 1</a>"

Any thoughts on this issue would be helpful.

"some Multi Filed issue with Acs commons" - then we would see this with Fresh instance - but it works.

I am going to test on Coral/Granite MF too - that one for 6.3 does not need an ACS-Commons.
