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.
This is a bug. Please open a support ticket to it can be fixed.
Tomorrow - i am going to test Coral/Granite MF for 6.3 on same use case.
How are you writing out the value of the RTE in HTL?
Thanks for the reply. As we are using ACS AEM commons multifiled, we are storing RTE data in JSON. We use WcmUsePojo to get the property in to back end, process the JSON and use that in output in HTL.
I added loggers in Java and checked also, the property value is not having href at all there also. I think the issue is occurring as soon as you open the dialog, it is stripping out href.
Hope this answered your question.
I am doing this use case right now to verify if i can reproduce your results on AEM 6.2.
I tested on 6.2 and see the LINK in the RTE -
WHen i close the page and reopen it - the link is still there and renders to the page --
I am not seeing your issue. Like i said earlier - looks like a bug in your system.
The JSON in the prop at /content/mfHTL62/en/jcr:content/par/touchmulti is this format:
"text":"<p>Hello There - this is <a href=\"http://www.cnn.com\">CNN</a></p>\n"
You can see the href is still there.
Thanks for trying. Could you be able to provide the code in a package? I will install that package in our AEM instances and check whether i can re-produce or not.
Thanks for your help.
I will update our MF 6.2 article and put in all the code and package. Check back in a day or so to see this article updated with RTE that works -- Scott's Digital Community: Creating an AEM 6.2 HTML Template Language component that uses a Multi-Fi...
Package is updated with output that includes links from a RTE -- as shown here:
