    Allowing Scripts in the HTML Editor Link to this post

    Hi All,

    I'm extremely new to php and SS CMS!

    I am having trouble getting some scripts to work (which I am transferring from my old html website).
    I have searched the forum for solutions, and so far have found that I should edit mysite/config.php to include:


    However, my script still won't work as the CMS seems to place comments bewteen scripts with <![CDATA[ as shown here:

    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.db798.com/pictobrowser/swfobject.js">// <![CDATA[
    <script type="text/javascript">[CDATA[<![CDATA[<![CDATA[<![CDATA[// <![CDATA[
    var so = new SWFObject("http://www.db798.com/pictobrowserp.swf", "PictoBrowser", "940", "590", "8", "#3a3a3a"); so.addVariable("source", "album"); so.addVariable("userName", "user"); so.addVariable("names", "101125"); so.addVariable("albumId", "0000000123"); so.addVariable("titles", "off"); so.addVariable("displayNotes", "off"); so.addVariable("thumbAutoHide", "off"); so.addVariable("imageSize", "original"); so.addVariable("vAlign", "mid"); so.addVariable("vertOffset", "0"); so.addVariable("colorHexVar", "3a3a3a"); so.addVariable("initialScale", "off"); so.addVariable("bgAlpha", "5"); so.write("PictoBrowser110419211155");
    // ]]]]]]]]<![CDATA[><![CDATA[><![CDATA[><![CDATA[>]]]]]]<![CDATA[><![CDATA[><![CDATA[>]]]]<![CDATA[><![CDATA[>]]]][CDATA[
    // --&gt;]]></script>

    Does anybody have any ideas????

    Many thanks!!!

    I know this is a old post, but i just had the same problem and found a (rather) hacky solution:

    Add this to your Page.php inside the Page Class.

    public function onBeforeWrite(){
             $searchFor = array(
             $this->RawContext = str_replace($searchFor, '', $this->RawContext);

    My field is "RawContext" where i used some javascript.

    You should "clean" all the CDATA Tags from the field first. Then the onBeforeWrite will filter those new added tags out.

    Re: Allowing Scripts in the HTML Editor Link to this post

    I have had similar problem with <script type="text/javascript" src+"url" statement

    Did you add this to the Page.php file at mysite/code/Page.php?

    Also re RawContext, what is this?

    Any help gratefully received. I have tried a number of suggestions on the forum but so far none have worked. I need to be able to find a way to use <script type="text/javascript" src+"url" statement.

    If I can't do this then I will have to look at an alternative cms which would be a shame because in every other regard Silverstripe seem to be just what I need.
