My build is :

SS 2.2.1
XAMPP 1.6.2 (Apache 2.2.4, PHP 5.2.2, MySQL 5.0.41)

The XAMPP is supporting a bunch of other PHP code, so Silverstripe lives under an httpd.conf Alias ... redirect. This seems to require a RewriteBase statement in SS's .htacess.

Most of TinyMCE editor functions, but on attempting to insert either a symbol, table or anchor, we see an alert panel: "Undefined".

Nothing appears in the Firefox Javascript error log, nothing appears in the Apache error or access logs.

I thought it might involve some Ajax, and perhaps the RewriteBase hack might be interfering, but the lack of Apache log entries kills that theory.

Any clues ?

Similar issues in both FF and IE 7.0. IE reports "Object doesn't support this property or method".

Both are happy using the same release of TinyMCE at

<sigh> I guess I'll have to start on the Javascript.
