Ahhh, thanks.

I dont know, but is it neccessary to set "normal" inputs/textareas ín RTL-Mode, too?

I've created the following file:


input, textarea, select {
    direction: rtl !important;

And added to your condition:

// Switch directionality for arabic sites in Backend Editors
if(stristr($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'], 'ar_SA') !== FALSE || stristr($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'], 'ar-')){
   HtmlEditorConfig::get('cms')->setOption('directionality', 'rtl');

And now the form fields are in RTL mode, too.

Is this correct for "arabic mode" ?
