I'm trying to paste <script> var foo = 'foo' </script> into a Tiny-MCE Editor field (Silverstripe 3.1.).
I know this isn't best practice, but I need a quickndirty solution for this specific problem.

I've tried a lot, e.g. to overwrite valid_elements:

HtmlEditorConfig::get('cms')->setOption('extended_valid_elements', "*
  • "); HtmlEditorConfig::get('cms')->setOption('verify_html', 'false'); // turn off html validation

This works and script-tags left in HTML-Code (results into: <script type="text/javascript">// <![CDATA[ var foo = 'foo'; // ]]></script>), but after "Save & publish" all <script></script> is gone and "cleaned" somehow (by the way, same result for <style>).

Could someone give me a hint, what cleaning-method is used here?

Thanks in advance

OK, solved it with a ShortcodeParser which parses my content:

In _config.php:

ShortcodeParser::get('default')->register('myscript', array('Page_Controller', 'ScriptParser'));

In Page_Controller (Page.php):

public static function ScriptParser ($arguments, $myscriptcontent, $parser, $shortcode) {
 	return '<script>'.$myscriptcontent.'</script>';

Example code in Tiny-MCE editor:

Hope, this helps someone else...
