      Description

      When adding an assignment, a journal, or a workshop, the body window (where you type the description) is not there. If you expand the editor, you can type. The body is fine for choice, label and resource. Also, the body is fine for all modules if using Netscape 7.1.

        This is a known issue in IE and unfortunately there are no known fix for this.

        Thanks for the reply julmis. I can work around the problem, bu I am curious. Why does IE work fine with 3 modules that use HTML editors (choice, label, and resource), but not in the other 3 modules? Isn't the code the same? It is not urgent, but I do worry about my PC users who may only have IE at home.

        Some more information, if it is helpful:

        IE 5 sees the older Moodle web-form (even with HTML turned on), and works fine.

        I did a clean install of 1.2 Beta, and it did the same thing (I was hoping it was an upgrade SNAFU).

        Hi Martin,

        It is still happening. If you like, I'd be glad to give you access to the site so you can look around. If that would help, just drop me an email at mriordan@cvcaroyals.org.

        Hi Martin,

        I created you as a user for my computer class. Username = martin, password = martin. I don't know if this will help.

        Here is a URL where the body does not show up in IE 6:

        Hi,

        It works OK for me using IE 6 on your site ... I'm assuming it's a Microsoft problem of some kind and closing this for now.

        BTW, you better remove that username in case others use it.

        I have reopened this bug because it has not gone away at all, see the discussion at http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=8308. It is hitting me as well occasionally on IE6 with Windows XP, but very unpredictably.

        OK, I think Shirin has come up with an answer.

        I'm implementing this with ikawhero in all branches right now.

        From Martin Dougiamas (martin at moodle.com) Thursday, 3 June 2004, 04:13 PM:

        Shirin's suggestion to explicitly name fields was not actually any help, but I found that moving calendar_overlib_html() to the top of the page calendar/event.php will fix this bug on that page.

        So it's something to do with other javascript being run on the same page, I think.

        In my case some IE don't accept auto for height and width in htmlarea.php - funcion HTMLArea.Config = function ()(line 107). So instead of auto you can specify for example height=320 and width=650. For me it works fine.
