Background color showing in tinymce

Hello,

I have a template that has a background color of green. When I go into Joomla > Articles to either create a new article or edit an existing article the entire text area in Tinymce is green. Of course this makes it difficult to work with text or other elements and I'm wondering what would cause this. In Artisteer I have the sheet set to No Transparency and it looks fine when published. Any help greatly appreciated.

Go to the TinyMCE Editor and set the "use template CSS" option to "no".

Turning off the template css doesn't work in TinyMCE editor plugin. This is definitely an Artisteer issue, because I don't have this problem with templates I create by hand.

I use JCE which I believe uses the basic TinyMCE as it's core. The fix isn't that difficult in JCE. Set the the "Use Template CSS" to "No" as above.

Change the "Custom CSS file" to "templates/$template/css/editor.css"

Then edit the template CSS file "editor.css" in the template manager by changing the "background-color: #[artisteer value];" to "background-color: #FFFFFF;"

One editor background is now white.

Nope, those didn't work in TinyMCE.

What I discovered worked, and fixed the problem permanently, was to go to the TinyMCE editor plugin settings, and change the mode to Simple. I checked my article editor, and the background color was gone. I then went in and changed it back to Extended mode, and the background is now gone.

Now my settings for the TinyMCE plugin are:
Extended mode,
Template css classes: no,
Custom css classes: editor.css (no path)

BTW, editor.css contains only the styles I want to use in the editor, so I deleted all the ones Artisteer wrote to that file, and placed only my custom styles in it. (Those custom styles are also added to template.css).

Now everything works properly, I have my custom styles in the drop-down, and no background color in the editor.

Jeff, your solution worked for me.

Thanks.

Is this Joomla or Artisteer issue?

actually, had to abandon your solution jeff as I needed to see the effect in th editor of style changes and the editor.css file does not contain my artisteer styles so implemented sideny's fix from this thread:

http://www.artisteer.com/Default.aspx?post_id=111974&p=forum_post&forum_id=20

(basically, turn on high contrast and keep template.css).

This is a clumsy issue that needs to be fixed by one or both sides.

With Jeff's solution, i had to switch from yes to no and again from to yes to no and then it worked. Thanks Jeff!

Hi all,

I had the same problem. I did several tests and it definitely came from the Artisteer template. But I did none of the above. I when to the editor.css and changed the background-color to White (ffffff). I hope this helps. :-)

body
{
margin: 0 auto;
padding: 0;
background-color: #ffffff;

It's actually a Joomla issue... here's the easiest way that I've found to take care of it:

1. Go to Extensions » Plugin Manager
2. Open Editor - TinyMCE
3. Under Plugin Parameters, set Template CSS Classes to No.
4. Save and exit.

The problem with this method is you lose all normal article formatting. Also, the "Preview" is still showing the incorrect background color.
