TinyMCE is stripping my imagemap by removing USEMAP from the HTML.  I dont want to disable tiny.   I just want a way to cause TinyMCE to recognize USEMAP in the HTML without stripping it.  Can this be done?  Thanks!

This could be what your after

http://tinymce.moxiecode.com/wiki.php/Configuration:valid_elements

Looks like TinyMCE by default is set to strip the USEMAP from the HTML on save whilst using the editor.

Logical solution would be to remove the USEMAP reference in TINYMCE and it should work.

I stopped using TinyMCE due to issues like this and other edit strips, we started using JCE editor instead and havent looked back.

Another solution from the joomla forums


(i)TinyMCE for edit in the Plugin Manager (Extensions -> Plugin Manager) and set the parameters as follows:

(a) Functionality to Extended

(b) Code cleanup on save to Never or Front Only


(iii) You could also set the editor as No Editor in the Global Configurations and edit the article.

And finally the best solution

Open up the /plugins/editors/tinymce.php

// advimage
$advimage = $this->params->def('advimage', 1);
if ($advimage) {
   $plugins[]   = 'advimage';
   $elements[]   = 'img[class|src|border=0|alt|title|hspace|vspace|width|height|align|onmouseover|onmouseout|name|style]';
}

Open in new window


Add "|usemap" after "|style" (the very last attribute listed in img[class|src...).

SAve teh file and it should work
