Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: Passing value to richtext editor

Posted by Antonio Pisano on
Not sure if this can be of help, but how is richtext value saved internally? Richtext widgets treat their values as a list in the form {content mime_type} and might misbehave if they are fed with content only.

Antonio - thank you - I believe this may lead me to address the issue. And please excuse what may be novice questions as I mostly deal with frontend applications.

I followed the entry down to the table public.cr_revisions and the column for my text field is labeled content and its type is text. To me this seems correct; however, if you go three lines up there is mime_type with type "character varying(200) and modifiers "default 'text/plain/::character varying. Is this why its not behaving correctly?
