#512 closed defect (fixed)

Editing a link doesn't work, if link contains format tags

Reported by: xinha.20.artus83@… Owned by: gogo
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: Xinha Core Version:
Severity: minor Keywords:


In the current version a link can't be edited, if there are formats , like bold, defined within the link text. In this case you are told, that you have to select a text, before you can create a link. This happens, because the function _createLink doesn't search in deeper nodes for a link and so doesn't find it, if for example a <b> node is below the <a> node.

The context-menu plugin on the other hand searches to deeper nodes . So it happens, that you are shown the option to alter an link in the context menu, but then get an error, that you have to select text before creating a link.

Chaning this code in _createLink:

      if (/^img$/i.test(link.tagName))
        link = link.parentNode;
      if (!/^a$/i.test(link.tagName))
        link = null;


      while (link && !/^a$/i.test(link.tagName))
        link = link.parentNode;

should solve the problem.
