cForms plugin conflict

There is a known issue with the WordPress cForms plugin breaking the TinyMCE text editor. It is a issue that is common with a lot of plugins that use the editor but there is a quick and simple fix for it. The issue and the fix are outlined below.

The Issue:

If you notice that your TinyMCE editor is missing all the buttons and there is not Visual/HTML view tab available, this is caused by the cForms plugin. The reason for this problem is the cForms plugin which creates a JavaScript error in the WordPress dashboard because it is calling to an undefined variable “purl”.

The Solution:

In your WordPress dashboard, under cForms > Global Settings > WP Editor Button Support, there is a checkbox where you can tick “Fix TinyMCE error” which will solve the problem.

Alternatively, the solution is to install our custom cForms Fixes plugin. Simply download, install and activate the cForms fixes plugin to bring your broken TinyMCE visual editor back to life.
