When I am editing a new node and I go to preview the content, the trimmed version shows but I scroll down to edit the body, ckeditor is not there and all that shows is the source code. Anyone have any ideas as to why this is happening? Screenshot attached.

Currently running drupal 6.22 and have yet to updgrade to 2.4

I'm having the same problem. It disappears in "review changes" from the diff module as well.

I am having same issue. Below instances when the ckeditor does not appear -
1. When validation error occurs
2. When previewing, create or edit form. on edit form in case of validation or preview the body field shows source code

please check if this problem exists in latest version (or DEV) of CKEditor for drupal module.
Please also write if you see any errors in Firebug (Firefox add-on) console.

Hi Michal,

There are no errors in firebug console. Also I installed both below versions one at a time.


Also I cleared browser+ drupal caches too after installation. But still no luck.

I tried checking the view source of page after validation error comes. There is no ckeditor.js reference present in it.
