When I change to the default dnn editor, it doesn't stick.

If I go into the control panel, forums, features, html input, editor, and change it to dnn default, it just changes it back to text box all on it's own. I have caching turned off. Why would it just revert?

It’s a bug in 05.00.04. Every time you save the html input box setting it will set the 'EDITORTYPE' setting value to 0 (textbox).

In my case I could solve it through the following sql script.

UPDATE activeforums_Settings
SET
  SettingValue =  '2'
WHERE (SettingName = 'EDITORTYPE')
GO

This will change for all forums the editor to the default DotNetNuke editor.
I don’t know if this will work on other forums so if you want to try it make a backup before you start.

That worked on the site I've been having the most trouble with. I just ran it from host > sql

Thank you!

This definitely seems to continue to work for me. I've already done it on a few sites now. Worked every time. Thanks again PL!

Just found that I had the same problem. After several hours stuffing around trying to find a cause I remembered seeing this Topic.

Thanks for the script. Seems to be holding
