TinyMCE not working on IE 7

Happy new year folks,  09′ started off for me with a very strange bug. I was working on a form and decided to use TinyMCE in it for multi-line text editing and it was working A-OK in FF3, Chrome and Safari but not on IE 7. God that was a real pain in the butt going through all the javascript and I had absolutely no idea what was happening. It turned out that I had

<script language=”javascript” type=”text/javascript” src=”../tinymce/jscripts/tiny_mce/tiny_mce.js”></script>

this line in both master page and content page. I removed one of them and walla! it started working.

I hope some of you folks might find this post useful some day!

  1. Please add this line in your script

    // Replace values for the template plugin
    template_replace_values : {
    username : “Some User”,
    staffid : “991234”
