1. Developer preset is active
2. Editing a content element with an IRRE field which has no elements yet. Click on "Create new Page Content" - then i get the message: The editor is being loaded. Please wait...

JS Console:
TypeError: ct is null ext-all-debug.js:11644
ReferenceError: HTMLArea is not defined editor-mode.js:16
ReferenceError: HTMLArea is not defined default-inline.js:16
ReferenceError: HTMLArea is not defined block-elements.js:16
TypeError: HTMLArea.I18N is undefined htmlarea.js:43

You can use jfmulticontent for example (View: Inline content). I have the same problem with my own extension.

3. When i save the content anyway the RTE is loaded without an error.

4. If i switch back to Production preset there is no problem with the RTE - even in the first new created IRRE child. After click on "Create new Page Content" the RTE is loaded.

It seems that this occurrs only in IRRE - RTEs.

Yes. I have the similar issue when I want to add content element with RTE from IRRE. Sometimes I can't even expand a content element with type 'text' which is using RTE.
I have the fallowing error messages in a console:
"ReferenceError: HTMLArea is not defined"
HTMLArea.EditorMode = Ext.extend(HTMLArea.Plugin, {...

...and the same error goes for "HTMLArea.TYPO3Link, HTMLArea.FindReplace, HTMLArea.FindReplace, HTMLArea.RemoveFormat, HTMLArea.DefaultClean, HTMLArea.ContextMenu, HTMLArea.UndoRedo, HTMLArea.CopyPaste, HTMLArea.I18N, HTMLArea.DefaultInline, HTMLArea.BlockElements, HTMLArea.CharacterMap" etc.

  • Status changed from New to Resolved

This fix was a bit harder to solve - we actually had to change the whole architecture of the IRRE resolving, which led to a breaking behaviour - that's why we solved this for v7 only (and could not backport this change to 6.2). Upgrading to v7 helps though. If you have further questions regarding this issue, feel free to contact me via Slack (
