Perch 3 - Ckeditor not loading for blocks

I'm having an issue with text areas that use the ckeditor and are included in a block region. I believe this is only happening when there are more than 1 ckeditor in the block. When I add the block to the blocks region, the editors are not instantiated, instead i just get a native textarea with no editor.

What i need to do is to save the page. When the page saves, even if the content is blank, the editors load properly. it seems its only happens when they're added to the page via JS.

This is not a random 1 off thing. it happens every single time without question. I sometime (rarely) get a JS error popup in the Console, but it will still happen silently.

I have included the simplest template example I have that produces the error, although every block template with multiple ckeditors does it.

Any Ideas?

Block Template:

<perch:content id="heading_en" label="Heading English" type="text" suppress="true" />
<perch:content id="heading_fr" label="Heading French" type="text" suppress="true" />
<perch:content id="background_image" type="image" bucket="side_bar_box" label="Heading Side Image" suppress="true" />
<perch:content id="paragraph_en" label="Paragraph English" type="textarea" html="true" editor="ckeditor" suppress="true" bucket="editor" size="m" />
<perch:content id="paragraph_fr" label="Paragraph French" type="textarea" html="true" editor="ckeditor" suppress="true" bucket="editor" size="m" />
<div class="sidebar-box header-text-box" >
<h4 style="background-image:url('<perch:content id="background_image" />')"><perch:if id="lang" match="eq" value="en"><perch:content id="heading_en"/><perch:else /><perch:content id="heading_fr"/></perch:if></h4>
<perch:if id="lang" match="eq" value="en">
    <perch:content id="paragraph_en" html="true" />
<perch:else />
    <perch:content id="paragraph_fr" html="true" />
</perch:if>

</div>

What does the error in the console say?

What is the JS error you get?

That's the thing it pops the error sporadically. And I haven't been able to get it for a bout a week now.

But it was

Uncaught Error: Dropzone already attached. at new t (9.9.c4c70b8….js:1) at HTMLDivElement.<anonymous> (9.9.c4c70b8….js:2) at Function.each (vendor.c4c70b8….js:2) at me.fn.init.each (vendor.c4c70b8….js:2) at me.fn.init.undefined.e.fn.dropzone (9.9.c4c70b8….js:2) at HTMLDivElement.<anonymous> (9.9.c4c70b8….js:1) at Function.each (vendor.c4c70b8….js:2) at me.fn.init.each (vendor.c4c70b8….js:2) at p (9.9.c4c70b8….js:1) at 9.9.c4c70b8….js:1 t @ 9.9.c4c70b8….js:1 (anonymous) @ 9.9.c4c70b8….js:2 each @ vendor.c4c70b8….js:2 each @ vendor.c4c70b8….js:2 undefined.e.fn.dropzone @ 9.9.c4c70b8….js:2 (anonymous) @ 9.9.c4c70b8….js:1 each @ vendor.c4c70b8….js:2 each @ vendor.c4c70b8….js:2 p @ 9.9.c4c70b8….js:1 (anonymous) @ 9.9.c4c70b8….js:1 dispatch @ vendor.c4c70b8….js:3 v.handle @ vendor.c4c70b8….js:3 trigger @ vendor.c4c70b8….js:4 (anonymous) @ vendor.c4c70b8….js:4 each @ vendor.c4c70b8….js:2 each @ vendor.c4c70b8….js:2 trigger @ vendor.c4c70b8….js:4 success @ 12.12.c4c70b8….js:1 u @ vendor.c4c70b8….js:3 fireWith @ vendor.c4c70b8….js:3 n @ vendor.c4c70b8….js:4 (anonymous) @ vendor.c4c70b8….js:4

I don't think that error should be occurring on the current version.

I haven't been able to get the console error for a while, but the problem still persists, just silently. The ckeditors are not initializing and there is no je error. If you save the region, the editors are then initialized properly.

Yes, I think that error is probably unrelated and is a red herring in this instance.

Yeah. It's why I didn't include it initially.

Hi Drew, I know you're a busy guy.. just wondering though if you've had any time to look into this?

I've not look at it yet, no.

having the same issue now when trying to use multiple blocks with ckeditor, only shows up for the first one.
