I have tried to integrate rich to rails_admin. I have successfully done it before. But with last stable versions I have got a strange issue:

Unsupported field datatype: rich_editor

Some folk had this issue as well and created a question on SO for it: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/13070784/fail-to-integrate-ckeditor-in-rails-admin-gem-use-gem-rich

But so far, no answers are there.

I have created an issue in the rich github repo as well:
kreativgebiet/rich#80, I have pasted my stack trace there.

I am not sure if the issue is in rich or rails_admin, but so far I have been able to confirm, the syntax which is used by rich for registering new field_type to rails_admin is OK.

Could this have been caused by the recent changes related to JSON security as is listed here? https://github.com/sferik/rails_admin#action-required-security-issue

Thanks for any help!

Kind regards

any update?


Make sure that gem 'rails_admin' is placed before gem 'rich', because rich checks existence of constant RailsAdmin on its first load.
