Try this and let me know if it still happens:
In the QE template find:
Replace it with:
THANK YOU SIR!
This seems to fix the problem. The admins post do not loose their signature now, and a user who had a post when he had no signature, can now edit, and the QE hack respects the new condition and adds the signature.
The final issue I have, has to do with the location of the window, which opens up for QE. Suppose I have a post and I hit the QE button. Then I cancel it. Then I hit QE again, and the window open a bit further to the left, than the first time. Cancel it again and hit QE again, and the window is almost 50% out of the screen. Something works incrementaly in the location of the window, as far as its horizontal positioning is concerned.
On the same issue, if the post's QE button, is too low on your screen, the QE window opens up below the button, so sometimes it hardly appears on the screen. I assume that if this is the case (QE button too far down), the window should open above it, instead of below it.
On another issue, could you please update the instructions on the following two issues:
- If one wants to give the user the ability to delete his post, what should one add to the showthread_quickedit template?
- If one wants to show the QE to people who can moderate and administrate, as well as the poster, what are the changes that need to be made? The ones descrined in post #9, seem to be outdated now. I also do not want to go with the method described in the early stages of this thread, using $bbuserinfo['usergroupid'] ==6 , I'd rather have can_moderate($forum[forumid]). In this case thought, there should be some changes in the signature handling, where $postinfo['signature'] should be used. I am not sure however, where these changes should occur. Any help?
Another issue, would it be possible to have a working "Cancel" button. The method of clicking outside the QE box is logical for programmers etc. but not so intuitive for end-users. Plus, sometimes clicking outside the box does not close it (if you click right next to the box, to its left or to its right) and you have to click again, above it or below it, to make it go.
Finally, if I may add my 2 Eurocents, I think that the QE button should be just before the Edit button. I think this is a more logical position than between the Quote and the Quick Reply buttons. I also took some time to make a QE button to match the other buttons in the standard vB installation. If you like it you may use it.
Have I clicked install? I think I have.
Thank you for a nice addition to my forum.
