Force Standard Editor for IE10 Users (Editor Workaround) for VB 4.x by BOP5
Mod Version: 1.00, by BirdOPrey5 (Moderator) BirdOPrey5 is offline
Developer Last Online: Jul 2015 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.x.x Rating: (7 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 61
Released: 03 Apr 2013 Last Update: Never Downloads: 213
Not Supported Uses Plugins Re-usable Code  

NO LONGER NECESSARY IN VB 4.2.1 or above.

Brought to you by BirdOPrey5 / Qapla.com

See Post #12 for a different solution, it lets the editor work in IE10

If you are an Admin of a VB4 site with the ckeditor (all versions since 4.1.4 I believe) you probably know that the VB4 editor is not compatible with Internet Explorer 10 (IE10) web browsers.

As IE10 becomes more popular this is a bigger issue for site administrators.

The good news is the "Standard Editor" in VB 4.x does work, it is only the WYSIWYG editor with the problem.

This simple singe plugin mod will force IE10 users, and only IE10 users to the Standard Editor no matter what they have chosen in their settings.

This should prevent complaints from users about the editor not working properly.

We hope this issue will get fixed in a future VB4 version, maybe 4.2.1, maybe later, at that time you can remove this product.

No documentation, no settings, just import the XML file and it is active, disable or remove the product and it stops working.

Installation Instructions:

Log into your Admin CP
Go to Add/Import Product under "Plugins & Products" on the side menu.
Click the "Choose File" button to find the attached product xml file.
Press "Import"
Done.

Thank you. This Mod is very useful for me for now though I will convert my site to Xenforo soon. I can't understand why Vbulletin Team have not released a bug fix for this.

You need to be more patient. It has only been reported as a bug for about 6 months now. You can't really expect vBulletin devs to fix things that quickly! </sarcasm>

BOP5 needs to fix the "You must 'Like' someone else's post before liking any more by BirdOPrey5." bug, it's really annoying.

Thanks guys... I wish I had thought of it sooner.

This has absolutely nothing to do on if the real fix will or will not be in 4.2.1- I have no inside information on that- just waiting and watching like everyone else.

I've been told by another forum member that simply adding this to the headinclude template will let the WYSIWYG editor work fine by telling IE10 to display as IE9.

I don't have immediate access to IE10 to test it, but if anyone wants to test, uninstall or disable this mod first.

Thanks Joe
At least you care about this bug more than vbulletin by trying to find a solution.

We appreciate that for you

It is working but all the pages will display as IE9 in IE10
Your plugin is much better
