vBulletin 3.7x - Fix for IE7 prompt replacement

Beginning with vBulletin 3.65, following (ill-informed) reports of issues with Internet Explorer 7's prompts for links or images, the vBulletin team replaced these with a new uglified and clumsified built-in vBulletin prompt.

If you, like me, hate the new prompts and wish to revert to the Internet Explorer prompts, here's how:

Find in clientscript/vbulletin_textedit.js at lines 1177-1182:

this.show_prompt = function(dialogtxt, defaultval, forceltr)
var returnvalue;
if (is_ie7)

Replace line 1180 as follows:

if (is_ie7 && false)

Then find at lines 2829-2834:

this.insert_text(opentag + closetag, opentag.length, closetag.length);

if (is_ie7)

Replace line 2833 as follows:

if (is_ie7 && false)
