Quote Breaker

vB Version: 4.2.x Rating: (2 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 17

Not Supported Uses Plugins Auto-Template Additional Files Translations  

Overview:

This product adds a button to the bottom of your ckeditor (posts/PMs only) that allows for easily breaking quotes. Consider that you have quoted someone's post, and you wish to address multiple points within that post. With this product, you put your cursor at the end of the first point you wish to address, and click the "Quote Break" button, and an ending QUOTE tag is generated, 4 newlines, and a new beginning QUOTE tag that matches the beginning tag of the current quote your cursor is in. Then your cursor is located in between the two generated tags, ready for you to enter your text addressing the first point in the quoted post.

In the settings, you may select which usergroups have access to this product's features. You may also specify users by username that you wish to exclude from the product.

In the "Source Mode" editor, any open text formatting BBCodes are closed in the closed quote, and are reopened in the newly opened quote. You can add any BBCodes you wish to add to the list of tags that are supported. You are given 4 options in the product settings for "WYSIWYG Mode" support, and I highly recommend you choose the option that displays the "Quote Break" button to all users, but alerts users in "WYSIWYG Mode" to switch to "Source Mode" before using the button. I have made an attempt to support the WYSIWYG editor, but the results are inferior compared to the "Source Mode" editor.

Suppose you have quoted a post that contains an unordered list, and you wish to address each point separately. Put your cursor after the first point you wish to address:



Now click the "Quote Break" button, and you get:



Now you can enter your response to this first point, and then continue with each successive point.

Everything is fully phrased.

Updates:

Version 1.1:
  • Resolved potential conflicts between BBCode tags.

Version 1.2:
  • Moved "Quote Break" button to the far left, and the "Restore Auto-Saved Content" button to its right.
  • Added setting to allow control over the position of the "Restore Auto-Saved Content" button in case you change the width of the "Quote Break" by editing the phrase containing its text value.

Version 1.3:
  • If WYSIWYG editor is disabled, or Standard Mode is forced on users, then button tooltip no longer displays message about Standard Mode being recommended/required.

Version 1.3.1:
  • Fixed bug where CSS/Javascript wasn't loaded when quick reply is off, but quick edit is on.

Compatibility:

Tested and working on VB 4.2.x and may work on all 4.x versions of vBulletin.

This looks like a very useful addition. I know that I have had to 'fix' to many incorrectly 'hand quoted' posts.

One change to suggest: Move the Quote Break button to the far left.

It's a little too much like a Submit button in the bottom middle of the text box at present.

I originally had it on the far left, but then it gets in the way of the "Restore Auto-Saved Content" button, so that's why it's where it's at.

edit: I can move the "Restore Auto-Saved Content" button...look for an update real soon.

Few users would figure this out without a guide I'm afraid.

A better system would be to highlight a part of a post with the mouse, press a quote button to quote that specific part in quick reply, then highlight another part press quote button again to add that quote etc...

Missing button

Running vBulletin 4.2.3 Patch Level 2.

Installed fine, but I'm not seeing the "Restore Auto-Saved Content" button, or is that from another MOD that I don't have installed?

That is something native to vBulletin (unless you have disabled it by setting "Auto-Save Content" to 0).

You will see that button if there is auto-saved content that can be restored, such as when you leave a page without submitting your post.

No, we have Auto-Save Content set to 60 seconds. Makes sense now that I think about it.

I believe that's the default value, and is what we use on several sites. For my screenshot, I purposefully aborted a post so that the button would be there to show that it has been moved to the right to accommodate the "Quote Break" button.

Thanks MarkFL, downloaded. It's good to see new mod for vb4 and not just find all obsolete.
