Chrome Browser Notice (For Quick Reply Editor) - How to fix non-working space bar
Mod Version: 1.0.0, by BirdOPrey5 (IB Staff) BirdOPrey5 is offline
Developer Last Online: Apr 2021 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.x.x Rating: (2 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 40
Released: 05 Nov 2016 Last Update: 05 Nov 2016 Downloads: 135
Not Supported Uses Plugins Auto-Template Re-usable Code  

If you are not already aware the latest version of Chrome browser (Version 54.0.2840.71, possibly others) has introduced a bug or incompatibility with the version of CKEditor used in VB 4.x.

If a user attempts to use the "Reply With Quote" feature on an existing post and begins to type their reply under the existing quote without hitting the Enter key first, the space bar will not work.

The issue is talked about on vBulletin.com here: http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/forum...rking-on-reply

While this is not a true fix, it does display a notice above the quick reply editor advising Chrome users that they can fix the problem simply by hitting the Enter key. (See Screenshot.)



The actual text displayed is held in a Global phrase called chrome_editor_message_bop5 so it is easily edited or translated as needed using Phrase Manager in the Admin CP.

There are no options, just install it and it will become active. Disable or remove the product to stop using it.

Notice will only be displayed in Chrome browser and when the enhanced WYSIWYG editor is enabled in the user's options. The Standard Editor and Basic Editor do not have this bug.

The function that attempts to determine the browser version was publicly available, location it can be found is a comment in the Functions plugin.

This mod will only install on VB 4.x versions and is only useful with VB 4.x versions 4.1.12 and above. May not work on heavily customized styles.

Oh, and since none of this is relevant to support of the mod, any further arguments will be removed.

I have many issues with IE 11, so its a good advice to start fixing these problems to.
Wow!!! that's very cool.


Any way just joking, I am not writing here to say what must be done or not?


But please Admins you must remove all these post and mine to another new thread. At least we must respect Joe for his help until something changes.


Thanks and sorry for interfering

Thanks for your work mate.

This is only for Quick Reply Editor.
Is there a way to have this mod in the full editor too?

I installed this and it's working.

Edit: Actually, had to uninstall. Not sure why but certain pages won't load for me when it's enabled.

If you let the developer (Joe) know which pages won't load, he would have a better chance of addressing the issue if he knows what to look for.

Such as?

It's just a notice above the editor. Not sure what else you think should be done with it.

Installed it and the notice does indeed show above the quick reply for posts, but what about the quick reply for private messages? Actually that's where our users are having the space bar issue so that is where we need the notice. How can we make it appear there also?

Hey all,

I looked at putting it by PMs and while it is possible it is a lot of extra work. While I started looking at the code I had a thought.

As much as I like mods the reality of the situation is this- I think this is much more gracefully handled by the vBulletin Notices System.

My suggestion:

Go to Admin CP -> Notices -> Add New Notice

Title: Editor Notice
Notice HTML:
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Active, Persistent, and Dismissible all set to yes.

No reason to show it to guests they can't reply anyway so check the box for "User does not belong to usergroup" and select Unregistered / Not Logged In as the usergroup not to display it to and save changes.

I implemented this on my own site. I kept the mod installed as an extra reminder but the notice is good info for everyone. They can dismiss it and never see it again but they (may) remember to just hit enter and be done with it should they get the problem.

I'd be most curious if I can duplicate the issue.

Yep...Sorry, I meant to ask if any fix was forthcoming for this bug. My bad.

Adding this to to the bottom of editor_contents.css seems to get the space bar working with the WYSIWYG editor on my board.

The added blank lines that appear in the quoted post disappear on posting.

YMMV

Hey! This works.

The only problem is the issue still persists in PM's. Forum posting is fixed though when quoting.
