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

vB Version: 4.x.x Rating: (2 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 40
Released: 05 Nov 2016 Last Update: 05 Nov 2016 Downloads: 130
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.

In ckeditor.js there's actually a function to insert the enter key

If that were to be used after clicking reply with quote that would probably solve the issue. Unfortunately I don't know enough JavaScript to modify things myself.
Any update or solution?

Check your PHP error log right after you get a white screen. It will be one of the most recent errors listed in the log. That will help figure out the issue. My guess, perhaps, out of memory, but wild guess without actual error.
