Boofo, I did try multiple code boxes.

It might have been HTML in the code box. I saw HTML was actually parsing AS HTML !

Everyone should upgrade to 1.2 ASAP!

Version 1.0 can be exploited if malicious users sent an iframe or javascript code in a pm.

This has been fixed in version 1.2... Also for those running 4.1.12 or above previews will now show in the user cp as well as the inbox itself.

Sorry about that, I guess I went overboard on the security to change all characters to HTML entities.

For now if you want to edit the two plugins: PM Previews Main Code and PM Previews in Notifications

Find the line:

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

and change it to:

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

(do for each plugin.)

Otherwise I will release an update later today to fix it for non-latin Languages.

Thanks Joe .. working perfect

Another question
Can I change the direction of the preview window?

For LTR languages, it is correct:
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/attac...2&d=1327457397

But for RTL, the direction should be changed.
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/attac...5&d=1337418518

Is it possible?

By preview window, do you mean the yellow box?

Sorry I'm not very familiar with RTL issues so I apologize if I am asking dumb questions...



I can't read the text but it certainly looks Right-Justified... (Starting on the Right) - Are you saying it's supposed to start on the Left? Or are the letters themselves backwards (in reverse order?)

Do the thread previews work correctly in the forum?

Appreciate you effort Joe
Actually I am meaning the preview popup itself.

In LTR, there is a gap in the right (see the green rectangle)
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/attac...1&d=1337526605

In RTL, there is no gap:
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/attac...1&d=1337526605

It should be something like this:
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/attac...1&d=1337526605

Thanks again Joe

Thank you for the thorough explanation but there is nothing in the code that could control that. I would imagine it's the web browser making the "choice" where the preview gets displayed. It's usually based on where the mouse pointer is when the preview gets activated.

Anyone know what the Preview Length is set to on here (vBulletin.org Forum)? I wanted to go by that.
