smf and Microsoft Edge

I just upgraded my computer to Windows 10 and it came with a new browser, Microsoft Edge. I can't use any BBCs or smileys when I'm on this browser. Edge does let you open a site on IE and when I do that, I'm still able to use the BBCs and smileys. I was going to ask for some help at a Microsoft site but I'm able to use BBCs there so I'm thinking the problem has something to do with the smf software and perhaps not working right with Edge.

are you using the WYSIWYG editor or the normal one?

Its known issue that IE11 is not working with WYSIWYG editor of SMF 2.0, its also normal for EDGE as well.

because -- as everyone except Microsoft knows.... their browser is a piece of junk that won't even meet that standards set by the W3 committees.

Except Edge is not IE. It's not even the same engine. It's actually a decent browser, however it still needs some kinks ironed out. Like any new software, it's not going to be 100% upon first release.

yup... I can confirm that the idiots at Microsquish have done it again... breaking things that work for everyone else because they assume that everyone will follow THEIR standard

FYI -- for anyone who thinks I am being hard on microsquish (because, as someone else said to me, the wysiwyg editor is broken in ALL modern browsers)
This is the NORMAL EDITOR - NOT THE WYSIWYG



edit
hmmm..... it might be javascript related...  I suspect that edge disabled javascript by default and microquish thought it was "dangerous" enough to hide the setting...

From what I read, Edge is better than IE, but is not good enough to be at the level of Firefox or Chrome, so, Microsoft is doing some things well, but as you expect, it will not do all the things well, always have to break the standards to set their own rules that nobody should follow.

I am running windows 10 and explorer 11, SMF 2.0.10. I do not appear to have any issues with the WYSIWYG editor when using 11.
I only appear to have issues with the smiley set and BBC's when I am using Edge.
Looking forward to following this topic.

I don't know what you mean by the "normal one." I'm using the WYSIWYG editor that came with smf and it worked fine in IE. Still works in IE but not on Edge.

Kindred

Yes, I already confirmed that it is an issue.... -- but the issue seems to be related to some setting in Edge (possibly regarding javascript - if I could ever find any setting in edge that related to that)

I've already had complaints about this...  None of the flags in Edge have any effect, including all the developer ones I've managed to find.

yup... Microsoft definitely broke something....


EVERY other browser continues to work, including IE11 -- so I am not sure what they broke or how we can 'fix" it.

Edge's console gives the following javascript error when attempting to click on a smiley:

SCRIPT5007: Unable to get property 'insertSmiley' of undefined or null reference
eval code (3) (1,1)

Tried turning on Javascript in the hidden settings** in Edge but to no avail.

it seems that, in their infinite quest to be more stupid, Microsoft decided to try to out-do Chrome and has modified and "tweaked" their javascript processor.

Like most microsoft efforts, this apparently means that their javascript processor has broken standards and will need special treatment to be handled. Unfortunately, I have not yet found any clear description of what they DID or how to work around their idiocy.

They've actually done a good job with their new browser and operating system - this is coming from a Chrome addict.

I still use Chrome, BUT, I've replaced Firefox with Edge as my secondary browser.

Chas Large

Firefox 40 is now much faster and beats both Chrome and Edge hands down IMO.
