hyperlink button gives different options for users versus admin
« on: February 10, 2021, 11:02:45 AM »
So,

If I'm logged in as admin and press the hyperlink button I get the BB code http:// to enter the link and/or make a title.

If I'm logged in as a regular user (I do that to test things) I just get "enter the link" and then the entire link is a hyperlink--no url tags and ability to make a title.


I have 'titled links' v1.5 installed, and it works great until I noticed it's not working greatly.

Code: [Select]
[url] link [/url]
Something doesn't sounds right in your description. Can you upload screenshots?

 maybe you have the wysiwyg editor enabled for the user account and not for the admin account?
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.

Thanks for the link.  I'll move it over there, but these are the screens:


The admin goes right to BB code [url]; the regular user, the "paste a link".


Both happen when pressing the 'earth' hyperlink button.

Could be--if I knew where to check  :laugh:.  That hadn't occurred to me. 

Yep.  Reset the clock; put us at DEFCON 5.

Would have been nice if, at some point in 2.0 updates, wysiwyg had been removed (along with admin db backup).

You don't like the BBcode options?  Or, is there a smoother way to do it?

Core wysiwyg has long been known to be buggy and is not recommended, it should have been pulled somewhere along the way.  It's been rebuilt for 2.1, haven't tried it.

na the wysiwyg in 2.x is janky  :P (no offense smf)
2.1 fixes it but 2.x is just bugged/outdated/crappy (it's not just smf, it's like that on some other sites I've used), trying to use it will cause all kinds of errors
smfhacks has a paid wysiwyg to fix 2.x (from my understanding it's the same one being used in 2.1)

just disable the wysiwyg
admin > forum > posts and topics
Disable WYSIWYG editor

you'll still have the bbcode options without the wysiwyg not playing nice

see if that doesn't help fix the issue

How stable is 2.1?

I'm just getting the membership starting to come in; I'd rather risk losing some downtime now rather than later.

It's still in RC.  I'm not using it on my forums or client forums.  You shouldn't have any downtime upgrading from 2.0 to 2.1 once it goes final.

I mean...it's stable enough for an rc...but it is not a stable finally release....
there will be bugs and whatnots....
and there's no way to do patch updates in rc versions, so with each new rc release to update it you will lose any customizations you have done to the template and any mods installed....you will be starting from scratch each new update (all data will remain but no mods or theme edits)

and since it is still an rc, there are limited themes and mods available....

once it is finalized updating from 2.x to 2.1 should be simply enough
