Default A couple issues FYI

I come here to VEF mostly on weekends and I noticed a couple issues on January 19, 20 and 21, so I don't know if this actually started before that.
Same as I don't know if this is related to a forum update or to my browser, Firefox.

1) Main issue was, I couldn't post anymore. I clicked on the Reply or Quote button and the usual posting box showed up, but although I could write a reply, when I clicked on "Submit reply" I got this message:
Quote:
The message you have entered is too short. Please lengthen your message to at least 1 characters.
Also I couldn't use any of the text formatting options; clicking on bold, italics, or any other text formatting didn't work.

So I went to my "User CP", then "Edit options", and at the bottom on "Message editor interface" I chose "Basic editor"... and it worked, I was able to post again.


2) Maybe not an issue, but something weird: at the same time, whenever I clicked on the "Thanks" button anywhere, the page reloaded, went to the top and back to the post I just thanked. Yes, the "Thanks" showed up, but this is the first time it reacts this way.

I'm posting this mostly in case anyone else is experiencing any of these annoying issues, and as I said I don't know if it has something to do with a forum update, a forum plug-in update, a browser update, or anything else. At least I'm able to post again, which was my main concern.

Thanks for reading.



PS: just tried and the "Standard Editor" option works fine too. It's the Enhanced interface (WYSIWYG) that won't let me post.

Same here for the last few weeks, page reload after thanks.

The WYSIWYG editor in this version of VB is buggy, use the standard editor instead.

You both have a script blocked that is needed for the thanks button to work correctly. One of the lists in AdBlockPlus causes this. I switched to uBlock Origin because of this problem a while ago to avoid constantly having to allow scripts when the lists in ABP update.

Thank you very much, that hint caused me to investigate this. This has been annoying me for weeks.

For me it was the add on "privacy badger" that blocked scripts from yui.yahooapis.com. I allowed it and thanking works fine again.

Addendum:
It was not that easy, I had to rebuild my Firefox profile and reinstall uBlock Origin and the Privacy Badger.
But now thanking works again as expected!

I'm using uBlock Origin too, stopped using Adblock Plus like a year ago. The Thanks button works, my thanks appear on the list, it's just that it does this weird reloading of the page, but I can live with that.

The standard editor lets me post, it just won't let me use any formatting options like bold, italics and all that. No problem at all, I can do that manually.


As I said not actual problems, just weird issues. Thanks everyone for the feedback.

Standard editor with extra formatting controls (option 2) gives you all of the extra formatting options.

In uBlock, look at the lists you are using. Easylist is the one that causes script issues here.
