[resolved] [Plugin: Front-end Editor] Blockquotes removed (9 posts)

    CK MacLeod:

    Absolutely terrific plug-in - PROBLEM though on 1.4: Enabling edit single paragraph function removes blockquote formatting.

    PS - if it helps, my blog is on WP 2.8.5 - though the theme is older, minimally customized. The bq formatting problem was viewed only in Firefox.

    Could you paste the exact content of your post, as entered from the admin area?

    You mean from the editor, right - under the HTML tab? It affected all posts. Here's the most recent one, which, as you can see, consists almost entirely of a blockquote in two paragraphs:

    <blockquote>The Iranian regime has been very clever in its development of a nuclear weapons program. Using a horizontal model where they first lined up all the necessary "ingredients" for advanced nuclear weapons --heavy water plants, experimental reactors, plutonium refining plants and uranium enrichment facilities -- means that they can shoot directly for a thermonuclear device instead of toying around with a Fat Man or Little Boy like we did in the 1940s. North Korea's program was vertical, doing just enough to create some sort of functional device. It was a dud. Iran's will not be.
    
    This is bad news. It means that as soon as Iran successfully tests a bomb (if they even test one, remember the first time we detonated a uranium gun-barrel type bomb was over Hiroshima, so reliable was the design) they will immediately be able to mate the weapon to one of their Shahab missiles, capable of reaching Israel. If Iran develops a solid-fueled rocket as well, they'll have a potential thermonuclear launch-on-warning capability just like the five members of the Security Council.</blockquote>

    That's all. It affected a single-paragraph blockquote as well (I say that because there was another plug-in I stopped using because it screwed up all blockquotes after first one by inserting a closing tag via Java on all paragraphs, screwing up multi-paragraph bqs).

    Try the Development Version (1.4.1a).

    The Development Version doesn't fix the problem: It leaves a thin gray highlight the width of a blockquote (probably leftover from the blockquote full format under this stylesheet) where the blockquote should begin, otherwise removes blockquote formatting.

    That's weird, since I tested it with the exact code you provided.

    Could you paste the generated code, as seen on the front end?

    I presume you mean just the post (rather than the entire page!). It looks obvious that the /div tag interferes with the blockquote tag.

    <div class="entry-content">
    <p><div id='fee_5084#0' class='front-ed-the_content front-ed'><blockquote>
    </div></p><p><div id='fee_5084#1' class='front-ed-the_content front-ed'>The Iranian regime has been very clever in its development of a nuclear weapons program.

North Korea’s program was vertical, doing just enough to create some sort of functional device. It was a dud. Iran’s will not be.

    Hm... I think it might be because I'm on WP 2.9-rare and you're using 2.8.5.

    I'm afraid you'll have to either upgrade to 2.9 or disable editing single paragraphs from the plugin settings page.

    I don't usually adopt the latest upgrades until they're "official."

    It's not a big deal, obviously, if it's not an easy fix (or fixable at all), though I think a cautionary note of some kind might save people time. Best - don't know if it's doable - might be if it detected the version in use and grayed out the option if pre-2.9. Anyway, it's far too useful - really, one of the best plug-ins I've installed - to be declared "only compatible with 2.9" just over this minor feature.
