Support » Fixing WordPress » placing quicktags

  • When I’m creating a new blog entry I do the hard work locally then copy and paste into WP. But when I try to insert image links or URL links using quicktags the tags always go to the end of the text rather than to the insertion point. Is there a way to change the behavior so the tag is inserted at the insertion point?

  • You have to click at the place where you want your quicktags inserted… (sounds as stupid as your problem, no offence).
    And what do you mean by “hard work”?

    I’ve been clicking the insertion point where I want to tag to go, but the tag still goes to the end of the entry.
    By “hard work” I mean composing and editing the text of the entry.

    What borwser are you using? It works fine for me in FF0.8.

    OmniWeb 5.0, beta 6 (OS X). Lemme try Safari and see…

    OmniWeb 5.0… how about using lynx or wget next time? (*sarcastic*)
    afaik wp’s quicktags works fine on
    winblows : ie6, latest FF, latest mozilla, latest netscape, myie2, opera
    mac : FF, safari

    I tried it on Safari and Camino and no luck. Camino wouldn’t even draw the WP window correctly, let along place the tags where I want them. I haven’t tried IE for OS X b/c I think I read somewhere I shouldn’t even try that one…


    Accually Quicktags do not work at all in Netscape 7 on Windows. Is there any way to fix this. I really would to stay away from IE. Thanks



    Well generally we are all on Firefox. Might suit you.

    I’ve had the same issue in Safari as well. It means extra cursor work when typing, which is what quicktags is supposed to eliminate right? Also… switching over to Firefox isn’t something I want to do. I’ve had way too much frustration trying to integrate my bookmarks with Firefox. There are a few other things that bug me about the interface as well- that I don’t need to go into here. I’ll test with it, but I don’t want to work in it. Frankly, I’m waiting for the bugs to get worked out in Flock and then maybe I’ll switch over to that instead.

    But has anyone else come up with a fix for this wierd little problem in Safari. I don’t care so much about using quicktags, but it seems a few plugins use quicktags, which is why it made it necessary for me to hack the code so they’d be visible in Safari.

    There is no fix for the problem. It is caused by a bug in Safari’s javascript support. The next time you are in your Admin interface with active Quicktags in Safari, you may want to submit a bug report to the Safari developers.
