    The Buttons will not display in IE8 and who knows what else....

    Please fix.

    Also, could you create an "options" page, for those of us that only want the form to display in the Comments, and not in BBPress?

    I prefer using the Toolbar plugin for BBPress.
    Your plugin causes BOTH to be displayed.



  2. I checked on IE 9 and it seemed fine. Can you share a screenshot of what's wrong?

    And yes, I can make bbPress an option :) good idea!

  3. Okay, went and found an IE 8 install to play on. Yikes.

  4. ETA - bbPress is optional now in the dev version: http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/basic-comment-quicktags.zip

    Working on the IE thing. Looks like Marc's (whom I forked) has the same issue. Bummer!

  5. Okay. 1.1 released, SHOULD fix it (did on my sites at least). Some IE wasn't following standard rules. Go figure.

    Ya.... know what you mean.

    Hey, thanks much for the work. You're the first plugin developer to actually act and ever respond on any of my responses in ever. :) (been installing and testing a bunch of plugins)

    Thanks again.

    hmmm.... Still doesn't seem to be working in IE8.
    I've cleared caches, browser history, etc.????

    BTW.... Is there any existing listing so a person can "add" more buttons?
    You should indicate those and the instructions if so.

  9. Can you see it on http://demo.trepmal.com/?p=1#comments ?

    You'd have to edit the code (it's in the quicktags.js file) to add more buttons. The only ones I might consider adding are ol/ul/li. Most people just never used 'em, from what I've see, or they know HTML.

    1. Yes, it DOES show on that website using IE8. Although I did get a security notice and block, by IE telling me the page is trying to open a "scripted window". I do have the Pop-up Blocker actually OFF, so must be some additional security setting in IE.

    Maxthon and Firefox still see it fine.

    2. So, are you saying "all available/known" additional buttons are indicated in the quicktags.js?

  11. That's so weird. I think it's clashing with some other JS on ONE of my sites (it was working, I'm trying to dig into why it stopped working on test.ipstenu.org ...)

    The buttons, yes, are all in quicktags.ja :)

    The lines that have this:
    buttons: "link,em,strong"

    That says to activate the build in buttons for that. You can also use ul,ol,li,code,img.

    The one that says this:

    Is to change 'blockquote' into 'quote' to make it a little shorter :)

    (there are three quicktags calls because the ID of various fields are different. id: "comment", is comments, bbp_reply_content and bbp_topic_content are bbpress. Eventually I'll go back and add in BuddyPress as well, just to be that way.)

    Which buttons were you thinking of adding, and why? (I only added the ones I see folks use, but if there's a strong case to add more, I would totally do that. Except NOT image. It often only works for admins, so there's no point.)

    I think the "default" buttons you have on it are just right like you said.
    However, it would be good to indicate that the client CAN add more, and provide simple instructions, or a better way would be to create a simple admin page so the client themselves can just "checkbox" on and off the options they want.

    You do already practically have that functioning already given my last request, just add a few more calls, and create your own settings page instead.

    Hey, why limit things right? Your plugin should be more popular than it is. So, I would look forward to just a simple settings page. Then you could create "two screenshots" to attract people. One promotes the "minimal" version like you have already, and then another shows ALL available options a full editor. Thus, people can then choose what direction they want to go.

    As to the IE8 bug..... Look forward to you fixing that.
    BTW, don't know if the weird script you are using to identify the fields, website, email, comment etc.... That might be what's interfering? And if that is what's interfering, I wouldn't worry about it (unless something else could do the same), because I've never seen anyone use that particular script, so no need to waste your time fixing that I would think.

    Thanks much... :)

    Found a BUG.....

    In your disabling of BBPress, you missed something.
    The edit bar won't show on the Topics pages, but it does show in the "Reply" pages.

    It also shows in the "Edit" page.

    See here: http://www.ldsfaqs.com/forums/forum-topic/erterwtwe/

  14. IE8 not working is a bug.

    Not having options to pick and chose which items you get to see isn't a bug, it's a feature request which, since I do this for free and have no need for it, I won't be doing.

    The disabling not 'fully' working also isn't a bug, it's an oversight (yes the terms matter).

    I'm not using a script to determine the fields persey, I'm defining them explicitly based on page type. bbPress running as a CPT makes it more complicated.

  15. BTW, I recommend http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/comment-form-quicktags/ if you ONLY want tags on posts, and want to be able to change them around.

    1. Never said feature requests were a bug, just asked if you could simply at minimum list those additional options for us (instructions), and how to enable them if we wanted, or if you wanted, to simple create a checkbox page as you already started doing, which doesn't seem like would take that much work.

    Sorry if I asked you to do something. Goodness, you're practically the only plugin developer to respond to any of my some 20 comments, and then I still get attitude in the end. :(

    2. Okay, that's nice you call it an oversight. However, it still doesn't work like it should, thus it's STILL a bug.

    3. Thank you for the suggestion, I'll look at that. However, so you know, before I tried to help you a little with your plugin to improve it and fix it, I had already found a good working plugin for comments that did everything I needed, that's actually more advanced.

    Thus, contrary to your belief, I "didn't NEED to waste my time either", like you now don't feel like wasting your time improving your plugin. I just thought I would be nice and help you with your plugin as others have helped me.

    MCEComments..... is that nice plugin I had found before even talking to you.

    Anyway, wish you well.... Thanks at least for trying to support your own plugin. :(

    update: Oh, I had checked that plugin already, and it wouldn't work. Didn't show on the comments. It also isn't supported. Also tried to talk to him to help him and the rest of us.

  17. I didn't say 'waste' time, you did. Twice.

    I just want to make sure you understand the expectations here. I do appreciate your suggestions, but some of them I'm just not going to do because I, personally, don't want to have to support it. I will fix the bbPress thing (now that I see why it's being an idiot). And making it optional is a good suggestion (which is why I thakned you, and credited you the idea in the change log).

    That would be great.... No problem, and thanks.

    I'm actually hoping you're able to fix it. Might need to use it still, encountered a problem with other stuff.

    Anyway, wish you well.

    Ya, I see it still doesn't work in IE8....

    Anyway, take care.

  20. I think I'm just going to light IE 8 on fire at this point.... Grrr.
