Testing with Chrome
« on: July 02, 2011, 01:41 »
Following some issues with SMF 2.0 and the Chrome browser, I've been doing some testing myself.

I've reinstalled the WYSIWYG Quick Reply box (QR with smilies), and have found:

The URL pop up does not work on Chrome, using the QR box, but DOES work when using the Reply button, or the Preview button, from the QR box.

PC Pals

Quotes are now working in Chrome, with WYSIWYG QR box reinstalled:

Following some issues with SMF 2.0 and the Chrome browser, I've been doing some testing myself.

So, using Chrome myself, the only problem I can see is that the URL popup doesn't work when using the QR box, but by hitting Reply from posts, or Preview, from QR box, the URL popup will then work from the full post editor screen.

Are yours the same findings as mine, Gill?  Only, Clive is saying that the URL popup still doesn't work for him.

The URL popup?  I've never noticed that before.

The URL applet is knackered for me too (FF5).  I've even edited the code by hand but it still shows a full URL rather than a word or phrase with a link attached.  I'd suggest the new WYSIWYG feature needs some work.

It does, Rod, but I've had no trouble with manual hyperlinks:

Code: [Select]
[url=http://pc-pals.com]PC Pals[/url]
produces PC Pals

It's working for me now as well.  My fingers sometimes have a life of their own.   :blush:

OK, until the enhanced quick reply is updated by SMF, the best I can do for Chrome is:

   Quote button works fully, but only if the Quick Reply option in your Profile is set to 'Non-WYSIWYG (With BBC Buttons and Smilies)'

   Hyperlink (URL) popup works on full post editor, by using Reply button, or by using Preview from the QR box.

   Hyperlink (URL) popup does not currently work from QR box, but can be created manually by using the following code:

Code: [Select]
[url=http://www.pc-pals.com]PC Pals[/url]
which produces:  PC Pals

Never heard of that one, Dave.  There are definitely some compatibility issues with Chrome, which I hope will get sorted soon.  :sigh:

Yes, everything seems to work correctly in this Iron browser.  Worth a try, Clive?  It looks exactly the same as Chrome, but seems to have a banner ad on the home page.  I haven't checked it out thoroughly, just compatibility with here.
