RTE disabled on the forums

Recommended Posts

We have detected a very serious bug with IPB's Rich Text Editor and so we have disabled it.

It seems that, at random a new topic does not get through and returns the error "You must submit a post" despite all fields and Post Preview working properly.

It will remain disabled until we can identify the error.

Maybe ipb (if its in their code) could put $1,337 in Neowins bear fund. lol

Odd......I wonder if it has anything to do with topics somewhat mysteriously being bumped (I have seen topics in the mini-spy that are days old since the last post but are above topics that have new posts in them....but that may be something else entirely).

I had it disabled anyway, but I'll remember that.

I guess this is IPB specific and not because of the hundreds of mods that Neowin installed.

I thought it was Google Chrome that was causing that! It was really starting to annoy me as well :p

While I haven't had this happen to me on Neowin, I have had it happen to me on other Invision Powered Board forums I frequent. I'm curious as to what is causing it as well, because it is a frustrating bug to encounter when writing up a large post or thread. I don't think it is browser or OS-specific, so I'm curious as to what is flawed in IP.Board itself.

I really wished the RTE would let you toggle the view like the old forum did... I know, I've complained about this before...

I just tried to post a reply here: http://www.neowin.net/news/vmware-viewer-broken-by-windows-7-security-patch

I pressed the reply button next to 'warwagon's name, type in my comment, then tried to submit it, but it said something like I can't submit a blank post.

So I copied and pasted all the text to the reply box at the bottom of the page, which then let me post !

Is this the same issue ?
