Can you offer any feedback to the post above from our tech person?
Thanks in Advance,
P.S. One other question: is it possible for a single user to choose to use the standard markup editor instead of Redactor/Quill via some kind of setting? It doesn't seem to be an option, but I wanted to make sure that I'm not missing something.
Redactor hasn't been disabled, per se, we just no longer actively develop on it.
Our tech found that it was not possible. I have asked him to post here to explain why it didn't work.
Quill is probably the better path moving forward. How are you trying to embed youtube videos, via a plugin?
Well, in redactor this button that allowed you to specify a movie URL.
using this dialog:
Quill does not seem to offer the same option. So I'm just dropping the URL into Quill. The link works. But it doesn't embed.
(Note: pre NodeBB 1.16.2 posts that had embedded video still show them as embedded; switching to Quill did not change the behavior of these older posts.)
We are in the process of upgrading to NodeBB 1.16.2. It seems that, in this version, Redactor has been disabled and that the only option for a WYSIWYG editor is Quill.
We have immediately discovered two issues in Quill, which are mentioned in a post from November 2020:
Quoted Text here with a bar to the left
Will either of these get fixed any time soon? It is discouraging when an update offers them reduced functionality.
Thanks in advance for whatever insights any of you might have.
We have a self-hosted version of NodeBB 1.15.0. We use Redactor when users post, because our core audience are not the kind of folks who generally would "get" using markup.
Over the last several weeks (and this does seem to have come up long after we upgraded to 1.15.0) users have been complaining that they cannot reply, as you can see in this thread on our forum
Is this a known bug in 1.15.0? Does the latest version address this issue?
Thanks in Advance for Any Info,
We're self-hosting NodeBB v1.15.0. (We upgraded to that version a few months ago.) I've noticed that when replying to posts and typing @... where I enter a few letters of the users handle, it no longer offers a popup menu to let you choose the correct person.
Was that feature removed from NodeBB, or did it stop working?
If it's a bug, will it come back?
Or could it be something about our configuration?
Thanks in advance for the help.
bump? has anyone taken note of this?
Workaround/clue to the problem: If you click the "file upload" button and enter text where it says "name (optional)" then the link will appear.
I created a fresh trial NodeBB on NodeBB.org, installed v1.8.1.
When I tried uploading files non-picture files with the normal composer, everything worked fine.
When I tried doing it with Redactor enabled, it has the same behavior as our site. The upload progress bar at the top temporarily appears, but no upload appears in Redactor.
So this issue does not seem to be specific to our site.
In NodeBB 1.8.2 we can no longer upload any file types except pictures.
Please note that we are using the Redactor Composer for entering text.
We have the following file types enabled:
Uploading jpg and png files work fine. But when I try .zip, .izz, .pdf the upload indicator at the top of the window briefly shows up, but no file is deposited there.
In previous versions of NodeBB, uploading these kinds of files worked fine with Redactor.
I tried deleting all the file types, saving the settings, and entering them again, but to no avail.
Does anyone have ideas on this for me?
Is there some way to temporary disable Redactor (without uninstalling it) so I can try with the normal composer?
@julian - could you possibly try uploading files with Redactor to see if you see the problem also?
