I've noticed that the spacebar does not engage when I type a reply...so there are no breaks between words. I've had to type in Word ..then copy/paste into a reply.

It works properly when creating a thread, but that's it.

It only happens on WBF...no where else. Really strange.

Has anyone else experienced this?

I've noticed it as well - seems to happen only when replying with a quote... replies without quotes are not showing this behavior. I'm using the Chrome browser on Windows 10 BTW.

I use Reply with quote virtually with every post and I have never experienced such similar problems. Don't know what to say Johnny. I don't use Chrome at all

Perhaps it's an issue with Chrome. Weird though...now it seems to work fine. (throws hands up in air) :)

Have you out of curiosity tried a different browser?

No issues on FF Steve, at least on my end.

Unfortunately the problem is real though due to latest changes to Chrome and the way the code in vbulletin generates text. See: http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/foru.../4356452-space-bar-not-working-on-reply/page2 And a message from their support staff:


"Thu 27th Oct '16, 9:30am
Just to manage expectations - this is almost certainly an incompatibility between new versions of Chrome and the now quite old version of CKEditor that vBulletin 4 uses as its message editor.

There is no development work on vB4 now, as it is not the current product. The only work being done is php compatibility, any security issues that come up, and a handful of very minor bug fixes. Development work is focused on vB5.

Replacing the version of CKEditor in vB4 would be a major undertaking, requiring months of developer and QA time. I'm afraid that is not likely to happen.

Probably the best bet for any users affected is to get them to switch to the text-only editor ('source mode) instead of the WYSIWYG. They can do this in their user settings."


Hopefully the community will find a fix and or they change their mind and look into this.
