Quote selection and Quotes plugins stopped working after upgrade to 2.0.18. After quoting browser is focused on textarea but string is not carried over.

I have managed to catch an js error that shows after unsucessful quoting:



/forum/plugins/QuoteSelection/quoteselection.js:96 in latest version of plugin.

"TypeError: Result of expression 'quoteData.url' [undefined] is not an object."


  • Ok, I have found that the problem is manifesting when using Markdown input formater.
    Problem is in the line 96 of the /plugins/QuoteSelection/quoteselection.js file:

    url = quoteData.url.replace(/^https?:\/\/[^\/]*/, '');
    return "> [" + title + "](" + url + "): " +
    quoteData.text.replace("\r", "").replace(/\n{2,}/gm, "\n\n>") +

    but if we skip domain trimming everything works fine:

    //url = quoteData.url.replace(/^https?:\/\/[^\/]*/, '');
    return "> [" + title + "](" + quoteData.url + "): " +
    quoteData.text.replace("\r", "").replace(/\n{2,}/gm, "\n\n>") +

  • I can't get this to work with 2.0.18. Quote button does not appear at all.
