force hard refresh after submit

I still had problems loading geshi syntax highlighting, mark V plugin ( @hgtonight made this) and signatures after submitting and editing a comment. They all needed a hard refresh. So i was looking for a way to force this refresh.

In the file: applications/vanilla/js/discussion.js there is this function:

// Hijack comment form button clicks.
   var draftSaving = 0;
$('.CommentButton, a.PreviewButton, a.DraftButton').livequery('click', function() {
// rest of code

I seperated the CommentButton from it and created the same function with at the end a window.location.reload();

/* submit buttons need a hard refresh */
    $('.CommentButton').livequery('click', function() {
// rest of the code and at the end
complete: function(XMLHttpRequest, textStatus) {
            // Remove any spinners, and re-enable buttons.
            $(':submit', frm).removeClass('InProgress');
            $('.DraftButton', frm).removeClass('InProgress');
            if (draft)
               window.location.reload(); /* force the refresh*/


I know this is not a proper way to do it because i edited one of the core files. Maybe someone knows a way to get the same result with a more proper way?

    There are a few more plugins which needs this. This is good. Take your javascript and move it into a plugin which adds a new .js file and then it can be stand alone.

    @Anonymoose Yes, i was already thinking about that to make a plugin of this. Good idea! The core files remain the same.

    Kudos for getting it to work. :)

    That said, I would rather see the underlying issue get fixed. This is a bit like taking aspirin to get rid of your toothache rather than getting the tooth pulled/filled by the dentist.

  • If you want to run some javascript after post submission, bind your handler to the "CommentAdded" event.

    $(document).on('CommentAdded', function() {

  • Great @Bleistivt ; i used the DiscussionRefresh plugin from R_J for this and i added at the bottom:

    $(document).on('CommentAdded', function() {

    Same result without editing the core files!
