- If a user has a post awaiting moderation, it still shows up in the Responses count on their profile, but obviously not in the post listing (see attached screenshot). Not a big deal for people with a bunch of posts, but kind of looks weird when they only have a few as it's noticeably inaccurate.

When I copied the name a of forum from the left column of the post listing (e.g., "Using jQuery Plugins" in large, bold letters) and pasted it into the WYSIWYG, it showed up normally (screenshot_09.png), but when I published my post, the copied text and everything following it showed up bold from the copied styles (screenshot_08.png).

A clear formatting button would be nice, but if the WYSIWYG reflected the styles correctly that'd be even better. :)
- I often browse a forum by "Unanswered Topics" so I can try to address those who haven't been helped yet. Once I reply, I click the forum link in the breadcrumb at the top, but it takes me back to the unfiltered post listing. I image that for most this is ideal - it would be annoying if you forgot you had a topic filter turned on, after all - but a quick link back to the topic listing with the topic filter intact would be great.
I realize hitting my browser's back button would achieve this, but then I have to sift through the ones I've replied to already. Not a big deal, but I wanted to throw it out there.
- Just a few things I noticed on the Watchlist page (see attached screenshot).
- The "Sub forums (0)" tab doesn't gracefully span two lines
- The info message in the yellow states "Here, you see give of the most recent activities for the past ten days." however it lists more than five and from farther back than ten days.
- It'd be really nice is this page sorted topics by last reply.
- If you head to the Slider demo and click the "Multiple sliders" example, any sliders you load after that one become vertical.
Steps to reproduce:
- Load Slider demo
- Click any of the first few examples and note they're horizontal
- Click the "Multiple sliders" example
- Click any of the other examples and notice how they're now vertical
Tested in Firefox 3.5.7 and Chrome (Windows).
I've been skimming around the forums but didn't see this mentioned, so I apologize in advance if I overlooked it somewhere.
The Google Groups import seems to have gotten a little wonky for some posts. Looking at Why mootools animations is more smooth than jquery? most of the replies are from guest, even replies from Rey and other registered users, and a number of the posts are, effectively, blank, making the conversation hard to follow.
Also, hitting enter in the Search jQuery input at the top of each page doesn't submit the form, but clicking the magnifying glass works. Once on the search results page, the link for "Go for advanced search" gets cut off on the right side. Furthermore, it'd be great to be able to sort the search results by date, relevance, etc.
Finally, if you copy and paste something into the RTE, it retains the text styling. Is there any way to remove formatting? So far I've just been copying/pasting unstyled text from my reply and overwrite it.
I'm using Chrome for Mac. Thanks!
- Wow, I haven't been around the forum the last few weeks due to the holidays and work, and I was blown away by the amount of spam that had hit here! Thanks to those who reported offensive topics and spam - I deleted over 300 posts and banned 72 accounts today!
Unfortunately, that just treats the symptom, not the cause. So in order to deter automated registrations, I added a simple question to the signup page that real users should have no problem answering. This won't catch all of them, but hopefully it significantly cuts back and makes cleaning up the stragglers more manageable. If this doesn't do anything to deter spam bots, I'll looking into adding a CAPTCHA or other heavier security measures.
In addition to the above, I also fixed the issue with the forum not remembering your login when "Log me on automatically each visit" was checked. Let me know if you're still having issues with that.
Lastly, I've begun working on recruiting some additional help around here to give me a hand with keeping the forum in check. I'd like to thank everyone for their patience with the transition to the new forum and hopefully we can keep things running smoothly around here!
- If you didn't see it already, head over to the jQuery blog and read about the newest version of jQuery, v1.3; the new CSS selector engine, Sizzle; the new API browser by Remy Sharp; and the jQuery foundation.
Happy 3rd birthday, jQuery!
Why do my events stop working after an AJAX request?
- 11-Dec-2008 06:11 AM
- Forum: Using jQuery
This is one of the most frequently asked questions on this board. Fortunately, jQuery's documentation already includes multiple solutions to this. Try the link below first, and then if you're still having problems, create a new thread and explain the issue(s) you're having and what you've tried already.
As of v1.3, jQuery now supports Live Events, which work like .bind() but also apply to elements added after the binding takes place.
Pimp my jQuery: Five plugins to replace the features Prototype and Scriptaculous users expect
- 03-Dec-2008 04:59 AM
- Forum: Using jQuery
Finally pushed v1.3 of my No Spam jQuery plugin out the door over the
weekend. For those unfamiliar, it takes an obfuscated e-mail address
and turns it into a human-readable one. It's meant to be light and
easy to use, and I've updated the PHP companion function for it so
they're compatible, making it even easier.
The biggest update with this release is the much-request support for e-
mail addresses containing multiple dots (.), so enjoy! (Please note
that this release is not back-wards compatible as it now uses two
forward slashes for the @ sign!)
Thanks to those who have contributed feedback thus far!
- mconway and I were talking and it made me want to ask: What's your favorite code editor and why?
I really like Dreamweaver for its clean look and helpful commands, but I can't afford it at home. For a while I was using Crimson Editor and then PSPad, and recent started using Eclipse, but it lacks some of the simple features Dreamweaver does.
So, what's your favorite code editor and why?
- I posted once already about this, but it needs revisiting.
Take a look at InPro vs Symmetry. InPro's menus reveal themselves from the top-down, whereas Symmetry's actually slide down. InPro is using jQuery with Superfish; Symmetry is using an older version of TransMenus (youngPup, http://youngpup.net/projects/transmenus/).
My question: Has anyone seen this replicated in jQuery using custom animations of some sort? TransMenus work just fine, but weigh in at 750 lines of code and require quite a bit of configuration. I'm not opposed to created a jQuery plugin for this (even trimming it down a lot if I can), but if it's been done already I'd like to know that first.

- Everyone pre-order jQuery In Action yet?
The book is from Manning Publications authored by Bear Bibeault and Yehuda Katz. When you order, you have the option of getting the eBook for $5 more.
I ordered mine back in December and it should get here by the 2nd half of February.
- I was mulling over the idea of a forum category specifically for help with jQuery plugins. It's not up to me if it'd be implemented, but do we think it'd be useful, or are we better off lumping everything thing in one general "Help" category?
This way would give us a general jQuery help section for generic questions, and a plugin category specifically for plugins (integration, impementation, etc).
Curious to know eryone's thoughts on this.
This jQuery plugin turns an obfuscated e-mail address into a human-
readable one. It's lightweight and accepts multiple filtering levels
for additional security.
I also created a PHP function (see link above) to dynamically
obfuscate your e-mail addresses. This allows you to simply pass in an
e-mail address without having to alter it by hand so it matches some
I know there are other similar plugins out there, but they weren't
what I was looking for. So I set out and wrote my first jQuery plugin,
and hopefully others find it useful!
- This jQuery plugin turns an obfuscated e-mail address into a human-readable one. To use this plugin, include jquery.nospam.js and call the nospam() method. No Spam automatically detects if your matched element is a link. If so, it checks the rel attributes for the obfuscated e-mail addresses. For all other elements, it uses the text between the matched tags.
Full demo and download available at
There are ones that exist already, but I feel they are too clunky and cumbersome. What's nice about No Spam is that you can choose from two different levels of protection, so if you're extra cautious with your email addresses you can have that extra level of flexibility.
- I wasn't seeing the option for this, but a Mark as Solved button would be good so we know when a topic has been resolved.
Poking around the phpBB Mods database I didn't see anything, but maybe someone knows of a publicly available one.
Admins/Moderators/Helpers could also be given the power to mark other threads as Solved to help keep things cleaned up.
- I implemented the Accordion plug-in for jQuery, and am disappointed to find out it doesn't calculate the height correctly (I am setting autoheight to true). Basically, it calculates the height of the first element you click and applies it to all the others thereafter instead of recalculating it each time.
There were a few workarounds and posts about using the latest build, but I can't get the thing to calculate the height correctly.
Anyone know of a fix, or a different accordion-style menu that can be triggered by a mouse over?
FWIW, here's my code:
- At my work they've traditionally used ypSlideOutMenus for dropdown menus, but I'd like to take them into the jQuery world to provide a faster, more customizable solution.
That said, what's your favorite jQuery dropdown? Most of the ones I've seen just do height:show, but I'd like to see some that actually move the menu into position. For example: Women's Fund (using ypSlideOutMenus); here the menu actually slides down. Bonus points if it supports multple nested menus (flyouts from the dropdowns).
I'm not opposed to writing my own, but, a) why reinvent the wheel, and, b) as usual, there's a time budget. Thoughts?
The jQuery team announced the release of the brand new jQuery UI library this past Monday. In particular, I like Draggables and Resizeables.
Full documentation is available.
