Fix for the "quote problem in Safari"

In the file "main_posts.html" the function "pastSel" looks like this:

function pasteSel() {
if(document.getSelection) selection=document.getSelection();
else if(document.selection) selection=document.selection.createRange().text;
else if(window.getSelection) selection=window.getSelection;
else selection='';
}

It should look like this:

function pasteSel() {
if(document.getSelection) selection=document.getSelection();
else if(document.selection) selection=document.selection.createRange().text;
else if(window.getSelection) selection=window.getSelection();
else selection='';
}

What was the symptom of this problem? I'd like to test for it in other browsers.

If you selected the words "symptom of this problem" and then clicked the "Quote" command you would get:

[i][function][/i]

instead of:

[i]symptom of this problem[/i]

The following is an explanation of the bug for those not familiar with javascript:

The bug would only affect browsers that support "window.getSelection", but don't support "document.getSelection" and "document.selection".

The code is supposed to test whether a feature exists and then use that feature. That is what the code does for the first two, not for the third.

The problem was in Safari, as discussed in this thread: http://www.minibb.com/forums/index.php?action=vthread&forum=3&topic=12 92

This is very interesting. Is there any chance of a fix that will make the quote function work in Opera?

http://www.apple.com/safari/

Safari is a great browser, has many things IE lacks and is very fast. It's shaky on some edges of website compatibility, being such a new browser, but it's improving rapidly (as apple's dev team is cooperating with the open source khtml team to make the engine).

konqueror and safari both use the khtml engine, so if you only have a pc, you could test code using konqueror for safari support.
