I am afraid, only Safari developers might provide precise information on that. So may be it would be nice, if some of your users would ask Safari support.

No, unfortunately: nothing appears in the JavaScript Console for the affected users. The users are not getting a JavaScript error, but only the alert message for not highlighting text.

Thanks so much for taking the time to help me.

Thanks for your suggestion, Team (sorry, I didn't see your post earlier--we must have posted around the same time).

No joy pearpc, and version 10.3 OS X, I can not get installed on the PC I was using. I could get the so far in the installation but it kept crashing at differnet points with different settings.

I am out of ideas without having hands on OS X, to be able to put some code to test I am beat.

Thanks for trying, just the same, realitybytes! I have trawled the Web for other possible fixes, but have not been able to find one that differs from yours. :-(

So, maybe Safari just doesn't support get.selection method? Worth of writing to the Mac OS X team... as I already mentioned :-)

Apparently recent security-based changes have affected the way Safari handles the getSelection() function. This is a bug that affects any string functions on the returned value of getSelection(). The workaround is supposed to involve the addition of an empty string to the value that immediately forces the getSelection() result into a string - this workaround, I think, is exactly what realitbytes recently suggested me to try. Strangely, however, the workaround does not work for me - perhaps mine is an isolated case? I shall check again to see that I have done everything suggested by realitybytes. If problem persists, I guess there is but one option left: submit a bug report to the Mac OS X Team, and hope for the best!

Just an update - a happy ending:
I am now running miniBB 2 RC5 (thanks to Team's/Paul's great help), and I have received reports from delighted Safari users saying that the quote function is now working perfectly for them. :-)

Uh-oh, bad news: after the recent upgrade to RC5a, the quote function no longer wants to work in Safari; if I highlight some text and then click 'quote', all that appears in the text box is one word: undefined. :-(

Bad news is that Safari browser is much-much slower for updates than Mozilla or IE. We have made recent updates because of Mozilla's core changes and IE7 - so, we won't worry again about this Safari terrapin.

Well, in fact, we care about Safari users, as much as others... the problem is - nobody from us has Safari browser. So, only Safari users and developers could determine the reason. Probably, it's again in document.getSelection function...

Thanks, Team, for taking the time to reply; I guess there is not much you can do about this problem then, which is too bad for my Safari users who are really missing the quote function. :-((

Well, miniBB is open source, and somebody from Safari users could definitely determine the problem and report it to us; else we can't do something.

OK, Team! I'll try to find out and then report back any specific error messages/browser debug info that Safari gives when the user tries to use the quote function.
Cheers,

Hi Team,

Below is what one Safari user just reported back after I had asked for browser debug info - not sure whether it is the information you are after:


var selektion;

function insertAtCursor(myField, myValue, bbCode1, bbCode2, endOfLine) {
var bbb;
if(bbCode1=='[url=null]') { bbCode1=''; bbCode2=''; }
if(bbCode1=='[imgs]' && myValue==null) { bbCode1=''; bbCode2=''; myValue=''; }

if (document.selection) {
//IE support
var str = document.selection.createRange().text;
myField.focus();
sel = document.selection.createRange();
sel.text = bbCode1 + myValue + bbCode2 + endOfLine;
if(myValue=='') { bbb=bbCode2.length; sel.moveStart('character',-bbb); sel.moveEnd('character',-bbb); }
sel.select();
return;
}
//MOZILLA/NETSCAPE support
else if (myField.selectionStart || myField.selectionStart == '0') {
var startPos = myField.selectionStart;
var endPos = myField.selectionEnd;
var bbb2, bbV, eoll;
if(myValue=='') myValue = myField.value.substring(startPos, endPos);
//alert(myValue);
myField.value = myField.value.substring(0, startPos) + bbCode1 + myValue + bbCode2 + endOfLine + myField.value.substring(endPos, myField.value.length);
if(myValue=='') { bbb=bbCode1.length; myField.selectionStart=startPos+bbb; myField.selectionEnd=endPos+bbb; }
else {
bbb=bbCode1.length;
bbb2=bbCode2.length;
bbV=myValue.length;
eoll=endOfLine.length;
myField.selectionStart=startPos+bbV+bbb+bbb2+eoll;
myField.selectionEnd=myField.selectionStart;
}
myField.focus();

return;
} else {
myField.value += myValue;
return;
}
}

function paste_strinL(strinL, isQuote, bbCode1, bbCode2, endOfLine){
if((isQuote==1 || isQuote==2) && strinL=='') alert(l_quoteMsgAlert);
else{
if (isQuote==1) {
bbCode1=''; bbCode2=''; endOfLine='
';
}
if (isQuote==2) {
bbCode1=''; bbCode2=''; endOfLine='
';
}
var isForm=document.forms["postMsg"];
if (isForm) {
var input=document.getElementById('postText');
//var input=document.forms["postMsg"].elements["postText"];
insertAtCursor(input, strinL, bbCode1, bbCode2, endOfLine);
}
else alert(l_accessDenied);
}
}

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

No really clear what does it mean - it's just a code snippet from form.js file. We need actual error description, most desirable with showing line number in the code.
