Quick Messages Plugin

My site runs into this as well. It becomes frozen and you need to refresh the site to get out of it

We’re seeing the same problems on our forum, and i guess it’s a bug with Quick Messages - however i’m not 100% sure…

@angus Can you comment on this?

@alexknowshtml @exetico @nexo Thanks guys, I’ll take a look at this tomorrow: Quick Messages Gray Overlay - Work - Angus' Sandbox


Thanks! It looks like another bug with #header-cloak. If i remove "display: block;`, i’m able to select one of the PM’s in the messages-menu.

Another (bug 2):
Popups from bootbox is showing up behind the quick-message due to invalid use of z-index.

Example below…
If i provide a empty message, this is the results:

(Here’s the popup behind)

The same thing happens if i’m trying to close a PM where i’ve typed a few lettets, and it’s asking whether i want do discard the message, or not.

I noticed that z-index: 99999; is added to .messages-container, however the bootbox has z-index: 1300;.

I’m unsure whether there’s a specific reason for the high number, so i’ll leave it here, instead of a pull-request :slight_smile:

Quick message not working in Mobile(Android Oreo 8.0).

@alexknowshtml @exetico @nexo @Eduardo_Braga @Viki Thanks guys, this should fix the cloak issue you’re reporting.

@exetico This should fix the z-index issue.


Windows 10

Is the position right?

Thank you so much. Update fixed the issue. :slightly_smiling_face:

@Eduardo_Braga Thanks, I’ve pushed another updated and also made a PR to discourse core. See further:

Thanks Angus! Unfortunately, there appears to be two more bugs I found.

  1. When selecting the emoji icon, scrolling through the emoji overlay doesnt work/its frozen. However, you can select the categories of emojis on the left sidebar of the overlay.

  2. The area to tap to start typing and the text box is way off. It’s almost vertical. Could you try reproing this?

Thanks, I’ve put these on the agenda:

There is a message synchronization problem with chat plugin Babble, does someone notice it too?

When Babble chat is open, new message only sometimes show in Quick Messages windows :frowning:

Any clues where should I hunt for errors if seeing this?

Hey @pihentagy, do you mean the fact quick messages is not linked to a repo and doesn’t have a settings link? This is just because I hadn’t hooked up this metadata for the plugin.

You can find the quick messages settings by going into your settings and searching for “quick messages”.

In any event, I’ve added that metadata in :slight_smile:


Did you figure out a solution for this?

Unfortunately not. :expressionless:

@jord8on Hey, are you talking about this?

Happy to add it into the work schedule if we can:

  1. Get a feature request: https://discourse.angusmcleod.com.au/w/feature-request

  2. Get 5 votes or a sponsor for it.
