bbPress with TinyMCE, TinyMCE breaks on nested reply

  • expectancy


    Sharing this here in case anyone else has this issue. It’s a combination of using bbPress with either the bbPress Toolkit or the code snippet to use the TinyMCE editor in place of the standard editor.

    When using the TinyMCE editor, clicking “Reply” to a thread (using nested threads) would move the reply box to be under the thread, but the box itself loses the text area so you can’t type anything in.

    The workaround is to remove and reenable the TinyMCE instance. In the bbpress/templates/default/js/reply.js file, add these two lines to the “try” block (line 38):

    tinymce.execCommand(‘mceAddEditor’, false, ‘bbp_reply_content’);

  • Hi @expectancy,

    I was unable to reproduce this error. Could you switch to a standard theme like twenty seventeen and deactivate all plugins and try again ?

    If you think bbP Toolkit would need a change, then please use the dedicated forum for that plugin to report it.



    Thanks @expectancy,

    I had exactly the same problem with IE and your solution works perfectly!

    Thanks for sharing
