Quoting a sentence with a smiley doesn't work at community

Module: Community

If you try to quote a sentence with a smiley nothing happens.
I tried it with the following sentence

[quote=“flatspin, post:126, topic:3083”]
Ehhhh, yes, but I think it’s japanese…

You mean this?

Yes I mean this, but tried it with other sentences too.
For example your one:

[quote=“des, post:8, topic:8388”]
I allready know that (smiley) but i think i have found solution (smiley)

In your message i can see smileys… :thinking:

Hi Dominik,
thanks for your answer, but I don’t know which smiley you mean.
I can set smileys for myself, but I can’t quote a sentence from somebody else with a smiley.

For description:

I tried to to mark a sentence with a smiley and click on quote. Nothing happens. If you do it with a sentence without a smiley an answer with the quotation is opened.

Did some tests, but every smiley seems to work, I can also see them in preview:

Maybe a browser or browser add on problem?

Test with firefox:

Copy/paste test:

I allready know that :wink: but i think i have found solution :smiley:


It’s a Browser problem. I used Firefox portable 57.0 (32 bit) with no addons installed.
Now I have tested it with Firefox 57.0 (64 bit) install version and it works. Thanks to @mrmarkuz, @dnutan and @des for testing it.


Take a look at

Hi Alessio,
thanks for your answer and your link.

But I think it’s an other problem, for me my problem seems to be a browser-problem.

Sorry that’s the right one

Thanks again Alessio.

Ok, it looks like a similar problem, but with installversion of firefox it works for me.
But perhaps the @dev_team can have a look at the code of the community site.

Community site is Discourse, if the Discourse Team won’t fix the problem we are not able to do that :-\

Now I am having similar problem with Firefox 57.0.1 64 bit on Windows 10, maybe I marked wrong when testing…

When the smiley is the last char of the marked text, nothing happens when I click on “Quote”.
I can reproduce it with quoting the sentence in Quoting a sentence with a smiley doesn’t work at community
