              If you have VB 4.2.1 and Tapatalk and the WYSIWYG editor is having trouble in IE10-

              The issue appears to be because of Tapatalk.

              Specifically the Tapatalk plugin; Tapatalk: Add Tapatalk detect JS

              The problem is it puts its detect code at the top of the headinclude template and IE doesn't want to see JavaScript above the meta tag.

              The fix is to edit the plugin- change the last line:

              $headinclude = $tapatalkdetect . $headinclude;

              $headinclude = $headinclude . $tapatalkdetect;

              This will put the JavaScrit below the meta tags and it seems to work in my tests.

              If your Tapatalk plugin is just a link to the file smartbanner.php then you must make the same edit mentioned above to that file instead.


              A similar issue exists if you use ForumRunner-

              Edit the ForumRunner plugin: Forum Runner: Append Detect Code

              Erase it all and change it to:
              if ($vbulletin->options['forumrunner_redirect_onoff'] == 1)
                 $fr_tpl = vB_Template::create('fr_redirect');
                 $vbulletin->templatecache['headinclude'] .= ' $final_rendered .= \'' . $fr_tpl->render() .  '\';';
              And save the changes.
