Keep Text Inputs in Sync

var $inputs = $(".example-input");
$inputs.keyup(function() {



  1. There seems to be some user unfriendly differences between firefox and chrome (that is that I have noticed)

    in firefox it works fine I think
    but in chrome your marker thing (that blinking line that tells you where in the field you are typing)
    will jump to the end of the field every time you release the key on your keyboard

    this makes it a pain in the ass to edit more than one character thats typed early in the field

    doesn’t work when text is pasted using mouse (right click, paste)
    doesn’t work if value is pasted with javascript

      For folks using jquery 1.7+

      $inputs.on( "paste keyup", function() { 
           $inputs.val( $( this ).val() );

Posting Code

  • Use Markdown, and it will escape the code for you, like `<div class="cool">`.
  • Use triple-backticks for blocks of code.
      <h1>multi-line block of code</h1>
      <span>be cool yo.</span>
  • Otherwise, escape your code, like <code>&lt;div class="cool"&gt;</code>. Markdown is just easier though.
