When tryin' to end a private conversation, it appears an error message:

unterminated string literal
var logs=generate_question_ui('(You are closing this chat)

(i'm on local, but it happens in remote, too).

Then it's impossible to close the conversation, every click, same error.

Looks like either a line-break has got into a language file somehow (fix attached to make the template handle them in this scenario).

Or, you edited the template and added a line-break at a bad place  [inside some Javascript code](in which case you'll need to remove it).

  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

Well, since I did not modified the template or some script, I've looked for a line break somewhere.
The only one I found was in the italian translation (which I did) of the variable WANT_TO_DOWNLOAD_LOGS.
There was a line break in translation, between "(You are closing this chat)" and "Would you like to download the conversation log to save on your computer?".
I removed the linebreak (putting all the text on the same row), and now it works!
