Many thanks :)

Posted in Nested Comment Threads in Rails - Part 1 Discussion

Hello Christ
I'm using the simplemde editor on my rails 5.0 blog site. simplemde displayed fine under the comment until i added nested comments based on this tutorial. The problem now is only the first reply textarea has simplemde attached to it correctly. but after submiting a first comment when i click reply i just get a basic textarea without simplemde attached to it.
I'm trying to achieve exactly how simplemde is being used with nested comments tread here at goRails

This is what my look like

simplemde = null
cleanupSimpleMDE = ->
  if simplemde?
    simplemde = null

$(window).on 'popstate', cleanupSimpleMDE
$(document).on 'turbolinks:before-visit', cleanupSimpleMDE

$(document).on 'turbolinks:load', ->
    $mde = $(".simplemde")
    QUEUE = MathJax.Hub.queue
    if $mde.length > 0
        $mde.each (_, el) ->
            simplemde = new SimpleMDE({
                element: el,

and my form partial looks looks like this

<%=form_for([commentable,], local: true, html: {class: local_assigns[:class], data: {target: local_assigns[:target]}}) do |form| %>
    <p class="message-area"><%=form.text_area :content, class: "simplemde", id: "md-editor"%></p>
    <%=form.hidden_field :parent_id, value: local_assigns[:parent_id]%>
    <div class="">
        <span class="inline-block p-r-10">
            <%=form.submit "Post reply", class: "btn btn-primary", id: "submit_comment"%>
<% end %>

Is there something i'm missing? Thanks for your help
