7 zero-width spaces are not removed from Message Board threads

    Details

      Description

      Issue
      7 zero-width space characters are not auto-removed when composing a Message Board thread using CKEditor. As a result, these characters are included in the thread's contents. The usage of these characters is part of a workaround for a Webkit selection bug (see https://dev.ckeditor.com/ticket/13816).

      Steps to reproduce

      1. For versions prior to 7.3.x, use the following portal properties to use CKEditor:
        editor.wysiwyg.portal-web.docroot.html.portlet.message_boards.edit_message.bb_code.jsp=ckeditor_bbcode
        editor.wysiwyg.portal-web.docroot.html.portlet.message_boards.edit_message.html.jsp=ckeditor
        
      1. Create a new user
      2. Go to Content > Message Boards > New Thread
      3. In the thread body, create a mention to and select the user from Step 2
      4. After the mention, add a new line
      5. Publish
      6. Inspect the source code of the thread body

      See steps.mp4

      Expected results
      7 ZWS characters are not present in the source

      Actual results
      7 ZWS characters are present in the sourceĀ
