And so on...

I'm not really clear on what is going on. I tried a smiley and a spoiler and they were fine.

 

I will put a smiley after this sentence. smile.gif

 

And a spoiler after this one:  testing

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

test

 

So it looks like you can't put a spoiler on the same line as other text, which should be fixed, but what was your problem exactly?

Whenever I use stuff like smileys, crtl+i for italics, spoilers, etc, what I'm trying to do is being placed a couple of characters back, often in the middle of the text I just wrote.

Example 1:

Will place smiley after this sentence:).

< There it only jumped back two spaces, to behind the period.

Example 2:

Will write final word in this sentenceitalics. in

< There it jumped back 4 spaces for the italics tags (they'll probably show up if you quote this post), but the cursor was placed just outside the tags insted of in the middle, so when I kept writing I ended up with 'italics' before 'in' and with nothing actually in italics.

Example 3:

Will place spoiler Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
here:

< There it placed the spoiler tags *behind* 'here' and left the cursor between O and I in the last SPOILER in the spoiler tag.

Don't really know how else to describe it...

Not 100% sure this is the correct thread.....

 

Unless this is targeted at the guys for V-Day total wast of add space for both members and sponsors. Don't remember the last time I wanted to buy a green breast wallet from Kate Spade nest.gif

Yeah there's definitely something funky going on with the editor at least while using IE.
I've only seen it happen with quoted messages. When you hit a keyboard shortcuts like ctrl-i, the cursor jumps up a few lines and inserts the italic tags there.
I blame huddler.

^Dito. Saw it all day long. Seems to be gone now though. Edit: Or not.. but at least it's not there all the time.

Can I have my title changed to Swagdorf Goodman?
post #11993 of 15037
Minor point, but has anyone mentioned the inconsistent capitalization in the "Popular threads" box in CM? It chafes my OCD.

Perhaps the easiest fix would be to remove that big honkin' box and save me from scroll-related carpal tunnel?

Can anyone explain why the AFPOS thread appears to have been squirrelled?
post #11995 of 15037
There was a thread on this recently... I believe they are no longer a sponsor vendor or whatever. Sucks that the thread gets nuked when vendors leave, there was doubtless some good info in there frown.gif

Speaking of capitalization, is there a reason why all usernames are written in minuscules only in the preview of PMs? Yet when you open the PM it says "Conversation between ... and me" with correct capitalization.

I can't believe that to be true. But if it is it certainly sucks.
post #11998 of 15037
Why would a vendor continue to pay for a popular thread that was percolating under its own steam? Has to come down or it defeats the SF business model.
post #11999 of 15037
They could close the thread or move it into some archive, don't you think?
