BBCode Problems

Postby Indigo » 06/04/2017 10:23 PM

"Problem" may be an exaggeration. Nuisance, perhaps.

When I attempt to insert tags in a post by clicking one of the buttons above the text field, and I have not already selected what I want inside the tags, they will appear in a different place from where the cursor was when I clicked the button. Sometimes they'll just appear on the line above where they were supposed to, other times they'll select a random block of existing text and do weird things to my post if I don't notice in time. This started happening around the time the wordcount thing was added so maybe they're related somehow? I don't know anything about coding, or if this is happening to anyone else for that matter.

I'm not a gangster tonight
Don't wanna be a bad guy
I'm just a loner, baby
And now you've gotten in my way

I can't decide whether you should live or die
Oh you'll probably go to heaven
Please don't hang your head and cry
No wonder why my heart feels dead inside
It's cold and hard and petrified
Lock the doors and close the blinds
We're going for a ride

I've had that issue recently too. I'd always just assumed the problem was with my laptop, which has a tendency to... be kinda funny about selection anyway, but this specific issue is pretty recent. If you're having it too, then... I dunno what it might be, but I am glad to hear it's not just me XD;

When I open my mouth.
I want to love you but I don't know how.

This may or may not be related, but I've noticed that my posts keep coming out with random page breaks in them? Like I've accidentally bumped enter while typing. It's specific to this forum, so I thought I'd mention it.

Huh, I've tried replicating this but with no luck :'l Is it specific to a browser (also for collecting info, do you use any plug-ins that affect the text field?) or does it happen on all of them? Also if there's any examples of posts with the line breaks, link me? (Or screenshots? Both? Idk xD I remember I couldn't work out why it was misbehaving for crow)


Here I am, there you are
Don't wanna stop
I know you know it, I can feel it
All the tension rising up
So much it hurts
We're saying more than words

Usually I can catch the linebreaks as I'm proofreading my post, but it seems like I type a paragraph, then later notice it's like randomly inserted a line break? The linebreak appears in the text box - both quick reply and post reply - not after I actually make the post.

Example: 'Well' is broken into a new paragraph, but should not have been.

Google Chrome (latest), win10

It seems to be specific to Chrome. I don't have any extensions that would interfere unless something very weird is going on. I also don't have this problem on other websites that use similar buttons for formatting tags so ??

I tried everything people are having trouble with and also had no problems--but it's worth saying I'm running a very old version of Chrome.
You're a door-without-a-key,
A field-without-a-fence.
You made a holy fool of me,
And I've thanked you ever since.
If she comes circling back,
We'll end where we'd begun,
Like two pennies on the train track
The train crushed into one,
Or if I'm a crown without a king,
If I'm a broken open seed,
If I come without a thing,
Then I come with all I need.
No boat out in the blue,
No place to rest your head
The trap I set for you seems to have
Caught my leg instead.

I do not exist. I do not exist. I do not exist.
