I was making this post and editing it: http://www.bzpower.c...ic=236&p=507730

 

But when I saved, it came out as a bunch of BBcode, which was not what I was using to edit it.

 

I tried erasing everything, switching to BBcode, and copy-pasting this stuff into it, but when I clicked preview post, it didn't do anything.

 

How do I fix this?

Well it posted in HTML, so you'll have to know things like:

  •   is a space
  • <i>text</i> is text
  • <b>text</b> is text
  • <s>text</s> is text

Etc.

[font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"][color=rgb(0,128,0);]This has been a recurring problem for many BZPower users. You can post any questions you have about the formatting issue [/color][color=rgb(0,128,0);]here[/color][color=rgb(0,128,0);] or, similarly, [/color][color=rgb(0,128,0);]here[/color][color=rgb(0,128,0);] in these tracker issues. The administrative team is currently working on such issues, but until then, you'll have to do what Meiko suggested.[/color][/font]

Well, I know what that stuff means...

 

But my intention was to fix it so everyone else can read it.

 

Is there any way to do that without writing the whole thing all over again?

[font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"][color=rgb(0,128,0);]HTML editing has been removed by the staff for certain reasons. I'm sorry to say that there is no way to use HTML code and convert it back to regular text/BBCode via BZP. You may want to explore the internet for some alternative converters, however. But your best bet is just to take out the HTML code, and reedit the text.[/color][/font]

Fixed it using Wikia for the basic code fixing and then edited the rest even better than before.

 

Thanks, you gave me the idea.

 

I guess this topic can be closed now.

The problem is with IPS, and we'll likely be upgrading to hopefully fix it soon. I'm glad you found a workaround.Thread closed.
