Editing problems

Posted by Grandmaster P~M on Dec 31 2012 - 11:30 AM

I recently tried to edit the front post of my comics topic, but when I finished and previewed the edit, the formatting was completely messed up. I tried editing it again, but this time the edit came out as raw HTML, and I am kind of annoyed... Any idea why this happened?

This has happened to me as well, and it's pretty annoying. perhaps the most annoying was just now when I tried to update my game topic, and most of it suddenly was replaced with a link and a smiley I never intended to even use.

Same for me I also see it a lot like working links with
[url]
in front of it.

Form what I can tell the post editor now auto-changes BBCode to a new format.

The old format for images was: (EDIT: Can't post that because image tags inside a codebox kill themselves now too.)


Now it automatically changes from that to this:
[img=imageurlhere]
However, this seems to break on several occasions. My game topic banner (just an image) no longer shows up, and if I try to add it the top of my post vanishes completely regardlessof code method. The banners and screenshots further down works, despite being the same. My entire section about character creation seems to disappear too, while the first part of screenshots (which comes right after) gets half converted to the screenshot link that character creation should have.

Sometimes a smiley will appear and have /> appended to it, like a malformed HTML code.

Code tags themselves now add a parameter for showing line numbers, which is unwanted. I'd much rather that option still be off by default.

But yeah, bottom line is that I don't dare to edit my topic anymore because I'm afraid it'll just wipe itself again. I've had to limit my image use, which is fine in one way but also a bit annoying when I want to use it for a top banner and similar.

Do you guys get the problem that I have, with the raw HTML?

I did a few times before when editing posts, but I haven't seen it in a while.

Is this still happening after the recent upgrade?

It's happening to me. Some posts with lots of quotes will completely disassemble into HTML.

Here's another example. Quick, before he edits it!

Don't worry, I'm too lazy to replace it all with proper quote tags... :P

Isn't there a check box to enable HTML? I thought I saw that somewhere....

HTML posting is disabled due to the issues it can introduce.

Is that because a hacker can post some malicious code and hack the forums with it, or just because it's glitchy or slows down the server or something? Because I think the disabling may be glitching and the raw HTML is showing.

Yes, as XSS attack would be a trivial task if unfiltered HTML could be posted. Simplely entering code like this:
<script type="text/javascript" src="URL_TO_SOME_JAVASCRIPT_FILE"></script>
could inject any JavaScript the hacker wanted with full access to the DOM.

Disabling HTML editing shouldn't introduce the error you're experiencing.  What is happening for you is that the html characters (likely the closing and opening tags) are being escaped (ignored) by the forum for some reason.

Anyone experience this after yesterday? B6 wants to know if it's still happening after the upgrades.

I experience this from time to time; all you need to do to fix it is use the full editor button. Then, press done, and the problem will be fixed.

This might be unrelated, but yesterday, while quoting another post and responding, I hit backspace after making a typo, and the quote box disappeared, leaving just the text inside.

Thant's perfectly normal :)

Yes, it is unrelated, however, did you already have a significant amount of text typed, or did you make a typo on the first word you typed? Because if you hit the backspace to edit a word in a string of words, then there may be a problem (I hope that wasn't confusing :P ).

Checking again to see if anyone is experiencing this bug. Thanks!
