In fact, I suspect that changing to BBCode mode is what caused the problem in the first place, as that was what I used to format that post in the first place.
Since BBCode can't be directly interpreted by the browser, IP.Board (or any other forum software, really) parses it into HTML, but when encountering invalid BBCode it has to make decisions - you can't have a single post ruining the entire page, simply because a user forgot to close a tag. All the remaining closing tags will simply be posted as text.
The problem with the rendering of BBCode in general would likely be caused by overly complex and/or improperly nested BBCode. Simpler stuff shouldn't go wrong, since it's just literally a direct translation.
The extra closing tags are produced by the error itself; I did not type them.
Yes, it's still happening.
The problem really is that the number of opening quote tags in BBCode mode does not match the number of closing tags. The software used to alert you to that problem, but it no longer does, and when the number of tags don't match up, you get what I showed in the first post of the ticket.
If I fix the tags so they have the matching number of opening and closing quotes, the problem goes away. However, I think it still needs to be fixed because the software feedback of that mess doesn't tell the user that they have too many opening or closing tags. It's a design flaw.
