Formatting Inconsistency

Posted by Kragghle on Aug 17 2013 - 04:14 PM

:kaukau: As you can tell, I'm one of those guys who likes to format his text with a specific color for every post.  Sometimes, however, there will be a paragraph which, when I create a post, blog entry, or PM, stays black.  It seems random, and I don't know what causes it.
A little less random is that sometimes a word that's italicized or in bold will turn up as black and colorless once I hit the "post" button.  It doesn't happen often, but sometimes it does.  At least I can determine then that it has to do with italicized or bolded words.  Otherwise, when it happens with entire paragraphs it seems random.
It's not a huge issue and is easy to fix.  If anyone else has noticed similar patterns and can add something, then of course let those be known.


Have you tried setting a default formatting for all your posts? Are you using the Rich Text Editor? If so, have you tried switching to the BBCode editor to see if the tags look right?

@B6 ~ Yeah, everything mentioned here used to happen to me when I was using default formatting (I've since disabled it for a while because of the Flash Fiction Marathon). Since I stopped using it, it hasn't seemed to be a problem for me (though I've noticed it in others' posts who I presume use default formatting, such as Kraggh). I was always using the RTE and never tried switching to BBCode. 
Edit: IIRC, there was also a problem with past posts--when I used default formatting, and my old posts switched to this color/font as well, for some largely-formatted posts, there were inconsistencies (paragraphs not being formatted, etc., like Kraggh mentioned). 
It definitely happened randomly, too, like Kraggh said. I feel like it may have been more common when either I quoted someone or someone quoted me, but I could be wrong.

I confirm this issue. I usually experience this when I make an entire post, then go back to edit in an extra paragraph. The paragraph, in turn, changes back to default text. When I look in the BB Code, I find that the color tags, along with the font tags, do not surround the extra paragraph, even though they obviously were colorful in the RTE.
