Quotes look weird.

Posted by TheSkeletonMan939 on Nov 29 2012 - 05:23 PM

I'm going to make a quote here.
 

Blah blah blah! Bleepity bleep bloorpt.

 
But it sort of just meshes with the rest of my post.
 
The quote looks fine in editing mode.

It is due to the recent update, however, switching to the IP.Board skin fixes it.

/EDIT: Removing the duplicate thing to prevent further confusion. >>'

Not seeing what you are seeing.

Basically, only the 'quote' bar is visible; the borders aren't there. It doesn't affect the IP.Board theme, however; just the BZPower theme.

Here is another example. Just noticed this, thanks for putting a ticket up for it. :lol:

This is a duplicate of this issue. It is due to the recent update, however, switching to the IP.Board skin fixes it.

This is actually a separate issue. The first appears to be a forum bug. This one is related to our custom skin.

Hmm, true... I guess I was a little confused, since the discussion branched to include this issue after a while, and specifically after the upgrade. >>' My bad. =/

Whoops, guess it is a dupe. Apologies.

Well, the problem is now affecting me even though I'm on the IP.Board theme anyway. Pre-existing quotes look fine, but when I quote a post, it turns out strange again. :/
 
EDIT: Never mind, it fixes itself after refreshing the page.

So I was going to make a new tracker thread to mention this, and made an image displaying the differences in the quotes, but obviously when I saw this I realized it should go here, where it may achieve some utility be letting those not seeing the problem in the forums know what it looks like, maybe?
 
So, link. The older quotes are displaying properly, but very recent ones are messed up. And, very oddly, sometimes it zigzags which ones are displaying oddly. The post right after the second one in the image also had a quote, but it displayed normally.

Quite strange. Hopefully a fix can be worked out.

Can someone find some links to quotes that are displaying properly? That's the first I've seen of this.

Yes, here's an example from a S&T thread: proper quote. The next few posts with quotes also display properly.

Yet the quotes that display before and after that section are messed up. Hmm...

Among the many validation errors for that page are mismatched HTML tags. Perhaps this is what if causing the problems with quote boxes? I often see things like this happen when tags an unmatched.

Yeah, Imm also having this problem. 

I think the problem is in either the BBCode settings or the HTML. Whenever you enter the BBCode Editer, there is only a quote tag at the start of the quote, not at the end of the quote. When I add a quote tag at the end of the quote and then preview the post, the quote tag I inserted at the end disappears. I'm thinking there may be a problem in the BBCode/HTML.

I'll try to find the error by trial and error you'll hear the results soon.
 
First notice:
 
Don't know if this is new but the code for the end of the quote is completely missing:

This is the full code of a post from above here with a quote:
<div class="tracker_post post"> <p class="citation">Black Six, on 02 Dec 2012 - 14:52, said:<span></span></p><blockquote class="ipsBlockquote built" data-author="Black Six" data-time="1354456349"><p>Can someone find some links to quotes that are displaying properly? That's the first I've seen of this.</p></blockquote>Yes, here's an example from a S&T thread: <a href="http://www.bzpower.com/board/index.php?showtopic=7692&p=462635" class="bbc_url" title="">proper quote</a>. The next few posts with quotes also display properly. test test <br> </div>
You'll remark the
<p class="citation">Black Six, on 02 Dec 2012 - 14:52, said:<span></span></p><blockquote class="ipsBlockquote built" data-author="Black Six" data-time="1354456349">
stands for the quote box above but the bow underneath is missing

Could it be the
[/quote]
is replaced by nothing in the place of the end box?

Don't know but if i replace the
[/quote]
code with this:
<p class="citation"><span></span></p><blockquote class="ipsBlockquote built" data-author="Black Six" data-time="1354456349"></blockquote>
In my HTML editor it grants me an acceptable quotebox end

This will be resolved as soon as I can get the css updated and uploaded.  IBP in their infinite wisdom renamed the quote box class from blockquote to ipsBlockquote which broke the styling on our custom skin as it cannot find a class in our skin called "ipsBlockquote".  I'll update when this is resolved.
 
Update: This is resolved.  The change should be propegating out shortly (can be seen in blogs and here and will make it's way to the forum shortly, in the mean time the default quote box style will be seen).  Thanks for the patience on this one.
