New posting Editor

Postby Webmaster » Thu Mar 12, 2009 7:32 am

You'll see an obvious change in the posting screen, whether it's a new post or a reply. There's a small problem with it, and I'm working on resolving it, but you should still be able to post and reply to messages.

The advantage to this new editor is that it allows for more functionality in posting, which a few people have asked for. I just need to find out why there's a long white area under the function buttons.




:edit:



In a quick test, I used Internet Explorer to see if the same problem was there or not. It's not. In IE the editor shows up just fine, so it's a problem with FireFox and possibly other browers. I'll have to dig into it some more to find the problem.

Impressive.


I got all excited when I found I could resize an image in the editor, however, it readjusted the size to full when it was submitted. (Drat!)





For some reason the center, justify and left butons to the right of the "switch BB code/HTML view" button do not load. If I enter the link to the graphic (http://www.cnvillage.org/images/editor/center.png) into my address bar, it says "Object not found"

Really? Alright, I'll have to look into that later on. For now I've got to get ready for work.

Otherwise it looks like it's working alright.

I'm wondering if the resize only works on images that are too large? Or for making smaller images larger? I'll have to test that out later.

What are you using for your browser, IE or FireFox?

Dan,


I notice that when in html mode, the posting editor adds an extra line whenever you hit enter. Is there a way to turn off the extra line?

Dan, have you had a chance to check into this?

You may try using the Shift+Enter to get a single line.

I don't know how I missed this one. Thanks to Jude for replying to it or I might have missed it totally.

Short answer: Don't know, I'll have to look into yet.

Long answer: I don't use HTML much when posting, so I'll have to try it and see what happens. I think what Jude suggested will work, but I'm not sure.

I'll let you know when I look into it.

Without going through each forum individually, how can we know in which ones we can reply?

On the Forum Index page, the descriptions of each forum tell whether you need to be a Resident, a Long-term Resident, or a Native Resident to post. To "upgrade" your Resident status, just keep posting in the forums you can post in, and soon you'll be able to post in them all. 8)

I've been having trouble posting. I get a message saying my post has "too few characters."
