Code Formatting

20 posts in this topic

Since the recent forum change over, I have noticed that HTML coding is being added to some code fragments, for an example try this.

As you will be aware, this could have nasty consequences if pasted in the registry.

Thanks anyway. :)

This issue still has not been resolved, could you please give us an indication of your progress!

<Edit>

Also whilst I'm here, I have noticed that many members are able to use formatting within the code tags such as underline, bold, colors etc. whereas if I try the same all I get are the tags. Is this dependant upon Guided & Normal Mode?, or is it Browser Dependant?, or some other reason?

TIA

As I said before, don't worry about html code. As for bold, italic or underline you just need to click fx. B (right above http://), type your word and close tag.

Hope this help.

most likely what Yzöwl is talking about would be

this rather then this.

[b]this[/b] rather then this.

Notice the difference? to use formatting options within a "code" tag, use the quote tags instead. Same formatting effect.

Now the headers are completely different colours, so how come I've never noticed all gunsmokingman's scripts in quote boxes...thanks :blushing:

all his posts that I've brought up use QUOTE tags, and not CODE tags. Relook at them again, and you'll see the difference in his post and mine above and you'll see they're QUOTE tags as well

Sorry for the misunderstanding Alanoll, that's what I was trying to say, I cannot believe that after all this time, I had not noticed, the difference. Especially after the last change over as highlighted in my above post, when there was a pronounced colour difference in the header of the boxes.

xper, does that mean it's in hand, or, 'we aint going to fix it', but don't worry!

I dont think anything is wrong at all! No need to fix anything! :)

QUOTE tags can parse BBcode and CODE tags will not - that's normal.....

I agree with prathapml in that having the Code tags accept BBcode might be a bad thing... there could be cases where your code needs square brackets (think of arrays in C/C++) and the BBcode tags would screw that up.

I'd just say leave things as is. :)

If you click on the example link I gave in my first post, and possibly read back my message(s), you will see what I'm talking about, that needs fixing!

Code inside the 'code' boxes is being altered, most noticeable with hex strings in reg file code, i.e. in that example

  • & #58;
    & nbsp;
    and improper line wrap

Amazing, how it always goes quiet, at the strangest of times.

I'm not asking for an immediate fix, even though the problem was reported some time ago!

Just a 'we know but were not going to fix it ever', or a 'week', 'month' any substantial answer, regarding your intentions towards addressing the problem.

If you went to the doctor with a lump on your left testicle, and all he gave you was a 'don't worry'. Then after over a month you go back, and thats all he tells you again...

...well I don't know about you, but I think I'd be starting to worry!

Dude if you think MSFN is your left testicle then you really need to get out more often. Since no one else can tell you the truth in a more understanding way than I'll take the job.....

There is NOTHING WRONG with this forum. If you think there is then go here http://forums.invisionpower.com and complain. They are the creators. MSFN doesn't have time to look at something that doesn't need fixing.

So in closing, your left testicle is fine if you would just stop playing with it and understand most testicles are all the same.

So if i understand right:
Don't worry. Everything is under control.

and
As I said before, don't worry about html code.

means that there is nothing wrong!

Also, does that mean that the writers of the forum software think that it's normal for a code box to not display code without converting characters and thereby completely changing the code contained within!

I don't need to 'get out more', I asked a question and received a prompt reply, as quoted, which suggests that the problem was being looked at.

I prompted again when, after a reasonable amount of time, (a month), no change had occured to the contrary of my understood initial reply.

Should I have received an initial or even secondary reply from xper along the lines of,

  • 'we are aware of this issue, but unfortunately, the matter lies with the forum software writers; they have been made aware of it and we hope for a solution in the near future'

the thread would have ended there.

Thank you

What do you think you are a client of MSFN and xper needs to answer you. The man has more important things to do like take care of his family then worry or answer to anyone on this forum.

Back off dude and relax. They/he owes you no reply.

I apologise for thinking that posting to the 'site and forum issues group' would be an opportunity for the site and forum people to deal with issues.

Although I'm sure that no antagonism was meant from yourself, calling people 'dude', to me is a lack of disrespect. Also putting words into capitals to say that nothing is wrong, when there clearly is, as proven by many code boxes throughout the forum, does appear a little antagonistic.

I'm sorry for wasting peoples precious time, and I will try not to post any further issues to you again.
