Right, there’s no way to guarantee formatting between posts created in a different editor, which is why all users are strongly encouraged to use the Simple Post Editor by default.

Whatever works. It’s not like we have some World Wide Consortium working to filter the “Bovine Scatology On Rails” out of our browsers…

Next thing you know, you’ll be making us use such arcane concepts as “grammar”… “vocabulary”… even “spelling” fer gosh shakes!! the nerve of some people!

Well I see there will be no more argument over whether or not someone edited their posts. I just revisited my post about the Convoy metal switch and noticed that instead of saying “the switch used on” I had typed “the switch sued on”. I hate typos particularly in an OP so I fixed it. Now at the bottom of my OP there is a big finger pointing at me at the bottom of my post… Not sure how I feel about that.

Edited by: J-Dub74 on 03/09/2016 – 10:28

Now I feel I should go back and add a note about why I edited it. I always do that where the situation merits an explanation but changing “sued” to “used” does not qualify in my book. Just wondering what others think of this. I on a regular basis will edit out typos noticed within minutes of my posts. If it changes the message in any way I add the reason but I liked having that at my discretion. Just my two bits.

That only shows up for the OP. Normal posts won’t show they have been edited.

Big Smile

Yep, “bigsmile” doesn’t appear to work, in the simple editor at least.

I’m also hoping my favorite Ghost will make a return some day. Santa is also MIA. Though I didn’t see that one used as much.

Signatures are not showing up, is this a new bug or a side effect of work currently underway?

Edit: works here, but notice the problems here:

Basically, signatures show up in threads but not polls.  ;-)

Search not returning any results. Sad

Three Tanna leaves to give him life, nine to give him movement. But what if he eats the whole bag?

Thanks for the report. I’m 99% sure it’s a Google issue, we’ll see if it resolves itself soon.

Sorry I haven’t had time to add the mouseover function. Until I do, it can be manually achieved with the following code:

<a href="#" ><img src=" URL_IMG-1 " onmouseover="this.src=' URL_IMG-2 '" onmouseout="this.src=' URL_IMG-1 '" /></a>
