Firefox post editing messed up RRS feed

  • Question

  • Well, it is as bad as I thought it would be.  The post rarely renders the way it looks in the editor, preview is useless.  PLEASE don't formatting tags in the post.  The <br /> that FireFox generates when I press the Enter key works just fine, I DON"T want a <p>.

  • if you want a <br>, try using shift-enter.

  • Hard to hold down the Shift key with two fingers crossed behind my back.  I reckon you'll get plenty of flak over this from other FF users.  Let's see...

  • We were getting lots of flak for having the default enter behavior be a <br> (I forget the actual problem, but I think it affected quoting or inserting code.)

  • Here's an example of that the problem was:

  • So, you've got some users complaining about toolbar buttons not working properly.  Nothing new there.  And instead of fixing the toolbar button code, Telerik decided it should be fixed by changing the Enter button code.  Nice.  An old Halflife mod I played a long time ago jumps to mind: "We can do more damage that way!"

    I patched the post editor javascript at the old forum site before, injecting Xinha.  Can you give me a hint where to look?

  • Here's an example of a messed up post.  I intended to have blank line between the introduction and the code.  It showed a blank line in the editor, preview too.  But gets rendered without one.  What's going on here?

  • Hello,
        This isn't just a FF browser problem, because I am using IE7 and have the same problem.


    How are a plum and a rabbit similar? They're both purple, except for the rabbit.

  •  That should just be CSS. Looking at your example, it's enclosed in a <p> but the current global css rule for <p> is margin-bottom of 1em (not sure why that was done). We should just override for message body p's to have top and bottom margins.

    So, you have an issue that affects a few users, and you "fix" it with a solution that screws up everybody, and in the process, creates editor behavior that doesn't exist in any other forum. Slick.

    This is not the design pane of a development tool, and hitting Enter should not create a new paragraph. It is a text editor with limited formatting capabilities, and hitting Enter should result in a new line, not a new paragaph. Please give us back the former behavior.

    cheers,
    scott

  • There's been migration going on this week and we only have certain windows of opportunity to get things pushed. But as luck would have it, it appears we're going to be able to get this update out later today. I'll reply again when it does go live.

  • Just to emphasize: this is still not resolved.

  • Two servers in rotation were found to not have had the updated applied. As of now, this should happen no more.
