Source Codes RRS feed

  • Hi guys, I've been using WLW for about a year now and it's an intuitive and productive workspace. Here are some bugs that I've discovered (reenactment). I'm using Blogger now, by the way.

    Redundant [paragraph] tags:
    1. Hit Enter to create additional paragraphs in the Edit mode.
    2. Deleting the extra paragraphs.
    3. Switch from Edit mode to Source mode.
    4. Additional <p></p> tags shows up.

    Truncating/full-removal of custom HTML:
    1. Adding custom HTML (see code below).
    2. Switch from Source mode to Preview or Edit.
    3. Codes get deleted.

    <![if !IE]> 
        <table class="toc" width="120"><tbody> 
        &#187; <href="#"</a><br /> 
        &#187; <href="#"</a><br /> 
        &#187; <href="#"</a> 

    N.B. Previously when I used Wordpress on an external webhost, custom tags such as <spoilers> will get removed too.

    Thank you [WLW] team for the great application once again, it's a pleasure to use it. :)

  • With the second problem, you might want to try a little plugin I wrote called an InsertPlaceholder plugin. The way in which it works is you put a placeholder in the editor, but it gets replaced with other text/code when the entry is published. The plugin can be found at http://cid-fabdddc5cad93494.skydrive.live.com/self.aspx/Writer%20Plugins/InsertPlaceholder.dll and you just put it in your plugin folder which should be c:\program files\windows live\writer\plugins\.
