so...i made a big post in another topic. upon re-reading it (i had posted, not previewed it) i wanted to tweak a couple of things, so i went into the edit mode. i did my tweaking, then hit save, but only HALF the post appeared!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

luckily, i had copied my text (i've lost too many long posts not to) and was able to paste it and then do my tweaks, but that is a disturbing occurance.

did you see the entire post when you were editing? or did it only disappear after you re-submitted the post?

PeteRRR sounds more like my GP every post. Does it only hurt when you breathe?

Peter, I'm not sure if the whole message was there. i only tweaked a few things in the first half, didn't check the whole thing. the edit window, by the way, is disturbingly small.

Not sure that it matters much, but it looks like maybe posting order gets mixed up if one person is posting while another person is editing an adjacent post. Like I said, not really a big deal, but maybe a clue in sorting out any other unexpected behavior.

I suppose it wouldn't take much to make the edit window bigger... But I think I know what caused the problem and will fix it in the next milestone.

How do you post a big link like this aand make it work?

Do you need < > on either side or the likes thereof?

The problems are the underscores. Please wait for the fix. In the meantime, there's utilities on the net that let you zip long URLs into new short ones.

Sorry it has taken so long for me to fix these formatting bugs. I've made a few fixes now that should help you put in URLs like

  • and
  • not
  • break
  • lists
