Bug 4 U
7/14/05, 7:24pm
I found a good one...When I try the quote thingy and go back to edit it changes the first part of the command and the command in the instruction box. I get a largely black screen with choking smileys and frowney in there.

I have known about this one for awhile... and being as I have held it off for awhile, I just fixed it.

Internet Explorer and some other browsers (especially older versions) interpret [AMPERSAND]quot as a quotation mark... everything would be fine when the command was first typed... but if you went to edit, or if someone was replying to a message with the command in it, it would be changed to &"e-, which wouldn't be recognized by the software, and because the -quote& would not change, the program would close a box that never existed. So, you get this weird looking configuration.

I have now changed the [AMPERSAND]quote- command to [AMPERSAND]box--box[AMPERSAND], FYI...

I corrected about 30 posts that had the old command... I'm too tired to keep going, but I'll do the rest some day.

I don't understand..was this an internal change or do we, the users, have to do something different now to make the quote box?

Now you type in the word "box" instead of the word "quote".

Just a new internal change... if you encounter one of your older messages and it has the old quote command still in there, if you get the gumption, go ahead and edit the message and change it to box...

I plan on doing this myself when I get a spare hour and feel like editing... I went through about 30 messages last night... I could write a program to do it, but just not worth the time and effort on that for about 100 messages among the 12000+ stored here.

/fingers remain crossed that IE, Mozilla, and Netscape will not come up with an [AMPERSAND]box command...
