Forum Guidelines Bug

Guest D.San

Recommended Posts

I found a bug while running a demo board and I don't think it's been reported before. When creating a "forum rules" section for a particular forum & you add a list, it breaks it. How do I explain this, maybe a picture would be best.

This one has no list:


This one has a list:


It breaks with the LIST and various other BBCode elements. Do you see the break? I hope you understand what Im trying to point out. :unsure:

I shouldn't need to, Cinek. When using the editor, it should automatically do these things. If the BBCode is available, it shouldn't break when used. BTW, I tried your method and it didn't fix the problem. It breaks it even more, actually.

Here is an example of what it looks like after I add the paragraph HTML tags (Yes, I did it right. I work with HTML and CSS all the time).

It was YOUR idea, Cinek. Either way it's broken. The LIST html above is from the WYSIWYG editor in the AdminCP when I view the BBCode and not the WYSIWYG editor. You're not helping nor do I think you understand the bug that this IS.

But that's not a LIST. Not in the true FORM of a list. This is a LIST using the BBCODE built INTO IP.BOARD for a LIST:

  1. Item 1
  2. Item 2
  3. Item 3
  4. Item 4
  5. Item 5
The code IPBOARD uses for that is THIS:

[*]Item 1
[*]Item 2
[*]Item 3
[*]Item 4
[*]Item 5

Are you getting it yet?

This BREAKS the "Rules" section above at the top of the forum as does various other BBCode attributes.

Regardless of the work-around(s) possible, this is still a bug. If I wanted to "work around" this bug, I could. The fact is, I don't. This is a bug in a piece of software. Did I ask for a work-around? I reported a bug and this has turned into an argument. Enough.

Also, if I INDENT (using the WYSIWYG editor in the AdminCP) something in the forum rules (such as your idea in the previous post), it still breaks. It's a BUG. Nuff' said.

It's been there since 2.1.0 and hasn't been fixed yet...

There isn't an easy way to fix it I'm afraid. We could get rid of the p tag inside the forum rules block...and then it's instantly fixed. However, then the rules don't look very appealing (no lighter color background to offset the font colors).

It's quite a minor issue. Feel free to report it in the *proper* place (as per the forum rules here), but it's not a high priority.
