Content Rebuilding Upon Upgrading to v5


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Can we please have more details on how content will be changed (rebuilt) with the v5 upgrade?

We already know that spoilers will be updated (and rebuilt?) from divs to details+summary, which is good.

However, the main concern is inline styles, especially those involving text and/or background color. Throughout the lifetime of v4, forums have accumulated many messages that were copied and pasted into the editor, with colors not being removed. Consequently, many messages in v4 contain inline styles that are not visible to users now but will become apparent when we finally get dark mode. For example, this message was copied (CTRL+C, then CTRL+V) from here, and this is how it will look in dark mode:

Could contain: Page, Text

So, the question is, will the content rebuilding task include an option to remove these styles in order to fix this side effect of insufficient style clearing in v4?

Also, more information about content rebuilding plans might help identify potential issues, so we would be grateful if you could share them sooner rather than later. Thank you.

Removing abbr tags would be helpful. I have millions of them coming from the IPS Word Expansion feature. Even if the word itself is removed, the abbr tag remains. The only way to delete it right now is to edit the HTML source code. If the HTML source code isn't available, those abbr tags remain in the posts forever.

We are discussing this internally. Likely a mix of a task that will fix the last few months of data (if required, most posts will be fine) and handling it on the fly when someone edits, quotes, etc.
