The Testing Thread

Paulustrious Sep 12, 2010 04:27 AM

I searched to find if there was a thread in which you could test things. I had a another member ask me a couple of things and I wanted to check out a few things before I replied. I didn't want to accidentally post in a real thread so I created this one. So the moderators can delete it if they wish, or leave it if they feel it serves a purpose.

Possibly they should consider their own sticky version.

                              I was trying to post this

                              I started trying to post it last night - couldn't post it, despite trying with two different browsers.
                              I then tried again today -- still couldn't post it.

                              So I posted a simple, one- or two-line sentence. That worked. I went back and immediately edited that out and substituted the longer passage. For some strange reason, that worked.

                                            I have had the same issue today, Cynsa, on the What's For Dinner thread. However, I'm not trying to post pictures; I'm just trying to POST, and I get the circular go-round without anything posting. Not sure if it's going on on various boards, or just the Home Cooking board. Figured I'd try a new post here to see if it actually goes through.

                                                    The boards don't use UBB code. If you want to attach a photo, you have to use the upload function beneath the posting window.

                                                      Do people like this board format? No offense but it's just different than what I'm used to and am not getting the better part.

                                                                            An edit or two wouldn't move the parenthesis back to place.

                                                                            I am certain I had the issue again a couple times soon after, this time with a hyphen starting the next paragraph. Problem is I don't remember which thread, and I think I just edited the whole thing out at the time so there's no evidence left.

                                                                            While we're at it, I was also having problems here

                                                                            I would type ' 800/4K ' which somehow replaced with ' 8

                                                                            2F4K '
                                                                            I was using a Mac at the time, and I don't think the problem repeated on my usual PC, though I guess we'll see with this post.

                                                                            1. re: cowboyardee

                                                                              Regarding your 0's magically turning into newlines and garbage:

Unfortunately, your browser cache may be holding onto an older version of the offending file; try clearing your cache. If that second problem persists, please let us know.

                                                                                  In my experience having a closing parenthesis ) followed just by a new line ("hard return") ALWAYS moves the closing parenthesis to the new line. Putting in a space (as you suggest) fixes that. This has been going on for quite a while, at least a year? Or more?

When you first make the post, and it shows it to you within the thread, it's actually just a dummied up view. You're still seeing the thread as it was when you last loaded it, and your new post doesn't have a reply button. As soon as you reload the page, the reply button should appear.
