New problems with the way a post is formatted and displayed

nsxtasy Jun 2, 2011 02:56 PM

I just created this post - http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/7875... - and ran into a whole bunch of new formatting problems that I've never seen before.

I should mention, I edited the post several times after entering it, but each time, I copied and saved what I had written, so I wasn't using those awful extra tabs and lines that the software has been creating when you edit a post without copying it from the previous time.

1. Paragraphs ending with a colon (":"). Two of my paragraphs ended with a colon. Instead of displaying a colon, the finished post displayed the two characters "%3". I found that, by adding a space after the colon, I could prevent this from happening and instead have my post displayed with the colon.

2. Dropping the first letter of a paragraph. I have a paragraph that begins with the words, "As you can see, ...". When that's how the paragraph started out, it would not display the capital A at the start of the phrase, and would only display it as "s you can see, ...". I found that, by adding a space before the word "As", I could prevent this from happening and instead have the word As displayed properly.

3. Double-spacing of lists. I have two lists of links at the bottom of the post, and I entered them with single spacing. However, the post displays them double-spaced. I could not find a workaround for this.

    Okay, I'm going to test it now, by copying in the same content as the post but without putting the spaces after the colons or the space before the word As, and leaving the lists of links single-spaced...

    EDIT: Okay, for whatever reason, it formatted the post properly when I just tested it out, without any of those new glitches showing up. < shrug >

    The travel time depends on how you get there - Metra/Pace, or CTA/Pace. It also depends on your connecting time between Metra or CTA and the Pace bus, which may or may not be lengthy. And it depends on where you're leaving from downtown and your distance to the train station to go north. All of which are outlined below. Bottom line, it could take you as little as one hour or as much as two hours, each way, door to door.

    Metra commuter trains leave from the Ogilvie Transportation Center on the west side of the Loop. (I recommend allowing extra time there to check out the French Market located in the station - www.frenchmarketchicago.com ). You'll take the Union Pacific North train to the Wilmette station; the ride takes about 30 minutes if it's not prime commuting hours, and there are some express trains during commuting hours that do it in as little as 23 minutes. The one-way train fare is $3.50, assuming you buy the ticket in the Ogilvie station (there's an extra charge if you buy it on the train). You will then have to catch the Pace #422 bus which takes 3 minutes to get you to Lake and Ridge in Wilmette; Zier's is a few doors south on the west side of the street. The one-way bus fare is $1.75 and for another $.25 you can get a transfer that you can use for 1-2 more rides within two hours (even for a reverse ride on the same route).

    The CTA runs el trains (some of which are elevated, others underground) from downtown to the Linden el station in Wilmette. If it's not prime commuting hours, you will need to take the Red Line to the Howard station, then catch the Purple Line from the same platform and take it to Linden. I'm guessing the train ride from downtown to Linden takes 60-70 minutes. In prime commuting hours, the Purple Line runs express, all the way to downtown Chicago and back; you can either catch the Purple Line along its route and take it all the way to Linden, or for a slightly faster option, you can catch the Red Line downtown and take it north to Fullerton, then catch the Purple Line express there from the same platform and take it to Linden. When you're using the Purple Line express, the ride from downtown to Linden takes 45-55 minutes. The CTA train ride costs $2.25 one-way; for an extra $.25 you can take up to two additional rides within two hours of paying, but to do this you need to load money onto a fare card which you can buy at any el station; paying cash fares won't allow you to transfer. From Linden, you can catch the #422 Pace bus which takes 7 minutes to get you to Lake and Ridge in Wilmette; Zier's is a few doors south on the west side of the street. The one-way bus fare is $1.75 and for another $.25 you can get a transfer that you can use for 1-2 more rides within two hours (even for a reverse ride on the same route).

    As you can see, taking Metra is the faster way to get there, but that depends on where you're located downtown; for example, if you're leaving from the hotel area along the "Mag Mile" of North Michigan Avenue, you can walk to the CTA Red Line in a few minutes, but it may take you 15-20 minutes to take a bus or walk to the Ogilvie Center to catch a train. It also depends on the train and bus schedules.

    The CTA trains run pretty often, with generally no more than 10-15 minutes between trains. However, the Metra trains and Pace buses generally run once an hour outside of prime commuting times. See the links below for schedules.

    Oh, one more thing - Zier's (which I love, and go there often) is a small butcher shop. Yes, they have the finest prime grade meats in the Chicago area, but there isn't all that much to see unless you like looking in the cases at the cuts of meat. There are some excellent butcher shops in and near downtown Chicago if you don't want to go all the way to Zier's; Fox & Obel has excellent meats, and so does Gepperth's. Here are some discussions which recommend additional butcher shops in the city:

      So, it looks like that problem has gone away... and in my original post, my list of links has magically become single-spaced. Which is good!

      HOWEVER... When I go to edit the post just above this one (the one I just typed in a few minutes ago), the edited version has NO line breaks, and appears strung together as all one paragraph in the edit window. More weirdness!

        I just had this trouble on this post:
        http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/788267

        The first letters of my last 3 sentences disappeared; I had to put a space before the letter to fix it. I also had to put a space after a colon to make it appears.

        This is annoying... I hope it gets fixed.

        I just had two more instances in which punctuation marks (a colon and a greater than sign) which appeared correct the first time I typed the post, were changed when I went back to edit it. It also dropped a zero and created an erroneous paragraph break. My post is displaying properly when I first type it in, but when I go to edit it, it changes some punctuation marks without my changing anything myself.

          Here's how they originally looked:
          ---------------------------------------------

          Keep in mind, that drive time of one hour will increase dramatically if it is during prime commuting hours (evening, roughly 3:00-6:30 pm).

          And here's how they looked after editing:

            I'm creating two posts with paragraphs ending in a colon like this:

            I'm going to leave this post alone, and then type the same thing but go back in and edit it to see if it changes the colon.

              I left the previous post alone, and am now typing the same thing, but I will go back in and edit it to see if it changes the colon.

              EDIT: I am editing this post but am not doing anything to change the colon above. If it changes to something else, it's an illustration of the problem.

            Same here - trouble with a dollar sign. Came out OK first time I typed it, but went back to edit and the $ turned into the number 24. Tried to re-edit several times, same problem.

          3. nsxtasy RE: nsxtasy Jun 3, 2011 05:24 AM

            Since one of the problems was dropping the leading capital A in a paragraph, I'm guessing that's what also happened at the end of the first post in this topic

            http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/788099

            where the post is signed "nne". I bet she typed in her name, "Anne", and the formatting dropped the capital A, probably when she went back and edited the post.

                Here's one from the Manhattan board, posted by a user who's not in the habit of misspelling things ( http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/7878... ... see pic).

                Note the colon-turned-%3 at the end of the first sentence. The second and third restaurants are called A Voce; but the A's have gone missing. Ditto for the A in the fourth restaurant, Aquavit, and the D in David Burke Townhouse and Del Posto.

                  Okay just noticed the dropped first letter on a comment I posted 2 sec. ago. Hit the edit to fix and had to add two space bar hits for it to accept one letter correction.

                  Now I know what nsxtasy is talking about!!

                    Yes, this is happening intermittently. I've had it happen to me, and I've noted it on several other posts. The missing letter (usually capitalized) is there when you go into Edit, but once you Save, it's gone....until you go back into Edit and add a space in front of that letter.

                    Frustrating.

                    What's also odd is how it changes times typed with a colon - apparently only the ones on the hour, not on the half hour (and again, only if you go back and edit the post). Watch the sentence below. I will create this post twice, and I will go back and edit the second one.

                    Let's say you want to talk about a restaurant that opens at 5:30 or 6:00.

                    Now I'll create the identical post...

                          I will not edit this post.

                          For example:

                                As a workaround until they fix it, if you have a colon at the end of a paragraph, you can put a space right after it and it won't get changed to %3

                                        Actually I did, nsxtasy. I always Used to add the colon when posting a link address. Like this...

                                        Here's the link:
                                        Link address

                                        I'm not doing that anymore, though.

                                          Interesting that it should happen some times and not others.

                                          You can still use a colon without worries, as long as you put a space after it. Like this...

                                          Here's the link:

                                          Link address

                                          I'm going to edit this post to make sure the colon remains... It does! But it inserted an extra blank line after it, which wasn't in the post when I typed it.

                            I just had something else funky happen, and it's related. I entered a post ( http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/7885... ) and it correctly created links to two Chowhound restaurant listings, one for La Sardine in Chicago IL and the other for Bistro Bordeaux in Evanston IL. When I edited the post, it changed the latter link to a restaurant in California ( http://www.chow.com/restaurants/9134/... )by dropping the two zeros from the URL for the correct link ( http://www.chow.com/restaurants/9134

                            2Fbistro-bordeaux ).

                            I am reporting that post to get the URL fixed, so if the link appears as Bistro Bordeaux again, it's because the Chowhound Team fixed it for me.

                                          I continued to have similar issues last night upon editing this post:
                                          http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/7860...

                                          Several of the Chinese characters were deleted, and some of the accented letters in the Pinyin were replaced by a black diamond with a question mark. I'd never had this problem before, even when editing posts with Chinese. I ended up deleting the post and starting a fresh one, which worked.

                                          I also continued to get the %3 instead of the colon.

                                          I'm going to edit this post and see what happens.

                                          Some test Chinese characters:
                                          油泼面 [yóu pō miàn

                                          ]

                                          糖醋鱼块焙面 [tángcù yú kuài bèi miàn]

                                          EDIT:
                                          Things look better. The only issue I see now is the "]" which is part of "miàn]" is on a different line for some reason.

                                            The bracket thing isn't part of the recent problems -- it's always been like, that and it's a side effect of our URL generator. Just leave a space after the bracket and you'll be fine.

                                              Still having issues with editing and a capitalized letter at the beginning of a paragraph (in this case, the "A" in the word "And") going missing.

                                              Had to add the space in front and put the "A" back on the word, and then save. And it worked then.

                                                Gee, that's weird. I just had that problem (the leading A disappearing) happen to me in the post at http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/7895... but when I tried to replicate it in this post, I can't. Here's that last paragraph without the leading space, and the A doesn't get dropped here, although it did in that other post:

                                                And at some point, what was once new and trendy becomes the classic experience. For example, Sanford is still one of the finest restaurants in the Midwest. It has been around for 21 years, still under the careful eye of chef-owner Sanford D’Amato. Who is to say that it's not the "classic Milwaukee experience" every bit as much as restaurants that have been around longer than that?

                                                  Let me see if I can replicate it by copying and pasting, saving and the editing it.

                                                  OK, so I saved it, and have come back in to edit - i.e., adding this sentence. What does it do to your paragraph with the leading capital A?

                                                  Hmmm....left it as is. So I retyped "And at some point..." and saved it again. Nope. Still there. So maybe they fixed that issue (again)?

                                            I just edited a list of restaurants that looked fine and ran into all three of these problems. In addition to the dropped "A", the letter "D" will be dropped at the beginning of a paragraph. I thought I could fix it by typing two D's, but both were deleted. Lower case A's and D's were left in. I fixed it by adding a hyphen at the beginning of my list items as a bullet.

                                              I think you'll find that you can also fix it by adding a space at the beginning of any paragraph to prevent the letter from being deleted. The space doesn't actually appear, but the word appears normally, without deleting the first letter.

                                              Last Saturday afternoon I uninstalled IE9 and reverted back to IE7. No more editing problems after that...

                                                As noted above, the problem was fixed since then, so if you want to go back to IE9 now, feel free.

                                                This problem is still not fixed. I just had a post with colons at the end of paragraphs changed to %3 again.

                                                  For those of you still experiencing this problem: are all of you using IE9, or does the issue appear in other browsers as well?

                                                  EDIT: Apparently not a browser issue. Please see my post below.

                                                    And let's see if editing my post with a leading "A" in the 2nd paragraph causes it to occur.

                                                    No, didn't seem to. THIS time. :-)

                                                          Well, not a caching issue. I posted this in the Home Cooking WFD thread, and went back in about a half hour later to put in the "ETA" at the bottom - and the ingredients are now double-spaced. No way to make them single spaced yet again.

                                                          http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/7918...

                                                          As a matter of information, the ingredients were copied and pasted from MasterCook, so I'm wondering if that might have something to do with it? Formatting from a website or software that is screwing up the works?

                                                            The erroneous double-spacing of lists after posts are edited has been around for a while and pre-dates the other problems noted above. So I would guess that they are separate problems, so that even though the problems noted above are supposed to have been fixed, the double-spacing hasn't been fixed. That's my guess; standard disclaimer is that I'm not part of Chowhound's Engineering folks so of course I don't speak for them.

                                                              If the issue you're describing is the one I think it is, this is a bit surprising; we were under the impression that the problem was limited to Internet Explorer. Does it add additional spaces each time you edit, or just the first time?

                                                              And @nxtasy, oddly enough the problems are linked, though they should NOT both be appearing at the same time, making the whole business even more bizarre.

                                                              We'll continue to track this issue and let you know when we manage to figure out the real cause.

                                                                2. Edit to add another paragraph. Hit Save.
                                                                3. Post now has ingredients in double-space.
                                                                4. Edit to remove those spaces. Hit Save.
                                                                5. Edit doesn't take.
                                                                6. Tried removing ingredients and re-copying them from MC and saving again.
                                                                7. Didn't work.

                                                                  If you edit without removing the empty lines, is a second layer of empty lines added?

                                                                  1. re: Engineering

                                                                    No extra lines. Just the originals remain.
