Line Breaks in Posts
#1
In other forums I'm on, when you finish typing the end of a sentence and click Enter, a new paragraph forms with a line break in between the two paragraphs. On PA2A, no line break occurs, and I wind up with multiple paragraphs that are all next to each other, like one long paragraph. Normally, I go back in and click Enter again, and that restores the line breaks.
You can see how it is in this post - I didn't go back in and put in line breaks.
Any idea why this is happening?

In this post, I put in line breaks by going back in and hitting Enter again.

New line, new paragraph.

New line, new paragraph.

Not sure...it seems to have different quarks with different browsers. I'm still looking into this.

A Reading from the Book of Armaments, Chapter 4, Verses 16 to 20:

Then did he raise on high the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, saying, "Bless this, O Lord, that with it thou mayst blow thine enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy." And the people did rejoice and did feast upon the lambs and toads and tree-sloths and fruit-bats and orangutans and breakfast cereals ... Now did the Lord say, "First thou pullest the Holy Pin. Then thou must count to three. Three shall be the number of the counting and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither shalt thou count two, excepting that thou then proceedeth to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the number of the counting, be reached, then lobbest thou the Holy Hand Grenade in the direction of thine foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it."

the best bet might be to use the default mybb editor over a plugin, since the mybb editor is tested by the developing team.

also, what is this stuff?

I don't know if it's related, or if anyone else has mentioned it, but I'm having issues with clicking to start typing.

See here...
http://www.pa2a.org/thread-so-my-wife-says-to-me?page=2

ETA: No need to click link - here's the "issue"...

When I quote something, it's nearly impossible to click UNDER the quote to start typing.
I have to click IN the quote at the end, hit "enter", which works, but I'm still IN the quote - THEN I hit backspace to remove the "return", and THEN if I cluck UNDER the quote, the cursor appears and I can now type my reply.

Not fun.

I am going to disable the plugin editor and revert to the default editor.  Lets try it for a bit and see if that solves any issues...

ETA: Ok, it's off! Lets see what happens!

I think I'm ok now, and have been for a few days, actually.

Whatever you did, it seems to be good on my end.

That's a lot better than some people I've seen posts that were extremely long without a single line break capital letter or punctuation of any kind I'm glad my browser doesn't do that to me it could get very annoying trying to read a post like that it seems to happen quite often though not too mention incorrect spelling and improper use of words that cause you too read than reread something too see if you read it wrong or if someone means something other then what they wrote that gets annoying to.

(Sorry, I couldn't help myself there).
There are three types of people in the world:
Those who make things happen,
Those who watch things happen,
And those who wonder what happened.
