Problem with HTML tags

Postby Starlightslk » Tue Oct 25, 2011 11:55 am

Up until yesterday I have been able to use basic HTML tags (e.g. <b><br><i><a herf>) to format my cosplay descriptions but starting yesterday every time I add them and save it deletes the <b> tag entirely and replaces all <br> tags with <br />

It dose this to new cosplays I'm adding as well as when I edit and save an older one that used to have the proper formatting. I disregarded it at first because before the system would ever once in a while randomly delete all my HTML tags ad I would have to re-type them in but that usually fixed the problem. Now no matter how many times I re-input them the results are exactly the same.

I have been able to get some line spacing, but no bold and if I have to edit something I have to go through and fix the tags each time just to keep that line spacing.

I figured I should post it up here and see if there was a solution or something for this issue.

Thank-you so much for your time! :mrgreen:

I just checked and the <a href> tag appears to be working still.

Basic tags should be working again. You don't have to put in the break tags anymore either - just hit enter and it'll automatically convert it into a line break.

(<br /> is the same as <br>, just more semantically correct)

Awesome! That's an incredibly helpful change. :D

heh, I didn't know that about <br /> since this was the first time I ever saw it, it's definitely a good thing to know. :mrgreen:

Thank-you so much! <3

<br /> is the XHTML format of <br>

If you want the page to be well-formed in any case, using <br /> is advised.
