Question About Links in Posts

Is this the right forum to put this questions and observations?

The system recognizes certain word and put in a link on that word. But the link to Panama Canal doesn’t work.

I write my text in Word and with that corrects my spelling. When it’s ready I copy the text in Word and paste it in the input textbox where I write my thread. That textbox have also a spelling function and nearly 50% of the words get a red line. Do the textbox feel that I have written the text in a Swedish version of Word and then think that it should be a Swedish text.

When I put a picture of type .gif in may thread, the system change it to .jpg. I hade a .gif picture with a size of 18k, the system change it to .jpg an it grows to 110k plus I get all the destructs that .jpg gives.

If I write a text with many paragraphs, the last paragraph gets another font. If I change the editor mode in the textbox to code, then I can see that the system have put in extra commands in the last paragraph just for changing font.

Re: Bugs in Forum Program ?

OH NO!! SAY IT AIN'T SO. NOT BUGS IN THE FORUM!!!

Oh, sorry.

Actually, the only reason I'm posting is I see that 1) You are a relatively new member and 2) It's been a day since you posted this, but no one has answered.

The folks that run the forum are usually very responsive, so they must be off on their boats, or rushing to get ready for Hurricane Irene, or in the head, or something equally important.

I'm sure they'll respond shortly.

And, yes, this was the right place for you to post this...

Re: Bugs in Forum Program ?

Lars, you have raised several issues.

Firstly your posts do underline key words with links that work on CF, see attached pic.

Which browser do you use? I switched to Google Chrome last year and now really like it. It underlines any spelling mistakes I make as I type which helps to see the errors. Since it will run alongside other browsers operating a the same time, you could install it and tell it you are English. Worth a try.

Not sure what is going on with the gif to jpg or the font but I will raise it.

Pete

Re: Bugs in Forum Program ?

They're not "Bugs"... They're Features!


I use Firefox (running on a Linux platform) and don't have the mentioned features. But it does do a spell check and underline topics. It should underline "Hurricane"

If you copy and past from another source the font will follow. And unless you change it, anything you type after the paste will be in that font.

Re: Bugs in Forum Program ?

I run Firefox under Windows XP.

All text (so far) in this reply is written in Word and the font Times New Roman. And the only redline in Word is under the word Firefox. But, as you can see, none of the text in the textbox is in this font.

Now, this last paragrph, i have written i the textbox. But the box dont work inte the same way today as yesterday.. I cant switch editor mode.

Lars L,
If you just use the quick reply box you don't have full control. go to advanced edit to do everything.

Re: Bugs in Forum Program ?

Usually I use the post reply and I know that I can change each word (I think it’s a feature), but if I don’t want to change anything just past the text, then only the last paragraph get the style that the origin text has.

Bugs? Here?


I tried to duplicate the issue on Safari and Chrome (but without Swedish version of MSWord) and could not replicate it
