Markup not recognised on Forums page

Post by djross »

I tried to post a reply to a thread, but when I posted it, the markup language was not converted to formatting. To illustrate:

[quote]Here's [b]some[/b] text I've tried to [i]format[/i] using the buttons [u]provided[/u].[/quote]

In fact it looks like posts using markups disappeared from the forums altogether.

Here's my recent post in which I've used some [code] brackets viewtopic.php?p=69377#p69377

Gone.

Yeah, this happened with an upgrade to some backed software. We'll be looking into it very soon!!

Sorry about this issue!

After several 100 of reviews, I'm sure I know that button, yep :)
And activating that button at this moment gives you an error message "Your message contains too few characters."

I see that it has been four months since I reported this issue. Hopefully it can be rectified soon.

I don't know how close the admins are to fixing this/updating the forums, but can I suggest a note somewhere prominent to the effect of "[technical difficulties] may result in some posts disappearing in whole or part. Will be fixed soon etc".

I suggest this because: i) the regular occurrence of new threads relating to this issue indicates even some of the site's most senior users don't bother reading bug threads when posting a new bug in the bug forum; ii) the forum gets a lot of referrals from google results, i.e. from non-users who in most cases certainly wouldn't be checking the bug forum to see why the post(s) relevant to their interests remain partially or completely blanked out.
