Posts can't be formatted?

I assume this is on purpose and the formatting bars didn't just crumple in on themselves and disappear. But just in case, they're gone yo. Keyboard shortcuts don't work either.

    Waluigi strikes again. I sense an ARG to get the toolbar back.

    I've enabled an alternative as a quick fix, hopefully a better one will come after the weekend.

    So the HTML thing is the alternative? Ok, good.

    HTML works, but you have to do it in source view mode. If you don't have the bar, try just doing <i>Italics</i>

    I found an option closer to our old system. test test test this should work

    people who posted in the interim period where we had wysiwyg will have some weird shit when they get quoted but whatevs

  • HenroidHenroid Mexican kicked from Immigration Thread Centrism is Racism :3Registered User regular
    I did have a brief error where quoting a post converted / added a lot of HTML but it's not replicating.

  • TofystedethTofystedeth Registered User regular
    Ahh is that what happened? I noticed when I accidentally pasted an image instead of an image URL it actually went in. I was very confused for a bit.

    Ah, now the other toolbar with the glossy emotes is back. Any ETA on getting all the good PA emoticons back? :bz :rotate:

    When the original BBCode/formatting bar was put back, it worked. But I'm looking at this MS word style bar over the post box and not only do none of the buttons work, but no keystroke shortcuts work either. I've tried this with a clear cache, no adblock, clean browser.

  • WeaverWeaver Who are you? What do you want?Registered User regular
    Also I tried the forums without a stylesheet and had the same result.

    Works for me. I think the problem is on your end.

    Formatting bar appears to be gone now? Is that related to this thread?

  • zerzhulzerzhul Registered User, Moderator mod
    I am getting that too. I assume they are doing an update of some sort.

    Well, turning it off and on again didn't work.

    I have a formatting bar. Is this the one thing my brokeass IE8 through a work proxy can do better than everyone else?

    Formatting bar looks like it's back for me, at least. I mean, everyone probably already knows that, but I figured I'd say it.

  • HeatwaveHeatwave Come, now, and walk the path of explosions with me!Registered User regular
    Is the formatting bar the thing where all the options, like bold and italic, are? If so then mine have been replaced with sqaures.

    It's still working for me. Anyone else having a problem?

    It works fine in this thread, but temperamentally in others.
    It seems like the script associated with it sometimes fails to load (or perhaps initialized) in larger threads, and even hard refreshing doesn't fix it.

    Yeah, on larger threads, none of this is passing through the ECMAscript interpreter:
    BindShortcuts: function(TextArea) {
             ButtonBar.BindShortcut(TextArea, 'bold', 'ctrl+B');
             ButtonBar.BindShortcut(TextArea, 'italic', 'ctrl+I');
             ButtonBar.BindShortcut(TextArea, 'underline', 'ctrl+U');
             ButtonBar.BindShortcut(TextArea, 'strike', 'ctrl+S');
             ButtonBar.BindShortcut(TextArea, 'url', 'ctrl+L');
             ButtonBar.BindShortcut(TextArea, 'code', 'ctrl+O');
             ButtonBar.BindShortcut(TextArea, 'quote', 'ctrl+Q');
             ButtonBar.BindShortcut(TextArea, 'post', 'tab');
          },
    
    as no events are triggered by these key combos.

    Managed to find some reproducible examples after random testing on more than one machine/browser:

    buttonbarplus.js loads and executes properly in this thread:

  • bowenbowen How you doin'? Registered User regular
    Works fine for me, though Icy may have fixed it in the past half hour.

    not a doctor, not a lawyer, examples I use may not be fully researched so don't take out of context plz, don't @ me

    My formatting bar still looks like this for all threads
