1 Pixy,

The funky html gizmos don't seem to be working at the jawa report.  Stop me if I'm getting too technical wink .  They look like they work until you press 'post'.  Then they all disappear.  Even if you type in the (i)(/i)-type  html code yourself.


(just seeing if they work here)

It just occurred to me that it may be because I chose the black background for mypetjawa and there may just be something wrong with that setup.  But I've already typed this much...

2 Hmmm.  They work here like a charm.  Oh well.  Keep up the good work, my Australian friend!

3 Oh.  I think I know why - people were abusing them at Ace's site and you're running the same comment engine as Ace (an earlier version than here).

I think I can fix that for you.

Your front page is time travelling. Seems to have lost a year and a half worth of posts. (Oddly enough the "recent comments" column is normal, which is how I found this post so I could comment on it.)

5 Ah, nown it's back to normal. A moment ago when I loaded it, the top post was from September 2012.

6 I will second Steven's bug report, only mine occurred a day or two ago, and in my case the TARDIS landed in early May, 2011. It resolved itself a few minutes later.

7 Thanks.  Not entirely sure how that happens, but I'll look into it.

8 While we're bugging...

Strange happenings with the post editor, too.  The "B" and "I" buttons formerly inserted "span style=..." tags, but now add inline "b" and "i", unless you open the html window and hit "apply." That will change the tags to "span".  Also the "Indent" button, which formerly added 'span style="margin-left:20px" ' (incrementing by 20 each time you pushed it), now adds a layer of 'blockquote' tags instead.  "Apply" doesn't fix this.

There's also a focus problem: When I do a block paste (CTRL-V) into the text window, focus jumps to the surrounding page, and I have to click back into the text to resume.  (I see this same thing happens with the comment editor.)

And the old problem with curly left-double-quotes """ being saved as straight double-quotes is still present.  Since I like to use double quotes in my TITLEs, this produces all sort of HTML confusion.  (Workaround:  use two singles "‘‘".)

9 Weird as it may sound, the editor hasn't changed.  I'll test it with the latest version of Firefox and see if I can find out what's going on.
