Problems with posting your posts?
« on: August 14, 2018, 04:53:37 PM »
Many of you have noticed that when we post here we used to get the spaces between the paragraphs like we should be getting, but now just get a jumbled year long post.....no separating the paragraphs any more.

Resulting in this look:


In order to get the required spacing you need to hit the enter key 3 times or write it out in your text editor then copy/paste it into the posting window.

That is just no fun cause for me I tend to forget then it takes longer to post...I am lazy!

So a work around that will take getting the hang of and remembering to do is for me much easier.....Just click the little arrow box (see image).



Your posting window will show you the mess you wrote or a blank window if just starting to post. Type your stuff in with spaces where needed and then to check to see if it looks right just click the Preview button to the right of the Post button.


Once you have it the way you want it to look then hit Post and it will let us read it too.

Hope this helps cause I have contacted SMF and on the off chance TinyPortal and the latter can't make it happen on their forum and SMF claims it is doing things the right way and it must be my comp...but there are many of you that it is happening to also (which I told them to no avail) and you all do not have my computer...LOL

Oooooooooooooooooooooh. So, it's NOT just me going senile. I THOUGHT I remembered this not happening before.  :shrug:


Don't get me wrong. I'm still going senile I think. It's just that it's apparently not evident in THIS case.  :tearlaugh:

Thanks DA.

I have no idea what you're talking about, Mary.  :lostme:

I don't have any problems.

Is it a browser issue? Or is it the SMF?

It drove me up the friggin wall to say the least. Getting nowhere with the forum creators I ave tried many things aside from reinstalling the forum with new files...although as soon as they do a forum update for security or whatever, I will see if that straightens things out...LOL

Ya never know. But for now this work around is the best I came up with without finding a way to let them experience the same thing  :phfft: :ifonly:

Well that is what they said it must be my comp, SMF claims it does what it's supposed to do but it does it on their forum too, at PFD forum and here but not at some of the other SMF forums. It happens with Chrome, IE, FF, and Safari on my mac and Dawn's pc and Crystal's too.

I heard where some will experience it with FF and not the others, some with Chrome  and not the others and it is not just here but everywhere.

So beats me but I know there are others out there with the same issue. And it was just after this last update to both the Portal and forum. The portal is ruled out since it is not with the most current software due to it going to create getting used to its new thing....the side blocks mainly.

I typically don't have an issue posting in a forum like this but, when I am post a pic and putting commentary below it, it seems to all want to run together.

Every once in a while I just get extra line spaces which just means I wind up doing a quick modify to clean it up a touch.

The Gallery works totally differently than the threads in here, Mike. That's not a glitch. It's how it's always worked. In the Gallery, it will all run together unless you use spaces in the right places. Edit it as J said, but didn't say how.

Pretend this text is in the description box:

Say this is some text that I'm writing in the gallery. If I
want to control the length of the lines (Return)
I would break it like this. About one and 2/3s line in the
box equals one decent length line. (Return)
(Return)
If I want another paragraph then I have to hit the Return
button again. (Return)
(Return)
You don't really type (Return) but hit the Return button.
Try it!

"enter" or "return" twice eh Ray? Yeah. I think that is what I've had to do in the past too. No idea why one should have to though.  :shrug:

Well, I guess because otherwise it just keeps going and going :tearlaugh:

Don't you do that when you type anyway? It can't read your mind...yet.

:grin: And would you really want it to?
