Color Text Editing Issue

Post by Guest on September 24th 2014, 5:11 am

Hey,

Earlier today I was making a post on my Forums, and I accidentally misspelled something so I went back to: Edit and corrected it. Then when I pressed: Send (aka Save), the color was changed to it's original setting. So I had to use the Color again and then experimented a bit more. Then I pressed: Edit once more. And then did not change anything and pressed: Send again. And it took away the color I chose for the text, again bringing it back to it's original setting. I am not sure if this is a glitch but the text color was erased, basically "reset". And is there any way to fix this glitch? If so, thanks, and farewell.

Hello,

Thank you for reporting your problem to use!

Please try and give the following Question's an Answer:
Q1, Can i please ask you give us Your forum URL so we have this to hand to run some tests as this is not in your profile.

Q2, Do you have any JavaScript's that change the text color on your forum ?
TRY ME, Go to ACP Modules Tab    HTML & JAVASCRIPT Javascript codes management Turn off all your Javascript's  and save Then try your edit again and see if this happens again.

Q3,
Do you have any codes placed in your CSS files that change your text ?

Q4, have you tried a different browser like Firefox or IE and seen if the problem is still happening

Were you using the WYSIWYG mode?  If you were, sometimes it will remove the tags when you edit a post.

Is the last button on your text editor gray or white? 

Gray = WYSIWYG mode
White = Source Mode

I still don't understand... I tried doing the coding but it seems it won't work. I don't think I am putting the code in the right places. Can you explain and possibly copy and paste where and how I need to organize it?

When you are in WYSISWYG mode, you do not see the BBCode tags.   In source mode, you do see the BBCode tags.

Examples:

WYSISWYG - Red

Source -
Code:
[b][color=#ff0000]Red[/color][/b]

However, if you want to turn off WYSIWYG mode from the admin panel (causing it to turn off on the entire forums), go to:

Administration Panel => General => Forum => Configuration => WYSIWYG Mode: OFF
