Solved Code changes and addons when saving in editor

Post by Pete21 on February 17th 2015, 6:21 pm

Hi,
I was wondering what I am doing wrong here or if a bug has appeared lately.
I have been running on www.nortexsimracing forum since 2008

Lately some weird things are happening and I have not made any changes in the section:
Display/Generalities/Homepage Message

When I change the url link to an image and save, the editor adds all kinds of gibberish to the code and a lot of "/"
All looks good and when I click save, the editor has added a bunch of useless code. Don't know if I am making myself clear here. LOL
Not sure if it is the browser (Firefox) doing this or the editor. I was able to finally get it going again but am afraid of making changes.
Problem just started this Sunday. Did not do any changes to PC, browser, page, etc...
I do not have the editor in WYSYWYG mode either.
Is there a way that all that is typed in this section stays the original way?
Thanks
Pete

its the editor it does it with some code .. it done it to me multiple time ... the good thin is as long as your code is good when you click save it will work fine .. bad news you have to keep a backup in notepad of your code for when you want to edit it because it does not display back correctly ... im unsure of what causes this error but i also wish that they would solve this issue

Thanks for the answer. At least I do not feel all alone anymore! LOL
This is what I am doing right now. Saving in Notepad and constantly making backups.
I make the changes in Notepad and then copy and paste the whole thing hoping the dreaded editor saves it correctly. Seems to work but it is added work for nothing. Even if it works, lines get all messed up and the original neat appearance of the original code ends up looking like a real mess.
Won't rehash an old story but how I miss the old text editor. LOL

It is working right now and always did somewhat before last weekend.
Here it is in sort of a messy state.

well something else you could do would be to put the code in a html page and put it in a iframe in the homepage message


Code:
<iframe src="urltothehtmlpage" style="border:none;width:100%;height:800px;"></iframe>
