Solved Hightlight and copy and paste

Post by JH37 on June 24th 2015, 3:18 pm

Technical Details


Forum version : #phpBB3
Position : Administrator
Concerned browser(s) : Internet Explorer
Who the problem concerns : All members
When the problem appeared : When we decided to copy and paste
Forum link : http://tinkscreationworld.forumotion.com/t144-cat-caught-your-tongue-around-1#464

Description of problem

We have set up a game called Cat caught your tongue, and the object of the game is to highlight and copy and paste in a new post and delete one.

However, when we try to highlight the previous post and post in a new post it doesn't come up. Its blank!!

It works if we go to previous post click on edit and highlight and copy and paste that way. But we think that takes to long when we can just can highlight copy and paste the previous post with out clicking on edit.

So my question is how can we do this without clicking on edit every time?

Please help!!
Thank You!!
Jen

Please don't double post. Your post needs to be separated by at least 24 hours before bumping. Please use the edit button instead!

Can you right click the highlighted text and press save?

I guess you can say it is. IS there something I am missing? That its why it might not be able to do what I wanted it too.

Well, if it is image only, that would be why it will not appear in the post just by copying the actual post. You need the bbcode tags as well in order for it to appear (
Code:
[img][/img]
) in the post. This is why it will not work the way you guys are doing it, if it were only text it would work, but because it is an image it won't. Hence why you always have to put it in edit mode for it work.

So it should look like this

[img][url=http://i125.photobucket.com/albums/p69/Jash333/Vivid Imaginations/Games/cat-icon.png[/img]http://i125.photobucket.com/albums/p69/Jash333/Vivid%20Imaginations/Games/cat-icon.png[/img[/url]]

That's what it looks like it has the Img in each side.

Or am I not understanding this?

So you are saying if it has the IMG in each side you should work when you highlight and copy to paste it in the next post?

So when you highlight the images and press copy, you can not paste it in a new post?

I tested it here, and it worked.
