Chatbox breaks with spoilers

Post by Sleepyyawn on August 18th 2011, 12:11 am

Lately there has been a problem with people putting images in spoilers and the box "breaking." It will only show the spoiler and messages before it. The only way to see what everyone is saying is to open the spoiler, where of course we have to turn off auto-refresh. We've dealt with this problem by closing the chat until the spoiler goes into the archives. It only seems to be on This forum. Help?

No, it stops the entire chat so the last thing you see is the spoiler. If you open the spoiler then the rest of the chat shows up.

well not all bbcode will always work in the chat,
i tested the spoiler on mine and it worked.

forumotion chats are known to be Glitchy at times, we can pass it on to a tech to let them know.

can you get a screen shot so i can see exactly what it's doing and looks like.
Because like i said i tested in on my forum and it worked fine, however i only did it with text not images, so i will try that now. but yes please get a screen shot so i can see what it looks like when it's messing up.

info added

I think i know what it is, you are probably exceeding the limit for whats allowed to be typed/pasted in a chat.. you can only fit so many letters/characteristics.

so if some one is trying to put a bunch of images in with a spoiler the same way as a post, it's not going to work and only show so much of it rendering the spoiler option incomplete. In other words,It's not going to take effect because there is to much content and it's not even allowing the spoiler tags to completely wrap the content: it's getting cut off.

so you have to keep it small with only a couple images with spoiler tags and it should be fine. Also remember you can not use html in the chat either, and all images have to be bbcode img tags.

i just just tested it and that what happened to me ,, it works fine if it's just a couple images. but if you exceed the type bar limits, then it will be messed up every time and only show the maxim limit of characteristics that the type bar allows.

That all i can think that it's doing to you, if not then please give me a screen shot.

Thanx
