Solved Formatting bugs

Post by WizardT October 20th 2023, 5:41 pm

I am running a roleplay forum which revolves around writing posts. People like to spend a lot of time making their posts look good. They use allign, fonts, size, bold, blank paragraphs etc. It's easy when we have the Editor Mode because we don't have to deal with the codes anymore. However, we have encountered A LOT of bugs with the formatting. 
 
1. One of the most annoying bugs is when you seperate text by several blank lines and you use justify. For example you want to do this:
text
text
text
 
But when you post you get this:
text
 
text
 
text
 
We have found out that you need to hit space on each new line in order to keep it. New users don't know this and they always feel annoyed when their text gets lumped together.
 
2. Sometimes new lines appear out of nowhere. For example, the original text might be:
text
text
text

But when you click edit and enter Editor Mode you see this:
text
  
text
 
text
 
Sometimes this is only visible in the Editor Mode and does not affect the original text. But sometimes when you edit and publish new lines appear in the original text too. You have to get back and delete the new lines. Sometimes the new lines double.
 
3. Sometimes when you edit a post the whole font and size changes back to default. You have to edit and apply it again. Sometimes only a sentence or a paragraph looses its font and size.
 
4. Formatting with new fonts is close to impossible. By new fonts I mean this. The script works and you CAN do it but the formatting breaks almost every time. Sometimes the whole font just dissappears when you post and every time you edit it as well. Sometimes when you edit, the font moves only to one of the paragraphs. Sometimes when you edit, all paragraphs but the first one disappear. 
 
In conclusion, it seams that whenever you have fonts, sizes, new lines, allign in a post something breaks. I know this forums are free but we're talking about basic funcitonality. I hope you fix it soon.
 
If you need information about my forum, it's Invision.
  
P.S. Even when I used justify in this post my text got lumped together. I had to go back and put in blank spaces. It's absolutely astounding.

Hi use this JS placed in all pages:

Code:
$(function() {
          if( _userdata["user_level"] != 0 ) {
            $(function() {
              var a = $("#text_editor_textarea"), t;
              a.length && (t = a.val()) && $(function() {
                a.sceditor && a.sceditor("instance") && a.sceditor("instance").val(t);
              });
            });
          }
        });

It is a known bug of the editor, which those of us who use this Forumotion JS have been able to solve
