Problem with formatting?

Post by chris » Tue Aug 19, 2008 10:59 am

This could be a forum code problem the board has no control over, but here goes:

If I write a post, and then highlight a part to format (text size, colour, etc. ), on completing this the cursor jumps to the top of post. On lengthy posts this becomes quite annoying, and I'm having to manually input the , , etc.

This happens in Firefox, I have tried IE where it doesn't happen.

(I was never particularly good at programming, so have no idea if this is fixable or how time-consuming it is)

Does it on mine sometimes (explorer).

Don't know why, cos its only now and then. Probably just a glitch.
You can judge the whole world on the sparkle that you think it lacks.
Yes, you can stare into the abyss, but it's staring right back.

I think it's pretty much across the board. It comes and goes on mine (though it only happens on rare occasions)

I find using the arrow keys to reach the word(s) you want highlighting, then manually typing in the code e.g. [img],%20then%20using%20the%20arrow%20keys%20to%20get%20to%20the%20end%20of%20the%20sentance%20before%20manually%20finishing%20the%20code[/img] helps a great deal.
