It works great for me. No problems to report. It also saves a lot of headaches when typing posts using lots of UBB coding and the like.

Yes, you're despicable, and... and picable... and... and you're definitely, definitely despicable. How a person can get so despicable in one lifetime is beyond me. It isn't as though I haven't met a lot of people. Goodness knows it isn't that. It isn't just that... it isn't... it's... it's despicable.

He's bending the space near his posts, Jeff. Duh!

Okay, Charles, I found a problem. I typed a really long post for an Officers Lounge thread and clicked on Preview Post to check it out. When the popup appeared, half of the post I had written was missing. It looked like the apostrophe in "don't" screwed it up. The last of my post on preview appeared in preview form as, "...don%2"

I hadn't used and apostrophe earlier in the post; that was the first occurence. The apostrophe changed to a "%2" and ate everything after it. When I pressed Add Reply, though, the post I typed came up perfectly.

This has nothing to do with post preview functions, but I was wondering O mighty Tallest, if it would be possible for you to tweak the PM email notification code so that it doesn't send you the entire PM text in the notification (thus negating the need to check one's PMs)?

Siegfried, can you post the URL to that thread so I can look at the post? Thanks.

Shik, I could do that, but I need to use the stock email templates..

Here is the link: http://flare.solareclipse.net/cgi2/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=10;t=002240;p=2

It's the really long one near the middle of the page. As I said, it posted fine, but the preview of the post was funky.

Is there a limit as to how many lines of the post can be seen on preview? In this thread in the General Sci-Fi Discussion area, I made a moderately long post. When I previewed it, the preview was missing the last two or three lines of the post I had written. And the apostrophes came out all right, too.

If there is some sort of limit to the amount of the post that can be previewed, this could be related to the earlier problem I noted. It looks like I was only able to preview a set amount of my posts.

It seems to cut off at 950 characters or so. Bizarre.

I've got something that may or may not be a bug. When I try the post preview, it runs all of the lines together by taking out the returns. Everything's still readable, but it's all blended into one paragraph and gets a little hard to follow.

It could also be browser-specific. I'm using Netscape 4.77.

Also, and a bit off topic, why is there an extra line or two when you quote someone? Does using the quote feature automatically add a line?

Actually, I should say space. It's like someone hit "return" a few times too many
