I had a couple of concerns at first, but Firefox works fine. Did you follow Nadine's instructions in her blog about the update, and did you try clicking the icon in the upper left corner of the editor to turn on enhanced editing? I hate to see someone resorting to using one of the Evil Empires products unnecessarily (although frankly they aren't what they used to be. Far more irritated by Google and the like nowadays).

Yes MAC..I did try...cleared out the cache, cookies...everything, then I hard started up again. Firefox won't let me use fonts, smileys, etc..and gave me a weird font. I went to IE, and it seems to be working fine now...so yeah..I gotta use the evil emipre to be with my family here..but its well worth it!

 

Thanks for your help, and everyone's as well.. :thmup:

But did you click the button to shift to enhanced editing mode? After the update everyone appears to have been shifted to the basic mode by default, and you have to click the icon in the upper left corner of the text editor to shift back. It seems unlikely that you have a unique problem.

The weird font is a sign that you are in the wrong mode.  

Click the little switch icon (upper left of your compose screen menu bar)

This will toggle it back into the mode you want and make your emoticons available again

I can post using Firefox but still nothing fancy

Did you read the above conversation?

I see something else about the change that is unfortunate. If you need to cut and paste a quote you have to shift into the basic mode, and in the process you lose the date stamp. I just experienced this with my reply to Princeton Tiger above (which I wouldn't have made, by the way, if I had realized that you were "patrolling" in the vicinity). I did the multi-quotes in the wrong order, flipped them, and no dates.

yes using GC instead of Firefox

Well obviously you can use whatever browser you want. I was replying to your post about using Firefox in which you sounded like you were trying to use Firefox but had the same problem that I did. It works fine.

I appreciate you letting me know how this works.  I know they intended some changes to the editor to make html easier and also to allow pasting without code possible

 

I must say I appreciate it when code is stripped out of pasted text

I'm confused. I know nothing about working with html, and I don't know what you mean by "allow pasting without code possible". I hadn't noticed code being IN any text I've pasted previously. If you are talking about something being copied from another website coming in with funky formatting, that never bothered me - just grab it all and change the font with one click. That was never as irritating as the following:

 

I just quoted someone and wanted to eliminate all but one line of their quote in order to save space and be clear about what I was responding to. People do this constantly. With the update, editing their quote locked the cursor into the quote box. The only way to get out was to shift to basic mode. I had to write my reply in basic mode, because shifting back to enhanced locked me into the box again. And of course once again the process lost me the date/time stamp, which is annoying because the information is useful.

 

Is all that a Firefox glitch, or an intended modification that is reflective of something that can be advantageous? I don't get it, and I'm finding it pretty frustrating. I still see people here and there who are clearly stuck in basic mode and don't know to get out. If people are having problems with that, what happens when people run into the quote editing issue? This isn't exactly intuitive.

Getting wierder. I tried editing a quote in another thread, and it did NOT lock me in the quote box. So I went back to the post that had given me difficulty, and the problem recurred. Perhaps quotes made prior to the update are coded differently - similar to my problem with the link in old notifications.

 

That's pretty wacky considering that the update brought not a single visible or functional change to the website.

Do you mean you edited the content of a quote and that caused the the problem with not being able to move your cursor out of the quote you were editing?

That is correct. If I quote a long post I will often delete items that I'm not responding to. Sporadically since the update I have had a problem with not being able to get the cursor back down to the clean space below to write my comments.

 

In contrast to my previous post, this has now happen when quoting posts generated after the update as well as older ones - but it is inconsistent. When it happens you can resolve the problem by shifting to the other mode, but of course when you come back you lose the date and time stamp.

thanks Mac.  I have tried to replicate this issue but, since it is sporadic.......I have not been able to

I do know that in this update to the site, IP board is starting a transition code wise.  Transitions are always painful.  But on the upside, this company is always very good about fixing bugs so, my expectation is that as we move forward things will get better and better.

 

I will keep an eye on this.  Sounds like it has to do with that toggle button

I have been able to replicate this.  If I first switch modes and then put the cursor inside the quoted text and then switch back, I am not able to get out of the quote.

 

You are correct, when this happens, if you toggle to the code view, put your cursor after the end quote, toggle back to the not code view.......you are able to enter your post after the shortened quoted post.

 

So, it sounds like to me for some reason..........sometimes the site is confused as to which mode you are in.

 

This sort of thing has happened to me in the past, I'm not sure it's related to the upgrade.

 

I will keep an eye on it though.

 

Good news is you know how to get out of that mode

    • Supe..I appreciate the effort ...... 3 things..come to mind   Of the 3 vets Boston would LOVE to give us for PG, ..Avery Bradley has quality..a former all-star Unless I have misread his birth date, Paul George will be 27 next season..... all next season...His birthday is May 2. He will eventually be better than LeBron because LeBron will decline..its inevitable. LeBron will be 33 next year   ..and if, we do your deal and, as you say, we are competitive in the East for the title in 3 years and, since he's a solid shooter with insane wingspan  Fultz proves to be even better than Paul George..(lets say that happens) .... ...Fultz will, in 3 years,  be one year from free agency and we will have to get a big name free agent or he will walk.(sound familiar?)   The whole thing is just kicking the can down the road.....and not trying to win now Eventually, you have to go for it. I believe, as I know you know, that time is now..next year..... 2017-2018  
    • To be fair, the team he was on doesn't exactly match up well against those better teams    But I see your point 
    • My tastes vary between Metal to Death Metal to Hard Rock to Rap to R&B.   So right now..... Favorite Metal tune all-time:  "Orion" by Metallica - even though no vocals, perfect blend of musicianship Favorite Death Metal tune all-time:  TIE!  "Biomech" by Allegaeon and "Proponent For Sentience II: The Algorithm"  by Allegaeon - I know you don't know them but take my word for it Favorite Hard Rock tune all-time:  "Unchained" by Van Halen (not Van Hagar) - so many by VH but it's my fav Favorite Rap tune all-time: "Nuthin But a G Thang" by Dre/Dogg - that intro tho; I don't smoke but if I did I could see myself doing it with this playing in the background LOL Favorite R&B tune all-time:  "This Is How We Do It" by Montell Jordan, although "Congratulations" by Post Malone is making a run for me right now
    • You just don't get the concept of the matching salaries required in NBA trades... If NY wanted to trade Carmelo to us they would have to take matching salaries.. .....they would then release the players with expiring contracts they didn't want.   Understand?
    • I've worked third shift a couple times prior to my current job, both at an airport and in a factory. I always had a hard time getting adequate sleep no matter how dark I made the room, lol.  Just knowing it was daytime threw me off.   My current line of work is hard on my sleep schedule....I never really go into a deep sleep, and get woken up often, even when I'm home. I've been an insomniac for years though, since high school really, friends used to call me a vampire because I was always up late into the night wrenching on my cars or just hangin out, lol.

    •   Sorry to keep harping on the Irish thing, but did you know the horseshoe has seven points on it?  (The Colts horseshoe, anyway.  Actual shoes for horses depend on the farrier).   Seven is considered a lucky number...  Lucky.  Luck.  I'm telling you, you picked the right team to root for.   7    
    •   Don't hold Boston against the Irish.  It's not our fault.    We love our green, which makes Indiana a tearmann.   I love it that you chose to root for an underdog instead of the Pats.  I don't think it's coincidence that you became a fan around the time Luck got drafted to the Colts.  That's providence.     Horseshoe?  Luck?  Four-leaf clover?  Come on.  Hoosier Hospitality has roots in Irish fun-lovery.  If you're lucky enough to be Irish, you're lucky enough!  May the luck of the Irish be with you!
