Well didn't know where to post, so here's where it goes.

BBCode view is seriously borked when typing a post. Just typing this I had to put it in HTML view because it wouldn't let me properly goto another line. There also seems to be no way to turn it off by default. (not disable)

After previewing, it automatically switches back to BBCode view if you were in HTML view.

While in BBCode view, it makes a big text box around your text and is very hard to edit the post at times. It places a 4 way arrow "move" instead of the text I beam most of the time.

Previewing a post or editing a post locks up Google Chrome. (But not starting a new post)
This does not happen on Internet Explorer 10. (what I'm using atm)

"Upload a file" button does not do anything and won't go away until previewing or submitting the post.
Gallery does not work
Download button (and maybe normal buttons) do not accept links with spaces in them (when it has to use percent sign to denote a space)

When posting images and previewing, it automatically adds the forum address before the image http, breaking it. So it looks like

Code: Select all

[img]http://bdcraft.net/community/Http://whatever I typed[img]
That looks like it for now. I'll post more problems as I have them.

Edit - Hmm I just saw the "Box of Ideas" Sub Forum, guess I shoulda posted there.

So, basically what you're saying is it's just Google Chrome because it works fine in Firefox.

I do find that odd, because I'm sure Sphax uses Chrome and he tested all the features himself...

No, I have all these problems in both IE and Chrome. It's only the freezing I have with chrome, sorry if that wasn't clear.
I'll grab firefox and see if it has those problems. I suppose if all 3 don't work right it could be a problem with my computer. But strange that this is the ONLY site that is giving me problems. (and only in the full editor, the quick reply is fine)

edit - in editing this post, i noticed that everything works much better (unless i change to HTML then back, it locks up) The OP doesn't even let me edit. Here is a screencap.

Ah, it's the WYSIWYG editor. Turn it off here: http://bdcraft.net/community/ucp.php?i=prefs&mode=post

Ah you replied before i could edit above.
I was looking for a way to turn off the WYSIWYG but I wasn't able to find it in the preferences, thanks. It seems to have fixed the problems for now. Guess i'll have to deal with the loss of some functionality.

Yea, that editor was abandoned a long time ago and Sphax must have overlooked that fact. It's littered with bugs (in everything but Firefox).... soooo... I've disabled it (hopefully) and let Sphax know.

Thanks for the report :)

Be sure to flush your cache and reload the full editor. I've already fixed the freeze issue with the WYSIWYG editor ;)

I see that the smilies are currently bugged in wysiwyg editor... I'll fix this issue asap, don't worry. In the mean time, write smilies yourselves or switch to bbcode to add them by clicking on their icon (or disable wysiwyg editor in your user settings).

Great it's all working now. Thanks!

The only thing not working is the gallery, but I just mentioned that because it wasn't working. I really don't need to use it. Just thought it might be a better way to display preview images for patches.

Ok found another problem, though this one is kinda minor compared to the craziness from before.

If you make a link, then try to wrap a button or download around the link (using the button on the editor), it makes the button or download code red and the button or download doesn't show up. It only works if you put the button or download down first, then insert the link inside it.

I dunno if you can see my code but i'll do it here.

Code: Select all

[buttons]http://www.google.com[/buttons]
[/url]

Code: Select all

[url=http://www.google.com/][code][buttons]http://www.google.com[/buttons]
[/url][/code]


Code: Select all

[buttons]http://www.google.com[/buttons]

Code: Select all

[buttons][url=http://www.google.com/]http://www.google.com[/url][/buttons]

the top one is a direct copy using the "wrap" method where i highlight the link and click on the button to make it put the button, download, or code box around it. As you can see, the top one is an actual link instead of being just "code".

Ah i just looked at the HTML and added that to each one, I can see what is going on now, when the boxes are clicked while having a link highlighted, it puts the code inside the link instead of around it. Thus, what you see above.
