so...i made a big post in another topic. upon re-reading it (i had posted, not previewed it) i wanted to tweak a couple of things, so i went into the edit mode. i did my tweaking, then hit save, but only HALF the post appeared!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

luckily, i had copied my text (i've lost too many long posts not to) and was able to paste it and then do my tweaks, but that is a disturbing occurance.

especially disturbing with all those exclamation marks!!

did you see the entire post when you were editing? or did it only disappear after you re-submitted the post?

PeteRRR sounds more like my GP every post. Does it only hurt when you breathe?

Peter, I'm not sure if the whole message was there. i only tweaked a few things in the first half, didn't check the whole thing. the edit window, by the way, is disturbingly small.

Not sure that it matters much, but it looks like maybe posting order gets mixed up if one person is posting while another person is editing an adjacent post. Like I said, not really a big deal, but maybe a clue in sorting out any other unexpected behavior.

I suppose it wouldn't take much to make the edit window bigger... But I think I know what caused the problem and will fix it in the next milestone.

The problems are the underscores. Please wait for the fix. In the meantime, there's utilities on the net that let you zip long URLs into new short ones.

way to go, Pete! (in the distance, the roar of the crowd chanting in unison is heard: We love Pete, we love Pete)

A virtual pint of special on me for you Pete.

I could do with a pint of special myself. Can you add one as an attachment please.

Also, people with hyphenated names will get correct capitalisation the next time you update your profile!

But how do you keep a long url inside the text box, Peter?

Not wishing to take this to the bar where this is still ongoing, I wonder why when I am not logged in to d-word, and my share this publically box is unticked, I google David Herman d-word and come up with my whole profile warts and all?

until a fix for long url's is here, you can go to tinyurl.com and make them little....

I think that was more information than I needed this evening. Bonne nuit.
