post edit removes newlines


I rarely get things right the first time i post something, either a new thread, or a reply. So, i end up editing the post one or more times. Bringing the post back into edit mode throws away all blank lines and newlines that i entered in originally, and makes the entire post one paragraph. For clarity, i want newlines and blank lines, so i end up putting them back in manually every time i edit the post. Any way to avoid this slight annoyance?

I don't recall this ever happening to me.

What browser are you using?

I am using firefox 1.5 on OSX panther.



On editing, I'm not seeing this happen.

I'm using Konqueror, all Mepis defaults. This doesn't seem to be a browser problem. Also, i don't think this was occurring before the recent LQ upgrade. Did some looking around...is this thread related?: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...d.php?t=403181
btw, the original post had a newline before the word 'Also' above. This is what i'm referring to.

It seems to be a negative side effect of upgrading to VBulletin 3.5.

Now i had a very difficult time editing post #3. Two successive edit attempts froze the window; it wouldn't respond. May be related? And you can see that original newlines are now gone.

What OS and browser are you using? This problem doesn't appear to be server-side, because titanium and I were both able to edit our posts without any problems. Have you tried the usual browser fixes such as clearing cache/cookies, trying multiple browsers, etc?

It's a Konq bug and if I remember correctly there is already a report in the LQ bug tracker. We're looking into a proper workaround.

(Using the normal edit as opposed to the quick edit should work for now)

Ha! knew it had to be a browser issue.

glad to see you're on top of it, jeremy.

OK, here goes my test post...
<--newline here

^blank line above
Another newline, and now i'll post and then edit it...

OK, now i'm adding to the original post...
here is what jeremy told me to do:
Quote:
While we fix this, please right click on the edit link and open in a new window in order to reach the edit page.
which is what i'm doing, and it looks OK. Thanks, Jeremy, and the rest of you, too.

I was suffering from this too, but it seems to have been cleared up in the last week or so.
Yes I am using konq.

Did this get fixed permanently then?

Not from our end - was there a konq update?

No, I have been using 3.5.0 the entire time. 3.5.1 is out now, but I have not yet upgraded.
As I say, I had the exact same symptoms as dogpatch mentioned, but it started working as it should about a week ago?!?
