Switching from Rich Text to HTML

Several times when I have started typing in Rich Text I have switched to HTML to add something like blockquote tags, but when I try to switch back to Rich Text I lose everything. Or, sometimes when I switch back to Rich Text, it's got all the HTML code (which appears if I post as-is).

 

Another reason to use established forum software like phpBB... Man Wink

Thanks for flagging, @mdwpsyd. We're aware of the issue and are working on it. Robot Happy

Yes, the HTML tab is very buggy and that is very irritating. A work-around that I use is to edit using a separate HTML editor then copy from there and paste to here but that does not work for Microsoft Edge (unless maybe if we use a technical trick that is too complicated to explain here).

 

Yes, this HTML editor is among the most primitive of choices.

@mdwpsyd & @SamHobbs,

Please let me know if you're still seeing these issues! We recently put in a fix. Thanks!
