Why is it this forum allows users to insert Java, SQL, HTML and Plain - but no Actionscript?

is that a request for an inclusion of filetype to the list?

in the mean time, you could save it in a text file and attach it...

Do NOT attach it unless you want it to end up in the virus-checking queue for an indefinite period.

Just use the PLAIN option until they add other syntax highlighting choices. AS is not the only one missing.

BTW, they are researching the option to add more types:

What are some updates as to what is happening in the new forums?

As an alternative, you can actually get away with using the camera icon. It creates a broken link icon in Safari, but users can still click the link.

But do not use the Attach Files feature until they get the queue running faster.

I believe that the Camera Icon/image upload was fixed to only allow image files (JPG, PNG, GIF).

Right now, the options in the >> list are what Jive offers.

That's reasonable 🙂

I forgot to mention to the OP that the >> Insert does not always get along well with tabs. Or maybe it is only code that has tabs and spaces in the indents. Best to convert all tabs to spaces prior to pasting. I'll try to repro here, but no guarantees.

on pseudoLingo
     put "single tab"
     if (two_tabs) then
          put "two tabs"
     end if
end

on pseudoLingo
      put "single tab and a space"
      if (two_tabs) then
            put "two tabs and two spaces"
      end if
end

on pseudoLingo
  put "spaces"
  if (two_tabs) then
    put "two spaces"
  end if
end

Oh, yea. TinyMCE seems to default to 5 spaces per tab.

Either they fixed the problem I (neglected to) mention, or I simply don't have an editor that does it.

What I have seen is the insertion of the HTML non-breaking space in some people's code - but broken apart with a space. ie: $ nbsp; $nb sp; $nbs p;

The only place I've noticed the ghosted camera is in the test forum.

(I'm not in a Web browser to confirm that right now, though.)

Heh.

Syntax highlighting isn't working anyway.

If it were, you could use the Java syntax highlighting to probably get pretty close to ActionScript.  But yes, Jive sucks, etc etc.

Edit: Oh, okay I guess it is..but it doesn't work in the lame a$$ text box "preview"!!! How worthless.
