typing in the original forum text entry box, the system breaks lines in very strange places. Hopefully, this posting is displaying the way it originally showed up while typing it in. I'll post a response to answer that question.
Sometimes line breaks occur after just a few words. Sometimes line breaks occur in the middle of a word.
Yes. The forum entry is displayed the way it looked when I typed it in.
I did not hit return after the first word of that message. In this reply, the system broke
the first line after the "it in." I did not hit return after that. The next line was broken a
fter the word "broke." THE THIRD LINE WAS BROKEN IN THE MIDDLE OF THE WORD "AFTER".
This has been discussed extensively in the forum for months. Some browsers
do not exhibit the bonus "Jive Forum" carriag
It seems to help if you hit retrun twice before entering text to eliminate the unwanted carriage return.
Predicated on another post, I think that you are on FireFox. I had the same thing in IE 7, but have not had the phantom line-break issue with Google Chrome.
As mentioned above, it seems that some browsers are immune to it, but others are not.
Many have also found that the mentioned Dbl-Enter/Carriage Return solves the issue on their browsers.
