Inserting raw html into forum post.

Why cant I seem to be able to insert code with the insert raw html? I have tried many times and when I click submit, the html is gone. I always wind up using the "quote" feature to insert code. Am I doing something wrong? It really is annoying.

Also, another annoying "quirk" of this forum is the fact that when I do start a discussion or even when I might answer one, When I type a few characters, the cursor does a hard enter automatically. I can be in the middle of a word and all of a sudden I am on the next line, which forces me to backspace so I can continue typing the word. Just little things like this that makes me wonder whats going on. I would think that little bugs like this should be worked out by the administrators of this site forum.

I belong to quite a few forums, and this is the only one I have issues like this with. But, this is the best resource for Coldfusion, so I wish someone would address these issues. Thanks!

There is an 'insert raw html' option (right next to the smiley) in the reply box. A quick test I just did on a simple piece of HTML worked, so hopefully it will work for whatever HTML you want to insert.

The phantom line break has been around for almost two years now. Adobe is using a rather out-of-date version of Jive Clearspace; Jive doesn't seem terribly interested in fixing problems with it & Adobe can't seem to. Not impressive, but there it is.

Yes thats the one I use. The ">>" button has several options, one of which is insert raw html. When I do this, it never works. I will test it right now:

Here is some html:

<cfform action="builderAction.cfm" method="post" name="builderForm">
  <table>
    <tr>
      <th width="173" bgcolor="#CCCfff" scope="row">File Name:To Be Saved As</th>
      <td width="347"><cfinput type="text" name="fileName" id="fileName" value="#SESSION.fileName#" />
        .html</td>
      <th width="73" bgcolor="#CCCCCC">Page Title:</th>
      <td width="144"><cfinput type="text" name="pageTitle" id="pageTitle" value="#SESSION.pageTitle#" /></td>
      <th width="114" bgcolor="#CCCCCC">Page StyleSheet:</th>
      <td width="191"><cfinput type="text" name="styleSheet" id="styleSheet" value="#SESSION.styleSheet#" /></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <th bgcolor="#CCCCCC">Meta-Description:</th>
      <td><textarea name="metaDescription" id="metaDescription" cols="40" rows="3"><cfoutput>#SESSION.metaDescription#</cfoutput>   
    </textarea></td>
      <th bgcolor="#CCCCCC">Meta-Keywords:</th>
      <td><textarea name="metaKeywords" id="metaKeywords" cols="40" rows="3"><cfoutput>#SESSION.metaKeywords#</cfoutput>   
    </textarea></td>
    </tr>
  </table>

</cfform>

lol ok I dont see any html I copied and pasted in the code window. Do you see it?? Its very annoying, especially when I compose a new thread with several pieces of code I want others to view and after spending all this time composing the thread, then all the code is not there and I have to do it all over again.

Seeems to work for me (it's lost, though, if I edit); I notice that when you use the feature, the cursor goes

outside the HTML box, so perhaps you either missed that, or you are using some HTML that doesn't work. I am only trying simple stuff!

You may be misunderstanding the purpose of inserting raw HTML.

It is not intended to show HTML code, but to insert HTML-formatted text into the post.  Unfortunately most text formatting is removed when posting (because spammers could potentially use it).

See this test post for the difference of inserting raw HTML, and showing HTML code http://forums.adobe.com/thread/758740

Regarding the random insertion of line breaks; this is a feature that has been here from the beginning, and nobody seems to care enough about it to fix it.  It is very annoying, and there have been dozens and dozens of complaints about it, but it seems that this feature is here to stay, together with some other annoyances, e.g. the random insertion of blanks into URL links.

Quote does not show any code nicely, better use Syntax Highlighting (Plain), or (XML) for HTML code.

Quote:

<html>

<head>
<title> favorites / bookmark title goes here </title>
</head>

<body bgcolor="white" text="blue">

<h1> My first page </h1>

This is my first web page and I can say anything I want in here - I do that by putting text or images in the body section - where I'm typing right now

</body>

</html>

Plain:

<html>

<head>
<title> favorites / bookmark title goes here </title>
</head>

<body bgcolor="white" text="blue">

<h1> My first page </h1>

This is my first web page and I can say anything I want in here - I do that by putting text or images in the body section - where I'm typing right now 🙂

</body>

</html>

XML:

<html>

<head>
<title> favorites / bookmark title goes here </title>
</head>

<body bgcolor="white" text="blue">

<h1> My first page </h1>

This is my first web page and I can say anything I want in here - I do that by putting text or images in the body section - where I'm typing right now 🙂

At least those with the power and ability don't care. I think the effort is to run enough people away to able to shut the project down. Maybe if all those rumors about Microsoft purchasing Adobe would come true. At least they would have some decent coders that know what they are doing to run there own forums.

I would recommend this forum software to anyone if they give me $5 Billion Dollars.

lol ok well I wasn't trying to sound like I was bashing this forum. I was merely making an observation and was frustrated by the fact that everytime I type my post here, it does the hard enter bug...AND everytime I post here, 99% of the time it involves posting code which apparently I cant do for some reason.

With that said, I DO come here because frankly its the best CF resource and forum out there that I have found. In fact, any of the adobe products are supported here with good lively forum based help. Not many forums on the internet now that one can go to with CF issues...at least not many that you dont have to wait days even weeks for a reply.
