Bug Reports General Thread
« on: June 23, 2020, 02:10:55 PM »
The creeping tag issue is back.

When modifying threads, there are extra list tags being randomly added (usually at the end of a given post).

Deleting them does nothing, as they just return, and occasionally multiply.


Please troubleshoot!?

Typically, I've found that to be a problem with other tags in the post not being closed properly. Can you put up the post in a [code] block so we can troubleshoot it?

And with that hint, it is proven that the problem was my ignorance, and not anything with the boards. =P

I combed the posts in question, and lo and behold, extra open tags were found... which was causing the board to auto-add the close tags, perhaps?

In any case, now fixed. =D And thank you!

Yeah. These types of BBCode forums typically try to fix unclosed tags, but they can't always figure out where the closure should go so it often winds up getting placed at the end of the post.

Happy to help.
