Matt Matt... Always trying to figure it out on your own before looking at the evidence folks give you. :wink: It makes your job harder.

I'm not sure what is causing the root of the problem because I haven't experimented with it at all. But Josh's guess about the non-closing of the <font> is a good one. As is the fact that none of the hrefs have double quotes around the URL.

Matt/Josh, thanks for your guidance. I got rid of the font tags for each cell and replaced them with the <table color> tag. However, when I added double quotes to the URLs within the table, for some reason it adds "http://www.summitpost.org" to all of the links when you click on them. For example, if you click on REI.com, it takes you to "www.summitpost.org/www.rei.com", which obviously doesn't exist... The quotes work fine for the links at the bottom of the page but not the URLs that are contained in a table.

For now, I omited the quotes for the URLs in the table. That's the only way it seems to work.

Update:

I deleted everything and am starting over from cut and paste. Is there any way to use the old editor without having it add all this extra code stuff while adding photos? Trying to do something simple like add captions ruins the whole reports. If one typo is present it arranges all the photos/text and you can't go back and fix it like you used to.

I'm guessing you mean the "new editor" where you say "old editor" in this sentence?


No.

When I go into old editor, I am getting this:

<div align="center" class="image" style="width: 506px;"><a href="/thamserku/833072"><img alt="Thamserku" height="375" width="500" src="/images/medium/833072.JPG"></a>
<span class="caption">Thamserku finally breaks through the clouds.</span></div>

Instead of this:

[img:833073:aligncenter:medium:Sunset on Ama Dablam from Tengboche.]

I'm guessing that once you use the new editor once, it reverts everything to the former, even when using the old editor.

I need a little more information Scott and, preferably, an example of the problem. I've not had any problems adding captions.


I should have screen shot it, but I'll explain the best I can. I was going to leave it the way it was to get some help fixing, but I just ended up reposting everything.

Something I did in the new editor (and I don't know what) caused the entire rest of the trip report to show up as a photo caption. I went in to try and edit this and when I couldn't figure it out, it deleted the photo. In turn, rather than keeping all the photos in their proper sections, it shifted all of them into the next section up.

In the past, the old editor, the same thing would happen if there was an invalid photo id (typo) in one of the image tags, i.e., [img:833073:aligncenter:medium:]. Once the image tag was fixed in the old system, all photos would then display in their proper locations (this is what I meant by I couldn't go back and fix it like I used to be able to do). This time, using the new editor, the shift took place (from whatever I did) and even when I reverted back to the old editor, it physically moved all the photos into the wrong section.

I tried to cut and paste them into the proper sections (old editor), but something was causing most of the report to show up as a photo caption. I couldn't see anything different in the long code that caused this, so I dumped all the photos and copy/pasted much of the text and started over.

Does that explain anything? Sorry I didn't screen shot it. Any idea what happened (whatever initially happened, it did so when I was trying to add a photo caption)?

Thanks Matt.

Not sure if this is possible, but an undo button would really come in handy. I haven't needed one yet, but I'm sure I'll stumble across cases where it would be nice. I'm sure many folks would use it. The JCK editor I suggested in the past has this feature. :wink:

As for Scott and everyone else... all right, I'll get working on the better styling for transitioning from the new editor to the old. What will this do? Make it easier to find the old editor button and make it look nice. Let me think on this.

Undo buttons are usually pretty complicated based on my understanding. Requires a whole new process to track every single change as it is made, and remember all of them.

Ctrl+Z works fine as UNDO, and Ctrl+Y as a REDO. I don't know how big the redo buffer of the editor is, but you can undo (and redo) several actions. And since the editor has the functionality, adding buttons for it shouldn't be all that difficult. Whether we want them or not, that's a whole different question. Personally, I don't find them necessary. But then again, I've stored all these frequently used shortcuts in the back of my head somewhere...

It shouldn't happen in any modern browser. Can you show me an example?


Montana Matt, check out my route page that I'm trying to reformat using the new editor: http://www.summitpost.org/view_object.php?object_id=463934&confirm_post=7. Scroll down about half way and look at the vertical photo on the right titled "Cracker Peak (L) & Mount Siyeh (R)". I believe the photo inserted at a default width=500px; when I changed it to 300px, the photo showed up very, very blurry on the page. Thanks for looking into this.
