[10:13:33] <FatPhil> https://dev.soylentnews.org
[10:23:15] <FatPhil> why isn't <pre> allowed?
[10:37:26] <FatPhil> If the fear is that people will break layout by using log pre's, then *you break long pre's* as revenge, you're making the innocent suffer with the guilty.
[11:14:51] <FatPhil> can layout breakage be fixed in CSS?
[11:15:24] <FatPhil> I know of white-space: ..., but that doesn't prevent looooooooog words from breaking things
[12:01:30] <Bytram> FatPhil: try ECODE
[12:05:36] <Bytram> FatPhil: take a look at: https://dev.soylentnews.org
[12:25:55] * Bytram tried prepending "pre|" to these site vars on dev: "approved_tags" and "approvedtags_visible", but need to bounce the servers for it to take effect.
[12:31:45] <FatPhil> yeah, I tried ecode: https://dev.soylentnews.org
[12:32:15] <FatPhil> I'm guessing Arik will find a reason to complain about using that.
[12:32:59] <Bytram> well... got some more info... give me a minute or two
[12:33:01] <Bytram> =)
[12:33:12] <FatPhil> but what do you think about my spontanious limericks - they're good aren't they?
[12:34:11] <FatPhil> apart fom the spelling, but my kbd's shit, and the repetitions was copypasta
[12:34:13] <Bytram> https://dev.soylentnews.org
[12:34:20] <Bytram> not bad at all
[12:35:04] <Bytram> had to bounce the server after making the changes, BUT next install/upgrade the changes will be lost.
[12:35:13] <FatPhil> what posting mode was that using?
[12:35:36] <Bytram> HTML Formatted, I believe
[12:39:09] <Bytram> BTW, there's a bunch of custom code in data.pm for handling vagaries of the different tags, and prolly in [many] other places, as well.
[12:41:36] <Bytram> ruh roh... that ROYALLY messed up editing journal 'stories'
[12:41:58] <FatPhil> I just did a POT response, and it shows there are bugs...
[12:42:00] <Bytram> >>>
[12:42:01] <Bytram> Allowed HTML
[12:42:01] <Bytram> <​|p​|r​|e​||​|b​||​|i​||​|p​||​|b​|r​||​|a​||​|o​|l​||​|u​|l​||​|l​|i​||​|d​|l​||​|d​|t​||​|d​|d​||​|e​|m​||​|s​|t​|r​|o​|n​|g​||​|t​|t​||​|b​|l​|o​|c​|k​|q​|u​|o​|t​|e​||​|d​|i​|v​||​|e​|c​|o​|d​|e​||​|q​|u​|o​|t​|e​||​|s​|u​|p​||​|s​|u​|b​||​|a​|b​|b​|r​||​|s​|a​|r

[12:42:20] <Bytram> what is "POT" Proof of ??
[12:42:26] <FatPhil> Plain Old Text
[12:42:44] <Bytram> ahh
[12:42:49] <Bytram> reverting change
[12:43:06] <FatPhil> It kinda works, but then pulls some whitespace out of thin air for god knows what reason.
[12:45:48] <Bytram> reverted
[12:46:45] <FatPhil> it's mostly a good change, it's just that something else somewhere else now needs fixing!
[12:47:30] <Bytram> thanks. But rather than stumbling around and poking at things like the sorcerer's apprentice, is best to have a plan.
[12:47:51] <Bytram> I'd been considering that change for a long while, so that's how I knew there were applicable site vars, but
[12:48:05] <Bytram> I also saw the dependent/special code so new it ws iffy
[12:48:27] <Bytram> so, did some research and verified it was not as easy as it looked. =)
[12:49:01] <Bytram> in short: intended consequences seemed to be fine, but the unintended consequences were not so good.
[12:58:55] <Bytram> FatPhil: Thanks again for posting stories last night! I apologize for forgetting what timezone you were in... and yet you didn't complain nor even mention it!

[13:00:25] <Bytram> break time
[13:00:28] <Bytram> laters
[13:31:35] <chromas> I had the whitespace-out-of-nowhere issue with bot subs using plaintext.
[14:57:42] * FatPhil wakes up from a mid-afternoon crash
[14:57:51] <FatPhil> woh, which way's up?
[17:07:05] <FatPhil> chromas - can you describe a simple way to reproduce this?
[19:37:10] <chromas> Select "Plain Old Text", submit story. I didn't look into it much since switching to "HTML Formatted" fixed it.
