Title: New posting form
Post by S J Birkill on Today at 00:33
I'm trying out a revised text entry form for posts. This fixes the feature noted by Secret Drinker and Gerry Smith, whereby failure to enter a subject line gives an error message, and hitting <BACK> doesn't (in MSIE) recover the message. In this event it now pops up a reminder, and you don't lose anything. Also, as an additional security measure, it can be set to copy text as typed to the Windows clipboard.

However the clipboard feature only works in Internet Explorer, as do the 'Live Preview' and 'YaBBC Help' buttons. There are also problems with some of the formatting buttons -- font colour, background colour, face and size don't seem to be delivering their tags, and the colour palettes look odd in Opera. If I can't get these working to my satisfaction I may have to revert to the original form, but I'll let this one stand for now.

Pheww.. thanks for that Steve.  I hadn't made any note of my original text and so there was much wailing and nashing of teeth!  Glad it's fixed (vee haf ways off making u fill in the subject line, mein freund!!)
