Creating Mod Topics

Question

Recommended Posts

  • 0

I'd remove the "(s)" from PasteAuthor(s)...

 

Discussion topic:
PasteModNameAndURL by PasteAuthors
(update)Wiki Link


 

In this way, I can just double-click PasteAuthors in order to select it so I can paste the real author(s).

Also note that the bold text gets stripped when I follow the instructions.

Don't know why it doesn't for me then. Strange.

Just copy without going into edit mode. Looks like you are also getting the background, which isn't good.

Test with quote from Greg's:

It looks as if bold text pasted just fine.

Yep, that's nice.

Test copy from edit mode:

Hmmm, what browser are you guys using? I am using Waterfox (FF variant) without issue.

I'm using Chrome. I didn't enter Source edit mode at all. Just copied and pasted.

I meant just the plain edit mode. No diff either way under FF. I'm guessing this is Chrome 'creep'. That browser always did annoy me but for the dev tools. FF has gotten a lot better in that regard. I think it's safe to assume most people use Chrome though (wagon riders!), so I will add the styling to the HTML and you can retest.

EDIT: well, the font-weight style is already in there, duh. Somehow, you Chrome is stripping it:

So Chrome is hacking the crap out of the HTML via WYSIWYG copy. Maybe it's some custom styling or a plugin you have forgotten about? Otherwise, it's some Chrome setting. Google is acting more and more like MS if that's the case.

I think Tech uses Chrome too, but he didn't have this issue when he demonstrated this idea on the other topic:

EDIT: Tech mediated with a text editor, so this is NOT a rich-text copy/paste

Nope, Chrome is stripping it on paste for some reason. I pasted it into a text editor just fine so it has something to do with the pasting of rich text on Chrome.

EDIT:
Edge doesn't work either, so it's probably a Chromium thing.

I switched to Chrome a while back when for reasons I can't remember now. However, the fact that's it's the most used browser, we should be designing for it first. The fact that you're not using for design work is the oddball out so time to hope on that wagon! :tongue: That's one reason I've kept it and the reason I brought up the fuzz fonts on the wiki. If I'm seeing it, the majority of others are too :whistling: :

Yes, Chrome hoses everything. Just look at the quote above. It strips bold and ADDs background. Horrible.

So if you first paste as plain text in text editor and then re-copy/paste from that, all is good?

If you could research and find the Chrome setting that is responsible, that would be wonderful. Then we can add this tweak to the instructions.

I do test with Chrome as secondary, but I do all primary development under FF ... and this is why. Chrome is definitely inserting itself where it isn't wanted based on invalid assumptions (just like MS browsers).

I've seen some people posting of the same issue here and there with other editors, but no solutions. I've looked around on the back-end and haven't found anything related. Honestly, my instinct tells me this is something more internal and would need to be reported as a bug, but I doubt they see it as a bug (the bold not copying maybe, but not the background copying). It's a deep copy they're doing. Found this from 2010, so it's been copying the background for 10+ years:

Terrible 'standard' they are trying to set. Invalid assumption to bring some styling but not all. Copying text should copy all text and layout styling but not anything else. Just copy, not 'deep' copy.

I just found something. Go into incognito mode in Chrome, and try copy/paste that way to see if it grabs the background.

      I'm logged into the forum with my new account, and the login won't work for the wiki.

      I'd like to add some comments to suggest corrections and additions to the Skyrim ini and general ini sections. 

      One correction is on the "u" prefix:  This means unsigned integer.

      When creating a new account, forum.step-project.com is sending the following validation link:
      https://forum.step-project.com/index.php?app=core&module=global§ion=register&do=05
       
      where it should be:
      https://forum.step-project.com/index.php?app=core&module=global&section=register&do=05
       
      Similarly, the auto validation link is broken:
      https://forum.step-project.com/index.php?app=core&module=global§ion=register&do=auto_validate&uid=xxxx&aid=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
       
      but it should be:
      https://forum.step-project.com/index.php?app=core&module=global&section=register&do=auto_validate&uid=xxxx&aid=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
       
      Finally, the https interface is open with a bad certificate and an admin management access. Even if you don't care about secure access, you should at least close down that interface since it's a separate running instance. Alternatively if you're using it for admin operations you should assign a non-default port so it won't get accessed by mistake.

      Is anyone else getting this(links to copy) because its pretty annoying?
       
      EDIT: *sigh* relaunching chrome fixed it.
