Mark,

           I keep my "signature stash" in plain text and format it once pasted.

           I could definitely have some extra weird HTML somewhere in there because I'm using the WYSIWYG editor in Groups.io to format it.  I have done "paste overs" as well.

           What I can't figure out is why the editor screen renders these things one way while the actual forum software is rendering them another.  I will be happy to do whatever you'd like me to do in order to figure that out (if that's of any interest).


moderated Re: Something's up with Signatures

 

Hi Brian,

Apologies for the delay in getting back to you. I checked one of your sigs, and there's a bunch of extra HTML in it. Did you cut and paste the sig from somewhere else? You can see the extra HTML by switching to the Code View in the editor (button directly to the left of the Question Mark button).

Interesting.  It looks like the "presto-change-o" trick is occurring on this signature, too, but it doesn't show up until after I leave the thread and return to it again.

I thought several pictures would be worth a thousand words, so:

There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year-old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged.  One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.   ~  John Rogers

BTW I just tested the "removed" notification, and Mark thought ahead on that one. There's no "cheers" added.

Just FYI this thread got duplicated because when I tried to post, twice, I got a 504 message.  When I went back to the messages list it was there, twice, and I deleted one of them.   I have never gotten a 504 before and certainly wouldn't have expected the message to have posted when I got one.

When you posted the first time, one of the search nodes went down, causing a delay in posting, which caused the web server to time out and give you a 504.

One of my main objectives for December is to reduce our dependence on and perhaps eliminate the existing search system (elasticsearch), because it's been so unreliable.

Thanks,
