Hi Greg, that's happened to me on the odd occasion when I copy and paste text, after I've submitted the post, I usually click on modify and then you can delete the unwanted code markers.

There has been a Lot of updates to browsers, HTML code, internet stuff in general ... but unfortunately not to the Forum (SMF) software.....   >:-o

Post the text Greg and I'll have a look.   :-)



OK thanks Martin.  Posted now in my Deans Motor Gun Boat thread in the Warships section.  I guess I could follow Joe's advice and edit it, but I'll leave it for you to see if you can fix.
Thanks again,
Greg

 Good point Barrie!  There are two ways of posting text here on Mayhem, Plain Text or  WYSIWYG ( What You See Is What You Get...... mostly! )

 You can toggle it whilst posting -

I added a Thumbs up icon at the end of a sentence recently and the text afterwards went to tiny text, just deleted the icon, wrote the next lines and added the icon later.

It is a recognized glitch in the software. I don't think anyone has ever said it isn't the forum/site software's fault.
What has been said is that a fix for the bug has not been found.

Using a different browser can sometimes help.

I use Firefox
Are you using the 'remove formatting button (top row next to the A above the emojis)?

Free software is just that, no real investment in it so you have to manage with what is there.

Having said that, I am not experiencing any problems whatsover in formatting posts from my PC. I suspect things might be different from phones and tablets though.

If I spot the evil of the font size fairy in the final resul in time I just click edit and delete the offending formatting codes.  Sometimes I actually want a bit of formatting.  I did my learning about word processing on a PCW using LocoScript where you had to put your own formatting code in and hope that a) it wouldn't show up on paper and b) it would look like you thought it would.

I think that the new for sale elsewhere is a great idea but why have you excluded items removed from Mayhem.

I would have thought that if someone had given members the first chance to buy something but then removed it from Mayhem so that they could advertise it elsewhere then it could go in the Mayhem for sale elsewhere listing.

It is quite possible that I have read it wrongly & this is not what you meant.

Hi TF, Yes you can do that, but it can't be for sale on Mayhem AND Elsewhere concurrently.

I still read it as that you cannot have something on "my sale elsewhere" if it has previously been on Mayhem even if it isn't on Mayhem now.

Apologies for being awkward but we must read it differently. To me the bit in brackets is just confusing and unnecessary. 

My suggestion would be "Must not be listed for sale in both "Mayhem for Sale" and  "My sale elsewhere" at the same time.

PS Why when I reply to you, but not when I reply to anyone else, does my reply come within the quotes box?

No, it's important we get this right TF, how about:

1. Must not be listed for sale in both "Mayhem for Sale"  and  "My Sale Elsewhere", topics at the same time.
   ( Ask Mods to remove any previous sales if required  )
