Other Problems?

If your textile seems to break or not work after editing it. This might be viable solutions:

Links are too long. Textile seems to break when there’s more than 20 hyphens. You can use TinyURL to make a smaller link. (Thanks to BotNet7 for this contribution).


Textile is too long. There’s too many characters on your profile. Try making it shorter.


If your links are not working properly. Add http:// before the url when you’re making a link with Textile, otherwise, it won’t work. (Thanks to MaistlinRajere for this contribution).


Now just try different combinations and make a great profile for your account.
Please, if you have any contribution, they WILL be taken, so leave a comment.

Special thanks to:
khixan – for encouraging me to do this
serendipity2009 – the first one I ever taught (I had the idea to do it since then)

Bolding still doesn’t work for me >:

put asterisks(*) around what you want bolded. also make sure there isn’t any space between the characters

like this

On either end of what you want bolded. Doesn’t work on my profile.

 
Flag Post

lol you got it use the strong :P

 
Flag Post

I know how to do it.
It just doesn’t work whenever I try to do it on my profile.

 
Flag Post

I think you have too much info or something for the bold to work.
I’ll try to mess with it later and see if i can fix it for you.

 
Flag Post

Don’t worry about it, man. It’s never worked before, though people’ve tried to help me.

 
Flag Post

Okay, if i figure something out, i will tell you.
If not, i will let it be.

 
Flag Post

Okay then. I appreciate it, regardless.

@HappyAlcoholic
I’ve been getting some troubles with my profile too, I’m sure it’s because your profile is so long.
Try doing it in an alt account or something like that and you will see that the asterisks work.

 
Flag Post

Happy, just do what I do.
When the sentence is getting too long I just press enter. Problem solved.

 
Flag Post

Okay then, bolding seemed to work on this alt’s profile.
Though, I was sure I’d seen successful bolding on profiles longer than HappyAlcoholic’s.

 
Flag Post

I currently can’t make my profile any longer without it going crazy. It just removes all my links, sometimes erases everything. It happened to me twice. So I’m not experimenting anymore .__.

 
Flag Post

I recently had to remove a couple of sections from my profile. If it gets too long, it compresses itself into a shitty textwall >:

 
Flag Post

It’s to do with your profile having too many ‘-’s. Try shortening links using bit.ly

 
Flag Post

Yah i think for both of you the textile breaks

Textile breaks with more than 20 hyphens (so use tinyurl to make a smaller link )
Textile seems to break on Happy’s profile with more than 14 500 characters.

Look at my profile , Happy, to get an idea when your bold textile breaks.

So this is for profiles? I have red some other users comments in this thread and it seems like that you still have some problems so this is still incomplete thread

@BotNet7
Thank you very much for that contribution. I added it to the tutorial and gave you credit for it.
Is the 14500 characters limit for all Textiles? or is that only on HappyAlcoholic Profile?

@Maik50
Yes, this is for profiles only, and it’s not an exact science yet. That’s what we’re trying to do here.
so if you have any contribution it will be considered and added to the Tutorial.

Very interesting. So there is a character limit for Textile on profiles after all.

 
Flag Post

I knew all of them except headings already.

Thanks anyway!
