Topic: Technical Support / Angle bracket ruins comments (obvioulsy parsed as html)

Ouch, the forum converted the arrows and the text within the asterisks. Duuuh, stop all that convertionism T_T . But I think you still get the point of the example text, do you?

Topic: Technical Support / Angle bracket ruins comments (obvioulsy parsed as html)

Hi,

this is a problem I ran into on a different forum before but I didn’t expect it to happen elsewhere. So It looks like angle brackets (more precise the opening bracket) is recognized as html code in game comments although HTML is actually not possible there. Everything following an opening angle braket ist not shown. Funny was though, that an apostrophe ended the “code section”. I’ll give an example equivalent to what I wrote/encountered a few minutes ago:

" → I used arrows like these to highlight a word. insert arrow to the left This text between the opening angle bracket and the now following apostrophe doesn’t show."

So If I posted this as a comment, the following would be shown after hitting the send button:

" → " used arrows like these to highlight a word.t show."

Of course one could avoid brackets like these, but before that one has to know that this happens.

A moderator encouraged me to tell about this.

Cheers o/
