How to get my CRLFs to carry through into posts and replys

    Hi,

    When I submit a post or reply, it seems to be hit-or-miss on whether the CRLFs that I use in my composition, actually get into the formatted presentation on the forum.

    I am trying to make the posts as easy to read as possible, but many times, all of my CRLFs are removed and all the text is packed together, without even a blank space between sentences.

    What is the trick here to always get my CLRFs "remembered" ?

    Many thanks.

    Did you use the same browser for the original post in this thread? It looks normal there to me.

    Yes, well I will keep track of exactly what I m doing and see if I can isolate it ....Yes, posting a "new thread seems different" (better formatting success) from "replys".Well you know, you can check out just about any forum or sub forum here and see that a significant number of the replys are all packed together. It is all in one paraggraph and the sentences don't have a blank space between them.So I think it is a somewhat widespread phenomenon.Ocassionally when I make a reply and see that it is all packed together, I will edit the reply and try again to fox it, and it sems that sometimes that will work.Anyway it's a bit of a mystery.Thanks for listening and looking into it.All the best.

    Now, the above reply by me was formatted with many CRLFs and none of them are there, and there are no blank spaces between the sentences.

    Maybe it's just IE?

    Hi Shawn,

    Thanks for dialoging with me on this topic. I think I will stop obsessing on it - LOL.

    BTW, this time I am using FireFox.

    I did spend a little time on vbulletin.com with this topic and there are other webmasters who run vbulletin who are experiencing this "disappearing crlfs" and various other disappearing items.

    One of the senior admins at vbulletin kind-of wrote it off as a "quirky feature".

    On one of my sites, all of my content is placed with simple text files. My php code then reads that when a page is requested and formats it to html. I did have some weird/unreliable behavior with certain php syntax's, so I canned those and used other syntax's and it works correctly 100% of the time now. I love php even with it's little weirdnesses.

    Thanks for a great site.
    Have a good one.

    Wow, I wonder if you are correct about IE!
