They aren't "ignored". This can happen if you copy and paste from an editor such as Word or from another web page with their own formatting. In these cases you can just edit the post and press ENTER where you want the breaks.

Every following word is on it's own line, written in Google Chrome:

 

I

 

do

 

have

 

this

 

issue

 

and

 

it

 

only

 

occurs

 

here.

 

Why

 

would

 

anyone

 

use

 

another

 

text

 

editor?

 

I

 

suppose

 

it

 

is

 

within

 

the

 

realm

 

of

 

possibility.

 

But

 

I'm

 

not

 

understanding

 

the

 

point.

 

Here

 

is

 

a

 

screenshot

 

of

 

my

 

post

for me the problem is on internet explorer, and it is very very random, out of the blue, usually when i am in a great hurry.




Involuntary autocorrect in operation on mobile device. Apologies in advance.

I guess not, but posts typed in Chrome for Facebook, tumblr, blog comments, XYZ site, all IME retain basic formatting like line breaks, which are instead converted to spaces by the Geekzone editor.

Interesting that the text editor is missing in the screenshot you took. Are you using an ad blocker, or any script blocker at all?




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

Missing? Here's a screenshot of what I see at this moment in time: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1442584/Screen%20shot%202015-03-25%20at%209.45.15%20PM.PNG

 

And yes - I always use a script blocker, but it has enabled all detected scripts for this page. Perhaps ScriptSafe is missing one (screenshot of script blocker config for geekzone follows)? https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1442584/Screen%20shot%202015-03-25%20at%209.47.06%20PM.PNG Chrome seems to be rather behind Firefox when it comes to extension development, and I miss NoScript in FF.

If you are going to run software that tampers with the content the developer intended, then you cant really expect sympathy when it totally screws up the operation of the site.

Would you complain to microsoft if windows didnt work after you randomly deleted half the dll files?

TinyMCE is being affected, at the very least. Try turning off your script blockers and have another go.

Ok, it seems there is no way to have Geekzone work with ScriptSafe. It simply doesn't see the javascript used by Geekzone for it's editor. Though why it cannot process plain text properly as a fallback, is beyond me.

Update: a quick google search shows this is a known problem with TinyMCE and script blockers. It fails to handle script blockers correctly and makes a hash of things.

Ok, I've tried disabling the HTML editor in my profile settings.
New line.
Another new line.

Edit: Hooray! I have a working plain text editor.
