[Bug ?] Saving a draft mess up the formatting

Post by Tairon96 » Thu Dec 06, 2018 4:04 am

If you the a formatted post as a draft, the BBcode is replaced by html code.

[ b ] Text [ / b ]

is replaced by

< b > Text < / >

Editing the draft is painful with the mix of BBcode and html. It gets really terrible in same cases, because some translated BBcode -> Html is not interpretated by the forum to show the formatting. Instead the HTML code stays in the post.

It would be nice, if the BBcode is saved in the draft without the translation.

Hmmm ? Don't know. Every time I save a draft, it is messed up. Perhaps it is the mobile version of the forum ?

Possible. Never used my mobile to edit a post on a forum :).

Interesting, for me (desktop/chrome) it shows as html markup in the draft editor, but reverts the bbcode when loaded into the reply box.

Ok, I can reproduce it when editing the draft through control panel.

Looks like it requires a phpBB upgrade to fix. https://tracker.phpbb.com/browse/PHPBB3-15329
