In this post, Homebrew bolds my name and forgets to include the backslash in the closing tag. In the thread (and in my preview after I quoted his post), my name comes up un-bolded with both “**” tags clearly visible.
What gives? It never worked this way before, did it?
It’s doing it again! I previewed the above portion of this post without inserting the escape trick into the “**” just to see what would happen, and it failed to bold the rest of the post as I had expected. I know this is at least moderately recent.
Anybody know anything?
See what I mean? That’s new, right? That’s going to save a lot of work for mods, I remember whole sections of posts being accidentally bolded or italicized and people constantly requesting that mods fix it for them as of like, a month ago at the earliest. When did we upgrade to 2.2.8? Do we frequently do sub-version upgrades (is that what they’re called?)?
Not that that’s the kind of thing I think mods should spend their time doing. So this is great because now nobody will even ask.
The vBulletin forums have a complete listing of every single bug fixed and feature added for each and every sub-version, along with hundreds of thousands of posts of people praising, discussing, debating, arguing, bitching, and moaning about them.
