G'day everyone

A minute ago I quoted a URL with a colon in it, in one of the forums. ProZ.com's forum system assumed that "colon-P" is a smiley, and converted my URL to something really weird.

Compare
Special : Pages
with
Special:Pages

And there are times when we want to post short snippets of code in the forums, but the ProZ.com system interprets all HTML (or things it assumes are HTML).

As I'm writing here, to the left of the edit box it reads:

Topic body:
HTML is: On
BBcode is: On

Well, how about being able to switch HTML and BBcode off?

Use the code Sep 12, 2007

Hi Samuel,
The main issue I see is that the codes you can use are no longer displayed (they used to be part of the old forum FAQ) - the problem you describe should not occur if you enclose the URL with tags
[ url ] www.thisistheurl.com [ /url ]

(Note that I inserted blanks to make this visible.)

I have submitted a Support Request asking staff to bring the list of codes back.

Best regards,
Ralf

OK, all of us should do our homework and read everything written anywhere on the site...but meanwhile, it would be nice if while I am writing my forum post I could hit a handy button and see forum FAQs and/or forum rules in a new window. Ditto when I'm asking/answering a KudoZ question, etc.

And I'm not very high-tech: Is there anything on that page that tectranslate kindly referenced for us that shows how I can, if I choose, write:

P r o Z (spaces inserted) and not have it automatically convert to:

ProZ ?
