Invisible Post

Post by JKSM »

I just made a post in this thread. However, when I when to view the thread, the words in my post become invisible ink (see 1st screenshot). However, when I went to profile to look at my post, the words were there (see 2nd screenshot). Am I missing something or am I the only one seeing invisible ink? :huh:

Hiya,

The issue was that your urls were not formatted correctly ... they were like this

Code: Select all

[url]http://somewhere.com]Some link[/url]
Whereas that first ] should be an = like so

Code: Select all

[url=http://somewhere.com]Some link[/url]
I fixed the post and it shows up now ... I think it confused phpbb :D

Couldn't resist saying this:
There's someone who should also thank emmzee :thumbsup: but he probably won't know it. :D
... and it'll probably take a long post to explain the whole story to him. :P

The person is the that "happy guest poster". Thanks to your fixing the post in time for him to read that he wouldn't become a "sad guest poster" as he has now finally found his game. ;)

I used to post a bunch of silly stuff with size=0 for a while after realizing it was doable. Seems nobody noticed :laugh:
