As designed Edit History Without Any Change


Well-known member
This is certainly one of those "as designed" bugs but I would report here instead of a minor feature request. If a post is opened for editing and without making any changes, the edit form is submitted, it creates a new version in a way that the two consecutive versions have no difference. Diff viewer shows a blank line added and removed.

Just reproduced it. I usually use my Linux machine but right now I have access to a Windows 7 machine with Google Chrome 28 in it.

There's actually a space potentially being removed (or added) on that line, so there is a change.
I will verify the existence of a white space. But I did not do anything for that to happen. I will have to investigate why would a space appear/disappear without me doing anything...

There's are browser differences that can cause it to be created internal to XF. Mostly just blame IE (one of the edits being done with it.)

I miss auto-merge functionality here. You have to manually edit all the spaces if they are different from default ones.
