XF 1.3 Inserting BB Code Oddities


Well-known member
I'm not exactly sure if this is a bug since it happened on vBulletin as well, but, typically, when you highlight text and insert BB code, it'll look like this:

[B]This is bold text.[/B]
However, if I highlight the text in just the right way -- and I don't know what the "way" is -- it'll appear like so:

[B]This is bold text.
Both work, but I'm just curious.

You've selected the line break in the WYSIWYG editor. Not much you can really do to avoid it.
Thanks, Jeremy!

Yeah, it's not a big deal in the long-term since I use the rich text editor. I only notice it because sometimes I switch to the basic editor while typing a message just to make sure everything's right.
