Posted · Bug - old posts imported include garbage HTML tags - UM forum

The migration of old posts did not work, looks like some HTML tag were not interpreted correctly.

here's an example of an old post which looked fine on the old forum, but the migration some how added formatting tags on the lists of print settings:

I'm not sure if I originally pasted the print settings from notepad, or where I pasted those from, but the text looked great on the old forum.

I figured with all the long threads about issues, it might be helpful to post this as a "question" so we can see when it is fixed (by changing to solved), ALSO trying to be very narrow in the scope of issues I will post.

    at least this one post (the one linked above) has been cleaned up by the June 4th fixes.

    Now how to I flag as "answered" and if there was more that one reply how would I select the best answer????

    Yes, you can only flag other answers at "best answer", but admins can flag your own answer. It wasn't an question, I've changed that some minutes ago.

    hmmm .... then I wish I would have screen shot-ed it since it's been showing up as a "question" for me since ever I made it. along with the other "Bug-......" posts I've made here. Do these show as questions yet on you end?(see image below)

    Maybe it only becomes a "question" when someone else posts on it?

    also why not let people answer their own questions ??!? that's a definite design flaw if you ask me.

    also - thanks for the fast and courteous help today, I appreciate that.

    Well I have the next best thing, a database backup ;)

    The thing is, whether the topic is a normal topic/question/idea cannot be changed afterwards, it can only be set at creation.

    Good question, this is so users cannot create questions and earn points by answering their own question. Tho admins can flag your answer.
