Edit tag issues

When using the 'edit' tag to highlight edits, it doesn't nest properly. As in
Code
Select All
[edit] [edit]test[/edit] test[/edit] 


comes out as:
Edited:
Edited:
test
test


while Quote  
Code
Select All
 [quote] [quote]test [/quote]test [/quote] 


does:
Quote:
Quote:
test
test


This is true at least as far back as 2.4

Update: Thankfully, Carsten came up with a fix (here in his forum).

This has been confirmed in our 2.4 forum. But is this really a bug?

Interestingly enough, the examples Dandello show nest perfectly fine while using Live Preview even though they don't nest properly when Preview is used. So maybe this really is a bug after all.

In any case, when I want to highlight an edit, I type it up as follows:
Code
Select All
 [quote] [edit] test [/edit] test  [/quote] 


The result is as follows:
Quote:
Edited:
test
test

So from my perspective, I never saw this as a bug since an edit can be highlighted by quoting it.

*************************************

On a related note, I seem to remember a few other "bugs" that haven't nested the way I've wanted. However, I don't believe this has ever been an issue for me since there are others ways to tweak an edit or a quote.

Warning: If any of you are thinking of testing Preview here in this particular forum, you may end up getting banned (use Live Preview instead). That's either a bug, or an unfortunate decision on the part of the admin to fend off spam-bots that are obviously able to post in this forum anyway.

The worst part of an unintentional ban here in this forum is that the forum admin is absentee because of his evidently heavy day job work schedule. I feel his pain. As such, as it was with me, it will undoubtedly take an inappropriately long time to reactivate your account.

If this ever happens to anyone, and you still want to post comments, or read this forum if you're unable to do so, the temporary way to do this is to use a proxy server.

Well on the dev board we decided it was probably bug since the behavior wasn't consistent with things like Quote. And I also figure if Carsten didn't point out that it was a feature rather than a bug, it was probably a bug.

Because you're quite exceptional when it comes to matters regarding YaBB, I've learned to simply trust your judgment. That's a no brainer for me. You were, after all, correct about the bug you reported.

I just like to question stuff every once in a while to better understand what I don't know. Wink
