thank you very much for getting into. Its great to speak direclty to the developer. I appreciate it. I give my best to explain the problem.
The Person from here: viewtopic.php?f=74&t=2242416
described it very well if you read it carefully. I try it now again a bit more detailed. I am pretty sure you will understand it in that way.
In older versions of phpbb, two <br><br> will be added after blockelements. To explain the different scenarios I made a few screenshots.
. Please see this 3 types of quote possibilies in the editor (textarea) view.
As you can see, under the first quote is one answer with one line break. The user expect in the posting view the same distance.
. Now please have a look at this image where you can see the posting view:
The distance between the the answer and the first quote is too big. Please keep in mind, that the blockquote element has NO margin-bottom.
. The reason why the first distance is so big is, that under the blockquote are two <br><br>. I know, this is normal because if the cursor is direclty behind the closing [/quote] and you press 2 times return for a line break, this 2 line breaks becomes 2 <br><br>
See this image from the chrome developer:
. In newer versions of phpbb this seems to be fixed, because the exact same bbcode quoting, becomes this:
As you can see, there is NO br anymore. All 3 quoting scenarios have the same distance to the quote, because you remove the br after the blockelements.
In that way you can add a margin-bottom to the blockquote and the problem is fixed. What is perfect. So you did a very nice job but how to adapt this to an older version? Maybe there is a quick regex or something like that?
So basicly what I am trying to achieve is, how to get rid of the br´s after the blockquotes.
Thank you very much JoshyPHP.
