View/Edit drafts contain underlying HTML coding

Post by P_I »

In the posting window there is an option to "Save draft". The user can then continue to work on the post via UCP->Manage drafts.
If the user selects "Load draft", the post looks normal, but if the user selects "View/Edit", the post text contains HTML characters. This appears to be a change from the phpBB 3.1.x experience, so is perhaps related to the new BBCode engine?

For example, when the following is entered into the posting window

Code: Select all

This is a test.

This is [b]bold [/b]text.
and then "Save draft" is used. Now go to UCP->Manage drafts

Selecting "Load draft", the same text is restored as expected.

Selecting "View/Edit", and the posting window shows

Code: Select all

<r>This is a test.<br/>
<br/>
This is <B><s>[b]</s>bold <e>[/b]</e></B>text.</r>
Opened [PHPBB3-15329] View/Edit drafts contain underlying HTML coding to track the issue.

Cannot reproduce. What extensions do you have installed?

Interesting. I can also reproduce it on this board, but not on a local test board (3.2.0). Can you reproduce it on your own board?

Brf, is that SS from this board or your own?

Is this perhaps unique to 3.2.1? I have no 3.2.1 board at the moment.

Just tested it on a Quick Install board running 3.2.0 and cannot reproduce, so it does appear to be specific to 3.2.1.
