Blog entries saved as drafts empty Issue Tools

Blog entries saved as drafts empty
Blog drafts appear empty save the title of the entry when trying to edit them.


I'm having a problem with my blogs. I recently tried to edit a saved draft that I was writing and when I went to edit the draft, all that appeared was the title of the entry, no other text at all.

I was wondering if it might have something to do with the new updates that were recently added to the site.

Thank you.

No recent updates have been done to the blog or forum, only the arcade was updated. We'll look into this issue, thanks for letting us know.

No problem.

Also, when I copy and paste from my MS Word.doc and I preview the the post, the formatting is all jumbled. E.g. I double spaced each line, it will show each line all bunched up.

I'm not sure if this is a problem on my part, or just a forum failure. I used to be able to just copy and paste my text into the body of the blog post and it would be formatted the same as in my Word.doc.

I'm unable to replicate the problem here. I created a draft blog entry and was able to return to it later and edit it after logging out and logging back in. The original content was not lost.

We did upgrade PHP on the server but that shouldn't cause the behaviour you are describing.

I've had issues with Firefox mangling the formatting when pasting from other programs or html pages into the WYSIWYG editor. I have not tested it with other browsers. I've found that the most reliable formatting method is to use the standard editor and use BB Code for formatting, instead of the WYSIWYG editor. You can change your editor by going to User Control Panel -> Edit Options -> Miscellaneous Options -> Message Editor Interface.

I switched and now my text is there. Thank you for the help!

We have other reports of problems with the WYSIWYG editor when editing forum posts too. We confirm there is a bug and we will look into it further and report back.

For now, anyone having problems can change their editor by going to User Control Panel -> Edit Options -> Miscellaneous Options -> Message Editor Interface.

This also occurs when editing an existing blog post. Changing the editor type from WYSIWYG to basic worked.
