Copy/paste not working on iPad in that code block, but reply with quote works OK if you edit/remove the code and noparse tags.

I am not code-y enough to understand what I'm talking about, but I wonder if it is possible within the VB platform to have what would effectively be a shared database. I would very much like us to be able to enter data into a sortable table, instead of having a massive discussion thread to page through.

On my iPad, I was just able to copy the block of text from the OP, paste into a new post, click Go Advanced in order to preview, and it worked perfectly.

I'll be installing a post/PM template system that will allow there to be shared templates as well as individual (private/not shared) templates.

Soon?

It's been installed for days. I thought LittleLebowski was going to create the template (since I know nothing about reloading), but I can do it later today.

I am, I just need to come back to work in order to get some time to do it :D

That page is probably cached for you. Either clear the cache or reload the page while holding down the shift key.


I'm on an iPhone dear sir. I will have to download a shift key from the App Store.

It worked, but I was too dumb to figure it out :( went rogue and do my own. I'm so sorry

"Suggested," don't worry about it. I am more curious as to if there's a problem with the setup.

I could see a couple spots where I thought my text should go but after trying one and hitting preview thread it was never the right spot. It was all in the same bold as well so it was hard to tell what was my text or the template, I had plans to change my response to red but never got that far.

Because I'm dumb, like I previously mentioned lol.

Can we take the 60 minute edit window off the reloading journals?

That is the one thing that drives me crazy about PF. I usually write badly the first time (lots of typos, sometimes confusion from experimental wordings) and then edit to make my posts pretty later.

Often more than 60 minutes later....
