The text editor, used across many parts of Think Atheist, has just been revamped with some fixes and improvements. 

No More Unwanted Line Breaks in Pages

As many members have pointed out, the text editor on the Pages feature can add unwanted line breaks when switching between HTML and Visual mode. The issue: <br /> tags were added at the end of each line of text after switching back to HTML view. 

This has now been fixed, and should no longer occur.

 

Autorecover

We've added a new "Autorecover" feature to the text editor to help anyone who accidentally loses what they were working on in the text editor. After working on a blog post, discussion or broadcast message that is at least 50 characters long, you'll notice an "Autorecover" link appear at the bottom of the editor:

If you refresh the page (or your browser crashes for some reason and you return to the page), you'll see the Autorecover link appear. Click it, and the last-saved version of the post will appear! This Autorecover link will be available for up to 20 minutes (new versions are saved every 60 seconds).

 

New options that fix Blockquoting and wrap text in <p> tags

If you use the blockquote function a lot, you may have noticed that there can be a problem with the blockquote tool in the text editor: You can't un-blockquote text after you have turned blockquoting on. 

That problem was caused by turning off a rule in the text editor that wraps your text in <p> tags, even when using HTML mode. To fix the blockquoting issue, we're testing out a new option for members to force all text to be wrapped in <p> tags, even when using the HTML view — which today uses <br /> tags each time you hit return.

 

That is it for now.

 

Thanks for your support!

Hooray for block quoting :)
