 Syntax Highlighter Codebox Issues
#31
Its a minor issue, especially since if you copy it, you get the underscore anyways. I would worry more about other issues instead.

Not sure what they are :blush:
I think some issues can appear when posting a single line of code.
This is info that can be given.

I have looked trough my code on forum more closely,
i can not find 1 error regarding Syntax Highlighter.

Here is another example of not being able to compress the code to X line of height.
Its not their fault though, there is no code tag that allows this since we removed "code" tags.

We can tell each user to add spoiler tags, and or use a different box, or even edit it ourselves, etc. But then new people will come in and do the same thing and will have to repeat the process over and over again. At least with the default code box, it shrunk the code to a readable size. 

Im just saying that i think we should add the default code box, and if users want to add syntax sugar, they can use the syntax code highlight box. Or else we are going to be editing posts alot.

  • Sometimes copying from HTML to codebox can add extra things (such as newlines, or switch a link to an <a> tag within the code box
  • hide underscores from within the code box, if it is at the bottom of the box, or a single line

No select all option --> Double Click on code.

no restriction on length down --> We add spoiler tag in the rare cases when code is really long.
No that i have removed Vertical scrollbar do most understand that scrollbar in browser is only option.

Dos not have always have to use Syntax Highlighter for a single line of code or command.

These rare cases seem to be quite often. More often with new users that expect the syntax code box to work as "normal" code boxes.

Really? If i copy code via mouse, and paste in quick editor, it puts it as plain text (like you would expect), but if i paste it in the advanced editor, it puts each word of the code in between code tags...which in the end results in <span> tags inside the code box if you were to post it like that.

A lot of people copy and paste code from the net, especially new users. Its unusual to copy code from the net and forced to paste in an editor before pasting in the mybb editor. That seems like asking quite a lot to copy code from the net.

MYBB catches indentations whereas the old forum squished it together. I guess this makes a codebox "less" required than it did before?
for example the regular text is formatted as i wrote, but shows as its expected (unlike the old forum)

for i in range(10):
    for j in range(10):
        for k in range(10):
            for p in range(10):
                pass

:huh:

I edit that same post and removed the empty line, and it stayed gone.
