Why is text inside a CODE block still parsed for emoticons?

Phenom

I just posted this reply and it includes some KF code, but the text inside the CODE block is still being parsed for emoticons.

In KF there is a LOT of colons used so in a code block theres going to be problems with emoticons. Specifically I was trying to illustrate the following string:

(point modifiable) uiPoint1: uiSelectPoint:point:;

Surely CODE blocks should be exempt from parsing for emoticons and the like?

Note that I tried using pre formatted text instead but that looks the same:

(point modifiable) uiPoint1: uiSelectPoint:point:;

Hi @Inch -

 

We're currently expperiencing some issue with the code block. I've logged a Case with our platform vendor and when we have a resolution, I will post it here. Just wanted to make sure you knew we were actively working on this.

@Inch - We have adjusted some of the settings, can you test this again to see if it is now corrected?

 

Here is my test:

:p this is an emoticon but in the code box it should appear as a colon and the letter p.

 Thanks!

@SusanCinadr My old posts certainly look better now and your example is also OK. Those changes seem to have resolved the issue.

However, trying to input a code block in this reply failed! I clicked the "Insert Code" button and the pop-up appeared, but I couldn't type anything in it. See the attached image.

@Inch - this happened to me as well...what browser are you using? I was using Chrome at the time so it may be somethign our platform vendor needs to fix.

 

Thanks,

Hi Susan,

This is definitely broken in Chrome (Version 36.0.1985.143 m).

I have the "IE Tab" extension installed which allows you to have IE in a tab (some of our corporate intranet sites require IE). I tried it using the extension and it works (slowly) in there OK. I've also tried it in native IE (its been that long since I actually used IE I don't have any shortcuts or anything for it, I had to do Win-R and type iexplore Smiley Surprised). Anyway, it worked in there too.

Its odd though, because when I posted the original question I was using Chrome and the code block worked perfectly then. Seems like something changed in the meantime. Could it be something to do with your change to ignore emoticons in the code block?

The platform vendor has identified this as a bug in the system and not anything us users have done :-) I will keep you updated when this is fixed. 

 

Thanks,
