Does this site look broken?. Use the LitterTray web for test cases.

Well yes, I am a konqueror lover, so here my plea. Maybe it is also kind of "out of specs" to have a multiline text stored inside a

<input type="hidden" name="text" value="%HIDDENTEXT%"/>

as lt;input type="text" ... > is used to have one line of text in a form. Anyway, on submittion all newlines are removed from the text which is very naughty.

But hey, here's the fix which I already use in the NatSkin. Replace the above input line in editform.tmpl, editform.pattern.tmpl, preview.tmpl and preview.pattern.tmpl with

<textarea name="text" rows="10" cols="80" style="display:none">%HIDDENTEXT%</textarea>

SVN 8367 encodes \n in HIDDENTEXT


This change actually breaks browsers that do not grok CSS. I suggest to revert this change just for the ClassicSkin.

Hmmm. Have you tested a browser that does not handle CSS? What effect do you see? All I did in SVN 8367 was to encode \n's in HIDDENTEXT - I didn't touch the templates. I can't see how that would break non-CSS browsers.


My appologies, I did not read CC's comment carefully enough, I assumed the proposed fix with textarea. OK, the change is good then. Text in a a textarea with style="display:none" is shown by browsers that are not aware of style sheets.

BTW, Cairo changed newlines in hidden text field to %_N_% which got lost, then re-added in 8367. Careful refactor avoids these types of bugs.
