That didn't work then, wmmc grin

You saw that too luxuryhamper - see I'm not going tonto! Hurrah!

Fear ye not Reality - I think it's just a temp system blip.

I know what you are testing...and at this particular instant it didn't work but look again in 30 seconds and it will.

Dunno. Why it changes.minute to minute tho.

It's the Mumsnet hole in the space-time continuum.

whomovedmychocolate Mon 29-Aug-11 20:22:22

oh my gawd it's the continuum alright

I want my OFRS

whomovedmychocolate Mon 29-Aug-11 20:28:16

So we could for example say really rude things as long as cage them in a <>

Perhaps best not to though......

BecauseImWorthIt Mon 29-Aug-11 20:30:08

What, along the lines of WMMC <is a big fat smell> sort of thing?

BecauseImWorthIt Mon 29-Aug-11 20:30:55

Where's that hole when you need it?

whomovedmychocolate Mon 29-Aug-11 20:31:57

Yes BIWI but it would need to be in a thread title <and for the record I will hunt you down and pelt you with rotten mouse carcasses if you try it> smile

Pamplemoussse Mon 29-Aug-11 20:32:08

<hole is here>

SilveryMoon Mon 29-Aug-11 20:32:20

oooohhhhhh, check that out.......
Is this what the 'test thread please ignore' is about?

Pamplemoussse Mon 29-Aug-11 20:32:28

<hole is not here>

SilveryMoon Mon 29-Aug-11 20:35:22

So, you can't see the <> bit in the thread title when it's on active, but if you view it from the site stuff board, you can. How odd.

whomovedmychocolate Mon 29-Aug-11 20:36:45

Silverymoon - no idea what Olivia is up to. Perhaps they are doing a code release or have just done one. CBA to go look.

Pamplemoussse Mon 29-Aug-11 20:38:15

oooh code release

[actually none the wiser]

Hassled Mon 29-Aug-11 20:38:57

Oooh <ridiculously interested>
What we need now is someone clever to tell us why. Where are the geeks?

rumpleteaser Mon 29-Aug-11 20:48:13

It only works in thread titles!

HauntedLittleLunatic Mon 29-Aug-11 20:55:49

I think it is because html uses code in <i> bracketty thingies so it sees stuff in <> thingies as code not text to display.

you will also find that anything in <> thingies is not searchable wether in title or message.

whomovedmychocolate Mon 29-Aug-11 21:23:09

If it was just because of the coding that wouldn't display differently on different menus. It must be because of the way the code is parsed in different menu loads I think.

Anyway Olivia knows now so quick, scamper off and be free with the pointy brackets grin
