That didn't work then, wmmc
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.
It's working now! Blimey this is FABULOUS!!!!
oh my gawd it's the continuum alrightI want my OFRS
So we could for example say really rude things as long as cage them in a <> Perhaps best not to though......
What, along the lines of WMMC <is a big fat smell> sort of thing?
Where's that hole when you need it?
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>
<hole is here>
oooohhhhhh, check that out.......Is this what the 'test thread please ignore' is about?
<hole is not here>
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.
Silverymoon - no idea what Olivia is up to. Perhaps they are doing a code release or have just done one. CBA to go look.
oooh code release[actually none the wiser]
Oooh <ridiculously interested>What we need now is someone clever to tell us why. Where are the geeks?
It only works in thread titles!
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.
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
