Ooookay... Vanishing bits of posts?

When you put something in the triangle brackets ( < / <<) & ( > / >>), the word or words in it disappear.

You type <<sigh>>, or <sigh>, and the brackets remain but the word vanishes?!

I am on the App if that makes a difference? Can others see them and not me? I know Tech has been doing a bit of work on links, but nothing has been said about this?

CouthyMow Thu 14-Jun-12 12:42:07

See, my sighs disappeared?!

CouthyMow Thu 14-Jun-12 12:43:13

I've also had an italics fail today. Wonder if bolting still works properly?

testing, testing

You'll never know.....

CouthyMow Thu 14-Jun-12 12:44:53

BolDing, obviously, not bolting, and that still works, italics are iffy, and the App doesn't like me using the smileys that aren't on the little bar.

I tried thanks earlier, and it wasn't showing.

grin Fenton!

Your sighs are still there.

You've typed pointy brackets, sigh, then pointy brackets doubles first then singles.

I'll type it and you see if you can see it...

<<sigh>>, or <sigh>

I can see it - must be your app.

CouthyMow Thu 14-Jun-12 12:52:52

I can't see it, and I can't see it when others write in 'creepy brackets' either. Single creepy brackets and the whole thing disappears, double creepy brackets and all that's left is a single pair?!

I only reinstalled MN yesterday as it got stuck when loading again.

<worries that CouthyMow has typed herself into creepy wee brackets and has vanished herself>

I wonder......


will that fix it?

Back in a sec

<cunt flaps>

ohchristFENTON Thu 14-Jun-12 12:55:41

that post isn't going to make a lot of sense to you then!

Cooo-eeeee Tech, my love, we've got an interesting one for youuuuu!

IamtheZombie Thu 14-Jun-12 12:55:52

Strangely enough, Zombie had this on another site she uses. She asked the site owner about it and his reply was:

We usually have to zap/encode these to stop people (Spammers, viruses) trying to insert HTML into the system.

Perhaps the app is more vulnerable to such things?

Right off to have fun with invisible posts and piss of tech gringringringrin

scottishmummy's going to love this glitch.

You can't read my cunt flaps on the app how thrilling

CouthyMow Thu 14-Jun-12 13:08:50

Cunt flaps?! How would you read cunt flaps then?! grin

(And no, I can't read your cunt flaps)

Had a woo one a minute ago - an education thread from my threads I'm on. When I went to read it, the whole thread, names and all, we're in italics. Posted, and the thread went back to normal?!

MN goes Woo today, I think!

CouthyMow Thu 14-Jun-12 13:09:52

Yes, the inverse creepy brackets does 'fix' it, I can see it when they are inversed?!

CouthyMow Thu 14-Jun-12 13:17:14

Where's Tech? Lunch break's over! grin

(probably having a siesta after posting in the other thread before 5am this morning...)

IamtheZombie Thu 14-Jun-12 13:20:42

Tech is probably having breakfast. It's only 8.20 am in his shed.

CouthyMow Thu 14-Jun-12 13:24:10

He posted on the other thread that he was in London today! So this lunchtime. Maybe the jet lag has got him?!

Tech (MNHQ) Thu 14-Jun-12 13:41:24

Hi, We'll have a look at this. It's another side effect of trying to support the two versions of the app at the same time. Ooh me head.

Tech (MNHQ) Thu 14-Jun-12 14:48:26

Hi all, I think these should be displaying correctly now.

CouthyMow Thu 14-Jun-12 15:48:17

Cheers! Odd side effects - maybe MN had double vision through running the two Apps? grin
