Hello!

I've now seen two instances of the spoiler box showing the guidelines for formatting your text not opening up.

One person is using Safari. I'm using Opera. here

Spoiler:
It works just fine here.

But the instructions that appear below the text box isn't opening up.

Not working in Vivaldi either. I click the Show button, literally nothing happens.

Any word from the hard-working Paizo folks on when this might be resolved?


In the meantime can we compile what we remember of the formatting?

This is what I remember, all with square brackets instead of curly ones.

URL - {url="http link"}text overlay{/url}
Bold - {B}Bolded Text{/B]
Italics - {I}Italic Text (/I}
Smaller Text - {Smaller}Text{/Smaller}
Rolling Dice - {Dice=Text for title} (number)d(sides)+modifier{/Dice}
Out of Character - {OOC}OOC text{/OOC}

I know there was one for larger text, but I can't remember it.

Any others?


newest version of firefox not working

Seems to be not working pretty universally. My guess is it is a problem with the site, not with any browser. Somebody broke something.


Doesn't work for me either

They're really slow at fixing this. Temporarily, here's what I remember. There doesn't seem to be an escape character for BBCode, so I can't do this exactly the way it's done when the button is working.

Use these tags with a closing tag (the same tag but you put a forward slash / in the closing tag)
[x] stuff [/x]

[b] bold
[i] italic
[s] strike through

Quotes and links are autoclosing for me, so I'm leaving off the ending square bracket
[quote
or
[quote=source

[url
or
[url=xyz.com] If you use this one, the words before the closing tag will appear in blue and function as a link.

[spoiler
or
[spoiler=label]

If there's some I missed, let me know and I'll supply them

It is not easy to maintain a platform with such a high traffic as Paizo.com so just be patient. Meanwhile we can just remove the "expandInlineBlock" missing function from the html code (F12 to open your browser dev tools) to see this:

the bigger tag isn't working in chrome

bigger
smaller

in that it is bigger than smaller... but smaller than normal text


The button doesn't work for me, either.

Likewise, this button doesn't work for me (using Chrome, on a Mac OS).

Bigger/smaller tag isn't working for me either, which is a bit of a problem as I need bigger text for PBP I am co-GMing and now I need to put that post on hold. Quite frustrating.

We identified the issue and will have a fix implemented by early next week....

Thanks Dean!

I had only noticed the problem because I was trying to explain to someone new to the forums how to format their text. And lo and behold, your site's wonderful little "how to" button wasn't working. :(

I appreciate your team looking into it! :)

Hmmm ... this STILL seems to not be working. Is there any updates on when this will be fixed???


Yeah, it still doesn't work for me.

Yeah, according to Dean a month ago, they had "identified the issue and will have a fix implemented by early next week"

I'm assuming something unexpected happened maybe?

Grand Lodge

Yes, this is not working for me for at least a week now, I tried both Chrome and Edge.

Lucky for me I memorized most of them.

Liberty's Edge

Yep, I've resorted to making a cheat sheet as well.

Still might be nice if the 'How to format your text' actually worked though ...


Can confirm, still not working.


Re-confirmed. Not working here either (Firefox).
