I'm beginning to feel like a pest lol but I have another ? ( 12:47:35 WedApr 17 2002 )

I made an announcement but it's not showing up on the board. I even closed my browser, deleted cookies, came in without logging on and didn't see it. Neither did the member who was already there. It's supposed to be an on-board announcement, not a pop up.

The announcement won't show for unregistered users. :smile: It will show only for people who were members of your board at the time the announcement was made. It's an announcement to all your members. :smile:

The announcement you have on there is:

Quote:

<p align=


And nothing else. That's why nothing's showing - because there isn't anything to show, basically. :smile:

Hmm, for some reason it won't take the code. I've pasted it in there 3 times already. :ohwell: Guess I'll try it without the html. Thanks :smile:

Ok, I can get it to show if I don't use html and that's fine. I just need to shorten the message because it keeps getting chopped off. I take it there's a size limit?
Thanks for the help :smile:

Nope, there's no size limit.

Just a thought, did you have a hard return after the <p align= ? If so, try it again now, and it should work fine.. :smile:

Yup tried it with and without, no luck. Although at least now I get an empty box! LOL! I'll keep playing with it. Maybe if I type the code instead of copying and pasting from FP2k. Thanks :smile:

Hi FootsieBear

Just a couple of comments about FP: FP inserts hard returns all over the place and can be a real PITA, if you want to copy and paste code.

Just an example: if you set up a table in FP and then pasted the code into a message box, it would display with a massive space at the top of the post. What you have to do is first paste the code into, say, MS Word or any good word processor and then do a "find and replace" - the "find" being paragraph marks (^) and the "replace" being nothing (don't type anything in there). Then everything will be fine.

The same would apply to your announcement - you have to strip out those paragraph marks if you compose it in FP.

Hope you can make sense of this! :smile:
