tag error

 Comcode tags

When writing in WYSIWYG when I preview something I am writing for a new page it does not always show the spaces or line breaks. I have to go in and add the <p> tags. When I disable this and write the code in myself it doesn't recognize or accept the code.

Is there a setting or something I may have missed in the admin area?

Please be more specific and we may be able to help. What web browser and version are you using? Do multiple line breaks and spaces collapse to one or disappear entirely? How are you "adding in the <p> tags" if you're doing this before "disabling this"? What exactly isn't accepting the code:
  • is there an error message, or does it merely not work?
  • are you attempting via plain Comcode, or via an HTML tag, or via a SEMIHTML tag?
Can you provide reproduction steps, showing exactly what to type to recreate the problem?

I am receiving the semihtml tags, and other tags when writing.

The window normally opens showing the disable WYSIWYG. The box basically look like writing in word.

I initially start writing my text, or copy it from my other site to transfer. I hit preview when I am done and it is the way I want it. Preview turns it into something else, and usually states/indicates tag errors, which I didn't initially write.

In order to fix it, I have to go through and edit all the code.

I am not receiving stack errors on them

Ok hopefully that narrows it down for you.

I think I have a better idea of what's happening now. If you could tell me:
  • what web browser you use (this is crucial, as they all handle WYSIWYG very differently)
  • the URL to an actual site where copying text from to paste into the WYSIWYG error causes this problem
Once I have these details it should be relatively straightforward for me to step through and fix the problem. However I'm stuck until then as we've conducted extensive tests on the editor and I currently do not know of a method to break it.
