Forum OpenACS Development: Re: OpenACS Permissions System - Performance Improvement Work

Andrew, I'm not seeing the wide preformats affecting the following posts, they all wrap nicely for me in Mozilla 1.7 on Mac OS X. Perhaps you're seeing something different or I don't understand your attempt to describe it.

Forum admins DO have an easy way to edit badly formatted posts. They click on the "edit" link attached to each forum post including every reply in every thread. The fact that you don't see it doesn't mean it's not there, it simply means you're not a forum admin.

Don, you are not currently seeing the bug because Jeff's change above papers over the most egregious forms of the problem, and your browser window is fairy wide. Narrow your browser window a lot, and you will still see the problem - at least, I would be quite surprised if you do not. I'm using Mozilla 1.7.2 on Linux, and AFAIK the problem is not browser specific.

Jeff's tweak makes things much, much better than before, and is good enough that a real fix is no longer critical, but it's not really the right fix. The old site had a correct fix.

Well, I don't see any "edit" link myself. But if it's made available to Admins, that's good.
