Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to OpenACS web site

Hah, this just reminded me of another fix: I'd let you change the HTML/plaintext flag of a post after you'd posted it.

The original code (running on doesn't allow you to change that. Instead the formatting code does a quick check to see if there are any <p> tags in a plaintext-formatted post, and if so, ignores the plaintext setting and formats it as an HTML posting anyway.

This has the unintended consequence that if you post something where you *do* want it to be plaintext, because you need to quote a bunch of HTML code that you want displayed verbatim, well, you can't. You have to do the &amp;lt;foo&amp;gt; thing.
