Tank, Asmo, anyone

When I try to modify text on my tsbket it does not work, that below has been font changed, size changed, coliur changed, centred snd emboldened - I have to put the mods in first then type in the middle of the nest or I lose the highlighting everyvtime I try to change after typing:

As below but with all brackets complete:
[font=comic sans ms [size=36pt [color=red [center [b EXAMPLE /b] /center] /color] /size] /font]

EXAMPLE
[/color][/size][/font]

Correct the coding is embedding order sensitive. That's the price of using free software :D

WTF do you find the  orrect order, or is it just SAS?

I sort of worked it out by trial and error.

Examples?

Or too much work?
Tomorrow is precious, don't ruin it by fouling up today.

I can't remember any. I sort of do it as I go. :(

Think I have sussed it, the more "basic" the modification the closer to the text it has to be:

TEST

[center [color=red [size=36pt [font=courier [b [i TEST /i] /b] /font]  /size] /color] /center]

Seems to be having lots of probs with the connection to HAF lately. Often takes ages to get to a thread or upload a reply. Little progress bar stops about 1/10th the way across for up to three minutes and now getting "lost connection to mySQL" error messsge. Tine of dsy does not serm to be a factor.

Any ideas?

I also got the same message. I took a screenshot and posted it on the HAF Facebook page where our esteemed Asmo lurks.

The search function bombed on me a few times yesterday, but I did not record the error message. Will try again today to see how it behaves.

Noted. Not had the problem myself.
