Count and layout bugs September 29, 2000 8:36 PM   Subscribe

The `N# of posts` isn't increasing in Metatalk. I was occasionally coming back and just reading that number last night and it hasn't changed with the addition of (at least) 2 posts.

I think

...breaks the layout, too.

OK, so HR breaks the layout in the preview only.

Oooh, and as someone else said, I wrote HR with & l t ;, & g t ; surrounding it and it was converted to the actual html tags.

if you're writing fake html-style tags, you need to convert the & to an & a m p ; (to use holloway's style) so you end up with &a m p ; l t ;

that only works in metafilter though, not metatalk. in metatalk you should be able to just use the ol' & l t ;, unless you're posting a new topic (which *cough* this one isn't :-).

Basically, if you're going to end up previewing a post, you have to use & a m p ; for the ampersand.

Damn, my mental programming just hates it when I add spaces to escape characters. :-)

Yeah, the new # of posts works off the same last visit to metafilter specifically, and not metatalk separately.

so if you're like me, you normally visit metatalk once a day or couple of days, and hit metafilter more often.

then the "new" indicators on metatalk about be useless.

I'll work on a way to keep track of that.
