New Site and Annoying Problem
Squishdot Posted by Kelly Martin on Wednesday August 18, 04:13PM, 1999
from the too-much-whitespace-spoils-the-broth dept.
We've just finished putting up a squishdot for GNOME news (at http://developer.gnome.org:65348) and I've run into an irritating bug. Whenever I edit a posting it adds a bunch of whitespace at the start and finish of the article, and, worse, it replaces each newline in the article with two newlines. After a couple of edits the article has dozens of newlines and it gets hard to read in the editor. Any ideas?

      {OT rant}
      Sorry, but egroups sucks badly.
      I just can't tolerate that I have to register to get access to mailing list archives.
      There are no decent privacy laws in the US and I won't give any private information away just to read an archive.

      There are enough good free alternatives available, so you might consider to ask e.g. here for a mirror.
      This will become even more important when Squishdot becomes really successful.

      This will change pretty soon. I'll be setting
      up new mailing lists (also sponsored by
      Bruce Perens) for the Squishdot and Squishdot announcement mailing lists -- Butch Landingin (Squishdot maintainer)

        Good to hear, and thanks to Bruce for hosting
        the lists. Any chance of copying the message
        from the egroups archive to this thread? :-)
