Forum - better formatting of posts, images links etc

For some time, since Nabble changed the way Forum posts were instantiated, they lost 'pretty' formatting.

I have managed to improve this somewhat, with limitations.

If you look at my test post, the first was Posted from the Forum, the second was a reply via email and the Mailing-list.

In the first, I used the
<raw>source code




OpenSCAD Admin - email* me if you need anything, or if I've done something stupid...
* on the Forum, click on my MichaelAtOz label, there is a link to email me.

oops - pushed the wrong button - premature post...

Starting from the top.

If you look at my test post, the first was Posted from the Forum, the second was a reply via email and the Mailing-list.

In the first, I used the B I & Link buttons and the
<raw>
source code
<//raw>
tags, (or via the 'More' button) to format code.
[only one slash - it wouldn't let me nest raw's]

In the second, I used email formatting and to set the .scad code to 'Courier New' & indented.


The limitation is that in a Forum reply, when you
<quote>
the pretty formatting, it gets lost.
But I think the pretty original is worth the limitation.

That may be fixable, needs some Javascript coding (extract MIME parts) if anyone wants to volunteer.

This has had limited testing in regards to email clients, so let me know here is there is anything too wrong going on.

Example of the limitation, in a Forum Reply, lost pretty formatting when using the quote.
