Special Characters in Descriptions

Bottom of Page

1 to 7 of 7

  1.  

    I'm trying to get tabs delineated in the description field of Profile.

    What kind of language do I have to use to get Character Entities to be recognized?

    for instance:

    "&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp & # 09 ;&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp"

    Let me revise this.

    I'd like a little formatting. Possibly an FCK Editor? Like in Task comments.

  2.  

    The page you actually type in for description:

    When I look at the page source for the area that has the Description Text Field, it is properly fomatted.

    The page you see for the Profile:

    The formatting does not show up. However When I view the page source the formatting IS there. ???Confused???

    hey jnhearne, can you give me an example on the page where this is happening? I don't know if this is a forum post or intervals issue. -- Jaime

    Thanks Jaime for getting back to me on this


    This:

    https://company.timetask.com/projects/edit/0101/

    VS.

    This:

    https://company.timetask.com/projects/view/0101/

    Whatever formatting you do in edit view does not take effect in view view. I know it may not seem all too important because executive users don't see profile descriptions, but the same thing happens in task comments even with the FCK editor. And we use the "Email this page" as a tool for our clients.

    For example a task with the advanced html editor turned on:

    https://company.timetask.com/tasks/view/0101/

    I just recently tried to type this into the textarea:



    <p>*&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Just checking on the ability &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;to add
    spaces and tabs</p>
    <table border="1">
    <tr>
    <td>Some text</td>
    <td>Some text</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td></td>
    <td>Some text</td>
    </tr>
    </table>
    *&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;blah


    When I hit save, here is how it looks


    <p>*&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Just checking on the ability &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;to add
    spaces and tabs</p>
    <table border="1">
    <tr>
    <td>Some text</td>
    <td>Some text</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td></td>
    <td>Some text</td>
    </tr>
    </table>
    *&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;blah


    I would expect it to look like this:


    *      Just checking on the ability        to add
    spaces and tabs










    Some text Some text
    Some text

    *      blah

    The project description field currently doesn't support advanced html. It only supports line feeds and it auto-hyperlinks your URLs.

    To me it makes sense to add support for more HTML tags. I'll run it by everyone here and see when and if it can be added.

    Thanks for the explanation!

  4.  

    Here are the current tags we support when you "Enable advanced editor" (if a tag isn't on this list it will be removed)


    headings

    h1,h2,h3,h4


    paragraphs

    p,br,sub,sup,blockquote,span,pre,code

    text styles

    a,i,b,u,del,strike,em,strong

    lists

    ol,ul,li

    tables

    table,caption, col, colgroup, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr

    We are in the process of adding img tags next.
