Just a quick note regarding this forum (as in the software, not this specific forum) : I’m quite new here, and when trying to make my first post, before posting anything I hit Preview.
Then, all I get is some error, stating that "Since this is one of your first posts, you are not allowed to embed links in your post." followed by the content of my post – well, not really, since it has been processed a little, e.g. i read:
The problem is, there was no link in my post, just a which, since emoticons are enabled by default, was then seen as a link.
It’s easy enough to disable emoticons, but:
emoticons probably shouldn’t not be seen as links
in such cases, it would be so much better/user-friendlier to show the posting page again, with the error message on top in some red area, and the post below it, so it can be modified/etc and posted/previewed again. Right now one needs to hit the browser’s “Back” button an hope that whatever had been typed shows up again (especially since the “error page” messed it up with a bunch of HTML) (FYI it did, I didn’t lose anything)
