Don't convert newline characters into <BR /> inside <PRE>...</PRE>

I use FCKeditor at Seedwiki. When I type, say, a computer program inside <PRE>...</PRE> tags, all newline characters become <BR /> tags. A code like:

FOR A = 0 TO 255

becomes a LONG SINGLE line:

<pre>FOR A = 0 TO 255<br />   PRINT CHR$(A);<br />NEXT A</pre>

(Just imagine a 100+ line program...)

For a number of reasons sometimes it's preferable to use the TextArea editor, or simply we are stuch with a browser where FCKeditor's WYSIWYG feature doesn't work. In those cases, we must face the nightmare of editing that long single line.

Hence my suggestion: don't convert newline characters into <BR /> inside <PRE>...</PRE> tags.

You should consider using CodePress instead of FCKeditor.

Using CodePress is not an option. Seedwiki just happens to use FCKeditor.

I was unable to reproduce this bug. Could you provide more information?

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

Indeed, I have tried the Nightly Build and it is working fine. No <BR /> is introduced.

The problem occurs at wikis. I guess they're using an outdated version of FCKeditor.

Thanks a lot, anyway.
