#1780 closed Bug (fixed)

Formatting removes space after a word (Mediawiki/WYSIWYG).

I have a website hosted by You can reproduce this problem by going to and using their sandbox. I could find out what version of fckeditor they are using but I know they are using mediawiki 1.11.

In the WYSIWYG view, if I select several words for formatting such that I also select the space after the last word, when I apply formatting and save it (or just switch to wikitext and back), the space after that last word is removed. And in WYSIWYG view, it you add that space back in, it will delete it again when you save it.

Ex. This is an example of a line of text. (I then select "example of a line " (by default the selection wants to include that space after "line"). I then click bold. Then if I switch to wikitext and back, I get: This is an example of a lineof text.

A few times, I have also encountered the problem of getting 6 or 9 apostrophes in a row when editing bold formatted text. I have been unable however to reproduce it.

I have also had the problems of added lines in bulleted/numbered lists like the comments on the main page.

I was looking forward to getting others to start using the Wiki with WYSIWYG but it's too buggy right now.

Thanks for your help.

You are right. I reviewed your problem and it exists. We will try to work on the problem. For now my suggestion is that you may mark words (sentences) without the space after the last word or try to work the bold text inside the wikitext: '''some text'''. I know it isn't a outrageous solution but unfortunately for now it is the only one.

Fixed with [1837]. See also bug #1015 regarding "6 or 9 apostrophes" issue.

Please test it if possible, because I'm not sure whether this fix is 100% correct.
