#8818 closed Bug (invalid)

bbcode plugin ignores newlines

Reported by: trikko Owned by:

Using this example:

If you copy some text from a simple (non-rich) text editor and paste to ckeditor on chrome 17 on linux (but same problem on other os), it drops newlines.

This text: " Here is

a multiline text "

become: "Here isa multiline text" when you read it using getData();

Chrome generate <div></div> where firefox (that works) generate <br />

This is because you have pasted plain text into WYSIWYG mode and not Source mode.
The rule is simple here: You paste HTML to WYSIWYG (it gets converted to bbcode) and text to Source mode (it gets converted to bbcode).

Let's say that you have pasted the below code. How should it be displayed?




Of course it should look like:

[b]Foo Bar Baz[/b]

The same thing happens with text.

Please also note that forums that use bbcode allow for creating message in theirs source mode only and theirs wysiwyg mode is only used for preview. Because CKEditor's wysiwyg mode is more interactive it might have brought confusion.

Please also note that differences between browsers in handling text from notepad were covered here:
