So yeah, PC's text input is continuing it's campaign of hatred against me in a way I didn't even know websites could do.

Basically, when I'm trying to write a CSS heavy post and I preview it, the editor will randomly replicate parts of the CSS code, completely destroying the formatting of the post. This isn't something that I'm doing; the space will be blank when I click preview and once it has loaded the preview there will be a bunch of code in that empty space and everything will be broken.

Anyone know what the heck is going on and how I can make PC stop doing it?

Post what you are trying make in [noparse][/noparse*] tags so we can fix it. Usually messy formatting causes this. i.e. [cd][b]te[i]xt[/cd][/b]text[/i]

The specific thing I was working on was lost to my browser crashing. And yes, I was in WYSIWYG mode (Only just actually realised you could switch it out of that), would using the mode that actually shows bbcode rather than the effects stop this?

Yeah, it might. It'll automatically add bbcode when editing, so change the editing mode, and it should put an end to the madness.

fyi i use the wysiwyg editor on another site and it is terrible sometimes let me tell you.

I'll give it a go. Whatever it was it certainly isn't a WYSIWYG feature though. It was replicating entire paragraph long pieces of CSS coding.

I used to get that too so what I do now is format my post in WYSIWYG and then, before previewing, switching out of that mode xD works like a charm for me.
