Test of Formatting. [Nov. 13th, 2016|05:06 pm]
e_moon60
This is a test of LiveJournal's formatting of text, since some of the text in the previous post was not formatted correctly, although it looked good in the editing pane.  There's not an easy "word wrap" fix in LJ, so there's no apparent way to fix a post that doesn't handle word wrap on its own.  This amount of text should wrap into the usual space.  Let's see if it does.  If it does, then I will try an additional bit of text added after this one and a "break" function.


And here's more text that should format into normal "word wrap" paragraphs within the LJ cut function.   Will it do so?  This should test the operation of that function.   It it turns into single lines that run off the "page", then the glitch is somewhere in that function.   If not, the problem in the previous post is something else.

First test looked OK. Now for phase two.

That was interesting. The "read more" button hung up (cycling without actually opening the cut text) though I could still click on the post subject line and get to full post that way. And the text in the cut is correctly formatted.

My guess is that someone's tinkered with the code for the LJ cut, or with the length of post. Or both. Annoying.

And now the "read more" button works normally on this post.

Unfortunately, the text mis-formatted in the original post could not be made to format correctly, so I deleted it and replaced it.

This post displayed well on my friends page and the "read more" functioned.

Not sure if by "this post" you mean this particular post, about the problem, or the post the problem occurred in, the previous (with an image of a navy, gray, and white sock above and below the cut.

If you meant this post, the one about the problem, it never had the problem about formatting, and the difficulty with the "read more" button was temporary.

It was the sock post that had the formatting problem, and there only in text below the picture of the red socks. Its "read more" button always worked. Nothing I tried fixed the two paragraphs of text that were not correctly formatted (eacn entire paragraph became one long line running off the page. This lack of formatting did not show in the editing panel, so I deleted that text and put in a short label for that image.

Read more never works for me

Read more on THIS site never works right for me in Chrome (it does work in IE). I get to see all the text in Chrome by viewing comments and scrolling up.

Re: Read more never works for me

I don't use Chrome, and it works fine in Firefox and IE. If Live Journal is incompatible with Chrome, that's something for either Chrome or Live Journal support to work out.

In my default view template of friends' posts your first paragraph was fully right justified. The second paragraph is ragged edge.

When I look at them in your template both are ragged edged.

I don't know what you mean by "your template" and "my template." Do you mean the theme I chose?

I'm also not clear on whether you were looking at the post that had the formatting problem (Subject: And the "finished" sock pictures) when it still had the problem, or that post long after I'd dealt with the problem, or this post, Test of Formatting.

I am using the same theme I started with (because it was plain and I liked the color), and have been composing all my posts since then in exactly the same way, using the Visual Editor as supplied by LiveJournal.

In the post about the problem with formatting, when I look at it in my theme it is justified. In your theme, it is ragged.

The post about the finished socks, the formatting is a ragged margin in either theme. (I really like the stripped socks, btw. The colours are very much in a palette I like to wear.)

Thank you. Now I understand. My theme apparently makes everything ragged right. Not sure why your theme interprets them differently, since I just write in the box and let the software do whatever it's going to do. Not always happily, but I don't have time to mess with it.
