    For those that are frustrated by the HTML/formatting of our current forums...

    One quick solution is to simply add

    <pre>
    at beginning
    and
    </pre>
    at the end.

    Actually if you use this < p > < b r / > < / p > it will put the /p in for you and < p > < b r / > < / p > will actually give you breaks in your paragraphs

    "Actually"..

    if you try it with the < pre > and < / pre > method, it will actually add the P's and BR's for you. ^_^

    STEPS:

    Add without the spaces at top of your post the below text.
    < pre >


    PUT REST OF YOUR CONTENT HERE.
    THEN...

    Add the following

    </ pre > (again without spaces at the bottom of your post.

    You don't even need the </ pre > at the end. I've just been using < pre > at the beginning and then that makes your post show up as you type it, with all the spaces and line breaks and everything.

    Nice! Even easier! Auto-closing/wrapping HTML tags

    Yep, you only need closing tags for real coding. :)

    Either way, we no longer 'need' to know this (since the forum is fixed now) but knowing it is beneficial!
