Has anyone else experiance a problem whilst undoing edits? In the lastest revision/your text page, it shows <[thing]> type coding as new edits, when they're not. I've found undoing the edit doesn't make the coding disappear, but it's still quite problematic, as it makes it harder to define what changes have been make, also, if someone's added some of the coding inappropriately, it would be much harder to notice. SAo, is anyone else suffering this problem? Myself 123 12:42, October 7, 2011 (UTC)

Not for me. When I undo, I don't use the button, if that's what you're using. I just press the keys command-Z (if you're a PC user, Ctrl-Z).

Oh, oh I see. Sorry, got mixed up there. I'm not having a problem with undoing other's edits. I donno about you, but it's going great for me (wish I had rollback powers, though).

I haven't noticed any problems. I don't really understand what you've been seeing. -- Supermorff 20:46, October 7, 2011 (UTC)

Me neither. The only editing problem i've experienced lately is that whenever i use my signature, a page is permanently in coded format when editing. But that's just because my sig has complex coding. Jake the Hedgehog The Ultimate Apprentice 23:00, October 7, 2011 (UTC)

Your signature has simple coding, if you want to see complex, look at my sig. But that's just my opinion. And if you learn to code, using source mode is easy. --Bullet Francisco (talk) Contributions Editcount

It's complex enough for the wiki to not allow me to use visual mode on this forum. Jake the Hedgehog The Ultimate Apprentice 23:59, October 7, 2011 (UTC)

The word bubble actually did that. --Bullet Francisco (talk) Contributions Editcount

I use Monobook, so thus I do not use the new editor.--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round 04:58, October 8, 2011 (UTC)

I'm think I'm having a hard time explaining my problem, so it's probably best that I show you.

Undo edit problem

As you can see, it's counting coding such as <br> as new edits, when they're not, however undoing that edit wouldn't undo the coding, it just makes it a hassel to pinpoint what the actual edit is. Myself 123 13:57, October 8, 2011 (UTC)

Are you using the notoriously buggy visual editor? Just turn it off. -- Supermorff 18:30, October 8, 2011 (UTC)

No, I don't have it enabled, I'm really confused, I'm encountering this on other wikis too. Myself 123 20:52, October 8, 2011 (UTC)

That is indeed a most perplexing mystery. All I can suggest is you use the Community Central forums or go straight to Special:Contact. Let us know what you find out. -- Supermorff 21:10, October 8, 2011 (UTC)

Will do. Myself 123 21:13, October 8, 2011 (UTC)
