Fixing bug when clickin in the "read more" link in the blog tool see #2131



Updated by Marko Kastelic about 9 years ago

two more pictures are attached that shows corrupted structures of the blog posts.
the bug is introduced in and it exists in development 1.8.8. I do not know why, but the reason is in construction of blog introduction (line 742, blog.lib.php)

if we change

  $introduction_text .= " $tok";

  $introduction_text .= '&nbsp'.$tok;

the structure is fixed and read more works as expected.
This is a bit strange. I used tokenizer many times before as is used in original source and there were no problems at all. But my strings were not utf-8 encoded.

nope, not good for now blogpost_text section is messed ..., but at least read more works

it works well for me at least in FF 3.6


Updated by Marko Kastelic about 9 years ago

this snaphot was taken with FF 3.5.1 from beeznests server right now. Same result, different structure i'm getting from mine (dedicated) server with ff 3.6, (php 5.2) and while using

$introduction_text .= '&nbsp'.$tok;

i noticed, that nbsp; is inserted inside some span tags like
<span&nbsp; style=> ... 

the reason for the mess inside strings could be a memory shortage..

very nice: read more works now (the fix is good for now)

a) button for saving new blog almost overlaps existing blog list if there is a previous blog; a little more space is needed
b) there is a case, and abnormal blog behaviour, when copy/paste from web page content is used (html formated text). Sample pictures are attached, content is taken from First picture shows selected content, second 2 blog posts (upper with pasted unchanged html, lower with pasted pure text with no html formating). You can see read more link inactive. The 3rd shows expanded the same 2 posts with overlaping divs ...(read more was activated by manual removal of the first /empty/ line of the post)

Well, copy-pasting doesn't always work great (mostly because some JavaScript code is trying to make sense from the copied code and when it cannot, it lets go without modification - and maybe the copied code didn't have the closing tags). I don't think that really a major bug. If we manage to fix it, we will probably break something else in the process.

Marko, if you find a common pattern that we can work on, please open a specific task for it. In the meantime and considering ur tight schedule, I'm closing this bug.

Thanks for reporting by the way!
