VBcode not displaying in thread titles
« on: February 25, 2013, 10:30:09 am »
I was looking for a countdown timer, and had a thread entitled "Searching for a countdown timer." 

Rather than deleting the thread after finding one, I edited it to reflect that a timer had been discovered.  The new title should appear as "Searching for Found a timer overlay!"

But the code isn't properly modifying the appearance of the font.  I assume this is a bug and not an intentional part of the forums.

Hi @Blast:

It's a desktop application.  It states that it's also useable in PPT.  You will need it installed on your desktop, and call it from PPT or by itself as a standalone app.

He means the forum code, not the stopwatch code.

He added formatting codes into a thread title, and they don't display properly.  Apparently.

Ahh, ok.  It's to prevent weird formatting for thread titles.
