Description of Problem: Use the API to make posts. This has worked perfectly for the last 4 months (the last being Monday 3/11/19) until today. I created a couple very simple test to narrow down the problem:
Data being sent thru API:
Image of the result:
Notice the highlighted first header/data separator. Somehow it was changed from 3 dashes to a full line. The second separator was not changed. I believe this is the problem. Because the first column separator is not 3 dashes anymore, it doesn’t interpret it as a markdown table anymore. I just don’t know what causes the 3 dashes to change to this line char(s).
I can (sort of) replicate this ‘changing of dashes to a line’ when posting manually as well. If I enter this (note the second column separator is 3 dashes)…well, it is until it posts…
The post will actually show the second separator now as a full line. Since, I’m a new user to this site, it’s saying I can’t post more than two images (huh?), so I can’t show the exact image, but here is a test url: https://try.discourse.org/t/test-table-cause-seeing-problem/1335
I believe whatever is causing that change of the dashes to the line character, is also what is affecting the 3 dashes to change in the API as well. But, this is all a guess.
Can someone please help shed any light on this? 1) Why is this happening? 2) Did something change recently that could have caused this?
