Discourse 1.8 Mangling Text in a Code Block


(Christopher Stone) #1

Hey Sam,

You have this issue marked as fixed and closed the topic, but in fact it is not fixed.

I just tried it on both the Keyboard Maestro Forum and the Meta-Discourse Forum.

What’s the latest word?

Thank you.


Take Care,
Chris

Hey Sam,

Hmm…

Testing this here works…

\\1 # AppleScript fenced code block

Testing in a new topic works.

In my original test this morning I must have hit the back-tick key instead of the 1 key and caused the problem myself.

It definitely does NOT work on the Keyboard Maestro forum though.

It’s using Discourse 1.8.10.

Do you have any insight into why that might be?

Thank you.


Take Care,
Chris

The insight is that you need to be on the current version to reflect work that we did in 1.9 … we did not switch to commonmark until 1.9, thus you don’t have the “fix” which is really a giant improvement.
