  • Looks like we need to try not to use [quote] in Breaking News

    I noticed this morning that it makes our shiny new front door look kinda funny when we use quote tags in breaking news:

    Oh, sure blame the fox. Don't we need some way to distinguish the article from the poster comments? Maybe we don't, I don't know. Using quotes is such a habit.

      We had the same issue at NU with the front page, but quotes really screwed things up there.

      What I did in your article was just dropped in some "white space" and then drew a longish line with the underscore key. That's the best way I know how. At NU, we wound up just having to make it a strict rule that comments had to go into a separate post because otherwise it caused issues, but I don't think that this software has that problem.

      I should tinker around in the vBAdvanced settings and see if there's some way to turn of avatars for that section. If it weren't for the avs, I don't think it would really be an issue. That may be a better solution, if that can be done.

        That seems to pretty much take care of it. Look at the front page now and see what you think.
