Community Content Wiki issues RRS feed

  • Question

  • Some issue:

    1. When editing or adding a CC item, blank lines included in the typing get stripped out. This, especially for code, can be very ugly. Can we have the old editor back please - the one that did not do this?

    2. When editing or adding code, the code may look perfect, but when submitted, extra lines can be added. I'd prefer to have the blank lines I want in the code, not random lines.

    3. There's no easy way to indicate hyperlink text in an article using the editor. I know I can use Live Writer to set this up, but it's hard.

    4. In the MSDN wiki, the tag "NULL" seems to be being entered an awful lot. Maybe someone is doing this deliberately but it looks like (another) but.

    5. When will the nice editor we have here in Forums be made available to Community Content. It's sub-optimal to have such a relatively poor editor for community content when the editor here is so much better.

    6. There seems no way to get colour codeing into code that's posted to the MSDN wiki. I post a bit of PowerShell code, and would like the code here to look as nice as at http://pshscripts.blogspot.com.

    Thanks ms for listening (NOT), listening to your customers (NOT) and thanks for the improved skin (NOT).
