Cant post a reply

Hi there admin people ,

Im trying to post a reply to someone on a forum. I typied out the reply on Microsoft word (im a bad speller), but when I copy and paste the reply to the forum, it adds <<<< at the end of each paragraph. Also it adds smilly faces I did not add. I reformat the reply, removing the smilly faces and <<<<, but still get this error message:

"You have included 44 images in your message. You are limited to using 25 images so please go back and correct the problem and then continue again.

Images include use of smilies, the BB code [img] tag and HTML tags. The use of these is all subject to them being enabled by the administrator"

I did not add images or smilies. How can I post my reply ?.

Kind Regards

Hayden

The reason copy/paste from word does not work is because such programs always include hidden formatting codes in their documents that throw html interpreting programs off.

The only way around this is to produce a plain text document (.txt) for instance by using wordpad instead of word itself. Copy paste from any such program will give better results.

Copy it from Word to Notepad.

Copy it from Notepad to ADDF.

In future, use a simple text editor like Notepad or Notepad++ to draft your posts.

Re: Cant post a reply

The same thing happens to me. I think, MS Word adds some kind of tags and formatting, which are interpreted as images.

You could copy your text from Word into Notepad to get rid of the extra formatting and then copy the text from Notepad and paste it into your reply here.

Hope this helps.

Oops, sorry, I didn't realise that someone had replied already...

Re: Cant post a reply

You guys are a legend, thanks so much for your replies, so quick !!!.

I sorted it out, disabled smilies on reply tab on forum, it made my post boring (by not adding smilies), but was trying to find way around it, and I did not think I would get a reply so quickly.

Thanks heaps

Hayden

Re: Cant post a reply

Oh, I just saw that you use Word for spellcheck.

In this case, what you should do is draft your post, then save a text file (.txt, NOT .docx). This will remove the formatting tags.

Then Copy-Paste as usual
