Is anyone else seeing weird '<br></br>&*(%$@£%£%£@$' type code appearing on posts, particularly quotes? It appeared on my signature too when I tried to edit it the other day. I'm struggling to read some posts.

As well the rogue codes appearing, the Reply function now defaults to courier font only, and has no formatting/editing buttons.

I'm sure it'll be sorted, whatever it is.

Maybe it's an economy measure by Time Out. All those buttons and fonts must have been expensive.

It's been a problem for a few days now - surprised it hasn't been fixed. Presume a software update for the forum went slightly awry.

Agreed. Problem for me too. Seems to be when quotes are used?

Just delete the <br /><br /><br />uckers when you post, or edit them out subsequently.

Yes, have been, I wondered how they might be prevented from appearing in the first place.

I think they may happen when people insert extra blank lines, but when I tried it with a first draft of this post they didn't appear.
I have always hated eggs. I remember back when I was a sperm I tried to head-butt one. It did not end well.
