various ^H hacks (30, permasaged)

Bug in

You can use ^H to kill parts of previously parsed HTML tags, e.g. if you may cut <strong> to non-closed <s making it strike the whole page, or cut <!--$#hidden--> to <!-- and --> in some other thread to hide portions of page. Have somebody ever fixed this without disabling ^H completely?

See, it works even here. BTW, Firefox dies with "not well-formed XML" unless you have USE_XHTML = 0.

Well, while we're at it, theres a rather serious bug with the html tag parser -- or rather, it's completely functional, apart from the fact that it's not an html parser at all. If you write <em/> it won't convert it to <em></em> like it ought, and browsers don't parse the resulting page "correctly". I've tried it with firefox, opera, safari, and msie, and they all end up making the whole rest of the page italic. Same goes with <strong> and so on.

(And there really should be <code> or <tt> or something in the allowed html tags list.)

Example of previous post. This should not be bold, but browsers get completely confused by the self-closing tag.

Probably want the right markup format.

Well, it's not a HTML parser, it's an XHTML parser. I guess it's probably a bad idea to have it enabled if pages aren't sent as XHTML... Not sure what to do about that.

I guess the bug should be fixed, though.

It's sure been a while since I messed with this code base, so I might have gotten something wrong, but here we go:

There are some older bugfixes and such rolled in too. Somebody try it out and tell me if it works as it should.

Not a bug IMO: board behaves like every other thing you can feed your 202e to, thus no need to fix it.

17 Name: iSage!ISage.aan6 : 2009-04-17 01:45 ID:VMAfDL2p [Del]

looked into the code

diff -EBbr --normal ./ ../wakaba_new/
< BEGIN { require ""; } # edit this line to change the board style
> BEGIN { require ""; } # edit this line to change the board style

that's wrong.

that should be "name","email","subject","comment"

Fixed the first, the second is not a mistake.

Then why thread with this symbol in a subject was removed?

20 Name: Anonymous : 2009-04-18 18:39 ID:Heaven [Del]

I dunno, author deleted it or admin got butthurt? This has nothing to do with wakaba code anyway.

Because it was a useless thread taking up space.

I really hope I don't get in trouble for bumping this, but I'm kinda confused about just what is... Can anyone clarify a bit?

26 Name: Anonymous : 2012-10-22 09:12 ID:Heaven [Del]


I'm guessing I'm not going to get an answer...

27 Name: Anonymous : 2012-10-22 09:38 ID:Y0j9MB1q [Del]

Oh wow. I think I got it. It took a bit of googling, but is there any chance this is one of the little easter eggs that's mentioned in the docs? Its either that or there was a time you expected people with terminals from the 80s to use Wakaba.
