Stories losing paragraph breaks.
Authors: It's been brought to my attention that at least one of the older stories on the site has lost its paragraph breaks for some reason. I'm not clear why this is - because when I reviewed the story content box in the edit function, all of the necessary breaks were still there even though the story was displaying as a large block of text on the story page - but copying and pasting the text back into the box again from your original file and then saving it fixes the issue.

I'm really sorry this has happened, but please check your stories to make sure that this is an isolated error. As I said, I'm not sure why this has happened so I can't say that it won't happen again. I'm assuming that it's something that happened during the upgrade and just hasn't been spotted until now, but don't quote me on that.

Readers: This is an issue with the site, not the author. I would therefore appreciate it if you could stay polite when pointing out the issue to the author rather than accusing her of being ignorant. The site does have some minimum quality standards in place, and if the author really hadn't known that you needed to both break up chunks of text to make them readable online and that you had to start a new paragraph whenever someone new speaks, the story wouldn't have been added to the archive in the first place.

Thank you.

Several times, I have posted a new chapter or editted and old one, and all of a sudden, all of the quotation marks and dashes become strange letters and numbers like r0il or something. Is this just happening to me?

What browser are you using? Also, what format are you uploading your story from? If directly from Word, that could be it as Word is evil and uses smart quotes.

You can turn off the smart quotes on Word by going to the Tools menu, selecting AutoCorrect Options, then the AutoFormat tab, and unchecking "replace straight quotes with smart quotes". That makes it much easier to cut and paste into Livejournal as well.

Actually I had it happen to me on another eFiction based archive a short while ago. The story looked fine in the preview and the box I had pasted it in, but when I added it to the site the formating disappeared. Oddest thing.
