I have a draft saved, I go to the "your blog" link, click the edit icon for the draft and the quick edit box comes up. I make some changes, thinking I'd go into the advanced mode for some more editing, clicked "Go Advanced" and all my changes were gone in the advanced edit box. Very annoying.

There's a new version of the blog code out, fixes some minor problems. I have it on mytodo list for today, I'll install it, let you know when I've done that, so you can check it out.

OK, the blog code has been updated. (Was 2.01, is now 2.02).

Let me know if this still happens. If it does, I'll look into it. I just wanted to update the code first before I started going off looking for problems.

Thanks for the heads up. I have tested it and it still happens. It happens both with drafts and non-drafts.

On a related note, I get a permission error when I try to delete my test blog draft.

click the edit icon for the draft and the quick edit box comes up.

I'm not sure exactly what this is referring to here. Please elaborate. Or post a pic dump or something.

Okay.

PS, evil uploader thingy converted my beautiful PNGs to ugly JPEGs. Heh.

OK, verified. It happens to me as well. I'll report it, see what the deal is after trying it on the support board, as their first response is always "Are you using custom templates? If so, don't do that".

In the meantime, don't do that! :)

Thanks.

Any thoughts on the delete permission issue I have?

One thing at a time. :)

Sure thing, it's just that didn't occur before this new update. I could delete my blog posts and drafts just fine before.

Could be a permissions issue. I'd have to look at it, but I'm trying to track down the first thing.

Edit: Try it now. I'll have to report the "go advanced" thing as a bug.

Also, the "Go Advanced" problem has been reported (http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showthread.php?t=305102).

Thanks, and yes the deletion works now. :)

Their support people said they couldn't duplicate it (I also filed a support ticket on it). I'll have to have them log in over here and see what the deal is.

They logged into a test board of mine, and were finally able to duplicate it. It's being formally classified as a code bug, and I was asked to file it for the next revision of the software. This will require a code change, so until that's fixed, the immediate solution is to not do that.

Edit: Formal bug report filed (http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/project.php?issueid=27570) per their request.

Cool beans. It's easy to work around, but it was very annoying when I found it; I lost a lot of text.

This apparently has been fixed, and will be there in the next version of the blog software.

There's apparently a fix I can make now to correct the problem, but I'm having difficulty accessing their fix info.

OK, I've got the code update installed.

It appears to have solved the problem in my test. Let me know what you find, Bludd.

It seems to be working. Great news. :)
