This forum is buggy!!
Yo guys, give Wallace Winfrey some more time to spend on this forum!! Man I’m here, working hard to report BUGS in max so that they may be fixed, which I am not paying myself for, and then even the forum appears to be buggy.. that is INCREDIBLY ANNOYING!!!
.. Whew, glad I got that off my chest.
But when I press Preview Message, only half of it will be visible and put back in the textarea. Try it for yourself.
geez ..time for a cup of coffee.

Sorry for my ferocity in the first post. Guess that was one of those days with a lot of lost time due to other ppls bugs.
I had this particular problem again today. It looks like it occurs when copying text from the max window.
I pasted the text of my post in TextWrangler en selected “Show invisibles”. I found that exactly on the position where the text disappears when pressing ‘Preview’, in TextWrangler, there is a red upside down questionmark. You can also see it in the textfile I uploaded (see first post). It is after the line:
“This outputs in the max window: top patcher is
C74, have a look. I think this is a bug that can be fixed quite easily.

This is not as easy as you might think, and it’s not really an issue of Cycling letting me have more time to work on forum bugs.
My advice is this. Either link to your code when the forum won’t accept it, or try to attach it (I know this doesn’t always work either).

Another option with “well formed bug reports” ™ is to send them to support.

I understand your explanation, I agree, this is not easy. But still it’s more easy than you think. Read on.
So the fix for this entire problem would be to let post() without arguments not print 00 (null) but 0A (an official new line feed) into the max window.
And yeah, Wallace has nothing to do with this, so doesn’t his time schedule, which I am in no position to speculate about in the first place. In short, my apologies and forget the first post.

However, it would be cool to let us free to post clickable ftp and http URLs in HTML formatting for onboard readers.

Ok, it’s not true.
I have no idea where the null character comes from. Fact is that it entered that post somehow and I had the same problem earlier. So forget it for now, I’ll try to find out what’s happening and then start a new thread.
