White Space in Submit News

Postby Jedi Power » Thu Oct 04, 2007 8:18 pm

Hey all,

I am a newbie to Coranto trying to switch over from Cute News so I can use Server Side Includes. I have spent the last couple of days trying to work out the bugs and I am still having a couple of issues.

This issue is I use FrontPage to create my webpages. Don't use the functionality, just create the pages. I take the HTML from the news article and post it into the 'Submit News' field and the white space stays and ruins the look of the article. Cute News did not have that issue.

Any help would be fantastic! Thanks!

The default setting is for Coranto to convert newlines (carriage returns) into <br>. You can change this by going to the newsfields page and editing the settings for the Text field. You want to set Convert Newlines? to OFF.

If you search the forum for newlines you will find a number of posts that relate to this.

Thank you! I looked for about 3 hours on the boards for that little piece of information. Works great now. Take care!

It's especially nice to have the Empire with us! Welcome aboard!
