Well damn!

I just looked over the new routes list for the first time since the site was "saved/upgraded."

All of the formatting is gone! No bold, no centering and no underlining. I noticed too that I also forgot to add a route to this list that BAP and I finished in... February? Maybe early March?

It looks like a huge job to get all this fixed. Sigh. Well, on the other hand, the whole site could have been lost and I'm grateful that that didn't happen.

I'll try to get to it soon.

I had a problem with the Rebolting Master List with the old forum. I had to start saving my WORD doc as Plain Text.
It still looks okay.
You might want to try that (Mudworm suggested it when I was having problems and it worked).

Yes, in my experience, the act of posting on this forum strips formatting away from existing, copied, now-to-be-pasted text. So my Pinnacles New Routes list, in Microsoft Word, is already formatted as I like it (with bold, centering and underlines). But when I copy/paste it here, that formatting is stripped.

So I've always just reformatted the now-stripped text in the box provided by this site to write in for a post, before hitting "post."

This isn't/wasn't as much work as it might seem since I rarely post more than one or a few new routes at a time.

Somehow though the recent "save" stripped all of this sites own formatting from the entire list. All that formatting that had basically "accumulated" over years. Oh well.

It'll take time to put it back the way I prefer it, but I'll do it.

When I copy and paste new information from the list to a WORD doc, I select all and immediately tell it to remove all formatting.
Then I put it in the format I want (Arial font saves ink) and I get rid of all the extra info to save more ink.
I usually increase the font too (whoops - there goes all the ink I saved) so I don't have to look like clink at the crag.
There must be some secret way to boldly go where no one has gone before on the Redux Forum.
Maybe Mud knows...he is pretty bold.
Hopefully it's not too bold of me to ask.
Will clink chime in or will he be bowled over?

How is the new guide coming along?

Surely it will be released before the new Yosemite phone book sized guide comes out.
I'm not worthy.

Well, that was easy to figure out.

All of the formatting prefixes and suffixes on the new routes list are still there (as an example,  at the start of intended bold text).

But neither bold nor underlining are functions anymore. There used to be buttons which could be used to bold or underline text, and they don't exist in this new version of the site.

Italics still exists, but I've never liked and so never used italics.

I suspect that this is an oversight and not intentional?

Interestingly the "center text" function is still there and restoring the site must have stripped that from the text. I just now restored that to the three main Pinnacles areas, the East Side, the High Peaks, and the West Side.

Whoa?!

In the above quote what I typed in the "create text" box doesn't appear in the actual post. I typed a small case b with brackets on either side of it (three characters total). And that was there before I hit "post." It is also still there when I bring up the "create text" box the check on and modify what I typed.

But it does not appear in the post?

Here's what I typed - but with spaces added after the first bracket and before the second:

[ b ]

Weird!


EDIT:

Here's the quote above with three asterisks substituted where I'd typed the bracket-b-bracket:


...as an example, *** at the start of intended bold text).

Well I'd set aside some time to restore the bold and underlining to the New Routes text today.

Looks like I'll have to spend that time sorting stuff sacks and/or downstairs "in" Russia  ;D

OK, so Dennis walked me through how to make it bold (not too different from the old system).

But he's not sure yet why there's no way to do it using a function instead of inserting the code manually for each route. So I'll do it manually... as time permits (Voronezh may fall to a coup).

I noticed that if you use "Arial Black" as a font, it includes bold formatting automatically. I don't know if that is any easier, but could be a way of redoing bold text... That is what I ended up doing for the updates to the Climbing Closures thread.

Someone needs to fork this thread for troubleshooting the bold

but fwiw, sonorapassclimbing.com forum is on the same version and still has the 'bold' option.

Ta-da!

Reformatted and the new formatting saved to a separate document. The list is totally current.
