I did a copy (scraped) winnie's comment from 1058 then pasted it into the RTE comment box in 1056 and pressed say.

Mark de LA says
interesting i just did a copy/paste in the RTE from 1035 and it put it in a nice box

Seth says
Wow, ... how did u get a comment dialogue inside the body of a item .... hmmm ... wait don't tell me ... let me figure it out myself

Mark de LA says
too bad i can't delete it from 1035 because it's seth's group

Seth says
oh i get it ... another great unintended consequence of the RTE box

Mark de LA says
that was a nice unintended consequence, i guess

Mark de LA says
great minds think alike

Seth says
anyway it is a .0bug

Mark de LA says
& the links still work !!!

Seth says
yeah .. apparently you can copy paste from any web page and the hyperlinks come across intact ... might be a prob with some of them if the original ones were relative .. would need to find some like that ... or maybe the client browser just sees absoluts .. dont know would need to find both cases

Mark de LA says
doesn't work for the RTE for comments see: 1056 where i copied a comment from 1058 which Winnie inadvertantly put in the wrong place (IMHO)

Seth says
... i would need a step by step of why that might be

Mark de LA says
Notice that it interprets the paste as from tables, you must use tables to create this display.

Seth says
... im not getting it ... where does it hurt?

Mark de LA says
just explaining to myself why the copy generated a table in the RTE & it came out in a box - really is nice - DOESN't HURT

Seth says
well actually i dont know why ... u must have copied the boarder too ... it depends on where in the page you start the copy

Mark de LA says
I copied the suthor thru the date/time as it shows all in one copy see 1075

Mark de LA says
If it's not a table what is it - it has pull handles on it & it's not a picture is it ?

Seth says
This is tagged a sever bug becuuse going to somewhere and ending up somewhere else is very confusing.

To summarize what the bug that is happening here:   if you go to a permalink and there is nothing there, (it has been deleted or marked private to you), then the navigation logic takes over and trys to skip to the next possible item that you can view.  This works when you are going earlier\later in a room, but not if you are trying to get to a specific item.   In that case you must end up on an empty room with perhaps some kind of explanation.
