[resolved] Problems with inserting HTML in page (3 posts)

    I have posted elsewhere about problems with my admin panel not displaying properly, no resolution yet, so I'm struggling (with the default theme) to insert some HTML in a Page. Using Firefox, the HTML editor is called and I paste the HTML code in place and hit Update. There is a line of typing on the Page before I try to insert the code and so the code reads:

    This is a recursive market test!!
    <!-- Begin Ilovepolls.com Html Code -->
    <script src="http://www.ilovepolls.com/showpoll.php?id=274" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <!-- End Ilovepolls.com Html Code -->

    However what is stored is:

    This is a recursive market test!!
    <!-- Begin Ilovepolls.com Html Code --> <script type="text/javascript" /> <!-- End Ilovepolls.com Html Code -->

    Why is the reference being deleted? Any ideas out there?

    Thanks

    Turn off that WYSIWYG thing if you're going to paste in code that's supposed to actually do something! :-)

    Users -> Your Profile uncheck the bottommost box about the visual rich editor.

    Thanks for the advice. In the end I went and tried it in Internet Explorer to see if it was the browser. It was the same process, the Editor of IE was called up, and I then cut and pasted from Notepad into it. Bingo. (I WANT to us non-MS products but sometimes they just don't seem to do the business!)

    At least I've found out that this problem was to do with Firefox. I'd tell them, but "all the lights on, but no-one's home"!

    Thanks again.
