Feedback:
I found something that could be a bug or wrong in 7.7.5
I have added and enabled a couple boards so that they are in the portal page.
One sponsor had posted a promo with a rather large image so
I enabled News Body Image (News Block)

The text changed from (this is the actual post)

That is called a "News Block." It can be enabled/disabled from within Control Panel > Portal > News Body Image (News Block). It is the modern news format on portals and blogs. With the setting disabled, the portal is displayed as classic format.

News Body Image (News Block)
When enabled, this will search the news item until it finds the first image. If that image is larger than 240x240, it will display it as a "News Block" with the post text to the right of it. Text is truncated to 400 characters. All line breaks and HTML are stripped. If no image is found, the news item is displayed normally.

It was introduced in UBB.threads 7.7.2 (2019-07-02)

Thanks for the info but what about the text that is not presented right?
That is what I reported

Maybe I should open a bug thread for that one should I?

This is not a bug.

You have "News Block" enabled. If you do not want news blocks, disable them. If you want to continue using news blocks, the reader can click "Read More" on the news block to read more about that news item.

when doing that the characters & and " changed in the text and turned into unreadable & a m p and & q b i t ; i n - s t o c k & q u i t ;
this is what I reported.

Ok, I understand now. Thank you laugh

I will move this version 7.7.2 bug report out of the 7.7.5 changelog, and in to its own thread.

EIther disable News Blocks, which will fix the html-encoded characters right now. OR As an admin account, change the post on your site to "HTML and UBBCode" which should be a quick fix for right now. I'm not sure if you can do this if the post was created by a non-admin account. but...

I have a simple code update for you to do on your portal template to fix it. But I am on mobile at the moment, and wont be near a desktop for another few more hours, as it is 3:30 AM Pacific time where I'm at right now.

Again, thank you.

I have moved this thread to its own topic, and will post a simple fix for you by the end of today 10/31 -- Halloween night activities pending onoes

the fix is simple and easy to implement, but i need to test all scenarios before posting here.
