Is this an error or not? I would guess that it's up to each an everyone to decide.

When you quote something here in threads it looks like this:

Quote
This is a quote.
Nice table.

Is this is how a code looks like.
Code
This is some code.
Nice table.

In UBB.classic there was no nice tables, and it did look like in attachment 1 (only quote shown, but the same principle for code tag).

Now, when you import your data from UBB.classic why doesn't the quote and code tags get the new nice table look of threads?

I do believe that imported quotes and codes should get the new table look.

Still working on this one. Part of this bug I believe is related to this one, in that it's not unencoding the quote tag properly.

This has improved a lot in B2, but some quotes and codes are still showing the classic "view".

The attachment that I listed in the first post is still the same, but many others are now showing as UBB.threads "tables".

Here are some more quotes that still are wrong.

Still trying to figure out why some are being decoded and some not. If you get a chance, can you look at the source of one of the posts like the one where it says "Fair enough, Bill" and post the html that is used for that quote?

I've sent the code to you, and here are pictures on the complete posts both in classic and in threads.
(I had to cut the threads picture a bit to fit the 100k limit, but the important stuff is there)

The problem is still here, at least the "Fair enough, Bill" message (I didn't check more than this one).

Still needs to be fixed.

This error does still exist in B5.

I think that I know see the reason to why this goes wrong in the import, and that is that the code for the post looks to be "wrong". Instead of the normal "code" tags some html code is there. For the "Fair enough, Bill" the code looks like this:
Code
<blockquote>
<font size="1" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">
quote:</font><hr />
<font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">
Fair enough, Bill</font><hr />
</blockquote>
<font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">
 </font>

My guess is that it should look like this, in order to import correct.
Code
[code]Fair enough, Bill[ /code]
(one space inserted on the end tag above in order for it to list correct)

Why there is some html code in the post, I have no idea. I looks OK in classic...

Rick,

The correction for [ RC1. UBB.classic import error 5 ] did also fix this problem!

You can mark this error as FIXED.
