I'd noticed a couple of other posters mention it but didn't really know what they were talking about until just now: I tried to reply to a poster and copied their incorrect doctype into my reply, but all the forum would allow was:

<xml>
<DOCTYPE>
<html>

(didn't matter whether I used code or quote tags or nothing at all.) Anyone else having trouble posting code?

&lt;!Doctype&gt; issues?

<DOCTYPE>

<DOCTYPE>

Shock

You're right!

/edit

Split because I think this is a really big issue.

&lt;!Doctype&gt; issues?

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
    "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">

<html xml:lang="en"
      xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"
      lang="en">
works on preview. Let's see if it posts.

If your web page is as clever as you can make it, it's probably too clever for you to debug or maintain.

Ahhah, I cracked it!

It's to do with the "Disable HTML" button. For some reason when you DON'T have it ticked, the forum truncates the code. If it IS ticked t comes out fine?

Very odd.

So why has this suddenly started happening, I'm sure it wasn't in the before time?

Could well be to do with the PHPbb update Tony installed the other day :?

@Tony: Does the new update set or reset any profile settings? Eg., use html tags?

cheers,
