    Exclamation Previewing post removes double carriage returns

    Just to let you know, when you preview a new thread (not sure about a new reply -- haven't experimented with that, yet), it removes double carriage returns.

    So, a thread that's formatted like this.

    Eventually looks like the text below, which is exactly the way this text appeared in the box after I clicked "Preview Post":

    Now, let's see about replies.

    I'll just preview this reply and see what happens to it.

    It's probably just a problem with vBulletin or a plug-in, and not really a big deal, unless you write a really long post with lots of paragraphs and then hit preview.

    (Yep, replies are affected, too):

    You know, I noticed that too when posting to bf.c. It must be something with this version. I'll look into it a little further.

    Now I'm not sure.
    Line 1
    Line 2
    (1 CR follows)
    Line 3
    (2 CRs follow)
    Line 4

    Ahh I see. A regular reply is OK. When I choose Go Advanced and Preview it removes the CRs.
    Back to testing on some other sites.

    This appears to be a know problem that people are experiencing.
    No solution yet.

    OK, That didn't take long to figure it out.
    I use a plugin called Realtime Template Compressor which removes spaces so pages can load faster. bf.c uses the same plug in and I can reproduce the problem there. Now it's to get the developer of the plugin to make some changes.

    Edit: In the meantime I'm disabling it.

    Thanks Steven,

    That was really annoying me. I noticed it on a couple other forums and figured it was some sort of bug.
