    So I've spent a few hours on my RT, just reworking the whole thing and adding to it.

    Well I was going to section it off into Spoilers. But its multiplying the spoilers I'm trying to use, and also breaking old ones? I'm so lost.

    On top of that my spacing is getting trippled to even quadrippled when I should only have one enter press. I even go back and delete them, only to find they've returned or moved somewhere else on my RT. Its just frustrating..

    I have had the same problem when working on mine.

    It has something to do with residual formatting that stays invisible.

    As a quick fix, you can cut and paste the troublesome section to a word file, and reformat the text there, removing any BBC code.

    Delete the troublesome section from your RT, then cut and paste the text back into it from the word file, and reformat however.

    It worked fine when I redid mine

    It's also a note to use the BBcode editor instead of the rich text editor, I always have issues with it.
    You can change it with clicking the button on the top right of the text box.

    If you use the BBcode editor and close off each piece of code it should work. :)

    If it persists, post the code here and I'm sure I - and someone else can help!

    BB code editor yeah :D So it's basically like just in code, no buttons to press.
    The default one you see is the Rich Text Editor. You can see a little uhh... wrench in a page icon, that changes it.

    For some reason the Rich Text / Default one doesn't handle code too well. I'm not sure how it works but I had the same problem as you, until I checked code with the other editor. ^^

    I havent had a lot of time yet, a little late on getting a response in here. But Im still working on fixing up my thread, if its still broken after putting all the text into word and copying from word. Then I will post in here again.

    Hopefully I get a chance this weekend if it doesnt happen today or tomorrow.

    I finally buckled down and tried fixing my RT today. I have Found a Potential answer to why the spoilers broke, and multiplied and even created chaos. lol

    Do not color your Spoiler Text. (Spoiler=Name) should not be colored the same color as the line after or half your spoiler text included within the spoiler. It will break it into two where the same color ends. =P let me show you.

    I'm just going to put a few random lines
    Don't mind me you know this is only an example ;)

    I like this forum :D

    Yeah, you can't colour the actual spoiler. xD As much as it would be awesome!
    I always try to work with just be sure to make edits inside of the code you're using. Nice work! <3 It's good to know :D
