Well, I don't know what the fuck is going on.  I have 4 interview articles edited and ready to post, but the first one I loaded, formatted, added pics and links, and saved... Nothing.  Did it again.  Nothing.

So WTF, I don't know.  A lot of damned work getting it to this point.

Hang on, I'll check the database.

There's a record in the db for your article, but the body of it isn't there. 

I upgraded the site recently and one of the changes was a different editor for the articles.  Try this if you would:  rather than click "Add HTML" click the "Add BBC" option instead.  Then past in your article and save it.  Don't worry about adding images yet, just save the text and see if that works.

You'll have to add a new article - don't think you can edit the one you started and change it to BBC.  But give that a shot and let me know.

BBC added... some of it.  Weirdly formatted, and clipped off.

Maybe I'll just post them in the draft forum or something.

Is it a Word document?  The thing is, the forum posts are the same as a BBC article.  Email me one if you want and I'll give it a go.  There must be some embedded characters that the HTML and BBC interpreted poorly.

If it's a Word document you might try "saving as" html and try pasting that into the HTML article.

Hey, a little trial and error here and there, once it's figured out ... BAM!

I just pasted that into the html version.  It seems ok, you might try adding a pic now and see what happens.

Tried a couple things: adding back the intro text, bolding the initials, adding a pic.

Saved it.  Didn't work.

I gots to roll.

I added it with the into you provided, it's still ok.  I'll bold the initials.

OK, also added an image.  If you want to put an image there or in another place just change the url and cut/paste the line wherever you want it.

Finally read it, good article, looking forward to the rest of it.  There's a young man who knew what he wanted and worked to get it.  I had no clue at that age.  Not to imply there's much more of a clue now.

Let me know about what pics you want in there and we'll slap it on the front page, feature article.  For now though it can be accessed through the MGS Content links, front page left.
