Hi TalkTalk web designers.

 

 Just tried to centre align this text using the align centre button above.

 

Feeling rejected.

Hi @StephenF

 

The HTML checker still rejects the use of the centre align button. Is a fix included in the next batch?

Strange, just tested and didnt see the error, maybe its permissions let me take a look.

 

EDIT: Permissions are ok, what browser is this happening in, and is it on every post?

This line was centred also.

hey, 

 

Thanks for this, I've not been able to replicate but its clearly an error. All users have the ability to add simple HTML to their posts and all items in the editor should be acceptable.

 

 

I've raised a case with our platform vendors to investigate further. 


Thanks

Hi @StephenF

 

The HTML5 code produced by your post and that produced for mine by the editor icons, above, is identical.

 

The checker appears HTML5 compliant (it rejects the HTML 4.01 center command for example) so although the error message says the code is not valid I would say the generated code is valid and it's not being allowed for another reason, like the level of permissions, such as you suggested.

Looks like this could be a bug as just had confirmation this should be possible, will keep you posted.

Hey @Gondola,

 

Platform vendor have confirmed this is a defect and will be investigated further to find a fix, however, i dont have a timescale, however, i do have a workaround, if you use the html tab you can use the following code which should be valid.

 

<center>Some text here</center>

 

Let me know if this doesn't work for you.
