Ooooh OK! I'll give that a go. Thanks as always, Joey, especially for the prompt reply! And when an opportunity exists (haha), probably would be helpful to members to update the Site Help info. Again, thank you. ; )

Ugh. OK I'm officially giving up on trying to add page breaks. I didn't realize it had to be in the raw HTML, which is like finding a needle in a haystack. But I managed to do it on my Dragon Born Loser blog and, well, it just added </p> to my blog over and over LOL. I don't know whether that has anything to do with the fact that that lame security measure of retyping the words is glitchy so by the time I'm done editing a blog, it won't let me type the words, so I hit publish anyway then it gives me a warning message that I need to type the words, then when I do it doesn't save the edits I'd made before! If I had any hair left I tear it out haha. Anyway thanks, Joey. It was worth a shot but readers are going to have to suffer through my interminably long phlogs/blogs indefinitely. : (
You "shouldn't" have to edit the Raw HTML if you're using the Rich Text Editor. The editor typically puts the </p> tag at the end of [PageBreak] for you. But I've noticed that sometimes if I do something "weird" when typing, that gets messed up and the editor puts extra HTML tags between the [PageBreak] token and the ending p tag which currently doesn't active the page break facility. The problem that I had to solve is when the web site splits up the blog post at the [PageBreak] token, it loses the ending p tag. So, I just included the ending p tag in the token and just add the ending p tag to each part. It's a finicky solution, but I had to fix the YouTube videos sporadically not displaying (I know! what does that have to do with it. But it did.). What post are you trying to do it on and I can take a look when I get a chance.
When you're in a blog and choose "edit this post" does it automatically use rich text or do you have to choose advanced editor instead? Either way I don't think I've had any success whether typing the p tag in the blog or in HTML (it doesn't seem to appear in the latter otherwise, unless it's broken up by other coding. Anyway I've been trying in the Dragon Born Loser blog before trying in the Long Live the King blog, but note that one reason I'm giving up is the more I edit my blogs, the more they glitch such as photos or entire sections getting rearranged; I noticed, for instance, in the Dragon blog that one photo is starting to load funny, and I can't retrieve the original. But that's beside he point LOL. Well, thanks as always for your diligence and hard work.
I just cleaned up the Dragon post. The Rich Text Editor that we use seems finicky. I think if you drag things and move things around in it, it ads a lot of unnecessary HTML markup which breaks the PageBreak token. Right now, my only advice would be to learn a little HTML (you could easily get away with using the header (h1, h2, h3, h4) and p tags and edit the raw html. In the Rich Text Editor tool bar, there's an icon that says, "HTML". Click on that and a new window will open up, allowing you to edit the raw HTML markup. Let me know if can help, I'll do my best.
Wow looks better than ever, Joey. I can't thank you enough. Yeah when I create my phlogs, text and photos necessarily move around even if only adding text here and there. I figured that's why they get glitchy after a few drafts. BTW what do I do with header tags (add after each heading)? I did try to use the Rich Text Editor for the page breaks but it didn't take for some reason. Maybe I was doing it wrong? Anyway, I'll try to be more conscious of that in the future, though maybe I'll just try to post more often instead of posting longer blogs. Again, your efforts are always appreciated (I hope for your sake -- and ours -- that they're paying you well!!).
No problem. Glad I could help.
The header tags are really for article and section titles when you're writing a post. The site will automatically put <h1 /> tags around the title of the article, but if you have sections within your article, you should use <h2 /> tags around those to indicate a section title. <p /> tags are used to signify a paragraph. There are many other HTML tags that you can use to organize a post that will be styled like the rest of the site. I'll create an HTML guide to go by to help out.
The digital mag is one giant *** bug.
We are working hard to produce a better digital edition experience.
I'm wanting to capitalize the "s" in my username. So I go to Settings--->Profile Information and edit my username in the Name field. But when I click "Save" the page tries to load for a very long time and then I get this message:
The proxy server did not receive a timely response from the upstream server.

I don't know how to "fix" that, but I was able to successfully update your user name. Is that sufficient?
Definitely! Thanks Joey. You're as fast as a ninja man haha.
Don't tell anyone.
So man, whats up with the review archive? The legacy platform archive is fine, but the current gen reviews never load. Ive been Coming back the whole week, but its never up. I hope its fixed soon, I enjoy looking around the archives.
I have no idea what's wrong with that. We've logged it as a bug though. Thanks for the heads up.
