Am a user, not a programmer. So only understand the symptoms, not the causes. Did a search of this bug forum, to see if already reported, but can't understand this stuff.
Between ~Sep. 2010 and ~Jan. 2011, KompoZer introduced a profound bug.
Making even the SMALLEST change to a web page (even just one word in the normal body of text) and saving it ruins how that page displays. Everything looks fine while inside of KompoZer, but bad when viewed with Mozilla Firefox 3.6.15 (or for all I know, other browsers too).
Here are before and after examples:
- Updated using a text editor... www.desk.net.nz/bricks/
- Updated using KompoZer... www.desk.net.nz/brickskompozer/
(Will only keep the bad KompoZer-edited version on that site for a couple more months.)
Here is what some wizard in the local computer club told me:
"After a quick diff of those two files it appears that the only real difference is that the DIV with id of "header image" is wrapped around the entire body of the page rather than just having the closing tag immediately after." I have got =no= idea what he is talking about there.
Am running KompoZer 0.8b1 (20090502) on Ubuntu LINUX 10.4.2 on two computers (laptop and desktop). I use Synaptic Package Manager every day to update my system and all applications. Don't know which "repository" the Kompozer program is kept, but if you've =already= fixed this bug, someone has to update the relevant repository.
This has been a =great= program for over a year for me. THANK YOU for making it so good. I have been disappointed with all the other programs I see for LINUX. But this new bug makes KompoZer useless. I will have to uninstall it and go to something else, if it can't be fixed.
Thank you. Carl Turney, Christchurch, New Zealand c (dot) turney (at) orcon (dot) net (dot) nz
