Testing for forum problems

This thread is started to check for some of the problems of the forum so they can be reported properly.
Here is the list of stuff that drives one crazy:
1) Cannot have / * or * / in a post, submit & preview buttons will not do anything

    hmmm, it's showing there is one reply (which I did), but it is invisible.

    Here's one I prepared earlier
    (char) text_var;   /*test comment*/

    interesting, I couldn't post it in the "quick reply" window, but it let me do it in the "Open Full Version" window.

    (char) text_var;   / *test comment* /


    Let's see if quoting your successfully entered text works.
    Nope - Submit did nothing at all....
    So I have now added a space between the / and * chars in YOUR quoted text.
    I suspect that Submit will now work. Yes it did!
    Imagine how new members will struggle with this particular bug!
    They see a piece of code and they want to quote the message in their reply and then cannot submit at all. No message saying why, just a dead submit button...

    What if you do the quote as usual, but then click "Open Full Version" first, and submit from there?

    The "reply" was my own because I tested one of the forbidden words in a reply to myself and the post went from visible to purged. I first replied so I got a new item, then edited it by adding a n t i p o d e a n (without spaces) to it.
    BOOM! Gone when I submitted and I was sent to the start page. Still logged in though, earlier this action required re-login.

    Did that and when I hit the "open full version" link it opened the full version editor without any sign of the quote I just did, just a blank page.....

    I can't quote my own post.


    What if you cut and paste the text from my post above, after you've entered the Full editor?

    (char) text_var;   /*test comment*/


    Strange, this time the quoted text appeared in the full version editor...
    What I did was this:
    - Hit quote on your post
    - In the quickedit window I first removed the whitespace preceding the ending quote marker.
    - Selected and copied the text
    - Then I hit full version and now i am here with the quote in the window without me having to paste....
    Now will try to commit.

    Seems to have worked!
    But how do you tell a newbie about the difference between quick reply and full version?

    Just confirming I couldn't quote your message until I inserted spaces into the quote sequences
