      Well, I been thinking. There have been lots and lots of posts about not being able to post something that was copied from an article since we started JPR 3.0. I have seen a bunch of ‘reasons’ that this problem exists, but I didn’t buy any of them. I have actually heard the notion that some article source code makes it impossible to copy/paste but after a bit of head banging, I don’t think that even if they tried such a thing that I couldn’t figure out a way to get rid of such a thing.

      It all boils down to formatting. And the thing that sets formats are known as embedded format commands. When you type something in Microsoft Word, the text you type in goes into a file that has literally hundreds of hidden format codes mixed in that makes the text you type come out the way you want to see it. Titles are handled far differently than body text and the code used to make a table is huge.

      So, you might ask, who cares?

      Gutenberg cares, and that means you care. We want a site that is as bullet proof as possible and in that vein we have the Gutenberg editor. The editor is basically mandatory on sites using WordPress 5.0 or greater and all other editors will be phased out by attrition and loss of support. We have already had two updates to 5.0.1 and 5.0.2. Since we made the commitment to only use things called plugins and not modify the core code, these updates are seamless. That is what happened to JPR 2.0. Extensive coding brought down the house when WordPress and PhP updated and the hacks into the core program failed.

      So, we are stuck to some degree with Gutenberg. Now, how does that make it so you can’t post copied content from another site’s article? Formatting codes. If Gutenberg can’t format the post, it won’t post it. Bingo.

      If the idea that some sites place codes in to prevent copy/paste are actually true, they serve the same function as formatting. There isn’t any other way to make the copy fail to be able to post. So, we just kill the formatting and reformat with our Gutenberg. And it WORKS boys and girls. You can do it without any hoops or struggles as well. I tried it with an article that Peace Patriot wanted to post in General Discussion. I thought to myself, I said “self, this isn’t the JPR we wanted. Fix it.”

      I tried the direct approach and it failed to post just like everyone says is happening all over the place. I got pissed. I tried it again and it just stared back. And that was the last straw. Here is how you defeat all of that in one easy fell swoop.

      First of all you have to have the complete Gutenberg editor available. When you first open it you may get this:

      but you want this:

      You get the second one buy clicking the funny box like icon just left of the smiley. On the second row is magic. The eraser. Let your cursor hoover over it and it says “Clear Formatting”. So, I went to Moon of Alabama to this article that Peace wanted to post on:

      https://www.moonofalabama.org/2018/12/the-strange-mind-of-christopher-nigel-donnelly.html#more

      From the article I copied the first four para and pasted them into the text body area. And then I tried to post it. And it flat refused to post.

      I then highlighted everything that I had copied in and clicked the eraser and killed all formatting from the article. I then (what the hell) set the highlighted article text to bold, changed its color to black and indented it twice which is how I like to show information from outside sources in my posts. And viola!! I got this:

      The British government financed Integrity Initiative is tasked with spreading anti-Russian propaganda and thereby with influencing the public, military and governments of a number of countries. What follows is an contextual analysis of the third batch of the Initiative’s internal papers which were dumped by an anonymous yesterday.

      Christopher Nigel Donnelly (CND) is the co-director of The Institute for Statecraft and founder of its offshoot Integrity Initiative. The Initiative claims to “Defend Democracy Against Disinformation”.

      The Integrity Initiative does this by planting disinformation about alleged Russian influence through journalists ‘clusters’ throughout Europe and the United States.

      Both, the Institute as well as the Initiative, claim to be independent Non-Government Organizations. Both are financed by the British government, NATO and other state donors.

      Among the documents lifted by some anonymous person from the servers of the Institute we find several papers about Donnelly as well as some memos written by him. They show a russophobe mind with a lack of realistic strategic thought.

      Since I didn’t kill the links by removing the formatting code, I then edited the links to open in a new tab. I haven’t done that here because I’m lazy and it’s late.

      One word of caution: Titles are REALLY formatted objects. Be sure to use the eraser on the titles especially if you copy it into the editor here on JPR like you have to for Latest Breaking. I guarantee it’ll get you big timeif you don’t occasionally.

      So, set up Gutenberg to show both lines of tools. Highlight the copied content and remove all formatting. Then do whatever you normally do and it should post just fine.

      I happened to have open Maurice Ashley’s Wikipedia bio at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maurice_Ashley  so let me see if this works:

      Maurice Ashley (born March 6, 1966) is a Jamaican-American chess grandmaster, author, commentator, app designer, puzzle inventor, and motivational speaker.[1][2] In 1999 he earned the grandmaster title,[3] making him the first black person to attain the title of grandmaster.[4]

      Ashley is well known as a commentator for high-profile chess events.[5] He also spent many years teaching chess.[6][7] On April 13, 2016, Ashley was inducted into the US Chess Hall of Fame.

      ETA: OK, it did work.  I cut and pasted those two paragraphs from Wikipedia into a .txt document in Notepad.  My experience has been that Notepad obliterates formatting even when I want the formatting kept.  (For example, in this case, the first occurrence of Ashley’s name was boldfaced in the original, but that vanished.)  Then I cut and pasted the Notepad text into my post.

      I’ve gotten into the habit of using Notepad or some other text editor to compose every long post (and mine tend to be long).  There’s less danger of losing a lot of work; even aside from the threat of the now-dead Captcha, I’ve occasionally managed to erase my own text partway through posting.  If I’m using Notepad anyway, then this method doesn’t require any extra work.

      I don’t like the software turning the whole quotation into italics, though.  In this edit I’m highlighting the excerpt and italicizing it, to see if I can fool the software with a bit of reverse psychology.

      On second edit: Damn, the reverse psychology didn’t work.  The software sticks to its guns and italicizes the excerpt even when I pretend I want it to.  Is there a workaround for that?

        However, I wanted something they could use without doing anything outside of the text editor here in JPR. My solution is one simple highlight and click the eraser. Done and over with. No outside text editors or anything else.

        Highlighting the quote and see if the editor shows italics as being on for the highlighted text. If so, just click the italics button and it should turn off the italics.

        I see the two media editor bars…. but not the “ADD MEDIA” and “YOUTUBE” tabs above them as shown in your examples.

        What am I missing?

          I just made an OP with excerpted text: https://jackpineradicals.com/boards/topic/cory-booker-is-building-a-2020-campaign-thats-just-like-him-vegan-hyperactive-and-unapologetically-unconventional/

          This time, instead of going through Notepad, I tried your Clear Formatting path.  It was the same result.  I had no trouble posting the excerpt — which, let me note, is the important part.  The excerpt showed up on my screen as Roman, and when I highlighted it the italics icon was not on, but it posted in italics.  I edited to italicize Bernie’s name in the excerpt to see if it would post as non-italic, and thus be a way to emphasize something — no, still all italics.  Then I highlighted the whole excerpt and selected italics.  It now appeared as italics on my screen but there was no difference in the post, where the excerpt was italicized (i.e., reverse psychology failed again).

          I guess I’ll have to live with remorselessly italicized excerpts.

          ETA: I forgot that the Reply button had moved.  This was supposed to be a reply to the “You could try” post by @sffh.

      …. that whereas your example of the text editing has a button for “media” and YouTube”, I only see something that is “Paragraph” which only changes heading formats.

      Why the heck don’t I see how to bring in Media or YouTube? I see this regardless of using browser Safari or Opera on my Macintosh.

          I have found the problem with not liking some post posting.

          WordPress has a dirty word checker built in. In the third paragraph of what Iwas wanting to post was the proper name for the weed word.

          Somebody really needs to disable it.

          <hr />

          Not Notepad, not the Paste as Text, not the Clear Formatting.
          The only thing I have not done is retype it in. Three paragraphs is way too much typing for a simple post.
          Even trying to follow the instructions here. A simple Copy & Paste should be enough.

          The source:

            I’ve noticed the same thing.  I was trying to post that I was dancing around without clothes for winter solsitice and used the four letter n-word for nekked.  It blocked my reply.

              Hiya Jan, nice to see you here.

              Now tell me another little story. One that’s funny. I’m needing a little humor right now.

                  You danced around nude for the winter solstice too?

                  nude nude nude nude nude nude

                  I have no idea why you can’t post any word you want to. I use the exact same editor and have the exact same restrictions as anyone else on this site.

                  nude nude nude nude nude.

                  Seriously, I have tried over and over to find any kind of restrictions on word usage and can’t find a thing. I seem to be able to use any word I care to, and everyone else should be able to as well. THERE IS NO MAGIC ADMIN EDITOR OR WORD USAGE RESTRICTION THAT ISN’T THE EXACT SAME ONE EVERY MEMBER HAS.

                  Period.

          There may be more to this than what I’ve read and done so far. Just tell me the address of the article or whatever and what part you wanted to post.

          I’ll go to work on it.

          You don’t have the add media and youtube buttons on top?

          I mean I hate to say this  but I’ve NEVER used either one either here or on 2.0, but they should nonetheless be there. If you can, take a screenshot and come back here and post it so I can see what you are getting in your browser.

          They should be there whether or not you ever use the things. In fact they’re pretty useless if you learn how to use the editor. But I want to see that you don’t have them so I can go look at why the hell that is happening.

        It should recognize links to things like media and youtube addresses directly without any markup required. It may require you to give the direct address of the media. Here is an example. All I’m gonna do is copy and paste the pictures direct address and the url of some youtube video.

        Arrrrgh!!! EDIT: this is so messed up even I don’t know what I was trying to say.

        So, here I went to the googles and asked for images of the Trumpster. Found one that suits my mood this morning. clicked on the image to see it and then right clicked the image and copied the image. Now I gonna paste it below:

        Image result for donald trump

        Now I gonna do it again to make sure my edit actually tells you what the f&%k I actually did.

        Image result for donald trump

        Shit that’s scary. How about a little smaller injection of vitriol this morning? I gonna click on the image after I paste it one more time below, and I’m going to shrink the shit outta it using the corner drags:

        Image result for donald trump

        Gadzooks. No matter how small I make the piece of shit, it still scary.

        EDIT: it would be nice if I could actually do what I said I was gonna do.

        Then I found this little gem in youtube, and all I am going to do is coly it’s url here:

        Then I gonna post.

      Just posting my own content.  Will try clearing formatting and some other tricks.  Damn though, why do these internet authorities, or wordpress gurus have to complicate stuff?

      Title.  Body.  Post.  Boom.  Argh.  You mean I’m going to have to start applying effort?  Okay… but if we end up with a hundred gnome posts in one thread it’s because I tried to post or reply a bunch of times and nothing went through.  Maybe it will appear.  Dont know.

      Frankly, I blame SFFH, he is probably trying to apply his silly science logic to this stuff.  Everyone knows, science doesnt work on the internet.

        They make it ‘different’. I’m not too sure about more complicated. It really depends on what you use it for. Here we only use a really small amount of the capabilities of any text editor. And we expect to be able to insert just about anything we want to in it and it’s supposed to be able to read our minds and do what we HOPE it will do instead of what we told it to do.

        Think of it this way.

        How long has it been since you were actually able to insert images into a discussion board post? That capability certainly wasn’t there when discussion boards first started. THey had really crude minimal editors and you couldn’t do jack with them. People wanted more and more control over what they could bring to the discussion, and this is how you get it.

        WordPress and Gutenberg are only doing what the vast majority of users worldwide want them to do. We just gotta get with it.

      Found the problem. The dirty word checker built into WordPress does not like the weed word in the 3rd paragraph.

      <hr />

      In a stunning rebuke of the 46th best president in American history, the United States’ northern neighbour shattered numerous crowdsourcing records today, when it raised billions and billions and billions of dollars to plant and maintain a living barrier between themselves and the adjacent idiocracy.

      “We’d heard that a bunch of people down in the You-Ess-of-Eh had decided to empty their wallets out for a wall that won’t block anything other than half of all escape routes, when their dirty bomb of a president melts through his retaining barrier,” explains the man who started the campaign, Tom Candy, of Fewmarket, Ontario.

        shitshow

        marijuana

        heroin

        cocaine

        EDIT: that didn’t cause me any grief. SO here is the para;

        “So naturally our first thought was: how can we best deal with this shitshow as it unfolds directly beside us, and add a little ever-greenery to a world which, it has to be said, is looking a little bleak right now? The answer was, of course, legalizing marijuana. But with that already having been done, our next thought was: let’s plant a privacy hedge.”

        I cheated. did the copy, clicked the clipboard icon with a capital T on it to open a block copy of text only, pasted and clicked delete formatting while highlighted. Then the usual black, bold and two indents. One extra click to set up a firewall against this formatting conflict.

        You won’t believe the rash of shit that both WordPress and Gutenberg are getting on this.

            There are a lot of people who are NOT tech savvy nor want to jump through a ton of hoops to post. Even though I have done a lot of tech stuffs, I personally do not wish to spend the time moving things around in order to post something. Not that I posted a lot but was planning to change my ways this New Year. Now am a little put off. I mean, doesn’t anyone think this is going to deter members?

            We (admins) have no control over how the editor works that you don’t have. Whoever started the myth that admins have super power over the Gutenberg editor should get shot. It isn’t true. Secondly @deadpool and I have been extremely diligent on making sure that no such censorship be allowed on JPR.

            That is a cold hard fact. Word usage censorship is absolutely forbidden. We have been going over the entire administrative panel looking for anything that would produce some form of word censorship and make sure that nothing interferes with the ability of our members to type whatever shitshow they want to. I have to go do something real quick and will finish this shortly. It is important and these crazy notions have got to be gotten rid of. So, excuse me for a sec and I’ll get right back.

            O-K I’m back. Sorry about that.

            I am truly sorry you are having what appear to be insurmountable and totally aggravating problems with copy/paste editing. Claims of some internal word usage censorship are unwarranted and not true. Claims that admins have magic editors are not true. We have enough trouble with just one, thank you anyway. I am trying my best to show how to do so with the least amount of razzle dazzle and complexity that I can. So far I have had zero problems with posting external copied material after spending about ten hours going over the inner workings of the Gutenberg editor and the literal hundreds of issues brought up by site owner/admins worldwide on it.

            You can see above where I was able to post all four paras of your article without ever leaving the editor once I copied the paragraphs into my clipboard. And there was zero change in wordage. shitfest is just fine with me. Marijuana is just fine with me. I don’t give a flying fuck what words someone uses.

            There are two magic bullets in Gutenberg, the eraser and the text paste clipboard. THe absolute worst case scenario is having to first clear the formatting and then set as text only. Two clicks. Once on the eraser and once again on the text only clipboard once the material has been inserted and is still highlighted. From there I can do whatever I want to with it. Make it bold. Make it purple. Make it italics. Put a line thru it. Indent it. Make it bigger. Whatever.

            This issue is not going to go away. The block editor is here to stay. Just like global warming. We either learn how to use it or sometime in the near future we will have a site that crashes just because of its text editor. Just like JPR version 2.0 started crashing because of internal core code changes that were never resolved when they could be in the early stages. If you still can’t post material from a source outside of JPR, just call me or that dreaded Deadpool to it and we’ll help get things sorted out.

              from under the text box, then in the text box, my replies will not post.  If I only write in the title box, I have to select an emoji from under the text box, then put it in the text box, to make my reply post.

              Why does putting in a emoji from under the text box, in the text box allow for the title to post?  Does selecting an emoji under the formatted box mean that formatting has changed to allow its addition?

              I hope this emoji thing does not take up too much of your time.  Fell free to not reply to this :good: and continue working on major problems.  Thank you for your work. :yes:

          Because I would like to believe it is a rash, if only so I can believe this wonderful forum will not ebb away on waves of OP that never got through the hamsters.

            How about a small but getting bigger revolt?

            Not good enough?

            How about a whole segment funding a permanent basic text editor plug in?

            They gonna lose in the end of course. It isn’t how things work. The concept that Gutenberg and other block editors are based on is just too good. It beats typical editors hands down on ability and speed and reduced storage and everything. Its capabilities as a full text editor are pretty amazing. Remember, we only have what would be called a toy editor in the forums. The full blown Gutenberg editor is VERY comprehensive. And it is designed specifically for todays necessary website page requirements. Everything is done in blocks that are then placed where needed on a web page.

      a different article that the one about the Louisiana cop, and it looked ok, i clicked on Submit, the hamsters seemingly approved…. and then NOTHING.  Spoiler alert:   I was just now trying to post a NYT article about how Trumpolini has fired Mattis.

      I feel much better since I gave up hope.

      Testing if I can post the name Philip K. Xxxx. I mentioned him in another thread and I could only get my post through when I used his initials, PKD.

      Edit: This post only went through when I substituted “Xxxx” for his name. His last name rhymes with “Rick”.

        Philip K. Dick Let’s see what happens to it.

        It posted right off the bat.

        I’m getting really confused. NONE of the word usage problem should exist.

        Great author.

        OK, I cannot use the last name of the author of The Man in the High Castle. So the sailor language filter is still alive and well. At least I can reply to replies again after an “unacceptable” reply was rejected without having to erase the memory of the original reply first.

        If that makes any sense. What does make any sense?

      I try posting in GD and nothing …I post the exact same thing in the same way in latest and bingo ..it posts …however it does show the format codes.

      IMO we may be asking a bit too much from ordinary internet denizens. If it ain’t simple we will lose activity. We’re already losing active members.

      If there are to be instructions IMO they need to be force fed to all …maybe even a (g0d forbid) popup with the instructions.

        How did you bring the link in? I have had many issues, but not this one.

        Did you copy and paste the link from within the body of the text, or was it something you copied from the url and brought in?

         

        Hell, no... I'm not giving up...

      It didn’t like n*d3 spelled correctly

      Also Richard’s nick name and common name for a bowel movement.

      computer in the sense that I use one at home and one at work.  I’m probably on one or the other up to 12 hours a day.  HOWEVER, I don’t know anything about codes or editors and never heard of Gutenberg except in World History.  All this technical talk about this editor being better than that editor is meaningless to me.  If this isn’t fixed JPR will lose me.   I am tired of cutting and pasting and having nothing show up. I click on the little box to the left of the smiley face and nothing.    This really frustrates and saddens me.   Thanks.

      I have been able to post all of it (Deepfakes and Political Manipulation) except one sentence. I just don’t have it in me to go any further. Formatting is not the issue nor are embedded swear words as far as I can see. If an admin who has my email address wants to contact me I will send back the sentence…
