Interesting. It appears that the forum software automatically converts a double space after a period to a single space.

After the original version of this sentence is 1 space. Continuation.

After the original version of this sentence is 2 spaces. Continuation.

After the original version of this sentence is 3 spaces. Continuation.

And for all 3 test sentences above, there was conversion to a single space...

The forum software isn't collapsing the spaces. They are still there as shown below. Your browser is doing it, following the behavior prescribed by HTML rules. (Cf. Why don't space characters show on Web pages?.) If you need to have multiple spaces preserved, use a "code" block, as I've done below with text quoted from your post:

Code: Select all

After the original version of this sentence is 1 space.  Continuation. [ actually there are 2 spaces ]
After the original version of this sentence is 2 spaces.  Continuation.
After the original version of this sentence is 3 spaces.   Continuation.

Thanks for providing a clear explanation.

There's just one minor point - Outputting code or fixed width data is from the forum FAQ, located at the top right corner, to the right of the Forum Policy.
To some, the glass is half full. To others, the glass is half empty. To an engineer, it's twice the size it needs to be.

If you hover your mouse over each code it will explain what it does and how.

Code: Select all

[list]
[*]First bullet
[*]Second bullet
[*]Third bullet
[/list]

Produces the following:
  • First bullet
  • Second bullet
  • Third bullet
Want it numbered, use list=1
  1. First bullet
  2. Second bullet
  3. Third bullet
Want it to use alpha characters, use list=a
  1. First bullet
  2. Second bullet
  3. Third bullet
Using list=i
  1. First bullet
  2. Second bullet
  3. Third bullet
Lawyers might like:
  1. First bullet
    1. First bullet
      1. First bullet
      2. Second bullet
      3. Third bullet
    2. Second bullet
    3. Third bullet
  2. Second bullet
  3. Third bullet

Click Select all on my post and then copy the code and give it a try. Or click Quote on my post and you can see the structure that I used.

What Movie Have You Recently Watched? is showing spoilers in comments. Here's how to do it correctly.

The forum post style alternates between 2 background colors. To do a proper spoiler alert, set the text color equal to the background color. When you select the text, the text color will be inverted and the text will appear.

The first background color is #ECF3F7, the second background color is #E1EBF2. Use the "Font color" button in the post editing toolbar (2nd from right) to modify the colors.

For example:

Code: Select all

[color=#ECF3F7]Spoiler text background 1.[/color]

will appear as: Spoiler text background 1. <--- select this text to view. This post is background 2, note how the text is slightly visible.

Code: Select all

[color=#E1EBF2]Spoiler text background 2.[/color]

will appear as: Spoiler text background 2. <--- select this text to view. <--- This post is background 2, no text can be seen. Use this one here.

The post is background color 1. No text can be seen unless it's selected.

Code: Select all

[color=#ECF3F7]Spoiler text background 1.[/color]

will appear as: Spoiler text background 1. <--- select this text to view.
