Hey all.

Wondering if someone can help me out.  I THINK this is a problem with GP and I'm goig to have to write a support ticket, but wanted to give it a shot on here...

My cotent boxes are not UPDATING properly when I paste new code in.  Here's what happens:

I click the Edit this button

I click the  button, to enter code

I paste from my notepad...then save.

When I go BACK to the same code after refreshing the page...about 75% of my code is gone!

Now, this is code that I've had on my site for over a year, so it's not the code.  This only started happening 1-2 days ago.

Any suggestions?

I am having the same problem.  I use a "Who's on vent?" feature that uses HTML and it hasn't been working since I updated the graphics on our site.  This is a very frustrating problem.  Any help would be appreciated.

You are correct, this is a GP bug. There was a thread started in the General forum regarding this.

I have a working box on my site that I can not duplicate anymore because it will not save the script (as long as I don't edit and save it, it continues to work). It seems to be only affecting containers using custom HTML.

This is strange, however, because it started only a few days ago.  I update the content to this html box frequently, and this is the first time I've ever had a problem with it.

I forsee major problems when others try to update their html content containers in the near future.

Yeah, the freeform html boxes seem to no longer be saving script, so if you use javascript to rotate images, show Vent/TS status, etc. you cannot change the code in existing boxes or create new ones.  I've submitted 2 tickets already.  Aaron is usually good at getting back to us so i'm wondering if he's out of town or something.
