Block Quote and Preformatted text strange behavior


#1

Maybe I’m missing a key ingredient about how to post code and results.
all three delete any text between these characters <> text deleted libcaja-extension

just text here:
[email protected]:~$ apt-cache depends caja | grep Breaks
Breaks:
Breaks: mate-session-manager

preformatted:

  [email protected]:~$ apt-cache depends caja | grep Breaks
  Breaks: <libcaja-extension>
  Breaks: mate-session-manager

block:

[email protected]:~$ apt-cache depends caja | grep Breaks
Breaks:
Breaks: mate-session-manager


Code Text Formatting
#2

It works, I just edited your original post to show the preformatted text, which needed an extra line between the two sections.

Should be:

My example code:

    line 1
    <line 2>
    line 3

Instead of:

My example code:
    line 1
    <line 2>
    line 3

<> tags are reserved, like <strike>. So the behaviour is correct, just an extra return is needed for it to display. :slight_smile:

Luke, @lah7 Thanks for the clarification
So the pre-formatted works just fine when using an extra line between text and the application of preformatted, however the block quote failed to include the text between <>
OR
you only corrected the first … I’m trying pre-formatted from another computer this time

[email protected]:~$ apt-cache depends caja | grep Breaks
  Breaks: <libcaja-extension>
  Breaks: mate-session-manager
[email protected]:~$ 

seems to work just fine, now with block quote

[email protected]:~$ apt-cache depends caja | grep Breaks
Breaks:
Breaks: mate-session-manager
[email protected]:~$

So the block quote doesn’t work Lesson learned :grinning:
