"Advice Thread <advicethreadcentric&g t;"
For some reason the closing bracket has been rendered as the HTML equivalent for display: >
So I wondered if that always happened. Maybe it was just that it was wide enough or something?
that's been bothering me but I was too scared to mention it unless no one else could see it and i got laughed out of the class
The code parses out the thread title and clearly the HTML safe functionality is applied to make sure that an < and > are stored as < and >
However, there is then line breaking routine to make sure thread titles don't just run on and on one one line, and this means that the > has been broken on that thread title.
Really the parsing to provide automatic line breaking needs to be applied before the HTML filtering.
You don't need to talk in your southern accent when you type, you know.
or a typo
