Problem with the "sup" button


For some reason the 'sup' button no longer works. I have tried the 'sub' and 'sup' buttons many many times, but only the 'sup' button does not work. I have tried typing in the HTML manually but that will not work either. Strange, I can no longer use things like 2+ in the proper manner.



‘Calcination… is such a Separation of Bodies by Fire, as makes ‘em easily reducible into Powder; and for that reason ‘tis call’d by some Chymical Pulverization.’ (John Friend, Chymical Lectures London, 1712)

Right is right, even if everyone is against it, and wrong is wrong, even if everyone is for it. (William Penn 1644-1718)

The very nature of Random, Chance development precludes the existence of Order - strange that our organic and inorganic world is so well defined by precision and law. (me)

I just figured something out and I thought it might be useful to the unaware like me.
Code:
[sup] test [/sup]
is what the forum generates when you click the superscript button and doesn't work, producing : test .

This
Code:
<sup> test </sup>
however works, producing : <sup> test </sup>.
I have no idea why, I don't have much experience with web programming, perhaps someone has a better explanation.

It works because it's HTML code, only the BBBode seems to be broken.

It's been several months really, I know it worked when I registered, but since then it broke. Thanks for finding a fix though.

Thanks, that makes sense.

Via HTML:

Superscript <sup> text </sup>

Subscript <sub> text </sub>



Via BBB:

Superscript Text

Subscript Text





Rapopart’s Rules for critical commentary:

1. Attempt to re-express your target’s position so clearly, vividly and fairly that your target says: “Thanks, I wish I’d thought of putting it that way.”
2. List any points of agreement (especially if they are not matters of general or widespread agreement).
3. Mention anything you have learned from your target.
4. Only then are you permitted to say so much as a word of rebuttal or criticism.

Anatol Rapoport was a Russian-born American mathematical psychologist (1911-2007).

Are there other HTML tags that work here? I've never understood the need for BBB code on this kind of software.

I can't believe I didn't think to try the HTML tags. I had been trying to use superscript for awhile now, thinking it would be really helpful in a couple instances, and then decided to just abandon superscript and subscript for consistency. Added benefit of being simpler on me, so I will have to try and force myself to "do the right thing" now.

sub and superscript not working?


I've not been able to get the superscripts to work. For instance: 7o. (I put a 7 and then the [ sup ] o [ /sup ] for the degree symbol.

I don't know that anyone has for years. But sub works ok.

A reminder that you can use Latex. See the sticky' "tools you didn't know you had."

Thanks VS

Code:
<sup>superscript</sup>Normal[sub]subscript[/sub]

For the life of me though, I can't get them aligned over eachother, like atomic notation
<sup>133</sup>55Cs just doesn't look right.

You mean this?
$$^{up}_{down}Normal$$
Code:
$$^{up}_{down}Normal$$


$$^{135}_{55}Cs$$

"I wonder if there's a way to format:

We have a force
$$F=ma$$
acting..."

... in such a way that everything is inline. On another forum that uses LaTex I just put the LaTex code between single $ signs. That doesn't work on SM though...
