Change Problem Comment Title

I wasn't thinking and titled a problem comment with information that helps solve the problem. So I thought I would edit the comment. To my surprise I found you cannot edit problem comment titles. Is there a reason for this?

Re: Change Problem Comment Title

Bit of a dilemma isn't it?


It has to do with the structuring of the web page.


I made as though I wanted to offer a comment and called up the "View Page Source" or whatever it may be called in your browser. I admit that it is not easily read, but it offered a clue.


I verified this when I looked at the comment that I "going to post".


When you post a comment you are presented with two separate text boxes, one for the Subject and the other to house your dialogue. These are added to the web page as separate entities. When you edit a comment you only get to call up the comment dialogue textbox. Is this sufficiently an issue to take to levik to give us all the privilege to re-work subject titles, have it passed over to scholars, or just leave it? My thought would simply be to add an italicised "Oops!" note within your comment referring to your inadvertent transgression.

Re: Change Problem Comment Title

One more problem, I cant use '<' (less than) sign while posting a problem as the content between < and next > is being lost.

Re: Change Problem Comment Title

Praneeth?

You use those symbols whenever you use I, B, BR, P tags for instance, or to provide a URL link without concern.


I'm more than sure that I've seen inequalities used .......

............stop! ..........

......yes, I have but have they always been in the same direction?



Sometimes the unicode works when the symbol doesn't.


-- less than, amp hash 60 semicolon
-- greater than amp hash 62 semicolon

and Bractals might consider
amp ang semicolon for the angle symbol

I have been explicit in detailing these as some of these symbols are only predictable when you remember their effect here.

Re: Change Problem Comment Title

Errr :-(

Needless to say I PRE'd much of the above. But will experiment.

Re: Change Problem Comment Title

I submitted a problem as a test which read:

"Let a < b and c > d".

In preview I got back in the text editor:

"Let a < b and c > d".

It submitted correctly.


In the event that the codes are replaced by their symbolic representation, the first is amp lt semicolon and the second is amp gt semicolon.

Re: Change Problem Comment Title

Que sera!

Well, you have the codes to try them if you wish.


Incidentally, I'm reasonably certain that scholars only get special HTML tag privileges in the JM review forum.

If you still have issues we can address them for you in that area.

Re: Change Problem Comment Title

Sorry, actually the whole content is missing but look at this case,
"If a<b,a" is given
x wont get printed.

Re: Change Problem Comment Title

Statement I want to print: "If a less than b, then a to the power x" use
to get power. Here the power x wont get printed.
"If a<b, a"

Re: Change Problem Comment Title

OK

I wrote:

"If a & lt; b, then a power x" which resulted in "If a < b, then a power x\"
There will be a difficulty here if you have to edit the text at a later time, you will have to ensure that you the sign with the code. Btw, in the code above, leave out the space between the & and lt.

Re: Change Problem Comment Title

The "\" occurred because of mispressed period.

What does "ensure that you the sign with the code" mean?

Re: Change Problem Comment Title

...Oh, d*! Found Praneeth's last comment late at night, thoughts were faster than the typing.


.....you will have to ensure that you replace the sign the code. .....
