I’m putting this under General after first thinking it would go under Weblog, but I think it is affecting any “textarea” editor in the web UI. I can’t seem to add a textarea
<textarea> and what seems to happen is that on save, it ends the editor and all subsequent content that may have followed it now becomes markup on the page. Yes, it is as bizarre as that sounds.
I was planning on adding the sample markup + markdown combo I’m using for entries of form items in my styleguide to a paste but even the paste editor seems to suffer from this, so I created a gist here: textarea.txt · GitHub. It contains both markup as HTML and markup in markdown code ticks and works for all other form types so far except textarea (I’m nearing the end with the “t”).
Perhaps I’m not meant to have textareas in my styleguide and this is the universe telling me to stop working on the styleguide.
