Yesterday I sent in an alert reporting that a goodly amount of the text in the following older threads, below, (contained in ex tags) is completely
hidden from view. If this had been implemented at the onset of ATS's bbcode system there wouldn't have been problem because posters would have been
aware to front-load their URLs for sourcing purposes.
Examples of threads and posts this affects:
Now since the text is cut off arbitrarily it makes a great number of older threads utterly unreadable.
I've enjoyed ATS for several years now, but as I go through many dated postings where the text is now arbitrarily clipped it's just not worth
reading. The whole thing has become a formatting nightmare.
For this to be workable without ruining all the older content on ATS the ex tag should be left alone and a `new ex,` with this limited functionality,
should be substituted in its place.
