this forum website does incredibly annoying things like stripping extra whitespace which destroys any assemblage of formatting. Is there any way to fix this excessive stripping?

example outline format with some simple spacing:

A) heading

1) subheading

2) another subheading

look mom... no spaces. 10 of them before this sentence just vanished.


this is psuedo code {
I like to indent;
every statement;
especially {
when i nest;
}
}

believe it or not but EVERY paragraph was double spaced between each line, yet its all run together. Hopefully this illustrates the frustration.

I've experinced this too... really annoying. Instead of fixing this - in comparison - simple forum, why not deploy one the free very advanced forums out there? Throw in a Knowledge Base too - with good searchable content it can be very helpful and offloads the forum. Also a good bug/feature request tracker where you can vote for features and bugs. Put the docs in a wiki - should make it easier to keep it updated with user contribution.

I admit that it looks nice with the forum and stuff integrated into the website - but I think functionality is more important

If you need to preserve spaces and indentation wrap it in the <code> tag - it works ok now
