test post

Just checking to see if we can

To that end we'll post a random picture, (of a World War 2 Thai gunboat) and center it...

We'll also caption it, mentioning that the ship carried four 8 inch naval rifles on 2300 tons full load. That's smaller than a Fletcher class destroyer. 

Next, we'll express our confusion and discomfort at this animated .gif

Seriously guys...What the HELL?

Then we'll bring about an end to the spoiler tag text by typing [ / s p o i l e r ] but all scrunched up like so

Now we'll type some text outside the spoiler tag and just for good measure we'll post some surreptitiously taken footage of Steven Den Beste enjoying his hiatus. However, out of consideration to our readers we'll put it behind a NSFW tag...

Aaaaaand let's see if it works....

The blog does indeed seem to be broken.
(Though thankfully the NSFW tag still works.)

Let's try a simple spoiler tag with only text inside it here

UPDATE 2: It looks like the hidey tags just don't like centering. Of course I eliminated the centering on the RWBY post at one point but that did not fix the problem. 

Now I'll try de-centerizing the images and captions and see if that works. 

UPDATE 3: Nope. That did not fix the problem. All but the first line of the spoiler text is still visible and now the formatting just looks bad. Obviously the blog is possessed so we'll re center everything and call in the exorcists from Oceania. 

Be advised gentle readers that Tiki torches may present a burn hazard.

1 Amazing, even though the shot is from the waist up, I can tell she has great buns.

2 Is that what Happy Meals are like in Japan?

My beard isn't quite that long yet.

4 I can see the problem; the WYSIWYG HTML editor combined with the BBCode tags is producing what is known as "tag soup". That's when the tags overlap each other, like this:

<i>This text is italicsthis <b> is italics and bold </b>and now your browser throws a fit.</i>

This is tricky to prevent at the source, but I think I can fix it in post.

5 On second thoughts, nope.  That didn't work at all.

6 Well, just to nit pick a little, what you posted wasn't overlapping tags.

7 Meanwhile, Russian naval otaku seem oddly interested in a 5-second fragment of a video, which seems like a first glance of some kind of new destroyer (could be a pipe dream of a shipbuilding company).
