Difficulty pasting quotes from online articles
« on: March 25, 2013, 06:09:58 AM »
Ron,


Was trying to paste a quote from Seeking Alpha this morning and find the quote filled with typographic notations.  Please advise.  And many thanks for your splendid site.


Cheniere to export £10B worth of gas to U.K.[/color][/size] Cheniere ([/color][/size]LNG[/font][/size][/color]) has signed a £10B 20-year deal to provide 1.7M metric tons of natural gas per year to U.K. energy company Centrica ([/font][/color][/size]CPYYF.PK[/font][/size][/color]) in the first such agreement between a U.S. supplier and a British utility. The deal is subject to Cheniere securing financing and the required regulatory approval, which isn't necessarily such a sure thing given the opposition to gas exports in the U.S[/font][/color]

Either the copy/paste included parenthesis around bb-code tags, or something else occurred while you were setting the font size and colors.  I stripped all of the tags.

Unfortunately, this was the second time I tried unsuccessfully to paste an article or part of an article to the site. I do not know what a bb-code tag is and I did not set font size or colors.  What is a tag?

In other words, how does one avoid this problem?

This is a little bit or work, but may solve the problem.

When you paste it into the text box, can you see and edit out the  [/size] and other similar?

Hi ak.  Is THIS what you were trying to cut & paste?

"Centrica strikes £10bn deal that could see US shale gas supply UK homes
Centrica has struck a £10bn gas supply deal that could see US shale gas heating British homes by 2018.


Centrica said the 20-year deal with Cheniere Energy Partners would allow it to export enough liquefied natural gas from the US to supply 1.8m British homes each year.

"This landmark agreement represents a ...., enabling Centrica to strengthen its position along the ...... Centrica's chief executive. ....
..... welcomed the deal, With the first shipments not due from the Louisiana-based plant until 2018, the deal will do nothing to relieve the current strained gas supplies caused by a colder than expected winter. "





I find that if I highlight & cut out JUST  the typed words, (which is what I did above. Actually in two different cut & paste.....one for the operning headlines & then a second for the body of the text.) THEN, I seldom have any trouble. It's when I blanket highlight & cut  the whole page, with pictures, ads, or comment sections that BUGS creep in.

Hope that helped, if I am off-base then just pat me on the head and say, "Thanks for sharing, now please sit down."

Please....   DO NOT paste entire articles in the forums.  It causes me to have to answer nasty emails and phone calls from the original authors!

Simply post a descriptive sentence about what the the  news item or article is about,  and then provide a link to the actual article.

Ronnie,
I'm not necessarily condoning nor promoting the activity, simply answering a question on how to cut & paste an article. 

I try to make 'em keep their hands inside the bus,
