Anyone wanna help me find a bug?

There is a bug in the forum that's causing an unwanted "<br/>" to appear between list items. Look at the source code for this list in your browser:

  • item1

  • item2

  • item3

Here is the file that handles our BBCode/HTML conversion. If you can find it, let me know!

It's right, sorry, my mistake!

It's funny. I was having the same exact problem with one of Amazon's systems. They replace all the line breaks \n with <br> tags without checking if there were other HTML tags in the text that were generating new lines. So, don't worry Bucky, if Amazon have the same problem, that means you're on the right track :-)

As someone mentioned, the problem is on the line 
pasteddata = pasteddata.replace(/(<br[\s//]?>)/ig, "\n");

The problem is with the convertToHTML function. As you write in the WYSIWYG editor, whenever you press the enter key, it renders it as a tokenType.newline as in that function and it includes even when you write HTML tags, try writing this and it won't produce the <br> tags.
Hope this helps.

That JS file is very confusing :/ I'm not that experienced in js :/ but I may guess the problem by asking a question. I belieave that whem message is being posted thoose <p></p> in message preview is being converted into <br>, is it happening with \n too? because if it is than there's your problem.
