Failure to list all HTML code within HTML widget

Today, I'm unable to view all the HTML code on one of my web pages. It's a match fixture list totalling about 3,400 lines of code. The code is saved within an HTML widget. When I try to scroll through the code it will only show about the first 80 lines and then returns to the first line. I've never had this issue before. I use IE8.

Hello Tony,

IE 8 is a superseded browser and not recommended by Yola. Even though you may have originally placed the code with this browser it may not be working satisfactorily now. The strong recommendation is to use FireFox or Chrome. Suggest you try these and see if that resolves the issue.

Please clear your browser cache, which is a first line recommendation.

I find it strange you don't expect customers to use the HTML widget for large amounts of code.

We need to publish our match fixture lists and it's not possible to type a long list into a text widget and format it as required. So the options are either:
- a link to a separate document. e.g. a pdf;
- html code in an HTML widget.

I write our fixture lists in a Word table, convert it to html, strip out the additional MS metadata, and paste it into an HTML widget. Works really well, as long as you format the original Word document correctly!

I've done this in the past using IE8 (I have Windows XP) and as recently as a few weeks ago. I had to use IE8 because when I used Firefox the chart did'nt display correctly after pasting it into the HTML widget.

Last week, when using IE8, I was unable to view all the HTML code on one of our fixture pages. When I tried to scroll through the code it only showed about the first 80 lines and then returned to the first line. This was not an issue with my computer - my son tried it on his machine (also using IE8) with the same result. I could get round it by deleting the HTML widget containing all the code, inserting a new HTML widget and pasting in the new code. Although the widget would still only display the first 80 lines of code, when saved, the chart displayed correctly.

Since then I've tried editing an HTML widget using Firefox again - I always have the latest version. I was pleased to see I could delete the old code from an HTML widget, paste in the new code, save it, and see the chart displayed correctly . It also much faster using Firefox than IE8. I'm pleased I can now use Firefox to paste in new code - it may be down to changes in the latest version of Firefox, or recent improvements you've made to the Yola web editing site.

So, problem solved! For your info, the page on our web site is:
