Bug: new lines in pre blocks aren't preserved

Nathan Collins — Sep 28, 2017 04:35AM CEST

Hello and thanks for your great Push to Kindle service! I came across a page today that doesn't get formatted correctly by your service (well, I only looked at the preview; my Kindle is not with me right now). The page is https://www.fpcomplete.com/blog/2017/06/readert-design-pattern and the problem is that the new lines in the <pre> blocks on that page don't get preserved when converted by Push to Kindle.

Hi Nathan,

Thank you for reporting this. We looked into it and found that it was a bug in the HTML parser extension we relied on. There's a fix out for it now and so the problem should be resolved. The URL you reported now seems to preserve the pre blocks: http://fivefilters.org/kindle-it/send.php?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.fpcomplete.com%2Fblog%2F2017%2F06%2Freadert-design-pattern

The bug details can be found here: https://github.com/layershifter/gumbo-php/issues/7

Let us know if you notice anything else.
