Board Issues 4

I'm not sure whether that is still possible. If you go stand in someone's quote, though, and press enter twice, the quote breaks.. It works better when you stand at the end of a sentence, than at the beginning of one.

This does not work reliably for me. Sometimes I can break a quote in two without any trouble, but no further. Sometimes I only can break them at ends of the lines (that is, the end of text ... not if the line ends with space). Or it works at certain spots in the text, and not in others. Sometimes it doesn't work at all. I have no idea why each of these scenarios happen when they do. Is there a trick to it?

I'm having the same problem.

We'll probably be attempting another upgrade once support is back after the holidays and we've looked into whether we can find a better solution for the high traffic periods this year. The new version forces us to abandon the less resource-intensive search engine we switched to for a while, so there's a risk with that going forward.

Since this new forum took effect I am having a problem. 

When I post, there is always blank space worth couple of lines in the end of my posts, I checked multiple times, it is not my fault of pressing Enter or deleting something.

Edit: Probably to spite me it hadn't happen this time. It doesn't happen always but it is regular enough for me to notice

Edit 2: It appeared when I edited the post and I know I didn't press Enter or mess with the copy/paste or quoting or deleting content, so fuck it, if it disappears after this edit I will know forum gained sentience and is doing it on purpose

The wiki is no longer loading full pages. This happens both in reading-mode, as well as during edits, and more frequently every day (to the point where, today, I can't load any page). 

This occurs only on laptop, not on mobile.

I cannot read more than one page of the forum on my iPhone. When I click the second page (or even do the skip to page thing), it just loads and ad. When I click back, it takes me back to whatever subforum I was reading. Any fix?

Check out this old thread:

Every post in the three pages of that thread that has quotes in it, has somehow had all replies deleted. Sorry I can't think of a better way to phrase that; just look for any reply in that thread that has quoted text in it, and notice that there's somehow nothing there except the quoted text, anymore.

This is still happening..

Last evening, I cleared my cache and cookies and such, and when I tried this afternoon, the wiki would load pages again completely (although not 100% of the time). After having not tried for several hours, I am now, once again, unable to load a full page..

 

Any ideas on what I could try? The issue exists on multiple browsers.

I can't post anything from my laptop. I'm on Firefox. The option to post is greyed out. I can't even send a pm. Everything is blocked. I'm fine on my phone to a degree. It's acting strange. 

Scrap that, it's working now after posting with my phone.

We've just done an upgrade, so it's possible that cached stuff was not working. Clearing browser cache may also work.

Yeah I had the same grayed out text box issue and clearing the cache fixed it.

I needed to ask somebody what "clearing the cache" means, but it works now (for those who are stupid like me and still do not know, delete your browsing history). The editing box was grey and unclickable for some hours for me too.

We used to have a little " button in the editor for putting a quote box around text. It seems to be gone. Not a huge deal but I used to use it a lot when quoting SSMs and stuff. 

When clicking "reveal hidden contents" that are hiding large amounts of text, weird stuff can happen. A few times my browser tab seemed to freeze up, and when I tried the list of old threads in the R+L=J thread this happened: (google chrome)

Edit: the A+J=T thread actually suffers from the problems more due the the huge amounts of hidden text in the first post

On a Windows tablet (not W10): the emoticon icon is the symbol for creating a link, and the icon to click for creating a link is a gear, and the "align right/center/left" are all incorrect too.  They are correct on my Windows phone though...  :dunno:

Not sure if this is a board issue, a design issue, or just a me issue,  but I can't find a way to change the colour of text, strikethrough, add spoilers, change to html mode.

The options I do have are bold, italic, underline, indent, unindent, link, 'core' emoticons, bullet points, numbered list, align left, align centre, align right.

I can put a quotebox in using cntl-right as long as I haven't written anything else, and can get an attributed quote by clicking the quote button in the post I want to quote. 

Is there any way of getting into 'full editor'?

Again, sorry if this is the wrong forum to post these issues.

This is also true for me (working from iPad, and I noticed the same was true on my phone

Looks like I'm having the same problem. I'm on a MacBook.
