Reporting Site Issues

This thread is for users of the forum and community to report any issues with the site and its services for review by a site administrator.


General feedback about the website and community should instead be posted in the Website & Community Feedback discussion thread.


To make it easier for us to reproduce the issue, include as much information as you possibly can, including but not limited to:

  • Screenshots

  • Where the issue occurred

  • When the issue occurred

  • What you were doing when the issue occurred

  • Any error messages displayed

  • If the issue is a recurring one

While we attempt to test as much as we possibly can before making it live, some issues can fall through the net, especially as we deploy new software or functionality and following security and stability updates. Any feedback to assist us in isolating and eliminating problems helps us is always appreciated, and it helps us to make ThinkClassic a much better place.


Thanks,

~ iMic.

Re: Reporting Site Issues

There is a 60 second post limit which is a little bit annoying. I tend to hop threads and post faster than this quite alot.

Re: Reporting Site Issues

I noticed a moment ago that a thread I had posted in the peripheral thread wasn't there. After I went to the Index and back to that thread area the post was back up. I may have noticed this once before but I will try to keep an eye out specifically for it. This time it happend about 4:16pm central usa time. chrome browser Version 31.0.1650.63 on OS 10.7.5. No error codes or pop ups were shown and chrome was the only app open with just that one tab at the time.

Re: Reporting Site Issues

Nevermind, I think I figured out what was happening when it happened again in a different thread area. I believe I had clicked on "New Posts" which only displayed the threads with the new posts whereas clicking the thread category link showed everything. I would have just deleted the post I made a few minutes ago but I didn't see the option unless going into Edit and deleting the text would effectively remove the post.

Re: Reporting Site Issues

Attachments should never have been on. I'm lazy. I don't want to add the disk to support it. There are plenty of other boards that take this approach also. You can use services like imgur, imageshack or tinypic to host images.

EDIT: I notice that you were using Dropbox to host your images in a  different thread. Be sure to change the image URL from "www.dropbox.com" to "dl.dropbox.com" to make the image a direct link instead of a link to the Dropbox gallery-style page.

Re: Reporting Site Issues

Out of the box, I don't believe FluxBB has an option to enable attachments. It has a lot in place to link to external resources, but adding attachments would require an extension (and the disk space and other system resources to support it).

Cannot use quick reply on mobile devices with chrome or dolphin. The box expands too big and overlaps the submit button.

Re: Reporting Site Issues

I'll possibly see if I can load up Chrome on one of my devices and see if I can correct this issue.

Re: Reporting Site Issues

There seems to be issues regarding logging in to the site tonight. I don't know when it started, but my iPhone is complaining that it can't sign in (and I'm using autofill for my password). I reset my password and I can't log in to change it on my iPhone. Luckily, Safari on my Mac Pro is still signed in, otherwise I couldn't post anything.

Affected machines:

Safari on iOS 7.1.1
Safari 5.0.6 on 10.5.8 Leopard

Re: Reporting Site Issues

Tested authentication here and it all seems to be working correctly now. Was wondering if you're still having this issue?

There are no private messages here. You have the option of emailing the member directly at the email address they used at registration.

Well I never had the reason to use it, except to send someone my address to send a board to. Then I suddenly realized, no PMs. hehe.

Re: Reporting Site Issues

Hello,
I have a question but it could also be an error. I can't seem to find a link to the PM inbox. I received one, but I cannot find out how to retrieve it.
It could just be me and if I just need a kick in the right direction I am sorry for a post in the wrong area.

Re: Reporting Site Issues

These forums don't really have PM in the usual sense; when you "PM" someone, the message goes to the inbox of the email they used to register, and all further communication takes place in there, not the forum.

Re: Reporting Site Issues

Yep, FluxBB doesn't have a built-in Private Message system. The "Email" link below a user's information on each post does however allow you to send a message via the board that is then delivered directly to the email inbox of the recipient.

Re: Reporting Site Issues

Ahhh, alright. Thanks guys. It all makes sense now. I was able to reply from the email, so I didn't really catch on that it was the only method. That works fine for me. Thanks for the clarification!

Re: Reporting Site Issues

I'm hopeful that we can bring Private Message support to ThinkClassic at a later date, but it all depends on the development of FluxBB. Their v2.0 release apparently adds extension support which may allow us to implement a messaging system, but the project hasn't set a release date for that version yet.

Re: Reporting Site Issues

A minor bug I've noticed.  When clicking the link button while composing a message, it inserts a <br> at the end of the link name.
here is a video<br> demonstrating the problem using firefox on osx 10.9.

Re: Reporting Site Issues

Issue noted. I have been able to replicate this in Firefox, but not in other browsers. Possibly a script issue. I'll look into it ASAP.

This issue should now be fixed. The issue appears to be the result of the Link Description field being a div class while the Link URL field is an input class. The CSS style was correctly applied for the input class, but not the div. This caused some rendering anomalies in Firefox that forced the browser to add a HTML line break in there, which was then included as part of the string when submitting the link. It also made the field look "collapsed" until something was typed, as seen in that video.

A rather simple fix however - correct the bug in the code so both fields are input class fields instead, which is probably how it should have been in the first place.

It now seems to be working fine in Firefox here. Let me know if the issue persists.


Cheers,

iMic.
