Site quirks, bugs, problems since last update

Hello AROS dwellers,

This thread is to track a few issues still present on the newest CMS used for this site. A few have been fixed and applied already (i.e. HTML tags in PMs, posting for members in forums, etc. etc.)

There are still other issues lingering but if you find any, please reply to this thread and I will do my best to address it or report it to the CMS developers.

What has been acknowledged and being worked on is:

  • Members can reset passwords but cannot change it in "Editing Profile"

I came across an issue that must be one of the most annoying and frustrating things that one has to face in live.

The text preview cripples me as an individual. It has a dislike for my left arm, and therefor just chops it off, and doing so without my consent.... even worse it doesn't even ask me if i would rather live with my left arm attached.

So... never again will we be able to \o/ cheer \o/ with both arms in preview mode.

People are now forced to live on without being able to experience a good cheer in preview mode, and that saddens me.

As a countermeasure, i am now going outside and am going to experience a bit of sunshine. then all should be good again Smile

PS: but on a more serious note, i haven't experience any functional limitations yet, other than mentioned. I'm still looking for them though Pfft

\\o/ cheer \\o/

Try adding an extra left arm to escape the backslash. The single slash is a security risk and can be used as a SQL injection command. As a result, the single slash is not interpreted as a command and shows black but putting the extra slash tells the CMS it is intended as plain text and not a command.

I have attached a snippet of the code of the two cheers at top of this text.

Actually, I just realized the problem only exists in preview mode and not after posting the reply. I'll report that to the devs.

Thank you for your post Magorium.

I actually found another issue: I had the choice to edit my post right after I posted it. I tried to edit it and it didn't change. I tried to re-edit and the option is not available anymore?

hmmmm one more for the devs.

Thank you.

Indeed because now the post itself is mutilating my body, attaching another arm Pfft

That is the deep kind of meditation. I haven't been doing that yet. I would have to sharpen my pencil first for being able to do that. Now I feel sad again Grin

Most certainly sounds like it.

Thank you.

This is actually resolved. It was a config change I had made during troubleshooting of another issue and had it left it like that.

New 'issue', if you can call it that.

Whenever you edit your post, then switch to preview mode, the message-editor's toolbar stays active.

Perhaps not an issue you might think, until you start pressing all these nice buttons. Then switch back to text-mode. How nice that all actions where actually performed while viewing the post in preview mode.... now to remember where you put that cursor before you went to preview mode (and as such which part of your post was being messed up).

In preview mode you are able to select text, so perhaps expected that highlighted text to be 'italised', 'bolded' or 'underlined' but , nope Smile

PS: i am still completely disoriented by the word-wrapping acrobatics of preview mode btw Pfft
