Development of the forum

  • I have three questions:

    1. Do anyone know if there is someone at Opera working on the forums?
    2. Do anyone know if any feature/issue with the forums has been fixed, during the last two years? (for example the "search" function, which just seems to spit out random stuff)
    3. Do anyone know if there exists any plans or speculations on fixing these issues? The existence of this forum category seems like a joke right now.
    1. I know nothing. I'm agnostic. 😛
    2. There happened some bugs that were fixed. Wrong smilies have been fixed - some... :whistle:
    3. Seems like about right. Cold in Norway, but Frankie Tagliano said it was "the land of second chances" 😉
  • What's happening today? (It's morning.)
    Friday the 13th? Lame/incomplete rendering: first main page loaded "old-fashioned", even included other language sections like in full; some icons and buttons are either not visible or have their text placeholders instead (well, some are missing - I can't seem to detect the smilies button right now)...
    😕 (smilies are irregularly invisible, too)
    Ah! The preview function doesn't seem to work (I'll copy this before hitting, in case...)...

  • Ah, I can't seem to edit or flag posts either: the two buttons are invisible - though the "quote" one is working nevertheless.

  • @joshl
    It started yesterday for me (forum layout broken)
    I think it's about new dev build
    didn't test it in stable or beta

  • Looking all right right now... 😕

    Nope: smilies broken. And badges corrupted - some.
    I can edit though - I could see the dropdown (though not the buttons).

    And the "edit" screen looks rather void...

    Second edit: I CAN SEE THE SMILIES BUTTON! :cheers:
    And this good thing: after the first edit the thread page loaded AS IT SHOULD BE LOOKING - not like the glitch before 🙂 (The smilies dropdown might not be behaving TOO well though, but still:)

  • Edit: my badges reappeared now, and the two buttons, and I see they've just upgraded the edit mode!

    But the broken thread view after edit glitch seems to have made its way back again 😐

  • @joshl
    i had to disable Opera ad blocker to log into forum....
    every time I visit forum I'm logged out (and it shouldn't)
    clicking log in button shows error this site can't be reached
    not sure is it forum problem or latest Opera dev

  • There's still problems, the forum pages keep loading apparently without their css, resulting in a terrible mess!
    I have to keep refreshing them all the time and they eventually come right.

    Me too, in Opera stable!

  • Tried in another browser now (Opera 11): autologged all right (seemed a bit slowish but -->), then it loaded all the way as I mentioned in my first post here today (Dave said without css) - with loads of other languages' sections same way, moreover, having clicked on this board, same "without css", the thread seemed all right though.
    What's happening? Attack of KGB? 😕
    Edit: yikes! after my posting this, the thread's gone awry also.
    Edit2: after ^this^ previous editing saved, looks all right.

  • There are still problems for me, perhaps 70% of the pages are loaded without css. If I reload the page a couple of times, it will work.

  • Ditto, here. It takes reloads to get forum pages to appear correctly - sometimes several.

  • Some "as-if" sign-in problems: kinda logs me, but it doesn't show till I click-click hither-thither and the page gets cssed.

    1. Like reply with quote.

    "3... for example the "search" function, which just seems to spit out random stuff"

    You're lucky, I just get the thread home page

    Wait I found the quoting when I was looking for "edit". Very light grey below the avatar...

  • Works fine today. Looks good.

  • Midori 0.5.8: after posting a comment, the page doesn't scroll itself to the usual last post. In other browsers it does.

    I guess it might be a reload underdeveloped to the proper page position.
    A page loads from its top first, then it should normally go to an anchor - or some "saved" (last) position.
    Though anchors do work as they should when it's a new page (here, subdirectory).

    Testing the new browser. Making some notices - hoped relevant :rolleyes:

    Correction about anchors: just noticed/realised, that the just posted comment's page is not hashtag-anchored... :whistle:

  • CSS gone for me now. Everywhere here.
    You?
