Questions and Confusions

    @leocg said in Questions and Confusions:

    @joshl Your (Gr) avatar should be still there. Did you check Gravatar?
    You can upload it to the forum if you prefer.

    Maybe I will. The confusion is in the "Welcome" thread it's been stated this thing hadn't been affected by the migration, if I remember correctly.

    It wasn't (at at least wasn't supposed to be). You're the first case where someone claims to have lost it 😉

    After a quick investigation there seems to be a bug in the Gravatar plugin for NodeBB. Your e-mail is not lowercased before calculating its MD5 hash, even though it should, as per https://pl.gravatar.com/site/implement/hash/, hence giving the incorrect hash.

    https://www.gravatar.com/avatar/0d23a67ee5f72031910c5b206343f84a -> lowercased (how it should be)
    https://www.gravatar.com/avatar/e0e72eafd30524a882727db80dbeebdb -> not lowercased (how it is now)

    I will file a bug in the plugin and probably fix it myself without waiting for the original developer to step in. If you cannot spare the wait just use the Forum's ability to upload your custom avatar right from your profile page.

    Thanks for catching that bug!

  • @amatczak I'll wait. (By the way, it's a quote from a classic "Angel on my Shoulder" B&W film, delivered by the Smilie character;)

  • @joshl And it wasn't. Or shouldn't at least.
    BTW, my gravatar still works fine here.

  • @joshl Desktop meaning a desktop OS like Windows, Linux or Mac.

  • @joshl I guess the forum software considers users with a reputation below a certain number as new ones.

    So it is.

    Though nowadays, they make stuff like Windows for phones or like that...

  • So let me get this straight.
    I have no face, no badge, no postcount, no reputation...
    Shall I chop Suey? Huck! somebody stole my gun!🤦♂

    Here, take mine: 🔫 🖐

  • https://github.com/julianlam/nodebb-plugin-gravatar/pull/15 - it is a quick and easy fix. Shouldn't take @julianlam long to review it 🙂

  • @amatczak [WHISPER]Those holes are too small anyway, you can't see heck in it. I'll see what it'll look like: most probably it will have to be changed to something less Ayvazovsky and more Malevich... 😞 Like an arse? Well, everybody recognises arse however small the peephole is:crazy:[/WHISPER]

  • About this retaining of all Markdown functions, I just noticed that four initial spaces in a new line doesn't seem to eventually create an example box, or what people here used to use for showing large pieces of code etc.
    Well, it might not be that big a deal per se, but there are older posts where people used those code boxes. Will that be so much big a deal, I do not know: those pieces will be shown as plain text paragraphs... Then again -- certain "non-formatting" will be reverted there... Won't it?

  • Something's missing!..

    Just dug through my profile pages, did not find such thing as "My topics" or "threads created by the user" or something. Only some recent comments.
    We did use to have both -- even in a certain very well visible bar close to the top of most pages. Certainly on the profile page we did.
    Will it appear back here?

  • 🔫?

    On your profile page - below the name and stuff - it lists "Posts made by joshl, And yes, it does say 3.8k posts. If you click on the 3 dots to the right of your avatar, the menu should include both Posts (topics started by you) and Comments (replies to existing threads). Note that both appear as one big list, as you scroll down older stuff gets added to the bottom.

    Yeah, I was about to chop Suey because I had no face;)

    Yes, I found it in the dropdown: just "Topics".
    And no, no one big list, fortunately; separately "Topics" then "Posts"🍺

  • My reply to Steve's latest post wasn't shown in the row when I opened the thread this time now. It appeared folded in that blue "1 reply" -- while I didn't have those previous times - or at least it seemed/seems so.
    I did not touch any settings (nor even remember seeing one for that). Why does it get folded or in the row -- and how does one fix it? Is there a setting for that? Myself personally seem to prefer it in one smooth chunk - not chopped into separate folded conversations... 😕

  • Since I can't post it in the chat, here's a screenshot of how I normally see a chat popup:

  • @sgunhouse I can only see the cog and the cross no matter what. 😕

    Should I try disabling the adblocker? It shows 1 piece of something "prevented" here...
    It didn't seem to help. However, I'm still not too familiar with this uBlock at all -- something I seem to get, something else gets me at a loss...

    Not sure if pasting a clipboard will work here in Firefox... 0_1510683313968_83f73465-7ffc-4f86-9d44-efecda5d2a76-image.png Huh! it does (unless it's the old one)! (No, it isn't.)
    It does work. Well, that's how the chats list looks from down here on the zoom 133%. On ones 120% and lower it looks like yours, Steve.
    No, I have not tried other browsers yet. And I'm not sure if I will: Chrome is buggy, outdated and dangerous, even perhaps infested; my Opera 36 gets me BSoD every exit now; the Good Old Opera 11 I won't even try; my Midori is, too, outdated, and even then when I used on OperaForums it had layout issues. So, perhaps Midori would be the only one I could try, but - considering it already had layout issues -- what assurances could one have that it will make any sense then??
    (Well, my tablet has a couple of browsers installed, but it only works out of WiFi, WiFi I have only got at the hospital, I've no intentions to get sick again and get back there any time soon:P)

  • 1024x600 huh? No wonder. We don't have that bar on the right either. Get yourself a larger screen (if possible) so you don't have to zoom so much, I guess,

  • @joshl it should work. Let's try:

    First line
    Second line
    

    And some text afterwards.
    You need to add one blank line before the code block for it to work. AFAIK this is consistent with Markdown specs.

    Your wait is over. Lo and behold your glorious Gravatar! Thanks to @julianlam for merging the fix quickly.
