Little Bugs

  • 🐛

    This is the La Pinnata thread. :minion: Let's catch them all! :devil:

    There were notifications shown today. Twenty-something.
    First, if there are some (new), there's a red blob with a number next to the menu button top right. But the blob doesn't seem to be clickable.
    I did navigate to the notifications. It showed 55 pages of it, every single one "dated" "21 days ago". After I left there though, it seemed to "dissolve" -- in a sense that there was a new notification and it appeared like "from scratch" - "1" in the blob. The blob remained unclickable though.

    Second, I posted some, and at a time an "Error" popup popped up saying that I'm "as a new user" etc. -- about 120 seconds, you know. This is a bug - because I'm not a new user, whatever restrictions I'm liable to.
    (Here the thing with the badges might have helped - if we had those. On the "old" forum (my OLD is MY OPERA "old", so someone here's "old" is not THAT old - rather previous) I did suggest that "monkeys" were to be released from at least most drastic restrictions; here now, I could suggest we have some stati, probably referring to our joining dates (mine - on MyOpera - is like year 2006, no poop).)

    Hi,

    Thanks for taking time to write about it. As for notifications - yeah, they are dead wrong the first time you open the new forums (if you are a migrated user) and we couldn't do anything about it 😞 Marking them all as seen should resolve problem and all next notifications should be correct. But the "blob" should be clickable - the whole "Notifications" icon should be. Can you confirm that clicking that icon: 0_1510662424387_Zrzut ekranu 2017-11-14 o 13.26.50.png
    does nothing for you? If so - it looks like some bug.

    About the posting restrictions - they are based on reputation - the old forums didn't have such concept so everyone starts "from scratch". Since there was no easy way to artificially award old users reputation we had to sacrifice that solution.

  • @amatczak It's not THAT icon: yes, I remember seeing it on some 'main page' or alike.
    The thing is, I'm USING the forums, and am mostly in boards or threads, and here I have in the top right: the menu button to drop down (a grey square with kinda lines in it) AND right (actually left) next to it - the blob. The blob looks like elliptical with no bells pictured around. And this blob is NOT clickable -- while the instant notification popups notifying me about a new reply are MUCH TOO INSTANT - I couldn't seem to possibly catch it, let alone that I'm usually doing something at the moment and not very much interested in reloading my stuff away.
    (I made a PrtSc - where to put it?)

  • And a VEEEEERY LITTLE bug: after editing, in my Firefox I appear at the top of the thread rather than at the start of the comment being edited. It might not be a bug at all, perhaps just a slight piece of bearable underdevelopment - but still: we're catching them ALL🐯

  • Amatczak, the unclickability of the blob seems like "easily workaroundable": clicking on the menu button, it drops down the list of latest activities I've been notified about. However, to me, it seems not being exactly tidy if you get what I mean: suppose the blob would be AT THE CORNER of the menu button? then it'll be looking as I should click on the latter - here I am! right? OR it's to be clickable, taking me to a/the notifications page proper.
    By the way, now having a 1, in the dropdown it showed me quite a bunch - is it all right??

  • So you are talking about mobile view...
    The blob just indicates how many unread (new) notifications you have. To access it you have to click the hamburger button (three grey lines). I never thought this to be confusing to be honest 🙂

    Btw. You can upload screenshots directly here when writing a post.

    Why "mobile view" when I'm on desktop (kinda)?

    How do you upload? The tools bar? Trouble is I tried clicking "emoji", and my Ff ESR52 hung for several minutes ('unresponsive script').

  • @joshl There is an icon with a cloud and an arrow that says 'upload images', just click on it.

  • @joshl The 'Unread' icon maybe? It by default will show all unread posts for all forums. You should be able to change it there.

    I will hold you liable for any incongruence with the scripts then:P
    Nope, it wants a saved file. No clipboard.
    O'k, now0_1510666865286_Of-171114_Blob.bmp Did it work?

    No, I've read the thread about it. I did it before any other notices I've done, so I'm aware and know the difference. Thanks.

  • @joshl It seems so. 😁

  • You can paste directly from the clipboard... copying from amatczak's earlier post: 0_1510675918842_fa15f3df-f837-4f0e-953c-7976a7266e82-image.png

    Yes, I said Paste. Just select Paste from your context menu, or Ctrl-V, or whatever shortcut, and the system handles it - if the image isn't huge.
