Forum Bug List and Reports
« on: August 07, 2011, 10:08:51 pm »
This topic is to be used during the semi-private beta for a list of new bugs and bugs to be squashed/have been squashed.  Please report any bugs you find here.

This is a developing list of bugs that includes theme issues.

  • The bottom of the theme has a weird white table window that doesn't wrap correctly or appears for no reason. fixed 8/7/2011
  • The Administration Panel Header Text is Yellow. fixed 8/7/2011
  • When editing buddies, the following error occurs:
    Wrong value type sent to the database. Array of integers expected. (buddy_list)
    fixed 9/24/2011 - malacoda
  • The moderator notes has a scrollbar from the table cell not being big enough fixed 9/24/2011 - malacoda
  • The Wiki Sidebar in the forum has been Truncated, removing all instances of the é in Pokémon making links broken and making it say "Pokmon" fixed 10/31/2011 - malacoda
  • The Wiki Sidebar has a blank toolbox placed in the wrong area and has two null tables (Search and Languages) fixed 9/24/2011 - malacoda
  • Avatars do not show completely (i.e. Yuzihax's DiscoBrock) on forum posts, although they do in profile. fixed 9/24/2011 - malacoda
  • At the bottom of the forum list, above the "Info Center", the legend for the board icons has wrong images for "No New Posts" and "Redirect Board". fixed 9/24/2011 - malacoda
  • Creating a board spits out this database error:
    Database Error
    Field 'redirect_target' doesn't have a default value
    File: /var/www/glitchcity.info/forums/Sources/Subs-Boards.php
    Line: 787
    fixed 8/15/2011 - malacoda
  • Posted links in dark windows such as this one are harder to see. http://something.com 9/24/2011 - malacoda. NB. I added an underline to all links in posts, because I'm afraid this darker link might be harder to tell from normal text

  • The Board category text shows up white for guests. fixed 9/24/2011 - malacoda

  • Avatars do not show completely (i.e. Yuzihax's DiscoBrock) on forum posts, although they do in profile.

Update, even though Yuzihax's avatar now shows on forum posts, to clarify other profiles are still affected by the problem, some in their profile page as well e.g. Tombstoner's (I'm assuming you didn't remove your avatar, so if you're reading this please correct me if I'm wrong!).

Hi! I identify as female.  She/her pronouns, please.

Online I most often use the username Torchickens or Chickasaurus.

Ah.. koucha ga oishii ♪





Thank you Aeriixion for the cute sprite above! :) Roelof also made different variations of the sprite (which I animated).

Contact:
If you like, please contact me by private message here on the forums as I no longer check other places very often.

I like to collect interesting video games. ^_^

Give love, receive love, repeat. But in order to love others you must first love yourself unconditionally, even if it means abandoning pressure from projects or taking time off work and empathise with the self as you are your own best friend. The key often is simply to follow your heart, your urges and have faith they are valid; use them to do what you want to do as long as it doesn't harm anyone, and/or sympathise and respect it as we all have bad days (even the prettiest rose has thorns but is still beautiful).

Idk if this is wrong or isn't, but when I post, I'm automatically redirected to the board while I should stay in the thread where I posted.
Hug me~!

That's how SMF works, there might be a setting in your profile you need to change.

Yeah, there is.  Go to profile > change settings > look and layout then check the box that says "return to topic after posting by default."

  • Avatars do not show completely (i.e. Yuzihax's DiscoBrock) on forum posts, although they do in profile.

Update, even though Yuzihax's avatar now shows on forum posts, to clarify other profiles are still affected by the problem, some in their profile page as well e.g. Tombstoner's (I'm assuming you didn't remove your avatar, so if you're reading this please correct me if I'm wrong!).

All old avatars that were uploaded aren't showing up for some reason.  Re-uploading fixes this but not for members who no longer go here.  It's some kind of directory bug I'm guessing. For clairification, the bug I was addressing is that large avatars don't have a scrollbar in posts, and instead get cut off like Yuzi's.

I will be upgrading the forum to 2.0 Final sometime this week (its currently still on RC5). Until then I won't be doing bugfixes that require code mods (the buddy list issue looks like one of these). After the upgrade we'll see how many bugs have been fixed.

This error report may help:

8: Undefined index: time_am

8: Undefined index: time_pm

edit: Seems none of the reported bugs were fixed by the upgrade, sadly.

The forum names are extremely hard to read before registration, white on mottled light gray/white is not the best choice. http://i.imgur.com/VLmgC.png

Registration requires no less than five unique questions which almost no one will know without extensive searching (took me quite a while to find, and I know my way around the site roughly, still had to guess one of them), along with a capacha. This is waaaay over the top anti-spambot protection and will prevent almost all casual users from registering. Just the capacha is plenty to stop almost all spambots, maybe keep one much easier unique question if you're really paranoid about spambots. http://i.imgur.com/WHdiS.png

Also, not quite as direct a problem, but having a way to dismiss the large bold paragraph on the forum index about forum rules once you have read them would be really nice. It could be implemented as a dismissable announcement rather than as a permanent redirect forum, making the forum index much less clogged up. Similarly, though it takes up much less space, the link to the main site in the forum index could be removed in favor of making the top-right logo a link to the main page, as most sites do.

Something's wrong with your browser, that text is actually dark grey.  Try forcing a cache refresh (shift+refresh) or updating.

(See attachment)

The number of questions that need answered has been reduced 2 and the questions given will randomize.

Thank you for your input! :)

It's just that color for people who have not registered, most likely due to them not being able to post/there being no new posts. When I'm logged in I have the same as you, but before the very light/hard to read color is used.

Much better, though still maybe a little more than needed in my opinion. It's not like a spambot will get through a single unique question. or even a capatcha most likely.

No prob. Will post more as I find it :)

Actually, the questions were put up due to mass spambot accounts getting through the high-end (not extreme) captcha.

Those category names should not be white. I will look into that.

Good idea about the rules reminder text by the way.
