    We've had to switch editing modes, to try to solve the image attachment troubles people are having.

    You're experiencing the side effects of this change. I'm sorry for the inconvenience!

    We hope to have things back to normal soon.

    @Eric Chadwick OK no worries, I was able to work around it. Just wanted to make sure you were aware ;)

    Im getting the same issue that Jordan was getting earlier on the post, gotten it quite a lot earlier today on Chrome running Windows 10. Now at home receiving it pretty often just navigating from page to page on Firefox on Windows 10. On trying to create a new post in the technical talk forum received the same image and error, upon reloading this error appeared at the top of the page.

    { "Code": 404, "Exception": "Draft not found.", "Class": "Gdn_UserException" }

    Edit: The forum post seems to have gone through but while that was happening the code would pop up if I pushed either post submission, save draft, and preview.

    Thanks for the report. I'm following up with Vanilla support, and will let you know what I find.

    Hey, I must be doing this wrong, but the info thread says that YouTube videos can be embedded pasting a specific URL format; but I can't get this to work. 

    https://polycount.com/discussion/comment/2692602/#Comment_2692602

    Format appears to match the kind on the info thread. Where am I mucking up?

    So for your vid it would be hxxps://youtu.be/RiQYitn5ock
    FWIW it took me a few edits to figure it out.

    Not really a bug but just a suggestion. Would it be possible to get a check box for hiding all the threads that has been "Moved to", or return the brackets, as I personally find skimming the thread titles gets harder because of that text, and if it's actually belong to a different section, we should see it there anyway, so to have an option to hide it would be useful.
  • Eric Chadwick
    We could just delete them. Might make things easier all around. Thanks for the suggestion!

    On Chrome very often if I try and save an image it'll only let me save as a webP, an issue that seems to be mostly exclusive to polycount. I regularly switch to Firefox just so I can save art in their original format on here.
  • Eric Chadwick
    Webp is being implemented more and more on sites, specifically targeted at Chrome users. Speeds up image delivery quite a bit. Not something we control directly though, that's on Vanilla's end.

    There's a webp loader for Photoshop, and you could also run a batch conversion using something like Image Magick if you wanted.

    Webp's are quite compressed though, so if you want top quality you may be better off using another browser.

    On second thought, moderators decided they want to keep these around. Fuckin' moderators. 

    If they're still a bother, you could just visit them to mark them as "read" so they turn gray.

    A couple recent bugs introduced by Vanilla Forums when they updated the platform on November 15:
    1. Passwords have been reset for everyone. See Sticky ⛔ You need to reset your password. This is most likely because...
    2. Extra line breaks are being added. They're aware of this and working on a fix.
    3. Discussion topics are not being marked as "Read". They're aware of this and working on a fix.
    Sorry for the trouble. We'll update you once these have been laid to rest.
  • Eric Chadwick
    1. Passwords thing continues to be an issue for stragglers. Especially those who don't have their original email accounts anymore. Dude, this forum is oooold.

    2. The extra line breaks thing has been fixed.

    3. Marking visited topics as "read" is also fixed.

    Bonus points. Images were not displaying at full width. WAYWO in particular. Fixed this. They were being forced to max height of 400 pixels, so we removed this limit.

    Before, and after:

    Didn't really read the whole thread, but I found a couple of bugs that I'd like to help squash.

    1) If I'm not logged and I try to access a user's Profile page, I get to a Sign In page, instead of the usual html modal window. There, the Sign In button gets covered by the Footer.
    That's because the <footer> is inside of the <div class=container>. Move it to outside of the container and that'll fix it.

    2) In a thread list page, such as in the index, if you move your cursor to the right of the title of a thread and slightly above, you'll see that it changes to a pointer. That's because the <a> isn't wrapping around the text. If you change its display property in the CSS file to display:inline-block, it solves that problem.

    Not a bug, exactly, but the draft saving feature while I'm typing a quick reply is a bit annoying... It freezes what I'm typing. And ideally it shouldn't.
    Looks like it doesn't happen all the time, though.

    Also, hi! I haven't been here in yeeeears! :D
  • Eric Chadwick
    Thanks for the report!

    The div.container is actually inside the footer, at least here on my desktop. Are you viewing on mobile? Could you let me know which browser you're using?

    Source (left), result.


    And if I change the <a> style to inline-block, the formatting goes a bit nuts. I'm not a web dev by any measure though, so my tweaks are very trial-by-error.


    The auto-save does not seem to prevent me from typing. I'm on a desktop PC, Windows with Chrome. What are you using?

    Oh, I'm talking about the div.container that's right under the div.banner.

    This is the current behavior:




    This is where the footer is located in that page:




    It's inside of div.container:




    And it should be here:




    I'll check for a better solution for the <a>...

    I'm using Chrome on Win7.

    It's just the behavior for the ".DataTable tbody .EntryLink" <a> that should be changed, that won't affect the username links.
    You could change it either on the style.css or rev[date here...].css.

    .DataTable tbody .EntryLink {
    display: inline-block;
    }

    The a.AuthorLink does have an odd behavior on :hover, though, currently, without any changes:


    That happens because the .DataTable tbody .AuthorLink has both a set padding and a negative margin to compensate for that... for some reason, and a background color on hover.
    If you remove these two lines, that'll fix it:

    .DataTable tbody .AuthorLink {
    display: block;
    /* padding: 8px; */
    /* margin: -8px; */
    border-radius: 2px;
    }

    I don't know if it will affect any other part of the forum, though. I guess it won't.

    The search button icon is currently broken.



    It's happening because the code in the input value is escaped. To fix it just replace it with either the correct code or the "" unicode character.

    From:
    <input type="submit" id="Form_Go" name="" aria-label="Search" class="Button" value="&amp;#xE1D5;">

    To:
    <input type="submit" id="Form_Go" name="" aria-label="Search" class="Button" value="&#xE1D5;">
    or
    <input type="submit" id="Form_Go" name="" aria-label="Search" class="Button" value="">

    Looks to be an issue with the frontpage right now, no problem a couple of hours ago:



  • Eric Chadwick

  • Eric Chadwick
    Should be all fixed now.
