So Rob installed some new anti-spam software recently, and gave the place a new(ish) look. But I noticed a couple of bugs straightaway. So I thought I should make a thread for people to post any other bugs they've found.

First of all, all the buttons on the formatting bar appear to be greyed out. Or whatever it is, none of them seem to be working now.

Secondly, when you quote another post, it doesn't show up as being quoted when you submit it. Basically the 2 posts merge into one. Obviously the more posts quoted in a chain, the worse it looks.

Anyway, just thought I'd mention it to Rob.

EDIT: Also, I just noticed that the quick edit feature seem to have gone.

EDIT 2: I also noticed that it now shows peoples "interests" under their avatars. Is this really necessary?

Another one seems to be, when you type something in the fast reply box, if you accidentally click out of it, clicking back into it results in you losing what you've just typed. That could be dangerous.

I right clicked and pushed Undo and it all came back and let me edit it again

Ah, well spotted.

Still though, it would be nice is it could be fixed.

Now I've just found another one. Clicking on a link someone posted doesn't open it in a new tab any more. It just opens the link in the same window.

I noticed there is a (+) and (-) voting feature at the bottom of every post, but if you click either one is doesnt count it and just says that you've reached your quota for the day.

The "Go To First Unread Post" button next to each thread doesn't seem to be working either.

The multi-quote doesn't work either. At least, not the way it used to. Maybe there's a new way of doing it?

I'm looking into those issues, thanks. keep them coming.

Can anyone make a new logo with the darker blue, or do you want to change the blue to match the current logo?

I can bring in some classic GTU teal as well if you'd like

Thanks,
Rob

I kinda miss the old old GTU colours.

I did notice that I don't have permission to prune topics in Gear. Also, it doesn't let me batch moderate the topics by clicking on the select topic box on the main page of the gear forum.

Update:

I've identified a few things causing problems. One is that some javascript is not loading, that causes the editor to not allow you to click on smileys or font settings. Also it's a new interface so I'm trying to cut back on some of the clutter to make the website easier to use. 'PM's have become 'conversations' and there are some other changes so it's a bit of an adjustment. I think the rep system will be fixed along with the javascript editor problems.

Also, I will change the colors to match the logo and try to get some of the old GTU colors (rather colours for some of you) back.

It's gonna take at least today and tonight to do this stuff, so please be patient - and keep posting bugs.

Thanks (where guitar-playing smiley would go)

The Javascript problem is fixed now.

It should fix many bugs around the site. Please try the rep, fast reply, etc. again now. They all work much better now.

Thanks, :guitar:

Probably doesn't count as a bug but on iPhone (safari) I'm not getting the full version of the site, but a low spec light version.

That's a "feature"

I can't see my pm box.


Click your username in the top right for a dropdown box. Then click messanger for PM things.

It should still alert you on any forum page if you get a new one. Can you confirm that it's working for you?

I will bring some old colors back.
For the second part, please try this again and then let me know if it still does not work.
