Interesting, here at work the WYSIWYG buttons all appear to be blank, as I mentioned in an earlier post. But that is not why I popped in here. I think I found bugs that are related.
When you hover over the date of each post (just below the poster's name) you can see it is supposed to allow you to link directly to that post. That link for the first post in a thread is formatted differently from all the rest. It would appear that if you click on the link on the first post it should take you to the beginning of the thread (the first post). But it doesn't, it takes you to the bottom of the last page. Next, if you hover over the link at the bottom of the page to go to page 1, the link is formatted almost the same, but it adds "/p1" to the end. For me, that takes me to the bottom of the first page and not the top. So I don't see any way to link to the top of the first page. Finally, if you hover over the link for any other post on the page the link is formatted differently and would appear to let you link directly to that comment. For me, sometimes it does, sometimes it jumps to the bottom.
westbranch said:I quoted a previous post and started to add my comment , outside the Quote area. I made a typo and when I removed it I could no longer type in the external area , but my comment was showing up INSIDE the Quote area. I had to back out and restart the whole process..
No script blockers running, so that’s not the cause. I'll just write my posts in a text editor, and paste them in for now, until I figure out what triggers it.
It looks like I can re-add my old signature, so I'll do that shortly.
An example of a thread where the photographs are messed up is http://forum.solar-electric.com/discussion/24155/gulf-island-off-grid-system-part-6-solar-expansion-intertie
I may be able to fix them manually by updating the URLs to point to rackspace manually.
As for the user name, it seems to just prevent me from displaying my main user page, so right now, no need to change the account name.
Thanks for the response!
This Thread is out of chronological order, the way I see it, and by the way that I accessed it:
Posts from 1/14, followed three posts from 1/13, then two posts from 1/15, and then, five posts from 1/13, followed by two more posts from 1/15 ... makes this thread IMPOSSIBLE to follow, and because the time that previous day's posts are DELETED by Vanilla, one cannot even tell if the chronology within a single noted date is correct.
Are we going in reverse, now? ... Vic, where it is still today -- 1/15/16
Thank you Vic,Something is definitely broken. I have submitted a bug report.-Bill
Vanilla uses AJAX.googleapis.com (and perhaps solar-electric.com) for browser scripting. If you have AJAX blocked (noscript) or turned on scripting in the browser, some of this stuff may not work.Regarding linking, for example this thread, the page #1 points here:http://forum.solar-electric.com/discussion/349832/new-forum-software-is-live-report-any-errors-bugs-or-issues-here/p1And takes me to the top of the page... But does not for you?-Bill
