The Testing Thread

Paulustrious Sep 12, 2010 04:27 AM

I searched to find if there was a thread in which you could test things. I had a another member ask me a couple of things and I wanted to check out a few things before I replied. I didn't want to accidentally post in a real thread so I created this one. So the moderators can delete it if they wish, or leave it if they feel it serves a purpose.

Possibly they should consider their own sticky version.

    This thread is fine. Anyone is welcome to start a testing thread on Site Talk, as required.

              If you reload the page, you should be able to. When you first make the post, and it shows it to you within the thread, it's actually just a dummied up view. You're still seeing the thread as it was when you last loaded it, and your new post doesn't have a reply button. As soon as you reload the page, the reply button should appear.

                        Do you know how long ago you were seeing that problem? Within the last month, or further back?

                          Within the last month, though not the last few weeks. I know I had problems with a parenthesis being moved down to the next paragraph in the title post of this May 2011 thread.
                          http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/785489
                          An edit or two wouldn't move the parenthesis back to place.

                          I am certain I had the issue again a couple times soon after, this time with a hyphen starting the next paragraph. Problem is I don't remember which thread, and I think I just edited the whole thing out at the time so there's no evidence left.

                          While we're at it, I was also having problems here
                          http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/7873...

                          I would type ' 800/4K ' which somehow replaced with ' 8

                          2F4K '
                          I was using a Mac at the time, and I don't think the problem repeated on my usual PC, though I guess we'll see with this post.

                            Regarding the parenthesis:
                            This sounds like it may be an older bug related to our URL generator. The current workaround is putting a space after the closing paren. I'll try to bring it to the appropriate engineer's attention.

                            Regarding your 0's magically turning into newlines and garbage:
                            That's related to a post-editing bug that we (in theory) fixed last Wednesday. Unfortunately, your browser cache may be holding onto an older version of the offending file; try clearing your cache. If that second problem persists, please let us know.

                              Thanks. The Zero problem only happened when I was using a friend's computer, so I don't seem to have any issues with it now - on my computer '800/4k' is reading as it should.

                                Any progress on the parenthesis problem?

                                In my experience having a closing parenthesis ) followed just by a new line ("hard return") ALWAYS moves the closing parenthesis to the new line. Putting in a space (as you suggest) fixes that. This has been going on for quite a while, at least a year? Or more?

                            Recently, closing parentheses not followed by punctuation at the end of a paragraph have been moved to the beginning of the next paragraph (perhaps like this)

                            I am browsing on Chrome, and use a PC.

                            ETA: Ok, there it didn't happen. Not sure why. (maybe if I don't skip a line)

                                                        With the newest version of Chrome this seems to be hinky

                                                          With the newest version it now takes three very rapid left clicks to get back to the board.
                                                          Right clicking slowly seems to do nothing.

                                                          The boards don't use UBB code. If you want to attach a photo, you have to use the upload function beneath the posting window.

                                                        I have had the same issue today, Cynsa, on the What's For Dinner thread. However, I'm not trying to post pictures; I'm just trying to POST, and I get the circular go-round without anything posting. Not sure if it's going on on various boards, or just the Home Cooking board. Figured I'd try a new post here to see if it actually goes through.

                                                                              I then tried again today -- still couldn't post it.

                                                                              So I posted a simple, one- or two-line sentence. That worked. I went back and immediately edited that out and substituted the longer passage. For some strange reason, that worked.
