speaking of bugs, we were having an issue yesterday and earlier today where password reset emails were being dropped by outbound forwarders. that should be resolved now. please report if you're still not getting your activation or password reset emails.

The email finally worked for me, apparently =)

When I click someones nick (like your's in this view) I get sent to an

"An Error Has Occurred!

-page.

How do I change my "Custom Title"? There doesn't seem to be an option. I want to get rid of the "\" that somehow got injected. I seem to remember using \' to print ' in one of my coding classes, but don't remember which language. So it seems like something that would easily be overlooked in the import.

My signature got borked as well. When I try to recreate it I run into a 500 character limit. The formatting tags take up a lot of characters so WTF.

And why do swear words get replaced with "puppies"? I like asterisks more than that. Or how about no swear filter at all? Please?

Title: Re: Bug Reports

In fact is search working?

I tried "Ducky Shine" and latest post is April 2012.
Title: Re: Bug Reports
Post by: Soarer on Tue, 24 July 2012, 07:51:49
Search is working, but by default it shows results in order of 'relevance'. You could try advanced search instead, which lets you change to showing most recent hits first.

I think date order probably makes most sense for GH...
Title: Re: Bug Reports
Post by: alaricljs on Tue, 24 July 2012, 08:42:39
Also there will be references to Ducky Shining that your particular search will miss.

Every refresh now and then Moderate gets in the link bar at top (between search and profile).

Obviously clicking on it gets me an error as I don't have any moderation power.

But still, why do I see it sometimes.

And it seems like it's totally random. I refresh the same page 4 time in a row without the moderation link, and the fifth time it is on the page.

i've adjusted search weighting slightly

Hmm. I just tried it out and I'm not sure it's the right way to go - I think it reduces the difference between 'most relevant' and 'most recent' searches too much.

I'm not really sure which kind of search the majority of users would expect to get from a quick search. My guess would be that most quick searches are for recent posts, but that's just a hunch.
Title: Re: Bug Reports
Post by: fartq on Sun, 29 July 2012, 09:40:28
this may be something that time will work out. once more people start hitting the search engine heavily we may get a better idea of how to weight the quick search

This may already have been addressed.. but getting into the full editor when editing an already posted post, is even less obvious than when creating a new post.

There are no "goto last post" links in the notifications view. They would be handy to me at least, since I keep that page as sort of a bookmarks page.

Hm...I have a bit of an issue with the unread posts page. I like scrolling through it and clicking on all topics that sound interesting. The problem is that when I go to the second page the topics I have clicked on are removed and the sorting is messed up and I don't know where I am in the list anymore.

Also some mod could merge the two topics on the new Synaptics capactive board ( A tactile keyboard with no mechanical parts ; Synaptics Thintouch)
Title: Re: Bug Reports
Post by: alaricljs on Tue, 21 August 2012, 14:26:03
Unlike vB the unread posts page does not get cached and left unchanged until you hit 'Unread' again.  It's a fresh query every time, including when you change pages.  It's a small pain in the butt.  I typically reload the page every few times I hit new topics to deal with this.
Title: Re: Bug Reports
Post by: i3oilermaker on Wed, 22 August 2012, 10:26:36
I have two issues that I see with posting.

1) Sometimes the editor will shrink the size of the text to 70%.  Not sure exactly what triggers this...sometimes a paste, sometimes deleting a row.

2) Posting of multiple attachments never works for me...I have to post it first, then edit and add attachment.  I can send the error page over if you are not already aware of the issue.

Are any of you guys dealing with the popup to take you to your inbox if there is a new message not working? It shows up but if I click ok it doesn't take me to it. I've tried with pop up blockers off, on multiple oses including my phone and it never works. Honestly I'd prefer if it just directed the browser to it in the same window but that's just me.

The last page of the GH60 thread has just broken down and returns a 500, after I tried a couple of times (unsuccessfully) to post with an attachment.
The attachment is visible in "my attachments", but "my posts" fails too, just like this single page of the thread, probably because it contains that faulty post.

I just posted on http://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=36405.msg684096#msg684096 and I tried to put the images between spoiler tags.
Using the button it would change font size and turn everything ahead of it into garbage; Manually putting the tag, made it ignore.
If I edit the post, there is no spoiler tag there.

I don't really know if it's a bug or I'm not smart enough to use the forum...

Also, is there any way to add buttons so that content is initially hidden and when clicked it would load pictures and the likes?
I think it is a good measure to save up bandwidth, specially for the ones using slow connections.

Actually media says 3944 Posts and 0 Topics, with the last post information still there.

But when you open the page there are no topics listed (as you might expect).

I noticed that this morning and started a new post there - suddenly all the old posts reappeared.

Now they have gone again.

New Members also says 2091 Posts and 1 Topics, but opening that page shows a single screenful of topics (i.e. more than 1, but definitely not all of them).

Title: Re: Bug Reports

The 0 Topics and missing topics seems to have been fixed, but the geekhack media forum only has 73 topics, with the oldest from the end of July 2012 (probably just after Geekhack came back).  This is in contradistinction to, say, keyboards, where the oldest post is from 2007.

But I can't say that I noticed how many posts where in geekhack media before the recent problem.
Title: Re: Bug Reports
Post by: rknize on Mon, 15 October 2012, 16:39:03
The media forum was pruned of pre-rootworm posts a while back, since none of the attachments survived.  The posts are archived, so check there if you are looking for something specific.

The zero-post issue was a DB maintenance task that didn't quite finish and left things in an inconsistent state.  It was recovered and we didn't lose any posts that I am aware of.
Title: Re: Bug Reports
Post by: rowdy on Mon, 15 October 2012, 16:53:20
No, not looking for anything specific, it just seemed odd that the popular media forum has so few topics in it, but archived makes sense as they are media-heavy.

Thank you :)

For some reason I can't upload attachments, all it shows is a grey square with "C:\fakepath\imagename.imageformat" written in it.
Figured this would be the right place to post it as it only happens on GH, I've tried using Opera, Chrome and FF and it happens with all of them.
Looking around the web doesn't seem to help either as the only solutions I can find on my end are for IE.

Title: Re: Bug Reports
Post by: vun on Wed, 31 October 2012, 08:05:04
Tried on my laptop using Opera and Chrome, getting the same problem there.
I'll upload a test image here as an example:
[attachimg=1]

Edit: Seems to work now. Huh.
It showed up as the grey fakepath image in preview though, maybe that's intentional, I figured it might be the first time I had this problem and posted anyways, only to get an invalid attachment. Maybe due to file size? I don't know.
I'll try and post a proper attachment and see what happens then, might be able to mark this as human error  :-[

Edit2:
Yeah, seems like I might have tried uploading something over the size limit the first time and from then on automatically assumed that the preview placeholder meant something was wrong.
Title: Re: Bug Reports
Post by: alaricljs on Wed, 31 October 2012, 13:53:50
In preview you don't get your image, because we don't want your image taking up space if you decide NOT to post.  Saves time and bandwidth too.
Title: Re: Bug Reports

Like I said; that's what I figured the first time I saw it, but when I posted it turned up as an invalid attachment. I then assumed that the grey square meant something wasn't right, although in hindsight it was probably just over the file size limit.

I'm getting an HTTP error 500 every time I try to post a thread in the Classifieds section. Is this normal? When I resend the data I'm getting an error saying something like "this post has already been submitted", so I guess it registers somewhere. When I go back to the post only one of my five attachments is left, so I'm thinking that it has something to do with this.

Don't know if this qualifies for some kind of bug report though. :)

Strange indeed.  If your ISP doesn't yet have the correct IP address info, you are getting mal-formed HTML, which is probably being interpreted as bad juju by your PC.  You can fix that by adding an entry to your hosts file.

Edit: I just tried it. It doesn't bring me to the last post that I read. Sometimes it jumps to the newest topic in the thread (which is what I thought it did), sometimes it jumps me to a random point earlier in the thread.

I didn't even know "Last Post" was over on the left, so Thank You. I tried it on a few threads and it always takes me to the last post, regardless if I've read the thread before.

Win 7 + Chromium in case that matters.

Edit: Just tried it with Chrome and had the same thing you're experiencing happen once or twice.

Edit2: It just happened with Chromium, which only makes sense lol. FWIW, it only seems to be threads I've never read before.

That little icon with the arrow is supposed to take you to the oldest unread post in that thread, not to the bottom of the thread.  It's the same as the little icon with the downward facing arrows in the "Unread" and "New" views.  It has worked very consistently for me.  The results will also be affected by remote use of the site via a mobile app.  Tapatalk interacts pretty well with it, but I've seen situations where mobile access affects SMF's pointer to your last read message in that thread.

The uncensored option is missing when using the nostalgia theme. I tried manually adding it in and submitting it, but it still doesn't work...

Code: [Select]
<li>
<input type="hidden" name="default_options[show_no_censored]" value="0" />
<label for="show_no_censored"><input type="checkbox" name="default_options[show_no_censored]" id="show_no_censored" value="1" checked="checked" class="input_check" /> Leave words uncensored.</label>
</li>

The "viewing this topic" section is also missing in the nostalgia theme.

Code: [Select]
<p id="whoisviewing" class="smalltext">0 Members and 1 Guest are viewing this topic.</p>
To fix both of these should be simple right? So why have they STILL not been fixed after all these months?...

THANK YOU rknize! Those have been bugging me since R00TW0RM. Now the only things left are the "moderate" menu, and not being able to go to the last post of a thread from your notifications page if you've already read that thread.
Title: Re: Bug Reports
Post by: rknize on Mon, 11 March 2013, 14:37:30
I believe that the moderate menu thing is coming from a module that I installed very early on to let us easily add menu items.  It is extremely over complicated with a bunch of crazy features and likely explains this random behavior.  We are going to rip it out and just modify the template code directly to give us the menu options that we want.

As for the last issue...yeah this is a more subtle problem with how SMF is doing the query.  There are a couple of places where we'd like to make query changes to alter the forums behavior.  This is more of a wishlist thing.

class="lastpost" dynamically fills the td right? So why can't this be put into the notifications page? Or every page in fact?

Oh, I completely misunderstood what you were asking for.  You just want the shortcut in Notifications...yeah that should be easy.
Title: Re: Bug Reports
Post by: rknize on Mon, 11 March 2013, 16:19:57
The link that I think you are asking for is already present there in the form of a "new" icon.  It shows up to the right of the topic description, which is the legacy location.  I can move it over to the left, just like in the usual thread listing.  Is this that you are asking for?  Threads with no new posts won't have this icon at all.
Title: Re: Bug Reports
Post by: The_Ed on Mon, 11 March 2013, 16:41:32
No.

(http://i.imgur.com/YA340XZ.png)

On the front page I can go to the last post (or the last post I read) by clicking a link. Everywhere else (including my notifications) I can go to the last post (or the last post I read) by clicking the "new" icon - but the "new" icon only exists if I have not read all the posts. If I want to go to the end of a thread that I have already read I have to click the link to go to the first page, then click the link to go to the last page, then hit the "end" button on my keyboard... That is very annoying when you have to do it hundreds/thousands of times...

Could you make the entire forum (or at least my notifications for now) work like the front page? I actually like the "new" icon on the right in my notifications, so leave it as it is.
Title: Re: Bug Reports

Heh...I never use that feature, but I understand what you mean now.
Title: Re: Bug Reports
Post by: rknize on Mon, 11 March 2013, 17:35:14
The reason for the difference seems to be that the profile management features are driven by the SMF core and not the template.  I've updated the core code to make it look more like the SMF 2.0 default template output.
Title: Re: Bug Reports
Post by: The_Ed on Mon, 11 March 2013, 17:53:44
Excellent! Now make that the default for all boards so that I don't have to click the link to go to the last page, then hit the "end" button. After that you will only have the "moderate" menu bug, and you say you're going to rip that out soon as well. Of course features will continually be asked for and worked on after the bugs are all taken care of.

I just thought of something else then - Page links in our notifications just like in the boards.
Title: Re: Bug Reports
Post by: rknize on Tue, 12 March 2013, 00:11:17
OK, the custom menu module has been painfully ripped out and replaced with custom menu items in the base code.  No one should notice anything different.  Let me know if you still see the "Moderate" menu bug.

I've experienced this previously, but only realized what was actually happening yesterday...

I have the Classifieds forum set up to Notify on new threads, but a few times I've received notification mails for threads that don't seem to exist - turns out it's actually threads that require approval. Once the thread is approved, a second notification email is sent, and the thread is visible.

Anyways it's not a big deal to me, but figured I'd report it to get it on the list.

Title: Re: Bug Reports
Post by: n1ko on Mon, 01 April 2013, 04:49:36
The email problem mentioned here bite me to. It's related to a misconfiguration in the mailserver geekhack uses combined with mail servers configured with security precautions.

Apr  1 12:27:16 salaliitto postfix/smtpd[7426]: NOQUEUE: reject: RCPT from runt-0.uhhh.org[65.111.241.202]: 450 4.7.1 <meg.se-test.org>: Helo command rejected: Host not found; from=<mods@geekhack.org> to=<xxx@yyy.com> proto=ESMTP helo=<meg.se-test.org>

The domain "meg.se-test.org" isn't in global nameservers and dropped because of "reject_unknown_helo_hostname" configuration in Postfix.

The fix? Geekhack guys should make their emailserver rfc-compliant, or you should drop the directive from your mailserver. If you cant affect the mailserver you are using you are out of luck. Gmail etc. could be used as a workaround for the time being.

Are any of you guys dealing with the popup to take you to your inbox if there is a new message not working?

Worse than that.  I've never seen a popup for this (even after disabling popup block for the site).  Maybe it's because I'm using the "Nostalgia" theme, but there doesn't appear to be ANY indication that I have a new PM (popup or otherwise).

Complete lack of notification seems to be related to the top part of the page being collapsed/hidden (the part that shows your avatar with "Hello [username]").  With that part expanded I see "Messages [1]" when I get a new message.

I don't get a popup, either way however.

why don't I continue to get notification email on threads I subscribe after I visit GH again but not specifically visit the threads I subscribe?  Is it a bug or is it a setting I can change?

Edit: Also, I set notifications to classifieds, great finds, and group buys forums, for sure I don't get notification for every new thread posted.

I know I *****ed about this already, but I feel that the way the PMs are displayed, especially the conversation view, is severely messed up. Sometimes it feels they go "missing" because they're actually hidden in other PM convos. Sometimes they don't get marked as read/unread correctly, or sometimes the order is not correct.

I've got a weird problem with Google Chrome.  Version 28.0.1500.71 m running on Windows 7.

If you middle-click in Chrome (and most other browsers) you get a crosshair kinda thing.  If you move the mouse pointer around, the page will smooth scroll.  For example move the mouse pointer up (above the crosshair thing) and the page will scroll down.

But, if I middle-click inside a quoted post and then move the mouse pointer to scroll up or down, only the post containing the quote scrolls.

Like this (sorry, my screen capture won't show the mouse pointer or crosshair) - I middle clicked inside the quote from jdcarpe in Tym's post:

(http://i.imgur.com/P0X5WHp.png)

(http://i.imgur.com/wdzRJil.png)

(http://i.imgur.com/Ma9hf8E.png)

You can see Tym's entire post gradually scrolling up into the post title and disappearing.

This does not happen with Firefox or Safari, just with Chrome.

So it is probably a Chrome "feature".  But I thought I'd mention it anyway.
Title: Re: Bug Reports
Post by: The_Ed on Fri, 12 July 2013, 00:22:01
That's kinda cool actually. I also use chrome so that works for me too. It's almost as if it's seeing quotes as a scrollable element within the webpage. But it doesn't just scroll the quote, it scrolls everything... Bizarre...
Title: Re: Bug Reports
Post by: rowdy on Fri, 12 July 2013, 00:46:27
Glad it's not just me ;)

It is distracting, 'cause I use the middle-click-scroll all the time, usually without noticing where the mouse pointer is.

Sometimes I get a post opened in a different tab (if I middle-click on the post title), but more often the single post just scrolls away.

Looks like you can keep scrolling too, it doesn't stop as soon as it gets out of view.

The old list is there, but is obfuscated my the new list.  I never used that feature, so I didn't notice this during testing.  You add new buddies to the new system by going to that person's profile and clicking "Add buddy".  It would be better if you could just type their name, though.

I also see the text instead of the smilies sometimes, but not sufficiently often to especially notice it.  It probably happens as much when I make a new post as when reviewing someone else's post.

Just noticed that I can un-watch just about every kind of thread except a thread that's been locked by the thread creator. I don't know if this is a bug or a feature, but I definitely ran into this problem with a WTS thread created by user "Amble."

I tried marking it unread, and then reading it again, etc. I tried many different things, but the only thing that worked was a workaround suggested by user "Soarer," where he told me to copy the thread link and edit the location of the link so that the action listed in the link was replaced with the "action=unwatch;" string. That worked like a charm.


Cheers,

So it seems like some of the emoticon issues are related to quoting. I just replied to a thread and if I have the quote properly setup the smiley faces don't show, but if I break the quote they do show up.....not sure if coincidence or cause....

You have a smiley in your first post (the post with the video).

Other posts include smileys.

No-one has quoted the video, however there is a known problem with smileys not being translated to pictures if you quote a post containing a picture.

Aha!  I missed that one.

Maybe smilie translation is turned off when a certain type of link is processed, be it in a quote or a youtube link.

WASD has discontinued support of their subforum, most likely because of the volume of business they now do. not a bad thing, but it's a disservice to both wasd and the community to leave an unmaintained forum up that is years out of date.

Ok. So when you archive a forum (looks like Kinesis is gone too :-/) can we still visit it with a different link, or is it in some sort of inaccessible backup ?

I get that sometimes.  There is a "X" on the right side that AFAIK is supposed to cancel the quoting process - I don't seem to recall that that worked either.

Sometimes this happens when my internet connection flakes out, so I put it down to that.

On each occasion simply reloading the page and clicking the Quote link again works.

It's happening to me as well.

I click post, then error 503 or endless loading.  I click back, before clicking post again, I check the thread in a separate tab and sometimes it is already posted.  Once there was something like a 2 minute delay before the post appeared after getting an error 503.

the problem seems to hit posts that link images in image tags the hardest. hence our suspicion that it's a dns resolution issue.

try attaching your images to your post. that seems to work better in my testing. unfortunately this is a bit of an odd one, as the gateway devices are not overloaded, but certain daemons are timing out with behavior that would indicate an overload.

Don't know if this is an actual bug, but I recently noticed something about the email service for notifications. It doesn't send them in the right order. I was talking with Spamray, and when he responded in quick succession, I received the second email notification before the first. Not really a big deal, but it seems there is a problem with how the system orders emails to send out.

Does your email client sort by "Date" or "Date Received"?  Many clients do the latter so that messages are sorted properly, even when spammers use fake dates.  Email doesn't always arrive in the exact order that it went out.

I think it sorts by date received (on gmail), but there is a good 5 minutes between the second and first message I received. That was what I found odd. This may just be a one time thing, I only noticed it today. Just thought I should mention it.

I'm trying to post this:

And I keep getting this:

[attachimg=2]

I can post in other threads (this one, for example), it only seems to be that post that won't go through.

I clicked the "Quote" link on 0100010's post, removed the link to the first image, typed my reply and clicked "Post".

Actually it looks like the replies went through, and I inadvertently created multiple copies of the same post.

But the error consistently appeared.

Edit: Got the same error again trying to post another reply in the same thread.  The reply went through though: http://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=61962.msg1446023#msg1446023

If it is external pages, GH doesn't have much (any) control over how they load.

I've been having lots of trouble the last hour with getting photos that were uploaded to GH to display. They start to load but hang somewhere between 10% and 50% complete. After a short while they timeout and just display blank outlines. In fact, I haven't been able to get a single photo attachment from GH to load for the last hour. Images from Imgur/Flickr/etc load without issue.

This is how pretty much every attached photo looks (this one is from the Post Your 40% Keyboard (http://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=53617.30) thread)

Nope, just GH. Mostly it happens on threads, but it also happens on the indexes. I have to refresh a page about half a dozen times, sometimes more to get the full thread.

Current browser is chrome on nexus 7, latest stable. Will confirm later on pc Confirmed! Winderz Sevin and Chrome latest--same thread

- subsequent reloads of the thread are slowly starting to trickle in more and more text

A bottleneck somewhere--possibly db , can't rule out nginx just yet either but on a good note it is serving up the cached instance rather well to the anon users

Post by: strict on Sun, 07 September 2014, 08:17:46
Noticed something strange this morning. My IP that shows up in the bottom right corner of the posts intermittently changes from my true, routable public IP (207.255.X.X) to a private, non-routable IP (10.20.30.X) like some part of the GeekHack setup is not passing along my true client ip.

I'm making some assumptions about the GH infrastructure here so it's possible I'm totally off the mark but I wonder if this is related to the throttling issues people have been having. If everyone appears to the GH servers as coming from a small pool of internal NAT/SNAT addresses I could see where the web server(s) could have issues thinking one of those internal addresses is posting to much due to the IP's getting reused. Essentially when another user makes a post less than 10 seconds before I make mine, the server sees the internal NAT IP as having been the poster for both and therefore activating the throttling mechanism. I would assume there's a pool of IP's being used so not every user would have issues every time there was a post less than 10 seconds before, but if the pool is small enough I could see this happening intermittently.

Edit - this post has my true client ip, but pretty much every other post I've made so far this morning has had the same internal 10. address from above.

Edit2 - Another thought just occurred to me. When I was having all the issues with not being able to get photos to completely load that had been uploaded to GH, I noticed chrome would always have the status message "Waiting for available socket" when it was trying to load those photos. Assuming I'm a little wrong above and GH is configured to use one internal NAT IP, I wonder if that photo loading issue was something like ephemeral port exhaustion on that lone NAT IP. Looking through my posts I only ever see one internal IP show up (other than my true public IP) which would lead me to believe there is not a pool of SNAT/NAT addresses in use, unless the the session/user IP mapping is extremely long lived.

Edit3 - Another thought. This issue could also affect the ability to IP ban someone. Two possible scenarios could happen:
- Someone who has been IP banned in the past can now get back in since the forum software only sees the internal NAT IP
- A mod/admin tries to IP ban someone and accidentally bans the internal NAT IP and ends up blocking tons of legitimate traffic

Assuming the forum software handles the banning and not a firewall device ...

Edit4 - Looks like this just started yesterday morning (Sep-6). The earliest post of mine that I can find with the internal IP is from 8:51AM EST on Sep-6.

Good catch strict. If the backend here is apache - you'll need to use mod_rpaf to forward real client IP addresses to apache. May need something similar for other backends

I am a new user and this fact may be a reason.
The problem I have is that I can't find all my sent PMs, but one single item I have have sent so far.
I definitely have sent more than one PM, but only one is shown under messages>sent items.
Have I done something wrong with the settings?

You have to check the checkbox to keep sent messages, I think it is NOT on by defaut.

And further to this, if you UNselect that option (i.e. do NOT want to save a PM), that setting is remembered for the next PM you send.

The trick is to check the checkbox for every PM you send.

Not sure who has the authority to approve threads, otherwise I would PM them, but I've been waiting on approval for a classifieds thread for about 7 hours now and in the meantime I've seen a few new classifieds threads pop up. I imagine it's some glitch but if someone could just check to ensure that it hasn't been overlooked that'd be great.

Edit: Just got approved, thanks.

You might be aware of this already, and apparently there are other problems at the moment, but the "MARK READ" button in a topic does not always work.  Posts that were unread are still unread after the button is clicked and the page reloads.  This is repeated several times, so I don't think it is a case of someone posting repeatedly in that thread.

I get sent to the new post sometimes.  It seems that happens if there is a network outage or significant delay after posting something.  I've found that more often than not the post has gone through anyway.

As for the images - are they particularly large?  A few people have problems uploading several large images at once, usually due to a slow internet connection.

My issue is I pm'd a few different people for different things and none of them replied , they are all usually very responsive so I thought maybe the PM's got lost in the ether.

When I click on a lot of links, only half of my page loads. If I refresh then it will load a little bit more but then it freezes again.

Might be the same as noisyturtle said.

Only been happening after I've been on for a couple of hours.

Is this links to GH pages, or links to external pages?

If it is external pages, GH doesn't have much (any) control over how they load.

Nope, just GH. Mostly it happens on threads, but it also happens on the indexes. I have to refresh a page about half a dozen times, sometimes more to get the full thread.

I've had to hit the reply button on this just to see the previous posts because it wouldn't load.

i have the same issue and i switched to 25 posts display and so far haven't had that issue

Or maybe its just TacticalStache's fault

I too am having this problem. However, it never used to be a problem, which leads me to believe there is a deeper issue here than simply modifying your user settings.

The HTTPS youtube videos not working is not an SMF issue, it's something to do with how youtube encodes content in HTTPS pages.

Using Chrome on a desktop.

Its because the YouTube embeds are HTTP and Chrome doesn't want to load insecure content on a secure page by default. If you click the little silver shield in your address bar and tell it load load all content the videos will work.

As a workaround for the youtube issue, assuming you're using Chrome, click on the silver shield icon in the address bar and chose the option to "Load unsafe content". The reason this happens is because GeekHack is HTTPS and the youtube embeds are HTTP.

It seems the option to stop getting notification for a thread is broken. There are threads I've been trying to cancel notification over and over (at least a dozen times or more) and it's just not working (such as the "Price check-What's it worth?" thread). I tried to cancel by using the link for unsubscribe from the email notification, and I tried doing it from the thread itself using the "UnWatch" and "UnNotify" buttons, but nothing is working.

I just checked your profile, and you have the option checked to "Turn notification on when you post or reply to a topic".  Maybe that's overriding your choosing to un-notify?  Try changing that setting and see if it helps.  Profile -> Modify Profile -> Notifications -> Check box at top.

Let me know if that does or does not work.   :thumb:

But that is the behavior I do want, for the threads I do want to be updated on. So should I turn notification off in my profile completely and then use each thread's individual "watch" and "notify" buttons? Will that work, or will the profile setting end up overriding again and I don't notifications for threads I do want to be notified about?

And one more thing. I'm constantly getting notifications for posts that are really old, as if the notification system is malfunctioning and keep sending me notifications from weeks ago, even if there have been dozens of new posts since then, or that I've already read all those newer posts. What's going on with that?

I have the setting turned off at the global level (in profile) and just use individual thread settings, with no issues.  I think that the global setting only overrides the thread settings when it's turned on.  If I'm correct about that, then it's a quirk that seems a bit odd.  Or maybe there's a reason/logic I'm missing.  :)  But I'd give it a try and see what happens.  I've been using it this way my whole time here and I always receive the notifications that I should.

Wondering about options here...

Can the outgoing mail queue be dumped to at least reset it to today?

Can everyone's notification be forced to "daily updates only" until end of this month?

Those people watching the clackvent thread want to reply immediately anyway, so by the time they're notified it's too late.

Can you turn off notifications for a particular set of threads regardless of user settings?

Thanks.

Unfortunately, there are currently no built in options to fix this in a way you've suggested.  :(  Long term, I think it would be nice to have any of the three options you've suggested as a way to make things smoother in the future.  Unfortunately, with this Clack sale ending in a week and a half, it will be over before we get something coded to resolve it.  That said, we'll see if there's any way to work something into the system for future site-crippling events such as this.   :))

We all browse GH differently, so maybe this won't give you the answer you're looking for, but have you tried Watching the threads you're interested in?  That feature still functions properly within the scope of the website here (since it doesn't use the email feature), and will show updates to topics you're interested in.  If that doesn't satisfy your needs, let me know what you're looking for (other than emails  :-X - sorry!) and maybe there is a feature that does.   :thumb:   I know this isn't the ideal solution you're looking for, but hopefully we can find something that helps.  :)

It has to do with "insecure content".

Thanks.  You'd think the browser would put a placeholder there that says "click to active flash" like I get on the game sites...

Didn't notice the little shield up in the url field.

PNG is lossless quality and supports transparency, while JPEG is lossy and in particular hates reds (they compress terribly, not sure about pinks). JPEG at maximum quality isn't so bad though depending on the image, but PNG will preserve the original faithfully.

Unless you're trying to say the original was a JPEG, and the forum re-compressed it, yet merely changing the file extension preserved the original quality. That would be something worth changing on the forum if the case.

That's pretty much exactly what I'm saying lol, I saved the original as a high quality .jpg to make the file size as small as possible, because I'm nice like that but it would then be re-compressed when uploading it as an avatar, you can see in my post the original .jpg... but when i opened that jpg on my machine and then resaved it as a png and uploaded it, it had non of the compression...

How is your internet connection?  When I moved into this house the cable was crap and the connection dropped out every few minutes.  GH was acting very much as you describe.  During an upgrade on the street Telstra replaced all the cables, and now it is much better, and GH is behaving very well.  In fact the only problems I had recently were related to the Radlenac.

This has been reported by a few people, myself included.  There was some suspicion that it was particular members whose posts could not be quoted, perhaps as a result of unexpected or Unicode characters in their username, signature or even post.

Yet to be confirmed.

It works fine on mobile and I disabled TPT just in case. It only happens on my home connection, not even when I log in on an outside computer, only at home even with different PCs/laptops hooked up via wifi or hardwire.

But again, it's not effecting mobile using the same wifi. I am absolutely baffled.

If you quote something (or quote a quote of a quote etc.) that has a picture, smileys don't work.  To get around this, I usually just right click the smiley and go to "copy image URL" and embed it using [img] tags.

That happens sometimes.

Sometimes it seems to be a problem quoting one user's posts.

Other times it almost seems random.

Someone said that if you middle click the "Quote" link to open the reply in a new tab, it works every time.  I have yet to encounter an unquotable post to try that.

I'm still using 4.9.5 because after that version they totally screwed everything up with the user interface.

The lastest (4.15.5) works fine (on Lollipop).

Judging by how often they changed the UI in the last half a year, it looks like they don't have any sense for interface design and seem clueless trying to get rid of those negative reviews. Makes me sad.

GH's SEO seems to be broken? No Geekhack topics show up if you google: ________ geekhack
It has to be typed as    site:geekhack.org _____________ for topics to show up.

For example:

site:geekhack.org cherry mx switch lubrication guide

vs

cherry mx switch lubrication guide geekhack
geekhack.org cherry switch lube guide (same thing, no GH thread shows up)

mkawa, it's also on the 'classic' scheme.  or w/e the orange and black one is called

EDIT:

I'm seeing it on chrome as well.

firefox developer edition v41 and w/e the latest chrome is.  windows 8.1


it looks like the youtube player isn't self-closing its div tags properly...

EDIT2:

also...there are TWO 'instances' of the youtube player?  each youtube player uses the same ID twice.  so there are 4 instances of the same ID being used.

....


can cpt or a mod edit the post and remove the player and see if that changes anything?
Title: Re: Bug Reports
Post by: mkawa on Fri, 03 July 2015, 18:08:36
yes, the way the original code was set up overlays the initial play button on the youtube preview, then fetches the youtube video and layers it on top of the previews. some of this is done with jquery library methods that have been changed in recent versions of jquery.

that's a minor race condition in the db queries. i suspect we need to tighten up the transaction settings a bit.

it looks like it has something to do with the all display code.

I'm seeing some really weird formatting errors.  At first I thought it was my internet connection, which plays up sometimes in wet weather, but it is happening consistently.

For example: https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=69665.msg1673733#msg1673733

Looks like the following in Chrome and Firefox on OS X:

The "new posts" icon is not disappearing for me in a consistent way.

If I open Classifieds, for example, it shows a dozen threads with new posts.

If I click the "mark read" button the page reloads, but the new posts icons are still there.  If I force-reload the page, they disappear.

Same if I try to view one of the threads with new posts.  For example if I go into off topic and click on the "new post" icon on the "what's bothering you" thread, I see the first new post (by beehatch).  If I go back to off topic, the thread is still flagged as having new posts, and if I click the icon again I go to the same "new" post, even though I have already viewed it.  If I force-reload the off topic index page, the icons disappear.

This is with Firefox on OSX.

to continue what Rowdy was saying, when I post in a section (like Media) it wont say that it's 'read' and will still list the 'newest' post as one before... for example in media atm I just posted in 'what you got in the mail' yet it still says the newest post is in 'post your topre keyboard' and that I've not read it

the stale pages and spy have been resolved. there are some issues with queues not being emptied quickly enough that i think are database transaction issues -- we're submitting more database queries and modification than previously by an order of magnitude, but the database is still running on a single process

the layout issues are complex, and weren't due to a code change, which is extremely odd. we're also currently without a dev environment, so it's difficult to make large changes as they can't be tested before deployment. i'm fixing those things as i have time, but in the meantime, weirdness will happen. that said, i have repro of the layout errors, so i shouldn't need more reports to debug. again, it's the lack of a development environment that's holding rknize and i back at the moment.

threads arent being marked as read again

this is happening on and off


I click on a thread from my unread topics, read it, then hit the back page button on my mouse and instead of it disappearing it is still there. This didnt use to happen. Now when I got back to unread topics I have to refresh the page. Is this just me?

Nope, and, coincidentally, it just happened to me on this thread.

hello yes i'd like to report a bug

some pages don't load properly when i open them from external links, such as google searches or links within posts

they are loading correctly when i open them by clicking page buttons within threads as well as when i open the first page of a thread from the index

i am using windows 7 and google chrome

also threads and subforums are not updating that they're unread if i'm the latest post in them

thank you very much

When I browse through Unread or Watched, if the last replay is very recent (2-3 minutes) the topic won't get marked as read. If I come back to it minutes later it will. But if during the 2-3 minutes after the reply I go several time to this thread it will never get marked as read, only after I reach this "invisible time" limit.
I'm not sure if I'm being clear.

Although if I browse a thread from spy, I can click it a second after a new reply, it will be marked read.

sth's blog again (https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=74337.msg1843391#new) thread is really screwing with the formatting.

Top of the page starts like this:

[attachimg=1]

Halfway down the page this happens:

[attachimg=2]

The bottom of the page looks like:

[attachimg=3]

In Firefox on OSX.

This was happening in a lot of threads after the recent rebuild, but I haven't really seen any occurrences for a while, but sth's thread seems to trigger something bad.

Occasionally new replies to posts won't mark as read to me. I'll go to "Show new replies to your posts", see a new posting, read the most recent posting, but then if I click on "show new replies to your posts" again, that thread will still show up as unread, even if nothing new has been posted. This only happens very occasionally, but it does.

They've ruined tapatalk. I'm running an older version on Android because I couldn't stand the newer one. And I also was a paid pro user before they did away with it.

On the topic of notifications, mine seem to be working on tapatalk but it is odd how email pm notifications still seem to come in batches.

When I browse through Unread or Watched, if the last replay is very recent (2-3 minutes) the topic won't get marked as read. If I come back to it minutes later it will. But if during the 2-3 minutes after the reply I go several time to this thread it will never get marked as read, only after I reach this "invisible time" limit.
I'm not sure if I'm being clear.

Although if I browse a thread from spy, I can click it a second after a new reply, it will be marked read.

GL



Still happening.
Hmm I've had this happen but I never put two and two together with them all being very recent.

FWIW, I started noticing this when GH first came back up after switching servers.

This is correct it started after GH came back online.

it happens at work and at home, both connections seem fine... I'll post a reply or send a pm (it happens pretty randomly) and the page will just hang... refresh and it's either posted/pm'd or reloaded the reply box...

We have a new member with a Cyrillic name.

https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=79139

Looks like the forum software doesn't like his name as it has shrunk the font size down as it would for a much longer name, although this member's name is fairly short.

Is this a side-effect of Unicode characters looking like two ASCII characters or something?

This afternoon I was still getting Clackvent emails trickling in.  That is for a sale that took place, say, around 10 hours ago.

Update: I JUST received an email notification (for a Clackvent thread update) that was apparently SENT just over 4 days ago.

Date sent: 09-Mar-2016 17:02

Current date (for me): 13-Mar-2016 21:19

Although looking at the SMTP headers suggests that it was processed only very recently, so there's probably a huge mail backlog on the GH server.

It seemed fine yesterday.

Just then, about 1 minute ago, I opened a couple of threads, and one of them showed this phenomenon.

I see the post (https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=80812.msg2168908#msg2168908) as showing up in my profile, but not showing up in the thread (https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=80812.msg2168916#msg2168916). It should be between this post and the previous post.

Any ideas? Did I offend the flipsters and get moderated? Or is it because hipster and flipster rhyme with ripster?

EDIT: investigated it myself and found that my post reappeared after switching from 50 posts per page to 25 posts. I'd say there's something wonky going on, either isolated to that thread or to the 50 posts per page configuration.

And what's even weirder, when on 50 posts per page the 99th post (last on page 2) was dunglefinker, but when on 25 the 99th post was mine (last post on page 4).

Hi Moderator,

Sorry for the super late reply, but I am still getting notified of new messages. I have definitely unsubscribed from everything that is visible to me.

The "Welcome to BroCaps" link you provided says:
"An Error Has Occurred!
The topic or board you are looking for appears to be either missing or off limits to you."

I am not sure how I could have subscribed to that if I can't see or access it. Can you fix this for me?

Cheers!

Weekly Notifications

I still seem to be receiving notifications when I am not subscribed to anything. Can an admin fix this? I have removed everything and there is nothing to 'unnotify'. But every so often I get an e-mail in from geekhack which says '

Hmm, that's peculiar (but may be the source of the issue).  I've just now removed that thread from your notifications, so at this point you are not subscribed to any threads for notifications.  I wonder if the Bro Caps thread was triggering the system to send you a weekly update, despite there not actually being any new content since it's archived?  Do let me know if you continue to receive this weekly summary.

I don't attempt to do some hacking behavior, I just want to speed up my internet,

Some VPNs are automatically blocked because we've had issues with people using them to circumvent bans in the past.

I experience a 'bug' where I get logged out everywhere if I use the logout button in one place (not sure if this is intended behaviour or not). Could that be the explanation?

Have you tried clearing cache, etc.? If that doesn't do it, I'm not certain what would.

So it looks like [img] links are broken period. At least they are if they point to images on my personal website. Is this a problem on GH's end, or a problem with my host provider refusing to serve the image for some reason? This is a new phenomenon, btw.

actual bug report though; when a watched topic gets moved (like from IC to GB) the watch gets removed. I imagine this is because you are essentially creating a new thread just with all the old replies in it?

Edit: OK the old IC thread is still open and yet the GB thread has all the old replies in it  :-\

Is anyone else experiencing this? A row of whitespace is auto added in the Quick Reply text box when writing posts. Deleting the whitespace while composing has no effect and seems to re-add itself.

Been noticing this for a few weeks off and on (not that frequently though as I normally use the full Reply page) but originally thought it was accidental keypresses.

It seems all externally hosted images are being forced to 640px width, regardless of the BBCode used in the post (haven't tested attachments). This was introduced years ago (https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=57871.0) but according to user 18 it was possible to adjust the BBCode dimensions to scale the image.

However it doesn't seem possible now as it's forced back to 640px wide (and 360px high for 16:9 ratio images).

I tried to post a Google form for an IC, and the random url Google gave me happened to contain the word '****'. The filter decided to censor the url replacing part of it with stars so anyone clicking on it got a 404 error. I'm pretty sure the filter should only censor visible text, not links, so this is a bug.

For reference here's the link (https://goo.gl/forms/****qJ9mRY5cUPX02). Click on it with censorship turned off, it works. With censorship turned on (or when logged out in incognito mode) you get a 404.

Google has since given me a new url so it's not urgent for me.

The forum is borking some links.

In the GMK Yellow on Black IC thread (https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=95109.0) there is a link to a Google form.

If you click the link, it takes you to a Rainbow Magicland page.

If you copy/paste the URL that is shown on the page i.e. the goo.gl link, it works.

I disassembled the link URL, which contains the thread and a few other bits and pieces (presumably for link tracking or counting), and they appear the same.

I have to visit a different page (i.e. https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=94265.0) in order to see the site.

Apologies on this, we are working on making the site more resilient to some traffic spikes that were coming in, and Varnish decided to cache a few items we weren't wanting it to cache. I have updated the config for Varnish and am no longer seeing the redirect issue that you are speaking of. We were able to repro, but not again since I've fixed the cache url mapping.

Cheers,

Chrome is reporting a bad cert.

The cert is valid, I think it's just showing up like that due to there being unsecured content on the site (i.e. links to images from outside sites that are unsecured).

Sometimes emojis appear as emojis, but other times they appear broken and appear in their expanded character form. Why does this occur?

It seems to only do it when you quote someone (but not every time).

Been like that for a loooong time.

Not sure if this is a bug or perhaps some weird setting I can't find, but I'm having an issue with email notifications after "X" amount of time. Best I can tell (after months of this) is that if I don't stay active in a thread, I'll stop getting topic notification emails for no apparent reason. Some notes:
In the pic above, I'm getting proper notifications in the top/bottom threads (no "new" icon on the left because I'm reading them) but the middle two I haven't got a notification in weeks. Any ideas/advice appreciated  :thumb:

Best I can tell (after months of this) is that if I don't stay active in a thread, I'll stop getting topic notification emails for no apparent reason. Some notes:
  • Topic still shows I'm set to "Watch/Notify"
  • Threads still show in my Notifications panel. Pic: https://i.imgur.com/2s4Pcp3.jpg
  • Checked they are not going to spam
  • If I post in the topic again with anything, it'll reset the timer and work again for a few weeks

Hmmmm. You have notification emails set to come immediately, but only for the first unread reply. Can you confirm for me if you need to actually post in the thread, or will it start sending notifications again if you just catch up on the unread posts?

It's possible that notification emails are sporadically getting lost, and since you haven't gotten the notification to go back and read the thread, it stops sending new emails.

Interesting idea, I haven't really paid attention to if just viewing it fixes it. That said, I'll test it ASAP. I found the two most recent threads in my Notifications section that I'm not getting emails for (both of which posted on today) and simply viewed the final page, making sure the checkbox for new posts went away on the Notifications page. I'll wait a day or two and see if messages come back. If not, I'll make a post and confirm thee show up after that. Thanks!  :thumb:

After some testing it seems the threads that I catch up on DO start notifying again, regardless of me posting or not. So perhaps the ones that I'm not getting any more mean that I missed the first notification email and it doesn't send more because it's set to "only for first unread reply". I figure if I set it to Instantly that'll override that and I'll get notifications for everything, regardless of if I checked it or not, is that right? Perhaps that's the easiest workaround.

Edit: Confirmed, setting it to "Immediately" causes them all to show up again. Apparently the other setting (first new reply only) gives only one chance for it to alert me. So while it doesn't explain where those mails are going (Gmail spam is clean), I'm happy to be getting updates. Thanks!

Glad to hear it's working now -- not entirely sure what's going on with the missing emails, but will pass it along to someone who might know.

Hi,

If found a really wierd bug. When I log into geekhack via Firefox, it says that i've been banned indefinitely. However, I can login via chrome and other browsers.

I dont know the reason why i've been banned. I dont think I've done anything that violates the rules.

You might try clearing the cache on your firefox browser and see if that helps.

It's not really your browser but rather the IP address used at that time.  I've checked the ban log.  The IP range you used intersected with one we banned in the past for a persistent member with a lot of alt accounts.  Sorry for the inconvenience.

My post counter is broken! For some reason it's stopped incrementing. I can go to Profile > Show Posts and my oldest post is clearly numbered 29 (as of this writing), but the counter under my name is stuck at 23, and doesn't change if I make another post! This is a problem for me because it means I can't make any threads anywhere in the Marketplace. Is this a sitewide problem or some problem effecting only my account for some reason? Or am I misunderstanding something about how the counter works? Thanks.

Edit: Okay it worked that time for some reason. So maybe posts on Off Topic don't count or something.

Artisan Services, Off Topic, New Members, and Marketplace are the four that don't count iirc.

Not sure if it's a bug specifically, but I've noticed a number of times while viewing the site that one or more of my CPUs is maxed out and Firefox appeared to be the primary culprit.  I've also noticed images taking quite a while to finish loading, which even with a few dozen images for a given IC/GB thread shouldn't take more than a second or two with my 100GB connection.  Most recently, I only had geekhack and two other already loaded pages open, so I can't imagine it was a load issue.  I haven't seen this happen with any other site. 

Is there anything to the way the site is coded that would cause this or possibly something else unique about how GH interacts with FF?

FWIW I use Firefox all the time to surf GH and have not noticed any behaviour such as you describe.
