Still a problem with the images.  Eg in the Dinner thread from 12/5 there are some large format photos and others that had been large and now are thumbnails.

Yes, I was searching for alcatra.  The term was not found on the page returned by google search:

https://forums.egullet.org/topic/123876-cook-off-1-cassoulet/?page=6

 

As determined by the Windows Explorer find feature and my diligent reading of the page.

 

I see, it should have linked to page 7, since the result was really here. I'm not sure what's going on there.

I also see the spiralizer thread apparently out of order.  I think it's because when gfweb went back to edit the last post in that thread, 13 hrs after the original post, the system recognizes it internally as a new post and sorts the thread in the new content stream by that edit date.  I believe this only happens when it's the last, or most recent post in a thread that is edited.

But that's just a guess and I could be totally wrong :D!

@Kerry Beal, this is exactly what's happening. Pretty much everything here now sorts by "last edited time" rather than "last post time". It's a "feature", ya see?! ¬¬

Not sure if it is related but often (but not always) when I click on "Go to first unread post", I am taken to the top of the page before the page that has the first unread post.  And this does not seem to have anything to do with post editing, I think.

Yes, this seems to be a very common problem, I've got Invision Support looking at it right now. Unfortunately, they think the fix is complicated, so it may take a few days.

Hi Chris, 

 

I was checking the sous vide index thread and unfortunately most of the links have disappeared and is now just appearing as text.  Is it just for me or are others having same problem?

It's not just you: I'll report the bug to Invision, thanks.

there is a bug on some threads that takes you to the second to the newest page, rather than to new contents i.e. clicking on the blue star

 

on the confections! thread, clicking on the blue star takes me to page 11, not 12 nor just to the new content on pp 12

 So I wanted to respond to this post (Above) but the reply space already contained thisimage.png

 

 I have found on a number of occasions photographs but I chose not to load previously still in this reply space.

Anna, that is a "feature" of the new editor: it remembers your last non-posted post. This protects you against internet glitches and/or accidentally navigating away from your reply, at the expense of having to delete the contents when you really meant to move away from it. I've toyed with the idea of having a "Cancel post" button added next to Submit Reply that would clear this out in the cases where you mean to discard it.

 I appreciate the reasoning for the feature but sometimes the user really does know what he or she is attempting and a "cancel"  button would not be such a bad idea.  It is always, I guess, a balancing act.  Carry-on.  Your efforts to improve the user interface are greatly appreciated  even if I am not always fully in agreement.

I came here to ask exactly what Anna asked. A "cancel" button would be a very helpful feature if the software is going to "remember" everything that goes in the box that isn't posted. I quoted someone in order to reply to what they said, accidentally left the page while doing something else and on return, not knowing it would "remember", quoted them again. I thought maybe it was a glitch that it showed the quote twice so I refreshed the page and tried again. Now the text box is full of repeat quotes that I can't get rid of. I find that feature much more an annoyance than a help as is.

Edited because I typed "can" when I meant "can't"...

The trick to removing a quote is to move your mouse over it until the crosshairs appears in the upper left corner, click the crosshairs, then press "Delete".

Both of the above were covered on egdev. There was also some variation btw being able to simply delete an undesired quote and needing to call up the contextual submenu. The "backing over"/manual clearing/deletion of what is retained (and not-yet-posted) in the editor was also discussed, and the "cancel" button was brought up - I would like to reiterate my suggestion that it be implemented, with (as suggested on egdev) an intervening dialog box asking "Are You Sure?" before execution of the wiping of the editor.

I think a cancel button would be very helpful,  and Hiuray's suggestion of an intervening dialogue box asking "Are you sure" is a very good idea.

Did something happen to the dates on the posts? Since December 3 seems only day is given and not the date.

That's just the date display format Invision has chosen to use (at least, if I am understanding your question). It says things like "today", "yesterday", "Sunday", etc. When it's more than a week old it should show the actual date.

Status Update Re: Streams

 

Right now streams are not behaving correctly: they are returning only a subset of the results they should. Invision is looking into the issue, but I don't have an ETA on the fix. Believe me, I am as frustrated as you are!

The old images now all display as thumbnail-sized images in the posts themselves, at least on my browsers on an iMac on OS 10.10.5.  Is this the intended default?  Previously they were scaled to a larger display size within the posts.

This was a "feature" I didn't know about when we upgraded, but it turns out it can be fixed after the fact: so, the database is in the process of upgrading the size of those images, and should be done later today.

Hmmm. Perhaps it was always thus.  I recall "today" and "yesterday" but I certainly don't recall it going back a whole week without an actual date attached to the post. Ah well.
