Title: Bugs with the site.
Post by: CKH4 on February 10, 2015, 01:03:23 am
I've noticed a few bugs recently right now I can only remember 2 but I'll probably remember eventually.
WalrusIRC won't show up. This happens when I am logged in for a long time, I'm guessing that this an issue with SMF.
I also can't vote on polls (only tried one so it might be isolated to that poll).

As an added issue. Gmail has started calling the forum updates spam.

Strange, I thought that the WIRC issue had been fixed this morning. Cumred had the same problem and it was caused by permission issues for members between 100 and 499 posts.

As for polls I'll need to check again, but it might be a similar issue. Have you tried recently?


Regarding the Gmail issue it is probably something we can't do about, due to the repeated nature of post notifications via e-mail. The best you can do is to click "Not spam".

EDIT: I might have found the issue with polls. Can you try again? Also, let me know if you still can't see WIRC. Ideally, post a screenshot of what happens.

WIRC is just a blank div. Logging out and logging back in fixed it. Also voting is fixed, thanks.

Ah I see. What browser do you use and which version and OS? I never had loading issues with WIRC in Opera nor Chrome, but at the local shopping mall, when I use their wi-fi it says I need to login to chat on WalrusIRC, even when I am logged in.

Huh, interesting bug. Android chrome and windows 8.1 chrome.
Title: Re: Bugs with the site.
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on February 10, 2015, 02:09:53 am
Ah ok. I myself had the login issue I mentionned on Chrome Android.

I'm on Chrome mobile (Screw FX mobile, you're drunk) mobile and never had such problems.

Yeah I can login fine anywhere. It's just that even when logged in, I can't chat if I use the shopping mall wi-fi. :P I guess it's a bug in WalrusIRC causing problems detecting if the user is logged in. IIRC this happens sometimes the first time someone registers and make his first post.
Title: Re: Bugs with the site.
Post by: Snektron on February 10, 2015, 05:24:32 pm
Maybe it's possible that the mall stops the IRC connection?
Title: Re: Bugs with the site.
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on February 10, 2015, 05:27:19 pm
Not sure. I mostly connect via there, my home connection or 3G. Maybe unlike the site itself WalrusIRC cannot handle such change in connection?
Title: Re: Bugs with the site.
Post by: CKH4 on February 10, 2015, 06:08:24 pm
Next time try going to the full screen client. That worked even when the embedded one didn't for me.
Title: Re: Bugs with the site.
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on February 10, 2015, 08:12:51 pm
Do you mean the one via the green title bar or the one available by clicking Walrii in the white bar? Because the one in the green bar is a different shoutbox called OmnomIRC (which WalrusIRC is dependent on)
Title: Re: Bugs with the site.
Post by: Snektron on February 10, 2015, 08:17:23 pm
I think he means walrusirc.codewalr.us
Title: Re: Bugs with the site.
Post by: CKH4 on February 10, 2015, 08:55:44 pm

Yep, that's what I meant. You might want to link to that in the top bar so that more people know that it exists.
Title: Re: Bugs with the site.
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on February 10, 2015, 11:11:16 pm
I added Omnom instead because some people might have troubles getting WIRC to work, especially since it's incomplete. There's also a limit of links and text you can put in the title bar. Maybe juju could make the extra links more visible, though, such as an halo around Walrii or changing Walrii to something like an expanding icon.
Title: Re: Bugs with the site.
Post by: Juju on February 10, 2015, 11:25:45 pm
Yeah, a shadow, that would probably be a good idea.
Title: Re: Bugs with the site.
Post by: CKH4 on February 10, 2015, 11:28:19 pm
That would look really cool in my opinion as I had lost the options without realizing that the walrus was a link.

Post by: DJ Omnimaga on September 03, 2015, 07:02:46 pm
Wut? I wonder if it has to do with the tutorial sub-forum addition? I think something went wrong with SSI, though.
Title: Re: Bugs with the site.
Post by: Streetwalrus on September 03, 2015, 08:46:09 pm
What the hell. O.O I hope it's not the hack I did in the glib tutorial thread. :P
Title: Re: Bugs with the site.
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on September 03, 2015, 09:30:32 pm
Hm what kind of hack did you do? Because that could possibly do it. Have you changed server stuff today?

Otherwise, you should perhaps check server access logs in case a third-party found a security breach or guessed our passwords
Title: Re: Bugs with the site.
Post by: Streetwalrus on September 03, 2015, 09:32:05 pm
I just shuffled a few post IDs to change the post order, that's all. I doubt this would break it. It looks like it's a problem with simple portal.
Title: Re: Bugs with the site.
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on September 03, 2015, 09:35:35 pm
Oh, that could do it. I had bad experiences with topic ID changes before. Could you maybe revert the change to see what happens, or possibly delete the topic then repost it? In the past, when I did such change, some posts would vanish or other weird stuff would happen.

Also in case you haven't noticed, post IDs jumped by 100000, which is one consequence of swapping IDs by hand (on the Omni forums I had this happen with topic IDs too)
Title: Re: Bugs with the site.
Post by: Streetwalrus on September 03, 2015, 09:43:44 pm
Testing something.
Edit : it works ! Thanks DJ. Everything's back in order now. I had to to more voodoo stuff with the message IDs. :P
Title: Re: Bugs with the site.
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on September 03, 2015, 10:07:42 pm
Yay! The problem is SSI Recent Topics (which the Active topics page uses) will display all topics in which the last 400 posts or so were posted. However, the manipulation you did led to a big gap between ID 21400 and 121400 or so, so it checked new posts from 121000 upwards, which is why it was empty.
Title: Re: Bugs with the site.
Post by: Travis on October 15, 2015, 01:53:06 am
This was sort of odd (but minor): I received an email notification that I was mentioned, and it pointed to the right post, but the wording is a bit strange:
Quote
DJ Omnimaga mentioned you in the post "StarTrek, you have been mentioned at a post in CodeWalrus", you can view the post at https://codewalr.us/index.php?msg=23900
Clearly, the title of the post isn't “StarTrek, you have been mentioned at a post in CodeWalrus” :P Unless I'm missing something here.

I get that sometimes as well.

Post by: DJ Omnimaga on October 15, 2015, 03:07:33 am
Wow I have an idea of why this might happen (perhaps when that post mentions more than 1 person at a time?), but it's definitively a strange bug. I'll have to poke the author of the plugin about it.

Post by: Lionel Debroux on February 23, 2016, 06:47:27 am
A bit of a necropost, but I wasn't sure I should post this in the "todo list & updates discussion".

I noticed that in http://codewalr.us/1139/32818 , the smilies at the beginning of the post were turned to images, as they should because I didn't check the box not to - but then a couple smilies near the end of the post weren't.

Interesting glitch. I know there are issues with Quotes causing bbcode afterwards to not work properly, and this also happened on Invisionfree. Not sure if SMF is aware of it, though (I'll have to Google and check their bug list)

To embed youtube videos, just paste the link, it'll get converted automatically.

it's deprecated. We didn't remove it yet because the site plugin manager is broken right now.

Yeah, when searching specifically. Not sure why really. I think it has something to do with the fact we have custom navigation links.

Nah, the search used a separate button for search, which looks different.

You should also show karma changes, similar to a mention.


Maybe it's possible that the mall stops the IRC connection?

Yes, it probably does. Most public wifi's have filters that stop you from doing work on their wifi (idk why), and for some reason WIRC is considered work. I object. When WIRC is open, I get zero work done. (for example, I have math hw I should be doing rn)

Yeah. Hopefully they just introduced a temoorary bug and not an API changrle. That would suck.

Also the problem didn't happen for mr so far in Opera/Chromium nor Mobile Chrome

umm.... Bless you?

After I did some research (aka asking the guys on Cemetech and PT_ is awesome for answering) and a netsplit is

[P_T] Then a connection between 2 servers broke, which means the IRC thing stuff is split in half
Title: Re: Bugs with the site.
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on April 28, 2017, 12:41:33 am
EFnet and IRC in general dates back in the late 80's, so I can totally understand that people don't know much about it nowadays :P
Title: Re: Bugs with the site.
Post by: p2 on May 01, 2017, 05:42:37 pm
they're like audio connector and USB2: there's a thousand better things, but everyone still uses them since they simply work and u can connect them everywhere ^^
we have our IRC, connected to the WIRC (Web-interface for the IRC), then the Telegram chat that is connected to it, we could even Link the minecraft server chat to an IRC if we wanted to ^^
but if one of the servers connecting this system breaks down... then we get some problems >.< xD
Title: Re: Bugs with the site.
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on May 03, 2017, 02:22:36 am
Well, most of the TI community continued using EFnet since the 90's because the established IRC channels have remained there during their entire existence. And most people prefer connecting to just 1 server, not to mention many clients are setup to automatically cycle between EFnet servers, so over time the newer IRC channels decided to set up shop on EFnet for maximum visibility.
