The reason why messages don't load is unknown so far. It might be a race condition caused by someone sending a message and someone loading simultaneously.

Juju

Oh yay race conditions we sure love those ones jk those are the hardest to debug and most evil bugs you can ever encounter.

Feature suggestion: Make IRC logs log join/parts/nick changes/kick/ban/mode change messages. Else it's hard to figure out when those happened.

There is a bug with the online list: It isn't always in-sync with the actual online list on IRC. For example, right now WalrusIRC shows W-803 as online, but on IRC it isn't there.


EDIT: Nvm it's there, but it lacks ops. Maybe WIRC should show + for voiced users and @ for ops? It would be less confusing. Showing users from Telegram and forums would also be nice.

@Juju some CSS issues makes text hidden to the right x.x


Streetwalrus

It's because text overflow isn't handled properly. Gotta fix that but last time I've tried I couldn't find a good way to do it. :/

DJ Omnimaga

Isn't it only a matter of making sure that word wrap is enabled and setting the max width to 100%, or is is made more difficult by the fact we're using an iframe?

Or could WalrusIRC be made so that long words are automatically broken, like ticalc.org does? That way, when people post massive URLs or long code, this wouldn't happen.


Also, we still have the problem of timestamps being hidden on mobile view.

Streetwalrus

Nah because it uses a table and tables are hell.

DJ Omnimaga

Oh right. I wonder if there could be a way to get rid of them...

Even SMF 2.0 uses them and it annoys me sometimes. If I ever made my own site again I would probably try to do everything possible to avoid using them.

Streetwalrus

Well, they are good where appropriate, and here, unless we switched to a more traditional layout, tables are still pretty good.

DJ Omnimaga

THey seem to make it extremely hard to design website styles, though, especially in mobile mode. >.<

This has nothing to do with being mobile. You get the exact same issue on pc with a narrow window or with longer text.
I remember what the problem is now, it's impossible to limit the width of cells so that the total width of the table is 100%.
Edit: found a solution, works in Chrome, gotta test it in Firefox.
Edit2: Meh, word-break: break-word doesn't work in Firefox.

DJ Omnimaga

Darn, that seems so complicated. Would there be a way around this, such as juju switching to divs instead of tables? I don't get why words just won't wrap automatically like in forum posts. This problem also happens on CW theme in various sections on mobile or with small width, such as board stats going off bounds

DJ Omnimaga

Is it me or sometimes when I type text it sends by itself while I type it? It's very rare and only happens on mobile. o.o
