Talk about forum bugs/usability issues here -- post-Vanilla-2.2 upgrade edition
A couple things I've noticed so far:
1. Can't seem to tab to the Post Comment button after writing a comment. Tabbing through the buttons goes through the several things beneath the comment box, but then skips over Post Comment.
2. Twitter links get auto-parsed into embedded tweets. Is this a feature we want? This is an open question.
Also, the quote button in the tool bar does nothing, and neither this thread nor the other thread (and presumably all threads with no replies) show no number of new posts.
Lies, it works perfectly fine. (A function it used was removed in jquery 1.9, so I just readded a version of it)
Because Vanilla doesn't consider the first post a "post" (or as they call it, a "comment"); it's a "discussion". The only way to tell, by what they think you should tell, is the topic will be bolded instead of normal font. I applied my own core hack to make it count the discussion before because new post counts were extremely broken in 2.1 anyway; I could reimplement the hack for the counting of a discussion into the number of new posts if that's better.
I guess if I really wanted to I could add BBcode for a hyperlink to it instead. That would also turn off auto-embedding.
Still doesn't work in Waterfox 49.0.2.
Also, same goes with Save Comment after editing a comment. I don't think there was ever a core hack fixing this in 2.1 anyway.
Probably worked on the default editor since that's just a textarea, so it tabs to the next form item instead of the next link, which is post comment (fun fact: preview and save draft aren't actually buttons at all; they're just styled links)
Fatal Error in PHP.trigger_error();
The error occurred on or near: /chroot/home/ijbm/itjustbugsme.com/html/forums/library/database/class.database.php
Also, I have force redirects in place to https://; they just don't seem to want to always work.
(Unless it's referring to Uhuru Kenyatta.)
With the way the hosting panel is setup, I can't actually do that as far as I know; that's why I attempted force redirects to https instead.
Also it's worth noting that Vanilla 2.3 dropped a couple months ago, so I'll probably be upgrading the forum again sometime soon-ish.
Quote tags for the other person's username have been fixed, and it seems that Vanilla handles BBCode and HTML together more smoothly than previous versions have. PM system also seems to work. This is stuff that I've seen on a private test board that UE put up.
Let me know if there are any features you want us to test before release.
It's currently taken up by the user features/links/etc panel column, but how would you imagine a different arrangement?
