REGARDING SITE UPGRADES, AND BUGS

Hi guys, as you can probably tell the site went down for a bit and went through some upgrades.

This was being planned but then it sort of went ahead without warning, so apologies for that.

It’s been nearly a year since it was upgraded, hence there might be some compatibility issues and a few bugs.

If you happen to find any bugs, please let us know here.

Current things we are aware of are:

  • Theme issues - I am going to work on restoring something as similar as possible to the old theme but I’ll be doing it more from scratch. Bold is broken arm but I will be addressing this in the theme update
  • the text box being kinda insanely tall on mobile this sadly is a discourse feature
  • Highlight to quote still being kinda broken FIXED AHAHAH
  • Emojis only count for 1 character for minimum character limits (Is this a bug or a feature?) (it’s a bug)
  • Missing category icons from the top of the page (died in update, need to recode this)
  • New notifications close a currently open notification bar
  • can get notifications from watched topics or PMs even when there is no new activity
  • reply notifications from watched topics or PMs still appear even when currently on said topic or PM and up to date
  • transparent pfps have a solid color background on ghost theme > ghost theme is not gonna be perma if you wanna use that hot mess it’s on you
  • very finicky bug where the interactable box of UI elements gets transposed downwards while the text editor is open
  • Saving topic drafts doesn’t save titles and tags
  • notification duplication

On the upside, it’s definitely more responsive?
