Problems with forums on iPhone: RESOLVED

Post by DMGnome » Tue Jun 14, 2011 10:08 am

I've noticed one minor and one extremely minor problem:
-I don't think edits are properly recorded if you're making them from a phone.
-Code displays are apparently cut off if they're too long (happened to me here.)

I'm using an iPhone 3G, Safari. Priority on these, especially that second bug, is low, but I thought it would be best to mention them.

Does that only happen in this forum or in any other phpBB one as well?

I don't know about code tags, but editing seems to be recorded properly on other forums.

I guess point one isn't really a problem viewing the forum, just a weirdness about editing posts. And point two is a viewing problem, but it's a very rare case; not many people use code tags.

Additional poking reveals Select All and then copy/paste gets everything inside code tags. And a quick edit to the OP regarding the "viewing" bit shows that editing is now properly recorded, apparently. WEIRD. (And phooey, my magic undetectable typo eraser has now vanished.)

[Edited to check recording, again.]

[EDIT: apparently it doesn't record? Or it only records title changes, or edits to the OP, or something? Man I don't even know.]

[Edit mark 3: anyone with a different phone want to screw around with editing posts?]

Any edits you make before someone makes a post after yours are treated as if part of the original post.

Truncation of very long posts happened to me before on an android. Doesn't have anything to do with the code tag.
I think I encountered this in the PM-history. Not too much of a bother though.

Mmm, that's the editing question answered. Unexpectedly forgiving, I guess.

As for the code thing, it's not a truncation of the entire post, just the bit in code tags. It appears to show a maximum of eight lines, and then cuts off the rest without giving a scroll-down bar. But as stated, that's an extremely minor issue.
