Hmm.. I was able to get to them by searching for "the full stack" and checking the "Series Posts" radio button.
Wow, that's a lot Geoff is home sick today so I'll respond in his absence.
- browsers spell checking doesn't work
The reason for this, so I understand, is that browser spell checkers look for <textarea />s on the page and apply their functionality to that. As I explained before, in my long-winded description of how TinyMCE works, we do have <textarea />s on the page initially but TinyMCE hides these and creates it's own control in an iframe. The browser's spell checker can't reach or isn't aware of these new elements apparently. It is unfortunate but until we have a better rich text editing option (and we're open to suggestions btw), this is what we're going with.
- reply and quote buttons doesn't work sometimes
- The comment control doesn't load (http://i54.tinypic.com/fatny8.png)
- Long comments have a bad scroll bug - might be fixed now, i don't know
This comment of mine is pretty darn long and I don't see any scrolling problems I'm using Chrome though. I do remember IE9 Beta having an issue where if you scrolled down the page it would start repeating everything? Something like that? I think they fixed that bug in RC thoughso let us know if it does come up again.
- copy and paste is buggy in many ways (i'm using the keyboard shortcuts: ctrl+c, ctrl+v)
- 1. pasting in a long comment makes the whole page scroll down
- 2. Pasted text get different formatting ( see my previous post for example )
Interesting. #1 is by design. It's an option in TinyMCE to have the box grow as you type so that you can see what you're typing without having to scroll the box down. #2 sounds like a bug though so I will log that one as well.
- Comments lose formatting (even when the toolbar is visible)
Can you send a screenshot of this?
- Breaking up a quote doesn't work (using *snip*) Make it easier to split up quotes
Good suggestion, I'll put this in as a feature request.
- Lines are to far apart from each other (http://i54.tinypic.com/2zqxa1h.png)
Hmm... the stylesheet should be the same within the text editor as when you hit submit and view it on the page. It is pulling the exact same stylesheet I believe (global.css). I'll speak with Geoff when he's back to make sure things haven't changed. Looks the same to me though, just anecdotally. If you hit Enter it creates a new paragaph, if you hit Shift+Enter it creates a line break (<br />).
- Pressing submit button takes you back to the first post in the thread
Yes, that's true. This relates to what happens when you click the little half circle on the forum thread list (take me to my last read post). Currently that is difficult for us because of the paging. It would be simple to send someone to /forum/thread#lastreadpost if we didn't have paging but since we do, we'd have to do a query on each thread to see what page the last read post exists on and that would bring down the perf on the forum thread list page. We have other ideas on how to accomplish this such as running the query only after someone actually clicks on that circle (which I think is what we're going to go with) but just haven't implemented it yet. Hey, we've been a little busy with adding Events and whatnot But once we have that functionality, we can apply the same logic to when someone submits a new post. Let's say the last post is at the end of page 2 and your new post ends up being the first post on page 3 instead, we'd need to figure that out. Anyway, it's already a bug in our system so I'll just add to it to use the same logic for creating new posts.
No, it was weird.. in one post there were a bunch of <h5 /> tags that were not well formed. I don't know how those got there so I assume someone put them in on purpose (not much we can do about that). There does seem to be an issue where TinyMCE likes to surround [quote /]'s with paragraph tags which ends up in invalid markup such as <p>[ quote]Some quote here.</p><p>A new paragraph here[/ quote]</p> But that doesn't seem to break the page.
A fix was pushed up yesterday for the control which should get rid of the focus bugs that were happening in IE. We have removed the dropdown that was grabbing focus away from the textbox because it seemed unnecessary anyway. Please let us know if any of you are still having issues with the control and if so, do you still see that Format dropdown list in the toolbar?
@leeappdalecom: On the site, you can change your display name but not your username. To change your display name, you'd click the "Profile" link at the top near "Sign Out" and then click "edit profile". If you really want to change your username and not just your display name, you can submit a request to the Contact Us page and if it's possible, they will hook you up.
Forgot about this part. The submit button refuses to work? I haven't heard of this happening... we're not doing any funny business with the submit button besides validation.. you're not getting any error messages when this happens? Any consistencies you can mention when it happens? Always in Firefox and not IE?
Broken spell checker - We don't have a spell checker on the control that I know of so it must be the Firefox spell checker you're referring to? In what way is it broken?
When I said we've been in contact with TinyMCE, that probably did sound vague but not because I'm trying to be political but because I'm not the particular developer who contacted them or have been working on it I remember Geoff mentioning he had either emailed someone at TinyMCE or filed a bug but I'm not sure what the outcome was. I just replied to you because he was on break for the week and I didn't want you to think the problem was being ignored.
Can you do me a favor and look at the example on the TinyMCE site (link below) in Firefox and IE and tell me if you're having any of the same problems with those examples? I'm mostly curious about the negative margin and no toolbar issue that you posted the images about since I haven't heard of anyone else having those issues.
