TOPIC: WebUI?

WebUI? 1 year 2 months ago #1

Folks,
is it only me, or changes this website's layout every other day? Last variant shows no borders round posts, Preview is broken etc.

Honestly, i rue every minute someone invests tinkering with this nonsense. Gimme my ng back!

Yes Karl / guys,

Trouble and mess seen here in Newport over the last few days.

Can we just go back to how things were just after the New Year ?

Fingers crossed,
Phil.

Karl,
I am sorry to hear that you are frustrated with the Web UI.
I can assure you that nothing has changed on our side.
You will understand that with my absence we have tried to keep things as stable as possible.
And on my PC I still see borders.
See screenshot:



If you see something else then it must be a change caused by a change in the browser.

And Phil, I can also still add attachments as you can see.

Robert,
good to see you back, without frost-bites ;)

Tried to answer using the new "Enter your answer here" box, but there's no means to add an attachment, so hit "Go to editor..." - my entries were gone, but here i can attach the view at my site.
Interestingly now i can hit Preview and see a reaction...
FTR, i start at home page, and use the links at the right hand side to reach the forum area.

Addendum: just had a go with Vivaldi-browser, here the borders are back. Switched to IE11 and also there no problem.
All in all, FF's "quantum leap" seems to be a bit jolty...

Hi Robert,

welcome back!

but there seems to be a change in the forum software: on my mobie phone the forums block is shown at the bottom of the page, not more at the side where it is located on the desktop.
And in the threads itself after each message there are the complete reply input fields, not only the "Action" button as before. This makes the page very long and hard to read.

Ah, so I was probably right in waiting till others find nuances like that, before I update my firefox :)

Wolfgang & Phil, since Robert said that there was no change from the website part (I was suspecting a forum software update), maybe something changed in your end instead, some kind of browser update? Or MS released yet another brilliant windows update maybe? :)

I am using Edge, I seen NO problem in my end and I am sending a lot into the forums lately <g>.



Chris


I seen nothing unusual. I am using Edge primarily. Latest and greatest Windows 10.

But yesterday, I cannot post attachment but I consider it traffic in my end. Attachment button is working now.

It is easier to communicate with screen shots but I could not do it yesterday.... so....

Regards,

Rene

There has been NO change to the forum software. However there was an update to another component (community builder, a component that we use to manage user profiles). This component is included in every page, it shows the logon and logout button on the top.
Maybe a change in a css or js file from this component causes problems with the forum software?

Which browser are you using on which phone ?

Robert,
as of now, formatting is back to usual on FF (no update in the meantime) - whatever had happened, it seems cleared.

Hi Robert,

strange - now it is back as usual.

My phone is a Nexus 5X with Android 8.1 and I'm using Mozilla Firefox.

The forums look is now as it was 3 days ago, both on the phone and on my PC.
This can be a CSS issue, I think.

Thank you for you continued work!

Hello Karl,

Remarkable, because I also use Firefox Quantum (57.0.4) and this forum has not changed. It looks the same now in FF and also in Vivaldi. Did not notice changes yesterday either. And FF seems noticeable faster.

I share your feelings about the NG. Yesterday the X# NG did not work; today it did but with only 2 messages in 8 weeks we must accept that a technology which is far more user friendly and faster to use and can be stored and seen off line is slowly getting outdated although the 'comp.lang group is still used often. Having traveled for over 6 weeks in New Zealand I was reminded often how valuable it is to have your data off line. Most of the South Island's west coast is mainly without mobile reception - which I used for a wifi hotspot to my laptop. And most of the times, data traffic was slow (3G on its best).

Back home, on line data works fine of course and against the remaining drawbacks of having to log in and a less comfortable way of seeing what's new than in a NG we have a better option to include pictures and formatting.
