Bug Fixes Incoming - 13 May 16

 

Afternoon All

Tomorrow morning 13 May 16, @jaread83 will be pushing the below bug fixes live. They should be completed for 10am however, if there are any delays with this, I'll post an update.

  • Update year in footer to 2016
  • Hiding defunct 'default emoticon' option from user settings
  • Fix search suggestions to hide the attachments icon
  • Remove searchbar from plusnet header 
  • Remove the hidden CSS for uploading images through the media manager page
  • Update solution email wording 
  • Spam quarantine CSS updates (mod and admins only) 
  • UI update of image upload in RT editor for mobile devices 
  • Plusnet menu is now clickable on mobile
  • Thanks button - removed border from thanks that appears after clicking to give thanks
  • Mobile menu bug fixes for Android browser
  • Bug fixed where user would leave malformed HTML after mentioning a user then deleting the text which would leave residual HTML that breaks out of the reply area
  • Visited pseudo selector updated on notifications feed to include all links due to update of notification items

Please let myself and @jaread83 know if you have any questions.

Cheers

Louisa

Re: Bug Fixes Incoming - 13 May 16

Thank you @LouisaMartin.

For those reading this you may notice that these updates are all visual changes to the frontend.

Changes to the system are done by Lithium as I don't have access to the source code and any issues with the platform have been raised with Lithium support for fixes.

Re: Bug Fixes Incoming - 13 May 16

Can you try releasing a similar number of fixes every Friday ?

 

I'm sure those fixes are useful some someone, but don't fix anything I've reported, but I understand it is early days, and it looks like a good start on making at least some visible progress.

Re: Bug Fixes Incoming - 13 May 16

As we don't have full time Web Dev resource on Community, we'll be doing our releases fortnightly @Nibiru on the opposite fortnight to the main website releases. 

This allows the web dev team (i.e. @jaread83@mtrinder and others) to share their time across a number of other Digital areas and by doing our releases fortnightly, they can allocate their time and resource better.

Cheers

Re: Bug Fixes Incoming - 13 May 16

Do you have any commitment from Lithium as to when they are going to release both bug fixes and performance enhancements ?.

 

The problem that REALLY causes me issues is the frequent horrendous file 'GET' times !

It would also help me A LOT is if the browser CPU usage could be reduced to say a FIFTH of what it is now.

Re: Bug Fixes Incoming - 13 May 16

Thanks @LouisaMartin @jaread83 at least it's a start.  A pity that none of the more annoying bugs are in the list thoughLips are sealed.

Are there any indications yet from lithium as to which 'bugs' they propose to fix next week (?).

Not sure where that's been said? Lithium will have their own timelines, change process and rollout process for fixes.

Re: Bug Fixes Incoming - 13 May 16

We have some bugs currently sat with Lithium being investigated @MauriceC. Which bugs in particular are you referring to?

Re: Bug Fixes Incoming - 13 May 16

HI @rongtw I believe I've already posted about the FF46 issue and the fact this sits with Mozilla and isn't a Lithium bug. I am aware some software developers have developed workarounds for this however, at this moment in time, Lithium aren't looking to do this. Sorry.

The problem from this side of the fence @LouisaMartin is that there is no way of knowing which of the many bugs that have been reported by the Community have actually been accepted and are being actively pursued either by lithium or by Plusnet. 

So my rather simplistic answer must be 'all of those which have currently been reported'.

Strongly implied in Louisa's post #4 in this thread?
