Feedback Bug

Well since PlusNet's QA team took some very long lunches, and feel asleep while doing QA testing on Lithium - I have noticed that.

The Feedback tab is very annoying and it doesn't go away, even after I have left feedback saying 'Please remove the feedback tab'.

I notice Argos's website must have use the same software, as the bug is there too.

Come back PHPBB3, all is forgiven. At least it worked.

Where did the spell checker disappear to as well? What an improvment to the forums that wasn't. We'll remove the spell checker, but here is a good idea - have a 'Feedback' tab that never disappears even after you've used it.

Re: Feedback Bug

Can't comment on the tab - only seem to see it on the iPad,because I haven't got round to installing uBlock, but as I rarely use that for forums, I'm not stressing about it.

Most browsers have a spell-checker installed or available - ever thought of checking yours, @Alex ?

Re: Feedback Bug

Yes of course I have one, just the built in one was useful - while it lasted.

So that was removed, and now we have the fun and games of a Feedback tab which won't go away.

I went onto another main site, same bug. (Better not say who or the PC Brigade will tell me off for advertising).

Re: Feedback Bug

Well the bug has still not been fixed, maybe it will be within my life expetency?

So I want the Feedback tab removed .. if Lithium worked correctly it would recognise I have left feedback and leave me alone.

Re: Feedback Bug

Anyone else noticed this? The tab does not go away, even when I ask for the tab to go away.

Lithium must be the forum software for who do QA testing, and users who read The Sun.

Getting right on my nerves now, and I suspect it won't be fixed within my life expectancy.

It would be useful if that could be removed from my account, and the spell checker reinstated.

Re: Feedback Bug

Just get an effective adblocker - I never see it on my laptops.

Re: Feedback Bug

Fair enough @jab1 

I just don't see why I should have to install additional software to circumvent a very annoying bug on the PlusNet site. It should be fixed their side, on their server. Me having to install and maintain addional software my side for something their developers could fix is a hack IMHO.

It will of course affect other sites should I put Ad blockers on. I think I can remember the other site now which had the same bug.

Besides, putting an Adblocker on won't reinstate the spell checker will it? I can only assume that was to do with £'s in that some form of a subscription payment for a dictionary maintainence upkeep.

I know being a developer myself, it is not exactly rocket science to put something like a 'DisableFeedback' flag in the database, put it in the user settings UI so the user can set it. I would tick that box in about a yoctosecond. I reckon it would take a day to do, if that long?
