No. 230

In the interest of keeping things neat and tidy I thought it would be a good idea to have a thread for bug reports.

When reporting a bug, make sure to include enough information to reproduce the bug. This usually includes:

What did you try to do?
What did you expect to happen?
What happened instead?


>What did you try to do?
I clicked on the "No." or the post number of a reply to a thread on the overboard.
>What did you expect to happen?
I expected it to load the thread the reply is in, scroll down to and highlight that post
>What happened instead?
404 Error

>What did you try to do?

I Clicked on an image in a thread from the overboard
>What did you expect to happen?
I expected it to expand the image in the page like it does if you click on the image while you're in the thread.
>What happened instead?
My browser is sent to a page containing only the thumbnail for that image

>What did you try to do?

I Clicked on a webm in a thread from the overboard
>What did you expect to happen?
I expected to webm to play and allow me to pause/play/change the volume/etc via the buttons on the webm player
>What happened instead?
The webm plays, but seems like the buttons for pause/play/change the volume/etc don't work.

(I understand there were already threads for bug reports for webms and the overboard but I think it might be better to have a centralized one rather than having to go to each different thread to make the reports)


>What did you try to do?
Clicked directly on a thumbnail (next to a post) while on /overboard/.

>What did you expect to happen?

I expected the full size picture to open in a new tab, like on the boards themselves.

>What happened instead?

A 404 error in a new tab.


Hi this one should be fixed, thanks for reporting!


It's working just fine now. Thank you!


>What did you try to do?
I tried to delete this post: https://dreamch.net/dr/res/87.html#q746
>What did you expect to happen?
I expected the post to disappear if I checked the box? It didn't show other options.
>What happened instead?
It disappeared from the page, and after I refreshed the site, but after I refreshed for a second time it reappeared.
Now I have the duplicate of my post, and I wonder if it could be deleted? The first post had grammar mistakes so that's why I tried to delete and repost. Sorry for the inconvenience.


Hmm, strange this happened. I have deleted the post, thanks :)


>What did you try to do?
I clicked the "[Home]" button whole on the rules page
>What did you expect to happen?
I expected to be taken to the homepage
>What happened instead?
I was taken to "dreamchan.net" instead of "dreamch.net"


Hey thanks for the report, I've fixed the link and it should direct correctly now. Also you've reminded me to check on dreamchan.net's availability, I went ahead and picked it back up. I'll redirect it to dreamch.net once it propagates. This was the original domain for the site but I had ended up abandoning over a dispute with the initial registrar.

>What did you try to do?
I recently made post >>815 in a thread on /dr/ and tried to scroll to it again.

>What did you expect to happen?

I thought I would see my post.

>What happened instead?

For some reason it's not there when I'm in the thread, but it's visible from the board index itself.

This is from within the thread.

That’s weird, I do see it in the thread though, maybe try hard refreshing?


I noticed that too previously. They usually show up a few minutes later.


It should be pretty instantaneous, I'll look to see if anything funny is going on. Thanks for the reports!


File: 1580213416191.jpg (178.1 KB, 767x960, 0cfAbgLmtew.jpg)

It's showing up for me now, but I experience the same problem now with someone else's post, post >>945 in /nos/


File: 1582705938075.png (6.88 KB, 452x214, Screenshot_2020-02-26 Deed….png)

Someone please fix this bug.


It’s not a bug, I don’t think deeds should be that long


same, i think it borked again


File: 1591565758112.png (50.26 KB, 382x293, bug.png)

I think I've found a bug


Also, it would be cool if you had fixed caching policy


Thanks for reporting, I can fix.
Can you be a little more specific? "Fixed caching policy" can be a bit vague and taken at face value (for certain POST requests) may not always be the best. Maybe you can describe the desired behavior you'd like to see?


>Can you be a little more specific? "Fixed caching policy" can be a bit vague and taken at face value (for certain POST requests) may not always be the best. Maybe you can describe the desired behavior you'd like to see?
I don't know how to explain this.
Sometimes HTML page isn't updated (unless you press Ctrl+F5), and you don't see recently posted posts. But now I think about it, I could have just opened an old tab without realizing it. So, don't do anything :D

If I will encounter this behavior once again, I will let you know.


Ah I see what you mean. After some time, thread views on the boards will update via AJAX, and show new posts, no reload needed. That functionality seems to be in place, as it works for me, but I can see if something is the matter there.
As for Deeds, there is no auto-update functionality, but I can definitely add that.

I have caught caching issue again.

Did Duck forgot to renew the certificate again?


Cron job fucked up (aka duck made a bug) and made caused a 2 hour invalid cert gap, all good now :)


Do you allow torposting?


Oh man…


How do I report spam again?


File: 1604711724324.png (13.69 KB, 482x167, Screenshot_20201106_220845.png)


tor test again


Huh, looks like apostrophes/single right quotation ( ’ ) are being decoded in the wrong format for the Deeds-board preview on the home page. Actual Deeds board displays them properly, but front page shows them as (â€) which I think is the equivalent value in CP-1252 encoding


d'oh! thanks for catching this, i'll aim to make a fix this week.

should be fixed now, thanks again for the report!


File: 1619409972114.png (1.03 MB, 2200x1628, mobile-menu.png)

i wanted to use this thread to bump an enhancement i rolled out today. there has been some strife about the navigation menu usability on mobile (especially if you have large thumbs.) now, when at <530px width, the nav menu will turn in to a dropdown. the appearance of the selector will depend on what platform you are on, and selecting the menu item will navigate you as expected. please let me know if you find any issues or bugs, large viewports remain unchanged. thanks!


follow up: server side cache has been cleared for indexed pages/js, so if you see something funky, a hard refresh should do the trick.


File: 1619414051138.png (92.65 KB, 826x1016, Screen Shot 2021-04-25 at ….png)

thinking about it more, i don't want to lose the quick accessibility of heading back to the home page. this is rough and just me playing around in the console, but i think maybe extracting "home" from the dropdown to its own right-hand link may be the right move. open to thoughts!


File: 1619464775382.png (11.82 KB, 1503x82, test.png)

it looks weird on desktop, can you center it o put it here?


oh dear! that's not right at all! can you confirm that the mobile dropdown does not exist on desktop in a private window and after you hard refreshed in the current one?

How it looks on mobile


File: 1619476360094.png (903.4 KB, 2880x1236, Screen Shot 2021-04-26 at ….png)

how it looks on desktop. both editions are safari


the dropdown menu on desktop is dysfunctional. clicking on a board from the menu doesn't do anything, nor does it do anything when I refresh the page with it selected


File: 1619484056736.png (174.15 KB, 2432x1282, Screen Shot 2021-04-26 at ….png)

hmm, looks fine for me on safari anon


oh well it disappeared


great, likely just a caching issue then :)


is duck dead?
