Whenever I close the quick reply window, the thread scrolls all the way back to the top. Using Firefox. Not sure if new or just noticed.
I will look into it and try to find a fix.
Added a fix for Firefox that hopefully will work. Let me know if it needs to be tweaked. For some reason Firefox didn't play too well with the ScrollTop function and how it is used. So I had to add an extra timeout function that fired the scroll a few milliseconds after the quick reply box was closed on Firefox (hopefully I sat the wait time long enough to not be too late, but short enough to not be too noticeable).
Hello, I'm having some trouble with deleting and editing posts. Whenever I stay on the page I just posted in and delete, it goes through. Whenever I close my browser and come back my password gets rejected in case of deleting or looped back to the prompt in case of editing. Also using Firefox, and have set the browser to delete cookies after closing it, if that helps any.
You should be able to delete posts using the password you posted with (did quick test). Have you setup Firefox to delete cookies upon closing browser resulting in password being reset when you restart browser and load the page again?
That's what it's looking like. Just tried to delete >>5362 and something new comes in the password field when opening the prompt. However neither that nor password I've posted with seems to be working... is this just user error?
Attempting deletion after password reset now.
I will do some testing on my end, I can't rule out I fucked up somewhere. Is this only happening when using Firefox, and only if you close browser and restart it? In other words if you don't close Firefox you can delete, but the moment you restart the browser you can't?
It worked when I reset my password with this post >>5366
. I can try on a different browser if need be. Is the site set up that way on purpose or is this a bug?
And yes, that seems to be the case. When I close firefox I can't delete, but if I post and don't close the browser, to my knowledge, I can delete. Sorry for the spam.
Looks like I found the little bug that caused it. It was sadly not as simple as uploading an updated JS code (as bug is in the template for the delete post form). I will update code tomorrow with fix.
A temporary workaround for now is to make a post with the correct password, and then delete the post. The bug is that on initial load of the form the password is set from the settings. But I did a little fuckup where I didn't check if that field was already set, so on confirm load the password field was overwritten with the one in settings that browser sat it to on load. My Bad.
Np, thanks for looking into it. I was able to delete the post that I wanted to for tonight with the workaround.
You make it sound like coding isn't so bad. I've had a duplicate line take me five hours to find before.
Finding that one that line (or comma) that fucks you up, but looks normal, can often be the hardest thing to do. A good IDE and Debugger so you can add breakpoints and traverse the code step by step is an invaluable tool to have. Some languages can be really hard to debug unless you add an output for each step hoping it gives you useful feedback.
Agreed, finally realizing that gdb wasn't a hurdle was a godsend. Anyway, thanks again, and happy new year.
