I just tried really hard to break things by uploading 24 images at once and then deleting then uploading etc... I never got an error.  I did,  however,  manage to get 5 images to show up on one post even though the maximum number of images is set for 4.  Is this is the same 'issue' Antechinus came across?

Arantor

It's a variant of the one I posted where here for example it says you have 36 but attaching one means you have 19 left.

Basically the whole thing is busted and the *team* should be fixing it. Or at least acknowledging it so any work gets integrated.

Not holding my breath. :P  The insert preview bug on this site that was reported a week ago has still not been fixed.  Is anyone paying attention?

Some of us have other things to do in life from time to time. We are aware of the situation, and we'll interact when we have had time to assess it and deal with it. If that timeframe doesn't fit within the constraints of certain individuals' degree of patience, those individuals are cordially invited to take a long walk off a short dock.

Thank you for acknowledging that there is a fairly substantial problem here, with a core feature.

I tested with my sons ipad.  I really don't know how to to manipulate this device very well (I really don't do ios or android) but...

The good news is that the uploads auto-upload in both Chrome and Safari on his ipad (both single and multiple files).

I do not know if there are errors in the console as I have no idea how to access the console.

But they do work!

:D


FrizzleFried

Having been doing some pretty decent amount of testing on this auto-attachment upload...

I've determined that pressing INSERT on each is a slight annoyance as each time you click insert the browser pops up to the editor field (as is necessary to show placement, etc)...

Would it make sense to add an "INSERT ALL" option now somewhere that would do just that... insert all attachments one after another with perhaps a space between (or carriage return?)?


Steve

Carriage return? You're showing our age my friend.  :P
Please do not PM me for support.

but then why do I know exactly what that is? (hello typewriter)

FrizzleFried

In my defense... carriage return was used in ASCII code,  DOS ...IIRC, and a few other places for the computer as well.  :)

I am old... but not THAT old...

;)

Arantor

I'm old enough to remember dealing with carriage returns and newlines when programming stuff to be printed out to a physical printer.

I also know that Windows still mostly treats a 'line break' as being made up of 'a carriage return marker' (ASCII 13) followed by a 'new line marker' (ASCII 10).

But I'm kinda old.

Remember these?

Standard mobile browsers generally don't have development tools (which is a nuisance).

No offense, Sesq, but if 2.1 had been managed properly over 10 years of development, we wouldn't be having this discussion.  As you have seen, other folks have stepped up since official release and offered several very good fixes for the more obvious hairballs.  That could have been done years ago, but it wasn't.  Whose fault is that?

There's no point escalating the ******ing at this stage. It won't help matters. He has said they will look at it as soon as they can.

Kindred

Nope..  at this point it's whining.

I got told off by my wife the other day for the same thing.  If you keep harping on it, despite it being past, done and unalterable  -- then it's 100% whining.
Get over it. Move on.
