I'm getting some strange behaviour from Sisyphus..

Sisyphus 1.2. SMF 2.0.11. Firefox 41.0.2.

Whenever I try to edit a post, mine or somebody else's, Sisyphus causes the text from the last post I made to be re-loaded into the editor, instead of the text I'm trying to edit. Are there any configuration settings I've missed seeing, or is something borked?

Same issue.

Did you try the version from github?
Please do not PM me for support.

profzelonka

Yes, that's 1.3.

1. Write post
2. Crash browser
3. Reopen page and post the "saved" post.
4. Make new post

Bug: Previously posted text is in post box again.

I looked into this mod some time ago, and wanted to install it.  But I heard somewhere that it doesn't work with one of the 3 most-used browsers (I don't even remember which one now).

But now, looking at it again, I don't see any comments to that effect.  Does it work with all browsers?

Thanks :)

I think modern browsers already have this feature.

It doesn't work for me with Firefox.  And a member reported the other day that they lost their message, after browsing away and back.

Would this mod sort of take up the slack for browsers where it doesn't work?

Just install this mod and try.

Just some feedback.

Now that I think about it, you must mean that the browser saves the message in the browser, if you have it set to save the form history.  But I don't use that option.  Otherwise, I've never heard of browsers saving forum messages.

Sisyphus does save the message.  It saves it in both Quick Reply and the full editor!  But it saves it so well that it's still there after the message is posted.  In fact, it's still there even after I browse to another topic!  And another.  And another, and another, and, well I didn't try restarting the browser.  But I don't see any reason for the message to persist after it's posted.

So I don't think I'll be able to use this.  After I go to a new topic, I need the text box to be empty.  Actually, I think posting the message should clear out both quick and full reply fields, because no one needs the message after they've already posted it.  If they do, it's easy enough to click Modify, to copy it.  But definitely both text fields should be empty when a new topic is opened.

If there's any chance of this mod being updated to avoid this problem, I'll be glad to help with testing  :-)  (I'm no good with codes.)

Thank you very much!

Edit
And there's another problem.  Because the message is never removed from the editor (I'm guessing that's the reason) whenever I go to a new topic, it shows the warning that a new message has been posted while I was typing.  No matter which topic I'm looking at, and even if I refresh the page and immediately click Reply, it tells me a new message was posted already.

I don't use this mod myself. And I have no spare time to rewrite it now.

I suppose SMF's development goals do not necessarily include competing with phpBB (or other forum sw), but phpBB does a beautiful job of this (from the user point of view - I wouldn't know beautiful code if I looked at it.)

Maybe someone else will pick it up and either fix, or re-write?  Keeping my fingers crossed!  And as I said before, I'll be ready to help with testing, if I'm aware (via subscribing to this topic) that it's happening.

Sounds good. Do I need to remove the existing version before installing this one?
