Messaging Bug



  • Is anyone else having problems with using the forum messaging system? I can't seem to get the 'Send' button to work.

    Yep.
    Seems broken.
    I blame @Arkandel



  • @auspice I always blame @Arkandel. Unless @Thenomain is available, then I blame @Thenomain .

    I had to put the message into full screen mode to get it to send.

    Yep, works that way (even if you have to scroll down on the page for it to display).

    @Arkandel just updated nodebb yesterday to the latest version and I noticed visual changes to the messenger. I'm guessing it has ISHOOS.


  • Pitcrew

    OH that's what's wrong. I just thought people had me blocked.



  • @mr-johnson Well, that too.


  • Coder

    Yeah I had the same problem on both Chrome and mobile Chrome. Had to open up the "See all chats" in full screen to get it to work.

    Possibly related - I've also had a problem where regular threads don't refresh after I post a reply, so it looks like the reply isn't working.


  • Pitcrew

    @faraday Same here man, none of my replies show until I refresh the page.



  • @mr-johnson Maybe you blocked yourself.


  • Pitcrew

    @tinuviel I blocked myself? IT MUST BE TRUE. MY ENTIRE WORLD IS AN EMPIRE OF LIES EVERYTHING EVERYONE SAYS ABOUT ME IS TRUE! I am a monster that must be stopped!

    Sorry guys. As @Auspice noted we updated to the latest version of nodebb on Saturday - and it's as great as advertised.

    For those affected, please make sure to try a different theme as well and see if that fixes the issue (then report here so others can benefit from it). I'm not sure what I can do about it until I get home at least, since this is the latest and greatest.


  • Coder

    @Arkandel They're Javascript errors. Changing themes didn't help (which isn't surprising). Looks like bugs in the latest version of nodebb.

    • In the chat window as you type it continues to say 0/1000 chars and gives: Uncaught TypeError: o.updateRemainingLength is not a function (And it gives that error when you click send too).

    • When loading a thread and it tries to go to your last read position: Uncaught TypeError: i.init is not a function

    Technically there are no errors when you reply, but I'm guessing the fact that it doesn't refresh is related to the init failure when the thread was first loaded.

    Story of @Arkandel's life.


  • Admin

    @faraday Yeah, when I saw this thread today I went and git fetch'ed to make sure there are no mismatching files in branch v1.8.x... there aren't.

    I'll look when I have time to see if, on nodebb's own server, there aren't reports of this since there are bound to be.


  • Pitcrew

    I'm not able to generate message boxes at all, which I'm guessing is part of the bug. (As in, I have my notification that I have a message, but when I click on it, nothing actually happens, no message box opens up.)


  • Admin

    @cupcake That's weird. It seems to be working for me on Chrome v 65.0.3325.181 on Windows.

    I'm sorry guys, all I can do is offer client-side suggestions here. If the server branch is current I'm not sure how else I can help until a new version comes out.

    I just took out some custom JS we have inherited from before I took over, but otherwise I don't want to debug these templates manually since then I'd need to make sure they work in every subsequent upgrade as well.

    Sometimes it never opens for me, sometimes it does. Sometimes I have to go to notifications and click on it from there, sometimes I just have to go to 'See all chats' to get it working.

    (the only way I can send messages is to go to 'See all chats,' pick a name, and scroll down the page. I've yet to get anything else working. I've been fiddling with a number of things. This does seem wholly to do with the update to nodebb)

    Are we unable to roll back, Ark? That seems a failing of the system. :|

    @Arkandel -- I was able to get my browser working again just by clearing old browsing data. Might have been some bad cached javascript somewhere.

    In Chrome for Mac, it was Chrome -> Clear Browsing Data -> Cached Images and Files.



  • Slate skin: When sending a DM to a person where the message box on the forums is white, the box on the slate skin is slate, the text is also slate, so no real way to preview what you have typed unless you make a mistake, then there is a weird red squiggle you can click if you have spellcheck as an option.
