Title: Bug reports
Post by: AGA on 25 Jan 2013, 12:50
Hello!

We seem to have found and fixed most of the little bugs that still existed after the recent site changes, but please post here and let me know if you find any problems.  I am aware the games page search is a bit wonky atm, and will fix that soon.

At the bottom of a person's profile page I see
"Database Error"
"Please try again. If you come back to this error screen, report the error to an administrator."

Is it possible to fix the old links to AGS games? There are quite many of them all over the internet.

The 'REPLY' button at top of screen, is just a navy blue rectangle.  You can't read it, unless you hover your mouse over it.

Which user?  I've taken a look at various people's profiles, and it doesn't happen to me!

It works fine for me, in Internet Explorer and Firefox, using both the AGS and AGS Compact themes...  Try pressing CTRL+SHIFT+R to force a full refresh.

It's been like that for a few weeks now, not just today.  Doesn't seem to matter how many times I refresh.

For me it looks like Frodo described it. (nod)

Also I still have the lines not sorted in the profiles (about what the member did for the named game). The jobs start at the first line and are not „connected“ to the game.
So if you make the browser smaller to get two lines for one (name of a) game, it doesn't effect the lines of the listed jobs. They stay in place from the top, no matter which game is listed on the left side at this line – so you can't see, what the one did for the game.

Does this only happen on certain members' profiles?  If so, can you give me an example?

What browser(s) and platform(s) are you both using?  It shouldn't make a difference, but just so I can check to see if that's having an effect.

I think the most likely problem is the resolution you're viewing the profiles at though.  I use 1920x1200, and Calin (whose profile I think you screenshotted?)'s profile shows fine.  If you use a lower resolution, the stupidly long name of IWWHIIWWHITOMIROTPG: The Game! is going to cause the two lines to become out of sync where it wrap around.
Title: Re: Bug reports
Post by: Tabata on 26 Jan 2013, 11:25
It's the same on all the profiles (that I tried so far)
I am using IE and W7,64

I made some shots of a profile and the changings of the look in the different layouts/themes to make it easier to see the differences and the things I talked about earlier:
(http://img690.imageshack.us/img690/2654/forumbugs.png)

Hope it helps.

Edit
… and this is how the darkened first button (the reply-button in threads and the first one in boards) are looking and reacting when hoovering with the cursor over it (since several weeks, like Frodo said)

I can't really really that image, since it's so tiny!  What resolution are you using on your machine?

I use 1366 x 768 on my laptop

That has an effect, too (even if I think it shouldn't screw it up). I am often zooming for easier reading ;)
But if you just look at the first line every new section (especially the games and the offered jobs) it has always a wrong start in the second column - the first job should come up on the first game, not behind the "headline")

Edit:
here's the bigger version of the shots

Found an issue with characters that the forum has trouble with making the post not show up in the forums (although if you click "Modify" the post is still there). http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/forums/index.php?topic=44664.msg619650#msg619650 has more details (and take a look at WHAM's response directly underneath, and try quoting it).

Tried under Firefox 18.0.1, Windows XP, UK settings. This affects all browsers, though.

I'm also getting the thing Tabata described, with the 'Games That I've Wokred On' section not lining up as it should.   :undecided:

And the image she posted, with the darkened 'Reply' button, is just how I see it. 


I use IE9, and Windows 7.  It all worked fine here a few weeks ago, then that dargened button just started appearing, even though I haven't changed any of my settings.   :tongue:

Turns out the Google Maps mod developer thought of this: all I had to do was uncomment one line of code and it was done!  Nice not to have to go around wildly hacking for a change.

Makes sense!  Are you using a different OS, browser (version), etc?  No logical reason why that would cause a database error of course...

I'll add my home setup as soon as I'm back at home.

That's exactly the setup I use at work.  Not that that means a huge amount with Firefox of course, since there are addons and extensions that could cause problems.  Nothing client side should be able to cause a database error regardless though, so it's quite weird!

I apparently have the same database error while viewing profiles. Perhaps it has something to do with the Ratings Panel - since it's what we both have in common.

Just in case (it seems to be a forum issue and nothing browser related.. but), I'm using Chrome 24.0.1312.57 m. The only extension running is Chrome to Phone.

when searching games the games entries shortly display in full and then collapse. This looks strange and a bit confusing.
Maybe adding a explanation to click the game name to expand again would help. But over all I think the collapsing is useless and the longer entries including screenshots is what I was looking for anyways ;)

Answer: MANY!!!!!!!

Okay, sorry, it is not really a bug report, but I was so used to click on leftmost "Adventure Game Studio Forums" tag to return to main forum page, and now I have to watch myself and click exactly on "Forums".
Bah, just somewhat annoyed, nevermind. :)

Title: Re: Bug reports
Post by: AGA on 06 Mar 2013, 14:36
For the time being at least, I've made the mention of the full site plaintext rather than a link.

Maybe put "homepage" icon/graphic with a link on top of the forum board?

This actually is in the site code, it's just never worked for some reason.  I'll keep fiddling, try to get it working.

Or "Site" or "Main Site", even. No need to AGS-tag every AGS-thing with AGS on the AGS-site and AGS-forum.

I was going for a uniformity of design and titling.  The word AGS (or "Adventure Game Studio") appears no more now than it did before, it just said "AGS Forums" before rather than the full name.

Plus, branding is good!  SEO is important!

On pretty much every blue bar, like the headers for each sub-forum, on the Quick Reply right above the text window where I'm writing this, and for the "Attachments and other options" on the full message editor. Among others. And it's the wrong way around on every.single.one of them. (Darth will dispute this.)

Who mentioned CSS? SMF uses different chunks of HTML and PHP depending on which theme you're using.  For every tiny tweak I make to the forums, I have to make the same change to the AGS and AGSCompact themes' files (PHP, CSS, JS, whatever).  It's quite easy to forget to update the AGS theme, since I use the AGSCompact one myself (and vice versa sometimes!).

Can we change the URL to be linked to the image only instead of the whole div? Especially when you want to click the expand/shrink arrow and miss it slightly, or when I just missed the Home button now and it took me to the main page.

Also in Chrome with the compact layout, the bottom pixel of the image covers the blue line above the navigation bar.

Title: Re: Bug reports
Post by: Peder 🚀 on 23 Mar 2013, 14:19
That's because it IS literally a moving thread:

But, to add to the confusion (and this is the best part, but probably the part that will create chaos) is that the thread moves forums. It could be in hints and tips. It could be in Beginners tech.
Title: Re: Bug reports

Title: Re: Bug reports

Title: Re: Bug reports
Post by: selmiak on 30 Mar 2013, 12:28
and while I'm on it...

the awards page is a cool thing but the link named
Full games page entry
on commercial games without further notice of the game beeing commercial on the awards page will probably evoke feelings of 'I'm so gonna download this now' and then the disappointment of seeing only a demo available for free. So what I'm trying to say here is, that commercial games that only have a demo available in the database should be noted as that on the awards page to avoid frustrated visitors.

And naturally I'm interested in what awards the game has won right on the awards page. Also nominations of course. When displaying the cup rating and the description from the database, displaying the award won and nominated for should be easy to do on the awards page. Right in between the desription and the cupratings seems like a nice place for this.


and actually using *ZOMG* a table for the Award Nominees underneath the winners on the page wouldn't be so bad, as it is tabular data indeed and so the linebreaks would be indented. The current linebreaks look strange. A smaller font could also work as a temporarily fix until longer gametitles come along.
Title: Re: Bug reports
Post by: Crimson Wizard on 30 Mar 2013, 19:03
Game search has some bugs. Not sure, but might be related to certain characters in game's name, such as whitespace or non-letters.
In particular, I was unable to find "Trilby's Notes" by typing in full game's name, but it worked when I typed in "Notes".
Title: Re: Bug reports
Post by: AGA on 31 Mar 2013, 00:10
It's probably because characters are escaped in the database, but the search strings aren't.  I'll fix it... eventually!
Title: Re: Bug reports
Post by: Peder 🚀 on 01 Apr 2013, 07:07
the dropdown menu next to the quicksearch on every page has no effect. It always searches the entire forum and not for example the board you are in atm.

This is not correct, all but the "this board" works, and reason that one doesn't work is a fault in the code:
Code: Adventure Game Studio
  1. <select name="search_selection">
  2.     <option value="entireforum" selected="selected">Entire Forum </option>
  3.     <option value="thisbrd">This board </option> <== value should be "thisboard" not "thisbrd"
  4.     <option value="thistopic">This topic </option>
  5.     <option value="members">Members </option>
  6.     <option value="entiresite">Entire Site </option>
  7. </select>

and a minor bug, but probably easier to fix: The from the forums box on the AGS startpage shows the name of the poster as the signup name, not the display name.
This is because it collects the name of the poster from the post part of the db and not from the user part.
It would be easy to change though.

Fixed?  Gimme some info, man!  Search terms at least.  The line number will probably have changed, since I added a load of completely unrelated code earlier.

I'll fix the search terms thing you mentioned before when I get the chance, but I need to make the data uniform, which is more of a job than you might think.

Cool, thanks for adding all this in, another suggestion for the expandable table when clicking on the Award Nominees' more info link:


Code: Adventure Game Studio
  1. <tr>
  2.   <td id="nominationsList####" class="awardNominee" style="display block">
  3.     nominations list
  4.   </td>
  5. </tr>
get rid of the style="display block" and replace it with colspan="3". Looks better!



and something minor again:
when clicking on

Award Wins >>
or
Award Nominations >>

and thus expanding the additional info the >> should logically become a
Award Wins <<
Award Nominations <<

then. To indicate that you collapse it by clicking again ;)

The display:none is required for the hiding and showing of the nominees div.  Regardless, I had to rejig the way it's laid out, for reasons too boring to go into.  I also made the arrows swap directions.  It all looks pretty smart now, thanks for the suggestions!

This was caused by an unforeseen consequence of selmiak's suggestions.  Should be fixed now though.

on the mainpage the link to the News Archive >> doesn't have the >> included in the link while everything else has it in. Damn you OCD!!! :D

also there seems to be a 1 or 2 pixel high line on the very top of the mainpage that makes the scrollbar appear even though it is not needed. Then again this keeps the main page aligned and indented like on all the other pages. Still strange though.

Fixed.  Although CJ seems to use >> to mean random things.  Some random links have it, when it generally means 'expand in page'.  I'll go through at some point and make it uniform.

also there seems to be a 1 or 2 pixel high line on the very top of the mainpage that makes the scrollbar appear even though it is not needed. Then again this keeps the main page aligned and indented like on all the other pages. Still strange though.

If you can work out where that's coming from, I'll fix it.  I had a fiddle, but I can't work it out.  The main problem with inheriting a design someone else created!

What the... firebug doesn't work on the AGS page. What kind of sorcery is this?

but the
Code: CSS
  1. .fullWidthMainWrapper {
  2.     border-top: 1px solid #90AFF4;

would be my first guess, second guess the sticky footer, third guess this all combined and some more css... but without firebug (or fiddeling around with the css of a live page) this is just a very rough guess.

Okay, so apparently the border was somehow keeping the top menu bar fixed in the same place.  When it's removed, the menu bar items float around by a few pixels depending on how wide the page is.  Which looks really silly!  Any ideas?  CSS is such a pain, with everything being positioned relative to something else.
Title: Re: Bug reports

Title: Re: Bug reports
Post by: AGA on 05 Apr 2013, 22:48
I've done it again.  Take a look at the 'ags', 'community' or 'games' pages, compared to the front page.  The top navbar entries shift around a bit, which they didn't do when the top border was there.
Title: Re: Bug reports
Post by: selmiak on 05 Apr 2013, 23:11
Looks like normal behaviour to me, but you probably mean what I meant here:

also there seems to be a 1 or 2 pixel high line on the very top of the mainpage that makes the scrollbar appear even though it is not needed. Then again this keeps the main page aligned and indented like on all the other pages. Still strange though.

which basically means when the scrollbar appears it moves everything to the left and then the content is still centered in the now smaller space. I dare to claim the 1px border was added exactly for this. To make the scrollbar appear and have all pages look the same while having a minimal amount of scrolling possible on the mainpage. I don't know which is better.
Title: Re: Bug reports
Post by: Peder 🚀 on 06 Apr 2013, 14:05
The better solution would be to just display the scrollbar at all times (If that is what causes the problem):

Code: Adventure Game Studio
  1. html {
  2. overflow-y: scroll; }
Title: Re: Bug reports
Post by: AGA on 06 Apr 2013, 20:36
Well selmiak's only complaint specifically about the scrollbar being visible, so that won't make much difference.  What we really want is to remove the top 1px border, but still have the top navbar items fixed in the same position on every page...
Title: Re: Bug reports
Post by: selmiak on 06 Apr 2013, 20:47
THEN a div floating on the right with the width of the scrollbar and 100% height could help. could...
It would have to be empty and only entered into the html on the mainpage. But then the width of the scrollbar has to be the same in every browser on every OS... >_>
Title: Re: Bug reports
Post by: Peder 🚀 on 06 Apr 2013, 21:36
The issue is not that the scrollbar is there but rather the fact it's there and scrollable by 1 pixel.
If it's just activated it will simply just show but not be scrollable (if that 1px is also removed). (Example here: http://new.agsarchives.com/about.html)

Trust me, remove the 1 pixel and add the code I gave you, I'm sure selmiak will agree it's a good solution when he sees the result!

I don't know whether it's just me, but it seems that in individual forum member's summary page, sometimes the Date Registered, Local Time and Last Active information are displayed, sometimes not.

For example, they're displayed in this account (http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/forums/index.php?action=profile;u=8083) (clicked this just because it's the first entry in the member list), but they're not displayed in mine (http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/forums/index.php?action=profile;u=8).

Tested with Opera and Chrome.

It seems that if a member has set his/her location on the map the formatting is messed up. Instead of displaying these info below the member's basic profile data they're stuffed to the right of them. Like in the following screen capture, there are some "black dots" on the right hand side, which when I managed to highlight them, copy and then paste them elsewhere I can see the intended info.
x1 x2 x3 x4

Edited: Odd. It seems that now it only affects my own account (maybe it's because a member will see more info. exposed when viewing his/her own account, such as the email), I thought I saw it affect other members' page a while back.
Title: Re: Bug reports
Post by: AGA on 23 Apr 2013, 11:18
I have a map too, and my own profile shows fine for me.  But then I'm not an ordinary user (not that you are either, but you don't see quite as much as I do).  This actually happens on both themes too.  I'll have a poke around in the code, see if I can work it out.
Title: Re: Bug reports
Post by: Peder 🚀 on 23 Apr 2013, 16:26
Seems to just be a pre-mature closure of the <dl> tag..
It seems to happen after the "Iceboty V7000a won a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2001" url..

Code: Adventure Game Studio
  1. while (($row = $smcFunc['db_fetch_row']($result)) != false) {
  2.  if ($row[2] != "") echo "<a name=\"lifetime\"><strong>" . $context['member']['name'] . " won a Lifetime Achievement Award in " . $row[2] . "</strong></a></dl>";
  3. }

Just remove the </dl> from that line AGA and it should be fine :).

Think I found a MediaWiki extension that does what you want.  Not sure if the link will point to the correct realname user page though?
Title: Re: Bug reports
Post by: selmiak on 30 Apr 2013, 11:05
hey, you're fast ;D
The userpage still has
User:Signupname
in the url but the headline on the page is the displayname. Makes sense, as you can change the display name whenever you want. Only the userID in the url would also make sense, otherwise this is the best it can get. And names are still better than numbers (from a human point of view, not seen from a server)

edit: just because I just tested it I'll add this here: it takes some time to update a displayname change on the wiki, but it does update indeed.
Title: Re: Bug reports
Post by: AGA on 30 Apr 2013, 11:44
Not sure the exact workings, since MediaWiki and SMF are both huge, evil monsters, but it's quite possible the realname only updates when your session refreshes.  You can manually change the real name field in the wiki options to force it to sync with the forums if you really want.

some more bugs:

The 'close window' link in the popup for the panel rating help is not inside the popup.

when you are credited for a game but have an empty job slot it screws up the layout. Like here (http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/site/games/game/1669/) on my credits. I have an empty slot for the indy game demo, the first in the list and the other jobs seem to move up now and the div it all is in is borked.

Code: CSS
  1.  .cupRatingPopupHelp
  2.         {
  3.         ...
  4.         line-height: 14px;
  5.         }

should do the trick.

I don't know why firefox refuses to accept this or not. The line-height attribute is only used once before throughout the css file if I'm not mistaken, for #logindisplay
So my guess would be that firefox somehow stores this or confuses it with some unclosed div or whatnot. And as the logindisplay is only one line anyways (no matter if logged in or not) this is pretty much redundant, so getting rid of the one line-height: setting in #logindisplay should fix it better than hardcoding the line height in for the popups. Maybe it breaks some layout stuff though :D doesn't do anything probably...

Title: Re: Bug reports
Post by: selmiak on 06 May 2013, 20:03
It's actually quite simple, just generate the page's url and add it to the generic fb-sharer and twittershare url (and link it with a button image hosted on the AGS server so they can't spy on you).

one more thing atm, on the last change on the credits you somehow messed up (got rid of) the wordwrap (cutoff!) for longer game titles. This destroys the layout again. Mostly when expanding the other games of the last person in the credits, check the last game I linked above somewhere.

When you get it to work, don't forget the code tag plz, it's the same there. Actually for every formatting tag, even text centering and never used subtext[see 'sup text] (http://lol cite) though it's more annoying for spoilers and code. But that should be a one fix thing for all these tags at once. except for table cells in forums (that is also close to never used) and lists I see no use for formatting every line singled out so keeping these in seems okay to me.

It seems if you search for games in the database and you enter a search term (e.g. "quest") where the search results exceed one page,
you get an "Invalid search!" return upon selecting the 2nd page.

(Just out of curiosity, search results in general are limited to two pages, aren't they? I get two pages of results even if I
search for "the" or "game".)

I explained this multiple times.  It's due to a database glitch.  You need to edit any post that uses non ASCII characters, replace the character with the same character again, and save.  This will then store the post in the database in the proper format (charset).

I've mentioned this once before when the titlebar was first introduced but I suppose posting an image makes things much clearer.

(http://www.bryvis.com/entertainment/other/agsf/titleannoyance.png)

As it is right now, the link to http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/ is linked to the entire DIV instead of just the image. On my computer and especially on my phone, trying to click home, I often click the empty space above sending me to the main site.

I could press the "Adventure Game Studio | Forums" text area, but with the phone I'm often clicking the collapse on AGS Games, or the Unread Posts url.

Also on a side-note, the header image DIV is one pixel too short with Chrome version 26.0.1410.64 m (but displays properly with Firefox).

Thanks!

Maybe that's a known problem:

The download counter for "The Can" (http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/site/games/game/1689/) for example doesn't seem to work.

The host site behind the download link is FileSwap.com.
With FileSwap you can't link to the download button on their site directly, so that the download file will appear
instantly (except for the very fist time). On all subsequent occasions of someone hitting the download button here in the AGS database, it changes to FileSwap and you've to
hit another download button again over there.

Not sure if that has any bearing on the issue at all though...     
Title: Re: Bug reports
Post by: AGA on 29 May 2013, 13:11
Nope.  Even if a link is dead, it'll still count it in the AGS database when you click download (the first time - multiple downloads of a game from the same IP address aren't counted).

However, I did change the way downloads are logged recently, and apparently I forgot to include the field where the games page entries' download counts are stored.  This also affects another five games that were added recently.  Luckily the number of downloads a game has is stored elsewhere, so I can accurately rebuild this information.  Give me some time and it'll be sorted!

There is something strange with the rating of this game: http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/site/games/game/710/ (http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/site/games/game/710/)

The public opinion shows

13 people have rated this game so far:
Visual: 62%
Immersion: 45%
Puzzles & Pacing: 43%
Overall Enjoyment: 42%

But the player rating on top gives it only one cup and when hovering it says "Rated 27% (13 votes)"

Where does this rating come from?

Also not a bug report, but seemed the best place to post it: be more appropriate if you ask me if the Title that appears on the top of the browser and in the tab labels was just the last part of the whole thing. Like for this page, it'd just be "Bug Reports". I don't know about others, but I often have many tabs open in the browser or windows open in the taskbar, and always having "Adventure Game..." is a bit unhelpful in immediately identifying it.
Not a major problem or anything, but it'd be cool if it could be changed.

not much a bug but...

open forum search page; expand categories; notice Creative Production is on the left, the boards for it are on the right; get nervous... 8-0

dunno how much can be done about this without breaking compatibility with adding in new boards or deleting some, but it just looks out of place.
And can the boards on the search page please be expanded on default?



when rating a game a link back to that game's page would be appropriate and helpful. atm rating a game feels like a dead end ;)


on this page the 'from the forums' shows the loginname, not the displayname
http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/site/community/


and why is there the /site/ part in every url anyways? is this a rewrite of site.php?page= ? Not that it bugs me all that much or that I would have to type that out manually in any way, but it's probably not very search engine friendly for game authors, and the displayed results may look strange. Especially the /site/games/game/####/ double games thingy on the gamepages.

Especially the /site/games/game/####/ double games thingy on the gamepages.

This is mainly because some of the folders, like /games/ already exist on the site (or at least did when I rewrote the site).  I didn't want to break links to www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/games/whatever.ext, so I chose a rewrite URL that was distinct.  And it works fine for SEO anyway, we have no problem being found!

For some reason these images were still marked as broken, even though there were valid images, stored locally.  Corrected this now, so only the handful of still broken images will show the placeholder graphic.

opening the critiques lounge thread overview and this happened only once. After reloading it was gone. But as the NEW image has width and height declarations I don't know what caused it and thought I'd just post it here because it also looks funny...

This is almost certainly a random browser error; there's no logical reason why it'd happen, unless the server somehow processed the page generation wrong.  Either way, nothing to worry about unless it starts happening regularly.

Huh?  Looks fine to me:

Actually it's just the board names placed across two columns, and it seems that where the first column is cut off depends on the systems. For example, this is how mine looks like:
x1 x2 x3 x4

The list changes to the right column after the "Recruitment" item. Actually what selmiak mentioned is probably the same thing as what you have in your screen-shot, as in your case "AGS Development" is on the left, and all its sub-forums are shoved to the right. Personally I don't think there is any thing wrong with this. It's definitely not a bug or display error.

Not sure whether this is fixable, but there have some minor but bothersome issues with the post editor and how to enter bbcode tags.

1. If your selection stretches over multiple lines, it will put a start and end tag on each line (instead of just one at the beginning and end of the selection):

Code: Adventure Game Studio
  1. [b]Example:[/b]
  2. [b][/b]
  3. [b]Multiple lines with tags inserted.[/b]

The only tag I think this behavior is appropriate for is [li].

2. Secondly, after inserting the tag, the text selection in the editing window is deselected, which is inconvenient whenever you want to add multiple tags to the same selection.

3. And is there really no way to make [code] blocks default to AGS if no parameter is given? All old posts that have code from before the tag change are currently broken.

4. Finally, the post editor used to have a link to a bbcode reference page; would it be possible to bring that back?

As the forums list is dynamically generated depending on your access levels (and the existing forums...), it's not really possible to work up an ideal design for the two column design.  All I could really do is make the list run down vertically, rather than in two columns, but that would make the list massive and clog up the page.

The parsers that deal with BBCode are massive and complex.  I can link you to the sources if you want to take a look, but as I'm no JavaScript expert this may be beyond my expertise.

As for the BBCode reference list, I was actually working on this at one point, but probably got distracted by a shiny thing.  I'll take another look soon.

I've encountered an interesting bug.

When I put a normal image and use the center aligning, like this, then the image displays as it should:

(http://websolutions.freevar.com/August_and_Onward_Images/CB_Adeel_Guide.png)

But when I put a zoomable image and use the center aligning, like this, then the image is displayed more to the right (which it shouldn't) until the mouse is hovered on it. When the mouse is hovered on the image, the image positions itself correctly:

x1 x2 x3 x4

What sorcery is this? (laugh)

There is another bug that I haven't seen mentioned yet though if it has sorry for reposting:
All new games seems to register 3 screenshots even when there is only 1.
Also if there is no screenshot at all there is no "placement" screenshot to say there is none, all it does is show as a broken image, which looks really ugly imo.

Now I have no game to add myself, so I don't know 100% sure if this is a real bug or just the creators of the games doing something wrong when adding the game.
However it seems to have happened to every game since late August. Though the broken images thing is still a "problem".

Title: Re: Bug reports
Post by: Peder 🚀 on 30 Dec 2013, 18:22
Currently the issue seems to be like this:

When in an ascending list the next/previous page button on the bottom has "desc/" at the end which is wrong.
On top all the order by buttons show "desc/" at the end of the link which imo is wrong, and only the currently active "filter" should have "desc/" in the link, while non active filters should always link to the ascending list. The border by buttons on the bottom all link to the ascending list which again then imo is correct for all but the currently active filter.

If I go into a descending list the next/previous page etc buttons on top works correctly, the order by buttons are also correct (imo). However the next/previous page on the bottom is clearly trying to include some variable but it seems to be empty as the end of the url looks like this "//".

This has probably been mentioned before but if you click on a forum post from outside the actual boards (say, from the 'recent posts' box on the main website), and then go back to the main forum index, the thread you have just looked at stills shows up as 'new'. Presumably a post only shows as read if you have clicked on it from within the forums themselves. Not that it's a problem, but something I've noticed a lot and thought I'd mention :-D
Title: Re: Bug reports
Post by: AGA on 21 Jan 2014, 13:19
Are you saying that the 'new' list on the front page still shows visited posts?  That's supposed to happen, it's the most recent posts on the forums, not just ones you haven't read...

If however you mean that visiting a post on the forums using a direct link doesn't mark that thread as read in the forums software, that doesn't seem to be true, since I just tested it...
Title: Re: Bug reports
Post by: Stupot on 21 Jan 2014, 14:54
What I mean is if I click on a link to a post (that is new to me) in the 'From the Forums' list and then go to the forum index page, the board with the post in it will still have a blue cup next to it signifying 'new posts' and if I click on that board the thread I have just visited will still have the orange 'NEW' symbol next to it.  Clicking on that will bring me to the post I have just read and not a new post.

Maybe it does mark as 'read', but it doesn't unmark as 'new'.

[edit]  Okay. I just tested it again and the orange thing didn't come up. :-[ Maybe I imagined it haha. The blue cup still did though, but I guess that's because you're bypassing that page when you jump to the post

I've been trying to hunt down the reason, but I've often noticed that threads I clicked on still show up as new. I've just not figured out why, as I can't reproduce it consistently. Possibly has something to do with my constant new-tab opening each forum page.
Title: Re: Bug reports
Post by: AGA on 22 Jan 2014, 16:42
Possibly.  I've been a member on these forums since the start, and I can't say I've ever noticed that happening.  But then I usually only have one tab open...

Yeah, I started implementing the requested dynamic zoom, but got distracted by something shiny.  I'll try to remember to take a look later today.
Title: Re: Bug reports
Post by: selmiak on 28 Jan 2014, 16:51
while you're at it, please make it that clicking the right part of the image browses on to the next image if there is another one, and clicking the left part takes you back. There are lots of free jQuery plugins that do this without much hassle ;)
Title: Re: Bug reports
Post by: AGA on 28 Jan 2014, 17:44
It's not getting stuff like this to work that's hard, it's getting it to work inside the existing design of the site.  JavaScript and PHP are easy, but getting CSS to behave properly is not!  A JQuery plugin is no good if it causes the rest of the page to go all explodey when it's visible.
Title: Re: Bug reports
Post by: selmiak on 28 Jan 2014, 18:00
I hate Javascript ;) But css is just the style, how can this go wrong with jQuery? I had problems with too many scripts depending on javascript object names, IDs, whatsoever and thus activating the wrong elements when clicked or doing nothing at all and so. All the cool pages use this 'click on image to see the next resized image' function but we can't have this? :~(
There is one thing I really don't like about the style though, it's the use of divs for the gamecredits. This screws up the lines while tables would keep it all in line. Or embed one div into the other and float it if you despise tables and want to keep divs for tabular data ;)

There, zooming.
Title: Re: Bug reports
Post by: selmiak on 31 Jan 2014, 19:21
the zooming is a good idea but not working out that great ;)
the X to close the popup gets pushed out of the screen for really large zooms, try it here (http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/site/games/game/1668/) for example. 1x zoom from the thumbnail is jumping out and blowing things up...
Maybe make it opt in when submitting a game with screens and have a checkbox for 'this screenshot is very low res and very zoomable' thingy.


edit: If someone uploads a 320x200 screenshot scaled to 640x400 I can understand when someone would like a 0,5x zoom or so. This is really tricky to get right. But funny enough, just today I made this:
(http://selmiak.bplaced.net/mag.png) (http://selmiak.bplaced.net/magblue.png)
if you want I can send you the vectors then you can resize it to your likings and maybe overlay it on the screenshots with some codemagic...

Post by: selmiak on 05 Feb 2014, 13:52
funky! About closing the popup, why not make it disappear when clicking outside of the window additionally to the X.
And now that we can zoom the screenshots I was wondering if it is really that spaceconsuming to store .png images as .png and not convert them to .jpg. You know, jpg artifacts on pixelart are even more visible when zooming in ;)

edit:
smaller magnifying glass:
(http://selmiak.bplaced.net/mag_sm.png)

smaller magnifying glass without the + because of + and - zoom (though I like the (+) one better):

Title: Re: Bug reports
Post by: AGA on 05 Feb 2014, 15:10
I'm going to change it so moving the mouse off the zoom div closes it.  I just need to make the div reliably appear somewhere it's not going to end up disappearing off the screen, make sure it doesn't open somewhere that's not under the mouse cursor (thus automatically closing itself as soon as it opens).

The JPGing has nothing to do with space, it was because I originally had thumbnails being dynamically generated (which stopped happening at some point), and didn't want the complexity of handling multiple formats.

I was planning to fiddle with the magnifier to have a plus and minus next to each other.  Or perhaps I could make it switch dynamically depending on the available options.  I'll take another look later.

Title: Re: Bug reports
Post by: DoorKnobHandle on 09 Feb 2014, 13:16
Clicking on game thumbnails does not bring you to the game page but links to the screenshot. This is probably not intended or optimal, especially for the showcase section where I click on a game that interests me but then it takes me to the image instead of the game page, then I hit back and now the showcase games are different.

I'm on Chrome FWIW.

Title: Re: Bug reports
Post by: AGA on 16 Feb 2014, 02:07
I'm afraid you'll have to learn to live with it.  I don't get paid enough (or indeed at all) to waste time getting the site to work perfectly in a browser as broken as IE.  Especially given this is a tech community, and fewer than 10% of visitors use IE.
Title: Re: Bug reports
Post by: janosbiro on 16 Feb 2014, 02:37
Volcan, I think what AGA is trying to say is that IE is not recommended to better view this site, and this is not uncommon in sites made by "techs". Users of more "alternative" browsers often like to bash IE, and unfortunately IE users too. But maybe only 10% of gamers today prefer to play Point & Click Adventures, let alone MAKE then. So the problem is not that you're part of a minority. It wouldn't be nice to ignore your complaint just because of that. But messing with IE issues is something that is probably not in the plans of this community. I bet many people here don't see why someone would like to use IE voluntarily, since they believe that IE is flawed and too slow compared to other free alternatives. I myself would pay not to use IE ever again in my life. Maybe the sites you visit are not the same kind "techs" visit, but there's a lot of web designers that think this way. See this comparative infographic for more information:

Don't let them bring you down. I use Chrome and IE and still prefer IE.
Although I can not really help, but if you have something with IE you can send me PM to find out whether it is a general problem or just about your settings.

The site and forums render just fine in up to date versions of all major browsers.  If you're using an out of date version, or some obscure browser, you can't expect it to be supported.

Expecting old versions of IE - which notoriously don't support web standards properly - to be supported is a little silly.  If I was Amazon and had a dedicated team of web developers devoted to making the site work in all conceivable browsers, maybe I would, but as it is I'm just one man doing this for free, so you have no right to *expect* anything.  So shush :P

Small but annoying issue: When using the searchbox to find a game, in the result list when I click the screenshot it directly opens the jpg. I can't use the back button of the brower to get back because my browser shows "Document Expired This document is no longer available."

Well, I wouldn't say terrible! But yeah it's messy, especially being all in one file :).

I just think it could do with a recode where the code is split into pages and maybe even have the PHP code separated from the html all together and use TWIG or something for the html + parsing data from php.
I built a MVC like system for the new AGSA site which is really nice :). Makes it easy to edit html stuff without having to dig through a lot of php code, and easy to change php code without digging through a lot of html :).

I just think it would be a huge benefit for the long run ;).

It worked fine a couple of weeks ago, though. Something must have changed since then.

But I don't think it's a good idea to advice Chrome users to "just use another browser" for this site, because of its huge market share (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Countries_by_most_used_web_browser). Every other forum I frequent works fine in Chrome.

Post by: Peder 🚀 on 20 Mar 2014, 17:59
Off course!
The best thing would be to figure out why it's not working and then get it fixed, all I can tell from it, is that it seems to be generated by the forum integration, because the 403 error is within the part where the forum integration is called via php.
And whenever the forum integration fails, it will stop anything else from showing.. But this issue only happens to me in Chrome, so I purely suggested to use another browser if you really need to update your games RIGHT NOW :).

Hopefully AGA will figure this out and get it fixed.. I might do some searching myself.

Considering how often IE Fans are advised to change their browser, just because it isn't compatible with the website. I think Peder's advice is fair enough. :=

I was also getting a bunch of 403 errors about this time last week, particularly while browsing the Wiki (but which would then extend to any forum page as well). If I just waited half a minute they went away.

And this was with Firefox.

I've tried changing the game page on my laptop, which also runs Chrome, and this works fine. Also, I'm pretty sure I haven't done an update of Chrome (on my desktop) since the last time it worked. So I doubt it's actually the browser causing this, although I'm not sure what else it would be.

I was being silly and thought I'd go and add a page to the wiki today, when suddenly the whole thing exploded.

First (despite being logged in on the forums), it asked me to log in to my account. Again, I was already logged in, so it seemed rather odd bringing me to the forum login page with my avatar and user control panel appearing, but I logged in anyway. It then brought me to the forum homepage. Then I clicked back on the link for the wiki, and I got this:

Code: Text
  1. MediaWiki internal error.
  2.  
  3. Original exception: exception 'MWException' with message 'SkinTemplate::makeTalkUrlDetails given invalid pagename User:' in /var/www/ags/w/includes/SkinTemplate.php:721

Title: Re: Bug reports
Post by: Monsieur OUXX on 14 Oct 2014, 05:57
Some things that should be fixed:

- The everlasting Bug tracker permissions bug : I cannot see the bugs in the bug tracker. According to CW, it's because I'm a member of several groups in the AGS forum (AGSA and others), and there is a bug.

- The hypertext button not taking in account the highlighted text: in any forum, when you highlight a text, then click on the "hypertext link" button, the website uses that text as the capion, and only asks you for the url. not the AGS forum: it asks you for both url and caption, then inserts the whole hypertext link immediately before the text that was highlighted. 99% of times you end up typing the text twice and having to manually delete the highlighted text afterwards.

- The formatting buttons deselecting the highlighted text. Try this: highlight some text, then click on "bold" or "italic". The tags get properly inserted, but then the text gets deselected. That's utterly annoying when you want to apply several formatting tags in a row (e.g.: url after color, color after bold). Each time, you have to re-select the text. That's not the usual behaviour on most sites.

Weird bug, seems to me like the markitup code disappears when you go to preview the post and the old bbcode etc code shows instead.

Seems to have been because the preview action uses action=post2 instead of post, and it was not set to be included on that page.
I've added post2 in the db settings so now it should show on preview too.

Can't really do dynamic labels, since the button text is part of the image, and I have no idea which font it uses.  Indeed, for the same reason I can't update the button text at all.  The least inaccurate option would probably be to just have all game types say "Download This Game!" and for it to redirect to the game's purchase page in the case of a commercial game?

still happening...

I'm not sure how the auth stuff works since it uses the AGS forum users but from looking at this error you get, it seems your username is not being passed at all to the wiki after logging in which is causing this error.

I'd look into it but I got nothing to do with the wiki and the forum integration so you're probably better off waiting for AGA to look into it...

This was because all thumbs were being resized to 320x200 on the main page, as a holdover from the old standard resolutions days.  Now it will scale the width to 320 and adjust the height accordingly.  Which may not be ideal, but we can't account for every possible resolution in the site's design; hopefully this imperfect compromise will work with the crazy resolutions possible in the new engine!

click on the first thumbnail, then in the imagepopup browse through the images.
I don't know how the display is handled in the popup, I'd just use getimagesize(); on every displayed image and not assume that all images for one game are in the same ratio or size.

Previously that indeed didn't work, but I fixed it last night.  Sure you don't have an old version of the page cached or something?  Now all images should be scaled up / down according to their true dimensions.

Hi
This is more a suggestion than a bug.
It's about zoomable images in Chrome. I noticed that the thread was locked, and I wasn't sure about opening a new one.

Since version 41 Chrome accepts a CSS property that would enforce the nearest-neighbour resizing:

image-rendering: pixelated; [Link] (https://developers.google.com/web/updates/2015/01/pixelated?hl=en)

Please consider adding it to the zoomable images, the blurry pixel art makes me sad.
Title: Re: Bug reports
Post by: Peder 🚀 on 22 Jul 2016, 22:43
I've not read up on this feature but do you know if any other browsers pick up this CSS property and if any of them have issues?
I agree too that blurred pixel art is not nice, but would this property make non pixel art screenshots look different too?

Worth doing some testing I guess :).
Title: Re: Bug reports
Post by: CaesarCub on 22 Jul 2016, 22:57
The way CSS works, it ignores any property not supported, so it shouldn't overlap or break any other CSS styles.
Having some CSS like this:

Code: CSS
  1. image-rendering: -moz-crisp-edges;
  2. image-rendering: pixelated;

Would make Firefox take the first value and ignore the second (since the implementation of pixelated is not done yet (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=856337))
And it would make Chrome ignore -moz-crisp-edges, since it's a mozilla specific value.

Here is a link with more details [Link] (https://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/Web/CSS/image-rendering)
Title: Re: Bug reports
Post by: Peder 🚀 on 22 Jul 2016, 23:43
Oh, I know how CSS works, I was purely wondering if the pixelated value if supported by any other browsers have any known issues with them ;).
Hopefully AGA will read this and try it out...

From what I can see on the css, you have a "@-moz-document domain(adventuregamestudio.co.uk)" that will make sure that the CSS block is only run on Mozilla browsers and skipped by Chrome, IE and the rest.
Code: CSS
  1. @-moz-document domain(adventuregamestudio.co.uk)
  2.         {
  3.         li.avatar a img.avatar
  4.                 {

  7.                 max-height:120px;
  8.                 max-width:120px;
  9.                 }
  10.         div.post img[src$=".png"], div.post img[src$=".gif"], div.post img[src$=".PNG"], div.post img[src$=".GIF"]
  11.                 {
  12.                 image-rendering:optimizeSpeed;                          /* Legal fallback                 */
  13.                 image-rendering: pixelated;
  14.                 image-rendering:-moz-crisp-edges;                       /* Firefox                        */
  15.                 image-rendering:-o-crisp-edges;                         /* Opera                          */
  16.                 image-rendering:-webkit-optimize-contrast;      /* Chrome (and eventually Safari) */

I used to use Firefox, but then a driver issue caused it to crash my computer. So I started using Chrome (which didn't crash my computer for some reason) until I got the driver issue fixed. And then I continued using Chrome, because why not.

Also, that picture is still blurry for me, but I'm using Version 51.0.2704.103 m, so I'm guessing that my version is merely out of date. Which is nice to know.

It's not really a bug, I guess, but I swear the timestamp of the AGS forum is 2 or 3 minutes too fast.

I first noticed this a few months ago when I loaded the page and the time stated was one minute faster than the one on my phone. Fast forward a few months and there's now a 3 minutes difference. I don't think it's my phone's time being too slow. I've checked against multiple sources (TV, train station etc) and it's been pretty much bang on.

Anyone else noticed this?

The game credits on a game's page are still wierd and broken imho.

First of all: Is there a reason why the people involved with making the game are hidden? They should be visible at plain sight, just add another light blue box so we have About this game, Credits (new!) and Comments. Now everyone can see you madez a game. Btw, there is a border-radius css element that works in all major browsers now, no need to have 3 css classes defined and 3 div elements for 1 box with rounded corners, just saying, it displays fine, I was just looking through the html and noticed this.

All the other games an AGSer has worked on can still be hidden behind one click, this is okay imho, though the link to click on could be the words: has worked on <a> ## other games >> [/url]. But this list behind that link is still broken, please just use a freaking table to display that data rather than floating divs, this screws up the layout! If the gamename is too long the gamename goes over two lines while the credits don't, so you have 2 of your roles in making 2 different games displayed next to only one gamename over 2 lines and this drags on through the whole list. If you did too much and your role goes over 1 line the 2nd line displays somewhere halfways into the gamename. Please just use tables or wrap the gamename and the role into yet another div. Using tables for data like this is perfectly fine, especially when the display looks better afterwards. Using a wrapper div is probably faster and should work without any additional css for the wrapper div, but clutters up the html.

I've promoted the AGS Awards at another forum, but it appears that the registration process is giving people some problems.  I've tried to help as much as I can but this is the main complaint I've seen, no idea whether the problem is with the AGS forum itself or not?

"I finally got the questions right and was sent to the registration page... filled out user name... password and that capticha and said yes to was I human.... all IO get is ;

Fatal error: require_once(): Failed opening required '/home/ags/html/forums/Sources/Subs-Tapatalk.php' (include_path='.:/usr/share/php:/usr/share/pear') in /home/ags/html/forums/Sources/Register.php on line 392

Even went to a different browser... same thing... I give up!"

I also can't remember if, once someone's registered, they have to click a link in a confirmation email - if so that could be the problem maybe?

Hmm... just noticed that "Tapatalk" think, I'll check if they were using a mobile device.

The "This board" and "This topic" search filters for the search box in the top-right corner of the forum pages don't work: it always searches through the whole forums. Similarly, the filters on the search result page don't work: it ignores any changes you make, e.g. if you tell it to only look for posts by a certain user, or "match any words". So you always have to go to the main search page to configure the search.

https://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/site/games/game/1698/

It was actually because both games had their images marked as broken.  I've gone through all marked images now, and corrected those that weren't actually broken.  I also changed the reporting mechanism so I'll get an email automatically when something's reported as broken, so I can double check.

The linking button is the one that looks like a chain.  Works for me on both themes, on quick reply and full reply, in multiple browsers:

I set the forum to use HTTPS by default, and the post buttons seem to load okay now.  But yes, browsers will never accept it as being truly safe, since it uses mixed content.  Might be easier to just turn SSL off on the whole AGS site, since there's no real need for it.  Unless it's a truly closed system there'll still be enough holes for a determined hacker to get in anyway.

It seems email notifications are broken. I've not been getting notifications either for PMs or moderator alerts recently.

Did you check the spam ?
No matter how hard I mark AGS mails as not being spam, they keep stubbornly going to the spam folder.

Yes, I checked spam, and they're not there.

Curious.

Apparently the notification email address was acting too spammy.  Should be unblocked and sending again now.

The "All games list (http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/site/games/allgames/)" says that there are 23 pages of results, but after page 20 the list is blank. I assume that there actually are somewhere between 2200 and 2300 games in the db, and that the list just can't return more than 2000.

Pagination (and much else...) is totally messed up atm.  I've rewritten this all in a refactored version of the site, which I'm 80% done with.  Should be released soonish.

There’s an interesting quirk I’ve noticed on the “games you have and haven’t rated” page.

If you go to that page but aren’t logged in, a bunch of games come up as “games you have rated”

Here is the list in question (in case it helps work out the cause):

Nelly Cootalot: Spoonbeaks Ahoy!
Primordia
King's Quest II+ VGA
A Tale of Two Kingdoms
Chance Of The Dead
The Perfidious Petrol Station
Pester Quest
Starship Quasar
Class Notes
