Trying to use actual browser features, such as find, completely Belgium s discourse



  • Try to Ctrl+F -> Discourse search (wtf? whatever nbd) -> Ctrl+F Browser find in page -> Type 'Call m' -> Reply window opens, lose focus on find dropdown

    Belgium you respond to browser events correctly. If I don't have focus on the page itself your keyboard nav should be doing nothing.

    Browser: Chrome v whatever the current version is

    Apparently this only works in multiple page topics?

    By design, I'm afraid.

    F3 is not captured, not sure if it works in Chrome.

    Hitting CtrlF twice in a row will work.

    But with Discurse's loading / unloading of posts the usefulness of built-in browser search is questionable to say the least.

    FTFY



  • Yeah it works, but my complaint was that it was opening the reply window as well. This may have been fixed because I can no longer repo

    I can, actually, just by typing fast enough... None of those keys by itself should activate the reply window.... Hmmm....

    EDIT: Scratch that, c is "create new topic" when no text box is focused, slow connection so it took a while....

    Try ? when you have no inputs focused.



  • Have you tried refreshing the tabs you can repo on? Maybe it's just server cooties causing it not to display.

    Nah, works reliably, but I'm currently tethering to a mobile connection that's just about bordering on 3G. Guess it's waiting for the server to confirm my session or something before popping up.



  • It's "repro", ffs.

    You get a like for a legitimately humorous use of an emoji. Well done sir, I'd take my hat off but we don't have animated avatars.

  • Hmm. Chrome on Win8.1. Ctrl+F only opens the browser search for me. I have to click the :mag: to open Discosearch.

    That's different to what I thought happened last time I tried it...



  • That's odd, same here.
    It used to open the Discosearch on a topic, but the browser search on the topic list.

    Now it's browser all the time.

    I'd say that's a bug but... the question is, do you really want it fixed?



  • Well with Infiniscroll™ the browser search is pretty useless.

    Discosearch™ with its faults is a lot better than it originally was.

    I've had better success with

    psql -d discourse -c 'select id, cooked from posts where raw ilike "%search term%"'

    in the past. Then again that's not really a feature available to most users, nor is it guaranteed to pick up stuff in the past day...

    IP addresses, email addresses, password hashes, private messages, (and since they haven't written the stuff to display it yet) sex and gender for those who've filled them out.



  • @PJH said:

    sex ... for those who've filled them out.

    So just a few hundred entries of "yes please" then? :laughing:



  • I'll see if I can get anonymous data out of it - just need to find which of the 200 tables they've stuffed that data into...

    Chrome on Linux still gives me discosearchbox. Unless the editor has focus. Then I get a native find box.

    Whoever that was, I agree wholeheartedly.



  • From the talk page: "Hello all! Because I started this page as an assignment for a class..."


  • I survived the hour long Uno hand

    This article is the subject of an educational assignment at Rice University supported by the Wikipedia Ambassador Program during the 2013 Q1 term. Further details are available on the course page.

    :wtf:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Education_Program:Rice_University/Poverty,_Gender,and_Human_Development_Section_1(Spring_2013)

    A key requirement of the course is the development of an approved contribution to Wikipedia, either a substantial revision of an existing article or a new article. Students will also review existing pages, write proposals for their contributions, participate in appropriate project groups, and provide additional contributions (such as to talk pages or edits of other entries). The assigned will be staged, with portions due at specific dates during the course.

    :wtf: :wtf: :wtf:

    We've had that too - but that was on computers' use in medicine, not this kind of asspullery.
