On Breaking User Cards and Post Layouts


  • BINNED

    I just realized your new title breaks Discourse.

    Well done, extra marks.


  • Discourse touched me in a no-no place

    I've been seeing it for a while with @RaceProUK's messages. Some sort of minor differences there I guess. (Browser window width? Font differences? I dunno.)


  • BINNED

    Well, I am at 90% zoom... maybe that's confusing the CSS? After all, we all know that CSS is awesome. :cup.png:


  • SockDev

    It started when I added 'Ravenclaw' to my long name; I thought it'd get trimmed, but it didn't. Combined with using one of the longer badge titles; it seems the Discodevs didn't take that into account…

    I see it 100% on my desktop (screenshots tomorrow, if I remember).

    Nope, I've seen it before when replying to blakeyrat. At ×1 zoom.



  • Not to mention right there :point_up_2:



  • Is this a discussion about whether long names and badge titles are truncated?



  • This is a discussion of the name of the repliee being on a second line. (I think)

    It could probably be Jeffed elsewhere by now.



  • Aaaah... I see...

    I think its probably the badge title, we can use @HardwareGeek as a control—he is also a Viscount.


  • BINNED

    I might turn it into a discussion that you somehow* broke Discourse with your usercard.

    If anyone want to try and repro:

    1. refresh page / enter a topic again
    2. click @tar's avatar
    3. if this is not a browser weirdness, you should be sent up the thread for... reasons
    4. next click should work fine

    :wtf:


    * "somehow" does not express my surprise, but merely my current ignorance of the method of breakage.



  • Usercard seem a bit wonky in general right now. Opening any usercard, and then doing... something that isn't clicking on the usercard... seems to cause me to land on the user's activity page...

    Although I did repro the specific weirdness associated with my usercard. What is up with that, eh?


  • area_deu

    Wow.
    Someone said that only mod posts cause that, but apparently, there's more to it that that.


  • BINNED

    Might've been me at the time actually, now that you mention that. Or someone, I now remember being in a discussion about this, but sometimes Discourse does something so stupid I actually forget I already saw it and I'm shocked by the level of broken once again.

    In any case, I do remember that buttumption, whoever made it, and agreeing with it given the limited dataset that was available. But we found an outlier now so...



  • :wtf:

    What I've observed: Clicking a user's avatar opens the user card. Clicking it again used to close it again (I think). Clicking it again now takes you to the user's profile page. (Click on white space to close it.) I have arrived at user pages several times as a result — particularly annoying in the middle of a topic with 200-300 unread posts, and going back takes you the first such post, rather than the 150th, which you were reading when you wondered whether the poster had registered just to post that bit of idiotic blather (yes, he did).

    A-ha! I might not be crazy!

    With annotations:

    How I did it?
    Clicking too much and too fast!


  • area_deu

    In other news, the filtering and PM buttons might be affected by either the <hr/> bug or a completely new one.


  • BINNED

    I would like to thank my manager, my teachers, and especially my mom.

    It is with great joy that I accept this spoon, this keyboard, and this noble title as recognition of my awesome by this forum and it's members.

    I am truly touched.

    Suckers!



  • @aliceif said:

    Hmmm....

    It's also interesting that the long name is slightly mangled — combining characters are shown individually, instead of combined with the relevant base character. Possibly, however, that may not be Discourse's fault; it may be a Unicode rendering fail on @aliceif's computer; it matches the rendering in the post visible behind the broken user card.

    As promised:


  • SockDev

    Might as well report it afterwards.
