Need to refresh to reply



  • I remember someone talking somewhere about needing to refresh before they could reply. It just happened to me and I couldn't find a topic in Bugs, so here one is.

    I opened up the js console and saw this error:

    0_1462912725448_upload-a1faeb58-2def-4fb4-9fe1-83d3078ec292

    Yup, the need to refresh to reply happens to me every 30-70 topics or so. I can always tell it is going to happen too, because the reply form takes MUCH longer than usual to load, and/or I have to press "reply" twice.

    If you guys just opened topics in new tabs, the way that nature intended, you wouldn't have these problems. :P

    I always do that. I still had to CTRL-F5 in order to make this reply.



  • Happens a lot for me.



  • @Lorne-Kates I got it a few times today, and noticed some occasional sluggishnesh. Was awful a little bit ago. I complained to @ben_lubar on IRC and he ssh'd into the server. One NodeBB process was using 25% of total RAM for some reason so he restarted it and now it seems snappy again.

    I would make a quip about nodeBB being trwtf, but frankly .NET worker threads cause the exact same issues sometimes.
    Sidenote, I had to reload to post this :D


  • mod

    WTF are you all doing to run into this issue? I've never once had to refresh to post.



  • I think I had this in official likes topic, and it also applied to hamburger menu and all other buttons.

    [edit] and now it works in this topic.... I wonder if it has to do with people posting while you are replying or editing. Too lazy to test...

    [edit2] nope. But some nice jellypotato.

    [edit3] but also on iPad, so that's different.



  • @abarker said in Need to refresh to reply:

    Nothing. I load up a page, read it as per usual, and sometimes when I click reply, it does nothing. When I click it again, it loads up, slowly, but the submit button does nothing. Only reloading the page fixes it.



  • @abarker said in Need to refresh to reply:

    Me either.

    @abarker said in Need to refresh to reply:

    I've had it happen maybe once or twice, where the submit button goes inactive because something timed out. Other people have mentioned it before--I'm not sure it's the same thing is what's going on in this thread.



  • I suspect it's probably related to the cooties we were having yesterday (and possibly on other days, of course).

    Usually happens on mobile for me. Also, it does seem to work eventually but it takes a good minute for it to respond usually.

    All I'm doing is opening threads in new windows, the way nature intended.

    When I do that the police gets called.

    More debug from a page where clicking edit on a post failed to do anything (yes, I know not all of these refer to nodebb)

  • @mott555 Also, seems like I have to refresh anytime I want to post anything. However, once I have a successful post that tab is good to post again without a refresh. But I Tab All The Links™ so I run into this all the time.

    I'm using Waterfox 46.0.1 which is just Firefox compiled for 64-bit.

    Having actually looked for when this happens, this is exactly what I run into - I cannot post unless the page has been refreshed since opening.



  • I have once again confirmed this happens (to me) more often than not.

    There's nothing in the console.



  • @PJH I find it sometimes happens to me if I try to use the keyboard shortcut, but I don't recall any time when clicking the button didn't work

    It might have been me.

    @boomzilla said in Need to refresh to reply:

    It happens to me every single time. I don't always have the error in the console that you have but sometimes I do.



  • @abarker said in Need to refresh to reply:

    That's a lie! I do open topics in new tabs.

    Incidentally, it seems the second reply without a reload works okay. At least, it did for this reply.


  • Discourse touched me in a no-no place

    As I noted elsewhere, this also seems to affect the FF <details> shim, in that it won't work until the page is refreshed.
