New WSO LIVE - Report Bugs PLEASE

Subscribe

Ok, so we managed to upgrade the site from Drupal 7-> Drupal 8.  Shout out to my kick-ass development team.

This will help us bring the site into the next decade with a more modern back-end infrastructure (even though now it seems more like a nuisance with some bugs)...

So far, we know we have:

  • Some social 1 click login issues
  • @mentions look broken 

Let us hear what else is broken for you please since we are a small team.

Thanks!

Patrick

There were some minor UI changes you may notice like the default monkey icon is now our new logo in grey, the anonymous posters have a larger Industry color icon for easier identification.  Stuff like that.  Near future a lot more UI improvements including main navigation, home page, etc...  a lot more course announcements coming!

when you hover over a post on one of the forums, the text is blurry whereas it used to be clear

 

thanks Patrick, I'm sure this wasn't easy

  1. User Profile -> User Tracker -> Comments only display one page of recent comments. Topics seem to be working fine.
  2. Not sure if bug or feature, but the comment no longer displays the comment itself - instead, it's the post subject. The SB count disappeared too.
  3. Another thing - I seem to be missing SBs lol. MS stayed the same however. This ended up making me drop on the WSO Ratio ranking from approx. #17 to #41.
  4. I like the new WYSIWYG feature when commenting.

Update:

1.  still some odd behavior here on user profile pages... we'll try to hammer this out this week

2.  is this for PMs?

3.  Fixed

4. Thanks - although the new editor introduced a huge slew of bugs including some spacing ones in OP/comments we're still working through...

The good news is the site should be about ~3x faster today given some performance changes we just did...

Nice! Can't begin to image what a nightmare this was, especially with the massive amount of content you have.

  • I don't get notifications about receiving silver bananas
  • I'm not getting a notification when someone is replying to my post or thread
  • I see my banana total go up but there is no easy way to check the summary of bananas and monkey shits per post .

The little notification bell button no longer displays that little drop down of recent SBs and Replies when i click, rather it directs to notification page. Is that feature retired?

Yep it is, didn't see your initial comment. I cleared my cache, etc., even re-uploaded my avatar image twice (regular and cropped into a circle) and it's still happening.

 

Occurs on desktop (Chrome), mobile (Chrome), and the app. All look the same.

 

I've taken screenshots here. I've also included the 2 images of what my avatar should look like (cropped and un-cropped).

 

Thanks!

Maximum effort.

Have seen several issues, especially in mobile

- on mobile, probably the worst one is that where there should be a comment, there will be an advertisement instead.  So two people may be discussing something and replying to eachother, but I miss out on what one of them says because an ad has taken its place.  reached out to support but still doesn't appear to be fixed

- on mobile, sometimes I'll click a link to something that I guess isn't available for mobile (company interview insight, job posting, essentially anything that's not a thread) and I'll get an error message and will have to log back in which is super annoying

- on mobile, if I click into a thread with like 150  comments spread across two pages, I only see the yellow boxes showing what comments are new on page one, when i click the next page or page after there are no more yellow comments and it's not easily to tell which I've read / which I haven't

 

Think these are the major ones... but if I remember anymore will let you know

I don't know if this is intentional, but on the app, the IB Course advert will completely replace a random post on a thread. You can't see the post it replaces at all, and it's really annoying because if someone made a reply to that post, you've lost all the context.

Not sure if this is a bug or a feature, but Swagon appears to be gone post the latest update.

Note: this appears to be an issue both on the webpage and mobile

Also, for DMs Idk if this is a bug or what, but before the upgrade, the chat was divided into multiple pages. Now, its one giant page, which can be a bit irritating because I have to scroll all the way down (for people I speak to a lot).

 
Aug 21, 2020 - 7:22pm

yeah, not a bug - completely different animal, but we can make a UI improvement probably to anchor it to the latest messages instead of forcing user to scroll... wasn't an option for us to stick with threaded messages on PM.  there was no update from D7 -> D8 for the PM module.

I think you should sticky this on the top of each forum rather than just IB.

we're already drowning and have about 5 critical bugs, 20 high priority and about 130 others...  so I think we're good ;)   

Things are getting better but performance, scrolling is still a big problem -- some members still having issues with login/social login, subscriptions for threads still not live (tomorrow hopefully), resetting pw, saving new pw or any update to profile (fixed today), company database filtering issues, UX/UI issues across desktop, mobile site and app...  then we have a huge backlog of other issues that members can't see like how our system works in the back end support for our students in the LMS.  support team having to do more manual stuff as some of the automated tie ins with zendesk broke.

varnish caching/warm up script for logged out users is apparently not working either so the list of things to fix is enormous...  we knew this was coming, but I'd be lying if I didn't say it has been worse than expected.

All of these are not going to get fixed overnight and some of them are actually very tough because they aren't easy to replicate (the caching layers alone on the site are very complex to try and keep performance snappy)...but I do know we'll keep pushing and that every week there will be less and less issues.

This was BY FAR the biggest migration we have done ever in our 14 years (took over 9 months) and it was a nightmare....but I believe it will pay dividends in 2021-2025 as we are able to introduce new features on a much more modern platform.

 Thanks,

Patrick

this should be fixed now...please let me know if not!  also, if you can share what you are doing when you have a crash that would be immensely helpful so we can try to recreate it... also, we are bringing on board a full-time QA person to help us spot all these bugs faster!

That was one of the reasons why we were doing this update, it was a huge pain for adding the new features to the app.

We didn't have the messages, company db and many more things which we can add now.

I think the app is going to get a lot of new updates after we deal with the all bugs posted here.

 
Aug 22, 2020 - 1:32pm

Lot of posts about the search function already, I would add that the tagging feature in posts could use some improvement as well. I think maybe just cleaning up the tags would go a long way.

The Quote function seems hit or miss. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. (Chrome)

Thanks...we are looking at our commenting system in general and may use different ones depending on if it's mobile site vs desktop, etc...  this new one / ck editor has introduced a lot of issues including (i think) scroll bug that people have mentioned above.  We're on it.  Thanks for the patience
