Leaving rep no longer causes an immediate page refresh.

The old version seemed pretty smart about how much redrawing was necessary (not much usually).

The preview pane for messages grows a little past where it should stop when pasting code. See attached screen shot with a very unhappy avatar.

OK one more bug... If you edit a past you have already created then add some code in there with code tags, click "Go Advanced", then preview your post -- it will not render the code inside of code tags. If you submit anyway then it will show up with code tags but the preview function is broke if you edit posts after the fact.

Seems that way. Before I gave you reputation on your post, you had 485 points:

Afterwards, you had 508 (notice the extra dot beside your profile):

Another bug I already mentioned can also be seen in John's attachments.
At the top of the second pic it reads: "Community reputation points awarded: 508" which is Dani's rep.
At the bottom of the second pic, it reads: 967 points total. Which is John's rep.

Leaving rep no longer causes an immediate page refresh.

The old version seemed pretty smart about how much redrawing was necessary (not much usually).

Neither does reading a thread.

Also when you edit a post and press 'back' on the browser, your post will disappear. This bug has been in DW before (like a year or something ago.)

I find this solution extremely distasteful. You can't make those old language tags backwards-compatible? For a long time now, we've been posting (and telling other people) to highlight their code with, for example . While defaulting to the language of the forum might work for most snippets, [B]a lot[/B] of code that's been posted in a different language will now be highlighted with the wrong syntax.

What about shell scripting? Do you just assume it's bash?[code=cplusplus]. While defaulting to the language of the forum might work for most snippets, a lot of code that's been posted in a different language will now be highlighted with the wrong syntax.

The "967 points" thing was unchanged by my rep (compare it with the first screenshot), so I really have no clue what that's supposed to be representing.

Dani's screen is showing your rep on her page. The bottom total shows the rep of the currently logged in user viewing the page.

Ah. I was a little slow on that one.

After you hit the "Go Advanced" button to post on a thread you have an option to insert an email link. Shouldn't that be removed since daniweb tries to keep discussions on-thread? Email me!

Also when you use the EMAIL tags it links to a page that doesn't exist and you get a 404. Click on the email me link above

Thank you for notifying me that email subscriptions weren't working. I fixed them, and hence the flow of emails all rushing in at once..

Ya noticed that, lol. Cheers for prompt fix :)

Reputation fixed

No it's not, I just 'repped' you for that post and it still added to your total :)

My own rep however doesn't show up anymore on your profile, so that one is fixed!

Previously there was a permalink for each post on the post number. Has this functionality been removed, or has it been moved elsewhere?

0

The userrep page was recoded.

The permalink for each post on the post number was removed because it linked to a page just containing that one post, and I felt that was very unuseful because people who ended up on the page never grasped anything in the context of the discussion. It also created duplicate content issues with Google.

[edit]
Example taken from the search:
http://www.daniweb.com/forums/post979899.html#post979899
[/edit]

That search option returns all of the posts with the "permalink" post URL that shows the entire threads content. Wouldn't something like that be acceptable? Then we could still have the handy permalink on the post # :)

code=php is not working in the PHP forum.

EDIT: Just went back to get a screenshot to post, now it is working as before :$

Two bugs that I have found. One is that the emails sometimes show the raw html code instead of displaying the styled content. Could this be possibly something to do with the email headers.

Also when viewing daniweb in the Opera browser, there is a minor bug with the bottom border. The bottom border is separated from the main page with a gray gap. However in Internet Explorer this isn't the case. I have attached a pic to help explain.

I also get the plain text emails every so often.

There is also an issue when giving rep. I don't get my lovely alert() message:

Please give a detailed error message expaining when you get html vs plaintext mail, which emails it happens for, and please show me the contents of the email and email headers.

The tag feature is handy!
When I click on Java I get all the threads tagged with Java.
If I do this for C# or C++ I get an invalid tag specified error.

I tried but exchange/outlook don't actually retain a copy of the original email message so no luck. The headers themselves are fine but I think the message body is whats screwed up -- and if I had to guess I think it would be the boundaries for the alternate view text/html.

Plaintext email (bad):

Notice that my spam filter recognized one as an html-enabled email and not the other. Something in the message is buggered up I think

Ok so you got both emails within minutes of each other, and one was good and the other wasn't?

Correct. It is rather random. I compared 4 good emails and 4 bad emails but found nothing consistent in the headers.
