"New Posts" indication not working

The 'speech bubble' icons on http://www.gramophone.co.uk/forum aren't changing from orange ('No New Posts') to red ('New Posts') for me when there are new posts in a forum.

Sure, it's not a major problem, but it's a bit irritating.

(And the 'rich text' editor is doing some seriously odd & random things with links and text formatting, but that'll have to wait for another post...)

RE: "New Posts" indication not working

Hi Jon - yes, we've definitely seen apparently inconsistent behaviour of the speech bubbles, but we haven't clearly identified under what circumstances they do or do not appear correct.  I ay 'apparently' because I'm getting the impression that it's the wording that doesn't match the behaviour - ie when there's a new thread, as opposed to post in an existing thread, they work.  As you say, it's not top of the priority list, but it's at least on it.

As for editor behaviour, can you tell me what browser you're using and how it's manifesting itself?

regards

JD

Thanks.

I'm using Chrome 5.0.342.9.

The weird formatting/link issues occur when I preview messages - paragraphs can be unexpectedly indented, or there'll be a line break in the middle of a word. That only happens infrequently. 

Links seem to have caused rather more of a problem recently - they get replaced by little "anchor" icons, and whole blocks of text before/after the vanished link will have disappeared also.  

As you'll gather, it's a bit hard to explain, but I'm happy to take screen shots next time it happens.

 

P.S. Predictably, now that I'm documenting it, no problems are manifesting as I write & preview this!

So here's a link - http://www.gramophone.co.uk/forum - just to see if that causes a problem.

P.P.S. Nope, that's working fine, too. I'll reply again if/when I get more weirdness.

RE: Home

Thanks - I could have predicted that you were using either Chrome or Safari :)

We've seen some issues with the rich text editor in those two browesers (some of the formatting options simply don't work, for example), and we're investigating the use of a different rich text editor, which we're hoping to have the results of in the next week or so.  If its behaviour is demonstrably better than the one we're using now, we'll drop it in as a replacement.
