Website bug reports requests - By Aurélien Rodot

Somethings doesn't work as it should ? A label is misleading ? Please tell us !

Blocking issues

  • Mobile version doesn't work
  • "+" buttons sometimes redirects to empty link instead of https://gamebuino.com/create
  • User input isn't sanitized server side. Vulnerability to Javascript injections => use html tags whitelist

Annoying issues

  • Inconsistent up/down vote icons
  • Image is required for creations, even for text-based tutorials
  • When trying to save an incomplete creation, what's missing isn't obvious, you don't know it failed to save
  • You can't save a creation draft if fields are not filled
  • "Save draft" & "Publish" buttons
  • When uploading an avatar the uploading message is in french
  • When the last reply to a topic is from the original poster, only one user picture shows up in the topics list
  • Can't "reply" to the first post of a topic
  • Can't delete a topic
  • Can't edit a topic/creation tags
  • Can't edit a topic title
  • Edited post indicator isn't consistent between posts and replies
  • Avatar crop doesn't work
  • Froala's floating toolbar is hidden by the nav bar when scrolling down
  • After login, we are redirected to home page instead of the previous page
  • Logged out each time you come back
  • Video upload doesn't work

Cool features

  • Code highlighting
  • See who up/down voted on hover
  • Automatically convert URL
  • Post views counter

Thoughts:

* positivels surprised that navigating etc. works fine with JS disabled
* login with JS disabled works, but is a hassle
* posting messages with JS disabled isn't working
* mobile is heavily broken, this feels like noone ever visited via a smartphone (must-have these days)

For the games:

* Guests are more interested in the game name than the author name
* somehow support multiple authors as, well, we are an open community to collaborate with multiple people (see doppler - drakker and me both work on it)

You'll be happy to know it's all in the works for the next website release! It's still an alpha version... feel free to report any other bugs :)

I just noticed that when uploading an avatar the uploading message is in french.

Also, being able to use avatars with a transparent background would be nice!

List updated, thanks!

  • there is no indication if a post got edited and when (EDIT: apparently this only applies to top post, other replies have an edited indicator with timestamp)
  • no way to delete individual posts (some might argue that that is a feature, i leave that up to you)
  • common markdown ascii formatting isn't automatically converted to format stuff, you **have** to use the buttons up there, which, well, is sub-optimal. Or if not markdown then other stuff like bb-code or something
  • there is no way to change the tags after publishing a topic
  • pasted urls, such as https://gamebuino.com/create don't become clickable

There is pen in the top right corner with the date showing on hover

I'm not sure what froala can do, I looked it up and didn't see markdown support, maybe we could add shortcuts.

You mean a creation ?

The avatar crop option doesn't work, it displays the whole image stretched.


Also, the forum truncates long messages with a "read the original" link that loads another page... that is weird. If I click on a post, I want to see the whole thing.

Author :  Sorunome

When typing in a code block and then adding a new line afterwards we sometimes still have the monospace font, which also causes long lines not to wrap. See here: https://gamebuino.com/community/topic/localization-api

Every time I visit the site I seem to be logged out.


Video upload doesn't work. It said something went wrong and my Chromium window stopped responding (other windows were fine though). I had to kill it to fix it. On Firefox it still says that something went wrong but at least it doesn't become unresponsive. The video I was trying to upload was 74 megs... maybe there's a file size limit.

Our dev is back, the bug list is shortening more than it's lengthening now!

Yay! Does that mean we should start reporting all the little things that are off? :P

Nah, really, i noticed right away when logging on today that some things changed, as i was happy it displayed all participants avatars on the board listing ^.^

this is a test post

EDIT: feel free to delete this post, i used it to test some more JS injection ideas (via HTML attributes), and they were luckily un-successful! Great job! :D

Even the HTML5 videos are sanitized at the moment, he's adjusting the little things :)

feature ideas:

  • on a post which was replied to something, clicking that "replied" icon jumps to the post it was a reply of (or similar)
  • keyboard shortcut for submitting the post (alt+s?)

EDIT: wooo new page o.o sooo another feature idea:

  • infinite scrolling?

i'm a bit torn on that one, though ^^

Author :  Sorunome

Author :  Aurélien Rodot

Just so you know, we are now on Trello so I won't be updated this list anymore, but still taking suggestions / bug reports into account !

  • Infinite scrolling is for later
  • Agreed on Alt + S to post
  • Yes to show a preview of the replied to post or link to it
  • Agreed on pixelated rendering, we'll add it everywhere anyway ;)

New update online !

@Sorunome : your tutorial aren't gone, they'll be back in the Academy real soon

Author :  Sorunome

while mobile support is way better, there is horizontal scrolling on the topic list

EDIT: seems like the site got updated since this comment and it is working awesome now! ^.^
