Not sure if this has been mentioned, but on Chrome on Android (several versions of either across several phones, Pixel 2 XL, Samsung G7, Redmi k30) inserting a smiley into a post completely breaks the inline editor.  You can't delete the smiley (it starts inserting chunks of code into the page every time you hit backspace) - you also can't put a newline in after it. It also seems to break the toolbar buttons, so you can't insert more than one.

This happens for me on both Firefox and Chrome on my phone about 9/10 times if I try to insert a user tag as well...which is why I just don't try any more.

I have no idea if I can fix that issue, but I'll investigate, and if I can't figure it out I'll try raising it with Invision.

It's been an issue I've personally had ever since the "new" system was introduced, along with the editor randomly deleting your whole post glitch.  Though I've only encountered this issue handling tags on mobile, the aforementioned text deletion issue has been observed on all platforms I have access to (Chrome & Firefox on two versions of Android, Linux and Windows 10).

Can confirm those bugs are still present

if it helps for diagnostic purposes I managed to actually catch it on video a while back

the only way I have been able to get the editor to stop deleting text when it does so

is by clicking off of the browser window to another window/app I have open, then clicking back to the browser where it will then highlight the text its been nuking, which I can then unhilight finally and will finally let me continue typing without it being deleted

Not had any errors yet but have noted that I've been seeing several periods of 30 seconds to a minute where the site goes unresponsive.  Guessing these two things are connected.

Edit: There we go - just had my first 502 error so they're definitely popping up.

Several 502 errors this afternoon whatever they mean. Couldn’t access the site for ten mins or so ( was trying to message @Mrs6C).

Two phones.

Samsung Galaxy A40. Android 10.

Google Pixel 4a Android 11.

Same version of chrome browser 94.0.4606.50. 

Samsung works brilliant. Google phone works like crap. Can't post, can't follow\unfollow, (spiny wheel of doom) can't even hit return to make a new line for a sentence when trying to post. New phone but I've cleared cache just incase. Any ideas?

Is anyone using the tapatalk app? I am having a weird issue where I can't see messages either sent or received but can send? They only work in a browser fully? 

I have opened a call with the tapatalk bods directly. 

 

Does anyone know what version of the plugin we are using here? It works on other sites just fine.

Can't help with Tapatalk, I did use it for a little while last year but I moved entirely to the AS mobile page which is rather good.

Please can we look into removing the ability for users to delete their own threads? It often deletes a lot of other peoples' content at the same time and is incredibly confusing and frustrating.  

I'd agree with this, but with still allowing the poster to contact the mods to request a delete.

It would prevent the spur of the moment flounces that result in good threads going in the bin because of some minor spat.

I'm regularly unable to upload images from Chrome Android and Chrome Desktop.

Doesn't seem to be consistent but has happened 5-10 times. File sizes are <2MB.

I'll add a file and it'll sit indefinitely in an 'uploading state'. 

This seems to come in pairs with the 'submit reply' button failing to complete as well

Sorry missed this one when it was originally posted. This is something that has been discussed previously. I’ll bring it up again.

That’s a strange one… is it just chrome or have you tried other browsers too?

Not tried other browsers but seems odd that it would only fail occasionally but on desktop and mobile. Ran into the same issue today but with submitting a reply.

I can reply to the same thread 15mins later with no issues and in the same tab.

5.2mins to fail to submit a comment and the failed reply service worker worked immediately.

I'm sure the answer is in this thread somewhere already but the search function isn't bringing up any results..

How do I embed a You Tube video on here? Firefox on a Windows 10 PC.

If you mean how do you link to a You Tube video, then this is the way I do it:

1. Go to the Youtube video.

2. Right click on the video view and choose the 'Copy video URL' or 'Copy video URL at current time' menu option as appropriate.

3. Paste the copied URL into the AS post.

Hope that helps!

      Having recently had some tussles with a dead BMW ECU, I thought this was really interesting:
      https://www.ifixit.com/News/52123/the-coming-battle-over-hacking-your-own-car
      Especially how the guy managed to update to a newer version of Ford Sync enabling CarPlay.
      I am tempted to really learn this side of 'shiteing' as well as mechanics.

      Hi all,
      Apologies for the downtime, there was some routing issues with our hosting provider which meant the server was cut off from the outside world. I'm finding out what went wrong and how we can avoid a repeat.

      A proper shite 90s jet ski just came up by me and I’m sorely tempted. Looks like a decent version of the year, a seadoo spi.
       
      Seems rotax powered which I remember from my karting days and I’m hoping to go and see it tomorrow. Looks like a two cylinder carb fed job.
       

       
      Anyone played with them?
       
      As usual the engines in bits and it’s missing the jet whatever that is. Presume where the prop fires water down?
       
      Are there any rules to it’s use or can I just get it running and blast about on it on the local water and lochs?

      So I’ve held off here for a month now but I’m stuck and need advice.
       
      Some of you might remember I had a Golf Turbo estate for sale in Jan. Well I sold it to Exiled_Tat_Gatherer and he paid for it with the intention of collection.
       
      But, I haven’t had a message off him in nearly 4 weeks now and I’ve messaged loads. I’ve phoned him and got voicemail. Now I’m not trying to muddy the lads credibility at all, he’s done his bit but I’m worried about not being able to get in touch.
       
      He’s in Belgium and intended to fly over and collect. I’m aware he bought numerous other cars off here and wanted to collect them all in a oner but he’s now not posted in ages.
       
      What the hell do I do? I really need the car shifting but he’s paid for it. I can’t store it forever and I’m still paying tax on it so it can be legal for him to collect.
       
      Really stuck. Any advice appreciated. I’m erring towards selling it on and refunding him if I can get hold of him but don’t want to be the arsehole.
       
      Sorry if this isn’t the way to do things but I’m really at a loss.
