    Known Bugs (and How to Deal With Some of Them)

    KNOWN BUGS

    I thought it might be a good idea to start this thread.

    Eventually we will expand it to include a glossary of all known bugs, whether general vBulletin bugs or bugs specific to our software or whatnot.

    Only bugs that we are unable to fix will be listed here. This is to let the users know that we are aware of these bugs and unfortunately there is nothing we can do about them. If you see a bug listed here and you do think there is a way to fix it, please let us know. Note that some bugs are either too interlaced with the copyrighted software to be fixable, while some others cannot be edited because of copyright issues (such free versions of traditionally paid add-ons).

    BUGS & WHAT YOU CAN DO

    1. I resized my quick reply box using the click+drag thing at the bottom of the thread and I am now unable to make it smaller again.
      Solution: Delete your cookies and data to fix this problem.
      .
    2. I keep getting logged out every 5 minutes or so.
      Solution: Check "Remember Me" when logging in.
      .
    3. I am using a dark theme, and everything seems to work, but then when I go a user's profile, my notifications, etc, some of the text becomes invisible.
      Solution: You may have set your theme using the chooser in the User CP. Set that setting back to Dawn, and instead use the theme chooser dropdown at the bottom of the website to change to a dark theme. You will have to reset this theme every time you log in, so we recommend using the Remember Me setting.

    I can't send PMs.

    I'm hoping that making a post will resolve the issue.

    Edit: It didn't.

    Also I suggest bug spray.

    lol scrub

    For the quoting, double-click it. Opens up the advanced reply, but better than nothing

    That bug should be fixed now. Might have to clear cache to see changes.

    Ctrl+Shift+R to refresh just Mafia Universe without cache. This I recommend. Settings -> Clear Browsing Data (and check just Cache, not history and others) for everything on your browser.

    Ah, that makes sense. It's using HTML instead of BBCode.

    Yes. As explained, it has to include multiple quotes and those characters. For example, this post will break because > is in it. but if I weren't quoting you it'd be fine

    Added bug #3 to the OP:

    3. I tried to quote someone but everything after the ">" character was cut off.
    Solution: Use a Full Reply editor instead of a Quick Reply. To quote in Full Reply, right click the quote button and open the link directly or in a new tab.

    For some reason, I cannot add my Co-Mods to a Private Topic. I have tried to do this many times and it isn't working. I think Virtuoso said it was a bug at some point. How do I remedy this?

    I was going to open a thread to report the issue I was having with the site, but I cannot do that. (Permission denied)

    Keyboard shortcuts are completely broken for me. I realized while reading a game that I could no longer use keyboard shortcuts, and scrolled down to the bottom to discover haphazard changes (i.e +Shifts where they don't belong). These changes were not made by me. Now, they not be changed properly (they keep the extraneous Shifts, if they respond at all), they cannot restored to their default value,and most of them plain do not work. Is there any way I or someone on staff can hard reset them?

    Do you see the keyboard shortcut legend below the thread? What about the "edit shortcut" button next to the offending shortcut?

    When whatever this is...is resolved.

    Can we trim this thread back to its intended purpose (site-wide/VBulletin, permanent unfixable bugs)

    And yes, I can see the KB shortcut legend, but:

    • The legend displays incorrectly upon loading every thread. It still displays the default shortcuts, but opening the "edit shortcut" dialog reveals the weird changed-but-not-by-me ones.
      • I can try (invariably unsuccessfully) to either Edit or Restore defaults, though, which will make the legend "correctly" display whatever the shortcut gremlins changed them to.

    • The "Edit Shortcut" and "Restore Default" functions simply do not work. Examples:
      • No matter what I try to set it to, "go down one post" will be J+Shift
      • No matter which single key I try to set "go to last post on page" and "go to first post on page" to, they will have extraneous +Shifts tacked on.
      • Restore Default, in all cases, does nothing.


    @Apoc: my sincerest apologies for derailing the thread, but if you read my post, I could not post my own thread in this forum earlier.
