Issues with new forum software

  • In Chrome, I see the bullets. v72.0.x

  • I'm seeing bullets now.

  • The old forum used to BOLD threads that had unread posts/replies and it also had a link to take you directly to the last unread post.  It's much harder to find unread posts without this functionality.

  • Sean - I don't think we're going to be able to stop Firefox autofilling any time soon. Recent versions are ignoring autocomplete="new-password" and autocomplete="off" standards that ask the browser not to autofill forms. We'll leave it in place in case it's a bug in recent builds - if they start acknowledging it again it should go away.

    Seems it's documented behaviour, interestingly Dave:

    ...many modern browsers do not support autocomplete="off" for login fields:

    • If a site sets autocomplete="off" for a `

      </em></em><form>`, and the form includes username and password input fields, then the browser will still offer to remember this login, and if the user agrees, the browser will autofill those fields the next time the user visits the page.</form>

    • If a site sets autocomplete="off" for username and password <input type="text" /> fields, then the browser will still offer to remember this login, and if the user agrees, the browser will autofill those fields the next time the user visits the page.

    This is the behavior in Firefox (since version 38), Google Chrome (since 34), and Internet Explorer (since version 11).

    The page does go on the then discuss autocomplete="new-password":

    If you are defining a user management page where a user can specify a new password for another person, and therefore you want to prevent autofilling of password fields, you can use autocomplete="new-password"; however, this is a hint for browsers so they are not required to respond to it.

    Underline for emphasis.

    Edit: Seems that underlining is no longer working. When pressing Ctrl+U. <span style="text-decoration: underline;">Example</span>. Edited the above (which is now underlined) to use BBCode.

    Excuse my typos and sometimes awful grammar. My fingers work faster than my brain does.

  • I had a feeling it was a browser issue. Interestingly FF does not ask to autofill, it just does. Strange behavior since it doesn't do that elsewhere.

    Thanks for the update Dave. And thanks for all the work you guys are doing to fix the bugs as they popup.

  • Yeah, it's also not lost on me that the best documentation on it comes from Mozilla themselves. Until very recently they supported autocomplete="new-password". Not sure why they stopped, but I think we might be on a losing streak trying to fight the behaviour the browser maker wants.
