Getting issues...

Version Modeproduction (star)


This update fixes a couple of issues and introduces autosave for our texteditor (CkEditor).

Important highlights from this release

  • CKEditor improvements
    • Autosave for texteditor
      • content will be saved every 10s to your browser localStorage
      • content older than 24h will be deleted / ignored
      • content will be stored per board + topic or pm action.
        • that means you can technically store multiple posts, etc.
      • auto saved content will be cleared on submit for this particular content
    • A crash / error won't display the legacy texteditor now. Instead a warning box appears with information and you can manuelly trigger to launch the texteditor.
      • In most cases, the editor content will be copied to the legacy texteditor - but it sometimes can't do that if it crashed completely.
        Your content is then lost during the switch - but with the new autosave feature you could recover with a browser tab reload.
  • Small improvements here and there
  • Bugfixes
    • Fix issues with odd url encoding which broke hybridauth (social login) and probably other parts as well.
    • Fixed disallowed emotes check [hotfixed 03 Oct 2018]
    • Fixed rare case cases where the social login buttons were not displayed [hotfixed 03 Oct 2018]
    • Lots of reported sentry errors fixed. (thumbs up)
  • System
    • new (good looking) http error pages which you hopefully should never see (smile)

The focus is now on stability and maintenance for a while. We look into performance and try to get rid of the 5xx errors (issues have been identified).

The last update for this year will introduce a new feature and some improvements to the mobile / responsive view on the forum.

More time imto the UGX Launcher and UGXPLAY will be put and hopefully some new announcement about it will be made in the upcoming weeks.
