Message 1965116 - Posted: 14 Nov 2018, 14:49:41 UTC - in response to Message 1965112.  

Gotcha. When I squeeze the width of this Chrome window, long lines wrap by taking whole words on to the next line. When I do the same on your profile page, lines wrap letter by letter. That counts as a reportable bug.

Hi Richard,

Just out of curiosity, I went to his profile page and in Firefox v63.0.1 I see word wrap and not letter wrap. Could it be a thing with Chrome?

Have a great day! :)

I just looked at his profile with Chromium 70.0.3538.77 and it word wraps when the window is squeezed. Just tried with Firefox 63.0 Again only word wrap so the fix is working on his profile in both my browsers.

And it's doing the same for me, now (same browser, I haven't shut it down). Maybe they fixed it already, but I'd be surprised - I only notified it at 14:15 UTC, and that's early for the upper left side. No reply, so the mystery remains.

Thanks for having reported / updated the Github profile layout problem report, Richard.

I'm using Firefox 63.0.1 and in spite of zooming in/out the profile, and in spite of resaving my profile page after making sure all words are concatenated properly & emptying the cache & reloading the profile page, the problems (1, 2, 3...) persist.

OK, now I am seeing it in the profile. It only occurs on the entries after "Useful Links" Only entries below that point in the profile are letter wrapping. No problems above that section in the profile. All sentences word wrap above that point.

So I would say there is either a limit to the profile buffer size above a point that loses word wrapping, or there is a major shift in formatting past that point that exposes the issue still.

Message 1965170 - Posted: 14 Nov 2018, 19:44:40 UTC

That explains it for me, too. When I first checked it out, I picked out the reference to 'spacecrafts' and searched directly down to that level. That's in the "Useful Links" area, so it letter-wraps When I re-checked two hours later, after Siran's comment, I only looked at the top part of the profile, and it word-wrapped. So both reports were - and still are - true.

Now to go and look-see what formatting code he used to set the indent.

And I see:
<ul style="word-break:break-all;"><br />
That seems - relevant.

Message 1965182 - Posted: 14 Nov 2018, 20:29:15 UTC

And that is exactly what DA's commit 730d1c~ changed. From word break break-all to word-break break-word. I know he said he recomposited the profile after the change, but maybe he still had that part of the profile hanging around in buffer. I would suggest clearing history and browsing data and once again revisiting that profile and trying another edit/paste to see if the change formats it differently that time.

The question is - would a <ul> html tag in the middle of a profile have been introduced via the new website css styles, or as part of the (I'm presuming) offline composition of the profile by the user.

Pierre, can you recall when you last updated your profile, and whether you still have an offline copy of the most recent changes?

The problem only occurs between the "list" and "/list" BBCodes as the removal of this BBCode fixes the problem. I never make offline compositions of my profile, I only make direct compositions using the new website CSS styles. And sorry, I don't remember or keep offline copies or time-stamped records of previous/recent changes, except I recently did save copies of the source codes with and without the problematic BBCode (if that can be useful):

Debug Profile Source Nov. 14, 2018 22:37 UCT HTML https://pastebin.com/7xJFr6Vt
(No "list" and "/list" BCodes, and no word-breaking problem between and outside them)

Debug Profile Source Nov. 14, 2018 21:59 UCT HTML https://pastebin.com/anw6WHnC
(with the "list" and "/list" BCodes, with the word-breaking problem between them - but not outside them)

And that is exactly what DA's commit 730d1c~ changed. From word break break-all to word-break break-word. I know he said he recomposited the profile after the change, but maybe he still had that part of the profile hanging around in buffer. I would suggest clearing history and browsing data and once again revisiting that profile and trying another edit/paste to see if the change formats it differently that time.
History and browsing data were both cleared without change to the word-breaking problem between the "list" and "/list" BBCodes

Well done. Try it again now - David has made a change in, precisely, the BBcode handler for [list] tags.

That was my observation too - always nice to link up cause and effect.

So, are there any more, or shall I approve the overall change for deployment across the BOINC campus?

Utterly, totally fixed =:) Thanks to you, Richard, Keith and DA for the hard investigative work...

Now, a BBCode problem I saw a few months ago, with the italics tag Test (see the top of my profile; in Firefox the word "Test" has been removed by the aforementioned tag.

This problem is present both on the profiles and the forum:

Hi Pierre,

One thing I have found is that some of those tags don't work inside of the code display. The one I tried was the strike through tag.

Just food for thought. I don't think it's a problem with the tags. :)

Have a great day! :)

That was the question I posed on Github. How many other seldom used BBCode or formatting tags are hiding and awaiting for someone to stumble upon the new code fix breaking them.

One long term annoyance that can be fixed easily... Especially so for 'touch' devices...

Note that there is zero spacing between the "Next" and "Post to thread" areas at the bottom of a thread... It is far too easy to inadvertently hit "Post" rather than the intended next/last page for a long thread...


Please?!

Insert some spacing before the Post button?!



Thanks,
Martin

The "code" display is there to show code without it being activated so that others can actually see what's going on, it is not a fault. ;-)
