Bug in Mozilla 1.0

When I try to post a comment in Mozilla 1.0, the Preview screen shows "Comment Preview:" without the text box/buttons. This is only true in MeFi, not MeTa.

CSS being killed on Mac

More than a few threads have had the css broken by tags like this:

It completely kills the stylesheet in IE5 on mac. Anyone else notice this problem? Are these tags added by the person posting, or are they part of the server side processes? I've been irked by the digression to no left margin, default font mess the page becomes because of this.

Problem opening MeTa links in a new window in IE6.

IE6, running on Win98SE. I have "open links in a new window" selected in my profile customization, but they open in the same window anyway.

Spell check doesn't work properly on opera 6.0 for linux

Spell check doesn't work properly on opera 6.0 for linux. The checking works fine, but if you replace a word after the run is complete the entire comment text gets replaced by the last corrected word (owch).

I can't see a preview of my comments in Metatalk, and the login screen isn't showing.

I can't see a preview of my comments in Metatalk using N4.79, and the login screen isn't showing. It worked just fine before the MeFi server outage (*pouts*). It does work correctly in MeFi, tho.

I think I'll press the 'XML' button and see what happens

I think I'll press the 'XML' button and see what happens ... what does 'An invalid character was found in text content. Error processing resource 'http://xml.metafilter.com/rss.xml'. Line 14, Position 152' mean?

MeFi & MeTa thread pages 404 when logged in

IfI try to read any thread on MetaFilter or MetaTalk and I'm logged in, I get 404, yo. If I'm not logged in, I can read the threads. I've tried logging out and logging back in, and I deleted my MetaCookies.

Why is this happening to me?

Any idea why this is presently happening on the front page? Is this caused the post, MetaFilter, or my browser? (Moz 0.9.9/Win2k.)

Can't select text in posts

Has it always been like this? In IE 5.1 for mac I am unable to select text on the FP, but I can select text on the sidebar. In Opera I have no problems. I am thinking of downgrading from 5.1 I have had many problems with it.

Comment counts don't match comments

The comment counts for each thread listed in the Metafilter sidebar are all way off. I did a little digging, trying to see if maybe each count had gotten shifted the thread before or after it or something similar, but in the end I couldn't find any rhyme or reason to it.

Error occurred while processing request.

"Error occurred while processing request." In recent days I've gotten a lot of freezeups as I'm trying to save a post. I've just been taking it in stride because it's nothing new, but is happening more and more often recently. Ufez Jones just mentioned a similar problem, and there have been a few noticable doubleposts recently, which is a common mistake when this error occurs if one is not careful. I'm wondering how many others are noticing this too? I recommend keeping notepad handy, or just copy your post to the clipboard just before hitting preview or post. It saves having to recompose the message if it gets lost.

Every comment in every thread is new

I've been on metafilter all day, and every comment in every thread from March 2 9:29pm is marked as new. I logged in this morning at or about 12:52 PM, and it is 3:23 as I write these words.

Hit post then... nothing

I wrote my post, hit preview, and nothing showed up. So, stupidly, I hit post, resulting in the world's most terse front-page post.

Bad link formed, fixed

Hey there - A post I made about a WA state Bill has had its link text munged - was this deliberate, or a bug? The original text said 'WA Lawmakers try to remove "repugnant" Theory of Evolution from schools'. It now just reads 'WA Lawmakers try to remove'. Just a curious thing - maybe quote-related. Thanks.

No posting window?

Anyone else having this problem with Mefi? When I go to 'comments', there's no posting window available and my name doesn't appear. So, I logged in, figuring that would make a difference. No luck. Nothing's changed on my end. So sad when old friends no longer recognize you. :>(

tag fixing gone awry.

tag fixing gone awry. the culprit appears to be a colon inserted rather than a double quote mark in the html source for an href=url key-value pair, causing the tag fixer to become very confused and add an extra double-quote mark -- one for each of two a href tags -- at the end of the tags. you'll have to view source to see what the post was actually meant to be and where the problem is.

Why do I get redirected to an online store?

Everytime I go to Metafilter's main face, after a minute of reading I get redirected to a different online store. The last one was ThinkGeek. Three times this happend, and then my system froze. I'm using IE 5.1 and Windows 98. This isn't what normally happens, and I'm confused as to why.

Post order is by most recent comment instead of chronological

Has something changed about the way Metafilter displays. In the last couple of weeks all I see when I go to www.metafilter.com is posts which have had recent comments. From what I can tell the post with the most recent comment is at the top of the list.

Prior to this strangeness I used to see all posts in reverse chronological order going back in time, a week maybe? I've checked the Options page to no avail...

AOL, Netscape do not match IE

When I try to post something on AOL or Netscape (v. 6.0), why don't I get the settings on the post box that I do on MS Explorer? Like the Bold, Italics or link button? Also, Ctrl + Shft and T (for italics) or Ctrl + Shft + B (for bold) doesn't work either.

Problem with not getting to today's page

Description: wasn't brought to current day's weblog
1. typed in url
2- clicked on link
3- clicked back
4- brought to weblog for 2 days ago.

actually, this has happenned to me three times over the last three days. Very wierd. The only way around it is to keep refreshing the page. I hope this isn't happening to other people. Could it be because i deleted all my cookies recently?

My comment was swallowed whole on preview

This is probably the fault of my vintage programs but, for the past two days every time I've tried to preview a comment on the blue pages only, my comment was swallowed alive. Any advice?

Chronological view issues

I'm using IE5 on a Win 98 machine, and when I finish reading a thread and hit backspace to return to the front page, I'm plopped back in time to November 17, rather than the top of the thread (I view chronologically). I deleted all my Temporary Internet files, which I thought would fix it, but it's still happening. Ideas?

Back button does not show my new post

I noticed recently that now when I hit the back key after posting and get to the original thread screen, I don't see my new post there without reloading. In the past, it updated automatically, and "backing up" to it would find it already updated. Struck me as interesting, and I wonder if this was an intentional change or a byproduct of some other change?

[will be posted in metafilter >> feature requests]

In the preview view of the post I just made, it said "[will be posted in metafilter >> feature requests]." Shouldn't that say MetaTalk, not Metafilter?

X New Comments Disappears on MeTa

Unlike the behaviour at Metafilter itself, here on Metatalk, after I arrive at the new flat front page with the (x new) flags on threads, if I click into a thread to read the comments then hit the back button on my browser, I seem to be losing my (x new) flags.

Metatalk comment previews don't work in Mozilla.

New bug: metatalk comment previews don't work in Mozilla. I hit the preview button, and I get the "Comment Preview:" text, nothing, then links to the home pages. The page source says "error resolving parameter". (The previews work fine @ metafilter, and for metatalk *posting* like I'm doing now; and they all work OK in IE.)

Problem posting comments

Apologies in advance if this is a really dumb problem, but I can't post a comment to MeFi. Just when I'd finally got up the courage to join in!

I log in, type my comment & press [Preview] and it just takes me back to the login screen. I have tried logging out & in again, it didn't help. Does anyone have any ideas what I am doing wrong? Thanks in advance.

This is my first post here too - maybe this won't work either...

number of new comments lost after reading thread

Sometimes, after viewing a thread in MetaTalk, when I hit the back button, the other threads lose the number of new messages since my last visit information. It doesn't seem to happen all the time. (Mac IE5)

Windows configuration problem

I'm having a computer (Probably Windows) configuration problem and it's getting me down. Maybe some of you can help. Since this is my work computer and I mostly use it for cruising MetaFilter, I'd say it's a highly appropriate topic. (more inside)

Old active thread not showing up in recent comments view

A certain, apparently timeless, undying thread from 8/24/01 has comments as recent as 1 PM on 10/24 -- but it doesn't show up when I view MeFi by recent comments (though threads with less-recent most-recent comments are listed). What gives?

I totally did not click post twice.

Why is it, even if you click only once on "post" and then remove all digits from the keyboard until some error message appears, resist temptation to click again and in fact close MeFi just to avoid posting at all, you are still rewarded, minutes later with a double post?
Double posts imply frenetic clicking but this is just true...
