Old threads link usernames to posts, not users

Bug: old threads have the poster username linking to the thread with the same number as their usernumber. Example (working). Example (nonworking). Only in the post; the username links in comments are fine.

Broken RSS on MeFi

The MetaFilter front page RSS feed seems to have become deformed. It has something to do with "Soup & Old Clothes?"

Metafilter login doesn't work for me on Firefox.

Metafilter login doesn't work for me on Firefox. Just sends me back to the homepage without logging me in. It does work on IE. Metatalk and Ask Metafilter seem fine on both browsers. I've deleted all cookies, etc, and still no luck. Can anyone suggest a solution other than "use IE" or "don't post to Metafilter"?

Win/Firefox Error?

I recently had to switch (temporarily) from OSX/Safari-FireFox to Windows 2000/FireFox. Since then, every time I post a thread on the Front Page, I get an error message. Funnily enough, I then open another tab and see that the thread went to the Front Page anyway. But I get the error message every single time I post. See inside for text of error message.

Unless you're logged in, the site doesn't load. AskMefi loads though. Mefi and Meta get "connection failure" text on a white screen.

Firefox Bug

IE6 - opens new links in new window [as it's s'posed to];

Firefox 0.9.1 - doesn't.

I take it that's a FF bug, not a Mefi one?

Some problems with Atom feed

Atom feed. I've been trying to cobble some code together that'll do interesting things with the atom feed here but most times it comes up as mangled (Firefox says the same too). Any one else having problems? Any chance of it being fixed?

Preview bug

When previewing a comment to a MeTa thread, the links to separate comments behind the time is broken, it links to http://metatalk.metafilter.com/contribute/metadetail.cfm?link_ID=xxxx#yyyyyy (which doesn't exist) instead of http://metatalk.metafilter.com/mefi/xxxx#yyyyyy.

AskMe Bug

I know AskMeFi's a work in progress, but just a mention of a bug in case it hadn't been noticed yet: Using or
tags in AskMeFi breaks the layout in preview (I didn't post so I don't know if they'd get stripped or fixed in the actual post).

Bug in Opera

The "my comments" "most recent comments" etc. box does not show up when this site is viewed with the opera browser. Or does it, and I just don't have mine set right? I struggled with it for a while, thinking I hadn't actually logged in. However, I was logged in. I could post comments. I accepted all cookies.

Cold Fusion error (March 2004)

strange: I just went to metafilter.com and got the following error:

I then went to ask.metafilter.com and got no error
I then logged in at ask.metafilter.com and now the blue works fine

Firefox Bugs

I've switched to Firefox. I have my MeFi preferences set to open links in a new window. I have the Tabbrowser Preferences extension installed on firefox and everything set to open in new tabs, links on metafilter still bring up new windows. While I can just CTRL + click to open in a new tab, I'm wondering if this is a mozilla thing, or a mefi thing. Thanks.

Anyone else getting their new link/comment counter reset to zero on the first (main page) reload? Since yesterday or so, any time I click through to a thread and then go back to the front, every thread is reporting all comments as read. Seems to be happening on the grey and green too.

Weird Character Entity Behavior

If you include a character entity in text for preview then it is displayed correctly and appears (as the appropriate character) in the edit area. However, when you click post, the character is converted to "?" (ie. posting character entities is OK, but if they're previewed then they're converted to the equivalent extended character, which is not accepted by "post").

Logging in to ask sends one to metatalk

Logging in via the ask.metafilter.com login link sends one to metatalk.metafilter.com. Just something to think about when Ask is pruned from MeTa.
