Can't see 77 on zing
As of today, getting an error message whenever I try to post via zing

Means you're not logged in. Have you changed your password recently? Go into the account screen and hit save, see if it works then.

Keep using it for a whole after that, there's a bug in the live version that means it takes a few minutes to save the new password to disk. (or you can just reinstall from the App Store to fix)

stet, Saturday, 7 January 2012 23:09 (nine years ago) link

Instance should be ILX right?

blurgh (jjjusten), Saturday, 7 January 2012 23:17 (nine years ago) link

Yeah. Check you don't have a trailing slash on the server bit too.

stet, Saturday, 7 January 2012 23:19 (nine years ago) link

Test

blurgh (jjjusten), Saturday, 7 January 2012 23:20 (nine years ago) link

Ha bingo, it was the trailing slash on the server, thx man

Not compatible with iOS 7? Can't get it to launch.

More Than a Century With the Polaris Emblem (calstars), Friday, 21 June 2013 20:38 (eight years ago) link

Really? Is launching fine for me here on beta 1. Did you reinstall from store?

stet, Saturday, 22 June 2013 11:08 (eight years ago) link

I did but will try again

More Than a Century With the Polaris Emblem (calstars), Saturday, 22 June 2013 17:39 (eight years ago) link

Oh wait is this blue Zing? I haven't tested it, but it's built against iOS 3 so not surprised

stet, Saturday, 22 June 2013 17:48 (eight years ago) link

Reinstalled and works now (posting this from it)

Thanks Stet

i keep getting the error message about not being able to post, "possibly because of a login problem" or something like that? i've logged out and logged back in to zing, deleted the app and redownloaded it, and i still get the same message. i know my login obv because i'm posting here. what else should i try?

Which version of Zing? Red or blue?

stet, Sunday, 29 April 2018 16:53 (three years ago) link

Red

na (NA), Sunday, 29 April 2018 17:30 (three years ago) link

Oh it just worked. Either it fixed itself or it was an issue specifically trying to post a link to a tweet

na (NA), Sunday, 29 April 2018 17:31 (three years ago) link

Recent update made things break on iPhone SE :(
The preview text is spilling all over the titles and everything's just crammed together on top of everything else

Dan I., Saturday, 12 May 2018 02:24 (three years ago) link

Uh on the boards page that is. Not a big deal I guess!

Dan I., Saturday, 12 May 2018 02:25 (three years ago) link

Ah, actually it's like that for the bookmarks too, which is a much bigger deal :(

Dan I., Saturday, 12 May 2018 02:26 (three years ago) link

What version of iOS are you running? I dev and test on an SE w/ 11.3

stet, Saturday, 12 May 2018 09:16 (three years ago) link

Oh hold on, I see it on 5s running 10.3. Is there a reason you want to stay on 10? I'll see what I can do.

stet, Saturday, 12 May 2018 09:28 (three years ago) link

Ah I see, I didn't think of the ios version.

i figured out the solution for my problem upthread: if i delete the s=21 from the end of twitter links, they post fine. if i don't i still get the error message

na (NA), Tuesday, 29 May 2018 00:49 (three years ago) link

Where do you get those links from? The mobile site gives me plain ones.

stet, Tuesday, 29 May 2018 20:53 (three years ago) link

from the app

I dont seem to see ILM, and when i go to ILX Boards header to select faves, its not there (though quite a few are there twice?).

Hunt3r, Monday, 24 September 2018 14:32 (two years ago) link

yeah, that happened to me recently but with ile - i had to delete the app and reinstall to get it to come back

CRABCORE’S NOT DEAD (bizarro gazzara), Monday, 24 September 2018 15:03 (two years ago) link

if you swipe on a board to delete it then it can be very hard to get it back, sorry. delete + reinstall sorts

stet, Monday, 24 September 2018 15:49 (two years ago) link

Thx, will do.

I’m getting a corrupt-messages-in-this-thread message in Zing for the Romania thread. Browser is fine though.

breastcrawl, Monday, 6 May 2019 11:31 (two years ago) link

bookmarks weren’t loading in Zing so i logged out but now it doesn’t recognise my uname/pswd

Lil' Brexit (Tracer Hand), Sunday, 19 May 2019 16:53 (two years ago) link

ah n/m just used my old email address and it worked! still no bookmarks tho

Lil' Brexit (Tracer Hand), Sunday, 19 May 2019 18:38 (two years ago) link

i can't remember if i've asked this or not, but is there a way to change my login email address? i can change the email address in preferences, but that doesn't affect my login email

Lil' Brexit (Tracer Hand), Sunday, 19 May 2019 18:39 (two years ago) link

Not really, sorry!

beard papa, Thursday, 13 June 2019 04:12 (two years ago) link

Unrelated, but I’ve noticed in the latest version that if I click a URL in a post, when I use the “Back” at screen top left I always get a blank screen with a hazard triangle, and have to press back again.

an incoherent crustacean (MatthewK), Thursday, 13 June 2019 05:55 (two years ago) link

^yep, a very small inconvenience, but it’s been there since the latest update.

breastcrawl, Thursday, 13 June 2019 07:20 (two years ago) link

Yup

TS The Students vs. The Regents (James Redd and the Blecchs), Thursday, 13 June 2019 09:38 (two years ago) link

Got it - fixed in the next version.

Same thing in the Kelela - Cut 4 Me thread. Someone posted a Soundcloud link just now, but I seem to remember there being a problem with this thread before.

this isn’t a problem but would it be possible to specify which browser users can open if they want to launch links outside the app?

Can you add the newish board Je Déteste Tout to zing? It doesn't show up as in "show all boards" and its threads only appear on zing if I have them bookmarked.

L'assie (Euler), Tuesday, 24 September 2019 17:21 (one year ago) link

Ah sorry that’s a bug. Delete and reinstall it will show up

stet, Tuesday, 24 September 2019 18:54 (one year ago) link

ok thanks that works!

L'assie (Euler), Tuesday, 24 September 2019 19:05 (one year ago) link

stet, just fyi — something else funky in iOS 13: the “header” at top of forum view sometimes extends too far down, chopping off most of search bar:

#YABASIC (morrisp), Saturday, 28 September 2019 19:05 (one year ago) link

It looks like attempting to vote in a poll makes the app crash, fyi. Could just be my phone but that's the first time I've had the app turf out and it did each time I tried.

Welcome to the Sandwich Trough (Old Lunch), Saturday, 14 December 2019 02:51 (one year ago) link

Sometimes I type something and then highlight it (to apply italics or a link), and all the text disappears?

Inapt Authority (morrisp), Saturday, 14 December 2019 02:54 (one year ago) link

^ what Old Lunch said. This prevented Eric Clapton from getting any votes in that recent dumb guitar poll

calstars, Saturday, 14 December 2019 03:45 (one year ago) link

Can also confirm app crashes upon clicking a poll option. Thx!

Inapt Authority (morrisp), Saturday, 14 December 2019 22:21 (one year ago) link

Ditto on poll voting = app crashing

El Tomboto, Saturday, 21 December 2019 15:33 (one year ago) link

Fix is coming, sorry voters

stet, Saturday, 21 December 2019 16:40 (one year ago) link

no need to rush if it means people are prevented for voting from eric clapton in the meantime tbh

Yeah - the fix for that is with apple, will be in the 4.2 update as soon as they release it. Sorry!

Having a new issue: if I type until I reach the bottom of the window, it doesn’t “scroll,” and I can no longer see what I’m typing (the text disappears beneath the keyboard).

Other than not be so long-winded, any fix for this? Thx!

dad genes (morrisp), Sunday, 26 January 2020 21:52 (one year ago) link

Hate it when that happens, especially when I accidentally do the swipe & erase. Sometimes I can switch to landscape mode, although last time I tried that zing died.

TS: Kirk/Spock vs. Marat/Sade (James Redd and the Blecchs), Sunday, 26 January 2020 22:06 (one year ago) link

Yes, it works now! Sorry about that.

El Tomboto, Monday, 18 May 2020 03:24 (one year ago) link

speaking of images, long press on an inline image then “save to images” results in immediate crash

Li'l Brexit (Tracer Hand), Sunday, 31 May 2020 19:54 (one year ago) link

Ah, found it. It crashes because I haven't asked for permission to access your photo library. Better do that, then.

stet, Tuesday, 11 August 2020 14:35 (one year ago) link

I am not entirely on board with zing now intuiting how to format text between slashes or text between asterisks

sound of scampo talk to me (El Tomboto), Thursday, 20 August 2020 18:34 (one year ago) link

My opinion is that displaying format according to bbcode is fine but automatically converting non-bbcode “formatting” is trying too hard

sound of scampo talk to me (El Tomboto), Thursday, 20 August 2020 18:38 (one year ago) link

stet, the bookmarks are still a bit out of order... am i correct in thinking they should be ordered by date post was first created? I'm regularly getting a few shuffling in at the bottom from 2020. Not a problem by any means but wondering what that means in terms of the code.

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Thursday, 20 August 2020 18:41 (one year ago) link

example here... may have something to do with the phrase "2020" in the post?

YVW. Worth saying that you can also get quotes by hitting the "reply" arrow on an individual message, which also includes the message text. I don't think that was obvious to people.

I did this all the time already (and did just now) but the quote function is so useful for text pasted from elsewhere/further up!

Is there a known issue with Zing and bookmarking? I'm working my way through the Silicon Valley thread as I catch up on the show, and my slowly shifting bookmark works fine on a browser, returning to me chat about the episode I've just watched, but on Zing, it always takes me to the last 100 messages (starting Nov 4, 2019).

Alba, Monday, 2 August 2021 19:23 (one month ago) link

This has always been the Zing way. I have been living with it but you are right to complain.

Two Severins Clash (James Redd and the Blecchs), Monday, 2 August 2021 19:53 (one month ago) link

Yes, this is long-standing – I've made it work right on MacZing, but it hasn't made it to Tooch yet.

stet, Monday, 2 August 2021 20:36 (one month ago) link

Ah - thanks. Surprised I've not run into this before. I guess I don't make a habit of bookmarking months-old places in threads.
