yo stet i have noticed lately that when clicking the safari logo in a post launches the WHOLE THREAD in safari, when iirc it used to load the permalink of the post you were coming from?

Thought you couldn't really launch Safari from other apps these days. Although maybe it prompts you and asks Do You Really Want To Open Safari?, I never tried in Zing Tooches.

I launch Safari from other apps all the time!

I haven't changed anything my end; I wonder if Safari has changed. You do have to be logged in on ILX in Safari before it'll work, though -- the auto-login strips the message. And it only works with pint Zing; Zing Lite just opens the thread.

stet, Monday, 12 September 2011 17:10 (twelve years ago) link

hmmm maybe I just wasn't logged in, cause I'm on pint zing

<3 pint zing

lxy, Monday, 12 September 2011 17:27 (twelve years ago) link

Wait, what? What is pint zing? I have Zing Touch.

it was as good of a time as any to show a lighter side of 9/11 research (Je55e), Monday, 12 September 2011 17:28 (twelve years ago) link

Had the same question. Is it like a left-handed smokeshifter?

Agent Double O POLL (James Redd and the Blecchs), Monday, 12 September 2011 17:30 (twelve years ago) link

Pint zing is red, and I buy a pint (or a Crunchie) when a copy gets sold. I also add you to my list of heroes. Lite Zing is blue and free.

stet, Monday, 12 September 2011 17:45 (twelve years ago) link

Oh. In that case, I am a proud and pleased owner of Zing Pint, but I did not know it was called that.

hmmm ok i just tried again-- def login in to ILX on safari, and it just took me to the whole thread, not the permalink i was coming from. seems really intermittent, cant figure out why its working in some instances and not in others.

not really a big deal, just figured it was something you'd want to know that was happening.

 (gr8080), Monday, 12 September 2011 21:55 (twelve years ago) link

Weird. I'll take a look and see if I can see what's up

stet, Monday, 12 September 2011 21:56 (twelve years ago) link

def noticed it occurring in only the last 2 weeks or so

 (gr8080), Monday, 12 September 2011 21:59 (twelve years ago) link

It is happening to me, too.

one month passes...

Something weird is happening. Zing Touch won't allow me to read the gay thread. It just won't open - the little spinning wheel stops, but on the bottom it gets stuck on "Loading" but no messages load. All other threads open fine, and the error happens under all circumstances I've tested: 3G, wifi, many and few unread messages.

I'm updating to iOS5 now, so maybe that will take care of the problem.

Je55e, Friday, 14 October 2011 02:03 (twelve years ago) link

that happened to me w/ my original anime convention thread

⚓ (gr8080), Friday, 14 October 2011 02:06 (twelve years ago) link

Yeah, it had a weird character iirc. Zing is delicate.

Autumn Almanac (Schlafsack), Friday, 14 October 2011 02:07 (twelve years ago) link

The GOP presidential candidates thread has been doing that for me as well on Zing. Odd.

Ned Raggett, Friday, 14 October 2011 02:09 (twelve years ago) link

I really think you should stop reading the GOP presidential candidates thread then.

And Je%%se, you're not gay anymore.

Jeff, Friday, 14 October 2011 02:42 (twelve years ago) link

yeah I've had that same issue with the GOP candidate thread and i think the "david foster wallace: classic or dud" thread as well.

Clay, Friday, 14 October 2011 03:54 (twelve years ago) link

Disco Inferno lyrics thread for me.

Sick Mouthy (Scik Mouthy), Friday, 14 October 2011 05:57 (twelve years ago) link

Are you opening these threads from bookmarks or a board?

Couple of minor iOS 5 issues, fix in works now btw

stet, Friday, 14 October 2011 08:09 (twelve years ago) link

GOP Thread and the Bacon thread won't load for me.

I usually think of Zing being my guardian angel in both of these cases.

Pleasant Plains, Friday, 14 October 2011 14:34 (twelve years ago) link

I just tried the gay thread from both the board and the bookmark and it didn't work either way.

I am still on iOS4, btw. Ran into a snag last night and put it off.

Je55e, Friday, 14 October 2011 14:50 (twelve years ago) link

can you paste the permalink to your bookmarked post in here please je55e?

Throw on Your Best Cardigan and Celebrate Fall 2011 with the Gays of ILX

Here you go.

By the way, I thought at one time there was a thread that had the same sort of function as this one, but for ILX, not just Zing. It was a sort of wish list/discussion/place to report problems. I can't find it now. Was there ever such a thing?

I've been wanting to say there that it would be awesome if regular ILX was more like Zing Touch in some ways, including the formatting buttons and....I forget. There are other things. Oh! Yes, the quote button!

Je55e, Friday, 14 October 2011 16:57 (twelve years ago) link

(maybe i already said those things in this thread?)

Ideas for ILX

Perhaps that was it. But since the recent outage, I feel bad asking for new features.

Je55e, Monday, 24 October 2011 15:41 (twelve years ago) link

I don't. I want everything.

Jeff, Monday, 24 October 2011 15:43 (twelve years ago) link

two months pass...

what is the instance supposed to be on zing? i have tried everything i can think of and i still can't get it to work :(

La Lechera, Monday, 2 January 2012 03:54 (twelve years ago) link

"ILX" cap-sensitive

Clay, Monday, 2 January 2012 03:57 (twelve years ago) link

For some reason, i've been able to post to either the sandbox or normal ILX. i get this error:

"could not post message for unknown reasons. (Sorry, btw)"

anyone else get this?

it's not true!

"ILX" cap-sensitive
i tried this, but it gave me this

"Connected to the server but then...boom. Is the "instance" right?"

What am I doing wrong here?

La Lechera, Monday, 2 January 2012 04:31 (twelve years ago) link

Did you change server to http://www.ilxor.com ?

Clay, Monday, 2 January 2012 04:33 (twelve years ago) link

server http://beta.ilxor.com
instance ILX
check your username and password obv

caek, Monday, 2 January 2012 04:33 (twelve years ago) link

got it! i didn't realize we were still on the beta.ilxor server, so i changed it back to the old one
fixed

La Lechera, Monday, 2 January 2012 04:38 (twelve years ago) link

i'm still having the problem i mentioned a few posts up (i can read posts, but i can't make my own, and my bookmarks don't work). the instance is set at ILX, the username and pw are the same as always, and i've tried both http://beta.ilxor.com and http://www.ilxor.com as the servers.

not sure if this helps, but i never had the problem until we switched to the sandbox and i adjusted my zing settings accordingly.

anyone have any ideas?

Kill your zing instance and restart?

TEH PNINFOX aka the veen driver (James Redd and the Blecchs), Wednesday, 11 January 2012 16:44 (twelve years ago) link

Or just delete Zing and reinstall. Are you sure you don't have a trailing slash on the server? (eg com/ instead of com)

stet, Wednesday, 11 January 2012 16:45 (twelve years ago) link

I think you're screwed. Start posting by USPS now.

Jeff, Wednesday, 11 January 2012 16:46 (twelve years ago) link

ah, that was it! thanks, stet.

too bad i already started 5 new threads via USPS. the ILX HQ should receive the handwritten new content by COB Friday.
