bookmarks in zing show a preview of the latest post in the thread underneath the thread title, takes up a lot of room and often contains spoilers.

ahhh. i dont use bookmarks.

i mostly just rely on the dots! So on mobile ILX is kinda hard to navigate at all haha.

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Friday, 5 October 2018 00:41 (nine months ago) link

Having SNA show up before / above bookmarks would be a massive improvement to this user’s experience

Not sure why but the “help me learn Japanese” thread will not load any answers at all on iOS 12. Everything else fine apart from the occasional lockup.

my minor complaint is embedded twitter vids won’t play but I’ve found workarounds so it’s v v low priority

Clay, Saturday, 6 October 2018 18:38 (nine months ago) link

haha yeah at this point i think of that not as a bug but as just a particularity, a lovable quirk

two months pass...

Why doesn’t ILX on iphone/safari warn you that other people have posted when you hit submit post?

🦆🥣 (FlopsyDuck), Friday, 4 January 2019 21:37 (six months ago) link

I think that was put in because the OG Safari on Edge was so slow that you could get caught in xpost warnings forever on slow threads. Could probably take that out now.

New Zing version rolling out now: adds a preference for those snippets. Sorry it took so long!

three months pass...

no idea why, but the recently revived Prodigy thread refused to open for me on zing...

lefal junglist platton (wtev), Saturday, 13 April 2019 16:05 (three months ago) link

Same here

licorice oratorio (baaderonixx), Saturday, 13 April 2019 16:12 (three months ago) link

There’s some old-ILX HTML in there somewhere that’s giving Zing pause

stet, Saturday, 13 April 2019 17:58 (three months ago) link

Old like flint... Thanks for checking stet.

Bookmarking the Filmforum thread on De Subjectivisten crashes the app.

willem, Monday, 15 April 2019 11:53 (three months ago) link

Hmm works for me!

stet, Monday, 15 April 2019 13:04 (three months ago) link

Hmm. I'm on an iPhone SE/12.2.
Maybe removing and re-bookmarking will work..

willem, Monday, 15 April 2019 13:22 (three months ago) link

It didn't :/

willem, Monday, 15 April 2019 14:48 (three months ago) link

Is that the only thread you can’t bookmark?

stet, Monday, 15 April 2019 14:54 (three months ago) link

Yes. Out of 30-40 bookmarked threads that's the only one.

willem, Monday, 15 April 2019 16:12 (three months ago) link

btw thx for fixing that thing where the menu text was all jumbled

lag∞n, Tuesday, 16 April 2019 17:07 (three months ago) link

Just weighing in to say I'm on iPhone 5S/12.2 and filmforum bookmarks just fine here.

Uptown VONC (Le Bateau Ivre), Tuesday, 16 April 2019 17:13 (three months ago) link

New version rolling out now, mainly small changes:
- There's a dark mode toggle in the homescreen
- You can now swipe a bookmark left to set it to the latest message, and right to delete it
- You can now share a post as a link, or open it in your browser (tap a message and hit the share button)
- The single message page now follows the font size set in settings, and looks a bit less 2007.
- Zing copes better if messages have corrupt or bad HTML in them, and lets you open the thread in Safari instead of crashing.
- The keyboard's now quite dark in dark mode

stet, Wednesday, 17 April 2019 21:56 (three months ago) link

Awesome! Have you looked at the rotate bug?

DJI, Wednesday, 17 April 2019 22:15 (three months ago) link

Yes, but haven't fixed it — it doesn't seem to be totally my fault, the tableview is doing something I can't quite explain but I might be able to work around it.

stet, Wednesday, 17 April 2019 22:17 (three months ago) link

thx, man!

DJI, Wednesday, 17 April 2019 22:23 (three months ago) link

as always, many thanks. it’s a great app anyway and those additions all seem really useful.

Fizzles, Wednesday, 17 April 2019 22:40 (three months ago) link

All hail the Stet

calstars, Wednesday, 17 April 2019 23:35 (three months ago) link

Excellent update.

Ned Raggett, Thursday, 18 April 2019 03:19 (three months ago) link

This is so good, first time using it and it’s great! Thanks stet!

gyac, Thursday, 18 April 2019 05:42 (three months ago) link

you left off the “post anyway” feature when xposting, stet, which i was pleased to see tho muscle memory meant i clicked out and posted again anyway obv.

Fizzles, Thursday, 18 April 2019 12:00 (three months ago) link

Rats, so I did, and that was the hardest bit to do

stet, Thursday, 18 April 2019 12:19 (three months ago) link

- You can now share a post as a link, or open it in your browser (tap a message and hit the share button)
- The single message page now follows the font size set in settings, and looks a bit less 2007.

thank you for adding these features!

beard papa, Thursday, 18 April 2019 15:07 (three months ago) link

Bookmarks have disappeared from Zing for me but I still see them on the web.

DJI, Sunday, 19 May 2019 17:54 (two months ago) link

same here

Lil' Brexit (Tracer Hand), Sunday, 19 May 2019 18:37 (two months ago) link

Back now. Thanks?!

DJI, Sunday, 19 May 2019 21:16 (two months ago) link

three weeks pass...

stet, I saw that you added a few versions back a little Zing link at the top of mobile versions. But it just goes to the main page. Is there any chance you could have the app open web links to the actual thread? This would be a great way of effectively adding a search function.
