Is that the only thread you can’t bookmark?

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

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

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

Awesome! Have you looked at the rotate bug?

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

thx, man!

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

All hail the Stet

Excellent update.

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

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

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

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

stet, Thursday, 18 April 2019 12:19 (seven 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.

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

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

same here

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

Back now. Thanks?!

DJI, Sunday, 19 May 2019 21:16 (six 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.

Naive Teen Idol, Sunday, 9 June 2019 14:00 (five months ago) link

that's a really good idea, yep

stet, Monday, 10 June 2019 10:46 (five months ago) link

Where is that little Zing link again?

TS The Students vs. The Regents (James Redd and the Blecchs), Monday, 10 June 2019 17:23 (five months ago) link

It appears when Apple decides it should, which is a bit opaque

stet, Monday, 10 June 2019 18:35 (five months ago) link

Oh right. Can see it in safari but not in chrome

SEARCH.

It's rolling out now. It's not quite perfect, but it works: find threads, find posts, from the entire archive. Works if you have multiple sites added too.

It's surprising what a difference it makes — feels like an app full of 20 years of stuff now, rather than one that's just about bookmarks.

I said almost exactly ten years ago that I wanted to add it, and then y'know, things got busy, there was stuff to do, whatever, sorry. (Also: it was really surprisingly hard)

The big thing missing is sorting, I'll get on that for 2029.

stet, Thursday, 28 November 2019 01:49 (one week ago) link

(Zing is ten years old? Bloody hell)

Happy Birthday Zing!

Thanks Stet!

Had to raise the bar, eh? Couldn't leave well enough alone?

lukas, Thursday, 28 November 2019 03:08 (one week ago) link

Awesome!

DJI, Thursday, 28 November 2019 03:50 (one week ago) link

SEARCHHHH! Thanks Stet!

Le Bateau Ivre, Thursday, 28 November 2019 08:42 (one week ago) link

wow stet, this is what’s been missing from my life! merci beaucoup.

one weird thing: in dark mode you don’t get to see what you’re typing in the search box, the results still show up tho.

breastcrawl, Thursday, 28 November 2019 11:04 (one week ago) link

Ah, are you on iOS 11? It works on iOS 13 but I can’t figure out how to make it work on the older phones.

stet, Thursday, 28 November 2019 11:18 (one week ago) link

iOS 12 here, yes

Ned Raggett, Thursday, 28 November 2019 15:07 (one week ago) link
