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.


thank you for adding these features!

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

same here

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

Back now. Thanks?!

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 (six months ago) link

that's a really good idea, yep

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

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

stet, Monday, 10 June 2019 18:35 (six 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 (two weeks ago) link

(Zing is ten years old? Bloody hell)

Thanks Stet!

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

Awesome!

Yes indeed it does. Thanks for all the hard work!!

wow! thank you Stet

SEARCHHHH! Thanks Stet!

Le Bateau Ivre, Thursday, 28 November 2019 08:42 (two weeks 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 (two weeks 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 (two weeks ago) link

iOS 12 here, yes

breastcrawl, Thursday, 28 November 2019 11:45 (two weeks ago) link

lol sry. I can send you the API specs? :)

So great. Thanks sir!

Ned Raggett, Thursday, 28 November 2019 15:07 (two weeks ago) link

i think bookmarking threads is faster now too. thank u STET

oh my god

Li'l Brexit (Tracer Hand), Thursday, 28 November 2019 15:31 (two weeks ago) link

feels like a nice bit of fit and finish now too

Li'l Brexit (Tracer Hand), Thursday, 28 November 2019 15:36 (two weeks ago) link

This new search feature is aces, have used it several times in the past few hours.

stet i love you

terminators of endearment (VegemiteGrrl), Friday, 29 November 2019 00:14 (two weeks ago) link

Fucking hell. Well done, thanks a million. You could have made this a paying update. Would have gladly forked out

licorice oratorio (baaderonixx), Friday, 29 November 2019 09:53 (two weeks ago) link

Challops:

I don’t like how the lines have disappeared between threads in dark mode. Bring back the lines or at least alternate background colors like answers do (in both modes).

I don’t understand the HUGE type announcing the board / thread title (or the app) at the top of each screen? It doesn’t need to be so big. Also, when I hit filter threads, the field floats behind the huge type and it’s annoying.

El Tomboto, Friday, 29 November 2019 16:17 (two weeks ago) link

challops accepted. Some of this is work in progress -- filter threads will be replaced by thread search soon, and the huge type problem is an iOS 13 change that's half-finished (because I realised we have to keep iOS 12 support for the older phones).

Lines on threads is a good shout, I'll try and put those back. Confess I just got tired of slogging at Search code and felt it was good enough to get out.

stet, Friday, 29 November 2019 16:59 (two weeks ago) link

Couple more challops:

1. The orientation bug where Zing jumps back a bunch of posts if you rotate it back and forth is still there.
2. Some kind of memory leaks with YouTube and maybe Twitter. If you start a YouTube video and then click back, the video never gets shut down entirely and you continue to hear audio until you kill the app. Maybe embeds aren’t being killed correctly?

DJI, Friday, 29 November 2019 17:36 (two weeks ago) link

YESSSSSSSSSSS

stet, you are the best. Seriously.

Naive Teen Idol, Friday, 29 November 2019 23:31 (two weeks ago) link

cosign with DJI - also if you tap a Twitter post on e.g. the image, any linked video won't link correctly, but if you tap on the date of the post, it loads correctly and you can tap through to the video or images linked.
A small thing too - when shifting day-to-night and vice versa using standard type appearance, the big headlines stay in the colour of the old mode (i.e. they stay white, on a light background, or black on a dark background). If it was possible for Zing to switch to night mode when the phone does so, that would be awesome, but maybe break things for folks not on iOS 13.
Offered only in the spirit of wanting to help, not complaint - it's a great app!

As others have said, I'd have been happy to pay for this upgrade.
