Very very slick update stet, the attention to detail is impressive

Great job - justr a minor thing: any way to reinstate the "XX hours/days ago" time stamp beneath posts?

Yes, it’s going to be a setting in the next version

a niggle - occasionally when composing, dragging the cursor to the beginning of the post, or maybe just elsewhere in the compose window, erases all the text!

Wow, I’ve never seen that! Does a double tap with three fingers and pressing the undo arrow (on iOS 13) or shaking (on iOS 12) bring it back?
― stet, Wednesday, 11 December 2019 13:06 (one month ago) link
just tried and no. can be hard to replicate but try swiping with one finger fairly quickly pretty much anywhere in the compose window after entering some text.
― Li'l Brexit (Tracer Hand), Wednesday, 11 December 2019 13:13 (one month ago) link
Got it! It doesn’t erase the text for me but it does make the keyboard vanish. I’ll investigate

Sorry to report I’m running into some problems in the new version:During search the screen goes blank when entering the search term. Search results show up, but won’t link through when selected. It then gets stuck on the results screen for ages, with no apparent way out, making the app temporarily unusable.
Also, embedded tweets won’t link through to the source tweet on Twitter directly in many (most?) cases, unlike before.
I’m on iOS 12, as noted upthread.

What device are you using, breastcrawl? I'll take a look
I've also confirmed there's a bug with polls which means you can't vote for an option - fixing now

Hey Stet in night mode the text in the search box comes up black so it’s invisible. It worked fine, just had to type carefully.

Not sure it’ll make it out from Apple before Christmas, but a bug fix version has been sent to them. Fixes almost everything mentioned here - poll voting, twitter links, the search colour*, edited text vanishing, etc. (Can’t reproduce what you’re seeing breastcrawl but will keep looking!)* this is still broke after you have just changed colour, close and reopen app to fix.

thanks stet. fingers crossed...

+1 on the bug where a bunch of stuff gets erased when composing and the keyboard goes blank (grey) for a minute when doing selecting, cutting and pasting. Basically, when it comes back, I have an earlier version of the text I’d been working on. I don’t normally mention bugs but this one is pretty bad in that it prevents much in the way of editing longer posts. I’m on 13.3 and an XS in night mode.

Yeah, it was terrible, sorry: the version fixing it is waiting for review with Apple now

ime (13.3/iPhone8), threads that are polls do not show poll results when you select them through search
― willem, Friday, 17 January 2020 09:12 (yesterday) link
Yeah, that's right. Tricky to fix, that -- I'll see if I can come up with something.

Two things I’ve noticed: * Trying to vote in a poll results in immediate crash. 100% reproducible. * Links to other ILX thread now launch the web version in a browser, and requires login. I use an iPhone X (13.3)
― beard papa, Friday, 17 January 2020 22:07 (yesterday) link
yeah, they're both fixed now

Thanks, stet. My appraisal:All Twitter links do open again, yay! In most cases they don’t link through to the Twitter app itself, unlike before-before, but I’ll take it.Poll voting works again (voted cashew!).The search function is still fucked for me though, both in dark and light mode:-I can’t see what I’m writing-search results do show up, and can be sorted-but when I click on the result of my liking it doesn’t link me through-worst of all, I can’t leave the results page to go back or move on and do something else. The page is stuck there. All I can do is sit it out and try the app again at some later point, hoping that by then it has decided it’s time to refresh itself.(Apparently this is a problem only I have. Will have to continue to do my searching on Safari, I guess)

Je déteste tout, our very own French-language board, seems to be partly Zing-incompatible. Its main thread, 'Nous voilà enfin débarrassés de tous ces amateurs', apparently comes with 'some old or corrupted messages ... which Zing can't read'. Quite the indictment.

As I tried to edit my earlier post (which I wrote outside the app) within the app I experienced a brand new problem:I couldn’t scroll down/navigate in the text I had prepared to get to the bottom section that wasn’t immediately visible.Also, it seems you have to actively clear previous texts from memory or else it overrules the reply function. Is this just me again? (iPhone6/12.4.4)Now I want my old Zing back...

This is super-odd. I wonder if it’s an iOS 12 issue. Madchen has one of those, I’ll test on hers.
― stet, Saturday, 18 January 2020 13:09 (fifty-nine minutes ago) link
Yes, I see the scroll issue I think. The search is working though. Huh.
― stet, Saturday, 18 January 2020 13:10 (fifty-eight minutes ago) link
I'm too poor to be deemed worthy of iOS 13, so that may well be it.
― pomenitul, Saturday, 18 January 2020 13:11 (fifty-seven minutes ago) link
I am on iOS 13 and have the zing problem with 'Nous voilà enfin débarrassés de tous ces amateurs'
