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.

+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

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 (five months ago) link
yeah, they're both fixed now
― stet, Friday, 17 January 2020 23:40 (five months ago) link
... in the new version which is rolling out 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.
― pomenitul, Saturday, 18 January 2020 12:42 (five months ago) link
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 (five months ago) link
Yes, I see the scroll issue I think. The search is working though. Huh.
― stet, Saturday, 18 January 2020 13:10 (five months 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 (five months ago) link
I am on iOS 13 and have the zing problem with 'Nous voilà enfin débarrassés de tous ces amateurs'
― juntos pedemos (Euler), Saturday, 18 January 2020 13:55 (five months ago) link
Having the scroll issue too, I’m on iOS 13.3.

Yeesh, found that and fixed it. New version going live now. Sorry!

some questions since I'm playing around with development tools to pick up a few things and decided to make a rudimentary ilx client as a test:
1. is the 'api' that Zing uses the only api available? it seems like the login is the ootb login page and then you get the cookies for the rest of the requests2. the rest of the calls are just xml versions of threads/posts. is that right?3. all auth is via cookies?
my initial idea was to recreate the backend and gui in one app but to speed things up (since I'm learning all the frontend stuff on the fly) I was going to wrap all the existing API calls in a modern rest api returning json but... hrrm
― babu frik fan account (mh), Tuesday, 28 January 2020 02:19 (five months ago) link
I can return JSON if that’s what you prefer but yeah it’s the auth etc that will cause all the grief. What platform are you building for?
― stet, Tuesday, 28 January 2020 09:59 (five months ago) link
nbd really! just curiousIf that sounds about right, I’ll see how long my attention span lasts in experimenting. I was messing around in Flutter/Dart and was going to do a quick c# backend (something I have existing experience in) to get things rolling faster.
― babu frik fan account (mh), Tuesday, 28 January 2020 13:49 (five months ago) link
hey is there like a bug submission type thing if we find a thread that gives a "Problem reading messages" error saying that Zing can't read old/corrupted messages? it's this one btw: Maurice Fulton...best tunes by him

You can start a thread on Mod Request, but I'll sort this one, thanks
― stet, Wednesday, 10 June 2020 21:25 (one month ago) link
Should be sorted now. Also, mh: now have a non-cookie-based version of the auth API, if you're still playing about
― stet, Wednesday, 10 June 2020 21:27 (one month ago) link
my home coding is all work-related now but that’s cool news!
