I've got some time out aside for working on HeroMachine site and forum issues -- not issues with HeroMachine itself. Please use the comments below to list any bugs you've encountered.
PS: This is not for feature requests. I already have a list of those to work on -- this thread is specifically for "stuff that isn't working properly."
It won’t let me name files not all the time but it does.
Bug # 1:
When I enter someones topic/thread by clicking on the “freshness” date, I normally land on the last post in it. But not if the thread has more than 70 pages (like ams’, vampyrist’s, and JR`s) – then I’ll land on page 1, post 1 …
When I tried to upload an image with 578 kb, I got an error message stating “File is empty. Please upload something more substantial. This error could also be caused by uploads being disabled in your php.ini or by post_max_size being defined as smaller than upload_max_filesize in php.ini.” Alas, in the upload section it says “Maximum file size allowed is 3000 KB.” Also I seem to be unable to delete either an attachment or a post I submitted to my own thread (which I was able to do in the old forums) …
(major) Bug # 3:
When I tried to start a new topic with 4 pictures with 525-578 kb each, bug #3 happened, but at least the text and the topic itself showed up in the Art Gallery subforum. Thus I wanted to edit my initial post and include the images via external links from my own webspace, which seemed to work fine in the preview (visual). But when I saved the post, I saw a completely blank page. So now I tried to go back to the topic by looking again for it in the Art Gallery subforum, but it had vanished. Weird thing is, when I went back to the general forums, the topic was listed as “newest post” – but when I clicked it, the topic was empty. I although was also able to submit a new post to it there, it still didn’t show up in the subforum. A few minutes later it was gone completely, after someone elses topic was updated with a new post/reply. After several (very annoying) abortive attempts, I eventually learned that apparently I can only post one outside-linked image in one post at once, because the second I tried to post 4 images in it, the post in question disappeared. And the possible reason why my topic always disappeared was that the vanishing post was the irst one in the topic (no content in the first post = no topic?). Well, the long and the short of it was that I finally managed to start the new topic by chopping up the post into several smaller pieces. But I really doubt that this is to the intention of the inventor…
I had the same bug as Mad Jack’s #2 (just now in fact, and once before). This time it was a PNG file that was 515 KB, and yet when I re-saved it as a JPEG (213 KB) it uploaded without a problem.
The hexadecimal thing in the Custom Colors section stopped working. I can’t input anything. It won’t work in Chrome or Firefox on a PC, a Mac, or in IE on my tablet. The RGB thing works though (knock on wood).
I noticed that too, but I guess I assumed that it was never supposed to work that way. I was unaware that at one time, it had. 🙂
Wait a minute. Are we talking about bugs in the forums or in HM3?! I thought the former… oO
I don’t get email notfications for topics I subscribed to. And the “Notify me of follow-up replies via email” doesn’t work either…
one of the biggest bugs I have noticed is sometimes some of the drop down menus freeze and cover items on the page
We’re just talking about the forums. Sorry — I should’ve been clearer.
Every time I log in to the forums it sends me back to the blog page instead of the forums page. I’m not sure if its a bug or not… still kinda frustrating though.
