    Tiny errors in BB code markup can turn your post into a mess 🙃

    Original bug report (or "complaint") here in german: https://www.computerbase.de/forum/threads/in-eigener-sache-das-neue-computerbase-forum-ist-da.1801339/post-22008449 I've tried to come up with a more generic test-case. Consider the following BB code: - Link Text - Link Text Text Text -...

    Fixed "Node extra" column on forum index: Link to "unread" instead of "latest"?

    The "node extra" column on the forum index page contains a link that points to the last post in the given node. I'd say it serves as a mechanism to get a glimpse of a node's contents right on the forum index page. One of our users has pointed out that it would make more sense if the link pointed...

    Fixed Fix handling of "tel:" URLs

    The screenshot in the first post doesn't show links that Safari just added on-the-fly. In fact, the screenshot doesn't show Safari but Google Chrome. The links exist as BB code in the post markup. I suspect that they ended up there because a Safari user copy-pasted text from another site (where...

    Fixed Fix handling of "tel:" URLs

    With this meta tag you can disable auto-linking of (suspected) telephone numbers in your own forum. So it helps in the case when a Safari user copy-pastes text from your own forum into a new post. But I assume it won't help if a Safari user copy-pastes text from other websites (that don't use...

    Fixed Fix handling of "tel:" URLs

    When you try to post a "tel:" URL like Call me! then XenForo prepends the absolute forum URL to it. Needless to say, this breaks, the "tel:" URL. I think XenForo should either fix the handling of "tel:" URLs or strip them completely. I'm in favor of stripping them because of two reasons: 1)...

    Fixed Please add missing "category" element to RSS feeds (patch included)

    One of our users just pointed out that the "category" element is missing from our feeds since we migrated from vBulletin to XenForo. Seems to easy enough to add it back. :) --- a/src/XF/Pub/View/Forum/Rss.php +++ b/src/XF/Pub/View/Forum/Rss.php @@ -63,6 +63,10 @@ class Rss extends \XF\Mvc\View...

    Please add missing rel="canonical" meta tags to some pages (login, register, lost-password, help, poll results)

    This isn't a huge deal but these are the only XenForo pages that a crawler regularly reports as "<link rel=canonical> not found". All other XenForo pages already have a rel="canonical" meta tag out of the box. :)(y) --- a/src/addons/XF/_data/templates.xml +++...

    Design issue Spoiler BB code duplicated when used in combination with inline BB codes

    Enter the following BB code: Line 1 Line 2 Line 3 (And switch back to WYSIWYG mode if you've used plaintext mode to enter this BB code.) Now select all (Ctrl+A) and click the editor button Insert → Spoiler → Continue. The result looks like this: Clicking the preview button now results in...

    Implement asynchronous image decoding via <img decoding="async">

    To reduce rendering jank, asynchronous image decoding with <img decoding="async"> (HTML5 specification) should be used at least for attachment images which can be quite large (and maybe for avatars in the forum and thread views, too). AMP uses it for all images. It is supported in Chrome 65+...

    "Click to expand..." link/button for quote blocks sometimes missing (race condition)

    The "Click to expand..." link/button sometimes just doesn't appear and the quote block is cut-off midways. This is a race condition. I can reproduce the problem sometimes but not always, one of our users says that he can reliably reproduce the problem in the following example (both of us are...

    Positioning of menus and tooltips vs. the sticky header

    XenForo tries to position tooltips such that they are never hidden by the sticky header. They are positioned above the triggering element if there is enough space below the sticky header: If I scroll just a few pixels further down then there isn't enough space anymore between the triggering...

    Third party Firefox on Windows breaks page layout when ctrl-dragging word in the editor

    Open any XenForo page with the Froala editor like "Post thread". Write some text and select it. It should look like this: Now try to start dragging the selected text while holding the ctrl key. Immediately (before you're really able to drag it) this happens: I've only been able to...

    Fixed DuplicateKeyException: Duplicate entry 'post-123-456' for key 'content_type_id_like_user_id'
