    Here's a guide on how to file a good bug report.
    The better the bug report, the easier the bug can be found and fixed.

    Here's how a bug report should look:
    • The title should be descriptive yet short. A brief but descriptive title.
    • In the post, provide all the information you can give. Nothing is unimportant.
    • Please provide as much screenshots as possible.
    • If you know a possible fix, feel free to provide it, maybe you're even smarter than the developer?
    • Please let us know what xF Versions are affected. If you only tested it on one version, say so.
    • Please tell us what browser you are using, we also need the version number of the browser. Browser versions can mostly by found in the "About BrowserName" section.
    • Please provide the URL of your board, so we can check it ourself. If you don't feel like sharing, you can always send it to a staff member.
    • Before filing the bug report, it can come handy to revert your templates or to reupload some affected files. This may fix your issue.
    • Please tell us what you did exactly. Try and tell us in steps so we can try to reproduce it.
    Please search before you file a bug, it may already be filed or fixed.

    If this is done, I'm guessing Bug Fixing will go even smoother :D
