Since yesterday (when I noticed), embedded tweets on Era do not load at all for me.
I'm using Chrome and apart from an update to it I installed a few minutes ago, nothing else changed on my end.
I cleared my cookies too but embedded tweets still don't load.
Edit: looking some more, chrome had cookies enabled but 3rd party cookies blocked (I didn't change or touch the option beforehand so it feels somewhat weird). I added twitter to the whitelist for cookies and now embedded tweets load fine.
I've always had 3rd party cookies enabled in Chrome and embedded tweets used to work but don't any longer. Cleared cache and added twitter to cookie whitelist but it didn't resolve the issue. No issues if I open Era in Firefox.
Edit: Of course seconds after I post it all seems to start working again. >.>
This may have been brought up in the past, but are there plans to address some of the issues with the "see more" style functionality of the quote system? If someone has quoted a tweet or an image that also includes an embedded link, it just opens a new window instead of expanding the comment when you try to do so. This is really frustrating. I'd like to be able to turn it off entirely if possible, but just being able to expressly expand the quote without activating the objects inside of it immediately would be a good start.
Had the same Twitter problem with uBlock Origin on Pale Moon - I think even regerdless of whitelisting ERA. I assume it's because that's a problem with an external script that handles the embedding? I've read Twitter changed something recently, although the extension creator supposedly fixed it. Or maybe it's one of the filters messing up after update?
Seems to do the job for me.
Hey, if we're going to auto italicize quotes, could we please unitalicized text that was italics in the original post? Like books do.
Right now, I feel like information is getting lost. Whether or not a word is in italics can change the meaning of a post.
I'm not sure how possible this is, but on the previous forum someone made an extension that changed all the imgur gifs (and from other websites too) into their mp4/gifv versions seamlessly, thus saving a lot of bandwidth. I'm not of much help here, but I think it's an option worth looking into (or for some other kind soul to develop a similar extension).
So apparently part of the 2FA system on Era is that you authorize the device to be "trusted" for 30 days. This is good. However this means that if you have 2FA enabled, exactly every 30 days you are logged out of the device and have to log in again. I don't know if this is intended behavior or not.
Does imgur work on here now?
And maybe I missed it, but how exactly does “ignore” work? If I block them can they still see my posts and reply to them? Will someone quoting them show up for me too?
Streamable is fantastic.
I still can't expand the vast majority of images shrunk by quotes. For example:
None of the images in those quotes get larger when I click on them. I can click the "expand" link on the quote itself to show the full content of the quote, but none of the images enlarge in size when I click on them. It's a constant source of frustration, I regularly have to open shrunk images in new tabs to view them full size.
Extremely rarely, though, I will find an image that does zoom correctly when I click on it. But I can't find a pattern.
Chrome in Windows 10 here, 4K display with 200% scaling.
Embeded Tweets for me have never loaded except once. Chrome and Firefox(new) on Win 7, and Safari and Chrome on Mac either. NO ad blocking or anything. It's very weird since everything else will show.
Awesome, thanks for the additional embeds. Streamable is great.
Looks like I'm not seeing embedded tweets anymore either. I used to be able to until just a few days ago I think. I wonder if Twitter is now blocking this function or if something else is wrong.
Any chance of adding a "Preview" button so we don't have to click on "More Options..." before clicking on "Preview..." to check that our post is how we like it before posting?
I can also no longer see embedded tweets, this is in both desktop and mobile Chrome.
This is happening with no AdBlock. Whitelisting Twitter for 3rd party cookies didn't help either.
EDIT: This worked after all the above, clearing the cache and restarting the browser a couple of times. Not sure which individual action sorted the issue (assuming it stays okay).
When you ignore a user, the color scheme still stays the same. Meaning you see to of the same color posts back to back. Hinting at something. Any way to make that change?
Well there's a way to make that change, I mean what does everyone think about that?
this page without a problem? Thanks!
Why are URLs shifted to the right side slightly?
Not like this
It also affect images that are linked to something else.
I too received the Cloudflare captcha out of the blue. It's a one click captcha to "prove you're a human and gives you temporary access to the web property". To prevent the captcha in the future, it tells you or the network administrator to scan for malware infected devices. "Another way to prevent getting this page in the future is to use Privacy Pass. Check out the browser extension in the Chrome Store." with a link to the extension. Bottom of the page shows a cloudflare id and ip.
I reset my network and the captcha didn't appear again. I guess this captcha is a legit security procedure? Basically advertising an browser extension is a bit odd though.
Will there be an option to preload all pictures on a page? I have a "slow" connection so I always open tabs in the background to preload. Now all I see are big spaces and it takes some time to even show if there is something loading :/
Wall of shame gone for anyone else?
Will we see a return of the "Top posters" function?
Is it possible for click to load picture, instead of the way it is now where it just kills the IMG tags, leaving only the URL? Mostly talking about mobile.
By the way, will the Preference options will be functional? The options to hide avatars, images and signatures have no effect at the moment.
I noticed the "Top Posters" link seems to have disappeared. Was that intentional?
twitter.com and platform.twitter.com whitelisted.
Having done some more A-B testing, I assume I made some kind of mistake when manually whitelisting earlier.
Hello, I noticed a problem with 50 posts per page (yes I know). Currently on mobile, not sure if it's desktop too.
Should bring me to page 22 when on 50ppp, but instead it takes me to page 11 which doesn't contain the post that's meant to be linked.
Thanks and sorry if this is an already reported problem.
Cant access threads from mobile. Everytime I click a thread I get a blank page
