Create Topic box hangs if I type long text


(Akshar Prabhudesai) #1

I have found that the “create post” text box (mardown box let us call it) is pretty much useless when typing or pasting long text. It works fine if I just keep typing, it hangs if I press backspace or try to use any kind of markdown features.

This is understandable but I think this issue needs to be fixed. I hope the team has some kind of stress testing of this feature on their cards.

This might be related: I just wanted to edit the post of another user (as admin) that had about 500 words in it. The whole site froze and the editor would only show the ‘Save edits’ button.

There seem to be some regressions in the editor lately. We will have a look.

I’ve just deployed a fix for a major regression I created… when adding support for the :poop: emoticon.

The previous solution I deployed ended up creating WAY too many matchers in the markdown dialect (one per emoji). I hand rolled a better emoticon finder and it’s much faster now and should be back to the previous non-slow levels.

Sorry about that!
