Lag/invisible text when typing new topic titles in Safari


(Francis Maria Regalado) #1

I’m really liking the Discourse forum experience so far, but a couple of my team members/fellow users encountered this weird bug that only happens when you start a new topic in Safari. All users are running the latest version of OSX Yosemite.

When you click on the topic title/subject field in the new topic window, the whole thing lags significantly when you type or even shift your mouse around. A couple of milliseconds later, the letters do appear but immediately vanish. The finished text only reappears when you click elsewhere. I had a programmer replicate the experience successfully on Safari (also on OSX Yosemite). Here’s what she said:

Something’s wrong with their code under html. Under input.

This is faulty
class=“ember-view ember-text-field requirements-not-met”

I think it just doesn’t display right away. When you click anywhere else like the area underneath the text, it appears. Look at this. The line is problematic.

input id=“reply-title” class=“ember-view ember-text-field requirements-not-met” placeholder=“What is this discussion about in one brief sentence?” tabindex=“2” type=“text” maxlength=“255”

I have zero coding knowledge, but I need to know if this is something you could fix on your end. Thanks!

This is old, you need to upgrade to latest

We’re signed up for the cloud-based version of Discourse though. Where could I find the updates?

Are we hosting you, what site is this?

You are going to have to ask them for support then, flag to reopen if you can make this happen on try.discourse.org or here
