Link dialog New Topic does not always include context

(Dave McClure) #1

When I click + New Topic the composer is blank. Shouldn’t it be filled in with the link or something?

With the new right gutter, where should "Reply as Linked Topic" go?

Which one are you clicking on? As the topic one is indeed blank, the post one isn’t. The +New Topic requires a post context, which makes the link on the topic more difficult.

Oh wait… @zogstrip, something weird is going on, as when I use @mcwumbly’s post above, it is blank, but if I use @codinghorror’s post, it fills out properly.

Strike that, repo is last 2 posts fails to insert link, all other posts work fine.

The last post that does is

I’m getting similar inconsistent results. Using this thread, if I click ‘share’ -> ‘reply as linked topic’, the composer fills out the linked topic for posts 91 and above, but the most recent posts 92 & 93 are resulting in a blank composer.

I’m still not getting context on Meta nor Try.

Seems to be working for me, perhaps reopen with an exact repro?

(Régis Hanol) #13

I actually can reproduce. Will fix…
