Hello! A few days ago, me and @JonnyGamer submitted a bug report regarding “topic nuking”. Discourse fixed this really fast, but now, there are a few more bugs that @JonnyGamer and some others has found at forum.gethopscotch.com.
Firstly, I have no idea whether these bugs are because of the configuration as I don’t are an admin, and if this isn’t a general software bug, you could just close the topic, I don’t mind.
The second bug kind of breaks the tag system. I’ll quote @JonnyGamer’s “bug report”:
When writing tags for your topic, write one of them as: ﷽﷽﷽﷽﷽﷽﷽﷽﷽﷽﷽﷽﷽﷽﷽﷽﷽﷽﷽﷽
﷽ is the widest unicode character that fits into the forum. And since you are only allowed to have a tag be at max 20 characters, “﷽” is the widest for this form.
To reach the topic above, you have to be Regular on The Hopscotch Forum. I think that @techAPJ already have a leader account there, so he/she might be able to see and get more information about those bugs.
Thanks for reporting these, the tag name exploit was definitely the worst one because it broke the page layout for everyone. I also fixed some of the issues with the big/small/sup/sub tags, so once Discourse is updated those won’t cause any more problems.
That’s not too weird: there’s a space between each “k ”, and the <s> creates a strikethrough, so the bar is a strikethrough on a space. And since the space is outside of the <sub> tags, the space is higher than the text that comes after it.
By the way: I’ve noticed that someone changed the tag style inside text fields. I really don’t like it. The old style has more white space on top and bottom. On the right and left side, I’m missing a little bit of grey space. It’s very irritating if tags are displayed on different ways
Right, this is actually unrelated to font changes. It turns out that tags had no max-width restrictions, which allowed someone to break the layout of pages by making tags with characters like: ﷽. Now tags that are too long are truncated with CSS, and adding the ability to truncate caused some alignment changes.
@terraboss@schungx I’ll take a look at the bullet/box tag styles now and make sure those alignment issues are fixed.
