This one is possibly a bit unusual…
I am in the processing of creating a fairly lengthy post which includes links to images / videos / sketchfab from a variety of posts during 2016. I am pasting in the URLs from the actual images already posted rather than adding them all over again.
Unfortunately, a few minutes ago, the tab within Chrome became unresponsive. I am not certain whether I have hit a limit for the size of a post, perhaps a limit on the size that can be saved asynchronously? (saved as text file the content is 16kb which just seems a tad coincidental).
Anyway… whilst I still have the content if I open a new browser window / tab for the post, all of the links (and there are a LOT of them) have changed back in the preview window from being the relevant images / videos / sketchfab oneboxes, to just text for the links.
One of the team here previously mentioned to me that sometimes the content gets cached and by adding ?v=1 etc to the end of the URL it will force it to load it correctly - I have tried this on a couple of the links and it made no difference. I am now somewhat stuck.
The post is not yet finished and will be significantly longer by the time it is, but the re-working of all of these links, assuming I can re-work them, is going to be painful (especially if whatever caused the issue happens again).
Any ideas / thoughts?
No new entries to this post using URLs Onebox the images / video / sketchfab item in the preview either.
I’ve just noticed that, having been creating this post for over 4 hours, it’s quite possible that it has coincided with your release of 1.7. That said, as a hosted customer, I believe we were already on that version, but having just viewed source I see we are now on 1.8… not sure when this changed, but… is there any chance that my post has been effected because of this item from the listed of 1.8 features?
Implement mini-onebox for internal links (replace with title)
I am currently stuck not knowing whether to keep writing the post, knowing that I may need to go back and do something with all the links, or, if I have killed it because of the length of the post, stop writing the post.
