Fetching Preview never loads?
« on: October 06, 2014, 01:48:32 PM »
Fetching Preview never loads?  I'm just wondering if it's only me seeing this.  No big deal.  I nearly always have to edit to fix typos so preview isn't central to my posting strategy anymore.  :)

I assume you mean the "Preview" button when posting...if so, it works on my end for whatever that is worth.

Works with quick reply, but not from full reply screen for me.

Oh, yeah, doesn't work in full screen reply here either.  Just shows:

"Preview post
Fetching preview..."

odd - works perfectly here - could it be browser based, or just chance?
FF 32.03 here

hah - I added the attachment and tried again - now it's doing the 'fetching preview' thing - unsuccessfully.
Will try clicking post...

Plain text will preview here - as soon as there's any BB code it stalls


EDIT// but if I go to edit it will no longer preview at all

"Fetching Preview never loads" - started happening a LOT for me, a couple of weeks back. A real PITA. Firefox - latest ß version.
My workaround is to copy all the comment text I have written, then Ctrl-R to reload the page then reply again, pasting the copied text. It usually (not always) works. I thought it was probably a cache/buffer problem.

Are you using Lazarus?  I haven't had an issue with losing text with it.  I've only run into this a few times.  I forget what steps I took when it happened.  Back button or whatnot I don't remember.  I just remember I didn't lose what I typed.

I should come clean.  There was a problem introduced by latest smf forum update a few days ago; i just fixed it 5 minutes ago and was teasing you guys :Thmbsup:
So it should be working now.

Let's try it out.




Yup.  It does work.  Mouser I wonder if it would be possible to simply paste images from clipboard instead of using img tag or uploading a file.  It's way more fun.  :)  (Since you seem to be in the mood for fixing stuff today.)   :)
