New JS on Journals: Last Call

We're planning on taking the "new JavaScript on journals" changes out of beta soon and making the changes the default for the entire site, so we've done a push today that adds the last few (reported) missing features, and fixes the last few (reported) really annoying behaviors.

There's always going to be one thing more though, so please make sure that you turn on beta for the new JS on journals, and tell us how that new JS works for you -- or doesn't work, if that's the case.

I'm interested in hearing about everything that's bothering you, no matter how tiny it seems! The sooner we know, the sooner we can fix it. (Just this code push, we fixed two things that seemed tiny: one was the hover menu fading way too quickly, another was how the attempt to change your poll vote would bring to you to a separate page instead of changing your vote on the page you were on. They were both things we missed at first, but once they were brought to our attention, we couldn't stop seeing them. And now they're fixed!)

So poke around, and let us know what you find. If you're looking for something to focus on, here's a short list of things we recently added or fixed:

  • added same-page comment tracking

  • fixed same-page changing of poll votes

  • added displaying errors when comment expansion fails to work

  • fixed hover menu fading away even when you didn't move your mouse

  • fixed the .cuttag-open CSS class so it applies to the contents of the opened cut tag (the way the old JS did), for people who want to customize this in their styles

  • made the bottom arrow jump you to the top of the cut tag, without affecting page forward/back

Assuming there are no major issues, we'll turn on the "new JS on journals" beta flag for everyone with our next code push for one last round of testing with the whole site, not just the people who've turned on the beta version. We'll keep it as a beta option at that point, so if anyone has serious problems, they can disable the beta and go back to the old JS while we fix the problem. After that, we'll take this code out of beta and make it the standard option for everyone, removing the old (existing) JavaScript entirely. So, if something's wrong, speak up now!

The hover menu for icons (you have subscribed to fu!) on my friends page doesn't go away at all, even though I move my mouse away. It doesn't go away until I actually click somewhere else. Is that a feature or a bug? (The same thing seems to work differently for example for the commenting page, which I am on now to write this comment - the menu stays about a second or so after I've removed the mouse from the icon, but then goes away.)

[personal profile] kareila 2012-03-24 06:18 am (UTC)(link)
The delayed fadeout is a new feature - I think it was staying on indefinitely before, at least in the beta.

For me the hover menu on the reading page works as expected the first time, but then it flashes off immediately if I bring the same one up again. (Using Google Chrome.) Definitely some inconsistency there.

[personal profile] pocketmouse 2012-03-24 04:45 pm (UTC)(link)
I'm having this, too. Mouse over the icon, leave it there for a few seconds, and the move the mouse away, and the hover menu stays up. I think it's a bit too long to call it a delay. It's stayed up the entire time it took me to write this comment. To get it to go away, I have to mouse over again (sometimes twice). And mousing over something else doesn't get rid of it. I just moused over someone's icon and their username, and now I have two menus not going away.

I'm on Firefox 10.0.2, Mac 10.5.8.

Same problem here, also Firefox with Windows 7. Sometimes it fades out properly, sometimes it stays up until I click elsewhere on the page. I can sometimes have multiple hover windows up at the same time and one will fade and the other won't. It's not just my reading page for me; it's all over the site.

[personal profile] thomasneo 2012-07-04 08:52 am (UTC)(link)
Firefox 13.0.1, Windows XP Home SP3.

Hover menu for icons stay up for too long IMO. Should make it shorter, or start a poll to determine how long/short the menu should stay up. :)

Adding info to this: it also goes away if you hover over the pop-up itself. This seems to be a Firefox-only bug as it doesn't get stuck in other browsers for me.

The extra rows combined with the fullsize icons in the new icon selector gives me visual fatigue; I went into it a little more here. I would love it if we could at least have size options on the selector like we did in the previous one.

Hi! I wanted to second the visual fatigue issue with the new icon browser. It gets especially bad in premium accounts with over 150 icons, I think. Though in my case I believe it's more a matter of the width+showing so many icons per row—I find it more difficult to scan icons that way.

It may very well be a case of getting used to change, but I wanted to add my .02 anyway.

[personal profile] basilmemories 2012-03-24 07:40 am (UTC)(link)
Same here! I brought it up here, but just to ass the technical parts:

My main browser on the pc is firefox 10.2, I'm using the most recent android browser, and the laptop was chugging along on firefox 6 or 7 or so, it needs updating.

I'd like to see some size or column options for this, I understand that you don't intend to alter the size options? but I can't run greasemonkey on my phone (which I'm on more and more these days), at least not without using android's firefox, which is a steaming hot mess and a memory hog on my device.

I am having the same issue. But the fullsize icons in the previous browser never gave me that problem, so I'm not exactly sure what's causing it for me this time. Possibly it might be the white colour of the browser? Somehow when it's on top of the greyed out page it looks kind of bright and glaring.

[personal profile] zaluzianskya 2012-03-25 01:49 am (UTC)(link)
Size options would be great. Since some people have issues with the fullsize images and others (myself included) hated the smaller images, what about making it just default to whatever you chose last? That was my main issue with the old browser, that it would always default to smaller images even though I preferred the fullsize ones.

Agreed on the old size behaviour! Though I definitely like having more than two columns in the new browser, too :)

[personal profile] articletwelve 2012-03-24 09:06 am (UTC)(link)
Slightly contrary to those above, but I love this icon browser's width and size and just being able to sort through so many icons without as much scrolling. The one nagging thing is that the browser doesn't remember it when I click "Images only" or "Show meta text" past that particular instance. Is this something that can be set or cookied in some way, or is it stuck as something to pick every time? I'd happily just use images only all the time, but since there's no way to stick with it I never bother with the setting.

Also, not sure if I should mention stuff about the Create Entries beta here, but there's one thing on that that drives me nuts -- the title attribute on the main entry textarea. Whenever I'm writing something that involves a lot of coding, or just selecting text in general, or if I simply leave my cursor there, the bubble pops up and gets to be very annoying. I know that it's important for accessibility to label the textarea, but it would be a lot less frustrating if it were using the alt attribute instead so that it didn't constantly pop up.

No, it's not cookie-based, it sets a prop on your account (so it follows you around from computer to computer). I'm not sure why it's not working for you -- if you try it in another browser does it remember your settings?

I'm having problems with the new icon browser in both of my (admittedly very old) browsers.

In Safari (1.3.2), if I click on Browse nothing happens at all. In Firefox (1.0), a window pops up that is so small that I can only see part of one icon, and I need to scroll down to see the rest of it and the keyword, never mind the rest of my icons.

The previous icon browser worked perfectly in both Safari and Firefox, including the options for changing the icon sizes, which is a feature I'd really like to keep.

Just to doublecheck, do you have Javascript enabled (and if you use an extension like NoScript that selectively enables JS, do you have dreamwidth.org -- not www.dreamwidth.org -- whitelisted?)

Oh, well -- thanks for the info anyway! One last "rule out the little stuff first" type thing: can you try clearing your browser cache, then restarting both your computer and your browser and trying again?

Unfortunately, we can't guarantee that we'll fix this, since we do only support the most recent versions of the Big Five (Firefox, Safari, Chrome, IE, and Opera) and one version back on everything but Opera; both Firefox 1.0 and Safari 1.3 were released in 2003. If it turns out to be an easy fix that's very obvious we may be able to do something, but I won't guarantee it, and I can't say how much time and effort we'll be able to put into troubleshooting or tracking down the root cause. :(

I am truly the last person in the world to advocate updating software that you're 100% happy with (I am still using a chat client that was discontinued in 2005 because I hate the user interface of every other chat client I've tried, and I'm using the same irc client that I first started using in 1996 or so) but if you're able to update to more recent versions, you may want to consider it. I'm guessing you're using an older operating system, which likely means you can't update Safari, but it might be worth trying the 3.6.X line of Firefox if it will run on your system. I know this is not always an option, and you don't need to explain to me why if it isn't possible! I'm just throwing that out there as a possibility, since I do feel bad that we can't support older versions of browsers all the way back to the beginning.

(For amusement's sake, I once turned on an old computer and tried getting Netscape 2.0 -- the browser I was using in 1995 or so -- to run with the modern internet. It was hysterical.)
lethe1: (buffering)

[personal profile] lethe1 2012-03-25 07:02 pm (UTC)(link)
No, clearing the caches didn't help. Thanks anyway, though :)

Oh well, it's just another reminder that I really should buy a new laptop. (It's just that I don't wannaaaaaa! I love my sleek Natasha, but unfortunately she's too old to upgrade.)

A year ago it became impossible for me to download the software to file my tax return online, so I had to do it at work. I told myself that I should buy a new computer within a year. Now a year has passed and taxes are once again upon us, and no new laptop has been bought, so once more I have to file at work. *sigh*

I try to tell myself that a nice shiny new laptop with lots of space will be worth the hassle of having to install everything again. I'm getting there. Eventually. :)

*takes a moment to mourn Netspace*

[personal profile] eyesofstrength, below, was having a similar problem and narrowed it down to three extensions (tab counter, tab mix plus and tabs menu) -- do you have any of those installed? If not, can you try the exclusion method I described in this comment and see if you can narrow down which extensions are causing the problem?

I was getting a jquery error (which I screencapped, if you want it). Firefox 11, Mac 10.5.8. I have Tab Mix Plus, so I disabled that and restarted, but then it threw errors at me from other addons, specifying the addons this time, specifically for DoNotTrackPlus and HTTPS-Everywhere. With those two disabled but Tab Mix Plus on, it works, if a bit slow. If I turn one of them on, it throws a jquery error at me, not an add-on error.

ETA: And then it did it again, this time telling me there was an error in ghostery. Basically, it's not happy with any of my security addons.

I've actually been having issues expanding comments for some time, but I've been opted into the beta for months, just had no idea it was beta related. I have two computers and it only happens on one of them. The other works perfectly fine and is nearly the same setup except OS is different since it's newer.

Affected computer has following setup:

OS: Windows XP (fully updated)
Browser: Firefox 3.6.4
Add-ons: Adblock plus, greasemonkey, ljlogin, noscript (and DW is fully allowed), session manager, tab counter, tab mix plus, tabs menu and youtube to mp3

The computer that works uses same version and has all those add-ons but a few additional ones like Stylish. Only other difference is it uses Windows 7 instead of XP. I can provide a more detailed list of add-ons for the working one later once I'm off work.

And on this computer, expanding works fine in Chrome, but I hate using Chrome on this computer because it will give me a BSOD once a day.

Just to gather some data/run some quick exclusion tests:

* If you disable the extensions on the computer you're having problems with, does the problem go away?

* If you only disable LJLogin, does the problem go away? (We have had many, many reports of LJLogin causing all kinds of grief in various ways -- if you're looking for something that will easily let you log in/log out as various accounts, I strongly strongly recommend CookieSwap or a similar full-cookie-profile-swapping extension, instead of LJLogin, until we can do the main/alternate account system we've been planning for a while!)

* Just to clarify (since your comment could've been taken one of two ways) -- is the affected computer the one that Chrome works on, or is that a different computer? In other words: do you have the same problem expanding threads in other browsers on the computer that's having the problem expanding threads in Firefox?
eyesofstrength: (Default)

[personal profile] eyesofstrength 2012-03-25 04:19 pm (UTC)(link)
Okay, just to clarify, affected computer works fine in Chrome.

And to answer your other comment, it's clean on viruses and malware, just ran scans manually to be on the safe side.

Disabling LJLogin only doesn't help at all. Will try the rest here shortly.

[staff profile] denise 2012-03-25 04:37 pm (UTC)(link)
Awesome, thank you (knowing which is the problem extension will help us to figure out if we can work around it or if we'll have to tell people to disable that extension, etc)

Quick tip for narrowing it down more easily than just disabling them one at a time: let's say you have 20 extensions installed (just for easy explanation). Start by disabling #1-10 and see if you have the problem: if you do, the problem has to be one of those. (If not, it's with one of the ones in the #11-20 half of the list and you should test with those instead.) Disable half the remaining (so, #s 5-10), test again; if you still have the problem, the issue is with one of the 5 remaining. Disable 4 and 5, test again; if you still have the problem, the issue is with one of the 3 remaining. Etc.

When you hit the point where you aren't having the problem anymore, the issue is with one of the remaining extensions. So, if you disable 4 and 5 and the problem goes away, the problem is with one of those two. Disable 4, test, if you don't have the problem then it was #4; if you do have the problem, it was with #5. This way you can narrow it down more quickly!

It may also be that the issue is with an interaction of more than one extension. To disprove that: once you've got the suspected culprit, disable all extensions but that one, then test again. If the problem still happens, that's good: it means you've definitely found the extension that's causing the issues. (And please do let us know what it is so we can see if we can reproduce the problem ourselves, thus allowing us to work on fixing it!) If the problem doesn't happen with only that extension enabled, it's a conflict with multiple extensions behaving badly with each other, and you're going to have to do some more research, unfortunately.

At that point: enable the problem extension, then repeat the ever-narrowing exclusion tests you did in the first step (so if the problem extension was #4, start with #4 enabled, then #1-10 in addition and see if you have the problem, yadda, each time cutting the # of extensions you have enabled in half but making sure to keep the problem extension as one of them).

Before you do all that, you may want to rule out one more thing: it could be that NoScript is being weird. Try forbidding scripts to run from dreamwidth.org, then go back to NoScript's whitelist and add "dreamwidth.org" back to it (not www.dreamwidth.org) See if doing that helps to prevent the timeout problem?

[personal profile] eyesofstrength 2012-03-25 05:11 pm (UTC)(link)
It actually was a few extensions. Thankfully I don't have that many on this computer, but all the tab related ones were the issue. So that was tab counter, tab mix plus and tabs menu. I can live without them for now until things are more stable since living without those is better than BSODs that I get with Chrome.

[staff profile] denise 2012-03-25 05:21 pm (UTC)(link)
Huh. How weird; I don't know why they should be causing problems with loading/executing Javascript, but that is at least good to know! (I have Tab Mix Plus installed myself, and have never had any problems with it; I wonder if it's maybe something about the three of them together?)
eyesofstrength: (Default)

[personal profile] eyesofstrength 2012-03-25 05:52 pm (UTC)(link)
The especially strange part, I could swear my working computer has all three as well. And while I was checking only had one enabled at a time and didn't work with each one, so that rules out interactions as well.

I'll make sure to give the rundown of what my computer that was working has because I'm sure that won't hurt, I just can't access Firefox on it while at work.

Edit: And now it just started doing it again with the same setup we just had working fine. Windows XP machine, firefox 3.6.4 and the add-ons above minus the tab related ones.

Okay, so to provide some more info. Computer that expanding threads works in in has the following setup:

Windows 7
Firefox 3.6.4
Add-ons: adblock plus, greasemonkey, lj login, noscript, session manager, stop autoplay, tab counter, tab mix plus, stylish, tabs menu, text link, and youtube to mp3

So I was right, both computers have the same overall setup, just this one has Stylish and Text Link instead and Windows 7. Expanding works great here except an every now and then error that fixes itself with a refresh. About the only thing that seems to work for sure to get the other computer to expand threads is to turn off beta testing. For now I'm just going to leave a tab open with that because I'd rather toggle the beta testing than use chrome. Chrome and my other computer do not play nice with each other at all, so at least you got it somewhat working with a workaround in Firefox for me and that's something I can deal with until the bug causing that is found.

[personal profile] eyesofstrength 2012-03-27 02:22 pm (UTC)(link)
No error. What happens is it does a spinning thing like it will load and then just sits there. I've tried leaving it open to see if it will load and it will stay sitting there spinning away all day if I let it.

And to answer your below question, site skin only. Troposphereical red and purple have both been tried. I don't use custom pages at all.

My main computer does every now and then get something about no response, basically spins gives an error, I refresh and it works. Never get an error on the secondary that hates expanding, it just sits there forever. So maybe it's not even sending anything out for some reason?

Thanks for the timely response, you and Denise are definitely awesome and have me in a better position than I was before at least even if it's not fully resolved.

OK, I just answered a bunch of polls at dw_suggestions, and every time I voted from my reading page, after voting I'd end up on the entry page on suggestions. I wasn't changing my vote, this was my initial vote.

Previous to today, I last voted probably on the 18th-19th, with the last set of suggestions. I don't recall if I voted anywhere else, so I think this issue came in with the code push.

Yeah, this happened to me today as well. Answering a poll took me to the poll page, then, back on my reading list, the "view answers" link also took me to the poll page. Basically interacting with polls takes me somewhere else instead of letting me do that from my reading list, like it used to.

Opera 10, and there weren't any error messages. My votes took; they just also took me away from my reading list.

Firefox 11, Mac 10.5.8.

I'm not sure what you mean by error console. Everything loads fine, there's no lag, it just loads me onto the page for the entry that had the poll, instead of keeping me on my reading page/network/etc.

Browsing a few longer threads on [community profile] cfud tonight, and getting Unresponsive Script Errors when I try to expand them. One of the threads that threw the error was this one: http://cfud.dreamwidth.org/6388099.html?thread=3096672899#cmt3096672899

I turned off beta-testing, refreshed the page, and clicked the Expand link again, and it loaded just fine then, if a bit slow. But, I'd rather have slow loading than error messages!

Using Camino Version 2.1.2 ( 20120308211433). Camino is a port of Firefox for Macs, in case you aren't familiar with it.

Out of curiosity, I tried it in Safari on another account of mine, and had no problems, both with/without betatesting turned on. So it looks like it's definitely a Camino issue.

Sorry this is so late, but I only noticed this now b/c a friend pointed it out to me (since I had this feature turned off). They discovered that when they tried to leave the first comment on an entry of mine with zero prior comments, using the inline-commenting tool (rather than loading the whole page with ?mode=reply), for some reason the comment box appears on the far side of my journal like so: http://i.imgur.com/JVP7j.png

This only happens on the first comment; after that everything is fine. I tested this as well after turning the beta feature on and got the same result. I suspect this might be in part b/c I am using a style that is ported from LJ, and maybe it's got something different in how it's written from the DW styles, and possibly this is not something DW is concerned with if that's why it's happening. But in case it happens with DW styles too or just so you know anyway, thought I'd mention it. :)

You've probably turned on the second beta test, the new create entries page. Hit the gear icon in the upper right, and then you can check or uncheck whatever boxes you'd like (including crossposting)

Rich text isn't implemented in the Create Entries beta yet. If you need the rich text editor, go back to http://www.dreamwidth.org/betafeatures and turn off the second of the two beta tests.

I was told that the following script failed to run earlier when I tried to expand a thread:


But the thread in question expanded fine though for a moment after clicking it my browser looked like it was ready to crash until it asked me if I wanted to stop the script.

I'm currently using Firefox if that helps any.

Rich text is not yet enabled in the Create Entries beta. That's a separate beta test from the new Javascript. If you need rich text, you can go back to http://ww.dreamwidth.org/betafeatures and turn off the second of the two options (the Create Entries beta)!

Don't know if anyone's brought it up yet: I created an entry in beta which I set aside to post something else and when I went back to post the first item I fell into a time warp got a message that I needed to check "Don't show on reading page," which of course one can't do in beta; there's no way one can "post-date" in beta. This is probably one of the items that will be added back later. I simply hadn't noticed it wasn't there.

I'm another one having trouble expanding comments on my two accounts that are using beta features. It's extremely laggy - as in it kind of never works ever - and refreshing the page doesn't help, no matter what. If I switch to an account without beta features, then expanding works fine. No error messages, it just says "loading" forever.

For clarification:

- I'm using up-to-date Firefox on a Mac, ljlogin, Adblock Plus, and Greasemonkey (but my only script is for LJ and I don't think I have it turned on anyway), and I never had this problem before turning on beta features yesterday.

- I've actually only been on site skin pages so far, so I can't tell you if it happens on custom comment pages.

Hope this helps!

Does it happen on every account, or just on accounts with deeply nested threads?

[personal profile] minifridge 2012-04-11 09:03 pm (UTC)(link)
So far I've only been in posts with deeply nested threads or posts without anything collapsed at all, but it happens both on threads where there's only one collapsed comment and on deeply nested threads. Does that help at all?

It might, yeah! deeply nested threads (like, when you're trying to expand 80+ comments) are a trouble spot right now for performance suckage reasons.

I know I'm late with this but I'm wondering, is there any way to navigate the new icon browser using keyboard commands? I can't seem to find any key combinations that work. If there isn't there really should be. I didn't realise how much I missed it until LJ changed so you could navigate their new browser with the arrow keys.

This (probably) isn't a bug, but I don't really like the amount of space that's now given in- between collapsed comments in the new JS beta; I liked it better closer together. Maybe it's an accessibility thing, though?

I'm hitting an odd issue with tracking comments - I can click on "Track This", get the AJAX popup thingy, choose to track comments on that entry, click save, and it apparently does save if I check in another tab or refresh the window, but it still says "Track This" instead of "Untrack This", so it looks like that part isn't refreshing properly. I think it used to, otherwise it wouldn't be confusing me this much?

I'm using the current Chrome on Windows 7 and have Adblock, Stylish and a few other extensions, but none that I'd guess are interfering here.

I have no doubt that I'm late - but I ran into a weird problem using Opera 11.62 (Mac) trying to post a new entry.

The page loaded fine, no problem; I wrote my entry and added the currents, then tried to click Post Entry. Nothing happened. This didn't happen before in Opera, so I'm a bit confuzzled. Or something.

This is the error I received:

HTML style attribute
Unknown pseudo class
Line 1:

And a new Post error, this time in Opera Next, ver. 12.00 beta, build 1387 (Mac OS)

Client error: Invalid argument(s): Invalid year value (must be in the range 1970-2037).

hello! I very recently discovered issues relating to the 'post new comment' button and the javascript on beta that handles thread and cut expansion, as well as the 'browse' and 'random entries' buttons on the create entries page.

I've made a support request here with the details of the problem and what I've attempted to do to resolve the problems on my own, and a friend suggested I comment here as well.

Thank you for your time!

And since news advised it and I happened to have my secondary computer on, still having the same thread expansion issue on one computer only that only turning the beta off seems to resolve. Basically the one where it sits there loading forever and doesn't expand the thread.

And honestly, using the beta bogs down thread expansion a lot even on the computer it does work on, often temporarily freezing my browser with a long thread for a minute or more and that is not in the least bit tolerable when the current one works almost instantly.

Yup, that's one part of it that hasn't been implemented yet ([personal profile] fu is working on it). That's not part of this particular beta-feature test, though -- this is just for the new JavaScript inside the journal itself, not the new update page! (Which is definitely further away from being ready to take out of beta.)

The new posting form does not have any information (to say nothing for the possibility to change it) about the time of the post.

Please correct it, it's a necessary feature.

Hit the gear icon in the upper right corner and enable the "Display Date" module. Date and time can then be changed by hitting the icon next to the timestamp in that module.

I noticed that as I toggled to each field with my screen reader, the page kept reading that I was testing the new beta or something, and I couldn't use the field for this as it operates like a pop-up, it confused and frustrated me as it seemed to be tracking myy vertual cursor

This is kind of late in the game, but I enabled the beta for posting entries, and I am adoring this. I love how I can select what I want to show when and where, and that I can change this at any time.

The interface isn't the prettiest, but it's clean and minimalistic, which is a breath of fresh air, as other sites do not have this, or are changing from it. Why they would do this, I don't know.

The interface that you have for browsing tags is lovely too, but maybe you could somehow work it so longer tags are still on one line?

I am not sure how LiveJournal does it, but their tag browsing interface has that. If I recall correctly, the longer ones kind of fade before they get to the next column (so you don't see the whole thing), instead of wrapping to the next line like yours does. I think that LJ's version might not be good for longer tags that need to be read completely.

Maybe you could do a smaller font? I have terrible eyesight, and I am sure that something a bit smaller wouldn't hinder me, maybe something along the 9-10px range.

One more added critique for the tag browser, is that instead of having the list go from left to right like this:


It could go like a typical list:


I just think that might be a little easier, as the eyes naturally go down and then up and over when reading lists, while with full paragraphs with text, they go from left to right and then down to the left again.

But all in all, this is a wonderful posting page and I love it!


Also, still on the topic of the tag selector, could it be possible to have the "save" button down at the bottom of that screen? It's kind of awkward for it to be up in the top right when all other save or update buttons are down at the bottom left or bottom right.

But this is just minor and me nitpicking, I am sure that there are lots more important suggestions.
