The incoming links(the arrows above the “reply as new topic”) to a post seem to disappear after some time.
I kept linking to this post in a few other topics but the incoming arrows never stayed there for more than a day before vanishing.
The outgoing arrows seem to be working though. I think.
Yeah I’ve noticed that and I think it’s a caching issue. Discourse recently changed a bunch of their caching stuff around but I can’t upgrade our forums to the latest build yet because it currently completely breaks our custom login functionality. I’m working with them to resolve the issue.
This is not a bug per se, but could we get a link at the top pointing to the actual main site, instead of the forum page, please? The alternative would be the addition of a new link while keeping the current one as well.
They weren’t like this up until approximately a month ago. Your avatar is actually colored just the same as Andre’s but Flavien and Gene’s avatar is black & white, and as stated, Flavien’s has a look of high contrast and Gene’s is gray-ish, almost white to where you cannot see him clearly. Maybe it’s a bug within my own system. : )
Not so much a bug as a feature, but on editing one of Kichae’s graphs from this post:
into this post (directly above it):
it seems the System automatically edited my post to use a locally saved copy of the image.
Why am I posting about this here when it’s so obviously a feature? Well, as I said I got the image, and it’s link, from Kichae’s post. Pretty sure it was locally saved then, too. Seems kind of silly to double the storage and bandwidth used, even if it really doesn’t matter much.
Currently both your post and Kichae’s post point to the same local image. (Both the scaled down version and full size)
Unless you’ve edited it, it seems Discourse doesn’t duplicate images it retrieves.
Because when you edited your post to include the image, the link in Kichae’s post was still to the external source?
When the image fetching job ran (it runs periodically) it found links to external images in both your posts.
It would have processed one before the other (not sure which order because your post was earlier but your edit was later) and when it found the second one it would have seen that it was an image that had already been fetched and edited the post to point to the same local image.
