Discourse 101


#104

Is there a way to change my timezone of replies and posts? For me, after seeing a new reply, the site defaults to saying it was posted 1h ago.


#105

I have the same problem. Except mine defaults it to saying it was posted 11 mins ago.


#106

Is it just me or does the forum crash a lot? I always get a message pop up saying unexpected error then I refresh the page and it’s fine. Another thing is that I have to click the Hitman logo several times most of the time to get back to the home page. One last thing I often find I can’t open topics and have to refresh the page before I can again. I don’t see how it could just be me as it happens on my iPad and my phone but who knows.


#107

Haven’t noticed any crashes at all, honestly. How often does this happen to you?


#108

All the time but as it just reloads instantly near enough it’s not too much bother unless I’m mid way through a post :smile:. I don’t get it because it happens on my phone which is Samsung running on chrome and my iPad running on safari strange I’m the only one :disappointed:.


#109

not sure, I think those things should be timezone-independent.

you can ask here if you really want to know


#110

Does anyone else get

“post admin actions”
“Admin”
“Make Wiki”

when looking at more options for posts?


#111

Yup. They’re probably just special actions for the mods. Would be nice to know what they do though


#112

Wiki posts are ones intended to be edited by others - if you’re doing a big technical project with multiple people etc it lets them edit their own section while tracking who does what etc.

Not particularly useful to the average Hitmanforum post.


#113

After latest update whenever there is some hidden post because it’s been flagged I have to click (on my phone) “view hidden content” two times in order to read that post.Not really a big problem,but weird to see it happen…


#114

I have to click it twice on my PC as well. I thought it was always like that.


#115

On phone I remember it wasn’t like that before.I rarely use PC so I can’t say…


#116

When you post something, does it say it was posted 11 mins ago immediately after posting? Because that’s what happens to me.


#117

Same,happens to me too.
On very rare occasions it says “posted 1 min ago”


#118

Yes I’ve seen this questioned before. Might have something to do with time zones although it’s weird. A minute is a minute no matter where you are.


#119

I have to click almost everything twice to get it to work :smile:. Also half the time I have to reload the main page several times before it will let me open a topic no idea why it’s the same on my phone and iPad.


#120

@Jarbinger is there a reason why this happens? Is there something in the settings we have to change?


#121

It has to do with how Discourse renders pages - basically instead of doing things the old fashioned way of creating a new page ever time you click, it used JavaScript/Dynamic HTML to update the page in live time and since that’s incredibly complicated they tend to let small bugs like “ten minutes ago” etc slide.


#122

Oh okay. It’s not a huge deal. I was just wondering why. Thx for the reply.


#123

This is what’s been happening to me today all of a sudden. Anybody else experiencing this? Like @Mr.Reaper said, It’ll crash but when I refresh it’s fine.
