Spoiler bug
« on: March 29, 2012, 09:26:20 PM »
I don't know if anyone else has noticed this, but I use spoilers a lot so I've noticed a couple minor bugs. First, spoilers don't want to open for me after I do the little edits that don't have to go to a new page. I'll save my edit, and then the spoiler won't want to open for me unless I refresh the page. Second and kind of similar is that spoilers won't open when I'm previewing. At least until I actually post it. So it's like the spoilers are there to keep ME from seeing what I'm trying to say which is a little funny actually.

I don't know what might be causing these but they're a little annoying considering how much I use spoilers for the IC record I'm keeping in the pbp forums. I happen to use Firefox if that's relevant and the problem doesn't come up with spoilers except in those specific instances. Rest of the time they're fine. Thank you for whatever help can be spared for this minor issue.

It's not just you; I've experienced it as well.  (I'm also using Firefox.)

I have not noticed the thing with editing but Chrome has the same issue about previews.

Has there been any progress on figuring out what is causing this bug? I've noticed it's still happening and was wondering if it was possibly fixable.

I have a feeling this issue, while important in its own way, won't be prioritized until the site redesign is done coinciding with the 1.0 release.

Yes, if I fixed this now, it would quite likely need fixing again when the site redesign is finished.

The site redesign isn't coinciding with 1.0 - it should come a lot sooner.
