5/10/2020 @James and I completed the Discuss upgrade this afternoon. Apologies for the downtime. The upgrade comes with lots of new goodness, including future upgrades through the web ui and working email notifications via sidekiq. That said, small issues may crop up as a result of the upgrade. Let’s use this thread for reporting and resolving such issues.
Having trouble with Discuss? Let us know!
Users with Trust Level 1+ can edit this post to report any problems they’ve encountered. If you’ve discussed them in other posts, feel free to link them via url.
I’m testing creating a new account, and when I fill out all the requested information, the “Create New Account” button is unavailable (Grey’d out) and also trying the “with Google” option is an invalid redirect.
Account creation enabled. Was disabled due to error in Wikimedia Oauth plugin. I’ve disabled that plugin and filed a bug. Creation should now work. Thanks!
Google Oauth was improperly setup, so a typo on the google side. Thanks for testing it; I’ll look into it soon. Update: Oauth app has been submitted for verification.
There’s no easy way to log out on my Android smart phone. No, there’s no logout in the hamburger icon. I can log out, by tapping my icon, tapping it again, choosing Preferences, then tapping the “Logout all” link. Is that it?
Yep, could use help with sorting it out. Also wondering why emojis also have a white background.
Added the ability to list Slack handles on your User page. This is automatically displaying as an option for all new users.
Patreon link removed from the header since it is now in the footer, to avoid mushing up interface on mobile devices with small screens. @Zach
Discord access may be broken. Please attempt to login with your Discord accounts and let me know if any issues @mark or @pyconaut Thanks!
nvm, I was able to login no problem after verifying my Discord account. The error was simply someone who failed verification.
User Card Directory added so user list is now useful and pretty looking! See it in action.
Forum will be upgraded to current release during window of 7/01 - 7/05. Testers wanted! Also, please edit this post to add any suggestions.
Planned Upgrade to Tests-Pass 2.6x for first week of July offers:
Tag groupings fixed on chat-integration @pyconaut for Slack.
IP address needed for whitelisting Grafana server @SuperQ
Babble plugin will be installed for real-time chat testing.
Akismet plugin will be installed for handling email spam. Shorten polling time for incoming emails down from hourly to every few minutes or similar.
Add accessibility@* email @Zach
Added firstname.lastname@example.org, which points to the ADA section of Discuss. It can be subscribed to, or emailed by anyone with new topics.
It would be useful to organize topics by accessibility tag as opposed to just a category.
Include other tags as well?
Should this list re-direct to a particular Slack Channel??
This is awesome!!
Just a couple of small accessibility requests for posting here:
A strikethrough text option (really helpful for doing edits without having to explain and retype a bunch of stuff)
A preview button next to reply (which would open in a link, instead of the window on the right, which doesn’t appear to show up in mobile).
This would be really helpful for doing corrections from voice recognition accessibility software, instead of the current “hit reply and then edit it to death” that I’ve been doing
