Dunno if it was the server or the app but I just tried to make a post and it said that the image upload failed.

I was not trying to attach an image, and it was making the post properly each time.

Yeah, I keep forgetting to bring this up. The smilie menu is horrific on my iPad. Nearly every smilie is duplicated and they don't seem to be in any kind of order, so finding a specific one takes forever. A search function would be amazing.

Edit: Also, an example "super moderator" is VideoGames. Hopefully that example will help nailing down whatever needs to be done to show stars next to their usernames. Wouldn't want someone to tick one off just because they mistakenly thought a supermod was just a normal poster.

It sometimes says that for me if I break the forum limitation of one post or fewer per ten seconds. The failure to post has to do with the forums themselves; the app just gives the wrong error message. I would imagine it might also give an incorrect error if you run afoul of the forums software in other ways as well.

Edit: I see that I misread your post and that your posts are actually being accepted. I still wouldn't be surprised if the issue is with the forums themselves, at least originally. Maybe the app has gotten stuck in a loop with that error message?

It was the servers taking a poo poo last night.

I was on the web version and it was giving me errors when trying to post so Iím guessing the app didnít know how to process the error correctly.

In video-heavy threads like the ďCanadians, we need to talkĒ one in GBS, people who post youtube videos with the
code:

code will inline the video like itís supposed to, but if they post it with
code:
[url]http://www.youtube.com/video=?Hya4783dh[/url]
the entire post is just a giant emptypost. I assume it parses correctly in a browser or there wouldnít be so many broken posts, but itís not working for me in the app here.

Iím on an iPhone7 13.3 jailbroken with checkra1n and think it might be a host/adblocker issue, but maybe worth mentioning here.

Awful app doesn't have any say in that, it just asks the system to open a twitter link and iOS decides whether that means the app or the browser. It depends on your recent activity with the app somehow but I'm not sure how to get it to do what you want.

Ahh, well that's good to know at least. Means it can probably be trained based on whether I've used the Twitter app versus website most recently or something, so I won't blame it on Awful.

It used to be that whenever you'd jump from one app to another via a URL, you'd see a right arrow in the status bar that you could tap to go to Safari and it would remember that preference, and that if you used that Open in App banner at the top of certain websites, it'd remember that as well, but I haven't seen either of those in a long time.

I can find more examples if youíd like. Itís a little odd, because the /video type=youtube/ code will inline a video with no issue at all (leading me to think itís not a host blocker issue as I had previously suspected), but posting the youtube link between /url/ boxes loads a big empty post. Video-heavy threads are about half empty for me as a result, depending on how the poster chose to code it.

Edit:

Rebooting out of jailbreak reveals that itís a jailbreak thing on my end, sorry for wasting your time! Are you aware of any difference between how one embed method vs the other would present itself? Iíll have to open my hosts file and remove a line or two but Iím clueless as to why one embed method makes it through while the other is blocked.

I think I found a bug:

1. Go to a megathread.
2. Click on some reasonably active poster's av and then "Their posts". They must have more than 1 page's worth.
3. In the page selector, jump to last page. It works even if they only have 1 page worth of posts in the thread.

You now get taken to the last page of the thread, not the last page of their posts. The page count shows 0/N where N is the number of pages in the thread. Additionally, you can't click on Their Posts again on this page.

I first saw this in a large thread, but in testing it for this write up I can reproduce it everywhere.

No idea, unfortunately. I'll make a note to improve that error message, though it might not help much depending on what's going wrong. I did mess with login a little bit in the latest version of Awful (4.3), so you could try it again, but I don't have high hopes.

Fun fact (not that it matters, as Awful should just do the right thing): what's happening here is that Awful adds goto=lastpost and the Forums completely ignores the userid parameter on the thread URL.

Apologies if itís been mentioned (it probably has), I didnít read back in the thread. But with dark mode on both iOS and the app, I get a split second flash of white when opening the app if itís starting fresh (ie, I swiped it away in the app switcher or it got flushed naturally). Is there any way to prevent that?

This is funny because the forums actually do the right thing - if you edit the html to enable the preview button on an empty post and click it, it pops up a box that says "Please complete the message field, shithead." Learned something today.
