Awful 5.4, iOS 14.3

Occasionally when returning to control panel from a thread via the back arrow button, the thread i was just reading will have its title replaced with ďThe Something Awful ForumsĒ. This persists until I go to another thread and back out. I havenít seen it happen twice in a row yet. I didnít notice it until after the most recent app update.

Midjack posted:

More info on this one! It seems to consistently happen when the last post in the thread is by a user on my ignore list and I have clicked on the ignored post to read it, then return to the forum or bookmark list. The thread I was just reading will have the title changed.

Still more on this one, I hope I don't sound like I'm harping but I keep discovering more about it that hopefully helps you find the bug. The ignored user's post just has to be read anywhere on the page, not just the last post. Also, when going back the hyphen in the thread name did something weird. The first image is before reading the "SecFuck M/T v18.6 - cat5e doctrine "thread third from top:


Here it is displaying as "cat5e doctrine - The Something Awful Forums" after reading an ignored user's post and returning to the bookmarks.

Damn it, this always happens. I think I'm gonna score, and then I never score. It's not fair.

Since the subject of saving stuff came up, did the option to save images somehow get removed at some point? I know it was present in the past, and I had basically the same options as shown in this post from 2019, but for a while now itís been missing for me:



The "Save Image" or "Save to Photos" isn't anywhere on there, or in the Edit Actions button. Is there something in the settings (Be it for AwfulApp or the phone itself) I need to switch to get that option again? I'm using an iPhone 8 with the most recent iOS and app updates.

Heh, you responded while I was editing my post to include the quote of you answering the same question for someone else from a few years ago.

Anyway, I did some playing around and it was in the phone settings itself. Somehow, the Awful setting for photos had been changed to "Add Only", switching it back to "All Photos" brought the save option back, in case anyone else ever has the same issue.

I was able to reproduce the missing Save thing by going into ďScreen TimeĒ, Content and Privacy Restrictions, Photos and changing the setting for Awful in that list

Maybe try that?

Edit: never mind lol

I wonder if it's because we normally only request permissions when selecting an image to include in a post...

Nah, it does prompt for permission the first time you save images from posts. You're right tho, I don't see any explicit requests or checks for permission except for the Imgur stuff. We have a plist entry for it... Maybe that's enough?

I added a check in the Save Video thing I did earlier because I'm currently doing Noob101 training


I recently finished reading the project.log thread. Makes me sad I missed the heyday of development interest, but it was cool to see everything take shape. Spanky's throbbers and icons are defining and I've always admired them

Sounds like a improvement to me. Be sure to add variable veiny-ness so itís not just a static schlong. Gotta keep it fresh.

I still look at these icons every day and think of things I could potentially change but they're such small tweaks I'd need a good reason to commit to doing them. That said, thanks!

The main outstanding development for Awful in my view is still the way the menu overlays pop up. Rather than hovering in the bubbles they'd work much better in a bottom of screen list with icons. I can't code though so all I can offer is another nag post. I'd probs look at tweaking icons once they were in this new context too.

Also, if anyone ever has ideas for new Awful home screen icons I'd be happy to give em a go.

I need to look into using standard context menus, we'd probably have less jank that way

Oh interesting. I had to change a few things to get it to build and not crash when I entered settings. I did enable "Optimize interface for Mac" tho, so maybe that's why

Bug report

Mostly only seems to happen on fast threads.
1. Go to the last page of the thread, where a post quotes another post on the last page
2. Tap on the "xyz posted:" or subforum equivalent at the top of the quote

Expected: scroll to post or push another VC pre-scrolled to the post
Observed: if there has been a new post added to the current (last) page, the user will see the new posts instead of the desired one

Do you have "smart punctuation" enables in the keyboard settings? That'll convert " and ' into some fancier equivalents which just end up looking dumb, especially in yospos. I think it got so bad that the forums software or the app started filtering/converting them?

Dear diary, today I
became a captain.


I got auto-banned last week for posting a thread using a mod only tag.
Pretty loving dumb thing to do of me, I know.
Thankfully, Jeffrey took pity on me and un-banned me.

In my defense, when you post on the site, the left column always mentions the forbidden demon fruit tags.
The iOS app doesn't have a left column and I hosed up.
Or maybe it does have something similar and I didn't notice.

This has been the most traumatic experience of my life;

Thanks for reading.

Yeah the leper's colony still doesn't embed youtube videos or have working hyperlinks.


You're getting "post not found" because you don't have archives, I'm guessing.

It'll take a complete rewrite of the lepers colony to get those working. I keep waiting for someone to break the leper's colony on the site by embedding an entire webapp in a ban reason or something.

Here's an idea I just had, no idea of the implementation or if it's possible.

What if you could look through your awful image cache - like it'd present a grid of the jpegs and gifs (excluding avatars) stored on your device. I often think of an image I saw in the app that I want to share later but it's like finding a needle in a haystack. I was imagining an interface like in the messages app when you hit the info button on a contact.

pokeyman will have to answer because I'm too much of an idiot at Core Data to think of it as anything other than a ball of data, but I don't recall seeing images stored directly so my money's on it being a larger-ish feature. Not really any helpful, sorry, but maybe this will get someone's gears turning...
