On 3/11/2021 at around 10am New York time, XDA will be upgrading our forum software to XenForo 2.2 which brings a bunch of new improvements, like a new thread preview tool, a Device Inventory tool to show off which phones you use, a most-thanked widget in every thread to easily spot the most important posts, plus a host of other new feature you can read about here. Not every feature of 2.2 will be available/active on XDA from day one, but we'll roll more things out soon as we settle in. :cool:

Please use this thread to post about bugs, issues, or overall comments. If reporting a bug or issue, be sure to tell us about your configuration (device, browser, OS) and the steps to reproduce the issue. Screenshots help!

In addition, later today we'll be updating the XDA app to work with 2.2. :cowboy:

Known Bugs/Regressions:
  1. Advanced forum user max title length is too short, truncating them (e.g. "Senior Recognized Developer / Recognized Contribut"). Fixed 06/18 https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...d-comments-here.4245677/page-16#post-85203961
  2. Long forum names are truncated (e.g. "Android Software and Hacking General [Developers O").
  3. Thanks/Likes counts are reduced for most users, sometimes dramatically, seemingly from Aug 29 - Dec 2; possibly related to posts reverting to older versions.
  4. Various old forum emojis aren't mapped to new unicode ones, and ones in old posts that do exist (e.g. :cowboy:) don't display.
  5. Broken redirects from old links for many threads/posts.
  6. Disabling Alert in Preferences forces Mobile App Push enabled, one should be able to disable both.
  7. "Unfurl"ed URL links to posts sometimes show a preview of the OP instead of the correct post (e.g. [URL unfurl="true"]https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/welcome-to-xda-2021.4197018/post-84073623[/URL]
    ==
    )
  8. Missing colored/underlined user names to denote advanced forum users (e.g. Moderators/Admins and Recognized Contributors/Themers/Developers).
  9. Posts containing only quotes and no new text shouldn't be allowed.
  10. Ability to subscribe to an entire forum is missing for some forums.
  11. XDA Wiki pages are missing.
  12. [SIGPIC][/SIGPIC] functionality is broken and pics lost.
  13. Shell scripts are detected and rejected as attachments, even if renamed as .txt files.
  14. Search "this category" option never shows any results when used.
  15. Recognized Developers can't moderate their own threads anymore.
  16. Missing/broken legacy devices in Device Inventory (e.g. Galaxy Nexus is listed when you search but fails when you attempt to add it).
  17. Missing setting to receive emails for mentions and/or quotes.
  18. Reaction Score doesn't match between profile and "All" under Reactions Received.
  19. DevDB secondary thread contributors have completely lost access to updating these threads.

Don't worry, for the over excited, Svetius has included the counselling and psychotherapy add-on to our shiny new XenForo 2.2 install.

Good! Because for a moment there I didn't know what to do with my life...

Oh the preview thingy replaces the editing for a bit! Okay, okay...

Edit: the replace icon is missing.

Looks good! New Top Liked Posts is excellent. :D

Woot! Shell scripts can be uploaded again. 🤓

I'll move my Bugs and Requests lists over here if a moderator can give me a couple posts following @svetius' again?

Edit: Since @sd_shadow has done a nice New Features post at #2 now, please add my two after that. 👍

Search this thread doesn't seem to be working.
The new one nor old.
Can someone else test?
Yep can confirm. Typing in the Search bar slowly moves the page up in Chrome (Windows desktop) as though I'm pressing the up arrow or something, and then the search of this thread for the word "excellent" shows no results.

Weird, I don't see that icon at all. The preview doesn't work for me or something. Will look into it.

Yeah seems like we need to kick off a re-index. I've done that and our search server is running a re-index.

It is almost impossible to tell which page is being displayed.

XDA Classic theme in browser (Naked Browser) on Android 9 tablet.

Before today, it was easy, so I'm going to guess that it used to mark the current page (in the list showing some page numbers at the top and bottom of the page) using inverse-video.

I tried the other themes. None uses inverse-video.

Device inventory Bugs

MikeChannon said:
The Google phone naming is a difficult one and I'm not sure we'd please everyone as the poularity and distribution of the phones varies as much as the accepted name in various locations. The Samsung Galaxy Nexus for example is known as :
Samsung Google Galaxy Nexus I9250
Samsung Google Nexus 3
Samsung Galaxy X

All of those are official names and all are valid. At the times we added them we'd use the most recognizable, best known name.

I had thought that some of those older phones are missing because they are contained in our "Legacy and Low Activity" category forum. However, on checking I don't think that explains why some devices are missing because many in "Legacy and Low Activity" DO appear on the list.:confused:

    What I have rounded in orange-dotted is something that was triggering emails at the time of vBulletin and that bothers me. I will see if I send a request about this to svetius. but I guess we should.

    That definitely bothers me too. You are correct to request it.
    And thanks for the perfect explanation.

    You are right, there is no "click to hide" when a quote has been expanded. Only way is to refresh the page to re-hide the quote (not handy I admit).

    You make good points about bad habits.

    @MikeChannon or @the_scotsman , is there a way to configure this on XF? I mean to enable the possibility to un-expand a long quote that has been expanded using the "click to expand" button?

    We have a fix for this that allows you "click to expand" then "click to collapse" that will be live within the next day or two.

    I have reported this before and excuse me for doing it again.
    I don't use the app. I want to get emails only when quoted or mentioned. This is imperative for a commutation on sites such as this one.
    It has been requested again and very recently by us Mods to the xda owners, they said building a XenForo add-on would be needed since it's not a feature present natively on XenForo, they will look into it.

    Do you think it is possible for me to get an e-mail when I am quoted in this thread, without getting an e-mail when I am quoted in any other thread?
    Hi J.Michael,

    I think the answer to your question is no (see the flowchart here below at the end of my post). I assume you should receive emails for quotes and mention even if you decided to not receive emails for a particular thread.
    The new options for quotes and mentions in your account preferences:

    Email options in account preference.jpg

    ...are not linked with the option of email settings per thread:
    Email option per thread.jpg

    Here are my observations so far in a flowchart. It's not an official algo, it's been done by me from my understandings, so please don't take this as necesarily correct. If you see issues in here, please tell me:

    Algo.jpg

    What I have rounded in orange-dotted is something that was triggering emails at the time of vBulletin and that bothers me. I will see if I send a request about this to svetius. but I guess we should.

    Hell yeah Flo! I freaking loved labs! Fast, easy, battery friendly, and usually worked just fine! 👍👍😁
    Great, "Retired XDA Labs Contributor" added to my signature coz' you know 50 char limit for user title... :D
    BTW everyone misses XDA Labs but it was full of issues, remember the wall of issues? And lots of people complained about annoying bugs or limitations at that time :D
    It was a great app though and I was soooo proud of being an active and official contributor there!

    Is a quote of the OP now considered OK?

    I have always reported when people quote the OP, but recently got rejected as it was not explicitly violating the rules.
    Unless I'm mistaken, I believe I left my name is the rejection notification. If we weren't limited in them I could have explained more in detail but I rejected your report for the reasons provided by @woodman above.
    During vB times (and despite not violating any rule) I tended to place such a quote in hide-tags but this is no longer necessary on XF.

    👆

    Truncated special titles appear to be getting fixed today! 🙌
    Yay, not that I want to send me flowers but I send flowers to myself still 😜, there were 66 accounts to manually edit and then inform members about this change. Yea there were not other solutions than doing it manually.... 😭

    I'm happy to have contributed to this and make disappear the truncated tiles. We have 50 char maximum allowed for it so it was not easy to find a good and consistent compromise for everyone and every case.

    BTW, no one forced me, I was fine to volunteer for this task.

    @svetius @bitpushr @MikeChannon @the_scotsman @Audentio

    Can you please add .tar.gz, .tgz, .tar.xz, .txz, etc. to the accepted attachment extension list? I'm trying to upload AIK-Linux v3.8 here and this is a bit of an annoying last minute snag. :p

    Please also look into allowing uploading simple shell scripts again. These used to be allowed at least when renamed to .sh.txt but currently they still get detected and blocked.

    This is a developers and power users forum, you would think these things would already be allowed! :)
    (y)I have added those extenstions.
