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). Fixed 12/14 https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...d-comments-here.4245677/page-28#post-86097881
  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.

Good afternoon,

so I seem to be the first to report an issue: the ad banner at the bottom hides the watch/unwatch button.

Thanks.

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

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:

    In the app signatures (for me) were only visible in landscape mode. That's still the case, see attached screenshots, first one portrait mode, second in landscape mode.

    D'oh! That's easier than going through user profile. Thanks! That being said this seems a strange design choice because in landscape mode there is a much smaller horizontal slice of the page visible. It would make more sense to me to have the signature visible in portrait rather than landscape, and it would make even more sense to have been visible in both.

    Did I miss something or are the signatures gone intentionally? In the app.

    👆

    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! :)
