On my side, using XDA app and Chrome browser on the phone.
All the latest versions as of today (Chrome 92.0.4515.115-451511533, Webview 92.0.4515.115-451511534, Trichrome lib 92.0.4515.115-451511534)

Sorry but I have no intensions to install any special ROM, browser or anything to obtain the XDA Forum functionalities fully working

Also, it's already passed 7 or 8 months since we switched to this new Forum - for particular things like badges (to properly work with up-to-date numbers), I frankly don't count on them anymore

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 understand the need to put some ads on the page. However,
the advertisements are all over the login page and pretty sloppy
Also, I bet you didn't notice this (wink).......... The ads cause "Focus" to be drawn off of the Password Textbox. LOLOLOLOL! While I'm trying to type in my password, when your ad "refreshes", it's almost like.... the ad is trying to Click It's Self!

For example: I press SHIFT because I plan to make an upper case character. When the focus is lost from the password textbox, the SHIFT (that i previously pressed) will un-press it's self. Or another example: if I need to put an Underscore into my password, I'm going to have to navigate to it with my Gboard. However, attempting to navigate to Gboard's Special Characters, the Textbox will Lose Focus and Gboard goes back to the default keypad (i wasn't fast enough at pressing the underscore key).

I'm just going to flat out say what this feels like. Don't get mad at me, I'm not the one who didn't code this correctly and now it's public for everybody to see. But what seems to be happening is that these ads are to clicking themselves, otherwise I can't think of a reason that when the ad refreshes to a new one, cursor focus is drawn off the password textbox.
I assume that however this web behavior became coded into your website.... was 100% unintentional and an accident.

Now honestly I don't care if that is going on, it doesn't affect me besides the difficulty logging in. And maybe you should build a Feedback system for people to report this type of thing without needing to make a forum post about it

It's fixed on XDA-Dark (default theme) and will be good once caches clear
But, if the "collapse" button is at the end, you have to scroll through the whole, horrible, quote to re-collapse it.

The "Spoiler" button sits ahead/above the content, and toggles between "show" and "hide". I thought the intent was to provide the same control over the display of a quote.

Can you make the entire quote sensitive to a tap so I don't have to scroll to the beginning or end to find the "collapse" button?
(Of course then I'll complain about not being able to mark text to copy/paste elsewhere.)

Makes sense 😁
Semi-joke, workaround: search for "collapse" or "click to collapse" words on the current page and you will quickly find the right location: "click to collapse" button 😜

I haven't tested this in anger (ie real life situation, although anger for people quoting the OP isnt that far off....)

However, It is the case where people "catch me off guard" and I go to check their quote in case it has some extra info that makes their question clearer, and its usually before scrolling I can tell its the OP / irrelevant, so would wish to collapse it before I scroll.

    This happens with the XDA app: When using the XDA app to reply/edit post and I tap the three dot menu that displays the emojis icon the emoji icon appears but it is greyed out. If I tap the emoji icon no emojis are displayed. Who can fix this problem?
    For me it does work ... second edit: There seems to be an issue. Now I see a second answer/reply text when clicking on the Emoji icon (but no Emojis).

    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.

    👆

    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.
