i updated the links section on a page i adopted, and the entire set of links are displaying twice:

http://www.summitpost.org/mount-williamson/152023

it's happening on my work IE browser and my home FF browser.

i go into edit mode, but i don't see anything to fix / delete in that section.

I've paid a little more attention to what's happening with <br> tags.
Now, I wouldn't like it very much, but I could see there might be a reason why <br> tags would be removed when switching from HTML to WYSIWYG mode. However, even if I work in HTML mode and submit an edited page without switching to WYSIWYG mode, some <br> tags are removed.

For the record, while I think the editor could improve its handling of <br> tags, if I speak only for myself, I can work around it. I just add a clear attribute to the <br> tag. Done that quite a few times already. However, I believe that the biggest problem lies with all the pages that were created before the new editor: when someone edits such a page, and, without the editor noticing it, <br> tags are removed in various places, including those where nothing should be changed, the new page may look awkward. Yet, with a small change, the editor will probably only check if the change itself looks good - while in the mean time somewhere else in the page something's gone wrong!

Hi,
I´m trying to create a new Image, filling in all the fields, and selecting a file (9 Mb) from my computer, but when I press the "Submit Changes" button the path of my file in the field "File" desappears and the picture is not uploaded. No error messages appear.

The link to the page I´m creating is: http://www.summitpost.org/new_edit_obje ... _id=865263

Browser: Internet Explorer 9.0.19
OS: Windows 7

Thank you for your support

I remember hearing many years ago that it is a 8MB limit. Let me know if you need any advise on resizing, I'm able to resize a 100+ photos in speedy time with Picasa.

Frankly, I believe that it's bad idea to upload lots of pictures to SP in high resolution, because unless those viewing it have a fast internet connection, downloading it just takes too long. Only if there is something special to see do I find it useful. To give a few examples, this includes labelled panoramas and really detailed pictures of a mountain that clarify one or more routes. Those, I believe, really add value to SP.

Mind you, at home my connection is fast so I have no trouble with big images. However, when I'm traveling and use whatever internet access I happen to come across, it is often too slow to look at big images - and so I simply abort the download when it takes to long. And when I use the Slideshow viewer, for example to have a look at what's new or browse the best images in the last week, big pictures tend to be skipped and I don't get to see them.
So, if you want me to look at the big version of your image, I suggest resizing it to something manageable, and not post everything in, say, 4000 by 3000.

I go with 1200px, diagrams and panoramas get a bigger resolution of course.

Don't know if it's a bug or my lack of computer skills but I'm having some difficulty posting a TH page. I've tried using the new and old editor with similar results.
This pops up when I hit the submit button:

replace_object() INSERT INTO `objects` SET `object_id`=NULL,`type_id`=13,`last_edit`=NOW(),`creation`=NOW(),`last_edit_user_id`='23086',`created_user_id`='23086',`show_toc`='Yes',`construction`='No',`object_name`='Rainbow LakesTH',`query_name`='Rainbow LakesTH',`continent`='North America',`country`='United States',`state_province`='Colorado',`province`=NULL,`county`='Jackson',`latitude`='40.6584',`longitude`='-106.58006',`seasons`='Summer',`elevation`='8,750',`object_body_ft`='
Add Heading here

External Links

\n',`is_primary_photo_user_set`=0 ON DUPLICATE KEY UPDATE `object_id`=NULL,`type_id`=13,`last_edit`=NOW(),`creation`=NOW(),`last_edit_user_id`='23086',`created_user_id`='23086',`show_toc`='Yes',`construction`='No',`object_name`='Rainbow LakesTH',`query_name`='Rainbow LakesTH',`continent`='North America',`country`='United States',`state_province`='Colorado',`province`=NULL,`county`='Jackson',`latitude`='40.6584',`longitude`='-106.58006',`seasons`='Summer',`elevation`='8,750',`object_body_ft`='

\n',`is_primary_photo_user_set`=0 failed: DB Error: unknown error

Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks!

I got the same error when testing. So I take it this was not resolved yet.

I submitted a new page as a test and got the following code:

Code: Select all
replace_object() INSERT INTO `objects` SET `last_edit`=NOW(),`last_edit_user_id`='67750',`show_toc`='Yes',`construction`='No',`object_name`='lazy peak',`query_name`='lazy',`continent`='North America',`country`='United States',`province`=NULL,`state_province`='Arkansas',`county`=NULL,`latitude`=NULL,`longitude`=NULL,`activities`='Mountaineering',`seasons`='Summer',`elevation`='4523',`primary_photo`='711817.jpg',`object_body_ft`='It ain\'t easy being cheezy.\n',`object_id`='877638',`type_id`='1',`creation`='2013-11-27 15:07:50',`created_user_id`='67750',`is_primary_photo_user_set`=1 ON DUPLICATE KEY UPDATE `last_edit`=NOW(),`last_edit_user_id`='67750',`show_toc`='Yes',`construction`='No',`object_name`='lazy peak',`query_name`='lazy',`continent`='North America',`country`='United States',`province`=NULL,`state_province`='Arkansas',`county`=NULL,`latitude`=NULL,`longitude`=NULL,`activities`='Mountaineering',`seasons`='Summer',`elevation`='4,523',`primary_photo`='711817.jpg',`object_body_ft`='It ain\'t easy being cheezy.\n',`object_id`='877638',`type_id`='1',`creation`='2013-11-27 15:07:50',`created_user_id`='67750',`is_primary_photo_user_set`=1 failed: DB Error: unknown error


I also tested with an already existing page and got less sql code, but still some. :? So either the comma isn't being parsed out or there is some other issue here.

Yeay! The comma issue is no more. For fun I decided to test it with a & symbol which still gives tons of SQL code. Not a big deal, but is it possible to have it parse out all characters except numerical ones?

Hello,
I just created a page, and although "under construction" is set to "NO", it always shows "this page is under construction"!!!!
My page is under mountains&rocks and the name of the page is "koloon bastak (Daryook) rock glacier". Is this a bug?
Thanks,
Kamran
