I was editing my '1.7 datatags thread' located in the Mapping and Modding tutorials section, and the thread appeared to save correctly (or, at least, as correctly as threads do since Cobalt - there were noticeable missing tags as usual in my older threads...), but when I attempted to edit again to remove broken tags I was redirected to the Mapping and Modding tutorials section instead, as if the thread had been removed. I tried to go back to the thread, but each time would be redirected...what's going on? (EDIT: forgot to mention the thread is no longer listed in Threads on my profile, either)
It's noteworthy that I'd been unable to even edit the thread prior, stating the thread was too long (when it had previously been fine before Cobalt), an issue Citricsquid mentioned he needed to fix in a different thread here. I'm unsure if Citricsquid confirmed the issue there had been resolved, so it may be related, I'm unsure.
I have to say I honestly despise this 'Cobalt' version of the forum, there's so many issues I'm having to workaround constantly with larger threads I have; the formatting is a mess, and I fear many issues could take many months to resolve - I'm afraid to edit some of my threads in case something like this happens now!
Thanks, sorry for ranting a bit but the formatting has been driving me potty, especially for that particular thread - if I edit using the BBCode editor it's incredibly slow to edit now (typing is delayed, presumably due to the amount of text, but it's not an issue I've had before Cobalt).
I can understand that the forum admins will be working on these issues as best as they can, but for the time being it's giving me such a headache to even make basic edits to threads like these, so I'll just have to leave the thread in a formatting mess until I can edit it more freely I guess
Yeah we definitely understand the frustration. The editor on the old forum had a huge number of problems (for example it would routinely break posts completely) but people were used to it and knew how to work around the "quirks". We had hoped that the new editor would resolve these problems -- and in testing it did resolve a large number -- unfortunately we didn't do the testing needed to find problems like the ones you're experiencing, which is entirely our fault and something we've learned from! The new new editor should resolve the majority of issues, but this time we're going to do a lot of testing to ensure everything works as you'd expect.
