External version: 2.46
Native version: 2.13

After over three months worth of coding power and countless hours of rewriting code almost entirely from the ground up, it is an honor for me to present you guys with Ponychan X version 2. Its over 6000 lines long, yet faster than ever, free from any unnecessary frameworks. This will also serve as the support thread for the nightly builds that require installation, as they work their way into neutral builds to be updated to the site itself.

1) Like before, install a GM-based extension, if don't already have one, for your browser.
Chrome []Firefox []SeaMonkey []Opera []Safari []

2) Install Ponychan X []

It is imperative that you use one of the above GM clients to ensure that you receive the latest version. The previous updater didn't always update because of issues with browsers abiding to same-origin policy. I'll go into detail about what's new on it below and add a changelog as this makes ongoing progress.

Also, I'd like to thank and give a little shoutout to TGSB for being my personal firefox bug reporter here. (I'm more of a webkit person myself so I needed some evaluation with cross-browser engine compatibility).

Version 2.4
• NSFW checkboxes are stripped, now that the feature is obsolete.
• Balanced brackets in the custom css box.
• You can drop .mp3, .ogg, and .swf files directly in the QR now.
• .swf's are now expandable in-thread.

Version 2.3
• Duplicate image detection for /pic/
• Shortened filenames in gallery mode
• Tooltips in settings
• Settings save without refresh.

Version 2.2
• Introduces "Gallery mode" for /pic/ threads
• Filter formula changed. Names are still case sensitive but only require a partition of that filtered name now.
• Workaround for tampermonkey bug
• Optional tab title flip

Version 2.1
• Brings firefox browser casing style
• Introduces support for scriptish and likely support for safari (apparently there was just a stuck infinite loop)
• Announcer box for important notices
• Filter shortcut in the menu entry
• You can now filter posts by filename

So, the backstory:

Ever since I first started working on where milky left off with Ponychan X, there was always the concern of whether or not the script is efficient enough, or if we simply have too much attention on it. Though I was inexperienced with javascript when I started, I was at least capable of finding out what had to be done to make it faster. My first major change to that was when I made the main function select all of the valid reflinks first, then sending that data to other functions so they wouldn't have to be reselected. As I got a deeper understanding of it, the greater and more drastic the changes. You could probably load a thread with 1000 posts in version 1.5 without any problems. But then it all ended in one overarching concern, of whether or not the jquery library was worth using here. Basically, using jQuery is frowned upon if the vast majority of the workload is manipulating html on the page, especially when its organized in massive recursive loops. I mean, sure, when you're using jQuery for simple DOM structures, the performance changes won't be noticeable. However, when you're selecting hundreds of elements in organized loops, then its time to consider finding ways to optimize performance, and pX couldn't fit the bill any worse. But finally upon reading some articles regarding web designers' views on using jQuery properly, including the article here (I swear to god if Ion-Sturm was reincarnated as a web designer, that would be him - the author of that article), I finally decided, damn it, let's just get this over with.

It was a gradual six week long process, which along the way yielded the most bizarre results until all the pieces finally came back together in the end. And here we are, over 6000 lines later, with what is essentially a complete rewrite of the original. Well, now let's put its performance to the test with some side-by-side comparisons.

So here we got the javascript profiler for the current version of chromium-based Opera, which uses Google's V8 javascript engine. No extensions are installed other than Violent monkey and adblock, but I have adblock disabled. Let's load an uncached version of /oat/'s board index. In comparison to pX 1.5, it runs at a healthy 100 ms faster.

Yeah, that's nice and everything, but what's the point? Because either way, the overall browser workload of loading the page (like what, 1.5 to 2 seconds? Or in MLPchan's case, maybe a half a second?) makes that 100ms negligible.

But the whole javascript overhaul matters in the long run. Now let's do a stress test with a number of threads across Ponychan. I used /p/ad from two nights ago for reference here, which at the time, had 485 posts in it.

And shown here is a "flame chart" of not just the javascript runtime, but everything being executed on the page. If that comparison doesn't tell you enough, the profiler is telling me that it took 10.08 seconds for native pX to execute, which greatly differs from the mere 677.5 milliseconds of pX2 runtime.

I'm not going to bother doing further tests here to prove it when you can do just that on the comfort of your own time. But I will tell you it gets exponentially more efficient as the threads get larger. So if you want to open up one of those 3000 post "How are you" threads on /gala/, by all means go right ahead.

Here's a few more from /arch/ where we know the post numbers aren't going to change, and don't have to process client rectangles to see if the browser has hovered over them yet.
old pX - 12.16s script only, 21s total
new pX - 834ms script only, 8.5s total
old pX - 7.71s script, 11.2s total
new pX - 803 ms script, 5.5s total
old pX - 10.11s script, 16.1s total
new pX - 692.3ms script, 5.9s total

Then outside /arch/, it just gets a little ridiculous.
old pX - 2.4 minutes script, 2.5 minutes total
new pX - 3.04 seconds script, 21 seconds total
>> No. 155310 ID: af273c
So, here's what you'll find new about 2.0:

• In order to resolve one existing site-end issue and to make potential browsing easier (if or when the script would be made native) I modified a few things on the navbar. The board list, for example, can now stretch or squeeze to whatever your window size may be, without overflowing behind the main dropdowns. The thread refresher is now moved to the top left of the page.

• Speaking of which, the thread updater has been optimized to be more bandwidth-lightweight. And it goes about this by taking three measures -
1) by only performing a HEAD request rather than a GET request to check if the html file was modified since the previous update. Only when the dates fail to match will a GET request run.
2) by utilizing a timer with a cooldown much similar to the one on 4chan X
3) only the +50 link requests are fetched, unless, of course the thread has less than 50 replies. And why should this be a concern of us, you may ask? Because...

• pX2 brings ajax fetching to Ponychan for the very first time. I wrote the algorithm for this ajax fetcher entirely from scratch so it might not be perfect yet, but it's getting better. You'll see improvements over time as I find better solutions to optimize this function.

• In the new theme dropdown, you will find a new option to change fonts, for anyone that isn't really a fan of that default Times New Roman font here, feel free to choose a different font that may or may not suit you better.
>> No. 155311 ID: af273c
File 139752606070.png - (281.26KB , 944x1071 , spoiler-covers.png )

Then in the pX settings dialog, you'll find a few new things under the new "Style" tab.

• Customize spoiler/nsfw image covers
• Customize the text that appears on each backlink and each menu head
• Write your own style. The script runs on document-start so, unless I missed something, there should be no flashing of unstyled content.
>> No. 155312 ID: af273c
File 139752613192.png - (154.68KB , 801x636 , post-menu.png )

Regarding the mini-menu dropdowns...
• I decided to completely rewrite them from scratch. As a result, they can now adapt to your theme, and some options in the menu body are divided into sub-dropdowns to save space
• There's a few new algoritms that are used to find the direct source of the image. I've noticed that two of the most often used filenames here that don't come from images saved from Ponychan are either from Derpibooru or deviantArt. If that is the case with the post you clicked on, it will give you a link to the source, like seen in the image. I'm not sure how useful this feature will be to you guys, but nonetheless, it's there.
• Links to a new search engine in the catalog that I like to call the Deep Search. It puts the name in the field for you. But what does the deep search do?
>> No. 155313 ID: af273c
File 139752620660.png - (1.02MB , 927x3233 , deep-search.png )

• Catalog deep search
So here's what the catalog deep search looks like. This search engine performs ajax fetching every 1.5 or so seconds, not to dig up the threads, but rather, the thread expanders, to match your search query. So it can match OPs and replies. And don't worry, it's not going to hog up server bandwidth, as the longer you have it running, the longer the time intervals between ajax requests.

I'm gonna go right ahead and demonstrate it by picking on Starshine, and as you can see in the screencap, you can choose when you want the deep search to stop running if you don't feel like waiting the amount of time it takes to crawl the board at its entirety. Now unfortunately, when you search by name, you can't crawl the contents of the OP because they don't appear in the catalog index. But if you don't remember what you found that post in, you can always hit the view button presented in the posts returned in the search results.

However, if all you want is to organize your threads by topic, then maybe you'll like what's been done with the tags found in /art/, /rp/, /ooc/, /fic/, and /dis/.
>> No. 155314 ID: af273c
File 139752632194.png - (135.46KB , 926x1035 , tag-tabbing-system.png )

So, what is the implied action of clicking a hashtag on any other site? Doesn't it usually redirect you to a list of filtered content based on the tag you clicked on? Is there a single site out there that chooses not to follow this implied behavior?

That's the one aspect that I found peculiar about Ponychan's tagging system. I mean sure, they do a good job at making it clear what the topic is going to be, and it declares the rules captained by the OP, that of which violating them could even result in mod intervention (i.e. invading a closed /rp/ thread), that give the tags a purpose a little beyond arbitrary, but aren't tags meant to be organized?

• What you'll find in tag-enabled boards is a systematic tag tabber, where you can make it display threads based on the tag that you've chosen, and it will remember the tag you've selected. So, if you're only on /fic/ for the reviewer threads, or if you're only on /art/ for the galleries, this option might be right in line with your tastes. Let the paginator fill the void for hidden threads.
• You can also organize threads by sub-tags, like "Canon: Donut Bar", for example.
• In case you want to take further action to sort out threads, the filter system can now filter out threads based on what's in the OP.

...and that's all I got! If you guys are getting any issues or have any questions, leave them here, and I'll get to them whenever possible.

☑ Fix Safari Ninjakit/Firefox Scriptish page lock-up
☑ Set a timeout in the thread updater to ensure the user gets the update with their post in it.
☑ Investigate QR bug where the contents don't clear entirely
☑ Write a filter shortcut in the menu
? Patch scroll position error, likely an OS specific bug (waiting for response)
☑ Modify cookies to disable native pX
☑ Fix intrusive footer

First of all great job this is obviously a ton of time and work.

I have a question though: why use jQuery at all when the base Kusaba library is prototype? Loading two heavy JavaScript libraries vs one is pretty heavy in itself. I always feel that was a mistake of ponyupz as well as ponychanx. My original ponyup used the libraries on site... and without lightbox which takes up 870 some lines, ponyup was only like 576 lines. I can tell you did all the "proper" things for javascript programming and it is a well written piece of code and I very much commend you for it. Ponyup is way behind in features vs this and I have had no intent of writing on that for years so I'm glad people picked up the torch and ran with it. I often feel there's a lot of bloat in most programming though and if you decide to take it further, perhaps getting it into less lines of code (as well as less overall items ran which you could run with a profiler for example). Anyway that's my only criticisms you did a great job.

i just found a little bug, it was only happening on one thread and i don't know why.

i was on the front page of /oat/ and i had moused over a reply link to a post that was in a thread and as soon as the (loading...) had finished, it whited out my screen
it wouldn't go away the whole page only showed white.
it was only happening on two links from one post, no where else that i've seen

it says i'm using firefox 28.0
the only thingies i have on it are greasemonkey and ponii-chan x

one more thing, i'm not sure if this is a bug but, whenever the autorefresh finishes it sets the refresh time to double the original time you had it at

Ehh, probably not a bug. I can imagine it being programmed that way so that it updates a little slower every time it detects no new posts.

Oh hey Arcs, and thanks for the feedback. I wasn't initially the one who started working with jQuery at first - that was actually how milky originally wrote it, but despite how easy it is to work with, yeah, there are better ways to keep the global namespace uncrowded. Though he did a tremendous amount of work for the six months that he worked on pX and MLPchan's inline extension simultaneously, and we wouldn't be anywhere near this far without him, so I hold a lot of respect for the guy.

Also, there's actually a good reason why I didn't use any of the site's existing libraries. It was either a choice between making the script embedded on the page's head inside a crowded namespace alongside the two site libraries or to reload the library inside Greasemonkey's empty namespace. So I didn't feel that either solution would be ideal so I just decided to go full vanilla. Besides, other scripts like 4chan X which are now over 12,000 lines long and still run multiple times faster than pX.

I think I just found a solution for this, but before, it didn't unbind the event listeners for those links until the page loaded. Now they unbind immediately. But I'll be keeping my eye on it.
Thank you for screencapping your settings when you reported this, because it wouldn't have been fixed anywhere near as fast without it. Because it was apparently a typo somewhere in the manual paginator and actually didn't involve the spoilers at all. It's fixed now though.
I've never seen this happen with the reply fetcher but I've seen it happen with the paginator. I'm going to place my bet that there were mod shenanigans in that thread, and somewhere in that thread is a document.write function in it. Either way, I think I fixed it. If it's still giving you problems, just let me know.
That's actually the cooldown you're seeing. Don't worry, it's just a safety measure to keep the servers from groaning, now that replies can be fetched from outside the page you're on.

Unless your connection is terrible or your uploading a pretty big picture, the whole notion of cancelling I'm pretty sure is superfluous, as it takes less than a second for the request to be made, and at that point there's nothing the client can do.

Which version of Safari are you using? I tested it on version 5.1.7 and got it to work, so I assumed it would be backwards compatible from there onward. (I'm posting this from Safari right now actually)

It's fine. I think I have an idea on what the issue might be.

No, everything looks like a proper installation from what you're showing. It probably has to do with the fact that the GM based extension is so outdated. I guess, if you can, just try a different browser until I find a working extension.

This is super awesome!

But I think I found a bug?
When I have the catalog page open in another tab, trying to go to the front page of any board just takes me to the catalog for it.
>> No. 155698 ID: af273c

It was intentional actually, though I may make the catalog redirect an option in 2.1. The purpose of the redirect is to put emphasis on the fact that the catalog serves an equivalent use as the board index but is simply a different way to view the threads.

Minor bug, easily fixable by scrolling up, but I think I'll finally mention it: even though I have the 'scroll on new post' option disabled, it does just that.
That prevents a +1 in the thread's tab and I don't know what's going on in it until I check manually.
And like I said, fixable by scrolling up, so it only happens when I'm at the bottom of the page.

What version of firefox are you using, by the way? Reason why I'm asking is because I tried replicating the bug on firefox with those same settings and I can't get either one of those bugs. In fact, there's a special casing where if the page is hidden, the notifier in the title appears regardless of where you're scrolled. But the object it uses to get this is so new that the IDE I use doesn't even recognize it.

I found that this issue persists on scriptish, so maybe if I can get scriptish support working, it may work on ninjakit.

Ah, so it is the newest version. Well in that case, maybe I'll opt out of what I've been using (document.hasFocus()), and replace it with a more cross-browser compatible one. It'll have to wait until tomorrow though unfortunately because I have to leave for work right now.

As soon as I installed the new version, the message fields at the top of the page disappeared. The only way for me to get them back was to enable quick reply, which I don't really care for because it takes up a part of the screen and it feels kind of in the way (though maybe I just need to get used to it, but grrrrr change I don't like it).
Also, it was giving me two "toggle posts form" options, as well as two quick reply boxes.

Yeah, the way the kusaba X template handles the name elements is a little screwy. Sometimes there will be a space in there, sometimes there will be an empty name element in there, sometimes there won't be. But don't worry, I'm putting a shortcut in the menu for 2.1 which is far easier to work with than typing names in manually.

He actually did look it over back when I was at version 1.54 and tried getting a site version running in response to the email I sent him and showed me the script minified and ready to go /chan/lib/javascript/ponychan_x_1.54.js, then it failed to execute and promptly reverted the edit back to the old native build, told me what happened and I sent him back what I believed was a solution to the error ("var j=$.noConflict();" should be "var j=jQuery.noConflict();"). But by the next day I was already at version 1.55 that included the paginated thread hiders, which would have meant for him starting the process all over with the new version. I guess he couldn't keep up.
>> No. 155748 ID: af273c
Hey guys, I found proper solutions to some of the more recent bugs. As a result, I have confirmed support for Scriptish, and Safari doesn't seem to be giving me any problems anymore either. Apparently, the main menu dropdown buttons on the top right were moving around for some odd reason in firefox and safari, and would be doing so literally right when the new dropdowns were implemented, forcing the script in an infinite loop. I'm going to bet that NinjaKit is a heavily modified fork of the Scriptish engine. It's been fixed now, and I'm almost entirely sure that Safari support has returned.

Also, to the person who was seeking support for Seamonkey, I did a little research and some people have said they had luck with this modified version of Greasemonkey 1.15 so perhaps you might see some positive results here. If you do, please let me know and I'll put a note of it on the OP.

Disregard what I said in the second paragraph there. GM support for SeaMonkey may no longer exist, but I do have confirmed support for one of the previous versions of Scriptish for that browser that I just now linked in the OP.

Oh, I know what you're talking about. I've got that a couple of times when debugging the edit button. Every once in a while, the server with the edit API kind of goes into a timeout and makes the contents inaccessible...or something along those lines. As far as I could notice, these appear to be backend issues.

It might be possible. I'll put that on the checklist and see what my options are about that idea.

>would there be a way to update the pX you can toggle on the site itself?
It's a pity that things don't get done around here on a whim like that, because I'm not the one in the decisionmaking position to make site-end changes. That would be something for the admins to handle. Though until then, I can probably get the script to modify your cookies to turn native pX off on it's own.

Ah, that thing again, didn't know that bug persisted on firefox. Alright, standby for a fix, and thanks for letting me know about that.

Ah, and here it comes. You guys deserve an explanation for this change, and there's no way to do this without being blunt, so this is it.

So in pX2 I introduced a feature that is very, very common on imageboards that gets a lot of use known as ajax fetching, where basically, when you hover over a link to a post that isn't found on the page you're on, the browser behind the scenes calls up the html document of the appropriate thread, then searches its contents and pairs it with the link you hovered over, and after it's done with that, it pairs any other links that need paired with a post that are found in the same fetched thread. That's how it was implemented here, that's how it was implemented on Efchan, that's how it was implemented on MLPchan, hell even 4chan has it the same way. Generally, both this feature and the thread updater are the most server strenuous features found on a browser end script that you can find on an imageboard, yet also amongst the most useful.

I guess what it all blows down to is the fact that all these new features have been introduced on an imageboard that has never had them before, and now we have to acknowledge the fact that server cpu usage and bandwidth are never unlimited. You can't get the best of both worlds; you can only make compromises. Though kusaba X's inefficiency may be partly responsible for the current issues, this isn't a concern that's exclusive to Ponychan. On 4chan, they have an inline extension now with most of those features inspired by third party extensions, but in order to autoupdate, you still have to check the box at the bottom of the page. On efchan, they have a native ajax fetcher and an autoupdater, but the updater has a fixed timer. On MLPchan, they have all of the above without overloading their server, but in return, the browsers do the dirty work of generating image thumbnails, which don't always come out so perfect. It's not really a matter of throwing hardware at the solution so much as it is to find the best solution to get the most out of what you already got. And frankly, I really don't want to be held accountable (or at least feel like I am) for slowing down Ponychan's servers and ruining the fun for everyone else, just because people expect an immediate response out of a thread that has gone without a single post for over 2 minutes and 35 seconds (because to hit 90, you idle for 5 + 10 + 20 + 40 + 80 seconds) because that really doesn't seem fair.

However, what I can do, now that I see complaints saying that the cooldown is running a little too fast, and noticing that the cooldown approaches that 90 second ceiling at a degree quicker than the one on 4chan X where I got the idea, is that I can extend the duration of the cooldown period with a shallower algorithm. Maybe a pattern like, 5, 10, 20, 30, 45, 60, 90? I think that seems reasonable.

Yeah, my bad, I fixed the settings box for you quickly, and I found out that some browsers aren't playing the notification sound because some of them are looking for mp3 files and others are looking for ogg's, which I'll take care of tomorrow.

>other boards dead/shitpost

Wait, you mean to tell me that things don't get fixed by throwing better hardware to badly optimized things? Lies!

And yeah, I know they've implemented such systems on pretty much all the other image boards. Real problem just was it capping a bit too fast, and sometimes not resetting when new posts appear and just keep at the 90's timer.
And yes, that kind of a pattern would be preferred, if you'd be willing to make it so.

The cookie blocker that sets native pX to automatically off is added now. And the links should be fixed as well.

Oh yeah, the notification sound should be working now in 2.12. Not sure if I understand the issue with the highlighter though. Maybe it's a bug exclusively on firefox? I wonder if anyone else is having this problem because I haven't found it yet.

Just to be clear, this feature has never been removed; only when new posts are added does the cooldown reset to your set value.

The cooldown's been revised now, so now the sequence goes 5, 10, 15, 25, 35, 45, 60, 75, 90.

Hello there, thread.
I don't normally visit /meta/, but I just came by to say how much I like this new PonychanX so far! I can't really tell the difference it made with loading times, but it looks darn sleek and modern!
My only slight complaint, if that can count as one at all, is that the top bar with the board names change shape after about half a second of page loading, which kind of disoriented me a bit at first. Not really a big deal, but honestly I couldn't find anything else to bring up!

Whoever made it, keep up the good work, and let me know if you run some sort of a donation drive for your efforts!

I had some severe problems with the new integrated version some minutes ago on /oat/, apparently since my preferred Firefox pX setup only has one sole function (the filters) activated, but after some testing on /test/ and with default pX settings on IE (Thank heavens for IE 11 for testing purposes), I believe I have found a huge bug and one general problem.

Bug: If quick reply isn't activated, I can't post, because the regular posting mode doesn't appear. To get the regular posting mode to appear, I have to turn on quick reply and then click Toggle Post Form every time I want it. It should be perfectly feasible to use pX2 without having Quick Reply turned on.

Problem: The buttons for hiding, resetting hidden threads, and the post Reply button just sends me to the top of the page as if a browser function is too old (Java? Coding errors?).

I just noticed this, putting it here since I don't know how I am supposed to give feedback.

The quick post box only refreshes/empties if you are making a post with an image. With anything else, like with embed only or only text, everything just stays there even when your post goes through.

The new pX is amazing, and I only have one minor issue with it. Before the update, I could press Tab twice after typing my post to select Reply, then hit enter, but Tab now seemingly prioritizes the top bar. Or maybe it's been selecting Auto mode all this time and I just need to hit Tab three times instead.

A few announcements here
• Yes, Orange just updated the native version of Ponychan X to 2.12 this morning.
• For anyone here that came in response to the site's updates presented with any bugs (the leading one being the disappearing post form when you turn off the QR) I can make those fixes on the extension pronto. In fact, I made those changes just now in 2.13. However, I'm not the one with FTP access to the Ponychan's servers and cannot make those changes directly to the site. If you want to keep the native version, I ask of you to please remain patient for one of the admins to install the update and just use the QR until this is fixed. I apologize if this is an inconvenience.

Oh yeah, in 2.13 I also changed the filter formula, so when you're filtering a name or subject, you only need a piece of the name to have it filtered now.

I can still click links, but when I hover over thumbnails or post numbers, nothing happens.

Might as well throw this out here...

I have two problems with using this.

1) In order to use the old Post form, I have to enable Quick reply, which is kinda dumb. Please in a future update allow people to choose the quick reply box or the old post form through the settings menu, because when I disable Quick reply, I can't use the old post form at all.

2) Whenever it refreshes the thread, the timer to refresh it again increases for reasons unknown. No idea why, but hopefully this will be fixed as well.

I am using a 2nd gen Jailbroken iPod touch, btw, and I somehow cannot download the GM thing provided for reasons unknown for safari.

Ok so look, I'm not an asshole.
My timer was always set at 45 seconds, enough time to not strain the server, without being a child poking their mother every 5 seconds. (1-30 seconds). I don't like being forced to a 90 second time simply because I'm polite. I'll set it to 1 to milk the formula as much as possible if I really am going to be forced to wait so long just because your worried about what a few inconsiderate twats might do. I'd rather you set a higher minimum time than punished those of us whom didn't have it low in the first place, in some type of a balancing act.

Good plan in theory.

Horrible plan considering who is now stop-gapping the fixes going through, even if the stars align and all these issues are actually fixed before the week is out.

I already got all the issues fixed and sent an email to orange to make an emergency update only six hours ago.

Enclosed in this last update was to the fixes for
And I can very quickly fix the thread hider which was only less than an hour ago pointed out to me.

And you can already opt out of the tag tabber in pX settings > view > uncheck "use organized tagging"

In my defense, it uses the exact same sequence as the one on 4chanX and is far from being a new concept.

Alright, before I go to bed, I'll give you guys one more announcement -
Inkwell just implemented 1.13 for me. In that update had fixes for all the bugs mentioned here except for the one about the thread hider, which I'll deal with probably Wednesday. I apologize for the issues you guys had today and hopefully the vast majority of them will be addressed and patched by the end of this week.

I'm sorry if this update went off on the wrong foot for some of you, but I will have this all sorted out. I promise.

Thanks for fixing the message box at the top of the thread, but... is there any way you could add an option to have a consistent auto-update interval? For instance, I like my auto-update interval to be 15 seconds and stay at 15 seconds, but in version 2 it just goes 15, 30, 45, 60. And I don't want that. What if there's a thread that hasn't updated for 15 minutes and someone posts and I only know about it 15 minutes and 15 seconds after the fact?

It's good to hear that most problems are pretty easy to fix. You're doing really great work, X Anon. The native version was still 2.12 when I checked ~five minutes ago, but I'll probably check again in a few hours now that Inkwell has picked up on it.

Edit: Speaking of which, it turned into 2.13 right after I had posted this. This is a good morning for me so far.

Seconded, though I had probably mentioned it already.

Was the post form blank too when the index bar didn't follow along? I had that happen to me too three times this morning, seemingly at random, the first was after I had posted a post on /oat/, and another when I simply opened /oat/ in my browser. A reload fixed it both times.

Edit: Plus a third time after I had posted this post. I need to test this closer...

Speaking of which, it's also like that when I go to specific pages in long threads (like if I go to page 2 of a 250-post thread), which in this case also happened in pX1. But at least the pictures are loading this time around, and even that is a huge improvement.

Edit 2: The testing took some time because I couldn't get pX2.13 to work on /test/, and so I cannot confirm that the following is a consistent bug or not, but basically both the post form is blank and the index bar doesn't follow along on the first page load after posting a post (or after similar actions, such as changing pX settings).

I dont see anyone else having these issues, but they didn't start until the update.

While pX is turned on:
-Load thread after posting doesnt work, instead just takes me back to board page
-My name field randomly get cleared/comes back. I'll make a post with my name, but then when I go back into the thread it will be blank. But weird is that it was randomly come back if I go to a different thread sometimes?
-pX itself doesn't work in some threads for some reason. I'll open one thread and nothing is backlinked and no auto update. Open a different thread and everything is fine

Works on my end
The old PchanX required a weird like ritual to get to work (as the settings page hardly ever showed up, only home)

Figured it out, apparently there were two objects called Ponychan both in the pchan-x file and the kusaba.js file that were conflicting with each other, and were throwing errors when cookies were fetched, setting the navbar to unpinned. Just sent an email with the fix to inkwell right now.

Also the fix had a change to the cooldown formula, so depending on how high you have the timer set, the shorter the sequence. Then any time set above 30 seconds will have no cooldown at all.

Edit: according to what I found in the wayback machine, this is exactly how Mithent fixed the hider bug when ponychan x was first made native, so you'll probably see the thread hiders working again as well.

Wait, so...

If you set a 5 seconds, it goes up to 90, if you set at 20 seconds, it goes up to something else, and if you set it at 30, it just stays at 30? Is that what the new thing is?
>> No. 156030 ID: af273c
Here's how the new cooldown will work when it's implemented, as how I sent the script to Inkwell:

At 5: 5, 10, 15, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 60, 60...
At 15: 15, 20, 25, 30, 40, 50, 50...
At 25: 25, 30, 35, 40, 40...
At 30: 30, 30, 30...
And anything above or equal 30 won't have an increment.

There's not going to be a 90 as a ceiling anymore, mainly because while the thread is only semi-active, it's still likely on the first page of the board.

Let's hope that he can implement it as fast as he did with 2.13. It doesn't appear to me to have been implemented yet when I write this sentence.

Everyone who used the integrated pX1 (I can't remember the version number, but was it 1.2x-ish?) was upgraded automatically to pX2 (2.12 at first, then 2.13 the following day) within a matter of minutes and with little known warning.

There are significant functional changes with this version. I'm sure some of the backlash is AHHH NEW STUFF, but there have been repeated specific complaints about the way things are implemented (esp. the increasing countdown timer for the thread timer) that have nothing to do with it being new. You can easily see that specific, functional complaint repeated over and over if you read the thread.

Meh, this site is no instant-messenger, if 4chan can live with a 30 second refresh then ponychan can just as well

The new extension keeps freezing my browser. Like, it'll completely freeze a tab while trying to update a thread, and I can't scroll or do anything. Sometimes it un-freezes after it updates and sometimes it doesn't. I have to close the tab and entirely reload the thread.

When you click on the Choose Files it will pull up the TV and the Wii U Pad. When this happens, you click the image you want. It use to pull right up in the box. now it doesn't.

Okay, so something has gone very wrong. The quick reply box was following my cursor when I tried to move it. As in once I moved it to where I wanted it, it wouldn't stay and was stuck to my cursor.

I have a solution for this one. I'm just waiting for one of the admins to respond. Though until then, I found out you can work around this bug by going to pX settings > Post > uncheck "Hide quick reply after posting" until the update is made.

It's this bandwidth safety net I call a cooldown, where the timer increases as it becomes less likely that a new post will appear in the thread. Though you'll end up seeing the increment ceiling decrease to 60 rather than 90 when the update goes through.

It appears that !!Woona made the update overnight. I'm glad to see everything is going as planned now.

And now that these changes are coming into play, I think it's time to redefine the purpose of this bug report thread. The external builds at the time of this thread's creation were the only builds out there. And they came with the convenience of having a direct line with the development, which is why I'm not planning on scrapping the external builds. As it currently stands, the external version will be the nightly build of Ponychan X and the built-in version will be the neutral build. I think that seems reasonable, right?

That happened to me before; I fixed it by reinstalling Tampermonkey and reinstalling the script.

But now the site's built-in pX is updated to version 2.13, so there's no reason to use Tampermonkey anymore!

So I'm still having problems with this...

When I type out a post and the thread updates with new post what I'm typing glitches out a bit.

Also have problems mousing over links to post that are out of thread or past the +50 mark and it causes my browser to times I have to restart it.

I've noticed that the top bar doesn't follow you on the way down the page on large threads. This is annoying because I have to scroll all the way up just to refresh the page (at least, refresh the page without reloading the entire thread). Can this be fixed please?

Is this occurring with the built-in version? Or is it coming from the extension? I can see how that could be possible in larger threads, since the larger the threads, the longer it takes to get the content it's looking for, which I can fix by putting a time limit to stop it from overloading your browser.

I had a fix submitted for this problem last night. Is it still getting stuck there, even today?

Is it refusing to submit post content, or is it not appearing on the page at all?

If it's not appearing at all, try resetting QR position? (That's the one thing I know would carry on past a browser restart), unless there's something else I don't know about.

What the fuck...

Somehow, Chrome is still having extension crashes with the site's built-in pX, even with Tampermonkey completely uninstalled. Same deal of just randomly getting the "Oh snap!" page upon refresh/reload.

The only idea I can think of (do I dare give such a conventional answer?) is to restart your computer. Every once in a while for inexplicable reasons chrome often fixes bugs after a restart, for example, with the breaking zoom-hover image expansions, which is also I think a bug with chrome that has yet to be fixed. Whatever is happening is not only odd and out of the ordinary, but also beyond what javascript is even capable of controlling.

Great work with the updating and new version and stuff and such.

One thing I'm wondering about: My refresh timer is set to 60, but lately I've seen the timer drop down to 5 seconds. This seems really odd to me.

I think I've found something that triggers a crash.

I turned off the auto-refresh, and almost every time I post and then hit F5, it crashes.

Yeah, I'm getting like 5x more crashes with the built-in pX than with Tampermonkey.

Thanks a lot Chrome for not giving me any debug information about the crashes whatsoever.

Okay, so new comment from me (I haven't read the whole thread, so pap me if it's been mentioned already), but everyone knows how it shows the number of new posts in a thread at the top, right? Well it used to be that it would go down as you scroll so you could always see how many unread posts you had (unless, of course, you had to scoll up a ways from the bottom, but that's a whole different issue), but now it shows how many new posts there are and then it goes away when you click the tab, and you can't really see how many posts there are in there.

It's kind of another minor complaint, but I thought I'd mention it.

I wasn't going to whine about this but I really miss having it at the bottom since I like to keep my nav bar from scrolling since it fucks with my screencaps. Also, the random trip thing sticks to one trip when I'm in a thread now instead of changing from post to post like it used to. I dunno, they're minor issues so it's no big deal really. I just wanted to bring them up... *nudge nudge*

I, on the other hand, really like it being up there. Especially now that it takes up to 50 seconds to refresh. The bottom right is where the mod tools are, and it blocks my ability to refresh using Pchan X.

I seem to be having a problem with the autorefresh...
Previously, on the site's version, if I set the timer to anything greater than 60 seconds, it would count down once, and then go past 0 and start counting negative numbers.
>pic is the timer at -3505 and still going
Now, after installing version 2.18 with Tapermonkey, whenever I try to set the timer higher than 50 seconds, it always resets to 50 and works normally after that.
So, currently I have no way to set the timer to a higher number, say, 120 seconds.
I guess it's better now than not being able to refresh at all, but still.

>mfw it's caused by yet another Tampermonkey bug.
Yeah, I'm not even kidding you, it's another bug caused by TM. And to confirm, I took an exact copy of the site's script that previously worked without problems on chrome as a TM build and reopened it, which also presents the new bug despite the fact. It previously never did, and even more telling is the fact that the bug can't be replicated across any other GM client on any of the other browsers, not even chrome-based Opera. And here's the kicker - the initial bug that would crash the browser was triggered by event listeners being tripped. This current bug is being caused by the browser trying to remove these event listeners. The only two places I know where there is the case of event listeners being removed are when you drag the QR around and when you slide the volume knob. And both of those are affected by the bug currently on TM exclusively to chrome and no other browser whatsoever.

However, I'm just going to write a work-around for this issue now and just call it a day. It won't be a problem.

Yeah, I noticed that bug and made a quick patch for it to prevent any values any higher than 50 from giving those bizarre results. I'll bring back the unlimited counter soon.

Is the page freeze bug a really prevalent issue? I've been looking for it but so far I haven't encountered it, not even on firefox. Does it only occur in larger threads?

Not freezing for me, just a slight pause whenever the timer hits zero and reloads and it cuts out some words. Say I want to type:

"The horse jumped over the fence"

If it reloads while typing it might come out as:

"The horse jumpr the fence"

or something, with some bits cut out

I found out the problem here. Apparently the current versions of Greasemonkey mandate update URLs with an SSL certificate. I guess maybe one easy workaround for this may be to just redirect the nightly version update url to a public dropbox file, since they already have SSL out of the box (and I've seen it successfully update there before).

I can't tell if you're referring to a bug that I might have missed or if you're asking why the behavior of the post counter in the title has changed. For a while, there was a bug where if an idle thread hidden in your tabs had new posts triggering the counter and you clicked on the tab, the new post counter would hide prematurely even if you didn't scroll over them yet. If you see this happen, then it's a bug.

Though if you're referring to the new behavior of the post counter, whereas the loading thread flashes how many replies there are ("[x replies] /board/ - headline" then idles to "/board/ - headline" as opposed to "(unread) /board/ - headline") that behavior was intended. In the previous pX thread, I suggested the possibility of rewriting the counter algorithm and the guys in the former thread seemed to like the idea. >>153062 >>153063 >>153074

Oh don't worry, I'm open for as much feedback as I can get. I've just been a little busy lately with some personal concerns that kind of been keeping me away for a bit. I put an option dropdown under the style tab so you can change the title, though it's implemented kind of awkwardly which I'll deal with when 2.2 gets pushed out soon.'

Try it in 2.19 now. I'm guessing that some browsers didn't like the fact that I set it up with two synchronous requests running when new replies were fetched. It doesn't appear to lag anymore in the new version.

I mean, it works, as in, I can move the box, but...the cursor is then forever stuck on the movement of the box, and there's no way to click off of it. Even right clicking to get the mouse away from it doesn't work. I don't know if it's just my browser (Chrome) or whatever, but I only just recently noticed this glitch. It means I can't change the position of the box, really.

It's fine. I explain it here >>156412 that it's another bug with Tampermonkey sadly. However, since I'm changing the update url in 2.2 when it gets posted anyhow, the next version will have to be updated manually anyhow.

Until then, for any chrome users that still would like to use the nightly version, your best bet would be to just install it the old fashioned way - saving the file and dragging it to your extensions menu.

Well, that did the trick. Now it works, but there's another odd issue, I wonder if it was brought up...never happened before with the Tampermonkey build, but now that I have it manually added to Chrome, well...anytime I click someone's post number in order to refer back to it or quote it, it sends me to the top of the webpage, but does still add the >>##### to my QR box. I have no idea why this happens now, but I suspect it has something to do with how Tampermonkey handles the script.

>For a while, there was a bug where if an idle thread hidden in your tabs had new posts triggering the counter and you clicked on the tab, the new post counter would hide prematurely even if you didn't scroll over them yet. If you see this happen, then it's a bug.

This one, I think. Like right now I have 9 new posts over in PAD. If I click my PAD tab and scroll down even a single notch (I still haven't seen any of the new posts) the new post counter goes away. If that's a bug and you're already aware of it then I guess that's all I really have to say on the subject.

Just got done with 2.2 with a workaround for Tampermonkey's recent bug, so for chrome users, you can return to the TM version again.

Both of these bugs appear to be fixed too.

And finally, I'd like to introduce you with a new viewing mode exclusive to /pic/, for anyone who still goes there. Pic related. I feel that this display mode may be more appropriate for that board's environment, so I have the default setting leaving it on, assuming there won't be any objections to this change.

Yep, sounds like there something that's failing to run in the script. Can you do me a favor and copy what shows up on the dev console when you try to do this? For opera, it should be right click > inspect element > console Oddly enough, opera doesn't support desktop notifications despite it being based almost entirely off google chrome's engine. They must have removed support for it for intentional reasons. However, I recently found out that firefox mobile now supports desktop notifications, so if you use firefox mobile a lot, that might be a highlight to point out.

Whatever the bug with opera seems to be, it appears that no combination of options can replicate the bug with the latest version. Whatever is causing the error, it doesn't appear to exist in the extension version, and whenever I hear back from Inkwell, we'll get the latest update implemented for you. If it gets too obtrusive for you until then, you can always try out the extension version which is always up to date.

It's possible that the function that turns off native pX (which often admittedly didn't work anyhow) that outputted this message might have been involved with the navbar problem, so just to be safe, I removed it entirely.

This might be a silly question to ask, but are you sure you just don't have the option turned off in the site settings? I really can't think of any other possible ways that the Ponychan object in the core script that would otherwise assign these settings could be conflicting with Ponychan X in any other way. And if not, maybe something happened during the native version overhaul that messed with your cookies to make them unreadable. Try clearing your cookies maybe?

No worries, and it's not a silly request at all. It's been done before on sites but the app doesn't make itself exclusive to one imageboard usually, and I was going to attempt something very similar to this before picking up Ponychan X. There's one app similar to that design in the Play Store I know called "Chant" that syndicates content from 4chan, 7chan, and 420chan and has gotten really popular. My initial idea was to make an app that would syndicate content from Ponychan, Efchan, MLPchan, and since such a project wouldn't mandate official site devs, make the project entirely on unofficial developer's hands. If anyone would like to pursue that project, I'd be more than willing to contribute.

Here's some relevant download links for anyone interested

I have a question. Apologies if this has been asked before.

I've noticed that the new pX filters threads made by people you've filtered (which is a great improvement), but it does not disable backlinks to posts made by posters you've filtered. I'm wondering if there are any plans to implement this and made the filtering a little more complete? Someone I've filtered is trying to talk to me right now, and it kind of defeats the point of filtering to see backlinks going to nowhere and being able to easily mouse over them and see the filtered post.

It would also be nice if threads on the front page would conceal a filtered post by making sure three posts appear on the front page (if you see a thread with "posts hidden" and only see one or two posts, it's a dead giveaway that your filtered person is posting) but I completely understand if that's not feasible.

He does have a point though. If you have content filtered, I don't see any reason that you would want to be notified of content that you don't want to see in the first place.

Anyways, back to the original suggestion,
>it does not disable backlinks to posts made by posters you've filtered
Yeah, I was made aware of this issue a few weeks ago. It's been fixed, though I'm just waiting to hear back from the admin to allow me to implement updatable scripts native to the site.

>second suggestion about the front page
I actually haven't implemented any Ponychan X features for the posts on the front page at all to be honest. In fact, you're probably the first to ask about it. But that's okay, I can get them implemented.

First of all, great work on this new iteration of PchanX. There is an issue I'm having with it that wasn't present in the old one though. My internet access is not 100% reliable - sometimes I lose connection for a few seconds (or longer). If this happens during an autoupdater refresh of a thread though, that's it. It gets stuck on 0s and won't update the view of the thread ever again, even if I actually click the refresh cicle-arrow next to it - so I have to refresh the entire page and usually lose easy access to all posts beyond the 50 newest. The old version for comparison would just get back to refreshing when the internet access is back. Is this intentional? Can it be fixed, if not?

It really sounds like you're running an outdated version of Ponychan X if these problems are occurring. While the update hasn't been made yet for the native version, I made the updates for the extension a while back.

However, the issue with the QR freezing up on refresh on Firefox as moshy and mein pointed out was definitely a bug, which I finally fixed in 2.24.

Yeah, I saw this happen a few times on my phone. I'll fix it as soon as I can figure out a way to access a dev console on mobile devices.

Done. In version 2.24, posts on the front page can now be filtered.

I moved that message to the console since it's not really an error.

From what I've been hearing, Opera is still missing a number of basic features that haven't been implemented from the overhaul of their old Presto browser engine to their new Blink engine. As innovative the desktop notification feature can be, their devs seemed to be more concerned with implementing more primitive features like bookmarks and Linux support than they are with API's still in the "working draft" phase. I'm not saying that day will ever come, but it might take them quite some time.

I'm considering working on a separate build altogether for mobile browsers since their ideal interface would seem so much different from what it is now. For example, the QR was never meant to be mobile browser friendly at all. If this goes underway, that'll probably be a more ideal solution for the 3DS. No hope for the PS3 because apparently from what I heard, their browser doesn't support localStorage, making it impossible for the user to save settings. I would assume the PS4's browser has been updated to support these features. Not sure about the Wii U though.

I'm not sure if this has been addressed, but I' noticed that Ponychan-X sometimes drops letters while I'm typing, like it ignores them sometimes and makes my post filled with what looks like typos, when I know there's nothing wrong with my typing

also, clicking the Edit button on a post no longer saves when I click on the save button. It just stays there. I have to check the box, scroll down and click the edit button, and then edit it.

Yep, just fixed it over the weekend. Though apparently GM reads the version numbers differently depending on whether you have a third decimal in your version number so it's probable that you'll have to update manually once more (2.231 won't update automatically to 2.24 because it thinks this is a downgrade). Won't happen again, I promise!

Yep, no problem!
>WARNING: localstorage item 'settings.10' doesn't seem to be valid JSON.
If I have it implemented right, it should be notifying you that your localstorage item holding your post history for marking posts as editable is unreadable. If you're not getting any edit buttons next to their posts when they go through, next to "Reply • Report" like they would normally be, then it's confirmed. If that's true, the solution to this problem would be to clear your local storage. But be warned, this will clear all of your existing 'edit' buttons. (I know, it sucks, but that's the flaw of the site's 'edit' mechanism. I'm guessing that either something tampered with your local storage, or the reserved memory for local storage is full.)

>The other issue is that images used to zoom on hover. Now they don't?..
Well, the image expansion is actually a native site feature rather than a pX implementation, but that's fine, I can still answer this one. Are you using Chrome, Opera, or Safari? Because there is a strange bug that occurred a few times from my experience that prevented images from expanding on hover, and the solution to it was to simply restart the computer, which leads me to believe that it could be an issue with the way webkit handles the "onmouseenter" event listener.

I think I know what bug you're talking about. There was an issue I found on my own where the list of replies would not appear when menu heads were disabled. Though that was fixed both on the extension and the native version. If you're truly using 2.12 and not the newest version, I suggest you upgrade, then get back to me if they're still broken.

I haven't really noticed if I have been getting edit buttons lately. But in any case, I deleted the local storage files and that fixed the error and now I have edit buttons.

Restarting did not fix this problem. But deleting localstorage did. So now that's also working.

I've noticed that a lot of the time, my pX hangs after a refresh. Like I'll hit f5 on /oat/, and most of the page will load, and pX will kinda sit there hanging waiting to activate. Sometimes it'll go through after like 5 minutes.

I've also noticed that gif thumbnails are automatically animated, even though I have unchecked the animate gif thumbnails option because my internet is super slow.

Sure. I hid the filename in the tooltip in the image expanding link, and moved the date underneath the poster name.

Also the /pic/ dupe detector is done. It's in the new version.

I upgraded Firefox to the latest version because Ponychan was having serious issues. The good news is, the old issues have been reolved by updating firefox.

NOW I have a whole new set of issues. As you can see, various icons and menus have gotten themselves an identical twin, the quick reply box included. Now, this would be weird but not horrible if one of the things that have doubled wasn't...the posts.

That's right, every post I make is uploaded twice, and deleting one will delete the other as well.

Is there a way to get it more droid friendly and working like a desktop version?

I still plan on making a mobile version of Ponychan X, which will have the QR completely rewritten from scratch. I just wish one of the admins would recruit a backend coder to help because I have no way of distributing it as an external script without going through the hassle of making it a fully-fledged browser extension.

>when I quote someone it refreshes the page
Oh, in that case, it sounds like javascript isn't executing at all. Do you see a settings button in the navbar at the top right?

Maybe the box is stuck outside the window again? Either way, it might not matter, because I have some casing set up to catch the QR anytime that the box gets stuck outside the screen. If it still gives you this issue, just let me know.

So, in 2.3 I made a few changes. I fixed the bug with the eaten posts that would take place when you hit the back button to return to plus-50 mode and autoupdate more than the 50 posts that exist on the page loaded.

However the biggest objective of 2.3 is to the settings interface more user-friendly. Until I get a cleaner UI setup in there, I temporarily have tooltips giving a description above each checkbox that gives a description of the feature to be toggled. Also, hitting the apply button doesn't refresh the page anymore. It's a complicated process, but I've gotten a number of the settings to change live on the page. I hope to have all of them done soon. But until then, try out 2.3.

Oh yeah, it does that often if your network connection isn't stable enough. If it's having problems regardless of how stable your wi-fi is, then there's probably another issue involved. But unfortunately, providing a fix for the version of Ponychan X built-in would require an admin's attention, which the lack of there being any has been increasingly frustrating.

I do wish that someone back there would address the issue, whether it'd be one of the existing admins doing something out of their own time, or finding a backend coder to do that work for them. I have asked the mods about it a few times already, but until someone takes on that responsibility, I have absolutely no way of providing any front-end fixes outside of a desktop extension. And that sucks, because it's been barricading the site from getting long-anticipated updates by people who willfully go out of their way to provide it for them. And that's just accounting for the people that provided front-ends (like Grandil and Zeke for example), who were only able to provide any help at all because they didn't need source code.

I'm fixing it. Though since it would likely require me to rewrite the function, can you implement a method accessible from the window that can process new embed event listeners per individual post? That way it keeps the code uniform and saves one of us from reinventing the wheel here.

That would be perfect, actually. Though I might need to make some last-minute tweaks to it before it's implemented because I didn't fix this bug yet >>158542 as well as implementing the recent changes for the youtube embedder.

If this idea later becomes a feasible option, I still would prefer that I work the updates into a separate neutral build that would be picked up by the server instead. That way, I can get the inevitable bug reports from people knowingly using the bleeding edge builds in the extension first, then hand it to the end-user.

Congrats on the promotion by the way, zeke.

Oh hey, I'm back.

I do see how that could be favored, though the only reason as to why I'm not really worried about it is because the server host has proven to be pretty reliable. That one hour incident remains the only reported downtime I've had with them thusfar.

Wow, just wow. The only way I know that this could be possible is if you posted with the exact same post number in a different board, or the post cache is using irrelevant data to validate which posts are yours somehow. Though I think I have it supposedly set up to validate whether the post is in the same board as indicated in the address bar first. Has that happened on more than one post, or is this the first?

I'm on it.

Hey Ember, and that's actually a good question. The initial plan for the menu dropdown was actually that there would be two columns for shortcut settings that would save immediately when you changed them, in between the theme options and the settings links.

I found out that the dead link bug actually directs to Kusaba X feeding incorrect metadata to the links. The proper fix on Kusaba's end would just be to strip the link off the post number, however the metadata and the link that kusaba generates directs you to a thread that never existed, and assumes that the post in question is always the OP of it.

There's absolutely nothing in my hands that can be done on my end about it unfortunately.

>> No. 160914 ID: af273c
For example, if I made a link to post 100, which doesn't exist, instead of just not binding a link to it, kusaba x will assume that the post number is the OP of an external thread and redirect you to it.

What happens, with at least the default built in PchanX on, is it starts as that, but then when I mouse over it it tells me it's dead. I don't think that happens on auto-refresh, though?

Like with me it'll be like someone double posts and then deletes one, but the autorefresh catches both, so it's up on my page, and then it's a link and...I don't know how this stuff works really. For one reason or another it doesn't tell me "dead" when I mouse over dead things on auto-refresh.

Well my point was that you can see the link directs you to the nonexistent thread when you turn off pX, and that this is the faulty metadata where the (OP) - > bug derives from.

But yeah, I noticed the issue with the dead links not always working and will find time doing it this weekend along with a few other bug fixes on queue. Thanks for the report though.

Ponychan X or X2 doesn't work. The autorefresh stays at 0, and the fields shrink down to a small size. Probably an error.

Noticed a weird bug with the Filter.

On boards like /nope/ and /downhillfast/, the filter doesn't seem to work at all.

Just a little bug I found, nothing major.
>> No. 162127 ID: af273c
Better late than never I guess.

The bug with the sticky quick reply frame was a bug initially on Tampermonkey for Chrome because one of the rushed updates where they had to deal with all of the issues on chrome's end at version 35's initial release, I'm guessing initially made all of the binded 'event listeners' uncancelable. I found a workaround for the problem and just simply left them on. However, even without that workaround now, you shouldn't have that problem anymore because Tampermonkey has since fixed the bug.

I have a feeling that this might not have to do with Ponychan X. Reasons being that the events that trigger when you choose a file really have no access to the timeout function that makes the timer tick. And the popup window that follows is entirely native code that only the browser itself can access. Perhaps the folder opened in the directory could somehow cause the browser to freeze? Not sure what can be causing it from outside the browser.

It was moved to the navbar because it's usually not a good practice to have fixed elements scattered on a window because it can be intrusive to the content underlying it. I guess it's not that big of a deal since most people are used to the timer being on the bottom right as most other chans do, however you can move it there by pasting the css below in the 'Enable custom styling' in the Style tab.

#dialog {
position: fixed;
bottom: 0px;
right: 0px;
#dialog a:hover {
background-color: initial !important;
#countdown, #dialog a {
color: initial !important;

I'm guessing it's some setting combination that causes it to break, which is a little harder to debug. I'll get to it later.

So it seems like I'm having an issue turning off the audio notification for when someone quote one of my posts.

When desktop notifications are not enabled, I get the default notification noise at full volume. If I enable notifications, set the noise to [none] and set the volume to 0, I still get the notification noise, albeit somewhat quieter.

For anyone wondering whether development is still in the works for newer versions of Ponychan X, don’t worry, it still is. Though now that Zeke has picked up on working on the site, we now kind of run into the issue that every new feature (or even an edit of an existing feature) that involves javascript has to be written twice. Currently I’ve been working on another script project that merges all of the frontend code into one easily expandable model, but it requires changes to the page templates. Also, I’m not sure yet if it will be intended for Ponychan, or if Zeke would be done with Gochan by the time it is done. I gave Zeke a pdf of the proposal in detail if any of site’s staff hasn’t seen it, but I wrote it back in early September so it might be a little outdated.

Also, for those that were asking about the image expansion issues, that’s actually a native feature rather than a Ponychan X feature. However, I explain what I believe is the root cause of the bug here: >>161508

There's an element that covers over the settings checkboxes which has been an issue for a while. You just have to scroll down to toggle it because the element is fixed on the page.

Oh, yeah that means your post cache is full. The reason why I didn't want Ponychan X to erase it is because it contains your entire post history. But you can clear it by entering this line of javascript in the address bar:

javascript:; localStorage.removeItem("settings.10"); void(0);

It'd be nice to be able to filter images from specific posters. Kinda like the filter now, but instead of hiding their entire post, make it just hide any image attached to their post.

>> No. 162863 ID: af273c
It's fine, and you're not the first to request this. I'm guessing that the appeal for this feature request is to hide a user's expression viewers? I'll probably make something up like this in my newer project, but not ponychan X though. Reason being that this falls moreso under the category of "Anonymizing" rather than "Filtering", that of which category is all done on the site's end and userscripts have no easy way to access the global namespace to control it with.

I haven't written any message like that in pX, so it's likely just echoing an output message returned from the submitted request in /board.php.

Just spoilering them has the upside of not having to turn the filter off if there are only reaction-pics or something else entirely
or maybe just your own stupid curiosity that wants to check the pic

With the pics only being spoilered you can still just click 'em for whatever reason

If someone chooses to filter images posted by a certain poster I don't see why it shouldn't work like when posters are filtered.

Filtered posts are deleted. Not just collapsed or spoilered.

But that's just my take on it. I didn't make the suggestion and I can't write the code.
>> No. 163527 ID: af273c
Aside from the image filter, which I guess for now will be set aside for the other project, I have a few other ideas in mind.

As someone pointed out on /test/, apparently this site supports flash files. No idea if it's always been here and no one really noticed, but it's there now. Well, by the time I was done fiddling with it, I later noticed that it only lets you post them on /test/ for some reason.

Oh well, as for now, the QR will let you post .swf and .ogg files, assuming you post them on the board that supports them.

You can also click to toggle the flash player to run directly on the thread. Try it here:

>> No. 163821 ID: af273c
It's possible, but I just need to come up with an idea of what the user interface would look like. 4chan X has this feature but is designed on the premise that the end-user knows regular expression. I can't really expect the average ponychan user to know regular expression, so I don't want people to break something by accident that they might not know how to fix, so I'd have to come up with a different design here.

Nah, your script just ran before Ponychan's inline script triggered. I fixed it.

Mm, of course. Well, take your time, no rush.

If you're worried about people using it and accidentally filtering everything, maybe you could put a warning on it like "Don't use unless you're absolutely sure you know what you're doing", something like that, perhaps?

Reason I want a "filter post by word/phrase" function is because there's a weekly spammer on /pony/ that the admins refuse to do anything about, and he always puts the same words/phrases in his post every time.

That bug again? I mean, there's technically two issues going on here. The quick reply box can return outputted server messages if for whatever reason the post doesn't go through, and some cases, it will display its own messages. However, this one is definitely a server-end message.

I'll leave this to someone on the back end of the site to handle. There are two issues that only they can fix.

Server downtime. is down. Not sure how long this has been going on, but I would suggest submitting a ticket to your host if the problem persists for any longer than overnight. You pay for a service for someone to maintain your site's uptime for you after all.

A bug. It appears that whatever script is written to output that unfortunately vague message, it looks like it is taking the wrong header from that cloudflare page. Check the page again. "Error 521" is probably the header it's trying to scrape, but instead it fetches the header titled "What can I do?". Probably because cloudflare has changed their error message since the last time anyone has fiddled with it.

As you're all aware, Ponychan is adopting MLPchan's current setup of Tinyboard. Therefore the existing Kusaba-based application will soon be obsolete. This presents many opportunities. For starts, we get cleaner generated html that is overall far more organized than kusaba. Secondly, all the coding is centralized as one singular script. This site is changing for the better, and these changes will mean the site will no longer need support from external client-end scripts in order to give you all the features you'd expect to have.

That being said, consider my involvement with Ponychan X over. PX was coded as a retrofitting that only was ever compatible with kusaba, and MLPchan already has their own built-in script, meaning that pX will soon be obsolete too. Nonetheless, I'd like to thank milky for being the original author and idea-father of pX, Noble for initially stickying the thread, and all of the bug reporters in this thread for helping the codebase get as far as it has gotten. This is also my formal request for the mods to unsticky this thread.
