The Mark all read is only available on the front-page at the bottom of the site. Also it is only marking the threads/posts as read in the main-forum section (front-page).

I very much second this. It's not exactly a dealbreaker but it's sorely missed by me.

The maximum allowed character for the "Guild" option on profile is 20 characters. While I could not find any official word on the maximum allowed characters for VANILLA, it seems it used to be 24. They may have raised this limit, as I can find information from more recent years stating that it is 32.
In any case, could we have the limit at 24 (or more) for now?
Goblin Rocket Fuel Rats will not fit :(

Fixed that and made it 50 characters length.

By the way I have noted down all the recent suggestions/bugs and will be working on them for patch 1.10 - so don't worry if I haven't yet responded to everything reported so far.

In the account management page where I'm able to input my website, class, race etc the field to input "Discord" doesn't allow enough characters to input a full Discord invite link.

Hello @teebling ,
I found a major bug, it is impossible to use your forum now... :(

So the notification sign doesn't disappear in case of reports, you can't press it. So I now have a permanent 1.

Greetings,
Aeh

Only the first mention of a link shortens to the name of the spell/item. Mouseover still works on subsequent wowhead links but they will stay a link.

example:

https://classic.wowhead.com/spell=16857 ... fire-feral

https://classic.wowhead.com/spell=16857 ... fire-feral

https://classic.wowhead.com/item=8190/hanzo-sword

https://classic.wowhead.com/item=8190/hanzo-sword

If this isn't a bug then how do I keep the subsequent links from becoming full urls?

I wasn't aware of this and haven't seen it in the wild or reproduced like this either. Not sure what is going on to be honest but will investigate for patch 1.10 bug fixing.

Thing is that the whole javascript/CSS is not my own and it's not even hosted on my server - it's all on wowhead, so this is most likely a bug on their side which I'll have to tell them about once I've had a good look at my own implementation.

Hanzo Sword

Hanzo Sword

If you encase them in URL tags they seem to work independently:

Code: Select all

[url=https://classic.wowhead.com/item=8190/hanzo-sword]Hanzo Sword[/url]

[url=https://classic.wowhead.com/item=8190/hanzo-sword]Hanzo Sword[/url]
Looks like their icons aren't working at the moment either. This is usually a short term thing from what I've noticed though.

Could just be a temporary thing as well.

Refresh your browser cache, should do the trick.

I'm unable to follow a user, or I've found it very hard to learn how to do it. Usually I just visit a profile page and there'd be a button or something.

How do I follow my barrens chat forum buddies and get updates when they make comments / posts? Why was it disabled /removed?

https://www.phpbb.com/about/features/#friendfoe

p.s. - i see in the left sidebar, I can "message" but nothing else. i'm quite certain the phpBB forum software allows for this. is follow forum member disabled?

Hey @teebling not really a "bug", but do you have any plans for the recent massive spambots that are advertising to phishing links?

I can see on the account registration page that you have an anti-spambot question like:

Confirmation of registration
This is a site about World of Warcraft...:
Which I believe is static (so the answer is always the same?), so it's very easy once the bots figure out the answer.

I don't have much experience with phpBB, but according to their forum post here: https://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopic.php?t=2419551

the built in Q&A should be blocking the bots effectively.

reCaptcha v2 can be of use to prevent spambots.

@Gallow and @Flerex please see my explanation here. Neither are a perfect solution but Q+A is much more solid until the answer is found, at which point it needs to be changed. The problem is I don't know when they have the answer, because now the bots lie dormant for a few days before posting, so I don't know how many spam bots have registered in the period since the answer was broken.

If those alternatives are not good for you you can do what I do in my blog. As bots usually do not support JavaScript, create a hidden field that has an empty value and a name of a common field (age, for example).

Code: Select all

<input type="hidden" name="age" value="">
Then, with JavaScript, modify the value of this field to an arbitrary one via an event listener.

Code: Select all

document.querySelector('button[type="submit"]').addEventListener('click', _ => {
    document.querySelector('input[type="hidden"][name="age"]').value = 5063;
});
Then in your backend you just have to check that that value is what you expected. If it is not, just return a blank page so that bots can't go back and try to fix the form.

Code: Select all

if(!isset($_POST['age']) || intval($_POST['age')] !== 5063) { // Or equivalent method in your platform / framework
    die();
}
The only problems with this method are:
  • It's too simple. It won't prevent bots that are made specifically to attack your site, as bypassing it is pretty simple. However, if you get more SPAM you would know somebody is attacking you on purpose.
  • Users that do not have JavaScript support would instantly considered spammers and wouldn't be able to complete the forms. This shouldn't be a problem in most cases as every single browser nowadays supports JavaScript but still should be something to consider.

when posting as a guest, i found the spam questino to be fuckin' insane dude.

the answer is vanilla but the questino itself is retarded. it's worded as though you speak ebonics or your native language is not English.

Hey, i can confirm what "Guest" said. I wanted to register and got stuck at "Complete this sentence: World of Wacraft ' '". How would I know that I have to fill in "vanilla" here?

It would be great if there's a hint or something in it.

I bet a few users already failed to register because of that ;)

Classic, Vanilla, 1.13 are all possible and reasonable answers at this time. The question will be restructured and re-presented in upcoming patch 1.10 however.

it doesn't work for me to change profile banner. Every time I select a new image and press submit, my old banner (which I have selected to be deleted previously) is there instead. I've tried several times but it doesn't seem to work.

I sent a message to someone recruiting for their guild and it never moved from outbox to sent. So is it sent? What's the difference between outbox and sent?
