Testing the "Show Full Post" button

Thanks for documenting this; I noticed the malfunction earlier, but was busy with work.

This one is kind of amusing, at least. I’m pretty sure producer David Simon isn’t a marsupial.

Oh, thank goodness, I thought it was just me. (I even posted on it on the star trek thread, then deleted the post.)

OK, this time the glitch made it look like the latest Mars probe crashed in Oklahoma.

New game until it gets fixed?

I love this commentary on the latest BBshop gadget.

I tested a few and this looks fixed to me now.

For the curious, this was a minor bug related to removing the terms “blacklist” and “whitelist” from the Discourse site settings.

Looks like the glitch is back. The full text of “Naming Inside Vladimir” had some extras when I read it.

For some reason Show Full Post is repeating the second image in all articles with more than one image.



Is anyone else seeing this?

Edit: Seeing this on Firefox on Windows 10, Safari on the iPad, and Chrome on the Android phone.

yes. in both firefox81, and chrome85 on macos10.15.

[ ps: fwiw, the picture isn’t doubled in firefox’s “reader” view of the main article. i thought i read something in the thread earlier about “show full post” using something similar to reader to display the post. ]

[ pps: it looks like maybe in the original post, it’s not an image. it’s some sort of embed with script. it looks like (maybe) the “show full post” might be reading both the figure element’s img and the noscript element’s img. just a guess. @codinghorror ]

Okay, this double image thing is pretty horrific, especially on one of Rob’s posts.

This one is, unfortunately, outside of my wheelhouse to fix. :frowning:

Figured as much, but I thought you probably know the appropriate people to talk to.

Wow with extra double this makes everything extra horrific. Made an internal TODO to get it sorted.

Hey, I was assigned by Sam to take a look on that issue.

I slightly changed your allowed embed selectors setting and duplicated images are gone :slight_smile: There is a cache so it might take up to 10 minutes to update other posts.
