Testing the "Show Full Post" button

Not working here either. (Loading…)

Just @Carla_Sinclair’s topics?

I thought that too, but I looked at her other recent posts and the button showed up on all of them ones I checked.

I saw that earlier too, but it wasn’t on the coat hook post.

Getting the infinite Loading… again. Coincidentally (maybe not coincidentally) on another post about Schitt’s Creek.

So for this one, it was massively malformed HTML, e.g.

<a href="http://Unnecessary Inventions is the design project of Matt Benedetto based in Burlington Vermont. It create products that solve problems that don't really exist by creating products that no one is really asking for. Using diverse methods from 3D Printing, Sewing, Mold Making, and more, I create each unnecessary invention from my studio from idea to physical product. Each product is editorially shot to resemble a real marketing campaign for a product you can not get your hands on. The project explores creativity, experimentation with design &amp; processes, and pokes fun at the real products people will actually purchase online.

So when looking at these, perhaps do a view source and see if the HTML looks invalid or run a HTML tester on it:

You can hide all the warnings for sure:

All we care about is the errors, and often not all of them, but seriously malformed HTML will cause issues and should be reported / fixed on the BB side.

For this one, again, malformed HTML, e.g.

and <a href="http://Johannes Hemmerlein">Johannes Hemmerlein / Wikimedia Commons</a></em>

Going to the HTML validator and filtering out all warnings, we’re left with these errors:

@orenwolf Another infinite loading

The link on crime is the title of the article, not the url.

Thanks! I fixed this one, though better to ping @markfrauenfelder directly next time for his own articles. :slight_smile:

@Carla_Sinclair , the CNN link in this article is broken and it’s broken the BBS as a result.

This is meta, but not actually about the show full post button.

@codinghorror @sam and @ anyone else whom it concerns;

Is there any way to ‘opt out’ of the automatic continuation of our posts once they hit the comment limit of 5K?

I dig my Meme-versation thread, but I’d prefer to decide for myself if I want to continue another one, once the limit has been reached (which will be soon.)
