Little bugs on the forum

In safari on an iPad, sometimes opening a discussion shows me the text half cut and with a grey bezel around it






Reloading the page shows me for a fraction of second the full text, but it goes back immediately to this state. This happens in both Mobile or Desktop version.



And writing this report made me remember of a couple more shenanigans, so I’ll add them all here:

Every time I push the return button, the first word in the new line gets written with an apostrophe before it, forcing me to go back every single time to cancel it (this seems more a thing with the iPad keyboard, but it’s happening only in NI forum, so I report it)





And more: trying to add tags is impossible on iPad: selecting the line to write never makes the keyboard pop up, so it is impossible to write there (nor paste anything, I tried this as a workaround but with no success)







And last one: adding a picture and making it smaller and aligned to the left always makes the next point to write (I don’t know how to call it) go beside the picture (which could be useful sometimes to write beside it). To go under the picture itself and continue writing there I have to push return many time until the indicator is under in a new line. As I said this could be useful sometimes, but I suspect it’s not the expected behavior











If I understood correctly the roles in the forum, is @Kaiwan_NI who is taking these kind of things in consideration, so I tag her. Maybe you are interested, maybe not. But without these little inconveniences the experience on the forum would be way better 😉

    Oh..one more (writing this makes all the bugs come out of their lair 😂)

    When I posted the previous comment, the formatting of the text gets all messed up (this is happening to me for the first time (maybe it knows I’m writing about these kind of things 😂)

    How it posted it:

    How it is when I edit it:

    Now I go back and edit it to make it easily readable 😉

    I"ve noticed a bug too 😂

    But in the end it doesn't matter... it is what it is. 🙈 It's all in good fun.

    Sometimes - just know again - the Building with Reaktor button linked me to the NI product page.

    A step back and the button again I reach the right one.

    Someone solved the bug - thanks.

    Another issue, strangely happening only with links to your own site:

    when adding a link to a NI site page, until you add the link and post immediately everything is ok:






    But as soon as you push enter to continue writing under it (or to make the link “preview” load):

    And another strangeness is that once you published a post, you can edit it, but the images inside of it become uneditable or even worst indelible

    Hi @LostInFoundation I reported the issue with apostrophe, the tag issue on iPad, and NI websites being flagged for security check to the forum provider now.

    As for the text appearing in a grey bezel, it could be that the OP put the text in a code block by mistake when creating the post? I saw a bunch of posts like this that we need to manually change to a regular text.

    About NI website being flagged: with @Mutis we discovered it is happening only (I think) with links to support articles, not with “normal” products pages (if it can be useful)

    • Links to support.native is still not fixed. After month and promises from two different NI employees. It's embarrassing.
    • Links to website that don't allow robot.txt have a similar problem. For example https://www.google.com/search?q=native+instruments will result in: 

    As a user I don't care. It should automatically fall back to just showing the URL then.

    • Pasting multi line into a quote will result in only the second line being formated as a quote. I always have to paste first, then make that into a quote.

    Oh wow. This thread is soft banned. New post in it will not make it go to the front of the sub forum any more.


    Christ on a bike. We report bugs and this is how you treat us? Why should we even bother?

    And its not the first time. My thread about spam in forum also got soft banned.

    @lord-carlos that’s the way with NI: WE think to help them, THEY take everything as a critic or a personal attack.

    The only help they want is us doing their job solving other users problems…everything else is seen as an interference…

    @Kaiwan_NI can we get a statements why threads like this get soft locked / banned? It's demotivating.

    If you want feedback in another way, tell us. But this cloak and dagger way is bizarre at best.
