Eleven Warriors has a new look and tech stack today! That's great, but there will surely be bugs. If you find one, please report it here. Try to include as much information as possible:

  • How do we reproduce?
  • What device/browser are you using?

Thanks!

First thing I notice is that the top banner bar is quite wide & cuts off the top of the main page. In the below screen cap it is scrolled to the top.

Strange. Just tested iPad landscape, which is 1024 and the search box fits into the bar. We'll have a look.

Also, lol at posting a screenshot of the dimensions. Be sure to view page source for a surprise.

I am having the opposite problem where there is a large gap at the top of the page between the black bar at the top and the rest of the content.  Chrome on Windows 7.

Are you running ad-blocker? If so, shame on you (and that's why you see a gap).

Haha it is at work and they might run that stuff automatically.  I'll check again when I get home...

I noticed on the post by Gray Box in the Ohio State football forum, there is no way to upvote or downvote the O.P. Is that by design or just an omission?

I am curious what the logic is behind this.  Could you not just make a bunch of blog/forum topics of nothingness just to gather helmet stickers?

Loving the new site. Looks incredible on my desktop. On my G2, the display is cut in half and won't let me zoom out to display the full page.

Edit: Also have no format bar to insert my screen capture. Will send it over to my desktop and add from there.

Jason Priestas's picture

Weird. Landscape or portrait? Or both?

Bucks's picture

Both to differing degrees. On landscape, I get more on the display but the buckshots/voting/forum is cut off. Can zoom in but cannot zoom out or scroll over to see. Going to try another browser to eliminate that part.

Had to send the pic to you direct, couldn't get the upload to function on here.

Jason Priestas's picture

On mobile devices, the sidebar stuff is moved to the bottom of the page. Please check there.

Yep, found that. Thank you. Anything I'm missing to get the above format/font/insert picture bar to show on my mobile commenting?

Unfortunately, the editor does not work on Android at this time. I know they're working on a fix.

Having the same issue. I'm using my iPhone with chrome FYI. I can scroll if I literally press and hold, but if I want to flick and scroll quickly it doesn't seem to want to do that. 

Sauce Bauss's picture

I have the same scrolling problem with my IPhone 5. The scrolling is smooth on the homepage but when you get to the forums and posts the scrolling is choppy and slow. 

NW Buckeye's picture

Scrolling on Safari on both my iphone and ipad locks up or slows with any graphic. Chrome  seems better, but not smooth.  

NW Buckeye's picture

Jumped over to my laptop to complete my post.  As I said, I was having trouble on my iphone.  Safari is locking when I scroll through and your graphics appear.  Today's skull session is a good example.  The graphics seem to be loading in full mode, causing Safari to slow down or just freeze.  I have an iphone 5 with the latest operating system update.  Also doing so on my ipad - a original version with the software upgraded as far as it will go.  Switching over to Chrome, the problem is eased a bit, but the graphics are really slowing down the display. 

You seem to be relying on the device/browser to resize your graphics, but they are still coming through large enough to cause problems.  The skull session logo caused both devices to crash when it was displayed in Safari.  Chrome continued to function, but the scrolling was severely impacted. 

Doc's picture

The scrolling on my iPad is very bad as well.  I just realized that it will scroll very easily in the articles, but once I hit the comments is when it gets very choppy. The more comments in a thread the worse it gets. I am also having problems getting the reply arrow to work. I have to pound on it for it to work

the site looks wonderful. I'm sure the bugs will be worked out quickly

Poison nuts's picture

As people above have stated, it's very difficult to scroll on an IPad. I'm using Safari & the lasted Apple OS. Going over comments is particularly tough as it will barely move & locks up often.

brandonbauer87's picture

Now that this thread has so many more comments, I can't scroll at all. The only way I could even post was to go Fitz's account and go directly to his comment. Before it was just laggy, now it acts like I'm touching and holding when I swipe. Every touch highlights a section. 

I_Run_The_Dave's picture

On my Droid4 using the default browser, the scrolling is always smooth (other than the titlebar being choppy as I scroll).  However, once a thread reaches a certain amount of comments (or GIFs), the browser just quits on me.  It used to do that from time to time on the bigger threads on the old site, but it seems like it happens much quicker on the new.  Overall, though, the mobile experience is much better, as I don't have to zoom in to be able to read anything, and I can keep the phone in portrait instead of being forced into landscape just to be able to read.  Less eyestrain on mobile as well.

hodge's picture

Same problem here.  In addition, pressing the top of the Safari browser on my iPhone 5S doesn't bring me back to the top of the page, which runs contrary to its usual behavior.

AndyVance's picture

You just hit on my two biggest problems with the new design. The top-tap feature not working is pushing me to consider running Chrome as my browser (I had used Chrome on my MacBook, but switched back to Firefox last year because Chrome was feeling a little buggy).
 

FitzBuck's picture

Something I just noticed I can scroll normal on the black area on the left of the screen but not over comments.  If I hit the navagation button in the top left and leave it open to scroll down is what I meant)

Another - if you try to change part of a post you can't jump to the middle of a comment.

Having the same problem with editing

I have had this on both the old and new site from iPhone and iPad.

I'm a hurtin' buckaroo.

BuckToAsT's picture

Staff:

Any word on this editing issue? I primarily access this site on my phone or ipad, but the issue is so severe for me that I haven't even bothered posting much lately. 

If I scroll up or down on the screen when I'm typing words, or if go back to edit an earlier portion of my post, the keyboard stops registering (other than the delete/backspace).

I only began experiencing this problem when the new site launched, though I see others may have had this problem with the old site. 

 

Thanks! 

CALPOPPY's picture

While not ideal, the only way I've remedied the situation is to close the keyboard and reopen the keyboard and choose the typing spot again...sometimes a couple/few of times. It beats having to retype the entire comment.

Funny part is that you can always delete. You just can't type anything new.

But I had this problem on the old site and thought it was just me. I never reported to the site (which now realize I should have).

I am using IE 11 and I can't post pics unless I put the site on the Compatability View List.  When I do that, however, the home page display becomes huge and banners are cut off.  I guess I can put the site on the CVL when I want to post a pic and switch back after, but that would be a pain.

I tried CTRL+- but it didn't help.  Everything was still cut off, only smaller (when the site is on the Compatibility View List). When I remove the site from the CVL, it's fine.  Except, of course, the fact that I cannot post links, pics or embedded media wthout the site being in the CVL. Vicious cycle.

I had the same issue on Google Chrome. Refreshing fixed it though. Also in the comments, the font changes every once in a while. Some of the comments will be the same font then it will get larger and darker for later comments. Again, once I refreshed, the issue went away.

I_Run_The_Dave's picture

A couple issues:

When clicking on "Football" at the top, on a laptop, it looks like the descending order by date is not followed completely.  The top article is the OSU defacing of the Clemson statue, posted December 16th.  In addition, you would expect the top three on that page to match the three that appear when you hover over "FOOTBALL" but this isn't the case.  Basketball and Recruiting seem to work ok.

On my phone, in portrait orientation (it's a DROID4 using the default browser), the top bar scrolling is choppy...  as I scroll it jumps around, but once I stop it ends up on top correctly.  This seems to be more of a problem on content pages, like this morning's skull session.  The main site page did not have this issue.  I also noticed that when I tap the "menu" button on the left of the top bar, the link highlighting is slightly off of the image of the button, but this only happens on the main page, not content pages.  The website also loads somewhat slowly on my phone, but that's probably because it is image intense, and my 4G cuts out in my office building, so that's probably mostly to blame.

Other than that, site looks great.  People already hate me for not allowing BUCKSFAN to change his icon again, but eh, I was impatient this morning and was excited.  Keep up the good work :)

Unky Buck's picture

When clicking on a comment from someone else (or even my own) or after I post a comment, it shows the subsequent post below that comment. It's not like scrolling up is an issue, but if I try to link to a comment in another forum and it shows up with the comment below it, that might be a little confusing (and possibly off topic lol).

cronimi's picture

Looks like long post titles are being truncated: On the homepage, the post about Pantoni has its title truncated to "Mark Pantoni: The Mastermind Behind Ohio". Unless Brady Hoke has hacked 11W, it looks like there is a 2-line max set on post titles on the main page, and long titles may run 3-4 lines. (I'd post a screencap, but I can't figure out how to post a picture that doesn't have an url.)

Also, I used to have a spellcheck function in 11W comment boxes. I still get the red squiggly lines under words, but right-clicking no longer gives suggested spellings, only Paste (or Cut|Copy|Paste if a word is selected). Not sure if that is a function of 11W or my browser.

My user icon is weirdly formatted next to my posts (looks extremely zoomed in)

  1. On a Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 (built in browser), the comments go past the right barrier.
  2. Also, I have a next button to move to the next field after I put in my username, but it doesn't take me to the password field.  No problem with this when I'm on a desktop.
  3. I like the old highlighting new comments, but can you at least put a white/black border around new to make it pop more?  Maybe make "NEW" bigger and overlap on the right and bottom of the user image.
  4. I really miss 11W.com/tracker.  It's nice that you can look in each particular group/forum and see it, but at least more new topics would be great.
  5. You can't post images as your signature anymore, unless they come directly from a link.
  6. I like how there's a tracker in the forum.  Is there any way we can get a list of unread comments for football/basketball/recruiting?  Or even a second icon telling how many total and unread comments before we enter the article?
  7. Not all modify text options work, more so in quotes: bold, italics, underline, strikethrough.  Underline also doesn't have an icon.

Small thing.  Using Firefox on a PC, I have to wait for the "mouse-over" drop down menu to see my profile at the top right, instead of just clicking on my profile name or image.  If I click, it does nothing and have to move again to get the drop down menu to come through.  Same goes for my iPhone, where I cannot access my profile information on the left (can click football, basketball, recruiting, etc. but cannot get into my profile).

Can't post a screenshot, but on mobile (iPhone 5s on LTE), much of the content is cut off. For example, under meet the dream 14 post, the players bios are cut off and measurables are stacked on top of one another. You are only able to view 2 of the 4 star ratings as espn and scout are cut off. 

Also the scrolling is EXTREMELY slow throughout the site. It actually locks up and crashed either chrome or safari in many cases.

Not a bug, but I liked clicking on an article/forum post/etc and seeing the different color for "new comments" that I haven't read already.  I know there is a "NEW" next to the comment, but it's faster when it's in a different color/format.

Anyone else noticing that the recent posts on the right hand side have stopped updating by putting the most recent at the top?

As others have noted, very difficult to scroll within a forum on iPad/iPhone due to freezing. I could not send my forum comment on my iPad, had to switch over to PC. 

Also, unable to log-in on iPad while in Landscape. Could be user error, but it wouldn't allow me to click user name. Worked fine when I switched to Portrait. 

I don't know if it's by design, but the default sorter in forum is to sort by number of replies rather than most recent reply. Every time I switch it manually it's switched back to default the next time I try.

Have to be honest.  I really do not like the mobile site as it is, at least for Andriod.  Getting to the sidebar stuff at the bottom of the page is a huge pain especially if there are a large number of comments.  I still haven't figured out how I can get to my account page.  It seems like the top left pulldown menu should allow this, but pressing my screenname or icon doesn't do anything.  Navigation is really clunky and not as intuitive as it used to be on my phone.  

I can't even get the desktop version of the site from my phone (S4) when I request it.  I'd really be happy if I could just get that to work.

The link to your account on mobile devices not working is a bug that has been reported.

Using IE 8 and when hovering above the links (footballm basketball, etc), the words at the bottom are all mixed together and hard to read.

Also, it seems as if the commenting box on some of the blogs are a little weird. It outlines a box I am supposed to type in (not a big deal, but I don't imagine that is they way it is supposed to be).

Your "Eleven Warrio" is missing an R on it.

Looks like things are a little harder to find now, would be nice to have short cuts links on the front page (similar to last site page).

Good looking site so far, but it is a little to hard to get to where you want to go without navigating through two and three pages to get where you want to go.. And the little bug fixes sure would be nice to have fixed :-) Keep up great work guys!

Having issues with IE 8, and whatever version of Safari on iOS 7.0.4.

A few examples include:
-Not being able to type in a comment box. Sometimes it just freezes up.
-If I do not have my window maximized in IE, basically nothing resizes with the window so it becomes nearly impossible to navigate (yes, I know I shouldn't be using IE but sometimes you are limited by your work computer).
-Script stops running - this may be my internet, not entirely sure.
-As others have noted, sometimes the pictures or skull session logos are in odd places - I would assume that's not by design.

Not so much bugs as design requests but here a couple things I've noticed:

1) Buckshots and polls don't show comment counts

2) Can the article author info be moved to below the graphic/pic at the top, like it should go title-picture-author info/twitter link-article text instead of title-author-picture-article.

3) the right side of the screen is blank like half the time. Either have the text expand over after the stuff on the side ends, as it is all up at the top and once you scroll down passed that it just stays empty, or have the stuff at the top (recent posts/most commented) drift down with the scroll maybe? Fill it with ads even really, it just seems like 1/3 of the page is empty

Not sure if this is a bug or intentional, but quoted text is in a medium gray, which, against the slightly lighter gray of the background, can be challenging to read. As the text is already indented with a red line in the left margin, indicating it is a quote, is a different text color necessary? [EDIT: I'd prefer just black text in all cases. It is far easier to read, which after all is the goal, right?]

I don't think your contact us link works.  I sent you a message this morning (actually 2).

First Message:  All,

 

I understand the recent comments issue and advertisers.  It's a business and I'm a capitalist, trust me.  I would offer that with the recent comments we were able to see not only forum comments, but Skull Sessions, Buckshots, Blog Post etc.  If a comment was made, no matter where, it showed up.  Now there is no way to see all the updates unless you go to the Skull Session, a specific blog etc.  Lets use the concept for the forum and tweek it.  Make a recent comments page that lists the topic and who made the comment.  We would then know what pages/forums/Buckshots etc were being commented on and by who on one simple page, but there would be no commentary to scare off advertisers.

 

Sleep on it, give it a thought.

2nd Message:

I just sent you a message, but the home page said it failed to send, then underneath it said my e-mail was sent successfully.  I received a copy of my e-mail, but am curious if you received my message.  Can you reply to this message?  If you don't, I think you have another bug.  You won't know it, obviously, but you do.

 

Thanks.

 

(now Earle or some other smart alec will respond that they did receive it but are simply ignoring me, but I like to believe they wouldn't do that to me.  And I keep telling myself that too)

Earle's picture

Maybe if you quit whining about Recent Comments, your emails would be taken a little more seriously.  

Seriously, though, we've made what I think are a couple of reasonable suggestions on how to preserve a feature that many seemed to have found an important tool in navigating the site and, perhaps more importantly, in fostering the dialogue that has helped make 11W such a great place to hang out. 

Jason and the staff are good people, and have undoubtedly put a ton of time and effort into the redesign.  I'm sure they've heard our pleas.  Let's trust them to make the tweaks that are warranted, or at least give them a chance to explain why they don't feel the issue needs to be (or can't be) addressed.  I think they've earned a little time and leeway in that regard.  I, for one, will try to refrain from beating the drum for a while.

Just say no to italics abuse.

I must have imagined it.  Sorry.

Forget Recent Comments, I do not like the fact that you can now edit comments that have been replied to, thereby making a perfectly good retort seem out of context (like this one).

Just say no to italics abuse.

Oyster's picture

You seem on edge lately?

(and it wasn't that good of a retort)

Earle's picture

Of course you wouldn't think so.

We could go on like this forever.  Maybe I can close the loop by saying that you are like the annoying little brother I'm glad I never had.

How were you two able to carry on this conversation?  I can't seem to keep track of recent posts.

I would just like to point out that I have no use for the "Most Commented Post"  that just means to me, well there is nothing new I could add in there.  Why do I care that 220 folks commented on Monday's Skull Session?  Is this supposed to make me want to re-read it?

 

Thanks again for the great content on this site.

We text each other after we post so the other knows that he can then respond.

In all honesty, it's not as easy to do, but if you check your account you can see if somebody replied to a post you made, and if you know what threads you are posting in, go to the forums page under Active.  There will be a NEW tag for posts by somebody else, and nothing if you made the last post.  Hope this helps.

I guess I should have used italics there.

Thanks for that, Chief, that does seem like a good idea.

Hey, wait, I've got a new complaint.

The three focus stories right now, you can't read half of the text.  You need to outline the white in a different color, or take a closer look at the images you select.

Earle's picture

You're on the wrong thread man.  This one is for idle banter.  And if you want to talk about Recent Comments, that's OK, too.  Just don't complain about it.  We're done with that.

Should I be getting a text box when I make a comment?

toad1204's picture

OK...  Told the IT guy what I was up to and am now running IE11.08.  Cant post pics/ gifs from it though.  When I click the image box and I put in the web address for the gif/pic that's as far as I can go and when I hit cancel/ OK nothing happens

You should have asked for IE10.  People complain about 11 a lot.

This may be an issue already identified here but I was unable to find it.  I apologize if so.

The "top three stories" at the top of the main page are cut off on the mobile site (similar to the way the banner ads are cut off).  Only about 1 and 1/2 of the photos show.  So, I can't see or access the third story.  There appears to be no way to scroll right.

Issue is both on the Android browser and Chrome for mobile.

Is there any way we can get quotes at the top of the main page back?  I miss seeing, "We're stretching!  And you're a kicker!" everyday.

Nicholas Jervey's picture

The quote is at the bottom of every page. If you're willing to scroll, you can see it every day.

Yeah, but, I meant at the top of the page.  *Eyes dart back and forth.  Walks away quickly.*

Thanks.

Suggestion:  Would it make sense for Jason or one of the other staff members to create a new forum topic that is locked for commenting, that maintains a list of currently known bugs?  You could also put any other developments that are in the works there.

Supposedly the new format gives the staff more flexibility on what they can do from a technical standpoint.  Does this include the ability to make certain posts "sticky" in the forums?  So that they always appear at the top?  This suggested post would be something that could be stickied in the "Site Stuff" forum.  Nearly every message board or forum I have ever been on has this capability, and programmatically shouldn't be difficult (add a sticky indicator field to the forum topic header table of the site database, and add it to the front of the order by clause of the SQL that retrieves forum topics).  You'd still need to add a mechanism to indicate topics that are "sticky", and you'd need to give staff members and moderators the ability to mark them as such.

Crimson's picture

Birm sticky's things in the recruiting forum (see <Direction> Ohio Recruiting posts).  We also had this on the old site (2013 offers, etc.)

The first sentence wasn't meant to be graphic, but I'll let it ride.

I apologize if someone has already asked this, but I can't figure out how to access my profile on mobile platforms. I have iPhone and iPad and the problem persists on both. I wonder if anyone else is experiencing this? Thanks

Someone tell me what it says on the Larry Johnson Photo on the main page.  Please use a shadow on your font.  It looks like a third graders powerpoint presentation.

I just discovered one more issue with iOS. On my iPhone I was trying to respond to a comment and scrolling down to find it, the site is very unresponsive to scrolling. All the other programs/sites are very responsive to scrolling except 11W. The first time I assumed it was a network issue. This time i figured out it was not the network. Anyone else experience this? 

Crimson's picture

When I move my window to a smaller width, the top bar doubles in size, as the search box moves to a new line, covering up other features of the site (including in My Account, can't see view/edit; also, it's spelled "My account" while the second word is capitalized for Forum Topic and Blog Post but not Log out).

Also, when I search for "bug" or "tracker" or "bug tracker" I don't get anything.  I only get a result if I search for "bugtracker."  The bottom of all of these words are also cut off in the search box.

Help!  The border is too big!

Jason,

whatever it is you guys have done, the site and specifically the scrolling on the IPad seems to be much more responsive. Thanks so much!

If you insert a picture with a mouseover including a colon, the colon and everything before it will not display in the mouseover.

May I ask why the login box is so big? Why not have a smaller box appear just below it (instead of having it take the whole top of the page)? My apologies is this was already covered.

I keep seeing in comment threads where one person uses italics for their comment it makes all the rest of the comments appear in italics. It is happening right now in today's poll comment section about Rutgers/Maryland.

iPad-related bug: When in landscape orientation, the drop-down menu under the user's profile picture/username in the top righthand corner does not hover long enough to actually allow the user to click on one of the menu options. The drop-down works fine in portrait orientation on the iPad, and I have not noticed the same issue on iPhone. Odd, right?

The only problem I had was with the sign up process.  The captcha question asked something to the effect of which state is Ohio States biggest rival in, my answer was TSUN, and I got denied.  I really don't think it expected me to type in that terrible word m$&@#%^+

Yeah I've had the same problem. For example, I'll click on a thread and then go back to the main forum page and it will say there are still 100+ new comments.

Seattle Linga's picture

Still an issue and then sometimes it cleans itself up but then toggles back and forth on the forum posts. Hopefully a writer can lend some help. 

One Bad Buckeye's picture

This isn't a bug, more of a suggestion/request.  I was perusing the football roster and noticed that it's only organized in order of jersey number.  It would be awesome if I could click on one of the categories in the top row (Position, Name, Height, etc.) and have it automatically re-organize the list.  

For instance, if I wanted to see the list organized by position I could just click on "POS" and it would automatically lump all of the players into position groups.  

I know 11W is always looking to improve, I thought this might be a simple add-on.  Then again, I'm not a techie in the least bit.  

Regardless, thanks again for the awesome site guys.

I am sure it's been mentioned on here but with almost 300 comments - color me too lazy to read em all. 

Question - are you looking into the option of seeing how many people are on line at the current time and who has logged on in "real time?"

Crimson's picture

I've noticed in several articles that the font size varies from sentence to sentence.  See here for an example.  Maybe you can build in a default style or let all of the writers know.  (When I paste to word, it says they are different fonts as well, but only in IE.)

Is the functionality to search Forum posts gone?  It used to work, but now when I use the search bar it only pulls up articles written by the staff.
