Hey, how can I get Discourse to do X?


#1501

Out of the blue, literally… Having been on the Solarized Dark theme since its appearance, my phone autonomously switched to the Light & Bright large fonts theme. I’ve gone to settings and saved the Solarized theme several times now, and the preference page switches, but when I go to threads, wham, back to light and bright. Just started happening…

Edit: I figured it out. Never noticed this quick access to themes had been added under the hamburger menu. I must have accidentally tapped Light & Bright, and apparently that overrides your saved interface preference. Selecting my preferred theme there solved it.

I added that a couple of months ago. Didn’t know it overrode your saved prefs, I assumed it set the same cookie.


#1503

Is there some reason I’m getting “502 Bad Gateway” when trying to post in certain threads?


#1504

Jeff always said that discourse doesn’t handle extremely long threads well. That never caused us huge user facing issues (though I think they may have been beastly on the hosting front sometimes?). However, a recent discourse update really fucked em up extra special good, and now many of us can’t post in them anymore, necessitating new continuation threads.

Welp, I guess “Obamacare is the law of the land” is ready for a re-do then.

Discourse has been a real treat.

I really dislike the new way the notifications list slides out from the side if a finger strays too close to the right edge on mobile (or at least, Android Chrome). Dunno if there’s anything to be done about it, but I figured I’d kvetch.


#1507

Ugh, yeah, it’s pretty obnoxious. I keep mis-swiping stuff in from the left and right both.


#1508

Just updated again, maybe that will help with the 502s.

It’s rebaking every post with an image in it to add retina-quality previews, so that will hit performance a bit, but it nices the convert process so it shouldn’t use CPU needed for other processes. We’ll see how it goes.


#1509

Me too. I have no idea why sliding out would give me a list of my posts.


#1510

Still getting 502 errors


#1511

Posting is a bit slower for me. Bar on the bottom with saving for a second or two. Sometimes longer.


#1512

Nothing I can do about the 502s. If you find a very long thread is getting them, post a new thread and ask for the old one to be closed.

Post rebakes and image conversions will take a week or two, if I had to guess.


#1513

If you’re rebaking then I’d like biscotti too. Thanks.


#1514

Still getting 502s? I was never able to replicate myself.


#1515

Try posting in this thread: So I guess 2016 claimed its biggest victim yet - America


#1516

Yeah, i can reproduce it with that thread.


#1517

Yep, still brokety broke. Chrome FairlyRecentVerNumberCuzitsUpdatedByMyITDept on Win10 Edu


#1518

As usual, I can’t reproduce. Posts worked fine. But thanks for verifying the issue isn’t fixed. Wumpus is helping us debug in the discourse support forums but it isn’t looking promising at this point unfortunately.


#1519

Man, you know what would probably cut down the processing load of dealing with 11,000 posts all at once?

Well, it definitely does seem to be a problem with very long threads. If you start getting 502 errors in a long thread, post a new thread continuing it, put a link to the new thread in the old one, and report your post for a mod to close the old thread.
