  • Odd behavior after using "Restore" button on interrupted post

    Hi Joe, sorry to bother you. Environment is Firefox 94.0.1 on FreeBSD 12.

    I started to post to Forum > Model Railroad Forums > Startin' from Scratch > Kanthima's Scratchbuilt Structures page 6 ( ...railroad-line.com/node/40926/page6 ).

    I uploaded two pictures, typed some text. Then I accidentally closed that tab. I re-opened it from History > Recently Closed Tabs. My content wasn't there, but RR-Line displayed a red window with a button to Restore the content. I clicked Restore, which put back everything I'd typed and displayed the images. So I posted it. It looked OK to me.

    Then Pete looked at it, but couldn't see the images and said so. I looked from another logged-in browser, the post looked OK. But the images weren't shown to a browser that wasn't logged in. It just showed the ALT text in a box. I looked at the image URLs in that post; they are a different format than those I've uploaded before:

    Image hidden from everyone but me: ....railroad-line.com/filedata/fetch?filedataid=6140&type=full

    Image visible to all: ...railroad-line.com/filedata/fetch?id=973205&d=1637800846

    I've fixed it by re-creating the post, but I left the earlier post in place in case there was something you might learn from it. "It hurts when I do this? Then don't do that!" is an acceptable resolution.

    Related to this, the new topics from some of the forums are not showing up under the "latest activity" tab. I had to go navigate directly to "Startin' from Scratch" to see the list of new posts there (not just James' post but some others that I hadn't seen.)

      Dave, yes i was hoping the processor upgrade was going to help with this... seems as tho queries are timing out hitting the database thus causing the problem. there are a couple other fixes i have in my back pocket but haven't had time to try them out.. as i would want to do a full backup first...

      thanks for your patience

    no bother.. . very interesting tho... maybe it was a cached image on your computer ? resolutions are far and few between... im barely scraping by getting the day job finished for clients.. i suppose since you figured it out we are good for now !

    and btw your structures do look great !

    thanks for your patience
