@Psnarf said in doc.qt.io Browser Cookies:
Browser not blocking cookies from qt.io, or doc.qt.io. Privacy Badger does label google-analytics as a tracking site, however. I'm sure you have your reasons for going over to the dark side. Google follows you everywhere, looking over your shoulder, recording everything you do. They have to pay me a lot of money before I give them information they then sell to target-marketing companies. I've been using the net since the early 90's, when google was a graduate student research project. Stealing information for sale to advertisers just to get rich is not a smart business model, yet nobody cares, even when google search manipulates the search results according to their personal agenda. But I digress.
As the old saying says: "you are barking at the wrong tree". We have nothing to do with that as we are just volunteers who are answering questions here. If you would like to have your opinions heard with regard to tracking on the documentation, you should contact the Qt Company.

@jpnurmi-0 we can change the email address attached to your original account if you prefer to the one you are using now, I don't believe there is any restriction there, would you prefer that? I can do the clean up around that then.
Yes please, I don't have access to the old e-mail anymore. :)
@JonB said in Losing edits in my posts:
This is not great :( So.... is there anything which can actually be done to get back to the forum where it used to work without any of these problems? It's all very well saying the upgrade was needed for "security", but months later we still have a dysfunctional forum in its place....
We already know what to try next, but this requires help from IT to get it right, I am waiting for input from them about it before I can try that. But it is not possible to downgrade and even then it might not help, the problem is mainly down to how we have set up our load balancing, it triggers the cache issue with NodeBB so we are trying to find the right settings that get it working without breaking the forum entirely. I have been able to confirm that it is the cause of the problem, but only the production one has the best way of showcasing the actual load so we have to be careful with making changes.
All said in the politest way, I know you are doing your best.... !
Thanks, I wish it hadn't gotten into this situation, but hopefully we will have this sorted out ASAP
And another thing/clue :)
I see another of my posts. I made it this morning, later edited it. On that PC it showed the edit.
Now from another PC it does not show the edit. Doubtless that will turn up in due course :) Yet strangely it does show the correct up-votes number, which have been made since the edit. So instead of right-post wrong-number of votes, I also get wrong-post right-number of votes!
Which perhaps means that there is separate caching for posts (edits etc.) versus votes, each cache being able to get out-of-date. Just thought you'd be fascinated to hear ;-)
And don't forget my "wrong font" half the time....!
FWIW, on my work machine, with super-duper Internet speed, after all was well all morning, it just changed over to serif font. In this case, a refresh immediately returned to serif (unlike from home where that took half an hour).
The point is, there seems to be something sensitive in this forum to failing to load whatever causes the font change to sans serif....
And this just happened again, and cleared again on refresh.
Slight clue to help track down: if I simply click to revisit the page (e.g. https://forum.qt.io/unread) the font remains serif. I have to do a reload/refresh for it to move correctly to sans serif. So something to do with caching....
@jonb said in Lobbying for a new "Qt WebAssembly" sub-forum:
I have only just figured what you meant. The icons against the forum names are characters in a font?! I assumed they were GIFs you lovingly designed for this forum!?
Yeah, I can't design at all, so if it were down to me they would be green circles :)
I see similar behavior on the recent page. Last reply preview on the right is inconsistent compared to the content of the topic and its position in the recent list.
"No one has replied" from recent page when there is already one or more replies when I open the topic.
Topic is first in list on recent page and last reply says it was several hours or days ago.
edit: Persist even after a refresh of the page

Can someone explain an equally simple way to the forums?
The only way I found was to scroll down a lot (until no more content is added when scrolling, or you just have to be faster than the browser), and there is a link.
EDIT: I would have looked under Resources, but no luck
Ah, same problem. Didn't see "Developers" in the top menu bar.
