Bug: Retrieving new posts while writing one (?)
« on: February 10, 2015, 01:57:01 pm »
I've taken a screen shot of the end result. It may be found here.

It would appear that SMF fails to retrieve both the template message (to tell you that while you were writing a new post has been added to the thread) and the body of the new posts. However, it is clearly still aware that there are new posts and the count of such posts.

Steps to reproduce this bug:

1 - Open up the long form reply page from a thread. Give it some content, even if it's just a single character, so it will not argue with trying to preview.

2 - Wait until you can be sure that there is a new reply between when you started writing the reply and now.

3 - Press preview. It should give you the error box and show posts with the new tag, but the posts and the error box are both empty.

If there is any way I can be of assistance, please let me know.

I've had this happen A LOT. I've found it pretty weird, and sometimes I would get it after I post a reply (so it acts as if I haven't replied and shows the blank boxes thus me double posting before I realized).
