Missing Comments « on: May 23, 2021, 12:46:05 AM » Author: wide-lite 1000
I just noticed that certain comments on several topics seem to be missing . All of the member's info is still visible on the left side and the member's signature line is still present but the actual text of the member's comment is blank .

 For example , Bulbman256's comments here : https://www.lighting-gallery.net/index.php?topic=11407.0
 and several different member's comments here : https://www.lighting-gallery.net/index.php?topic=11464.15

 All I see in each example is the member's signature line and their info on the left . the remainder of the comment box is completely blank as if no comment was typed .

I was noticing that as well! Even when quoted, they're still blank.

Well hopefully one of the Admins can figure it out . I've never seen this before !

 EDIT : This bug seems to be in the Forum portion only and is scattered throughout DOZENS of different topics on most all of the topic boards .

Maybe it's a side effect of the changes Patrick added to the voting/rating system. It seems like when something is changed on the gallery, there always seems to be a side effect.

This issue also seems to be affecting my PM inbox, particularly messages from Mandolin Girl and Desultory. Interesting.  :wndr:

That pretty much sums up what it’s like to work in IT, especially in the programming/development sector.  ::)

I was seeing the same thing, I also decided to check my inbox to see if I could find any blank messages there, and found some from Dave (Silverliner) and Patrick that had gone blank.

One trend i'm starting to notice is that messages that had quoted now broken messages seem to become broken themselves, which makes me wonder if there's a keyword that causing it to happen.

I've noticed this as well, although I don't think it's anything to do with the changes to the voting system as that's just on the gallery and the forum is a different program. But in case he's not aware, I'll bring it to Patrick's attention.

Oops, I switched the charset from ISO-8859-1 to UTF-8 in order to fix special characters in the home page gallery comments, and that seemingly caused this issue.  UTF-8 ls a larger character set, so I was surprised it'd have that effect, but apparently it did.  I've changed it back.

We've switched to Unicode again, hopefully correctly this time.  Let us know if there are any further issues.
