Unable to edit a post from last year

Editado: Fev 13, 3:52 am

I’m catching up on old reviews and I’m trying to edit one from October last year


but I am unable to open it when I click the ‘edit’ button. This happens both on my desktop and on my iPad using Safari. I can open recent posts (on my thread for this year) when I click the ‘edit’ button. I’ll try other avenues.

iMac Ventura 13.6.3 / Safari
updated: Ventura 13.6.4

iPad Air 4th generation iPadOS 17.2 / Safari

I also can't reply to messages in that topic, although I can reply to messages in its previous topic and edit topics of mine from that time.

>2 MarthaJeanne: Thanks for taking a look. At least it's not (or doesn't seem to be) just me.

I've updated my iMac but still no joy.

My guess is that, because the thread is failing to load fully (thanks to an image at https://www.brainscape.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/1600x1309_7011_Mushro..., the actions on the thread are unable to be done.

>4 kristilabrie: Thamks. Please can you tell me which post that’s in and I’ll try to remove it? If I can.

I actually tested this and the post did eventually load, I was able to click the reply buttons. It just takes a long time for it to load fully.

>5 humouress: I believe it's in message #10, next to "Downtime : Skulduggery Pleasant"

I don't know if it's the bad image that's the problem or just the fact of there being so many images it has to load on that page

It did take a while to load and I managed to change the image. Now I seem to be able to edit the other post.

>7 norabelle414: >8 knerd.knitter: I think it was that particular image. It doesn't seem to exist anymore on the original site that I got it from.

... or not. Maybe there are other images that I have to wait for to load ...

The thread loaded fine for me, just now. Maybe was that image?

>11 kristilabrie: That's a known limitation in Talk - none of the buttons (including edit and delete and the admin actions) work until the page fully loads - so if there was one taking forever, the thread is untouchable until it loads. It is usually very obvious on threads with a lot of images - but it is valid for any thread. :)

It is still loading for me at the moment - so something in there is still slow to load but I expect that when all of these time out or load, it will clear up.

I managed to edit the post that I wanted having deleted that image after waiting for the thread to load. After that, the thread seemed to work sometimes and not at other times ie load immediately or take a while. I'm assuming it was still settling down?

ETA: I just tried it now (in Safari on my laptop) and I could open the (same) post to edit pretty much straight away.

Lucy: Can we get CH to move the JS to the top of the page?

We were already doing that.
But I have made a couple of changes which should make long talk threads faster.
One change to our network infrastructure, another to img tags in talk threads.
We'll see if these fix the issue.
