This post will be a bit of a hodgepodge of items that are all related to the new site.
Twitter & Facebook
I will be working on testing images this afternoon – as they relate to sharing Balloon Juice on Facebook and Twitter. There are two reasons for mentioning this 1) to ask whether there might be 3 or 4 or 5 of you who are experienced with sharing sites on Twitter and and Facebook) and might be willing to test it out as I make changes this afternoon, and 2) to alert anyone who might already be sharing Balloon Juice posts on twitter or facebook that images that show up in social media for Balloon Juice will be changing this afternoon as we are testing.
If you are an experienced as social media sharing and are game to assist in this testing, please speak up in the comments or send email to watergirl at balloon-juice.com – thanks!
As of Friday afternoon, it appeared that we had all of these twitter issues resolved:
- Front pagers unable to embed tweets in front page posts
- Twitter embed issues for front pagers in comments (You are blocked!!)
- Twitter embed issues for commenters (You are blocked!!!)
We believe these issues were also resolved on Friday afternoon
- Images showing up as ? in a post
- Nyms sometimes not showing up in the reply box the first time you hit reply
- Occasional comments not showing up until you posted a follow-up comment or manually refreshed
- Back arrow not working as expected
Before we close the book on those issues, I am asking for confirmation from you guys that those are indeed fixed for you.
If you have experienced one or more of those problems since Friday at 7pm Eastern time, please let me know that, too. Please include specific information about the device(s), operating systems and browsers where any of the specific issue might still be occurring.
Thanks to everyone who has been clicking on Site Feedback and either submitting feedback or reporting a problem. I really appreciate it. I read every one as it comes in, and I tend to follow up immediately if I have a follow-up question or there is a quick answer. Other than that, I prioritized based on fixing things that affected the most people. Today and tomorrow, I will be making a second pass through everything that has been submitted so far.
Edit: I had out-of-town company here on this weekend, so while I was checking email and Site Feedback submissions, I wasn’t able to read Balloon Juice, so I am not up-to-date on anything the was in the comments.
