Pedia 5.9.1 Beta Bugs

Postby FineWine » Sat Nov 25, 2017 5:44 pm

HOW ABOUT WE JUST REPORT ALL PEDIA 5.9 BETA BUGS IN THE ONE TOPIC

1 - Previous versions if you hovered over links they appeared in the bottom status bar as the link or Filter by: ****** this no longer occurs.
    Known Bug: I have filed a bug with Apple to expose the mouse hover on the new API, I can't tell were the mouse is, not even on the click, doing some work around to create the menus, by looking at what Apple would have copied on the click. Think I can work around it with some Javascript, but would need to modify the templates, that I would like to avoid.
2 - When "Open links in an external browser" is selected (ticked) yes they do open in "external browser" but they also open in the "Details View" panel, NOT the pedia's full internal browser. To clear that bug you click on another entry.
    Fixed 88
3 - If in this process you select a text link it opens only one page/tab in the "external browser" BUT if you select a numerical link (imdb, asin, upc) the "external browser" opens the link twice then multiple other links to social media and other nonsensical links pages/tabs. This occurs in standard Detail View templates and the Extra's Templates.
    Fixed 88
OK that's all for now. Will continue testing DVDpedia & Start Bookpedia later.

5.9.1 Beta - Reproducible in Bookpedia, CDpedia and DVDpedia

When highlighting text in the viewer area, Cmd+C copies the Title instead of the text that was highlighted.
    Fixed 88
WORKAROUND: Right-click the highlighted text and select Copy.

EDIT Moderator FineWine: Verified - good catch
Also Edit > Copy & Select All are greyed out whilst Paste is not, previous versions the opposite was the case.
    Fixed 88

Like the idea of one central post. I have marked the items directly as I fix them or added info.

To keep things simple I am now only updating the build number, currently 88 while I work in a specific section like the details view. Once I move to a new section, I'll update the version number and can start a new post if necessary (if the thread gets too long).

Pushed DVDpedia to 89, with the Quotes change.

Do take time to come up for air and smell the roses with your family :D


Making sure to do so, 2 and 4 is such a good age, hence why this update has taken a couple of months longer to get done. :D

No crashes now, very fast,

Even more improvement in the pipeline. Hoping to move the image loading to be done in the background, the serach will feel faster if the image comes in as you are looking at the already delivered results. Although, I will need an animation for the image location, let the user it's still loading. So, not sure if it might be too distracting.

Yes all that would be great. Was nearly going to comment about the lack of speed in the search with its perceptible stop of the loading gear wheel icon during loading of info but thought it might be just the way things are with these huge sites these days but when I look at the speed of loading of Movie > IMDb > various results, I realised it was the images being the problem.

Thanks Conor - look forward to more improvements and the initial release of V6 with maybe some new surprises :D

In the Bookpedia beta, I don't have the problem of the software completely freezing when clicking on a book title with an Amazon url any longer, but I still can't get it to load the Amazon page. All I get is a spinning circle on a white page. I am able to click the "done" button and it closes the window and I can continue. If I right mouse click and choose "Open URL", that does bring me to the Amazon page and works like clicking on the book title used to.

Thanks,
