"Notification" button

Sorry if this has been reported before but the notification button is not working on my machine.

I just get a thin white line on the screen when I click on it but it doesn't do anything.

Has this been reported before?

If anyone wants to look into it I can supply more details (I am a web developer by trade)

Tell me more about the thin white line on the top of the page - are you referring to PM notification or something else?

He is talking about clicking on the "Get Notification" button in a thread. It happens when clicking on the "Mark all as read" button on the home page as well. They have been broken for ages and yes it has been previously reported several times.
  

Dear Noah,
We could have sworn you said the ark wasn't leaving till 5.

Sorry for the delay in replying... yep that was the problem I was talking about.

if it helps at all, the following javascript error gets logged to the console when the button is clicked:

I have it too.

When I click on notification, I get a white box with light grey? border bout 3 mil by 40 mm appears center, top screen. It stays in the same place when I scroll up and down. Does not move with the rest of the frame when scrolling.

Id say its a message/text box that is not fully opening.

I would say its an issue with your browser and/or configuration - as it works fine in Firefox 15 - it shows the white box when I click the notification button, then I see a loading animation then  Adding Notification and then the word Complete and then the white box closes.

It works fine in Chrome eww and IE 9 - which browser and version are you seeing the issue (BB don't mention Oprah either) Grin

Yep I rolled back to an earlier version as there are numerous issues with 16 - flash plugin problems, crashing and other bizarre stuff happening.

I am seeing it in the latest version of Opera 12.1, Firefox 14.0.1 and Internet Explorer 8.0.6001. ALL of them have the issue.

My FF and IE may not be the latest versions but Opera IS standards compliant so webpages that don't work in it usually have some kind of issue.

Yeah especially with it throwing a javascript error I think there is something not right with the site.

Fordy if you click the button with console open does it still throw the JS error? Just wondering if it's a red herring.

Im using Chrome Version 23.0.1271.64 m and it does not work.  Smiley

It works correctly when I go into a board and do not open a thread.

I get the pop up box asking me if I want notification on any new posts to the board, but if I actually open a thread and click notification, the white line appears..

No warnings thrown - ran it through Firebug still no errors - odd. It works on the browsers I mentioned, from the forum, from the post list and inside the actual post  - velly odd

Oprah is just a laughable browser - worse than Chrome (sorry had to bite)  Grin Grin

Running for cover now....BB

I run the exact same version of chrome for testing purposes and it works fine - see screenshot. So I can't explain why it works in mine and not yours - I don't run any plugins in Chrome, its just the default download setup with no settings touched.

Adding notification -  You can also see I am in the post itself adding a notification.



Notification - complete



So am not sure what is happening.

OK how about I give you my username and password and you try and logon on your machine. That way if it still doesn't work we know it's something wrong with my account - if it does work we know it's my machines/browsers/etc.

Okay - thanks for that.

It would appear to be an issue with your account - as you say if I use your login then it doesn't work and we see the white line.

I will talk to Alan when he is back and see if we could find out what is happening.

OK thanks, would be great to figure that one out, I have to make comments on the threads I want to follow so I can use the checkbox in the text editor screen, then delete the comment!

Hi Alan
Sorry you're right the background is the same for the default & camo, for some reason I thought it had changed.
Have checked again and when set to 'forum default' the notification definitely doesn't work. When set to 'camo' it works fine.
Blackbunny and Headcase were having the same problem, they might be able to confirm whether it's something to do with the 'forum default' setting?
Cheers

I found the fault yesterday in the default template...  and confirmed it myself. As soon as I changed to camo it all worked. I have now corrected the fault and gone back to default and it all works fine....
Default is the same as camo just we need to have a default one....... anyone reading this could they advise if this problem exists in any of the other templates. ie waterfowl or highcountry
