"This message is missing"
#1
Okay, over the past day or so (since the upgrade), I've had a number of users reporting errors of the form: 

Quote:This message is missing. Please enter a message.

Obviously, this is very annoying, and I'd like to resolve it as soon as possible. If you've run into this, can you please post here to let me know? Any information you provide would be appreciated; for example:

 
  • Did you get it when posting a thread, posting a reply, or editing a post?
  • Where you were making your post?
  • What was the content of your post?
  • If you tried again, then did it happen again?

Hopefully we can resolve this soon!

For me, it's typically when replying, especially when quoting something.

Well, the good news is that I *may* have found a cure. 

As part of the upgrade to MyBB 1.8.18, several JavaScript files (including the ones that handle validation for threads and posts) have been updated. However, I believe the old versions (which won't work with the updated software) were still in the CloudFlare cache - and, therefore, certain users were still being given the old versions. When this happened, it'd lead to the error described in the opening post. 

I've purged all of these old JavaScript files from the cache now. So, hopefully, the issue will be resolved (otherwise, I guess I'll have to keep looking for a fix :P )

Nope. Still doesn't work. Heck, the message disappears when you hit the preview button. Headdesk

Another thing not working, once you've added an attachment, it doesn't let you insert it no matter how many times you mash the button. :headbrick:

I've had it happen a couple of times that I've quoted someone and written out a response and it's only saved the bit I originally quoted. Which meant I had to edit the post and rewrite everything. This might be a related error?

It is. I literally just had to fix such an error with this exact post :lol:

You know, I was going to report this first when I suddenly got blank posts from @ Pyrite and @ JHG recently, even though they quoted me. It also happened in PMs also. Hope this can be fixed soon.

This! As in what I'm quoting will appear but what I write won't.
I've just been double posting and letting it merge.

It's only happening on my phone though.

When posting from PC, like I am now, it's all good.

Well, the attachments seem to be working for me:


.png   150828_forumnew.png (Size: 4.07 KB / Downloads: 87)
.png   150828_readonly.png (Size: 3.6 KB / Downloads: 87)

Still, that's another area that was updated in MyBB 1.8.18 - so, I'd expect it not to work with outdated JavaScripts. 

Anyway, if clearing the CloudFlare cache didn't solve this problem, then that's a pain -_- . Though, the fact that it's only certain users running into this (and, in particular, the fact that MegaphoneStallone is only getting this problem on his phone) does suggest that it's some kind of cache issue. So, perhaps it's worth clearing your cache, or doing a hard refresh (CTRL + F5) while you're in the posting screen, in case there's a cache issue on your end?

If it is a cache issue, then there's really nothing more that I can do :( . However, it should resolve itself over time as people's cached files expire or get cleared. Though, just in case it isn't, I've tried re-installing the text editor to see whether that will help.
