Recent Bug Fixes

Posted 6 p.m. Jan. 12 by alan

Hi all-- thought I'd let you know what's been fixed in the last few days.

  • EDIT: Fairly ugly browsing by language is now available.

  • Lots of minor cross-browser layout bugs. BTW, <4% of you are using Internet Explorer of any stripe, which makes me happy.

  • Problem with updated field. There is a little bit of usage info hooked onto the database row for each scrap. Changing this was interpreted as a 'hit.'

  • Some searches that resemble broken regular expressions screwed up the search term highlighting and caused a 500 error. I had to add a line of code to the alpha of Haystack to get this to work.

Coming soon:

  • Browsing by language and license, ranked by popularity

  • EDIT: Still coming: browsing by license

  • Basic version history

This comment box looks like it's too far from the above post. Also, it's too wide. Maybe make it 15px smaller from the right.

Because you're using AdBlock. Don't get me wrong, I don't really mind, but that's why.

I find it kind of worrisome that I seem to be the most prolific contributor and almost all other users have only one or two scraps each. Am I misunderstanding the purpose of this site, are they misunderstanding it, or are{user}/scraps/ URLs just prone to repeated errors?

You're doing just fine. But this is a beta that hasn't taken off yet-- there are only 300-something users. I wish they were all like you!

Hey Alan, I really want to start contributing some great C# and WPF snippets here, but I can't find the WPF category. I realize that the code language is in fact XAML, but I'm afraid people might not realize this when searching.

Maybe you should create a category called WPF?
