Not sure if this has been mentioned or requested before. I use the mobile version of the site about 90% of the time and it would be really great if you could view likes and like posts without having to switch to the full site.

Booo! #DesktopsView4Ever. ;)

I'm sure that'll be on the list for the revamped site. The mobile version looks incredibly mobile (see new site thread).

Working fine on the test!



Check the link isn't some wacky mobile version, is probably your first step.

Can you post a link as an example so we can see if it's some sort of URL that isn't triggering the auto-display?

I noticed this happened on a link I copied the other day:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PqrQap86OJQ&feature=youtu.be

If I strip off the "&feature=youtu.be" it works fine.

That'll be it then! :)

Solution will be to kill that end part when posting links. Doesn't really serve anything anyway!

So....

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PqrQap86OJQ&feature=youtu.be <---BOOOO!

Remove the end of the link from the & - much success!

An update note, that a minor but annoying SSL amber warning is gone from the forum. It was seen on some forum threads where long time members had posted and their avatars - added to the forum several versions ago - weren't generating the HTTPS that the internet has a fit over. Mark's fixed it :)

So every thread will be like this now.

Dont use the YouTube provided video embedding links as the forum auto embeds the standard video URL (permalink). Embedded links always display text link. If it is a standard permalink and doesn't show the video then typically something is amiss with the the URL itself.

Not for me on Chrome Version 61.0.3163.79 (Official Build) (64-bit) on Mac OS Sierra v10.12.6 (16G29) as of 14:09 US EDT. If I click the Circled i Chrome tells me that the connection to the site is not secure.

Your connection to this site is not secure

You should not enter any sensitive information on this site (for example, passwords or credit cards), because it could be stolen by attackers.

It remains that way with my bookmark for the site because I'm not being automatically redirected to the https version. This is the case with my browsers Safari, Opera, Firefox, Samsung et cetera.
Upon some research:
The user would have to manually enter https and then change the bookmark URL. The other issue is a google search at least right now for me doesn't link you the https version of NSF and the forums. The user might have clear my cache and history if it doesnt resolve itself because it defaults back to the old http address.

A visit to https://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=32793 should stay secure now, but you are correct in that there is no auto-ssl redirect as of this moment (on the forum). That's something still being worked on but is on the todo list!

In the meantime, there’s always the HTTPS Everywhere extension for Chrome, Firefox, and Opera (does anybody still use Opera?).

Yes, people still use Opera.

Chris n'th time hint to not ask questions in an update thread but please 
1. quote,
2. copy,
3. open fitting discussion thread
4. open new reply and insert it there

gave me an idea:
Add a "quote in associated (discussion) thread" button to update threads (or any thread where an other thread would be associated to). This should automate the steps above with one simple click. So less questions in update threads, less work for admins to move posts around and less work for users would already did that. :D And only a bit work for the guy implementing it ;D

Yeah, that was around posts 670 to 693 in this thread.  :P

It seems the discussion lead to: doable but some work and not high in priority. Well maybe more people asking for something like it will help with the priority part ;D

I have been having a problem for weeks now with the site constantly reloading and disabling the back button. Initially it seemed to be associated with an ad at the bottom. Something about gadgets one click away. I could reload until some other add loaded instead and it would work. but as soon as that add reappeared the back button stopped working again.

That ad eventually went away but the problem is still there and happens almost every time I load a NSF page. I have had problems before and they were usually google ads at the bottom. But now I'm mostly not getting google ads and the problem has been going for weeks.

Using Firefox.

I think this problem is back.  Been having the problem for a day or two.

Woe be unto the user who leaves an NSF page up for more than a few minutes ....

IF it is a rogue ad, at the bottom, which is adsense, and thus localized and such (meaning it's rare any two people get the same advert) then it will either go away or (as much as it's almost disgraceful for me to say) use adblock (heck, you're L2, so absolutely no problem there!)

We have just tidied up the right side of the forum with the ads, removing some old things that we just needed to get rid of. And then there's the new forum to work on after we've got the new news site online.

PS Advertising opportunities are available :D

I use ublock origin with firefox and it definitely helps wunderground. Haven't noticed any difference with nasaspaceflight.
The browser consumes less cpu on just about all sites.(with ublock)
With ELV best efficiency was the paradigm. The new paradigm is reusable, good enough, and commonality of design.
Same engines. Design once. Same vehicle. Design once. Reusable. Build once.

Yes I'm having the problem as well. It does not appear to be a rouge ad at the bottom but who knows? It kinda makes the site impossible to navigate. Hope they fix it soon.

I'm gonna guess that it is the Novatech ad on the side that is doing it. It keeps reloading itself as a way of displaying different text. Kinda clumsy way of doing it isn't it?
