Richards asks that we report bugs in a single thread, and if discussion is needed start a new thread for each.

We have the issue of the link !-modality not rendering. Maybe because of the punctuation at the front. This was discussed here.

Then there’s the issue of consecutive links not always generating a space between them.

1. Thank you David! I will use this thread as the main place for keeping track of things from now. If it’s not here I may miss it :-).

Investigate use of max-width in mathematics CSS. Consider embedding DejaVu fonts. See here.

Re. #2, my guess is that the problem is that ! is used within Wiki-links by the !include and !redirects commands, so a page beginning with ! confuses the parser into thinking it’s dealing with something other than a page name.

There seemed to be an SVG problem here.

The “need to make an additional edit for uploaded file link to appear” issue is not new, but for tracking purposes, i’ve added it to the Technical TODO list.

Just to highlight that there is a problem with the rendering of edit announcements by user Ben in the thread on bicategories here

[edit: ah, seeing now that also my link above doesn’t render!]

All the comments are getting interpreted as plain text. Weird. Does that happen to me too?

My comment looks good to me.

2. The reason for #10 not originally rendering was that ’Text’ was selected as the format type. I have corrected this now. I suspect this was simply a case of Urs in a rush.

The comments in the other thread seem also to have been rendered in ’Text’ format, but I do not immediately see how that has happened. I will look some more.

3. Aha! It seems that the nForum ’Ben’ user is banned. This must cause comments to be rendered as ’Text’. I suspect the banned ’Ben’ is not the same as the nLab one, so I will try to fix this by deleting the old, banned Ben.

4. Fixed now by deleting the old, banned Ben and re-assigning the authorship of a few comments.

The page algebra over a monad seems impossible to edit: trying gives “500 internal server error”.

@PaoloPerrone, re. #16: I’m currently looking into this; thanks for reporting!

5. What happened in this case is that the page failed to be fully created. More precisely, for those familiar with the internal details, a row was created in the table ’pages’ but not in the table ’revisions’. This led also to the 500 error when carrying out a search.

I have now deleted the page, and re-created it: algebra over a monad. I did not have your attempted content available in an easily accessible form, Paulo (I have now tweaked the code so we would have the source available on a future occasion), so I must ask you to edit the page to put in the content. Fortunately, I believe you mentioned that you have a backup.

I will see if I can fix the root cause of this problem when I get a chance.

6. The page Critique of Pure Reason is impossible to edit giving the error:

An unexpected error occurred when rendering the page

On a different note:

As of this morning, I find that hyperlinks coded as

  [arXiv:hep-th/0206192](https://arxiv.org/abs/hep-th/0206192)


do not render properly on the nLab (it works here on the nForum!)

In fact, on the nLab also the escaped form as above does not render properly: the “](” bit gets removed, and that then also explains the bad rendering of the un-escaped form.

I have put an example with the problem in the Sandbox.

7. Re #20: Fixed now. See here.

8. Re #19: It seems possible to edit now, I guess it was probably the same root cause as that which led to #20.
