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.

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”.

• CommentRowNumber17.
• CommentAuthorAlexisHazell
• CommentTimeJan 15th 2020

@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.

Is there a way to add captions to floating images?

As in the example here, consider a bunch of paragraphs, each flowing around a respective floating image.

Then how to put the source reference for the image (“graphics taken from XYZ”) right next to (below) the floating image, instead of it flowing with the other text?

Is this possible with the existing imagefromfile-functionality?

If not, I am requesting such a feature hereby! :-)

9. Yes, it was possible within the existing functionality of imagefromfile, and even documented at HowTo :-). However, the documentation did not really draw attention to it. Moreover, some care needs to be taken with the margin values to ensure that things look nice. I have now added some more specific guidance to the HowTo around this, and fixed the examples using imagefromfile at AdS-QCD correspondence. There are some graphics at this page in the second half of it which still do not use imagefromfile; I think this would be good to change, as imagefromfile ensures that the caption is correctly handled, also semantically.

Previously the caption did not allow a link within it. I have now made this possible. I also happened to notice whilst browsing the page that the nLab did not have styling for headers of depth h5; this is now fixed too in the same commit.

Thanks!! Nice.

Sure, I will change the remaining image inclusions to imagefromfile, too.

10. Hi, thank you for h6 again! I would bring up two things:

1. The compiler reformats when you jump over levels—I mean, when you type this

##

####

###

it becomes

##

###

##

I see the reason for this but it becomes inconvenient, when you want to reflect the structure of certain books like the Critique of Pure Reason.

2. Maybe the table of contents would become more compact, if the font-size (and spacing) of level h6 would be smaller.

11. Sorry again for my posting mess: As for troubles with h6. I don’t think that it is a feature that the “Theorem” shows up in the table of contents at HowTo#latex_syntax

Richard,

A clear example is now the entry determinant (which I just edited and saved, causing the problem to appear).

I see now that this is also what Daniel is referring to in #30 above.

• CommentAuthorRichard Williamson
• CommentTimeMar 16th 2020
• (edited Mar 16th 2020)

Yes, that must have been the reason I did not permit h6 originally. I will fix this as soon as I get chance one way or another. But I do not have the opportunity for the moment; perhaps this evening European time.

I have fixed this now, and re-rendered manually all pages edited since the changes announced in #26-#27 were made (hopefully I didn’t miss any).

Regarding point 1 in #29, thanks for raising Daniel, but for now I don’t think I’ll change this. I explicitly wished to disallow level jumping when I wrote the table of contents parser (for some pages there was a mess previously coming from the fact that it was not enforced), and I think probably it should still be enforced; in a book, one would never hop level for example. What you describe is, it seems to me, a corner case a) which would be solved if all intermediary sections from the book were named, and b) which does not seem disastrous to me even with the level hopping.

12. Regarding point 2 in #29, thanks again for raising. Yes, the table of contents does sprawl in some cases, it probably would be good to try to make it a little more compact one way or another. Not sure about making h6 smaller, but it is an idea. For now I’ll not prioritise this unless others feel that it should be acted on reasonably soon, but it’ll be listed here, and we can come back to it as time allows.
