! No longer available
« on: February 01, 2017, 09:54:00 PM »
Seen that often enough now to "complain". E.g. some Youtube thing which is "! No longer available".
Ridiculous solution: Me clicking "Quote" and copy-paste the URL from out of comment source code into a new browser window.

Those URLs seem all to be http, and my browser just redirects to good https - something the forum software can't process and instead produces "! No longer available".

Sorry, Martin, I don't know how to fix this. I'll ask DungeonMaster one of these days.

I believe that when you click the 'no longer available' the video is opened automatically.

After a while the video frame shows up for me, but not right away.
Compare, compare, compare

Seems to be one of those inconveniences of computer tech evolution. (Like the painful transition to UTF-8/Unicode letter coding.)

I managed somehow to shrink me edit/post/reply menu to the point where it accepted no input.

The work around seems to be to engage the [toggle view] icon, stretch the screen to a usable size, then input, preview and post as normal.
The downside is that the default [view] is still an unusable single line that accepts no input or modification.

Logging off and turning off my computer did no good. I searched the help section without success. While this is far from an ideal solution I'll leave this which may aid someone down the line.

Hmmm, that's weird. I stretched the comment box to that line until I couldn't type anymore, but when pressing F5, it reverted back to its original size.

Let me know if this doesn't change back, Terry.

F5 works here too.

Weird.
