Numbering Display Bug

+5
−0

I think there is a bug with a final text numbering not matching the numbering in the preview.

I recently posted this answeron meta. When I edit the question the preview of the text displays correct numbering but once the edit is saved the numbering is displayed incorrectly (possibly connected to this older bug?)

Here is a picture showing the error. The first half is the display when the post is being edited, and the second half when the answer is posted:

example of bug where the first half is the display when it is being edited, and second half when the answer has been posted.

Did one of your edits fix this, or did some other change fix the bug? The linked post looks like it has the correct numbering now, but I can't tell if that's because you found a workaround or because it's working now. Monica Cellio‭ 4 months ago

@MonicaCellio no it did not - I just tried it right now once more for good measure. Also an issue is that I don't anymore know how to edit to fix it. In an editing window everything looks fine only when changes are saved the output does not render as it should. Since in editing mode everything looks normal I don't have even a way to test/try changes (aside from just randomly trying to make small changes and observe results after saving, which would be too time consuming) 1muflon1‭ 4 months ago

Thanks @1muflon1‭! I'll ask the dev team to look at it. Since I (accidentally) neglected this for a few weeks and we've deployed other changes, I just wanted to check back first before doing that. Monica Cellio‭ 4 months ago

You should explain whether this is one list or multiple lists. It seems to me that each list should start at 1 separately. In other words, the right side looks correct, not the left side. I base this on an unordered list apparently inserted between two ordered lists. Olin Lathrop‭ about 1 month ago

@OlinLathrop no this is a single list, if it would be 2 separate lists I would not report it as an issue 1muflon1‭ about 1 month ago

This is a test with known input.

  1. First entry in ordered list.
  2. Second ordered list entry.
    • First entry in subordinate list under point 2.
    • Second unordered list entry.
  3. Third entry in outer ordered list.
  4. Outer list entry 4.
  1. First entry in second ordered list.
  2. Outer list 2, entry 2.
    1. Entry 1 of subordinate list in outer list 2, entry 2.
    2. Second entry of subordinate ordered list.
  3. Back to outer list 2. This should be entry 3.

All the above looks correct in the preview. Using HTML <ol>, <ul>, and <li> tags.

The above looks as expected. The example above therefore does not reproduce the bug. Olin Lathrop‭ about 1 month ago

Thanks, for your answer. I think that in the mean time the bug got fixed. The screenshots above showcase the bug but I just tried to edit my post today and the bug is no longer present. I guess the bug got fixed and nobody just took time to post answer to this question. 1muflon1‭ about 1 month ago

I also noticed that now my question has status completed tag - did not realized that it got new tags I thought I would get some notification for that 1muflon1‭ about 1 month ago

@1muffon1 I didn't realize that a tag-only edit didn't generate a notification. Sorry! Yes, we found and fixed this bug recently. (That's the exclusive "we"; I didn't do anything except convey the news. The actual credit goes to others.) Monica Cellio‭ about 1 month ago

@Monica: I didn't notice until now that the question is 3 months old. When you folks fix something, it would be worth adding and answer, even if all it says it "Fixed". Tags are easy to not notice. I guess it was the addition of the tag that got this post bumped so that I noticed it. Olin Lathrop‭ about 1 month ago
