Slight Problem Searching for Gifs

Ask a Question

FTAO Kelsey and anyone else who's interested.

I don't know if it just on my laptop or others experience the same problem.

If searching for a GIF that begins with the letter P, when typing the second or third letter the full LD page just blanks out. I've tried a few times with all other letters and no problem.

If others try and they have the same problem they might need to come back to chat to reply.

I think I've found a workaround and am checking it out.

🤣 davidstockport You're absolutely correct - strange how I just couldn't trust myself until I tried it three times. How odd!

sunny101 Thanks for checking - at first I thought someone was taking the P.😀

I've spent quite some time checking things out and it only happens when the first letter is P.

No doubt Kelsey will sort it out, although this could be a problem connected with the GIF site.

davidstockport Had to try, definitely doesn't like words starting with 'P'. Start with any letter then change to P and it's fine. Image

I had been looking for "picking locks" but changed it to "lock picking" - it's a damn nuisance getting back again when the screen blanks out.

At least we now know it's not something wrong with our PCs.

davidstockport @liIyflower I should have also said it's an even bigger nuisance when the comment you've written, that you wanted to add a GIF to, has to be written again.😀 lilyflower (I don't know why the first tag wouldn't work - gremlins are at it today)😀

Hey 🙂

Thanks for the heads up and sorry about that! Giphy (the people who have all the lovely gifs!) seem like they were sending something unexpected and LD was having a bit of a hissy fit. I've tweaked the code to be more robust so should be working now!

I meant to mention but something has gone wrong with your points adderer upperer. If you check the last two sets of points I've been awarded (8.29pm and 3.40pm) you will find on both occasions they have each been 20 short.

It doesn't matter about the 40 points but thought you should know, because if it's doing it on other member's accounts (and they notice) you could have riots on your hand.😀

davidstockport Thanks once more for the heads up! I'll have a dig into the code to see if I can work out what's going on 👍
