I'll ask the dev team to take a look into it. In the meantime, could you please email me the code in a .rar, or renamed .zip (ie .notzip) file, along with the URLs to the articles on which that code belongs?
This morning there was a question that I commented on. I had hoped that I could get back to it and provide a proper response later, but now it's gone and I can't even tell who asked the question or if they reasked it. What happened to it? Any chance of bringing it back from the dead?
I believe this is a long standing bug. The RSS feed does not show all the articles for an author. It probably caches it once somewhere and then fetches from there, so I was hoping you'd be able to reset and recreate that cached copy.
More info that may help you identify the problem faster. This has happened 2 times now, where an article has failed to make it to the RSS feed. On both occasions, the article also failed to appear on the front page. Example, this was posted about an hour or so ago :
Articles posted before that, and those posted after that have shown up on the front page. So something causes the front page listing as well as the RSS feed to skip this article. I remember the same thing happening with the other article in the past.
Times like this I wish your code was open (like Stack Overflow). The community could have helped debug these sorts of things that are bugs that are frustrating for authors, but are not high priority enough for your full time staff to work on.
I figured it out. It's still a bug but one with a workaround. If you use tags that are not in your existing list, then the article won't show up there. Example, my tags were C++11 and C++14, but I did not have VC++ or C++. Once I added those, the article now shows in the RSS feed. Just to be safe I also added dev, architect etc. but I don't think that affected anything. Just FYI.
The source code of my article Asynchronous Tasks using AsyncTask[^] is corrupted. It was working fine, since many people have downloaded it and not complained. However, yesterday someone posted a problem which indeed is the result of a corrupted file.
Could you please check this out because I am having trouble finding the original source code, since the article is a bit old?
The links in QA can not be followed, because of the position attached to the link... http://www.codeproject.com/Questions/800114/How-do-I-connect-to-a-SQL-Server-Database-using-Vi?arn=1
That arn=1 parameter prevents from browsers to sign the link as visited when the position of the question changes in the list, which happens every minute. It's very annoying...can it be removed?
I'm not questioning your powers of observation; I'm merely remarking upon the paradox of asking a masked man who he is. (V)
I'm not sure what the cause is, but some results (at least one anyway) don't take you to the correct post, you just get the first page of the forum.
To reproduce search The Lounge for 'chair', the 4th result "Re: Office chairs by GibbleCH" just takes you to the first page of the forum.
