    Von,
    I just tried to edit my one entry in the Obex - https://obex.parallax.com/obex/pllset/
    and got an error message upon clicking the "Update" button:

    Mismatch with the object number!
    Relax, eat some walnuts, refresh your browser and please try again!

    All I tried to do was change the Category tag from "Other" to "Tool".

    got it, thanks. working on some updates Friday/Monday, and will fix that too.

    (I could guess that you created that post before I added the object number security, so it's barfing at a missing secret. No problemo to fix. Posts created now won't face that issue.).

    I registered on a new OBEX. Now, I have to clean my objects and add several of them there. I have video and audio drivers, media player and a Basic interpreter.
    Feature request: add Basic to the programming language set :)

    I'm still getting the same error the same way.

    Is the jsdelivr.net domain important to unblock? I've seen it referenced on a number of websites over the years but it never seems to be all that important for a functioning webpage.

    BASIC already available when you add new object.

    Misunderstanding--- by "OBEX updated" I was referring to Chip's object update. Not your old object :)

    I'll split this to a new thread so we don't confuse with strtofloat.
    I'll be making some major-ish updates over the next 2-3 days (starting Monday probably), so feel free to add feature requests or comments. No guarantees, but will always try.

    jsdelivr is a CDN handler used by some plugins: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JSDelivr

    If you disable it, you might lose some functionality or CSS, - ha, you might even hit security issues requiring the assistance of walnuts.
    Since you last mentioned it I've not worked on this project, so never did take a look to see what objects were using that CDN machine. If there's time this round, will take a peep.

    Oh, good. No rush.

    @evanh Try LocalCDN ( https://www.localcdn.org ) if you want to block weird CDN domains without actually breaking the jquery or whatever library they load.

  • evanhevanh Posts: 15,395

    Cool. Something to test out I guess.

  • @evanh
    I found the missing walnut and put it back into your object! You should be fine to edit that post now.

    A new feature called "Adopt" has been added to Archiver posts.

    Those with permissions will see an Adopt link appear beside the Archiver author name. Click that to adopt your own old posts, or feel free to adopt abandoned posts to look after them !

    Once Adopted, you'll be able to Edit the posts and file attachments if required.

    If unsure, please ask here.
    If needed, I can move objects back to other authors, if someone later claims/etc...
    If you don't have permission, PM me or request at support@parallax.com

  • I think I got all of mine now.

    I think I have adopted all of mine.

    One problem with OBEX, I can't update my profile or cover photo. It gets to the point of cropping it and the Apply button does nothing. It produces an error in the JS console.

  • Which image type is that? I’ll try to recreate / solve.

  • ke4pjwke4pjw Posts: 1,115

    I tried PNG and JPG. I tried the latest versions of Edge and Firefox.

    looks like cropper.js had come a cropper!
    just snuck out and re-installed.
    no time to test properly now, but will check in the morning. (or probably I'll hear about it soon enough :)

  • ke4pjwke4pjw Posts: 1,115

    No joy. Looks like a datatype error.

  • Darn! I’ll report it to the plugin author. Hopefully they can fix it soon. I will keep you posted here.

    hmm.. seems you're still setting off alarm bells @evanh
    :)

    Any chance you could try posting it again, as a new object ?
    If that works, we can delete the bad one.

    Scrub that- please try editing again....

    (OK, I was too late! Out of curiosity though, can you now edit OB3804 ? )

    Yep, works this time. :)

    Yay!! Thanks for sticking with it!
    That pesky high-security walnut was really doing it's job!!

    Ha! But a fresh test case I just made I can't get to the edit mode with it - https://obex.parallax.com/obex/8-bit-sar-adc/
    The browser keeps looping in some fashion after clicking on Edit.

  • Looks ok... does shift-f5 (or equiv) help ?

    ooooh, that's a lot of details. Never knew about that.

    Attached is the two sequences: The one for Pllset is quick to change to the edit mode. The one for SAR ADC takes a while to even loop at loading it and just keeps looping, never rendering its edit page.

  • Are you still blocking cdn.jsdelivr.net ?
    -anyway- try again now.

  • evanhevanh Posts: 15,395

    Yes. And it's working now thanks.

  • Cool. Moved the code-highlight script off the CDN.

  • evanhevanh Posts: 15,395

    PS: My modus operandi is start with everything blocked and only unblock what I have to on a case by case basis. Funnily, I tend not to visit new sites at any great rate.

  • @ke4pjw said:

    Fixed it myself (hopefully)... Could you try again please?

    ps. The sunset was me :)
