Two AMO Website Bug Reports Needed ??

2 Bug Reports may be needed for the AMO Website--- if they haven't been written up already.

A couple of weeks ago, I edited a Persona called Never Give Up. I made edits to the Description field. I also changed it's Category from Nature, over to Causes

All of the edits came through fine for getpersonas.com, as you can see by this page/link. https://www.getpersonas.com/en-US/persona/249843

The AMO link is another story, however. My edited words came through. and proclaim that this Persona is a Causes Persona. But AMO still has this Persona classified as a Nature Persona. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... up/?src=ss

I am wondering if my Persona is a fluke, or if other Personas have also failed to change categories. If any designer has changed their Persona's Category recently, be sure to check those Personas to see whether the Category Change went through to AMO or not.

The other problem is probably not as major as the above one could be. It is simply a parsing problem. Some symbols, such as quotation marks, are not parsing/ filtering down like they should be. You can see the problem in my Persona and in many others on AMO.

In summary, the 2 potential bug reports would be, 1. Persona Category changes not effective on AMO, and 2. An Incomplete Parsing problem.

UPDATE: I have just found another Persona in my Gallery that Failed to change Categories. (I changed it from the Solid Category to the Abstract Category.) Here are the links to it:

I'm back and I've got 2 more! I changed the Pot of Gold and The Pot of Gold II Personas to Holiday Personas, but they didn't change on AMO....

The Pot of Gold Links:

Re: Two AMO Website Bug Reports Needed ??

I have 3 "guinea personas" in my gallery that I have experimented with in the past. I pulled one of them out and edited it yesterday, for the purpose of seeing whether it would change categories properly when the editing data was transferred over to the AMO site.

It worked!!! "Jumping Jacks" successfully changed over from ABSTRACT to CAUSES, on both websites.

Here's my Category Changing Persona. (The 2nd paragraph in my Description that starts "2012 Update" is the relevant one.)

AMO LInk: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... -285413-1/

I am going to start making some experimental edits on the 4 Personas that I mentioned in my link above, to see what it takes to make them change categories successfully. I have to make 2 edits to some of them. I need to make sure that all the data gets transferred to AMO before I can make a 2nd edit. Therefore, It may take a day or two to complete this and see whether the Category changes on AMO went through properly or not.

Stay tuned! :P

Update: I tried editing all four Personas mentioned in the above thread. The description field edits that I made all came through. None of the category changes worked. :o I thought at least 2 of them would.

There is no point in my trying to do any further Category edits at this point. This is clearly an issue that needs to be addressed.

Re: Two AMO Website Bug Reports Needed ??

I filed bug 743719 on the category changing issue. The encoding problem should probably be filed as a separate bug report in bugzilla.

Hi Matt,

Thanks so much for filing a report on this problem and bringing it to Bugzilla's attention! :D

The encoding problem doesn't seem to be as serious to me as the Categories problem, simply because most keyboard symbols seem to be parsing down properly. However, I have noticed that on AMO the fancy little hearts and other symbols that some designers have added to their names seem to be totally messed up.

I don't know how to write bug reports in any case. I'm beginning to wonder if there is a crash course in bug report writing available though. It seems like it would be a handy skill to have. I don't know if I have time to learn it right now, but I might be willing some time later this year.
