    Even with tvtropes.org whitelisted on my ad blocker, sometimes I change pages and no ads are loading, or sometimes only one ad shows up at the top of the page. There's just a blank space with the "report advertisement" tab below where they all should be. Nothing seems to be hanging with the page loading and a refresh or two will bring them back.

    Not that I don't mind not having ads mind you, but if it's not a problem on my ends it might negatively impact the site I suppose. Reply

      I have the exact same thing - whitelisted the site, seeing a grey space on top of the page with a "Report Advertisement" caption. Ads in the left side-bar work right.

    I keep getting a popup that says the name on the security certificate is invalid. It doesn't matter if I click yes, no or close it, it just comes back a few seconds later. Reply

      Sounds like an ad problem, because the wiki does not use HTTPS.

    I see a few travel tip ad videos on the right of my screen on some pages, and when they show up, sometimes I get the "Request Header or cookie too large" notice and I have to delete my cookies.

    Should I be reporting those ads? Reply

    When I was using the Issue Helper while I had TVT in Night Vision mode it gave me this, which only allowed me to discern things when I highlighted that section. Reply

    My profile's email reads 'kinker@hotmail.com', and refuses to change to dp223171@gmail.com, claiming it's already in use. However, when I did a username retrieval with dp223171@gmail.com, it returned as 'kinker'. Is there a way I can make sure my email is actually set to dp223181@gmail.com, and TV Tropes isn't using kinker@hotmail.com? Unrelated Annoyance: The sidebar is at the left side of the screen and not at the right side. Reply

      You can set where you want your sidebar to be (during when you're logged in, at least): click on your icon in the upper right corner, and then on "Profile"; you can then switch on or off "Left-hand side bar" just as you wish.

    This has been happening for a few days now to me, every time theirs an advert for https://www.skyteam.com/en/stories, the scrolling on the page won't work correctly. Every time I try to scroll up or down a tropes page with the advert, the page automatically scrolls back up to the advert. That's some pretty invasive advertising right there and i'm assuming it's not supposed to happen, is it?

    I'm using chrome browser on windows 10 version 1607, 64 bit. Reply

    Every time I load or refresh a page like this one or you know that show the replies are hidden. Using the toggle children button does solve it, but only until I reload the page. I doubt it's my cookies cause I cleared those from my browser and it still does that. Reply

    I don't know if this is an issue on any other page, but Film.Mishima A Life In Four Chapters only shows the correct custom title when you link to it if you write the incorrect WikiWord Film.MishimaALifeinFourChapters (lowercase i in "in" I'm guessing the custom title was originally submitted that way). That's just a minor problem, but it gets somewhat more annoying by the fact that I can't submit a fix through the normal custom title system (instead, I have to do it through here). Reply

      Here is the wrong way. You should ask that the page be cut and recreated with the correct wiki word. This can be done via the cutlist. You may want to save a backup copy of the page first.

      Edit: the wiki word used in creation can be inspected on the custom title menu.

      Edit 2: test Mishima A Life In Four Chapters

      VisualNovel.Kisses And Curses has the same problem. It was originally VisualNovel/KissesandCurses and the custom title only showed when it was linked to that way. Then it was cut and recreated as VisualNovel/KissesAndCurses, but the custom title still only works when it's linked to as VisualNovel/KissesandCurses. See:

      VisualNovel/KissesAndCurses - Kisses And Curses

      VisualNovel/KissesandCurses - Kisses & Curses

      Looks like Call Of Duty Infinite Warfare has the same problem.

    The search function hasn't been working for me for several days now. If I type something into the search box and search for it, the site just displays the "loading" wheel thing and never changes. The search results never actually load.

      I should mention that this seems to be specifically a Firefox issue.

      I dunno if you've already solved it, but I have a possible fix. This same problem was bugging the crap outta me for two months, before I realized the Ghostery extension was blocking Google Search on TV Tropes. If you have that installed, untick the box next to Google Search under Essentials.

    I'm a bit bothered about logging on to TV Tropes when my browser (Firefox version 52.0.2) says that the "Connection is not secure" (will post a screencap later), so I was wondering if (or when) this wiki will upgrade to the "HTTPS" standard.

    Now if there's already a post/thread about this, feel free to chuck this in there as well.

    EDIT: Screencap added:

      Just voting up isn't enough for this request! I'm in the middle of doing some hardcore password maintenance on my personal accounts, and was very disappointed to see that Tv T doesn't bother with SSL.

      It's a long-standing development request, but having an SSL certificate costs money. It's a business decision. Nothing secure or personally identifiable is transacted here, and passwords are stored in hashed form, so it's not like there's a high risk.

      Let's Encrypt issues 90-day certificates for any FQDN at no charge, and you can set up auto-renewal on your server.

      You are welcome not to use TV Tropes if it bothers you. I already said it's on the development radar.

    Apologies if this has been brought up before, but if I put someone on my PM block list, I still get a notification when they send me a PM. I was under the impression it stopped PM's being sent at all, or at least me from knowing about them. It's a bit frustrating to have to go to the list, unblock them, view the message, and then block them again to get rid of the notifications, and defeats the whole point of a PM block. Anyone know a way to fix this? Reply

      Issues with the PM system are on our development list, but fairly low in priority. I'm pretty sure this one is already documented, but I'll confirm.

    New pages in the "Tropers" namespace are defaulting to sub-page instead of contributor for their page type, as seen here. Reply

      I believe this is already reported, but I'll check the development task list to make sure.

    An image and caption can be left-justified on a page, using the markup [[quoteleft:# pixels wide:image URL]] and [[caption-width:# pixels wide:caption text]]. This hides bullet points and numbered lists as demonstrated in Sandbox.Quoteleft Bugs. Reply

      Reported to the developers. Generally one should not left-justify page images, but if the capability exists, it should work as intended.

    According to my watchlist, two people have posted on the discussion page for Clingy Aquatic Life. But when I go to the page, I don't see any posts. I've gone to the discussion pages for other tropes, and the posts are showing up there, so what's wrong with this page? Reply

      'tis possible the posts were deleted. You could also try dropping and re-adding the watch on that article.

    EDIT: seems Nameberry is pulling this as well. Please help!

    EDIT EDIT: I deleted a character planning app and then my internet app crashed. Now it's fixed I guess. I think it might have been a lack of memory on my phone. Thanks anyways, I guess.

    I'm on my Samsung Galaxy S3, on the internet app, and nothing is loading properly. I gave it a few days, deleted extra apps, everything I could think of and the problem isn't fixed. As far as I know, it is only this site doing it. The Troper app works fine. I was tolerating it until now but it's gotten to the point where it's hard to navigate and the Submit a Bug button didn't work, and I had to go on a school computer just to write this.

    Help would be highly appreciated! Reply

      This appears to be a problem with your browser/device, not with us. Unless you can provide some way to reproduce it, such as giving us a phone model, browser, and browser version, and an article that displays the problem, we can't help you. It could be an ad problem, in which case you may try reporting the misbehaving ad with the link next to it.

    On the 21 Jump Street - YMMV page, the Headings ("The Series" and "The Film") are in the code preceded by the usual
    , but they're not formatted right on the Html page - the text is white-on-light-grey (thus, barely readable) instead of the normal bold-black-on-grey.

    For reference, THIS is the affected page (above "Ear Worm", there's the heading "The Series", but it's not readable due to being white) while THIS is how other YMMV pages look like in my browser (the heading there is "The original series...").

    This problem occurs both in Chrome and in Firefox. Reply

      Not so much a glitch as a dubious design decision. If you check the source, you'll note that your example page that works uses a !! header. ! headers just look like that on YMMV pages now (and have for a while)

      I see now you're right. Still, keeping this up in hope the administrators take note to change this. It's a very bad design decision to make parts of pages unreadable.

      I confirmed that the bug exists and reported it to the developers. We do have an updated visual design in the development pipeline, so it may be fixed there already.

    It's not such a big deal, but when you're on a "Heartwarming"-page in night mode (on the mobile version of the site), it's almost impossible to read the indexes at the bottom because it's white font on white background.
