I have the exact same “issue” (it’s not a bug, it’s a feature!), but I was never able to make a screenshot. I’m using the DuckDuckGo Browser.

That’s good!
Probably not so many forums had updated to this version (beta2 or beta3) before. So with more updates I even expect more users to report it…
I’d still be interested in the fact if Meta is also using beta2 or beta3 (or is maybe not experiencing the problem because of using a different version…).

You can press Ctrl-I in Firefox and then look at the ‘generator’ tag from the HTML header to find out.

Meta is on 2.6.0.beta3 at the moment, and we are on beta2.

Thanks for pushing the topic further on Meta!
It’s a pity that there seems no one to be willing or able to answer if there has been any code change regarding the quote code with beta2 (and beta3) release…
And that it seems very difficult to accept it as bug as long as it’s not reproducible on Meta or Try:frowning:

FYI: I tried the same, and had the same result. As in: enabling the Share button does not solve the issue.

If you enter a Web Site in your profile it is shown twice in your user card and profile.

After installing Discourse v2.6.0.beta3, following the instructions in the thread on Discourse Meta, quoting is now fully functional again.

Alas, not fixed by the v2.6.0.beta3 update.


Duck duck go doesn’t show all the content in portrait orientation and only shows what has happened in landscape orientation.

Known Issue. See here:


It helps to change to old Theme (at least for your mobile device) in your profile settings -> Interface -> Theme Fairphone Original.

Strange issue… I wanted to open @alexka’s profile, I clicked on the avatar twice, and it brought me… to my own profile, @Alex.A. I can’t understand. All other profiles work fine, and this issue is 100% reproducible.
Now, would it be because @alexka and @Alex.A have only one character different? But still, that would be strange… Could someone check if it works for them?

I do get to their profile when either clicking on your mention above or their profile pic in a different topic.

Same here, I can’t reproduce this, it works like it should for me.

Usually you should be able to see where a link will lead you before you click it. Is the link to the user profile wrong already for you?

Totally strange. I could construct a farfetched chain of events to get alexka out of a search for Alex.A, but not the other way around.

(In a case-insensitive search using regular expressions, Alex.A would match forum users alex.a as well as alexka because of the wildcard character of the dot. Getting alexka as the search result would then only need the search to encounter or return it first.)

No, here it’s right.
Also, manually changing the user from …/u/Alex.A to …/u/alexka in the URL works.

So, I tried clearing the cookies, I tried another browser, I tried safe mode, I tried another computer, and the issue is still here in all cases.
I tried logging in with my test account, and the issue doesn’t appear with this one.
I tried changing my username to @Alex.At, and the issue disappears. Changed it back to @Alex.A, comes back again.

You mean the visible link target is …/u/alexka and clicking the link you actually end up at …/u/Alex.A?
