"No selections available" in chat

Austin Best 4 years ago in Chat updated by jeff 3 years ago 6

When i try to send a message, it will not send. All it does it show "No selections available" above the message. Is there a reason for this? If so, how about putting that reason in the UI so i can understand why Ryver refuses to send my message.

Maybe you can tell me what is wrong? Is this another hidden MD issue? I really dislike the fact that this software implements "parts" of the MD language with no instructions on that what so ever. That makes for a very bad user experience.

Some input on this would be awesome.


Thanks.

Ok, we reproduced this and created a ticket for a developer to fix it. In the mean time, I would recommend surrounding your code messages with three back ticks above and below, like my example in the pasted screen shot. This will get around the bug, and give you some color coding as a bonus.

OK, thanks for responding.


Will there ever be anything added to the UI for those who are not computer savvy to be able to work with MD rules? Just because you know it, your developers know it, I know it and other developers know it, this shouldn't lead to the assumption that everyone knows MD and that it exists in Ryver. At least i wouldn't think so. Just curious...

This is because of the forward slash on your text.

Some text that starts with the forward slash in Ryver chat box consider as some kind of internal command.

So what can you do is, escape the text with a backward slash.

I verified that pasting the original text doesn't cause the command help to pop up anymore, but it would definitely still be best practice to use the back-ticks for any embedded code in messages.


We're now talking about ways to put a formatting helper into the chat textbox area, which should help.
