Vanilla broke it again!

Since Vanilla breaks our forum so much I thought I would make a master tread for discussing what is broken on the forums. Any time you notice something is broken then post it here and I (or another moderator) will edit the OP here to list what you can expect to be not working properly.

What is currently not working:

    Topics no longer take me to the latest post. Like the page will be scrolled down enough that the latest unread post won't be fully legible or the page will have scrolled 1 or 2 posts too far. Unsure if this only happens in topics that feature images/spoiler tags or not.

    I assume this is due to recent changes to the Vanilla software because it wasn't happening before the recent discussions about HTML/BBCODE.

    I actually kinda forgot about this thing. I suppose I should update it soon.

    One of these days I may find time to update this. The problem is that Vanilla changes so much so often that it is hard to know what is broken and what is just a silly change...

    If you view comments from "Reactions" you can not open spoilers. Not a big deal but it is the only thing I can come up with.

    After I did a new user welcome post, I now permanently get this "You have posted 1 times within 60 seconds. A spam block is now in effect on your account. You must wait at least 300 seconds before attempting to post again." whenever I make a new thread. It's gone on a lot longer than 300 seconds and it's forever and won't end! It's impossible to make any more threads after that.

    The copyright info shown at the bottom of every page spans across the whole width and blocks parts of the link list on the left side (see screenshot).

    When I try to edit a post of mine, I must choose a category but my category is greyed out and I cannot save the changes. See attached screenshot.

    I had the same issue once, when trying to open a new discussion from the Hungarian category. Try to go click on the discussions button above, then open a new discussion there and select the category. (I hope i'm clear about this.)

    Edit: Checked it myself again, and i can confirm the above report. If i try to open a new discussion, while i'm in the Localization sub-forum, category is greyed out at selection.

    When opening a new discussion from main site i don't have this problem:

    Edit2: It seems the issue consists only in the Localization subforums, in all other subforums clicking on new discussion opens a new thread in that subforum automatically, the category selection don't even pops up.

    Indentations inside <code> </code> tags appear to be discarded lately. <pre> </pre> still works. See example in this comment.

    Sometimes code tags are preferred to avoid auto-conversion of special characters, such as words starting with @ ('at' sign).

    That was a very bad bug. Glad it has been fixed.

    Whew. I know we have some wild stories on Three word story maker, but that was the wildest yet. I'm glad to see things working again (knock on wood). B)

    In addition to these software bugs it was impossible to log in at all for several hours.

    Btw, I have noticed a couple more issues lately:
    - Gaps between text paragraphs in comments is twice as big as usual
    - Smileys are sometimes vertically misaligned
    - Text is invisible (i.e. uses same color as background) when switching to full page mode for editing or creating comments
    - Text in edit window is barely readable (light gray on white background) when removing focus from the window

    Thanks for the feedback! We've tried to fix a few issues today. Do they still happen?

    The comment box doesn't change to a gray on white color palate when removing the focus from it any more, so that's fixed.

    Gaps between paragraphs have returned to normal, smiley positions are fixed and color schemes of the edit window in both modes are fixed as well. Thanks.

    The issue regarding missing indentation in code blocks, that I posted earlier is still open though.

    It's better but the comment box does not have any border where previously it has. I think it was better with it.

    So that's what was off. I did notice that and have to agree after trying it out more overnight.

    Smiley positions are still vertically misaligned in the mobile version of the site, although the desktop version is fixed.

    I noticed that one issue with spacing remains: If you use a heading, the appropriate gap between the heading and the following paragraph is missing. You can see this in the posts by @argent77 announcing a new NearInfinity version, for example: https://forums.beamdog.com/discussion/comment/987096/#Comment_987096

    When creating a post, the gap looks correct if you click on the "Preview" button, but it's gone after you create the actual post.
