Another day, another few updates.
I've found and fixed a number of bugs. Actually, fixing bugs in my own code is not all that challenging. However, when my code breaks because third party code that I use has issues, it's particularly difficult and time consuming.
This bug was actually causing a number of problems for the editor:
jquery auto complete bug.
So I spent the day crawling through the "jQuery UI" project source code to find and fix this issue, so now the tag and @ mention dropdowns should be much more reliable.
Also, I've fixed the dropdown in the tagging/bookmarking dialog so it doesn't destroy itself with long lists of tags. (You can bookmark anything on the site by clicking the bookmark link under it. You'll see how other people have tagged it and you can add your own tags to it.)
I also made the bookmark dialog smaller.
The advanced search box should now work even if you select some tags or @ mentions. Previously it was closing the window if you selected something from the dropdown. Very annoying. However, you now have to click CANCEL in the box to get it to close.
