Bugtracker Thread

Post by mjedlin66 »

Here's a list of known issues and the status. Please comment your bug reports below. I'm closing the other bug threads and making this a sticky.

Leaderboard "Show True YTD Returns Only" Doesn't work.
2020 returns missing for partial year accounts - Fixed? I don't know. Chime in.
Live graphs (bottom, left side) - Google changed their chart system and the way these graphs used to be generated is now unavailable. This is not an easy fix. Also lowest priority.
Code loops - The original code used a lot of copy-paste. For example, a task that needs to be repeated from 2004 to 2020 would be copy and pasted 17 times. It makes it very difficult to change. I am slowly replacing these with the proper loop syntax so the block of repeating code is written only once. But there's a lot of them.
PHP 7 Upgrade - Lowest priority. But as I make code changes I progress toward compatibility. Estimate: November.
Forum software upgrade - Will go hand-in-hand with the PHP 7 upgrade. Estimate: November
Responsive website - This means it is optimized to fit different screen sizes like computer, tablet, phone. Will come *after* the PHP 7 upgrade and the forum upgrade. Estimate: November
Google Ads - Probably returning but they require a responsive website. Estimate: Jan-Feb
Subscriptions - Probably returning but they require a responsive website. Ad free site, access to *reliable* SMS alerts for watch list. $19.99/year. Estimate: Jan-Feb
Trophies - I would love to bring these back. Estimate: Jan-Feb
"find a member" link from Manage Friends (user control panel) page does not work
FantasyTSP Balance Sheet By Chart Range - Does not show new L funds

FIXED:
Invalid IFT dates - Existing issues fixed. But there were multiple pieces of code that have the potential to put these invalid IFT dates in the database. I will keep an eye out for them and run my fix as needed.
IFT timing - Ongoing issues with IFTs. These are highest priority and I usually fix them as soon as they come up. As far as I know, it's currently stable.
New Account Problems - All brand new sign ups are not being initialized correctly. Their fantasy TSP starts off broken and I fix it as I go. I need to fix the root cause.
5,15,30,90,180 day returns - Ongoing. Right now these fail on automatic update but they work fine when I manually run the same function. I don't know why yet. Previously they were showing incorrect values and I do believe I finally fixed that. Note these are calendar day returns. The 5 day return therefore counts weekends/holidays.
L2020 Removal - Done
2020 returns - Fixed
All TSP Share Prices link to G Fund - Fixed
Unable to graph the core funds in fantasyTSP - Fixed
L2065,L2050,L2045,L2035,L2025 Support - Fixed. If you find bugs let me know. I am aware that the "member allocations" and "show all pending allocations" tables look like crap with that many columns.
Top Fund Returns shows 0% for F,C,S,I - Fixed
Balance and Real Balance limited to 10 digits. - Changed, now you can have and specify balances up to 999 million plus XX cents.
Real TSP balances reset - Fixed, and historical balances restored. I think.

Real TSP Balances - I know you said this is a low priority. When you get around to it, can you add an extra digit to the balances that we manually enter ourselves? For example a balance of $1,049,733.14 only can entered as $1,049,733.1. The last hundredths digit can't be entered manually, although it appears that the website then later automatically rounds this to 1,049,733.10. Thanks.

Matt, you probably already addressed them but the ones I noticed are YTD return and my actual TSP balance, which is off by like $300K, so my history is off accordingly. I know you are swamped but those are the 2 main ones I noticed.

Thanks.

Looks like the removal of the L2020 has caused problems for earlier this year for anyone who was in L2020. I show sharp erroneous declines for each move that included L2020. I should have a year to date return of around plus 2.20% which was there this morning. This afternoon it says I am down 48.30%. Thanks for all you do...we appreciate it!

I see what you're talking about. I am running the sitewide recalc again right now. Last time it took 12 hours. Hopefully this time will be faster.

Hi Matt, thank you for all your hard work. Currently, I am missing all my allocations from Jan 2019 to today, about 38 IFTs. I have all the dated IFTs up until July 17, moved 100% to I, however, the balance is steady @ $103,188.00 for all of last year and year to date. Also, the dollar amount and percentage gain/loss all reads $0.

Here is a portion, cut and pasted.

I lost 100,000 on my TSP balance. No big deal really.

Would it be easier just to do a clean wipe and start all over?

Thanks for all you do and best of luck.

That's what I'm doing. None of the raw, user-inputted data has been deleted. That is, none of your IFTs have been deleted. I deleted *all* of the balance calculations and I'm starting them over. Once the calculation is done you should be right back where you were, minus any inaccuracies that users had before.

This process works but it takes a while (6+ hours) and it was interrupted twice on Sunday. I just started it again and hopefully made it impossible to interrupt.

No matter which fund you click on in the daily TSP Share Prices section you get taken to the G fund.

And on the Forum main page, the Top Fund Returns section with links to each fund, only the G fund is showing a return. Those links work, but the all funds show 0.00% YTD.

None of the fund options (F, C, 2050, Income, etc.) except for G show up on the chart if you select any of the Fund Comparison Options under FantasyTSP Account Chart. The Member Comparison Option works though.

So if I try to compare my returns to any fund(s) except for G, it only shows my line.

I'd add a photo but "the board attachment quota has been reached."

I like these links. It's the only place I can see daily % changes if I don't log in everyday. Otherwise I can only see the last full day % change or the YTD% change

I think we need some way to get to the fund's page if this isn't the way to go.
