'Publish' not working in online Squiffy editor? Does nothing.

I've turned off ad blocking, allowed popups, tried Opera and Chrome browsers, but the Publish button in the online Squiffy editor does nothing. In the browser status bar I see a flash of a gstatic.com URL speed by, but that's it. Checking the 'Published' tab in My Games, it says nothing has been published, which seems right given the non-feedback given by the Publish button.

Even after reading the sparse info on what to expect from Publish'ing, I find I still don't really know what to expect.

Any guidance? Thanks.


I'm using the Chrome browser, with default settings.

I just created a test game and it published, but I had to click Save at the top-left before the Publish button would do anything.


Odd. I've 'saved' prior, but no joy on 'publish'. Hmmmm.... mulling. Might be a setting or an extension. I'll try bare bones.


I turned on Developer tools (in both Chrome and Opera -- which are both Chromium browsers) and viewed the browser console for errors, clearing all existing errors, then pressing Publish. Immediately threw the following errors:

Uncaught ReferenceError: squiffy is not defined
    at eval (eval at globalEval (jquery-2.2.4.min.js:2), <anonymous>:1:1)
    at eval (<anonymous>)
    at Function.globalEval (jquery-2.2.4.min.js:2)

    at HTMLButtonElement.publish (editor?id=4dnDnUb6aECtPjoXBXlrcQ:174)
    at HTMLButtonElement.dispatch (jquery-2.2.4.min.js:3)

Kinda odd, unless I'm completely zoning out something. jQuery dependency should be handled back on the server side if I'm using the online Squiffy editor, no? Hmmmm.... pondering.


OK... Solved. For the most part.

I clicked Publish a second time and got additional errors:

Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'closest' of null at HTMLDocument.document.addEventListener (browser.js:277)
document.addEventListener @ VM363 browser.js:277
Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'closest' of null at HTMLDocument.document.addEventListener (browser.js:277)
document.addEventListener @ VM379 browser.js:277
Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'closest' of null at HTMLDocument.document.addEventListener (browser.js:277)
document.addEventListener @ VM395 browser.js:277
Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'closest' of null at HTMLDocument.document.addEventListener (browser.js:277)
document.addEventListener @ VM411 browser.js:277

etc....

That suggested a possible syntax or compile error, so I just deleted the last half of the content, testing the hunch. After that, Publish worked fine.

Sooooooo.... appears the online editor perhaps doesn't elegantly handle errors on Publish. Could be worse.

Now, to figure out exactly what the faulty code/text was.


I note about it in case it can be improved in next versions. Thanks!
