The mobthly release schedule section

    Why is it cutting previous days out of the section so early now? Never used to do that. Can it be reverted?

    Second this, according to the web site, there were NO releases at all in July which simply isn't true. It's a real pain in the ass if I happen to be super busy one week and need to figure out if anything I'm following came out with any pre-pub chapters.

    I think it used to work properly, but at some point during the last year it broke.
    But I don't think anyone has ever touched that.

    @tgquan67 it wad really in the last few month's that I've noticed it. Specifically this month and last have cut out really early. It's a pain to go through the titles listings to find the chapters you've missed one by one when you were busy with work or a game for a couple days or a week in a row.

    That's why I wrote my own tracker to track releases, but they change the title in updates so often that the amount of time a title suddenly disappeared from my list is not small at all xD All in all, I still need some effort in maintaining my tracking list.



  • Once upon a time it used to load all events (note: each record on schedule/coming soon is called event in the API so i'll call it that) and it was fine when the site was young and there was less than a few hundred of those. Bit over a year ago, when there were over a thousand of events accumulated that became somewhat heavy (it gets loaded every time anyone opens the site) so it either had to be loaded incrementally (effort) or simply loaded as all future events plus this and previous month. Several hundreds of events may sound like a lot (it isn't especially if you cache) but it's better than loading several thousands.

    Ever since then web client is programmed to load 200 newest events. You may notice that 200 is not exactly "all future events plus this and previous month" I mentioned above. Adding Altina or any of 8 newer volumes that may come any minute now would probably even hide some upcoming events.

    Try the app — it's probably better suited for that.

    @_08 ah so it limited number of event fetched. But that's kinda lazy though, JNC's API fully supports fetching all event in a timeframe (for example I usually use >=1st of this month and <1st of next month to fetch all this month's updates).

    It's gotten worse and is now erasing events from the current day.

    That makes it a real pain to catch up on the new prepub releases, all of the links are gone so you have to remember what was released and search for them title by title, then navigate page by page by page through the parts to reach the latest one.

    If the number of events can't be fixed, please stop fetching so far ahead so at least "today" is fully visible.



  • Hi all!

    Very sorry for the inconvenience. This will be resolved within the next day, but requires an update to the backend, so cannot be fixed immediately. Hang tight, and thanks for reporting this!


  • Premium Member

    Thanks for letting us know it will be fixed soon.

    For "today" things, you should be able to just load the main page of the site and check the sidebar until the issue has been taken care of since it seems to be working to show the today and part of yesterday releases depending on the time.


  • Member

    Thanks a bunch for your hard work, seems to have been fixed now! Really appreciate it!

    This doesn't seem to be fixed in Google Chrome.

    Wednesday's releases are already completely gone from both the home page and the Releases - August 2019 page.

    Edit: the cause seems to be not using versioning on script file includes, after I did a hard refresh the titles appeared.

    @harmlessdave Try clearing your browsers' cache. The fix didn't work for me until I did that.

    Yep, I tried that and was just coming here to edit my post. That's better!

    It looks like the site isn't using versioning for file includes and Chrome was using the cached unfixed versions.

    Yeah, I was seeing the same thing for Safari. Hard refresh fixed it.
