Jeremy describes how using our blogs to write about bugs and/or solutions can help other people, and how this is rewarding for us.
That warms the cockles of my heart. It’s very gratifying to know that documenting the bug (and the fix) helped someone out.
Back in 2015, I had an issue with the behavior of some mobile browsers with the
vh viewport unit, more specifically the
100vh value, and blogged about it.
7 years later, it is still the article with the most referers, visitors and mentions, because people encounter this issue every day!
Fortunately, there is now a standard CSS solution, so I added a mention in the begining of my article, linking to Bramus' article about new viewport units, so that people coming here also find the solution.
In addition to blogging about an issue, it is nice to always check if it is already listed in the browser's known issues, or create it. I know it can be difficult, require additional time, but it helps even more.
After ranting on Twitter, of course… 😅 ↩︎
