I was adding some tags to my favorite tags today and noticed tags being joined together when the page is refreshed.

Steps to reproduce:

  • Click edit on Favorite Tags

  • Create the first tag and click add [I added django in this case]

  • Add a second tag and click add [I added python in this case]

  • Refresh page

  • Favorite tags now show previous tags + djangopython

In the edit section, it appears as if the tags are added separately, but when I refresh the page they get joined

OS: MacOSX-10.8

Browser: Chrome, Firefox

Just reproduced it using Ubuntu 12.04 and both Chrome and Firefox. Tested with a different pair of tags and still reproduced it. – Dennis Meng Oct 9 '13 at 21:17
Likewise, reproduced it using Chrome on Mac OS X. – Omar Oct 9 '13 at 21:50
Reproduced in Firefox 22 and Chrome 30 on Windows 8 with different tags. – doppelgreener Oct 9 '13 at 22:32
The bug is in the JavaScript constructing the string being sent in AJAX, resulting in this. If you add tags to favorites using the hover popup it's working fine when adding more than one. – Shadow Wizard Oct 10 '13 at 8:38

While internationalizing the javascript around saving preferred tags, errors were made andspaceswereforgotten.


This is now fixed andwillbedeployedinthenextbuild.

I don't need JavaScript to do this, my keyboard already does this for me perfectly well. – animuson Oct 10 '13 at 16:40
