  • Russell Brown,

    Not a cosmetic request. I’d still like to be able to see a list of older posts please. A “Show More” button perhaps?

    You'll be wanting the "More Posts" button under the headline list on the home page. We're going to rename it "All Posts".

    On PA, yes, but does not appear at all on the PAS version of the list (which is all that I, and some others, I presume, use).

    Ah, thanks. I was expecting that from the All Threads button. Funny how System-centric our expectations can become..

    Sorry but I haven't read the previous 12 pages so I don't know if this has been explained but,
    How does it (the gerbil inside the box) decide what is a recent post? It doesn't seem to be based on how recently it was posted?

    I have just heard that Sufan Stevens will be touring NZ in Feb 2011. Things are just getting better….

    Thank heavens we don't have to be a state of America by then, then!
    Anyway, I guess the US won't want to engage with us in the TPPA (Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement) after our new Free Trade agreement with Russia ...

    Bart: I know the answer to this cause I kind of had to ask. The Recent Posts are the most recent posts that aren't also featured posts. So generally, as a post comes off the 'featured' rotate it'll drop down to the 'recent' block.

    Although this might change, so that "recent posts" includes featured posts too. We're discussing it.

    So I can upload, but not display, images in comments.

    I'm assuming y'all aren't seeing the "Choose file" button. Because you're not supposed to be ...

    correct

    Also, individual comments don't seem to have a permalink anymore. (Correct me if I'm wrong).

  • Bart Janssen,

    Argh so that annoying thing where 5 posts slowly rotate just after you missed seeing the one you were interested in is called "the featured rotate"

    Ok not my favourite new feature but at least I understand what the gerbil is doing now.

    And Emma you so missed the opportunity to be all knowing ...

  • Bart Janssen,

    Oh and in general after getting past the initial "no they changed everything" response ... did I mention I'm not so good with change ... it does all look very nice.

    Despite my above comment the rotating featured post thingy isn't that bad, I just hadn't really looked at it because I'm kind of used to ignoring that part of most web pages, not entirely sure why I ignore that part of the page usually but it seems I do, especially if there is a picture there.

    3410: The comment permalink is on the time and infinity symbol next to the time.

    permalink is now under the “9 milliseconds ago” text :)

    Bart: If you click on any of the white dots at the bottom right of the featured posts box, it will switch to the post you click on (in order), and stop the rotation.

    Jeez. Is it a secret or something? ; )

    Issue # 972645:
    The “3410, 30 minutes ago” row is not tall enough for the text within it.

  • Jackie Clark,

    Okay, website guys. A question for you. Why, when I go to edit a comment, and then save it, it just disappears, and the only comment that appears when I post is the original? When you're as longwinded as me, I can't be faffed rewriting the whole bloody thing.

  • Sofie Bribiesca, in reply to Jackie Clark,

    Is that because you timed out on the edit. That happened to me before but generally it was because I was too late as usual.

  • Rowan Crawford,

    I wrote a slight improve to the "in reply to" functionality, which doesn't reload the page when what it's linking to is on the same page: http://gist.github.com/674800

    In a related vein, could the number of comments on a page either be configurable or bumped again to perhaps 50? Generally I dial it up to ~100 when such options are available to help searching within a page.

  • B Jones,

    Sorry if someone else has already asked this, but half the time on my android phone the text looks enormous and unshrinkable (have to turn it sideways to read 90% of a comment line, and half the time it resizes appropriately. Anyone know what I'm doing wrong? Or perhaps what the site is doing wrong? It seemed to improve once I'd signed in.

    Thanks a lot for the page numbers, and the extra list at the top as well as the bottom. Really appreciate it.

  • matthewbuchanan, in reply to B Jones,

    We've not done a lot of testing on mobile handsets, so there's bound to be issues here and there. The media queries were a quick win to support Webkit on small-screen devices, but this is bleeding-edge technology that not all implementers are handling in exactly the same way. As resources allow we'll improve this where we can.
