Bindle Update: Comments on Comments, File Limits
Kosh has complained that some of the comments in the comments section on the home page do not have clickable links to the articles on which the comments were posted. This must have something to do with how the user is posting the comment because it is impossible for the system to randomly fail to insert the reference link to the article the comment was posted on.
If you come across a comment in the comments section that does not have a link attached to it, and you want to backtrack to the article, simply click on the byline of the person who posted the comment. This will take you to that person’s profile page. Once you are on the profile page, click on the comments section on the black bar. The screen will repaint and you will be able to find the comment. Click on the comment and that will take you to the article the comment was posted on.
I agree that this is a very roundabout pain-in-the-ass way of tracking comments to posts but until I can reproduce the error I can’t figure out what’s causing it.
However, that raises another subject. I have been thinking of relocating the comments section on the home page to the top of the right-hand column because that seems to the section that you all are most interested in seeing. Comments on relocating comments.
