#1 clicking on one of the pages seems to return always to Pg 1 WOT. (FF 11.0)

#2 actually, it just pushes PG 1 to the top

#3 Clicking where? I can't make it do that...

#4 I meant the index of the day's articles loads with WOT always at top. You used to load with the current page index at top, IIRC. No big deal, just a change.

#5 You happy now?

#7 requests... I'd like a snark of the day added somehow. We've got some really funny folks here and it would be a crime to miss one. The moderators can decide and put a link on the front page or something. I don't know if it would be practical but it would be fun in the upcoming election season to be armed with potential quips.

#8 The numbers in the views/comments field aren't clear as to what they mean. Should probably be separated into two different fields. If the views is 49 and comments is 0, it looks sort of like 490, even though they're different colors.

#9 The "Phoebe Clayton" and "Hair through the ages" links are borked and should be removed.`

#10 Fred, when you get a chance, take a look at the Name Link. It showed up queerly in today,s article in the Recent Articles list, though it looks fine in today's article under Editor:

#11 Similar to #8 gromky - Sometimes I like to just check the comments later in the day, currently the comment number is difficult to distinguish. Good job anyhow.

#12 Thinking about it; maybe comment # can come before view #?

#13 I concur with #11 and #12 - I can't easily tell how many comments there are - usually the most interesting articles are the ones with lots of comments.

#14 I'm also not a fan of the color of the comment boxes. The drab mustard yellow with blue text is kind of hard to read.

#15 I also, really don't care about the number of views. I care about comments. That's where the Rantburg action is.

#16 That means the main page's comment boxes, the color on the individual articles is the same as it always was and isn't too bad.

#17 See if you like this way better, with the number of comments, last commenter, and [number of views]
Posted by Fred 2012-04-21 19:25||   2012-04-21 19:25|| Front Page Top

#18 When the number of views increases, the number of comments correlatingly increases. This is because on Rantburg you have to reload the same article multiple times if you want to see if anyone is replying to your comments.

#19 The typeface it a little bit larger, I see. Thanks from this blind-as-a-bat commenter - it certainly makes it easier.

Other than that, do whatever you want - I'm just grateful you do it. :-D

#20 Barb, you can increase text size by pressing Ctrl + together. Ctrl - decreases text size.

#21 Fred, my comments are appearing but not my postings. Any ideas?
