Did We Fix Something That Was Not Broke?(FR)
03 / 02 / 08 | Me

Posted on 03/02/2008 4:54:00 AM PST by sit-rep

Why all of a sudden am I loading the Latest articles page?

It used to be clicking on messages in the upper right corner solved the problem. Now, I finally found "Comments" down the right side a bit, but every time ya hit browse now coming out of a thread, I return to latest articles page!

WWWWWHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAATTTTTTTTTZZZZZZZZZ - UUUUP!!??!!!

I changed it to comments and a little later it went right back.

Something happened.

I can’t get recent posts to show-just the original post and a listing of the number of responses. I didn’t change anything. What’s up?

Disregard my earlier post please, AM.

I fixed it, I hope. Under "Browse by Forum", click on "Comments".

Nope, that didn’t work. As soon as I go back to the main forum page, it reverts to original headings. Yikes! This stinks!

That works once.

Then, when you get done reading a thread and hit browse(Top or bottom headers) it dumps you back on the latest articles page, where you must hit comments again...

I do not like this new system. What happened to clicking just Messages or Threads!

At least tell us how to change views! This sucks!

Well, I must say that I’m glad it wasn’t intentional, because I didn’t like the change at all! :)

Same here. I had my profile set to browse comments. When I click "browse" on a thread it takes me back to recent threads. From there I have to click comments.

I don't like it.

Also, unlike “Messages,” “Comments” don’t seem to be forum specific.

There are other things not working the same, either, like the links on the right column not opening in a new window if you have that set it your preferences.

I have a hunch this was an overnight “upgrade” ... being a webmaster I know that people don’t like a big change in how things function, especially on their favorite precious forum. :)

Have you guys seen this?

(RSS) Add to your sidebar..................... Forum: News/Activism

I was hoping that if I didn't click on the "RSS" it would go back to the old way....NOPE!

Dunno...

I do see in the link for “Browse” on threads, it is tagged “Articles:Latest” so I know this was programmed in...

Simple fix would be to changed the DIV Class to an “http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/comments"; anchor...

But, that would not give indivdual preference set up in some folks forum set ups...

Doesn’t seem to be a way to include the first xxx characters of posts when you go to Comments. Used to be.

Did you put on socks with holes in them this morning?

Because doing that causes all kinds of weird things to happen.

Why not simply make a public announcement of impending changes before they happen? Is that too much to ask?
