Comments Faster and Guestbook Stylesheets

Post Fri Oct 12, 2012 7:47 pm


Hello Everybody,

We have been working on making various changes to the commenting system. We have made the back-end of displaying and posting comments faster. We have also eliminated a lot of page reloads when submitting new comments and moderating existing comments. Clicking the "comment" link at the bottom of a gallery or image page will now instantly show the comment form right below the link instead of reloading it with the form at the top of the page or having to scroll to the bottom of the existing comments to enter your message. All of this was to improve speed, make for a better user experience, and hopefully encourage more commenting.

We have also added the option of stylesheets for guestbook pages ( http://www.pbase.com/profile?cmd=guestbook ). The default setting is to use the same stylesheet as your root gallery, but you can change this at any time by going to the Appearance tab of your Account Settings page - http://www.pbase.com/account?view=appearance Many of you already have a stylesheet set up to make comments look a certain way. That style works the same way on guestbook comments. So, now your guestbook can have the same personalized look as your galleries.

As always, if you experience any problems, please let us know your operating system and browser as well as the URL and any other details that might help us with troubleshooting.

Enjoy!
Emily

Comments sometimes post and sometimes just disappear. Hitting reload makes comments in black hole appear for me. Clicking on voting usually results in "Voting has expired, please try again."

OS - Windows 7 and XP.

Browser - Firefox 16.0.1.

OK, we found a bug that was affecting the first comment on an image/gallery. It is fixed now. Let us know if you have any more problems.

Thanks,

We have also the same problem with french Keyboard. And before your update everything was ok for accents in comments.
And if that can help you, for now, we don't have any problem to put accent (é,è,à ô ....) in title or caption...

Thank you!

Seem to have more of an issue now with keyboard on iPad being displayed over the comment field so you can't see what you are typing. I don't remember this being an issue before. :(

We have fixed the problem with accented characters. New comments and old comments should all display correctly now.

Since submitting a comment no longer requires a new page load, it is true that receiving a comment will not get you that extra pageview in your statistics. So, instead of that "pageview" number being the number of pageviews + the number of comments, now it is the real number of pageviews.

Thanks,
Emily
