    Is anyone still having the commenting problem on the front page?

    I'm wondering if anyone is still having problems seeing the comments in the front page articles. Earlier, we were having a problem where each article was only showing a fraction of their comments (for example, it would say there are 43 comments in an article but some users would only see 3).

    Please let me know if this is still an issue. Thanks.

    I have not seen that problem. But I have a new problem. When I try to post a quick rely, it tells me I don't have enough characters. No matter how many characters I add, it says I need "at least 3 more". I have not been able to comment because of this.

    So how were you able to do this comment? What did you do differently?
    Thanks,

    My guess is he used the full reply system.

    Cmathewson, what browser, operating system, and version are you using?

    I haven't see the comment count discrepancy since the changeover (although admittedly I am using the forums more).

    It seems fixed for me. I only looked at one article from the front page but all seemed fine.

    I'm just going to assume that the problem is fixed now. Whew.

    I've been going through the front page again, and I've seen no comment discrepancies. Good work!

    Interesting semi-related issue today: the Vance Worley article on the front page says it has 74 comments, but since it was apparently merged with an existing forum post, it only displays 69 comments, dropping the 5 that came prior to the article's post date/time. (I noticed it because the first posts under the article were quoting other posters/posts which weren't there.) Navigating to the forum thread displays all the comments properly.

    I love that the article and thread comments got merged -- I wonder if it would work to "back-date" the article somehow to capture those earlier comments for its display?

    That's a system thing. It only "acknowledges" the posts that were creating in the thread it generated for that specific article. Anything before the merge will be ignored by the system... Kind of a dumb flaw but one that would be extremely irritating to fix and would require re-coding core components (a good idea to avoid whenever possible).
