Dear friends, just a short note about the commenting system. You have already seen the new design for some time. I hope, everything works well and you haven’t experienced any issues with writing/submitting your comments.
Still, maybe you haven’t discovered some new features I’d like to mention
- After you have submitted the comment, you can still EDIT it for 24hr after submission if it wasn’t replied (for registered users only). Move your mouse to the text area of your message and you’ll see the settings wheel appearing in the bottom right corner – Manage Comment. Click on it to see the Edit option.
- Writing your comment you can apply some styles to your text, like Bold(B), Italic(I), Underline(U); numbered and bulleted lists… – see the icons in the bottom part of comment window (making the text Bold in the example to the right)
- You can attach ONE IMAGE (for registered users only) to your comment (files of jpg, jpef, png, gif types) using the icon add image in the right bottom corner of comment’s window.
- Of course, as before, you’re free to use direct html code in your comment if you feel like.
Have to tell, I haven’t tried all the options myself, so would like to get your comments about useful or not working features.
And after all, I’ve updated the right side bar with more condensed solution for showing recent posts and comments. Myself I like it mostly for two reasons: first, it makes the sidebar shorter or the information closer – like, you don’t need to scroll all posts to get to the comments section; second, COMMENTS and POSTS tabs have the pagination, so you are not limited with the 7-10 of presented recent posts, but can move to the older ones using the “next” button. The one drawback for now it that this system doesn’t show the date/time of the comment. I’m sorry about it, for now don’t see the way to show it.
And, please, check the WELCOME tab sometimes! ☺ – Julia
