    can i test this?

    Alain the site fixer says:

    bad guy, check.

    Alain the site fixer says:

    @Alain the site fixer: needs feedback when an item is Removed that doesn’t exist (error message)

  5. 5
    Alain the site fixer says:

    Perhaps once the list is updated after Add, the page should reload to show the effect?

    Also, I added “bad guy” and it didn’t pie his comment.

    Alain the site fixer says:

    Also need to adjust the text for when you add a comment # – the text in the ack refers to stuff folks don’t see and is thus confusing.

    Alain the site fixer says:

    Hide comment works like magic. It would be nice if user could choose own word, default to pie but perhaps folks prefer a nice sundae? Or tiramisu? Mmm mochi

    Alain the site fixer says:

    So verdict is: pie comment works, pie author doesn’t. Thus endeth the testing on this for today.

    yeah, it should already do that. looks like i broke it.

    Also, I added “bad guy” and it didn’t pie his comment.

    works for me (chrome & FF, win10)

    the text in the ack refers to stuff folks don’t see and is thus confusing.

    in what way?

    Alain the site fixer says:

    So on my desktop – Win 10 home, Chrome, the commenter-pie doesn’t work at all. I have added everyone on this thread and I see all their comments as normal.
    But doing #number works perfectly.

    Alain the site fixer says:

    Laptop, Win10 pro, Chrome, it all works just fine. Both are 64 bit, current on updates, etc. And since I fully shutdown overnight, there was nothing in memory. I’m open to suggestions.

    In a bit, I’ll try some other browsers – Edge, IE, FF, Safari on iPad and iPhone. And re-familiarize myself with the mobile theme.

    @Alain the site fixer:
    does it work if you copy the user’s name directly from the comment and paste it into the text field?
    it works for me, but i’m wondering if there’s some text encoding issue somewhere… ?

  13. 13
    Alain the site fixer says:

    @cleek: nope, I just removed all my folks and copied bad guy and no joy.

  14. 14
    Alain the site fixer says:

    @cleek: I even cleared all the data so it would write all fresh. Still no joy. The only thing now that jumps out is that I see Firebug and Firebug lite on one computer and Firebug Lite on the other. Shouldn’t make a difference, but let me see what I can do.

    @Alain the site fixer:
    if one of you could update with the new script location i’ll add a bunch of console.logs and see what we can find.

  16. 16
    Alain the site fixer says:

    @cleek: Not sure what to do, properly, so I’ll let M4 do it.

    Alain the site fixer says:

    FYI I also tried my nym, cleek, and Major Major Major Major. By typing first then copied and pasted. And everything I do works on my laptop but on the desktop, nope. Extensions are the same except that I’ve got Google Apps turned off on my desktop.

    MajorMajorMajorMajor says:

    @Alain the site fixer: Alain, any chance you’re logged in as an admin on one but not the other? This doesn’t work for me logged in (which is fine( but does logged out.

    Also, @cleek, could we get a refresh on add?

  19. 19
    Alain the site fixer says:

    @MajorMajorMajorMajor: Whoa. I totally am. The issue machine/desktop, I’m logged in as admin to the site.

    Good thinking.
    Let me log out and see what happens.

  20. 20
    Alain the site fixer says:

    Omg. That’s totally it. Now it works fine. Thanks magic man

    cleek says:

    yeah, it’s sending different HTML when you’re logged in (adds extra stuff around the author names). the script doesn’t know how to parse that.

    cleek says:

    >Also, @cleek, could we get a refresh on add?

    yep. i had disabled that so we could get some logging info around this strange add problem. looks like we’ve figured that out.

    i’ll add some code to try to parse names when you’re in admin mode. can’t test it, but i’ll give it a shot anyway. let me know if it works.

    i’ll enable the refresh.

    Alain the site fixer says:

    FYI gents, when I update the site, for a little while, things will look a bit off until I re-apply the custom edits. I’m holding off until this afternoon, just wanted to let you both know. I figure we may as well ensure we’re dealing with the final structure of the comments when we finalize this.

    One question – when the time comes to put live on the main site, is all I’ll need to do is copy the script from the test to the new site, or are there more tweaks under the hood I don’t know about? Response via email is fine on this.

    Major Major Major Major says:

    @cleek: I don’t think the admins really need a pie filter. Might actually be a bad thing.

    good point

    Alain the site fixer says:

    Well this is the new version of the theme – exciting! It was a major update so I need to spend some time learning it. Expect to see this appearance change as I experiment and/or apply our edits, today and tomorrow.

  28. 28
    cleek says:

    hmmm. looks nice.

    it does break the pie filter, tho. not a huge problem. catching up with HTML changes is part of the job.

    but without comment numbers i don’t know what i can do about people who put images in their names.
