So by now you've probably seen the comment redesign. If you haven't, go look. I'll wait.


Okay, so. Since it went live, I cannot comment. The 'post new comment' button literally does nothing when I click it. As does the icon selection button, which I hear is a disaster anyway.

Without comments, I don't see how I can possibly RP. So I'm on unwilling hiatus until this gets fixed. I'm hoping that happens quickly. If it doesn't...I don't know what I'll do. Cry a lot, probably.

I love all y'all. Here's hoping it at least lets me post this...

EDIT: Just so everyone knows, this workaround does work. Obviously it's not ideal, but it works and I can comment again.

Not an ideal solution, but it might work until LJ fixes this: First, go into Profile, go to settings, go to Display, and click the box next to 'View all journals and communities in my own style'. Then go into your journal style, customize your theme. Go down to 'Disable customized comment pages for your journal' and set it to no.

Now... it'll put all comment pages in the same style as your journal. It's not ideal, but it gets rid of these new 'improvements'. That might get it so you can comment again.

Just found this on one of the Russian update bits:

"A note to users of RP, Meme and other communities, where subject line is crucial for operation: for the moment we are developing only standard commenting representation, well know in LiveJournal as S1 styles, but we will keep subject lines, both in terms of form and representation, in advanced — S2 — styles, and provide an ability to keep it forever for certain communities, as well as, by request, will develop an extra functionality for such communities thru OpensSocial applications going public next year."


WTF is OpensSocial?

Open Social is a programming API (by Google) for making site widgets. It's not necessarily a bad thing; the Google widgets that people use in GMail are OpenSocial. Not that I have any doubt that LJ will find a frustrating and stupid way to implement them, eventually.

Yeah I have the same problem in firefox, but it works for me in chrome. I hate chrome.

This is horrible and ugly and I hope they quickly roll it back to optional.

Ha, this is LJ. What am I thinking?

This blows hard; glad switching to custom pages worked to at least give you some function back.

Hopefully we'll also be able to help by getting the FH comms switched over to a style that has at least bearable comment pages; we're working on that as well as an OOC post, but 3/4 of the admin creatures aren't awake and even those who are may or may not be wearing pants yet. ;-)

YUP. She said, having just tested it. They all come through as "reply to your comment."

Also icons that you cannot actually *use* because your paid account has expired will show up in the icon-browser, but go to the default instead once you've posted.

FWIW, Expand (when working) gets you the Thread link. Parent is just gone, period. Expand will actually expand if you just click it, will get you the thread if you right-click + open in new tab, and if you right-click and copy it, that link will work for linkdrops, radio, etc.

Also, pants are only necessary for admin work when you also have to go to boring regular work.

I don't think pants are necessary for anything, but that's just me. Glad it's at least letting you comment now?

I heard Minimalism--Georgia is relatively uneye-scarring.

Also, searching for icons is CASE-SENSITIVE so if you're like me and you capitalize everything, just doing a letter search for the icon you're using will result in EVERY ICON BUT THE ONE YOU'RE SEARCHING FOR.

Yeah, I've taken to just omitting the first letter of the icons with names that I remember. Which is completely ridiculous, I don't know why they thought this was a good idea, but.
