Making dynamic mode work, and Fiction section news

By rusty in Site News

Ok, I promise this is the last Site News for a few days at least. I didn't want to post this, but people keep reporting that they can't get dynamic mode to work, and I keep answering the question all over the place, so here it is in one convenient hard-to-miss location:

To make dynamic mode work properly again, you need to shift-reload a page with dynamic comments, or do whatever your browser requires to get it to fully reload the linked javascript file from the server. Most browsers will try to use a cached file if they have it, and the old javascript code won't work with the new in-page stuff.

A word about Fiction below, and a request for more info on a bug.


There's a bug a number of people have reported where comments are displayed stragely sometimes, or don't appear when you're replying to a comment, or appear but are squashed up in strange ways. I haven't been able to duplicate this, so if anyone who has this problem could either take a screenshot of it, or (even better) see if you can poke around the html and identify where the problem lies, I would really appreciate it.

It's been over a week, and the Fiction section vote was pretty firmly in favor. I know, I said it would be Wednesday, but I was a little busy, you know? I have to scoot off to Massachusetts this weekend, so the Fiction section will be appearing on Monday.

Also, about the automatic comment rating in dynamic mode. A few people have said they don't want to use it, so we will add a preference for that. There's also a dynamic version of the subscriber tools box coming, which works similarly to dynamic comments, so you can change the box's mode without reloading the page. That too will be optional for subscribers -- you can use the current version or the dynamic one.

And I promise that's the last site news until Monday, at the very earliest. :-)

after looking at the html, that just after the <!-- end comment --> tag is displayed on this post comment page, there needs to be close and open table tags (after that closing TR tag of course).

That's basically it, though figuring out where and why that isn't happening took me a while (and I didn't quite succeed). But that is the problem. :-)

If anyone cares, a temnporary workaround is to go to your comment prefs, and in the box for "Nested up to" enter "1". So a single comment alone will display in nested mode, which doesn't have this problem.

Yes, bug (5.00 / 2) (#29)
by panner on Fri Jan 24, 2003 at 06:56:14 PM EST

It's fixed now in Scoop CVS, though K5 doesn't have the fix yet. Since rusty had to go to Massachusetts for something or another, it might be a few days before the code gets upgraded again.

Also, the topic bug isn't fixed yet, but I know what the problem is and will probably fix later on tonight. For now, if you want your story drop-down back, go to your display prefs and turn topic images back on.

I've given this some thought. (5.00 / 3) (#28)
by eann on Fri Jan 24, 2003 at 06:48:40 PM EST

Some options:

  • Western Massachusetts (or West Massachusetts). Advantage: it's what we already call it. Disadvantage: who has a positive opinion of West Virginia?
  • Quabbin. Advantages: would be only state that starts with a Q, at least until we annex Canada. Also, reminds Boston we can shut off the water any time we want. Disadvantages: sounds dorky, and other Native American words associated with this area aren't much better. Nonotuck? Norwottuck? Place-where-the-French-paid-us-to-kidnap-English-settlers-for-them? Plus, it'd be a real sting to have Amherst be an important city.
  • South Vermont. Advantage: we're just weird enough to pull it off. Disadvantage: Everyone would know we were weird enough to pull it off.
  • North Connecticut. Advantage: uh, no one else is using it? Disadvantages: isn't one Connecticut enough? Besides, postal abbreviation NC is taken.
  • Berkshire. Advantage: only 'B' state (see note about Canada above). Disadvantages: too many people say "berk-shYre" instead of "berk-sheer" or "berksher". And it doesn't really geographically reflect the Valley and northwestern Worcester county.
  • Newer York. Advantage: state motto could be "We'll get it right this time." Disadvantage: they'd still drive through on their way to Vermont, and probably find a way to do more damage.
  • East Dakota. This is my personal favorite. Advantages: no 'E' states (or Canadian provinces); we could lay claim to 1400 miles of the median of Interstate 90 and do stuff like build ramps to charge people toll for making a U-turn in Chicago. Disadvantage: "Dakota" is a Siouan word, and there weren't many Sioux around here—might piss somebody off. On the other hand, they're at least 1400 miles away; who cares?

Other alternatives (5.00 / 1) (#35)
by CaptainSuperBoy on Fri Jan 24, 2003 at 08:23:23 PM EST

Great ideas.. how about:
  • New Nevada. Holyoke and Palmer would most likely get their casinos if Western Mass seceded. After all, it's that fascist Boston legislature keeping us from gambling unless it pays for the big dig.
  • Springfield. There are many cities named Springfield, but the name hasn't graced a state... yet! You get a state and a giant Simpsons reference all in one.
  • Amherst. Well I'm partial to this one. Who better to name a state after, than good old Lord Jeffrey Amherst, a prominent bioterrorist and namesake?
Of course, the Northampton crowd would probably win out, and the state would end up being called Moon-Gaia-River-Tofu or some such crap.

Moon-Gaia-River-Tofu it is. A former neighbor of mine once described Hampshire County as "behind the tofu curtain".

That's the Noho (*gag*) crowd, of course. The Hamp crowd (i.e. people who have been there for more than 5 years) would be more amused by the Springfield option. Having married a Hamp native, I count myself among the latter. Besides, Mike Albano, de facto governor of Even-Farther-North-Carolina, keeps reminding me of Mayor Quimby. Man, wouldn't that get the Advocate in a snit? :)

Another interesting name would be Tallahassee. Still the wrong language group, but at least it means "hilly land". If we did that, though, we'd have to put the new capitol up at Whitcomb Summit in the town of Florida. Bonus: Vermont would no longer have the only state capitol without a McDonald's.

I thought leviramsey, ragabr, and I were the only East Dakotans on K5. Whereabouts are you? We should all get together sometime when they're back at the Zoo.

The Simpsons (5.00 / 2) (#38)
by leviramsey on Fri Jan 24, 2003 at 09:57:51 PM EST

My father has been pushing for years to get the City of Springfield to cut a deal with FOX to put a museum devoted the Simpsons in downtown Springfield. He was even planning to make such a museum part of a development he was planning to do with the Ravosa building in Court Square.

Then we build the Scooby Doo museum in Hadley, bring back Kevin Eastman's cartoon museum, and the state could be named Cartoonia!

Newer York. Advantage: state motto could be "We'll get it right this time." Disadvantage: they'd still drive through on their way to Vermont, and probably find a way to do more damage.

We stick a $1.00 toll for the section of I-91 north of Greenfield, with the booth situated between the northernmost exit and the state line.

I'm told that the same effect is seen on WinXP (I'm on 2k) and looking at the HTML source, the drop-down is completely missing. Given the previous bug where I couldn't see the comment display (editorial/topical) dropdown I thought that this may also be a subscriber thing, but I'm told that the problem exists for a non-subscriber too.

by aphrael on Fri Jan 24, 2003 at 05:53:25 PM EST

after it turned out that i get the same behavior, and trollaxor posted a story with no topic. it turns out to be related to having display of topic images with stories turned off; switching that preference back seems to cause the drop-down to come back.

Check display preferences (5.00 / 3) (#23)
by panner on Fri Jan 24, 2003 at 05:09:56 PM EST

Go to your display preferences and change "Show topic images with stories" to Yes. This will bring the topic drop down back, though it'll also bring back the topic images.

It's still a bug (since that pref should only disable the images, not topics all together), but turning them on in display prefs is a simple work-around.

Bug (5.00 / 9) (#9)
by CaptainSuperBoy on Fri Jan 24, 2003 at 03:12:22 PM EST

Dynamic mode works great except for a small bug. When there is a top-level comment with no replies, the buttons to expand and contract its subthread cause a JS error: Line 111, "Length is null or not an object". This happened on two PCs both running IE6 SP1 on Windows XP. It is the line

if(!a.length) return;

in the toggleList function. If there are no replies, a is undefined when you pass it in, so a.length causes an error.

It doesn't work in Opera 6, no matter how much I twiddle with it. Opera 6's javascript support isn't the best, as a matter of fact it is downright horrible which is shame considering its xhtml/html/css support is absoultely great.

Don't bother with pre-v7 Opera versions (5.00 / 4) (#44)
by gusnz on Sat Jan 25, 2003 at 12:47:04 AM EST

I was doing some tweaks to the dynamic comment code before the site update (which has put me royally out of sync :).

But anyway, pre-v7 Opera versions don't have great JavaScript support at all and really cannot manipulate document content on the fly. Opera 7 is much improved (proper support for innerHTML, appendChild, and most of the other required DOM1/2 standards) and I suggest you use that or try a Mozilla variant like Phoenix. Personally, since I'm addicted to tabbed browsing, I'm using MyIE2 which is a tabbed browser using the IE rendering engine -- some of you may find that useful.

Hope this clears things up a bit :).

Here:
http://www.blueturtle.a.se/download/comment_different_size.png

When I open a comment in dynamic mode, its typeface is larger than that of the rest of the page. (See the comment labeled "Nice".)

If I close the comment again, its label in closed mode is still that larger typeface. (See the label "I'm flattered" just below.)

I realize this may be because I use a beta version, but I thought I'd report it just in case. ::))
