P8TT housekeeping: Threaded comments and photo banner

Community/Meta

By Adam Bink

Two housekeeping updates, folks.

First is that we may have found a silver bullet in the form of a plugin that will enable threaded comments to return (as well as add other cool commenting features, like replying to comments via e-mail if you’re not at a computer). Our tech wizard will be installing it late tonight, and we’ll take it for a test drive tomorrow morning.

The second is that as I posted a few months ago, we are going to add more photos of this community to the banner. While we love the gents currently up there, it’s time for some more diversity to show the faces of equality! The photos will rotate as you go to or reload pages. We’re starting with about 20 now to see how it handles, and will add more in the coming months.

As with many site updates, these two adjustments may cause hiccups on the blog tomorrow, so please (a) be patient (b) give feedback on what you see and how it’s working, either in the comments or by dropping me a line via adam AT couragecampaign DOT org . I think both will make this blog a better place in advance of the big Prop 8 hearing day on Monday, when we can show off our colors and have a robust dialogue.

Thanks, all.

    How's the shoulder doing?

  • 7. Sheryl Carver  |  June 8, 2011 at 8:01 am

    Hi Mike, Den and Elphie! What a gorgeous family for our banner!

  • 12. Adam Bink  |  June 8, 2011 at 11:34 am

    @nightshayde The shoulder is healing slowly, but surely. Last week I was able to brush my teeth without much pain. A minor, but moral, victory. Physical therapy starts at the end of the month.

  • 13. Sheryl, Mormon Mothe  |  June 8, 2011 at 11:47 am

    Looking forward to tomorrow and the return of "reply to".

    Love the new photo banner too! Just sitting there reloading the page to look at them all!!

  • 15. Adam Bink  |  June 8, 2011 at 7:48 pm

    This is a test comment. Test 123, anything but that.

  • 16. Adam Bink  |  June 8, 2011 at 7:48 pm

    Wow, Adam, I love your comment.

  • 17. Adam Bink  |  June 8, 2011 at 7:57 pm

    Folks, we're aware there's a comment deletion problem. Checking into it.

  • 18. Adam Bink  |  June 8, 2011 at 8:04 pm

    Folks, comments haven't imported over yet, which is why you're seeing them missing.

  • 19. adambink  |  June 8, 2011 at 8:07 pm

    Testing a newishcomment.

  • 20. adambink  |  June 8, 2011 at 8:33 pm

    Comments from January 2010 through early March of this year are imported as of this comment. The rest are making their way in.

  • 21. Linda  |  June 8, 2011 at 9:28 pm

    Love the new pictures!

  • 22. SFBay  |  June 8, 2011 at 9:34 pm

    I love the pictures. BTW, the photo of Terri and Morgan is me and my wife :)

  • 23. Malacandra  |  June 8, 2011 at 9:41 pm

    That's a particularly sweet picture, IMO.

  • 24. justjoel  |  June 9, 2011 at 12:18 am

    Am I just dumb, or am I missing something here? I still don't see a "reply" button on each post. Is this because I'm viewing this on a mobile device (iPod)?

  • 25. adambink  |  June 9, 2011 at 3:35 am

    Folks, comments haven't imported over yet, which is why you're seeing them missing. Comments from January 2010 through early March of this year are now in the bag, and the rest are making their way in (we have 113,000!).

  • 27. Sagesse  |  June 9, 2011 at 5:06 am

    Posting a reply, just 'cause I can :). Feels like I've been talking to myself.

    The site looks crisp and clean, and the pictures in the banner are delightful.

  • 28. Peterplumber  |  June 9, 2011 at 6:05 am

    Posting a reply to your reply, just to see if it works & how it looks.

    Oh, even tho I am signed in to WP, I still have to add my name to get this comment to post.

  • 29. Gregory in SLC  |  June 9, 2011 at 6:30 am

    I like the banner pictures too…and LOVE replying to a person instead of just posting to whoever in the universe….thank you Sagesse keeping us going through this transition time with your articles and optimism : D love, Gregory

  • 30. Gregory in SLC  |  June 9, 2011 at 6:33 am

    I had that same problem…it asked me to login again, but won't take my password so ended up typing my name and email manually. Also had to shorten my usual name from Gregory in Salt Lake City as I got an error name was too long…..and having to type name and email again to post this second comment.

  • 31. Kate  |  June 9, 2011 at 7:02 am

    I just HAD to use the "new" reply feature, so thought I'd try it out on you, Gregory!!!!!!!! Love it, love it, love it. Thank you Adam!!!! The changing photos are terrific, too.

  • 32. Ann S.  |  June 9, 2011 at 7:45 am

    I can reply to Sagesse now! Yay!!!!

    Thank you again for all the helpful links you post, Sagesse!!

    Thank you, Adam, for the new format!!!!!

  • 33. Kate  |  June 9, 2011 at 7:53 am

  • 35. Kate  |  June 9, 2011 at 8:18 am

    Hi, Michguy!

  • 36. peterplumber  |  June 9, 2011 at 8:30 am

    Love to you and to your hubby.

    PS, today is my birthday. Don't tell anyone.

  • 37. Davep  |  June 9, 2011 at 8:40 am

    Happy Birthday, Peterplumber!

    Sooo nice to be able to reply directly to tell you that! Thanks Adam & everyone working on the P8TT improvements!

  • 38. davep  |  June 9, 2011 at 8:41 am

    I just spent several minutes clicking the refresh button jsut so I could see all the happy families at the top of the page : ) You all look fabulous!

  • 39. Ann S.  |  June 9, 2011 at 8:46 am

    Happy Birthday, Peterplumber! Don't worry, I shan't tell a soul!

  • 40. Ann S.  |  June 9, 2011 at 8:48 am

    But I'm not sure I remembered to subscribe, so I'm only getting notifications of replies to my comments. Let's see if I can rectify that.

    ETA: OMG, I can edit my comment. ::swoons from the excitement::

  • 41. adambink  |  June 9, 2011 at 8:54 am

    You bet.

  • 42. fiona64  |  June 9, 2011 at 8:54 am

    Happy birthday, Peterplumber!

  • 43. adambink  |  June 9, 2011 at 8:54 am

    faaaaaaaancy, no?

  • 44. Ann S.  |  June 9, 2011 at 8:57 am

    Woooo, my brother and BIL are in the banner!!!! Love it, love it, love it!!

  • 45. davep  |  June 9, 2011 at 9:25 am

    Wooooow, how many levels of "reply" do we have now??? Sweet!

  • 46. Kate  |  June 9, 2011 at 9:49 am

    Where's the edit feature???? I'm probably staring right at it and don't see it….

  • 47. adambink  |  June 9, 2011 at 10:01 am

    A very happy birthday, Peter! Take it easy.

  • 48. Mark Mead-Brewer  |  June 9, 2011 at 11:54 am

    Happy Birthday Peter….your secret is safe with me :-)

  • 49. Carpool Cookie  |  June 9, 2011 at 11:56 am

    I'm going to rent-a-spouse for an afternoon so my pic goes up there with everyone else!!!! Maybe 10 kids, too. And 4 calling birds….

  • 50. JonT  |  June 9, 2011 at 1:27 pm

    Just testing. Looks really nice.

  • 51. JonT  |  June 9, 2011 at 1:29 pm

    … Replying to myself… Do I need to setup new login credentials somewhere?

    Hmm. I'll try OpenID here.

  • 52. JonT  |  June 9, 2011 at 1:33 pm

    Ahhh… OpenID using my blogspot URL seems to work nicely. Fills in the Name, email and website by itself now. Neat.

    And this threaded interface looks a lot nicer than the old one :)

    However, I seelcted 'subscribe to all comments' and the link I got in the mail failed:

    Unable to validate
    Validation code: 71c47d7ba953cb6f08c5a9a7d91a96e0

    (Will try some bolding (above) too :)

  • 53. Kate  |  June 9, 2011 at 1:40 pm

    Testing, testing. I'm still trying to find the way to edit, even though Nightshayde so kindly explained. I thought at first it was because I wasn't logged in, so I did that. I'm beginning to wonder if the layout I see is different from what others see? Like maybe my computer is blocking something?

  • 54. Kate  |  June 9, 2011 at 1:41 pm

    Nope. Still no way for me to edit. Snif.

  • 55. wedding flutes  |  June 13, 2011 at 5:03 pm
