Here’s some things I’ve picked up about Drupal while at SFX.
- Watching for comments by clicking on the posts is a waste, it’s much easier to check for new comments/read new posts by browsing the Spreading Firefox category. These are in the latest “Blogs” sidebar anyway, but all 10 can be viewed in two pages instead of ten.
- To link directly to a comment, there is a better method than linking to the “reply to this comment” page. Try clicking reply to this comment, then replacing comment/reply with node/view, this allows the viewer of the URI to view both the node (blog post) and comment (just the one you wanted).
- To link directly to a discussion, highlight the title of the first comment you want to link to, and the text before that. “View selection source” and find the comment-19161 tag in there (19161 is a random number), then append #comment-19161 to the end of the current URI. This links directly to that comment, and a user can easily see the context by scrolling up or down.
Thats all I can think of right now, but hopefully I’ll have a part 2 later on.
edit later on; comments on this post are off, this is the number one most-spam-attempts on the blog ever, and im tired of marking them as such.
