"Next Page" comment links not working

Say for example, http://lambda-the-ultimate.org/node/4535#comment-73053, it loads the first page, and can't jump to the comment because its on the second page.

When I complained about this a few years ago, I was told (paraphrasing): if you're at the comment limit, it's probably time to stop commenting; LtU is not a discussion forum.

Yet, I also believe this is an unnecessary annoyance.

I actually think it is an annoying bug. Does anyone know if newer versions of drupal fixed this? Remember that though we are all hackers here (or pretend to be), LtU is pretty much a vanilla drupal site and we plan on keeping it that way for the foreseeable future unless someone has the time to donate.

It's a good way to fix the ever-narrowing post problem.

If you can figure out how to jump to comments on a second page (etc) then shorter pages (say, 20 posts) would be a very good solution to the ever-narrowing post usability problem we encounter when quoting.

It's easy to widen the posts

It's easy to widen the posts at the margin. Just use a pre block with a bunch of space. But it would probably be better to hide the deeply threaded comments and break those into separate links (because, by the time they're deeply threaded, they tend to be far off topic).

I know nothing about Drupal. I know as much as I want to know about Drupal. So I can't say how hard these things are. But I would guess that an easy fix to the "next page" issue would probably be to remove the limit.

How many language hackers

How many language hackers does it take to fix a bug in drupal? Zero, they are satisfied with explaining why you should use a cms built in haskell instead :-)

How about PG's hackernews code written in....Lisp.

How many language hackers

How many language hackers does it take to fix a bug in drupal? Zero, they are satisfied with debating which esoteric language the CMOS should be written in.

I think this version is much closer to the truth. Thanks.

Ideally, it should come in the <head> block, but it can go in the body, as well, if that's easier.
