Is it just me, or is not the ui/ux of multi-page topics just not good? Could there be a way to fix it or to enforce things can't be bigger than one page, or can we all start teaching ourselves that we should start new pages or something?
When I go to the "recent posts" and see some posts on some topic, I click on the topic title (not the individual *'s new posts in the "recent posts" list) and then if they are on anything other than page 1 i can't find them.
On posting a comment, I get:
user error: Incorrect key file for table './ltu/cache.MYI'; try to repair it query: DELETE FROM cache WHERE expire != 0 AND expire
Does Drupal have a plug-in for supporting up/down voting things? I want to tell people who posted that i'm excited about their post even though i am too uneducated/ignorant/clueless to be able to actually post anything relevant other than, "w00t!" Can somebody pretty please install such a feature? :-) It would be nice to be able to sort the "Recent Posts" by that as well. :-)
I added a new category "Scientific Programming" for discussions of, well, issues related to languages targeting scientific programming.
The site math viewer is consistently crashing my iPad; it makes a note that it is trying to load something math.js for awhile before Safari just dies. Either this is an iOS issue, or an iOS + great firewall issue (if the font files aren't hosted locally, they are usually hosted by a blocked-in-china google).
LtU now supports MathJax, which allows the use of TeX markup in posts and comments. Note that only TeX/LaTeX markup is currently supported - the alternate MathML format conflict's with the blog's HTML sanitization.
This enhancement is dedicated to neelk, who most recently suggested this feature just over a year ago.
When I went searching for a bit of Mathjax-compatible LaTeX that was relevant to programming languages, the first good example Google found for me was on Neel's blog:
Copy-pasting the above and making it work immediately made it clear that we're going to need a package of useful macros. But it's a start. Feedback welcome.
I thought it was just summer, but now that fall is here, the site still feels kind of quiet.
I tried to post a link to my posting:
but it just posts a link to the first page of a 2-page discussion and doesn't connect to my posting. Seems broken.
Steps to reproduce:
a) View a forum topic in a collapsed view, say collapsed threaded.
This is the reason for this empty comment of mine. I couldn't see any way to delete the comment after I'd moved it to the right place.
Perhaps it would be less confusing if the form on a comment url replied to that url? That's what HN does. Or we could follow reddit and get rid of that form altogether.
I've been bouncing around between views as a way to make sure I don't miss any comments. What do others do? Does everyone use the global track page? It seems unsatisfying for some reason (partly I keep forgetting it exists). And the asterisks feel unreliable because I'm afraid I navigated away without reading all of them.
