Following a comment on the comments system, I thought I better do a quick update. Firstly, I’ve been very busy recently and as a result have not been posting as frequently or extensively as normal. This is inevitable, I’m afraid, and given that there are so many email subscribers (115 at last count, after I purged a few dormant ones) I would rather try to avoid ‘fillers’.
There is still a lot going on out there (or sometimes not, which is itself worthy of comment) and I’m planning a proper post for later today if I can make time.
As to the new comments system, WordPress have introduced a new feature which permits what is called ‘nesting’ of comments. This enables reply to a particular comment, which I thought might be useful on this blog. I’ve also reversed the order of comments, so that the most recent comments appear at the top of the list. I think this is an improvement as it avoids a lot of scrolling, although obviously at the expense of normal chronology.
Comments on useability welcome. There was no way not to make these changes retrospective and on the couple of old posts I looked at the nesting seemed mainly to work.
P.S. I looked for a stocking filler image for this post, but the results didn’t seem suitable.
