Expandable Comments

in pipedot on (#3F5)
Good news everyone! I've just pushed out the first version of expandable comments! They may still be a little rough around the edges, but you are welcome to try them out below or on any other story.

As for the nerdy details, the scripts are using jQuery to pull the raw comments in JSON format from the server. The two HTML5 slider elements control the display thresholds. Comments that are under the "Hide" threshold are completely hidden. Comments that are under the "Expand" threshold are collapsed. The rest of the comments are shown in full. Collapsed comments show the subject text + the first line of body text. You can click on any collapsed comment to expand it.

For those that prefer to be script free, we will offer an "Enable JavaScript" checkbox in your user settings page. Unchecking this option will present you with server-side-generated pages instead of the JavaScript enabled pages.

Do you happen to be using IE? I can't reproduce this on Firefox/Chrome and I can only reproduce it on IE once per reboot. I've found a slight delay on the transition from HTTP to HTTPS in IE due to checking the CRL. After the first HTTPS navigation, future transitions have no delay. Also, unchecking the "Check CRL" option in the IE settings prevents the delay.

For now, I'm just going to move the entire Sign In page to always be HTTPS; instead of waiting until the POST for the switchover.

P.S. The "Bugs" link at the bottom of every page will get you to the bugtracker if you find any more issues.
