New Gripe About Commenting on Responses to Posts
May 2, 2007 1:21pm CST
I do not usually get too many responses to most of my posts so it hasn't upset me per se. However on my last post I had to comment on about 8 responses in a row. My gripe is that each time I post the comment on a response #11 and above, after posting it returns to page 1 instead of the page where I had just made the comment. Why am I upset?, you ask. When we respond to a post where our response appears on the 7th page (#61 and above) we are returned to the exact page where we posted our response. In this way we can immediately see our response and, if necessary, make any corrections before the poster gets to our response. QUESTION: Why can't both postings revert to the last page rather than the first page? If it can be done on one why can't it be done on another? Do you think this is too much to ask? or should I be considered "myLot complainer #1"? It's like the song...."little things mean a lot".

There is a trick, my lady. Did you tag your response? If you were given a choice, I am guessing you skipped the tag. When you skip the tagging, it jumps you back to the first page of the response. If you instead tag it with something, it will return you to the page where your response is. Try it. :P There is at least one exception though. I will tell you when you come across it LOL.

You are confusing me. I always put at least one tag on all my postings. However, I have to admit that I tag at the end of the discussion and not before posting it. Perhaps that is the secret. Other than that I don't have the faintest idea of what you have up your sleeve. Do tell. Always nice to see you. +

My lady, I beg your pardon. Would you communicate in English please? I have not the faintest idea what you are saying but don't mind me. I slipped on my diaper just now and soiled all over the place. I am off the clean up the mess now.

I'd say it would be even easier if there aren't any page loads involved at all but the responses simply work through an AJAX system, little button to make an entry box appear and then directly being able to respond from the page itself.

You are probably right....I have no idea what the AJAX system. I am an old hag with little computer experience who's only claim to fame is an incurable disease called...diahrrea of the fingers, i.e., I love to type. If there is an easier way that will save me time I am all for it. Thanks for dropping by again dude. +
