Javascript on Journals: last call ( I mean it this time! )

The last code push included some small and not-so-small fixes to the javascript on journals beta. The biggest visible change is that various items have a completely different look -- this includes dialog boxes on your journal when you try to track comments, and the contextualhover menu. Further details are in my entry to dw-styles (Upcoming changes to contextual hover menu styling (beta) ).

I believe that all the worst bugs for javascript on journals have been reported and fixed. Soon we plan to switch everyone over to the new version, with the ability to opt-out in case any annoying bugs are found once it's had more eyes on it. We'll post about it when that happens.

Please continue to let us know in the comments if you run into any issues, so we can fix them ASAP!

I've been noticing something when you go through and use the hide comments option on a thread. Normally the first time it works fine. But if you go and hide the comments on a lower thread a good amount of the time the page scrolls up to the first thread I hid comments on. Yeah, I can scroll back down of course, but that just gets rather frustrating when trying to quickly go through and hide and expand stuff.

Love the new hover menus though. I can finally read them!

Sorry for the late response. I have Firefox 5.0.1. Windows 7, Add ons are adblock plus, noscript (which has DW allowed), greasemonkey, ljlogin, screengrab, stop autoplay, stylish, tab counter, tab mix plus, and tabs menu.

One page where it happens a lot is here: http://luceti.dreamwidth.org/5691.html?page=21#comments

Basically I go through the apps there to enter them into the game's spreadsheet. As I finish one, I like to hide the comments so I know it's done and expand the ones that aren't done.

One time I did notice that the link changed acting like I had commented there when I hadn't, but the more recent time it did not. But to give an idea of what happened here's a more specific instance. I went to hide the comments in this thread since the player never responded on revisions. When I did so, it scrolled up to a point in this thread. I hadn't actually linked the threads, that is more to give an idea of where I was and where it went to on that page. It tends to do that after I have hid comments on at least one thread and the location varies, just tends to be around another hidden thread, often about a third of the way down, so this gets more frustrating the further down I get.
