New with this code push, including fixes so that the JS always works even when expanding multiple layers, e.g., even after viewing answers, or after expanding a cut:

  • polls

  • media placeholders

  • contextual hover

  • expand all cut tags module



And a couple of tweaks, chiefly:

  • fix quick reply overlapping content in some layouts

  • make screened/delete/etc work for expanded comments

If you're participating in the JQuery conversion beta test, report any issues you find here!

Currently, here are the things that have been implemented (and not implemented):

Implemented

Cut expand and collapse
Logging in
Screen/freeze/delete
Control strip injection for non-supporting journals
Quick reply
Thread expander

Not implemented

Contextual hover
Media embed placeholder expansion
Same-page poll submission
Icon browser
Same-page comment tracking


(This means that if you try to do something on the "not implemented" list while you have the beta features turned on, you'll be routed to the non-Javascript/non-inline version. That isn't a bug and you don't have to report it, but you should report anything else that's weird or that doesn't behave the way it used to!)

At long last there are specific things that need doing!

For some background, check out [staff profile] denise's explanation of technical debt. One of the things she mentions near the end is that we need to mingle JQuery with the existing Javascript the site uses.

This is a big change for how the site works, and it means that things could go wrong when it goes live. We now have a way you can turn on beta testing so that we can see how the new code will operate on a day-to-day basis.

If you want to check it out, you can! If you notice any weird behavior, please let us know - you can comment here.

A couple things to note: not all the features you might enjoy right now will be available in beta testing, because not everything has been rewritten yet. There's a list available on that same page, and you don't need to report those things because our excellent devs are already working on them.

At any point in time if you want to switch back, you can just go to the same page and turn beta features off.
