Some Comment Links Changes

I've made some changes to the way Comments and PermaLinks work on the main index here at NSLog();. They It no longer opens popup windows, instead directing you to the #comments section of the individual article. Why? Mostly because I dislike popups, and partly because I didn't like getting email notifying me that someone posted to "mt-comments.cgi?entry_id=672" or something.

Then, to help things along, I replaced my Comment Listing template in MovableType with this:

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0; URL=<MTEntryPermalink>#comments">

Easy enough. We'll see how this goes. I may revert, I don't know… we'll see.

  1. Interesting, and something I like... I've never liked the pop-up either, and since I have about 10 blogs running for various people, under various domain names, I have to deal with all the BS of making MT generate the right things---which is often doesn't. This would be cleaner.

    Must think.

  2. But I'm not quite sure I like the fact that there's no extra space between individual comments. It's kind of dizzying.

  3. I wouldn't mind you changing back. I kind of like having the page itself not change, and instead have a window pop-up.

    Purely personal.
