I’ve been having an intermittent problem for several months where nothing happens when I click to expand the public comments in an article. I finally figured out how to reproduce it today. (You need “Only show comments from friends” for this.)
It seems to affect the 2nd and subsequent articles I open. For example, just picking randomly from the global shared stories now (https://www.newsblur.com/folder/globa…), if I click on the comments “+” for this article:
I can expand the comments, but if I then click on the “+” for this one:
This happens with multiple browsers (Safari, Chrome, Firefox) on OS X.
I can’t reproduce it. What’s your username?
Were you able to reproduce this?
Short of installing the NewsBlur server locally, is there anything else I can do to help?
If you want to try using an uncompressed JS, head to debug.newsblur.com.
Thanks. So, I found out the function that’s supposed to be getting called is load_public_story_comments. I put a breakpoint in there and it only triggers on the first story:
When I click on the “+” for the 2nd story, I end up here instead:
Hope that helps.
Hmm, is the story unread? Do you use a setting that keeps stories unread for a bit? Anyway, I logged into your account and public comments were loading just fine. Can you offer the exact routine you went through from load?
Yes, the story was unread; I only had unread stories visible. “Mark a story as read” is set to “Immediately”.
Here’s a video. I only interacted with NewsBlur with the mouse in it.
Thanks for your immense help! Tracked down the bug and fixed it. Now deployed.
