Love it you all are beautiful people and make this site a joy to use

Directions from Blacksburg to whoville, go north till you smell it then go east until you step in it

I would pay more for this.

Your best? Losers always whine about their best. Winners go home and FUCK the prom queen!

I think something is broke. When I hit "m" It just takes me to a gif of Emma Watson.

Oh.

I found TKP after two rails from TOTS then walking back to my apartment and re-watching the 2012 Sugar Bowl. I woke up the next day with this username.

It almost seems like you're saying it like it's a bad thing

For when you hit mobile, I wanted to keep a 4-button layout but add "M" there too. By default they scroll "down" the page, but right-most button allows you to "flip" direction.

Clever design, it works really well.

I have one complaint, the new button is too far to the left that its not comfortable for one hand browsing. It used to be new up on the left, but now it's new down and I keep hitting green down instead.

Other than button order for right handed people I like the feature/layout on mobile.

Joe, after reading this comment, probably

That is my one and only complaint, but I thought that was more about me being lazy than anything else so I didn't bring it up. So thank you.

being overly picky about peoples UI is what I was born to do!

M isn't doing anything for me, what's it supposed to do?

Take you to your own comments on a page

"Why gobble gobble chumps asks such good questions, I will never know." - TheFifthFuller

There's been a long-standing request to scroll through your own comments on a thread. The "m" key will do that for you.

Man people are really selfish huh? It's like this whole website isn't even about tech sports but rather leg count. *checks personal leg count* shit only 127th!?!? Fuck!

Ask me no questions, and I'll tell you no lies

It's also a way for TKPers to remain engaged with the discussions they're having. Cycling through ones replies in a thread facilitates that by providing an easy mechanism to poll replies of an entire sub-thread.

Obviously it's a good idea, I was just making a joke for legs. Damnit joe I'm far behind.

Ask me no questions, and I'll tell you no lies


Joe coming in clutch with the new features!

Grandma is that you?

Using /s is for cowards.

No joke, my sister and I sent our grandmothers flowers for Valentines day. Dad's mom responded with a lengthy thank you text, with emojis included. Mom's mom sent one text with just the letter "N".

Guys...check the "comments" link in the menu...

...exactly what I asked for. Must be my on-time payment of 12 touchdowns.

Edit: not working for me? I think it's supposed to jump to my recent comments that have an unread reply, but I get this message: "All comment replies are read." There was an un-read reply on my third post down. (latest iOS, iPhone 8s, on both Chrome & Safari)

Great update. Thanks Joe!

Love the new feature. It will take months for my thumb to default to a new position and not just hit T instead of N down...

I'm glad I'm not the only one.

PS: Joe, as an almost exclusively mobile user, I really appreciate how great TKP works on mobile. It's awesome.

It works, but the change has seriously messed up the header when the window is half the screen. It doesn't collapse the menu. It looks like the following:

What's your browser/OS/device? I only ever got issues when using iPad in a landscape format (or maybe the other way round), but I'm seeing nothing as I test it now.

A window shrunk down? I wonder if it can be made to nest into a drop down menu like the phones. Just reread your comment about the menu not collapsing.

Apologies for resurrecting this thread, but I'm not seeing the buttons, at all, on my iPad in landscape format. Any thoughts?

They're not there. And I really dislike the way the layout changes in portrait mode. I much prefer browsing in landscape. So, if I want to use the buttons, I click into a thread in landscape, rotate and use the buttons. And yes, it's a ridiculous as it sounds.

They are target by screen resolution, and once you go landscape, the width of the screen exceeds the maximum amount of pixels it is applicable for.

Hard refresh the page. I tested on the latest Chrome, Firefox, and IE 11 without issue. What browser and version are you running?

I use google chrome. I'll have to check it tomorrow. My computer is off for the night.

Joe: is the "unread comment replies" button on the Comments tab supposed to take me to my comments that have unread replies? If so, it isn't working; it returns "all comment replies are read", when I can scroll down and see unread replies exist.

Thanks for the hard work!

___

-What we do is, if we need that extra push, you know what we do? -Put it up to fully dipped? -Fully dipped. Exactly. It's dork magic.

So if my comment says "2 replies; 2 unread," then it should appear here? It isn't doing that for me (iPhone and Mac, chrome & safari for both)

___

-What we do is, if we need that extra push, you know what we do? -Put it up to fully dipped? -Fully dipped. Exactly. It's dork magic.

I am not sure if this helps or not, but as soon as you click on the thread in question, those notifications clear. So if you go there and look in your unread replies and click on it, it will take you to that thread and clear the notifications. And then you can mash that M key and find your post.

Your best? Losers always whine about their best. Winners go home and FUCK the prom queen!

Yeah, that's a great way to use it.

Thing is it isn't taking me to the thread. I intentionally didn't open it.

Suppose I ask it this way: has anyone used the feature successfully?

___

-What we do is, if we need that extra push, you know what we do? -Put it up to fully dipped? -Fully dipped. Exactly. It's dork magic.

Yes. You go to "unread comment replies", it tells you the thread (with link) and the first few words of your comment. Then you click the link. It takes you to thread. You hit 'm' to jump quickly to your comment.

EDIT: maybe the issue is using multiple tabs for TKP? I know a lot of us do that, so it's possible someone replied to you in a thread you had open while you were making a different reply, then when your comment posted and the thread refreshed, it considered the reply as having been "read". This just happened to me.

"Why gobble gobble chumps asks such good questions, I will never know." - TheFifthFuller

I haven't opened the thread with unread replies, just so that I could test that button. All it does is say I have no unread replies.

Weird.

-What we do is, if we need that extra push, you know what we do? -Put it up to fully dipped? -Fully dipped. Exactly. It's dork magic.

Are the unread replies in that thread replies to YOUR comment? (E.g. this comment is a direct reply to you)

"Why gobble gobble chumps asks such good questions, I will never know." - TheFifthFuller

Yes. And this one worked! I'm guessing older threads weren't grandfathered in?

___

-What we do is, if we need that extra push, you know what we do? -Put it up to fully dipped? -Fully dipped. Exactly. It's dork magic.

That's correct, moving forward though it should work flawlessly.

Glad to see I'm not the only narcissist who regularly checks in to see how their own comments are doing

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

ah there it is... it takes you to your own comment(s).

Thanks for always trying to make TKP a little bit better, Joe! We appreciate you and all the content producers hard work.

Now finish up them taters; I'm gonna go fondle my sweaters.

Love it.

I've never programmed anything with users. (Dumb front end guy over here)

I do have questions if this is an AMA:

1.) What language is this programmed in?
2.) How does it distinguish user comments from other comments, is it data attributes?
3.) If there is more than one comment from you how does it know to go to the next one of yours when you hit 'm' again and not just revert back to the first comment?

1. It's a LAMP stack. That's Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP; all the server-side code is PHP.

2. The session keeps track of authenticated users. When an authenticated user requests a page from the server, it does a check against who wrote the comment and which user is authenticated in the session, and if it matches, it uses a css class to denote the comment as "yours".

3. There are three separate client-side buffers (top comments, new comments, your comments) tracking which comment is "current".

Thats awesome. and thank you for indulging my questions I had no idea it was built in PHP.

so is the "data-cid" like a time stamp or does it know a comment is read with something like a "if comment 'in-view' then become 'read' type thing?

Sorry - dont mean to nerd out, I just think this stuff is cool learning how server/backend-esque stuff works.

That's the unique comment ID, used on the front-end for collapsing comments. (That's actually something I want to stop storing in a cookie and persist in the database. That was it is available across devices and only for authenticated users.)

Right on. Right on

That's actually something I want to stop storing in a cookie

YES YES YES!!!

Is it basketball season yet?

I think the 't' functionality has stopped. Doesn't work for me on either desktop or mobile

Should be good to go now. Thanks for pointing that out. Might have to do a hard refresh to pull across the latest code.

Sweet, just checked and can confirm its working for me.

Had a 13-1/2' tin man in my creek bottom when I lived in Giles. He pretty much always had a VT magnet on him. Had a little Cairn Terrier dog just like Toto named Ziti, and the first movie I ever saw was The Wizard of Oz, and I've watched it dozens of times over the years. That tin man was passed along to Hokie friends when we left Giles, and currently resides on Mt. Lake Road in Giles, there on the left as you go up. Say hey and honk at Harold when you go by. Named for a supervisor at Precision Metals where he was made, he's still standing guard and sporting a VT, I believe.

Joe. I'm showing the website non secure now at the top of my iPhone. Is that an issue? Didn't want to start a new thread for that question.

I think Joe said he was working on switching to https

It's indicating the page is served via http instead of https. The internet as a whole is making a push towards https. Right now only authentication and TKPC registration are served across https, but I am working to move the whole site in that direction.
