  • - Some archived threads are not visible to normal users
  • </details>
  • <details><summary>As of 97cdf0f1</summary>
  • - add title text for archived/deleted threads in the summary view under the post
  • - [Ability to collapse preview of thread](https://a.dev.codidact.org/comments/thread/45)
  • - [Bump threads on new comment](https://a.dev.codidact.org/comments/thread/46) (Sort by last comment rather than number of comments)
  • - 500 error on https://a.dev.codidact.org/mod/comments, the mod "list all comments" page
  • - In ping suggestions, clicking on the ID `<span>` instead of the name inserts `@#undefined`
  • - Ping suggestions don't close when the current text becomes invalid (too short/space etc)
  • - Deleted threads are not listed under the post, even for Curators
  • - Using "Disable Comments" > "Purge all comments" prevents un-deletion of the threads deleted.
  • - Unable to view comments on your own post that has been deleted. You can see the post and the threads under the post, but you are unable to preview or open the threads.
  • </details>
  • <details><summary>As of 38f3e13f</summary>
  • - Change "show N comment threads" to "show all N comment threads" or "show (N-shown) more comment threads". When I clicked on "show 9" I expected to see 9 more things show up. (done)
  • - Show X threads does not take into account deleted threads that you can see (fixed)
  • - Convert to comments doesn't work for Curators, even though it's on the tools list for them. (fixed)
  • </details>
  • <details><summary>As of 5edbdca9</summary>
  • - Starting a thread with an initial comment with less than 15 characters creates the comment thread but doesn't create a comment in that thread, leading to a zero-length thread that says it has one comment for some reason. (fixed)
  • - Unable to see own deleted comments. (by-design)
  • - Can see threads even without permission to see post. (fixed)
  • * Users can read threads of deleted posts. (There is a notice where the reply would be saying "Comments are disabled on deleted posts.")

  • - [follow/unfollow doesn't work for non-moderators](https://a.dev.codidact.org/comments/thread/33). (fixed)
  • - 500 server error when attempting to create a new thread (fixed)
  • - Comment > Edit > Discard Edit removes comment from view (fixed)
  • - Unable to view comments when not signed in. You can see the post and the threads under the post, but you are unable to preview or open the threads. (should be fixed)
  • - If the 'Post Feedback' thread is deleted, new flags from anybody add comments to the deleted thread. In this deleted ([example](https://a.dev.codidact.org/comments/thread/13)), a thread with two comments was deleted by a mod, and then two users (one mod and one not) used the "needs author attention" flag, adding new comments to the deleted thread where the author is unlikely to see them. (Monica) (fixed)
  • - "Convert to comment" tool isn't implemented, apparently (it just deletes the post) (fixed)
  • - "Disable Comments" > "Purge all comments" deletes the comments in threads instead of the threads themselves. (fixed)
  • - Threads purged via this method do not update their comment count, they show how many comments there were before deletion (fixed)
  • - Using the "author attention" flag to leave a comment generates a "mod will look at your flag" message, which is not true (not really a flag). If we keep this flag we should change that messaging. Alternatively, maybe we should remove the flag path and tell people to just leave comments. (We want something like this for *close votes*, but that's different.) (Monica) (fixed)

  • ### Current Issues
  • - Update Ability help pages (currently thread tools require Curate)
  • - Some archived threads are not visible to normal users
  • - Tentative assessment: According to Art, archived posts don't appear by default; and are made visible by clicking "show more". However, posts such as https://a.dev.codidact.org/posts/48 don't have the "show more" button, because they do not have the required number of threads.
  • - [Thread count is wrong](https://a.dev.codidact.org/posts/129#answer-129)
  • [Here in the code](https://github.com/codidact/qpixel/blob/38f3e13f9cf04fe1d21f51ff68624d4b2be8537b/app/models/comment_thread.rb#L11) we define the number of "visible comments"
  • ```ruby
  • scope :publicly_available, -> { where(deleted: false, archived: false).where('reply_count > 0') }
  • ```
  • Then this is used [here](https://github.com/codidact/qpixel/blob/38f3e13f9cf04fe1d21f51ff68624d4b2be8537b/app/views/posts/_expanded.html.erb#L434)
  • ```ruby
  • <% public_threads = post.comment_threads.publicly_available.order(reply_count: :desc) %>
  • <% visible_count = current_user&.has_post_privilege?('flag_curate', post) ? post.comment_threads.count : public_threads.count %>
  • // ...
  • Show all <%= visible_count %> comment <%= 'thread'.pluralize(visible_count) %>
  • ```
  • That is, we only count items that have more than one comment and are not archived. This is why it ignores the archived and zero-comment threads and says there are only 8 threads instead of 10, even though the two are visible in the UI.

  • ## In the interests of keeping this post organized, please do not use the comments here for testing
  • ### Current Issues
  • - Unable to view comments on your own post that has been deleted. You can see the post and the threads under the post, but you are unable to preview or open the threads.
  • - Update Ability help pages (currently thread tools require Curate)
  • - 500 error on https://a.dev.codidact.org/mod/comments, the mod "list all comments" page
  • - In ping suggestions, clicking on the ID `<span>` instead of the name inserts `@#undefined`
  • - Ping suggestions don't close when the current text becomes invalid (too short/space etc)
  • - Deleted threads are not listed under the post, even for Curators
  • - Using "Disable Comments" > "Purge all comments" prevents un-deletion of the threads deleted.
  • - [Thread count is wrong (but can't tell why)](https://a.dev.codidact.org/posts/129#answer-129)
  • ### Feature / Change Requests
  • Please discuss these changes in the linked threads
  • - [Ability to cancel a comment](https://a.dev.codidact.org/comments/thread/40)
  • - [Ability to collapse preview of thread](https://a.dev.codidact.org/comments/thread/45)
  • - [Bump threads on new comment](https://a.dev.codidact.org/comments/thread/46) (Sort by last comment rather than number of comments)
  • - [Change "link" to "copy link"](https://a.dev.codidact.org/comments/thread/41)
  • - [Posting a comment adds to the browser history, so when you hit the back button it doesn't return you to the previous page but keeps you on the thread.](https://a.dev.codidact.org/comments/thread/47)
  • - add title text for archived/deleted threads in the summary view under the post
  • ### Resolved
  • <details><summary>As of 38f3e13f</summary>
  • - Change "show N comment threads" to "show all N comment threads" or "show (N-shown) more comment threads". When I clicked on "show 9" I expected to see 9 more things show up. (done)
  • - Show X threads does not take into account deleted threads that you can see (fixed)
  • - Convert to comments doesn't work for Curators, even though it's on the tools list for them. (fixed)
  • </details>
  • <details><summary>As of 5edbdca9</summary>
  • - Starting a thread with an initial comment with less than 15 characters creates the comment thread but doesn't create a comment in that thread, leading to a zero-length thread that says it has one comment for some reason. (fixed)
  • - Unable to see own deleted comments. (by-design)
  • - Can see threads even without permission to see post. (fixed)
  • * Users can read threads of deleted posts. (There is a notice where the reply would be saying "Comments are disabled on deleted posts.")
  • * Restrictions on categories/posts do not carry over to threads - all users can see and post in threads regardless on if they can access the post
  • - [follow/unfollow doesn't work for non-moderators](https://a.dev.codidact.org/comments/thread/33). (fixed)
  • - 500 server error when attempting to create a new thread (fixed)
  • - Comment > Edit > Discard Edit removes comment from view (fixed)
  • - Unable to view comments when not signed in. You can see the post and the threads under the post, but you are unable to preview or open the threads. (should be fixed)
  • - If the 'Post Feedback' thread is deleted, new flags from anybody add comments to the deleted thread. In this deleted ([example](https://a.dev.codidact.org/comments/thread/13)), a thread with two comments was deleted by a mod, and then two users (one mod and one not) used the "needs author attention" flag, adding new comments to the deleted thread where the author is unlikely to see them. (Monica) (fixed)
  • - "Convert to comment" tool isn't implemented, apparently (it just deletes the post) (fixed)
  • - "Disable Comments" > "Purge all comments" deletes the comments in threads instead of the threads themselves. (fixed)
  • - Threads purged via this method do not update their comment count, they show how many comments there were before deletion (fixed)
  • - Using the "author attention" flag to leave a comment generates a "mod will look at your flag" message, which is not true (not really a flag). If we keep this flag we should change that messaging. Alternatively, maybe we should remove the flag path and tell people to just leave comments. (We want something like this for *close votes*, but that's different.) (Monica) (fixed)
  • - Deleted threads are not listed under the post, even for moderators (fixed)

  • [Here in the code](https://github.com/codidact/qpixel/blob/38f3e13f9cf04fe1d21f51ff68624d4b2be8537b/app/models/comment_thread.rb#L11) we define the number of "visible comments"
  • ```ruby
  • scope :publicly_available, -> { where(deleted: false, archived: false).where('reply_count > 0') }
  • ```
  • Then this is used [here](https://github.com/codidact/qpixel/blob/38f3e13f9cf04fe1d21f51ff68624d4b2be8537b/app/views/posts/_expanded.html.erb#L434)
  • ```ruby
  • Show all <%= visible_count %> comment <%= 'thread'.pluralize(visible_count) %>
  • ```
  • That is, we only count items that have more than one comment and are not archived. This is why it ignores the archived and zero-comment threads and says there are only 8 threads instead of 10, even though the two are visible in the UI.

  • ### Feature / Change Requests
  • Please discuss these changes in the linked threads
  • - [Ability to cancel a comment](https://a.dev.codidact.org/comments/thread/40)
  • - [Ability to collapse preview of thread](https://a.dev.codidact.org/comments/thread/45)
  • - [Bump threads on new comment](https://a.dev.codidact.org/comments/thread/46) (Sort by last comment rather than number of comments)
  • - [Change "link" to "copy link"](https://a.dev.codidact.org/comments/thread/41)
  • - [Posting a comment adds to the browser history, so when you hit the back button it doesn't return you to the previous page but keeps you on the thread.](https://a.dev.codidact.org/comments/thread/47)
  • - add title text for archived/deleted threads in the summary view under the post
  • ### Resolved
  • As of 38f3e13f
  • - Change "show N comment threads" to "show all N comment threads" or "show (N-shown) more comment threads". When I clicked on "show 9" I expected to see 9 more things show up. (done)
  • - Show X threads does not take into account deleted threads that you can see (fixed)
  • - Convert to comments doesn't work for Curators, even though it's on the tools list for them. (fixed)
  • As of 5edbdca9
  • - Starting a thread with an initial comment with less than 15 characters creates the comment thread but doesn't create a comment in that thread, leading to a zero-length thread that says it has one comment for some reason. (fixed)
  • - Unable to see own deleted comments. (by-design)
  • - Can see threads even without permission to see post. (fixed)
  • * Users can read threads of deleted posts. (There is a notice where the reply would be saying "Comments are disabled on deleted posts.")
  • * Restrictions on categories/posts do not carry over to threads - all users can see and post in threads regardless on if they can access the post
  • - [follow/unfollow doesn't work for non-moderators](https://a.dev.codidact.org/comments/thread/33). (fixed)
  • - 500 server error when attempting to create a new thread (fixed)
  • - Comment > Edit > Discard Edit removes comment from view (fixed)
  • - Unable to view comments when not signed in. You can see the post and the threads under the post, but you are unable to preview or open the threads. (should be fixed)
  • - If the 'Post Feedback' thread is deleted, new flags from anybody add comments to the deleted thread. In this deleted ([example](https://a.dev.codidact.org/comments/thread/13)), a thread with two comments was deleted by a mod, and then two users (one mod and one not) used the "needs author attention" flag, adding new comments to the deleted thread where the author is unlikely to see them. (Monica) (fixed)
  • - "Convert to comment" tool isn't implemented, apparently (it just deletes the post) (fixed)
  • - "Disable Comments" > "Purge all comments" deletes the comments in threads instead of the threads themselves. (fixed)
  • - Threads purged via this method do not update their comment count, they show how many comments there were before deletion (fixed)
  • - Using the "author attention" flag to leave a comment generates a "mod will look at your flag" message, which is not true (not really a flag). If we keep this flag we should change that messaging. Alternatively, maybe we should remove the flag path and tell people to just leave comments. (We want something like this for *close votes*, but that's different.) (Monica) (fixed)
  • - Deleted threads are not listed under the post, even for moderators (fixed)
  • Posting here because discord is a terrible place to keep track of things
  • I'll try to update this post with any further information
  • ## In the interests of keeping this post organized, please do not use the comments here for testing
  • ### Current Issues
  • - Unable to view comments on your own post that has been deleted. You can see the post and the threads under the post, but you are unable to preview or open the threads.
  • - Update Ability help pages (currently thread tools require Curate)
  • - 500 error on https://a.dev.codidact.org/mod/comments, the mod "list all comments" page
  • - In ping suggestions, clicking on the ID `<span>` instead of the name inserts `@#undefined`
  • - Ping suggestions don't close when the current text becomes invalid (too short/space etc)
  • - Deleted threads are not listed under the post, even for Curators
  • - Using "Disable Comments" > "Purge all comments" prevents un-deletion of the threads deleted.

  • - Update Ability help pages (currently thread tools require Curate)
  • - 500 error on https://a.dev.codidact.org/mod/comments, the mod "list all comments" page

  • ### Resolved
  • As of 38f3e13f
  • - Change "show N comment threads" to "show all N comment threads" or "show (N-shown) more comment threads". When I clicked on "show 9" I expected to see 9 more things show up. (done)

  • * Users can read threads of deleted posts. (There is a notice where the reply would be saying "Comments are disabled on deleted posts.")

  • - If the 'Post Feedback' thread is deleted, new flags from anybody add comments to the deleted thread. In this deleted ([example](https://a.dev.codidact.org/comments/thread/13)), a thread with two comments was deleted by a mod, and then two users (one mod and one not) used the "needs author attention" flag, adding new comments to the deleted thread where the author is unlikely to see them. (Monica) (fixed)
  • - "Convert to comment" tool isn't implemented, apparently (it just deletes the post) (fixed)
  • - "Disable Comments" > "Purge all comments" deletes the comments in threads instead of the threads themselves. (fixed)
  • - Threads purged via this method do not update their comment count, they show how many comments there were before deletion (fixed)
  • - Using the "author attention" flag to leave a comment generates a "mod will look at your flag" message, which is not true (not really a flag). If we keep this flag we should change that messaging. Alternatively, maybe we should remove the flag path and tell people to just leave comments.

  • Posting here because discord is a terrible place to keep track of things
  • I'll try to update this post with any further information
  • ### Current Issues
  • - Deleted threads are not listed under the post, even for Curators
  • - Show X threads does not take into account deleted threads that you can see
  • - Unable to view comments on your own post that has been deleted. You can see the post and the threads under the post, but you are unable to preview or open the threads.
  • - Using "Disable Comments" > "Purge all comments" prevents un-deletion of the threads deleted.
  • - Convert to comments doesn't work for Curators, even though it's on the tools list for them.
  • - Update Ability help pages (currently thread tools require Curate)
  • - 500 error on https://a.dev.codidact.org/mod/comments, the mod "list all comments" page
  • ### Feature / Change Requests
  • Please discuss these changes in the linked threads
  • - [Ability to cancel a comment](https://a.dev.codidact.org/comments/thread/40)
  • - [Ability to collapse preview of thread](https://a.dev.codidact.org/comments/thread/45)
  • - [Bump threads on new comment](https://a.dev.codidact.org/comments/thread/46) (Sort by last comment rather than number of comments)
  • - [Change "link" to "copy link"](https://a.dev.codidact.org/comments/thread/41)
  • - Change "show N comment threads" to "show all N comment threads" or "show (N-shown) more comment threads". When I clicked on "show 9" I expected to see 9 more things show up.
  • - [Posting a comment adds to the browser history, so when you hit the back button it doesn't return you to the previous page but keeps you on the thread.](https://a.dev.codidact.org/comments/thread/47)
  • - add title text for archived/deleted threads in the summary view under the post
  • ### Resolved
  • As of 5edbdca9
  • - Starting a thread with an initial comment with less than 15 characters creates the comment thread but doesn't create a comment in that thread, leading to a zero-length thread that says it has one comment for some reason. (fixed)
  • - Unable to see own deleted comments. (by-design)
  • - Can see threads even without permission to see post. (fixed)
  • * Users can read threads of deleted posts. (There is a notice where the reply would be saying "Comments are disabled on deleted posts.")
  • * Restrictions on categories/posts do not carry over to threads - all users can see and post in threads regardless on if they can access the post
  • - [follow/unfollow doesn't work for non-moderators](https://a.dev.codidact.org/comments/thread/33). (fixed)
  • - 500 server error when attempting to create a new thread (fixed)
  • - Comment > Edit > Discard Edit removes comment from view (fixed)
  • - Unable to view comments when not signed in. You can see the post and the threads under the post, but you are unable to preview or open the threads. (should be fixed)
  • - If the 'Post Feedback' thread is deleted, new flags from anybody add comments to the deleted thread. In this deleted ([example](https://a.dev.codidact.org/comments/thread/13)), a thread with two comments was deleted by a mod, and then two users (one mod and one not) used the "needs author attention" flag, adding new comments to the deleted thread where the author is unlikely to see them.

  • - Unable to view comments on your own post that has been deleted. You can see the post and the threads under the post, but you are unable to preview or open the threads.
  • - Using "Disable Comments" > "Purge all comments" prevents un-deletion of the threads deleted.
  • - Convert to comments doesn't work for Curators, even though it's on the tools list for them.
  • - Update Ability help pages (currently thread tools require Curate)
  • ### Feature / Change Requests
  • Please discuss these changes in the linked threads
  • - [Ability to cancel a comment](https://a.dev.codidact.org/comments/thread/40)
  • - [Ability to collapse preview of thread](https://a.dev.codidact.org/comments/thread/45)
  • - [Bump threads on new comment](https://a.dev.codidact.org/comments/thread/46) (Sort by last comment rather than number of comments)
  • - [Change "link" to "copy link"](https://a.dev.codidact.org/comments/thread/41)
  • - Change "show N comment threads" to "show all N comment threads" or "show (N-shown) more comment threads". When I clicked on "show 9" I expected to see 9 more things show up.
  • - [Posting a comment adds to the browser history, so when you hit the back button it doesn't return you to the previous page but keeps you on the thread.](https://a.dev.codidact.org/comments/thread/47)
  • ### Resolved
  • As of 5edbdca9
  • - Starting a thread with an initial comment with less than 15 characters creates the comment thread but doesn't create a comment in that thread, leading to a zero-length thread that says it has one comment for some reason. (fixed)
  • - Unable to see own deleted comments. (by-design)
  • - Can see threads even without permission to see post. (fixed)
  • * Users can read threads of deleted posts. (There is a notice where the reply would be saying "Comments are disabled on deleted posts.")
  • * Restrictions on categories/posts do not carry over to threads - all users can see and post in threads regardless on if they can access the post
  • - [follow/unfollow doesn't work for non-moderators](https://a.dev.codidact.org/comments/thread/33). (fixed)
  • - 500 server error when attempting to create a new thread (fixed)
  • - Comment > Edit > Discard Edit removes comment from view (fixed)
  • - Unable to view comments when not signed in. You can see the post and the threads under the post, but you are unable to preview or open the threads. (should be fixed)
  • - If the 'Post Feedback' thread is deleted, new flags from anybody add comments to the deleted thread. In this deleted ([example](https://a.dev.codidact.org/comments/thread/13)), a thread with two comments was deleted by a mod, and then two users (one mod and one not) used the "needs author attention" flag, adding new comments to the deleted thread where the author is unlikely to see them. (Monica) (fixed)
  • - "Convert to comment" tool isn't implemented, apparently (it just deletes the post) (fixed)
  • - "Disable Comments" > "Purge all comments" deletes the comments in threads instead of the threads themselves. (fixed)
  • - Threads purged via this method do not update their comment count, they show how many comments there were before deletion (fixed)
  • - Using the "author attention" flag to leave a comment generates a "mod will look at your flag" message, which is not true (not really a flag). If we keep this flag we should change that messaging. Alternatively, maybe we should remove the flag path and tell people to just leave comments. (We want something like this for *close votes*, but that's different.) (Monica) (fixed)
  • - Deleted threads are not listed under the post, even for moderators (fixed)
