Notes on the Blog: You aren’t crazy

by cv harquail on January 8, 2015

5274236645_4c90517836_mYou *have* been seeing new posts pop up and then disappear.  I’ve been trying to untangle some of the hijacked threads —  by creating new posts for some topics, and then assigning comments to these new posts (using a new tool I just found, hooray me).  But, since posts have to be ‘published’ in order to receive comments, I’m ‘publishing’ them early, adding the comments, and then un-publishing them until next week.

If you’ve wondered why some of your comments have disappeared, it may be because they were part of a comment subthread that took a sharp turn. Look for them on an upcoming post.     ~ cvh

Thanks ! I was debating whether to email you because I was wondering if what I said was misinterpreted as offensive somehow, but couldn’t figure why !

Hey CV, just wondering about the order of comments? Have noticed that some are messed around?

E.g. I just commented on a post and it went under a comment from the 10th, but slotted in before some comments from the 2nd and 5th..

Hi aussie ap–
That’s something I haven’t figured out w this tool. Moving a comment with its own replies moves the whole minichain. And I don’t know why it puts ‘new’ comments ahead. Its actually so much trouble already to move comments that ill likely be happywith this imperfect solution for now , but I will see if there is an easy way to reset how the reassigned and new comments work. Thanks for alerting me to the problem ;-)

If you’re using the WP tool I think you’re using, there is a place to set order of posts when moved. I believe the default is newest first.
