Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 130 Stack Exchange communities.

The page auto update is nice, but could it be reworked?

  • If new answers have been posted and I click on the grey refresh box ("New answers have been posted..."), the answers counter does not change;
  • sometimes, if it is the first answer, the ordering tabs do not appear;
  • new answers are put on top, but this does not combine well with the default question ordering (oldest). I would change it to "active" in this case.

If new answers have been posted and I click on the grey refresh box ("New answers have been posted..."), the answers counter does not change;

This appears to be a regression - I have pushed a bit more robust fix so it should be fixed after the next build.

sometimes, if it is the first answer, the ordering tabs do not appear;

Tabs will be visible even when a question has no answers after clicking on the "new answers" bar.

new answers are put on top, but this does not combine well with the default question ordering (oldest). I would change it to "active" in this case.

I will look at solutions for this - the current implementation will just load the answer right under the new answer bar.

As always, wait for the next build.

Nice, Geoff, this seems to work now perfectly. –  AGuyCalledGerald Jan 3 '13 at 14:49
