Now that deleted comments are displayed beneath a post instead of in a separate page when I click to view them, doing so causes the "add comment" link for the post in question to disappear until I refresh the page.

Strangely, as a moderator I cannot reproduce this issue with the steps described in a similar report; my ability to view deleted comments inline triggers it instead.

  • @AsheeshR: When you click the "View deleted comments" the "Add comment" link disappears. I managed to reproduce as a mod. – Madara's Ghost Jul 27 '13 at 17:21
  • Reproed on Physics. No comments were harmed in the enactment of this experiment; the moderator instead autopsied comments which had already been baleetinated. – Manishearth Jul 27 '13 at 17:22

    The 'Add comment' link disappears for the slightest reason. Vote to close? Link disappears. Deleted a comment? Link gone. etc. It is bloody irritating. – Martijn Pieters Jul 27 '13 at 17:36

    @BoltClock'saUnicorn yes it's disappearing for me also, it seems to like being refreshed (maybe it feels dirty somehow??) – user310756 Jul 27 '13 at 17:43
  • Also repro'd on dba.SE - but not in all cases. I visited a question that already had deleted comments, and clicking on that link did not make the add comment link disappear. However, on another question, which didn't already have any deleted comments, I intentionally added a comment, then deleted it, left the page, and came back. This time, when I clicked the 1 deleted comment link, the add comment link disappeared. Perhaps this has something to do with the new undelete form of comment? – Aaron Bertrand Jul 27 '13 at 20:42
  • Hmm, I cannot reproduce this behavior. Does it occur on this specific post for you, when viewing the three deleted comments? – Jarrod Dixon Jul 28 '13 at 21:29
  • @Jarrod Dixon: I missed your comment somehow. I can no longer reproduce this behavior today - not sure if it's because the other issue was just fixed, but given that you couldn't reproduce it a day after I reported it it might not have been the case. Either way, it works now... – BoltClock's a Unicorn Aug 9 '13 at 17:54

Looks like fixing other related issues has resolved this one as well. Cheers!
