I noticed recently that the "view more comments" link failed to work rather often for me, usually on pages that I had opened earlier and that were open for some time. I suspect that it happens only if more comments are added after the page was loaded, but I can't be entirely sure about it. It also does not seem to happen for every case where comments are added via the live update, only if the page has been loaded for a while.

The comment link just doesn't do anything at all in these cases, I inspected the page and it looks to me as if the event listener that should be triggered is just missing entirely on the "add comment" div.

There is also one similar bug report on meta.physics.

  • Is this on a specific browser/platform?

  • This happens to me a lot with a few elements on the pages: viewing or adding comments, posting an answer... anything like that. It can happen by the time I'm done reading the question or it won't happen unless the page sits for a minute. (I am on Chrome/Windows 7.) I have just gotten into the habit of refreshing the page before I try and do anything. I get that little red box that says "an error occurred". Commented Oct 25, 2013 at 17:43
  • I cann't get this repro-ed. Are you on a corporate network? Any proxies? Is this a webkit only issue?

This issue was previously reported here: The "add / show 1 more comments" link doesn't do anything if you don't have comment permissions. Should be fixed in the next build.

  • Why isn't it being migrated here? Was it specific just to physics.stackexchange.com? Commented Oct 28, 2013 at 18:47
  • No, it's not physics-specific, but I just didn't stop to migrate. Normally I would, but this question was already here so just linking was good enough for me. Commented Oct 28, 2013 at 18:53
  • Fair enough. What about this one then? :) Commented Oct 28, 2013 at 20:07

    @ShaWizDowArd thanks for that. I marked it as status-deferred to be semantic and to supposedly help me remember, but it actually had the immediate effect this morning of helping me forget ;-). I think that bug is now obsolete. Commented Oct 28, 2013 at 21:00
