What do you think about this feature?

It should be visible, if you reply on a comment (in comparison to many bulletin-boards).

We could show this information at the right of the comment-edit-form.

UPDATEπ

I would prefer an ajax version - like it is done on youtube.com

binder:could be done with an iframe

11 years ago

yes, I missed this, too...
would be nice to have the whole thread of comments in an iframe. Thus you won't get long pages, and you can scroll through the comments.

I would suggest to add an additional parameter "displayOtherComments" to the commentEdit page handle. Then when building the page, add a scrollable DIV below the form like:
  1. get other comments of parent task
  2. if there are comments...
  3. start new block titled "Other comments"
  4. echo "<div style='height:20em;overflow:auto;'>"
  5. render list_comments with reduced header
  6. echo "</div>"
Something like this.

Should be earlier comments be listed in reverse order? This might look confusing for cascaded comments....

I thought about displaying only the comment you want to reply to.

What do you think?

pixtur:Some comments on the screenshot...

I like the ajax idea, but I have some questions:
  1. Where do we insert the text-edit field?
  2. Do we need the "Comment"-box at the bottom anyway?

tino:Reply to Some comments on the screenshot...

  1. below the comment you reply to
  2. yes - if someone wants to add a "root" comment and don't reply on a comment

I thought we could use the wiki-chapter ajax stuff!

with some changes...

pixtur:more discussion...

We should do some screen mock-ups before starting implementation. Also I think we need a better location of all those js code...
