Talkback Now Threaded

Thursday July 8th, 1999

Our forums are now threaded. You can still view in "flat mode" if you like. Just choose it from the drop-down menu above the forum and click submit, and all forums you view will be in "flat mode" until you switch back (by choosing "threaded" from the drop-down menu).

This will definitely help us should we encounter another 300+ post topic. Thank you for all your hard work and dedication to improving the infrastructure of the mozilla community.

#7 Indent is funky in mozilla.

The indent could be one space bigger i think (viewing with Navigator). Indent doesn't seem to work at all in apprunner (going to the bug pages to investigate). Man I love that mozilla saves my login and password.

#9 Flat mode still Rules!

Cunning idea, and it's good that you can view it in flat mode. IMHO, though, flat mode is still the best, that way you can read people's followups without deciding on the merits of their arguments because of the title they've chosen.

PS did anyone understand that post about this feature giving you more control than IE??

I think it was a reply to my statement about apprunner saving login and password. See, this is one prime example of the merrits of thereading discussions.

Yes, flat mode rules. ;-)

If I understood the previous poster correctly, I think s/he was saying that using IE makes it easy for other people to access your passwords.

I notice that Moz password-protects your password list, btw...

The new threads are great! It makes it much easier to follow a discussion and the various side-discussions.

How about a "layered" flat mode?

I mean, threads are *much* easier to follow, whilst flats are *much* easier to read...

How about:

MESSAGE HEADER message text message text message text message text message text message text.

REPLY HEADER message text message text message text message text message text.

REPLY HEADER message text message text message text message text message text.

NEW THREAD HEADER message text message text message text message text message text message text.

"or something"

Hmm... the formatting didn't come out. I mean, when I put a space in my HTML, I want a frickin' space!Frickin' HTML.

Obviously a designer ("white-space! gimme white-space!") didn't design HTML.

HTML was designed for semantic mark-up, not stylistic. Despite the evil proliferation of tags such as <FONT>, <B> and (shudder) <BLINK>, it still sticks to some of the early goals of HTML...

#18 Why not use SLASH (the slashdot engine)

by ToriDan

Saturday July 10th, 1999 7:03 PM

Reply to this message

Just a question/comment. Why doesn't MozillaZine switch to using Slash (the engine the powers Slashdot.org)? Instead of trying to reinvent the wheel.

It's Proven... It's Powerful... It's OpenSource...

Provided MozillaZine is on a apache/mod_perl machine. It's Perfect...

Just my 2c.

I find its cleaner and not quite as jumpy as /.

#21 bad HTML style

I find it ironic that Mozilla(zine) trumpets the standard support, particularly CSS1, yet the threaded mode still uses "indent.gif" "transparent.gif" hacks rather than using stylesheet standards.

#22 eh?

Ok, and exactly what browsers would that work in? IE5 doesn't even have full support for CSS, and it's the latest "commercial" browser release. Why should I even bother, when we don't even have *one* CSS1 compliant browser on the market?

I'm not even thinking about CSS until one browser fully and properly supports it.
