Hi, I'm not sure if this is just teething problems with the new comments system or a bug, but I'm hoping you might be able to help and/or advise. Please let me know if you require any further information, or if I need to submit a request.
- When comments appear in my notifications under the lightning menu, I cannot see who posted the comment. This is very frustrating.
- I cannot consistently see comments when going to the relevant post to view them, whether the comment is on one of my posts or someone else's. Sometimes I can view comments if I click on an individual post's permalink and change from mobile view (I'm on android) to desktop view, but again, this is not consistent.
- It is not clear when a comment has successfully submitted, which has led to posting the same comment multiple times on the same post without realising (I do accept that this is at least partially due to my unfamiliarity with the comments system as it is new, but would it be possible to build in a confirmation that a comment has gone through similar to the notification that pops up when a post has been successfully reblogged?)
- It is not possible to edit or delete comments. This is very frustrating. Can this functionality be added to the comments system if this is not already planned? I think it's very important to be able to do this - if I post something in error or spot a typo after commenting, I want to be able to fix it.
These issues are making it quite difficult to use the site effectively. I personally feel that the previous system of reblogging with comments/additions to posts worked better than the comments system in its current form, although I do understand the logic behind the development of the new comments system in terms of trying to facilitate ease of following individual conversation threads. I think this is a good idea in principle, but I think the issues need to be ironed out before it is fully usable. With that said, I do appreciate that this is a new system that you have clearly put a lot of work into, and it may take some time to iron out any problems. I really appreciate everything that you have done and continue to do in order to develop and maintain this site for us.
Many thanks for your help.
