Having to page through comments on a thread is kinda annoying. Things that could make it better

  • use ajax to fetch next results
  • use a "more" link that appends the next comments onto the current page
  • tighten up the display of each post - if the comment is short, a lot of height is taken just for the gravatar and reply/link/edit/delete links
  • ?

    Other possible options:

    • an immediate "view all" button
    • a persistent setting for the number of comments per page on tickets

      5754 didn't get migrated from SourceForge tracker accidentally. Here's the content:

      Next and Prev page navigation needs changes in the Allura Tickets tool

      See the attached image. The Next and the Last buttons/arrow images are too close to each other. It is confusing. The best way is to separate them out visually.
