After commenting, return to previous comment-thread settings in entry
After I leave a comment, I am returned to an entry page set to the default Threaded view for comments. I'd like it if the commenting process could magically remember if I was viewing the entry with all comments Expanded or in Flat view before I commented, and return me to the entry page set to whatever setting I'd picked.
So, Fandom_Secrets came to DW (Yay!), and I noticed a minor irritation I've had on DW before:
When I 'Expand All' (or 'Flat') comments on a post with lots of comments, then reply to one of those comments, after I hit 'Post', my comment appears on an entry page that's been set back to the default Threaded comments setting, with some comments hidden again.
Which means I have to go back and hit 'Expand All' (or 'Flat') again before I can continue reading and commenting. This disrupts my chain of thought, and in a big post where I'd like to comment to a lot of conversations and sub-discussions, it can get annoying after a while.
If the comment page could magically notice & remember to return me to the entry page/comment thread set-up I'd picked, that would save me several seconds that I could use to invent cheap, workable cold fusion and/or waste on watching Youtube kitten videos. More seriously, it could help some people with accessibility issues navigate pages more easily.
How could this be done? Well, elves would have to use some elven magic, obviously. Very magical creatures, elves. ::nods seriously::
Potential problems with page load, server load, etc? Ask the elves. I'm not really an expert on magic, elven or otherwise. I'd be willing to offer chocolate biscuits and milk, if that helps, but I think that might be for brownies...
