<p>Do you find the portal annoying to use, when a blog post has dozens of comments and replies? Here are some proposed improvements that would help solve several challenges.</p>

<p>Thanks, Jim (and to others “liking” it so far).</p><p>That said, I see now a slight mistake in my logic, in my first iteration of this post. I could/should have noted that my proposal to have a search feature “for all comments and replies to a given post” would indeed be obviated if the previously requested feature, a new option to show all comments with replies expanded, were to be implemented. Then one could just use their browser “find” to search through those for a given post.</p><p>That said, I realize now that technically one can’t use the current portal search feature (at the top right of all pages) to search through comments and replies among all posts. For instance, if you search for “archived”, not one of the the 15 results shown is the recent blog post about the problem with the Feb 2019 CF updates–where many comments and replies talk about the solution to the scheduled task problem being to add a needed “archived” xml element to each scheduled task, because of a mistake in the updates. (And yes, this was even if one changed the search result page to sort by “newest first”.)</p><p>So an ability to optionally search all comments AND replies (added to that portal search feature) would be a big help.</p><p>As for my changing the post, regarding my first point here in my comment, sadly I can’t “just edit it”. The portal has another tragic behavior: if you edit a post, it will be REMOVED from view by others until the edit is moderated.  And that could be hours (or even days sometimes).</p><p>So I tend to wait a few days before editing a new post (as much as I may so wish I could), so that time can pass (as people discover it among the most recent posts) before I risk it going offline for hours. Grr.</p><p>(And don’t be confused that YOU, the author, can still see the post once you post the change for "review". YOU can see it, in that browser. But save the URL before posting a change to a post for “review”, and then go visit that URL in another browser. not logged in as you, and you will find that the post is simply GONE!) </p><p>I have complained many times about this to the portal folks, that it ought to at least KEEP THE OLD one visible, until they moderate the proposed change. Sorry, but that one is RIDICULOUS!</p>
