An important notice to commenters

Today between 4:00 and 5:00 pm EST (New York) we will test a registration-based comment feature. Comments will be limited to those who register via WordPress, Facebook, etc. It is just for an hour. It would be great if you could come back and comment, so we would be able to see how it works. After the test we will turn back everything and Eva will decide what’s next …

First Test with being logged in

Returned to edit and it works!

Guest

So let’s see what happens now!

How were you able to test without logging in? It says you are a Guest. I did not think it is possible….

Love the daily blog – thanks for keeping us in the loop.

Click on “You must be logged in to post comment”, and log in by pressing “Login with WordPress”. I will configure the Facebook, Google, Twitter, and Diqus login also, as they do not work just yet.

Joining in on the comment test (I think).
Love the blog – thanks!

It works for me — and I can even edit. it. Now the usual test for italics, boldface, hyperlinking
Image:comment image
and blockquoting (blank if it fails):

“This is blockquoted text”

Member

You just have to go back and edit. You cannot remove it, but you can edit the comment.

Member

I will test whether it’s true you can’t remove a commentary even though you can edit. I will post this, then edit and delete….

Member

Just above this, I entered some text, posted it, then edited it and tried to delete it all. The software didn’t let me. So I deleted all but x. As you see, it posted, but it wouldn’t let me edit again.

Added later: Ah, I see the x did not appear. So I was able to delete the text completely after all…

In the post below I will try to enter text, post it, edit it, delete it, and leave only “text deleted”…

Member

“text deleted”

Member

Worked, and allows me to keep editing the “text deleted” after posting. Deleting everything won’t allow me to save. But deleted a post and leaving x makes the post disappear if you refresh the whole page.

Member

Bravo! Everything works! (Only bug is that hypelinked test is neither underscored nor colored, so you don’t know unless you happen to click (see “hyperlinking” above)…

Test for video:

Test for embedded video:

Both video tests failed. Also, the shrinking column size with replies to replies will begin to look awkward after a certain depth…

Member

The first video is there. No need to embed. That is the one that failed.

Regarding “shrinking column size with replies to replies”.
This only can be eliminated if we limit the number of of links in the chain of comments. So instead of the depth of ten, we would go less. It would also require some testing.

Member

Thanks everyone. I will go back to the previous setting now, so you not need to be logged in to comment.

Member

Hopefully back to “normal” settings now.

You were only able to edit for that 1 hour we were up in TEST mode. The only way to edit in this platform when we go and turn back to the mode where only signed in people can comment.

It was not easy to register and it is more difficult to log in for members of World Press with different user name and password, when not very active uploading articles.

Member

you made it!

Guest

Okay, I am registered as well.
