    Article comments not showing up

    Hi, Harlander here. You might remember me from such complaints as "I can't view the article comments on IE at work." I'm back with a spicy new sequel:

    I can't view the article comments with Firefox at home. I allowed all scripts in noscript, but to no avail.

    Anyone else seeing this? I know at least one person is having trouble with Chrome.

    The magic of Chrome means the same thing happens. Maybe ye olden hooke between the comments and forum weren't quite entirely removed and the deletion of the newold forum broke things?

    Same issue on Chrome, WinXP, Firefox 3.x WinXP, Opera on WinXP
    and also Dolphin on Android, as well as Firefox on Android.

    The comments ARE in the source. So it is a browser issue.

    Dito for Opera here. Disabling CSS reveals them of course, but de-pretties the site a bit.

    Yes, this appears to be an issue for me too. It's only been an issue since these new forums were put up, not since the comment-improvements that were made a few days back.

    There was a brief time period where both were working (long enough for me to post something here then go back and post a comment on the gog article). Don't know if that would help narrow it down

    Same with Safari on Snow Leopard. And in the browser!

    You can still read the comments via the RSS comment feed, though: <a href="feed://www.rockpapershotgun.com/comments/feed/">feed://www.rockpapershotgun.com/comments/feed/</a>

    ol.commentlist {
    display: none;
    }

    In style.css causes this

    A quickfix using Stylish(extenstion for Firefox and Chrome, though any extension that allows you to overwrite CSS of a website will do)

    Add a style for rockpapershotgun.com domain with this simple code

    ol.commentlist {
    display: inline;
    }

    It will overwrite the silly code that hides comments.

    @mlaskus, JamesG

    It's meant to hide all but the current page of comments, but the current page isn't being set correctly. A fix is in the works.

    Yep, that's it. I changed it to "block" instead with stylish and the comments are visible.

    Edit: Ok, quoting didn't work.
