when i first started working on the threaded comments hack for b2, i accidently dropped an important field in my comments database table. fortunately i caught a tech support from e-starr.net online. they restored my database but i lost yesterday’s entry about my button exchange and its comments *darn!*
i realize if i want the threaded comments to really look like the one on livejournal, i will probably have to go into recursion. hehe.. i’m too lazy to do that so now the replied comments have a link to the comments it’s responding it. what you think? is that confusing or helpful? I DID THE RECURSION YAY! i haven’t written the readme and database update script yet. i want to hear some feedback first.
DO YOU WANT TO BE A BETA TESTER? download here – if there’s anything wrong, i won’t be able to fix it until tomorrow. i’m going home from work now 🙂
oh yeah, i also want to thank those who commented in my past couple “dull entries” LOL Connie Daynah eftalia Grace Kim leah Lele Lizzy mar Rita

this is a reply.. kinda dull huh?
two level threaded. i want to see if i can make the recursion work.
This a reply to your comment. hehe Can you replace the comment number with the commenters name Dodo? Or maybe space the reply in a bit? I like it though, you rock Dodo!
omg.. you got it to work! 🙂
yay, i think so ^_^
this loosk very nifty dodo great work! =)
You’re so good! I love all your hacks, Dodo.
test testing? replying grace’s entry xDD
replying my own entry 😀 very COOOL DODO!!
weeee heh.. I knew you could do it. 🙂
haha this is fun xD
Things get really cramped when the replies get really deep in a thread 🙂
pushing the envelop with deep replies in a thread
now i use div instead of ul. let’s see how it works
reply, it should stop stretching sometime
once it reaches 200px. please stop 😦
fine, it won’t stop.. but it’s better than before.
Agreed…threads in comments rareiy, if ever, get this deep…
one more coimng up!
I’m using it, and apparently I’ve managed to not spoil anything ;).
Thanks and greetings from Spain!
reply to 3938?
Just wanted to try a few things out 🙂 Dodo’s script is awesome!
one more time
oh, so we can post dull comments here too? 🙂
comment on test. 🙂
test again 🙂
Wow, what an awesome hack 🙂
that’s pretty cool! 🙂
tests it out here 🙂
(start of my dull reply)
This looks cool.
(end of my dull reply)
stretch test 1 – hehe, you’ve even got anti-spam protetion! pretty cool, mate.
stretch test 3 – What inspired this, btw, dodo? ^^ Did you have a set of comments that required it?
at times i wish i can reply to certain comments. i just added a link to allow no thread view.
hi dodo! cool layout! i really like your attitude. keep it up!
wow, stop stretching my poor comments area.. i think three levels of threading is probably good enough for daily usage. of course my script will handle infinite threading. it will just destroy your layout if you keep stretching and stretching 😦
You go it to work, too cool!!!!!!!!
Yikes! Surely it can’t be that bad! I wonder how LJ handles it. 😦
the reason lj works is because they use the WHOLE PAGE for their comments section. you know what i mean?
miki, i’m replying to your comment coz i just added the email notification function. please let me know if you have gotten the email 🙂
ooO! Dodo! ^_^! This is great! ^_^! I love it!!!! hahaha wow!!!
— installing later xD —
I LOVE THIS HACK. ME GOES TO TEST! I was JUST thinking about it the other day.. it’s such a pain for me to sum up everyone’s post in response
sobby! it’s not working for me 😦 I’m getting database errors.. (and some lines from the readme didn’t quite match up with mine.. perhaps I am not using the most recent release)
oy I restored my database, and re-tried the script.. still getting “There is an error with the database, it can’t store your comment…” 😦 What do you think is wrong?
okay daynah debugged it for me! hehe i just had to remove the $used_theme’, part from b2comments.post since I don’t log that obviously 😛 Your hack rocks! And Daynah’s sexy 😉 You two are my goddesses!
thats really neato 😀 good job, dodo..as usual 😉
cool hack! I !
Thanks Dodo! I love it. I used it for nimrodel.net and fated.the-protagonist.net
Call me stupid.. call me REALLY stupid.. I was commenting on Lele’s site how much me loves this hack.. erm yeah. *kicks self* anyway, thank youuuuuu!! It rocks!! (i even got the little ‘new’ thingie to work with it after two hours, lol)
Test again… 😛
so why are you stupid?
test for my comment email notification addition
reply to myself
wah! this is really cool! XD
This is cool! But it won’t work on mine for some reason 😦
