We changed our blog’s theme yesterday to make the site run properly on a phone or a tablet. It now loads faster, too. We are trying to get it functioning like the old blog, but I have run into a couple snags.
The worst one is that when you are scrolling through all the blog posts, it doesn’t show you the “comment link” – or a link that says “there are 13 comments” with a quick link to the comments.
To see the comments (and to comment) you must click the headline of the story. The comments are at the bottom of that page. We are trying to get the comment link restored to make your life (and Suzanne Ellison’s) easier.
Sorry for the trouble, everybody.

Like the redesign tho!
It does indeed look nice on my iPhone!
I tried to see how it looks on my phone, but the cord doesn’t reach. I’ll check it later.
The new format looks good but the trials that you are experiencing with getting it to show the comments link sounds much like my trying to reconfigure my woodworking shop so that it works well
I noticed early this morning that the search function for the blog was missing. Is there a way you can search the blog now?
The Search function is still in the right-hand sidebar. Can you not see it? It’s right below the link to my personal site.
Same here on an android tablet, but only in Portrait orientation. If the tablet is rotated to Landscape, the right sidebar appears. I’ve seen this on other blogs. The blog looks great, btw.
Same here. No sidebar on android tablet. Besides this I like it.
No sidebar on an Android tablet here, either.
No right hand side bar in either portrait or landscape using an iPad. I’ve tried 3 browsers with the same results.
It’s on my iPad Pro in landscape mode. Understandably it’s gone in portrait mode. it doesn’t show up in either mode on my iPhone.
I like it, though.
Cannot see it on an iPhone
On mobile devices, the search function will be in the footer. Scroll down to the bottom and all the sidebar stuff should be there….
Looks great! Don’t apologize for anything. LAP is a bit of beautiful sanity in these difficult times.
On chrome on windows 10 the white space overwhelms the content.
Love the new look. Im also missing the ability to search old posts by month/ year and the ability to go to the next and previous post ( a key feature since i have been reading through all the old FANTASTIC blog posts)
I second that.
Me too! I’ve only recently come across the blog and have been slowly making my way through. I got up to 2011 but without the month/year function I can’t seem to get back the there.
I added a calendar and an archive by month to the sidebar. That should get you back to October 2007…..
I’m not sure what everyone is seeing, but I am not seeing any difference whatsoever.
On iPhone / iOS the Search box is at very bottom of web page. No sidebars.
Same here on iOS… search box and then Instagram and Twitter links are below, no sidebar (portrait or landscape). Layout and text are very nice and crisp.
Ah yes. That’s a looong way to scroll down.
Not that there is anything wrong with that.
What!? Product improvement? Pure Anarchy!
New formats nice.
Such are the trials of 1’s and 0’s. Your constant search for ways to improve how we all interact is appreciated.
Let’s be honest I’d take the time to read the blog if it was 8 bit green screen. Looks good on an iPad iOS 10, as you know no comments button.
Looks like its a wordpress site. I’d be happy to take a look and fix up the comments issue. Consider it a thank you for the Anarchists workbench (Been doing web development for about 20 years at this point). Reach out via email if you want to take me up on that.
