Would it be possible to have "how many new" show up after you click a category to browse through? August 1, 2007 1:17 PM   Subscribe

I love the (x new) comments feature, but I notice that it doesn't work if you're browsing questions by category (say, "human relations"). Would it be possible to add that feature so one could still see how many new comments had been added to questions when vewed by category?

afaik, it doesn't work ever, anywhere. nor has it ever. no wait, i think if you log out after reading each post, it might work.

I think he just means that it says there are x new comments, but unlike the main page, you can't click that to get to the first "new" one.

If we're adding features to the category page, I'd also like the little +, so I can add every human relations question in one swoop.

Well, it does seem to update, when you're just browsing the master list of questions, but once you click a category, that disappears - doesn't even say there are x new comments.

(I'm using Firefox but MF's been like this via any browser I've used.)

quonsar: It works fine if you ever leave the site for more than a certain amount of time (30 mins maybe? 15? I'm not sure)... but if you're constantly browsing the site all day, well.. then yeah, it won't be so effective.

As long as we're talking about minor feature additions in the interest of consistency..

I've found that, when browsing old AskMeFi questions, there's no way to tell which ones have answers. That would be a helpful thing to have.
