Minor quibble with drop-down menu August 30, 2002 10:49 AM   Subscribe

Here's a minor quibble: when you sort the front page by "recent comments" the drop-down menu goes to "recent comments" accordingly and you can then select "date" and the page will reset.

However, if you choose "most comments" or "my comments" the menu goes automatically to "date" so you can't reset the page to date-ordered posts in one click. You have to, for instance, select "recent comments" and then select "date".

This is probably very taxing on the server. Is there any cleverer way round it?

The "Home" link at the top of the page flips it back to sorting by date with one click (at least it does for me.) You're right, though, the pulldown should have the current view selected, to make this more intuitive.

Click on Home, you say. Oh it works. Well of all the labyrinthian, counter-intuitive, long-way-round solutions...who would have ever thought of that? ;) Thanks, ook!

I usually just deleted the =mycomments in the url.

Clicking Home makes much more sense.
