[2020-03-23 01:32:11 UTC Update 1:Ed. Note - updated to clarify location of the skip to comments button.--fnord666]

[2020-03-23 12:56:40 UTC Update 2: Changed link target from "#acomments" to "#commentwrap" per suggestion in:; added "Note-to-self". --martyb]

Thank You! Thanks to everyone who provided feedback on a new UI feature to the site; [Skip to comment(s)]" is now live on SoylentNews!

The SoylentNews' Main Page should function and look the same as before. The magic manifests only after a specific story has been opened. Code has been added to a site template so that "[Skip to comment(s)]" should now appear, right-justified, in the first of the two lines in the title bar that appears immediately below the story's title.

[Note to self: see in-memory version of template: "dispStory;misc;default" original implementation target fragid of "#acomments" changed to "#commentwrap" as of 2020-03-23 12:56:40 UTC--martyb]

Clicking the button will bring you to the comment header block. (That's where you can adjust Breakthrough, Threshold, and Threading preferences (either one-time-only, or save it away, permanently.)

Quite frankly, thanks to the community's feedback, it looks and behaves better than what I had originally envisioned!

    Thank you, SN, and thank you, marty.

    And stay the fuck home, assholes. Don't be patient 31 like them spring break cocksuckers in Florida. Lock them fuckers up in jail and no medical treatment. I don't want a cent of my tax money going to their medical treatment.

    Comment below if you want canned soups cheap.

    You don't have to stay home, you just have to stay away from other people. And it started here just when the crappie and flathead started biting again. So a big ole "HA-ha" and a hearty "Suck it!" to those of you who think the universe doesn't love me.

    My rights don't end where your fear begins.

    Canned soup has very low calories per dollar since it's mostly water. Dried beans + canned diced tomatoes + bouillon + water + spices makes a decent soup.
