expensive that all three actions required a full refresh of the page

I once thought the same and wouldn't it be nice if you could click your votes, moderation and type your cb-message and hit any of the buttons to make all three actions happen? That could be made possible.

Judging it as a programmer - I don't need that bad enough to volunteer to code it. Actually, I only very scarcely need more than one of the options at any time.

    I agree with this point. If you've ever been in the "Preview" or "Comment on" page, and you use the chatterbox, you arrive at a very weird page that tells you "No such parent node".

      Actually this is one of those PITA issues of Everything that I think is probably quite hard to work around. The problem is that forms on PM are idendependent. So when you submit from the CB nodelet its a totally different form from the one that may be displayed in the "node view". I guess hypothetically we could make all pages be just one big form, but then you have all kinds of issues like walking on each others parameters and things like that.

      Simpler work arounds might be simply not showing the nodelets when viewing preview/comment on, or possibly putting special logic into the CB (and other form bearing nodelets) so that it wouldnt include a form on those pages.

      Anyway, i guess the main reason this hasn't been fixed is that it is in the annoyance category and not the showstopper category, and the work arounds arent too much better than the original problem.


        Setting base target="_blank" for previews would be a solution, as I've discussed before...
