New Streetsblog Feature: Comments Archive

As I’m sure you’ve noticed, we’ve been making a few changes around here. Today we are introducing the Comments Archive. You can find a permanent link to the Comments Archive over in the sidebar at the bottom of both Hot Topics and Recent Comments.

We think that those who enjoy reading and participating in conversations on Streetsblog will find the Comments Archive to be another useful way to track ongoing discussions across the site. For now, the functionality is pretty simple — it is basically just a running list of reader comments in chronological order. We’ll probably be fancying things up a bit in the near future, adding searching and sorting.

As always, chime in if you have any suggestions about this or anything else…

    Very useful! How about an RSS feed for the comments?

  • Your wish is my command. Feeling generous today…

    There are now links to the comments RSS feed in the sidebar and at the top of the Comments Archive page.

  • RSS for comments!? You are all gluttons for punishment.

    How else can we always get the last word? Awesome, Nick! Thanks.

The Opposite of Ad Nauseam: Farrah on a Bike

|
It’s been a tumultuous week in more ways than one. We’re going to leave it behind with a flashback, via Cycelicious, to the late 1970s, when Farrah Fawcett pedaled to promote her own line of shampoo. What helmet could contain that hair? We couldn’t find video of Ed McMahon or Michael Jackson on a bike […]
