i used to check up and see what the new comments were every so often. if i saw something interesting i could click ‘more’ and read the rest of the post in the side-frame-thing without having to navigate to another page… i like the fact that it says what post they are commenting on now, however i normally just hovered over the link and checked the status bar at the bottom for that. please bring back the more button… it is a pain to have to load the post, then either navigate through 10s of pages, or press ‘see all comments’ and load a huge wall of text, just to see the rest of the most recent comment, which is not always at the end, sometimes buried in the middle… :(

The other day, I noticed it wasn’t generating properly paginated links to the comments. So, if you had clicked on the comment Author name, it would incorrectly only take you to the post, and not to the actual comment — which, as you described, would then necessitate navigating through pages or doing a “view all comments” in order to find it. I’ve refactored it to generate the correct links, added in the post title (linked to the post), the comment excerpt (linked directly to the full comment), the toggle excerpt/full content, minor styling tweaks, “Older”/”Newer” pagination links at the bottom so you can flip between pages of recent comments within the sidebar, and bumped the display count up to 10 per page.
