Recent Comments section

Lazy Swamis
Is anyone else seeing the name of each effect in the "Recent Comments" section of the main page as numbers?
It used to show the name of the effect, but now on my phone and computer it just shows a number, which I suppose is related to the address in the blog.

Yeah, same here. I've been seeing that for a long time now, I thought perhaps it was some sort of site issue, like the old search bar not working.

I agree. I've noticed it shortly after the search bar issue. I'm not sure if it's still being looked into.

same here, i type the name of the effect as an introduction of the post, in order to make it a bit easier.

Yes, it's just been showing long meaningless numbers for ages now - ever since the Search bar went kaputt.

IMO it's a right pain. When it showed the name of the circuit, you could esily see if it was one you were working on or were interested in building, and had been commented on or updated. Now the comments are effectively meaningless as you do not know what they relate to unless you click on them to find out.

I for one find that very frustrating.

I've learned as much from the comments section as anywhere else on the site. I will read the comments of certain folks no matter what effect it is related to but mostly I only have time for the projects that I am currently working on.
I do appreciate the effort of the more knowledgeable people to educate the rest of us.

Also, what's happened to the avatars and favorites buttons on the forum index pages?

Recent comments gone on the fritz again? Total Pageviews too it seems.  Makes following multiple posts a bit of a pain when not actually subscribing to them.  Maybe it's time to look at a few other recent comments widgets?

I'm on a mac running 10.11.6 and Safari if that matters.  It also doesn't load on my iPhone either though.

Total views and search bar are working fine for me (Firefox on Windows) but the recent comments isn't showing anything.  I'll have a look at the blogspot widgets section and see if something has changed

Actually, now clicking on the comment doesn't take you there on the particular thread.  Bit of a nightmare on long comment strings
