v8: api, quick comments

by stink - on Mar 5, 2021 3:15pm to meta comments(4)
I just launched version 8, here is what's included:

- The start of the API. There's an API link in the site footer and in the manual. There are currently only a couple of endpoints. There's one to get all the posts and one to get a single post.

- Quick comments. Comment "reply" links will instantly open a comment form so that you don't have to go to another page. This is available as a setting for logged in users. And it has been set as the default.

- Switched to using a more traditional multi-line layout for posts and comments. Previously posts and comments were single line.

- On narrow screens the comment indentation width has been reduced so that more nested comments fit on mobile.

- When you submit a comment using the standard form at the top of a page, you will jump down to the comment and it'll be highlighted.

- Tons of additional color and margin changes.
Some comments may be hidden. Show all.

    Seems like a big one, nice job. Been waiting for that quick comment thing.

    Btw, there's a where/were grammar error. ;)

      Thanks, I used quick comments to make this comment. So I guess it's working.

      I fixed the grammar error(now that I can edit posts anytime).
