Description

11 years ago
Right now, I can put the "additional comments" box either before other comments, or after them.  What I'd really like is a "both" option -- that way I could use the top one when doing something like blocking flags, etc, and the bottom one when responding to comments.
Well, how would you know which one to submit? Also, the IDs would have to be different or there would be issues, which already would cause problems. Really, the entire knob setup would have to be removed before this could be done. :(

Believe me, I've thought about this before. hehe

Good question.  One simple solution in a JS-enabled browser is to pick one of them, submit it, and use JS to make sure the two are always in sync.

In a non-JS-enabled browser, don't allow this option?  ;)
Rearranging this component to not have me as the default assignee, so that it
doesn't appear like I'm intending to work on bugs that other people could be
taking care of if they didn't think I was already doing them.  If this bug is a
software issue on b.m.o and you'd like to fix it, the modified source is now
available for the patching (see bug 373688).  Reassigning to the new default
owner.

bz: would you accept the solution of having the comment box in one place, but having a "summon comment box" link in the other place which moved it in the DOM to where you wanted it? One extra click...

I'd be ok with that, yeah.
bz: it turns out Bugzilla 4.0 has an "Add Comment" link at the bottom of the comments list, which jumps you back up to the box at the top. So once we upgrade to 4.0 you can get the function you want by setting the comment box to be at the top, and using the link when you are at the bottom.

Does that work well enough?

No, because that means I have to type my comment while I can't see the comment I'm responding to.
OK, I've implemented the solution in comment 4 in the bmo-4.0 codebase.

This is great, but it would be better if there was a link to summon it back to the original position.

Reloading the page does that. Or, you could stop being indecisive ;-)
