Making the Shout Box Great Again!?
Thine petitions have been heard

.

... as Mojo once put it.  It looks like the Shout Box is back to where it used to be:  one Box on the front page which follows you through articles. Just hit the keyboard picture and an entry box shows up.

For Dr. D's part he'll be paying special attention to comments there, as far as replying and interacting.  In fact at Klat we prefer Shouts to comments in the CMS threads ... so everything we said about throwing potatoes into the hobo pot, please apply it to the Shout Box first.

I think that's what most of you mooks preferred anyway, wasn't it?  :- )

......

Shout Box is goin' up again!  :: crowd goes wild ::  Well, at the least, we're workin' it as the users requested.  Hopefully we'll get off the starting line with as few hiccups as possible ...

...like it's still article-specific, rather than site-wide? Or do I just not know what I'm doing?

FYI for the side admins - I can't write in the comment box without clicking the "Disable rich-text" button. I can't seem to get a cursor to show up in the box. Once I go to the simple text interface, all seems to work fine.

The box I get when I arrive at the site appears random again. I posted a series of thoughts re: the all-star game in one of the magical mystery shout boxes. Now I can't find it.

How can we have a conversation if we have no control over where the conversation appears?

Just as soon as we get it up and running ... it fritzes out again.  Sorry.

One consolation is:  the kahunas have signed off on the 'Box we're after.  We'll keep workin' it.
