#1 Only problem is with the display characteristics of the Category, Views/comments columns. The font sizes are very small and thin and the information runs together. I like to be able to clearly see which posts are getting the comments and it's very hard to pick out with this layout.

#2 I liked when articles were listed in chronological posting order - I could easily see if there were any new posts

#4 I DO like the the "view all of Sunday..." and "View all of Saturday..." tabs!

#5 There's a Posting Order link along the top that'll give you the current page in posting order, most recent first. Or you can use WoT Research to see everything in posting order.

#7 errr. I just recently put up that Pg 2 Egypt/gas deal post and it shows it way down in the listing for that page, even under "posting order" tabbing?

#8 The problem is those two buttons are presented in context with the rest of the buttons, which are for Page 1, Page 2, etc. They miss the eye. Moreover, it is not at all intuitive what a button called "WoT Research" is supposed to do. I certainly didn't expect it to "list all articles in posting order".

#9 For me it shows as the first article on Page 2, top of the page. Or were you referring to the headlines?

#10 I don't care what Fred makes it look like, as long as it's still here tomorrow and tomorrow, etc.

#11 FF 11.0. Looks like I'm sorting pages alphabetically by "Category" in the page Index

#12 "Hi there, Bright Pebbles!" is in the HTML above the DOCTYPE declaration and this isn't good as DOCTYPE should be the first line. move it into the < HEAD > in a < ! -- comment

#18 http://www.rantburg.com/editArticle.php?E=undefined

Error in query: SELECT * from tbltwar where ID=undefined. Unknown column 'undefined' in 'where clause'

Link from Edit article "pen" icon

Also looks like injectable SQL, v bad.

#19 A style suggestion: On the front page, boldface the number of comments to make them stand out against the number of views. Color doesn't provide much "contrast" given such a lightly stroked small font.
