#3183 closed enhancement (fixed)

The Read More functionality

Reported by: ezd's profile Ezd Owned by: djpaul's profile DJPaul
Milestone: 1.5 Priority: normal
Severity: Version: 1.5
Component: Activity Keywords:



Just noticed the new Read More button when your posting a long update.

  • On my computer it takes a few seconds for the text to "fold out" right after I click the button. Any chance we could add the loading icon/gif to this action?
  • When the text folds out, is there any way it can do it any smoother? Sometimes it's hacking a bit.

I'm using Safari 5.0.5 by the way. (haven't tested with other browsers)

Does anyone else fancy testing this on a few different browsers? Test against and on

No problem with adding a spinner but would be interested to investigate this animation speed issue further. How large an update are we talking? A paragraph, lots of paragraphs?

Ok just tested this using Firefox 4. Again, it takes a bit time for the text to fold out and it's not as smooth as it maybe could be. So same behavior as with Safari 5.

(BTW. if I click on the "Load More" button on the activity stream, find a long update with the "Read More" button, it jumps to the perma-link page when I click it instead of just showing the text". Just not sure if you guys are aware of that. :-))

Ezd, I've added a loading spinner for the AJAX call. I've slowed down the animation fractionally, but I tested against Safari 5, Firefox 2 & 4, Chrome 11, Opera 11.10 (all on Mac) and IE9 (Windows 7) with a very large text sample. I couldn't recreate any significant slowdown. Can you update your install and test the new spinner please?

Hi Paul, can I test it on I'm currently unable to test on my own installation due to some server changes. If not, perhaps someone else can test out the new changes..?

Ok just tested this and it's much better now, especially with the spinner. I think a slow down on the ajax effect helped a bit too.
